Cosmetic

Cosmetic therapies are continuing to increase in popularity as people become more aware of safe and effective treatments for facial wrinkles and lines, facial volume loss, pigmentation, unsightly facial veins and capillaries, dermal and epidermal damage due to the sun and ageing.

We use several modalities to address these areas of concern.

Anti Wrinkle treatments

These cosmetic injections can be carried out by Dr James Barnes, Dr Jim Annear and Dr Shaun Walsh.

Muscle Relaxing Injections

As we age, we often develop lines and wrinkles. Some are caused by repeated muscle movement, for example the frown lines between the eyes. We can treat these by relaxing the muscles with injections and enabling skin to rejuvenate. Results usually last for around 3 -4 months and it takes just a few days to see the benefits. This will also prevent lines from worsening and new lines from developing.

Dermal Fillers

One of the most noticeable facial lines is the line between the nose and mouth, the ‘nasolabial line’. Lines like this form when the fat and soft tissue, which usually sits high on our cheeks, start to lower. Sometimes this can be combined with deeper ‘tear troughs’ and volume loss in the cheek area which can lead to a reduced youthful fullness in the mid-face. Volume loss also occurs in the lower face and temple area. We can use dermal fillers to correct this by restoring lost volume. These are made from a substance called hyalauronic acid, a gel which lasts between 6 and 18 months. These fillers are safe to use and results are seen immediately, with little down time.

Lip Filler

Lips can be volumised or just simply defined by using dermal fillers specifically designed for the lip area. As we age, the border of the lip can sometimes lose definition and lipstick can bleed and small lines can develop. Small amounts of dermal fillers can help with this and create a more youthful look, in a natural way.

Acne scarring, open pores, fine lines and wrinkles can be treated with a variety of treatments which our Laser Clinicians, Kerrie and Linda, can discuss with you.  Most of these treatments work by stimulating the skin to produce more collagen and elastin.

Microdermabrasion

Our Easypeel diamond tip system softly lifts up the skin surface using a vacuum, and comfortably exfoliates the epidermis (top layer of skin), leaving your skin soft and smooth, perfect for:

  • congested skin
  • active acne
  • extraction of blackheads and white heads

Microdermabrasion is also safe to use in pregnancy.  It can be done as a one-off treatment to refresh the skin or a course to maintain results, and can be used in combination with the Easy Peels to enhance results.

Genesis Laser

This gentle laser treatment has very little down time and is designed to treat fine lines, large pores, improve skin texture and redness. This treatment is usually used as a course at weekly or fortnightly intervals. Patients often describe this treatment as relaxing and therapeutic.  It works by gently heating up the dermis (deeper layer of skin) which stimulates collagen growth. Treatment is safe and doesn’t carry many side effects, only slight redness for an hour after treatment.
