ABOUT COSMETIC TREATMENTS
Healthy and youthful looking skin is very important for our general wellbeing but also how other people see us. In Queensland, the harsh and unforgiving sun, together with the natural ageing process and skin disorders can make our skin look old and tired. Poor tone, wrinkles and fine lines, blotchy pigmentation and redness all affect the look of our skin.
If you are worried about scars on your face as the result of acne, we can help you! We recommend to make an appointment with our dermatologist to discuss treatment options for you. We are currently offering peels, radiofrequency and laser treatments for acne scars. We are happy to discuss which options are best for you and what results to expect.
FACIAL REDNESS AND BROKEN CAPILLARIES
Redness, prominent veins and blood vessels (telangiectasia) are common vascular problems affecting the face, neck and chest, and are a visible sign of sun damage and some medical conditions such as rosacea. We can offer you vascular laser and BBL treatments which work very effectively.
Rosacea is a very common skin condition, particularly in people with fair skin and history of sun exposure. Does your face often look red? Do you blush easily? Do you have unsightly capillaries on your nose and face that you find yourself trying to hide with makeup?
Spider veins are a common problem and are often the result of a genetic tendency or occur after pregnancy. For superficial leg veins we can offer effective vascular laser treatment. Please enquire to see if your veins are suitable for this treatment.
Vascular birthmarks often gradually fade with time. Some will stay very prominent, especially port wine stains and respond very well to laser and light treatment.
Also pigmented birthmarks can be treated with excellent cosmetic outcomes.
Over time, the aging process causes our skin to change; we are developing wrinkles, uneven pigmention and often an increased dryness. The skin also loses its volume and becomes thin and fragile. When the natural skin-ageing process (called intrinsic ageing) is combined with excessive sunlight exposure or smoking(extrinsic aging), further pre-mature ageing develops, and irregular pigmentation, redness and further wrinkling can compound the problem.
Acute and chronic UV light exposure causes premature ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, redness and broken capillaries, as well as irregular pigmentation to our skin. Protecting our skin from the harmful effects of the sun is paramount to minimise the damage it can cause to our skin.
Once the damage is done there are multiple treatments available to reverse the signs. We offer, cream treatments, PDT, IPL and laser treatments with amazing results.
Sun exposure over many years leats to sun spots, age spots, freckles and discolouration. These changes to the colour of the skin are usually seen in combination with fine lines and wrinkles and many small blood vessels (telangiectasia) on the skin. Many people find they are increasingly relying on make-up to cover pigmentation, blemishes and redness.
We offer IPL and laser treatments with outstanding results.
Melasma is a common condition causing blotchy, brown discolouration of the skin on the face. It is commonly seen on the forehead, cheeks and to some degree on the upper lip and chin. It is more common in women and in people with darker skin types. Often there is an inherited predisposition to the problem. It is often a persistent and embarrassing skin condition.
Many of us, women and men alike, suffer from too much hair in the wrong places. We have a number of effective treatments in the control of unwanted hair – they include medical-grade IPL and also cream treatments slowing down unwanted hair growth.
Medical grade IPL controls larger areas of unwanted hair and works best on dark pigmented hair. Fine blond hair will not respond to laser or IPL hair removal.
