Reveal healthier, younger-looking skin

CO2 laser just became a lot cooler.

CoolPeel™ is a brand new way to safely, and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment.  By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is gently removed, revealing younger and healthier looking skin.

How does CoolPeel™ work?
Ablative laser treatment is a technique for eliminating blemished areas from the skin and improving lines and irregularities that result from ageing process and sun damage. CoolPeel™ is a brand new way to safely, and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment.  By targeting just the superficial layer of skin tissue, damaged skin is removed revealing younger and healthier looking skin.
How is CoolPeel™ different to other treatments?

How is CoolPeel™ different to other treatments?

Standard fractional CO2 treatment do deeper into the skin and are often accompanied by considerable downtime and risk while damaged skin heals. The CoolPeel™ technique can deliver a fractional ablative treatment without the downtime. The laser delivers high energy in extremely short-pulses, leading to superficial, skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin. The lack of unnecessary heat is why we call it cool. Without the lingering heat, there is minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or induced infection.

What are the benefits of CoolPeel™ treatment?

Benefits of this treatment include the possible reduction or elimination of unsightly pigmented lesion like solar spots or uneven skin colour. Lines and wrinkles may be improved and unevenness due to acne scarring improved.

What is the expected downtime?

One of the main benefits of a CoolPeel™ is that there is minimal downtime. You should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for a day, or two, but nothing should prevent you from returning to your normal daily activities.  Sometimes the skin can feel a little itchy immediate afterwards. Your skin may feel dry and scaly for up to a week as it heals so it is important to keep the skin hydrated.

How many treatments will I need?

Although you are likely to see and feel a difference in the quality of your skin after a single treatment, we recommend a course of 3 treatments to see optimal results.
Treatments are usually spaced 3-4 weeks apart.

 

Emcyte PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Posted: 22 September 2016

Emcyte Pure PRP® is a rejuvenation therapy that concentrates the cells found in your own blood to create anti-ageing treatments to stimulate regeneration in your skin.

What Can Emcyte Pure PRP® Be Used To Treat?

Emcyte achieves natural-looking results including restoring natural volume,  improving dull and tired skin, and skin tightening.  Treatments include:

  • Total Face Rejuvenation
  • Jaw Line Definition
  • Neck Tightening
  • Peri Oral Lines (Lines Around The Mouth)
  • Peri Orbital Lines (Lines Around The Eyes)
  • Lip Regeneration
  • Post Pregnancy Concerns
  • Hands and Arms
  • Ageing Knees
  • Decollete

Emcyte can also be used for post-menopausal  women’s health treatments, female sexual enhancement, hair restoration, and sports medicine treatments such as tendon injuries, ligament damage and osteoarthritis.

How Do Platelets Stimulate Regeneration?

Platelets are cells in your blood that respond when a blood vessel is damaged.  In addition platelets play an important role in healing by releasing growth factors and stimulating a cascade of processes that lead to tissue repair.

Platelets also assist to stimulate Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) in the skin to change from resting to active phase.  The MSCs will form new tissue such collagen, elastin, muscle, nerves, blood vessels, etc., thus assisting to restore the structure of your skin.

The Right Cells At The Right Concentration

To deliver effective rejuvenation the platelets must be concentrated to around five to nine times the baseline level found in your blood.  In addition, red blood cells must be removed and nutrients such as amino acids, electrolytes, saccharides, and other micro-nutrients must be present in the right amounts.

White blood cells such as neutrophils and monocytes also play important roles in skin rejuventation treatments.  Neutrophils assist in the removal of damaged tissue in preparation for new tissue regeneration.  Monocytes are white blood cells that convert into two types of macrophages in skin tissue (M1 or M2). M1 will remove debris, pathogens, bacteria and fibrotic tissue, allowing for a new layer of healthy collagen and elastin. M2 send messenger chemicals to stimulate fibroblasts to repair and regenerate the skin.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

Typically an initial course of three treatments spaced over 6 to 12 weeks is recommended.  In order to counteract ongoing ageing of the skin a regular maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months will assist to maintain results.

Emcyte Pure-PRP® can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with other therapies such as Fractional Resurfacing, IPL, Skin Needling, and more.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

One of the advantages of Emcyte Pure PRP® is that sample collection, processing and treatment injection can occur in a single appointment.  Most treatments will typically  be completed in 30 to 60 minutes.  There is typically no down time, with mild swelling for a day or two.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Within a week of treatments many patients notice improved hydration in the skin.  Changes such as improved skin volume and structure generally occur within 30 days and improvements can continue for up to 90 days.

Skin Tightening

Forma™ – Radio-Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening

What is Forma™?

Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve skin elasticity for long-lasting improvement of your skin’s appearance.

How does Forma™ work?

Forma was developed based on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire, Control, Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology uses radio-frequency energy to target deep layers of the skin, with no area being under or over treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results.

Is Forma™ for me?

Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural looking approach to improvements in skin tone and texture irregularities. Patients have reported that their skin feels smoother and more defined with less wrinkles.

Wrinkles – Fine Lines

Posted: 10 December 2013

Photo Rejuvenation and Photo Facials

Non-ablative photo-rejuvenation is used to improve the appearance, colour and texture of the skin without any downtime that could limit your work and social activities.

Numerous laser and light sources are used for non-ablative photo-rejuvenation and the different colours and wavelengths of light selectively target a certain structures or colours (chromophores) in the skin.  The aim is to:

  • Stimulate the production of new collagen in the skin
  • Normalise certain vascular or pigments in the skin
  • Plump up the skin,
  • Improve skin texture, and / or,
  • Smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Non-ablative photo-rejuvenation uses light sources that penetrate the skin to different depths without damaging the surface of the skin.  The advantages of photo-rejuvenation are it is completely non-invasive and the recovery time is rapid.

While Photo-rejuvenation is effective for general facial rejuvenation deeper wrinkles may be better targeted by DOT Therapy and more advanced laxity on the face and neck may find Ultherapy provides a greater degree of improvement while still providing the benefits of non-surgical, no-downtime treatments.

Acne Scar Reduction

Acne Scar Reduction With DOT Therapy

Scarring from acne can involve a thinning of the skin layers and loss of elasticity and tone, the severity of which will depend on the duration of the acne.  The DOT Therapy laser can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars through a combination of skin texture improvement and the stimulation of new collagen in the skin.

How DOT Therapy Can Treat Acne Scars

The DOT Therapy laser can be used to perform a fractional laser treatment which uses a micro-ablative laser pulse to smooth the skin texture with minmal downtime.  This can assist to level the edges of the acne scars.  Thanks to the exclusive Smartpulse technology, the CO2 SmartXide DOT fractioned source is also able to stimulate the production of new collagen, acting in depth and not just on the outer part of the lesions.

The DOT Therapy laser also has has specific laser hand pieces that allow your doctor to individually contour the edges of certain types of acne scars to achieve the best result in the least amount of treatments.

Wrinkle Reduction

Posted: 17 July 2013

Achieve Natural Looking Wrinkle Reduction With DOT Therapy Laser

You don’t gain wrinkles in your skin – you lose collagen. DOT Therapy Fractional laser treatments work with your natural facial structure by targeting the layers in the skin that produce collagen.

While injectable wrinkle reduction treatments using toxins like Botox can alter a person’s expression, DOT Therapy treatments help to stimulate new collagen under the skin that restores the structure of the skin and delivers a more natural looking result.

Precisely Controlled Laser Energy To Stimulate New Collagen

ablative-fractional-laser-skin-effectDOT therapy uses hundreds of tiny pillars of laser energy to penetrate the skin and stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The laser ablates a small percentage of the skin while leaving healthy tissue in between. DOT Therapy delivers enough heat to stimulate the production of new collagen while leaving the skin able to heal in a few days.

DOT Therapy allows treatment parameters such as treatment area shape, depth of ablation, overall heating and downtime to be tailored to the patient’s skin and lifestyle.

Rather than a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach the doctor can, for example, change the shape of the DOT pattern to suit the shape of the body part being treated and minimise areas of treatment overlap, or alter parameters related to the strength of treatment to match the desired results or downtime to the patient’s lifestyle.  This is particularly important when treating delicate areas such as the wrinkles around the mouth or eyes.

Facial Veins

Improve The Appearance Of Prominent Veins On The Face

Laser Facial Vein Treatments For Fast, Non-Surgical Results

Target visible facial veins or vascular lesions such as telangiectasias, haemangiomas, erythrosis, or small Port Wine Stain (PWS) and improve the confidence you have in the appearance of your skin.  Laser treatments use targeted laser light to non-invasively target the pigment contained in the blood inside the vein. The laser energy rapidly heats and coagulates the blood in the vein and causes it to collapse and seal. In the weeks following treatment the vein is naturally reabsorbed by the body and disappears.

Laser vein treatments are generally walk in, walk out treatments that are comfortable and require no downtime.

About Laser Vein Removal With The Nd:YAG Laser

Due to its lower absorption by melanin in the skin the Synchro Replay laser wavelength is able to treat visually prominent veins. Deeper vessels of greater diameter and varying structure can also be treated by this wavelength.

To find out if you are suitable for laser vein treatments go to our clinic locations to arrange a consultation.

Teeth Whitening

Wold-Leading Non-Acidic Teeth Whitening Using Laser and 3LT Laser-Like Light

Miss Universe Teeth Whitening Treatment

Long-Lasting Whitening From A Single One Hour Treatment

Smartbleach® is a one-of-a-kind teeth whitening solution.  It combines a unique, non-acidic gel with a specific wavelength of light that is capable of targeting stained molecules in the teeth.  The result is the gold standard in highly-consistent, natural-looking teeth-whitening.  Best of all the results are long-lasting!

The Smartbleach® photodynamic teeth whitening treatment  is highly effective yet gentle on the tooth enamel.  The techniques used in the Smartbleach® teeth whitening treatment are a result of extensive research over more than 15 years.

Why Smartbleach Is Only Available At Dental Clinics

Non-dental teeth whitening providers, and manufacturers of home use tooth whitening trays and tooth paste, are only permitted to use low concentrations of the hydrogen peroxide whitening agent (6% hydrogen peroxide or equivalent) in the chemicals they use.  These systems will only deliver a limited whitening effect with each application and require many weeks to achieve an effect.  In addition they produce the whitening effect by dehydrating the teeth and etching the enamel.  As the teeth rehydrate the whitening effect will degrade and ongoing maintenance with acidic-peroxide whitening trays is necessary to stop the whitening effect from disappearing.

Your Smartbleach dental clinic is permitted to use concentrations of peroxide that are many times higher than non-dental teeth whitening.  In addition, the Smartbleach whitening gel is non-acidic and will-not etch the enamel or dehydrate the tooth structure.  This means the results of the Smartbleach treatment are long-lasting and will not bounce back in the days following treatment.

Trained operators in dental clinics can deliver the high quality treatment and your teeth will be properly checked to see that there are no minor cracks in your teeth that could cause discomfort if not identified prior to a teeth-whitening treatment.

A Patented Gel Activated By Pure Green Light From Smartlight 3LT Or Laser

Smartbleach® uses a special laser or Smartlight 3LT equipment to produce pure green light from the sunlight spectrum and matches this to a Smartbleach® patented non-acidic, whitening gel. The green light makes the gel more reactive and directly targets stained molecules in the tooth.  It achieves this with virtually no heating of the healthy tooth structure, which reduces the chance of post-treatment sensitivity and increases treatment safety.

A typical Smartbleach® teeth whitening treatment lasts 45-50 minutes with the new 3LT teeth whitening system, or around 60 to 90 minutes with the Smartbleach laser. Firstly, the teeth are cleaned and dried by the dentist. A protective coating is applied to the gums and then the special Smartbleach® red gel is applied to the teeth and the green light is applied to the teeth. An exciting aspect of Smartbleach® is that the results are visible immediately, so you can judge for yourself, after each application, when you have reached the desired result.

HydraFacial Facial Rejuvenation Treatment

Beyond MicroDermabrasion and Hydradermabrasion

HydraFacial clinics around Australia, which include some of Australia’s top cosmetic medicine practitioners, frequently comment that the results of HydraFacial are far more comprehensive than traditional microdermabrasion and Hydradermabrasion (diamond microdermabrasion with fluid to wash away the debris off the skin).  The unique HydraFacial treatment technology utilises the following processes:

  • Deep cleansing and exfoliation using the patented spiral HydraFacial tip
  • An acid peel
  • Painless extractions of the pores
  • Hydration and infusion of anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acid

The HydraFacial performs a mild form of dermabrasion during the treatment but with far less risk of skin irritation than traditional treatments.  And when combined with HydraFacial serums, and the wholistic multi-stage process above, the HydraFacial enters a class of its own.

What The Research Says About HydraFacial

In several published studies conducted by leading U.S. plastic surgeon Bruce M. Freedman, MD, FACS, author of over 40 publications in medical journals and textbooks, the HydraFacial®  hydradermabrasion technology was clinically proven to be effective for facial rejuvenation. Key findings include:

  • After hydradermabrasion, skin polyphenolic antioxidant levels were increased by 30%.  However, manual application of antioxidants alone did not result in increased level of polyphenolic antioxidants.
  • A series of hydradermabrasion treatments resulted in epidermal and papillary dermal thickening with deposition of new collagen fibers.
  • A majority of patients reported significant or noticeable improvements in all of the surveyed skin conditions.  Qualitatively, decreased pore size, decreased fine lines, and decreased hyperpigmentation were most commonly observed.

HydraFacial treatments were also found to enhance the results of light-based skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser and IPL.

Build Skin Health For Life With Regular HydraFacial Treatments

With regular monthly HydraFacials the levels of antioxidants in your skin will build and the results of each treatment last for longer.  The next time you are thinking of pamering yourself with a facial, try HydraFacial and experience the treatment that is adding a new level of rejuvenation with absolutely no surgery or downtime.
