  • Are the results of Alma Soprano Titanium treatments immediate?
    The results of Alma Soprano Titanium skin lifting treatments are not typically immediate. Collagen production and skin tightening are gradual processes. It may take several sessions to see noticeable improvements, and full results may become apparent over several weeks to months.
  • How many sessions are usually required for optimal results?
    The number of sessions required can vary depending on individual factors and the specific treatment goals. On average, multiple sessions are recommended, often spaced a few weeks apart, to achieve the best results. Our dermal therapist can provide a personalised treatment plan based on your needs.
  • How does Alma Soprano Titanium help with skin lifting?
    Alma Soprano Titanium uses advanced laser technology to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that contributes to skin elasticity and firmness. By promoting collagen production, the treatment helps tighten and lift the skin.
  • Is Alma Soprano Titanium safe for all skin types?
    Alma Soprano Titanium is generally considered safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. However, it’s essential to consult with our dermal therapist who can assess your specific skin characteristics and recommend the most suitable settings for your treatment.
  • Is there any downtime after Alma Soprano Titanium skin lifting treatments?
    One of the advantages of Alma Soprano Titanium is that it is a non-invasive treatment with minimal downtime. Some individuals may experience mild redness or swelling immediately after treatment, but these side effects usually resolve quickly, allowing individuals to resume their regular activities.
  • Are Alma Soprano Titanium skin lifting treatments painful?
    Alma Soprano Titanium is designed to be a relatively painless treatment. Most individuals describe the sensation as a mild warmth or tingling during the procedure. The system’s IN-Motion technology and built-in cooling system help minimise discomfort.
  • How is the Alma Accent Prime different from other radiofrequency devices?
    The Alma Accent Prime uses the latest technology in radiofrequency. The platform includes the most advanced innovations patented Unipolar™ radiofrequency to deliver fast, elective, and highly customisable treatments with long lasting results.
  • Is the treatment painful?
    Gradual heating and an integrated cooling system make for a virtually pain free treatment. Majority of our clients liken the feeling to a hot stone massage.
  • How does Accent Prime face skin contouring work?
    Radiofrequency technology produces thermal stimulation, which creates an immediate and temporary change in the helical structure of the collagen. Accent Prime™ uses the latest development of RF which involves the emission of electromagnetic radiation rather than a current, which is referred to as unipolar, so no grounding.
  • Pricing & Packages
    UniFace RF skin tightening: 1 treatment: $490 3 treatments: $1190 6 treatments: $1990
  • Will I experience downtime after the Alma Accent Prime treatment?
    No, there is no downtime with the Alma Accent Prime. However, everyone’s skin reacts differently, and it is best to consult with our doctors.
  • When can I see the results?
    The results of Sculptra injections develop gradually over time as the body's collagen production increases in response to the treatment. Most patients begin to see initial improvements in their skin texture and volume within a few weeks to a couple of months after their first treatment session. However, it's important to note that individual responses to Sculptra can vary. Some patients may notice subtle changes earlier, while for others, it may take longer for the results to become apparent. The full effects of Sculptra typically become more noticeable after the completion of the recommended series of treatment sessions, which may span several months.
  • Side effects
    Sculptra injections are generally considered safe and well-tolerated. Like any medical procedure, they can be associated with potential side effects. It's essential to discuss these risks with our doctors before undergoing treatment.
  • How many treatments do I need?
    For facial rejuvenation purposes, it's common for patients to undergo two to three treatment sessions with Sculptra. These sessions are usually scheduled about four to six weeks apart. During each session, the healthcare provider will inject Sculptra into specific areas of the face to stimulate collagen production and improve volume and contour.
  • How does Sculptra treatment work?
    Once the treatment area is prepared, our doctor will inject Sculptra into specific areas of the face using a fine needle or cannula. The injections are typically performed in areas where volume loss or wrinkles are present, such as the cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or temples. The number of injections and the amount of Sculptra used will depend on your individual needs and goals.
  • Pricing & Packages
    Sculptra 1 vial: $790
  • Side effects
    Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair restoration is generally considered safe and well-tolerated.
  • Downtime
    The downtime associated with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair restoration is typically minimal, allowing patients to resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure. Unlike surgical hair restoration procedures, PRP therapy is minimally invasive and does not require a significant recovery period.
  • How many treatments do I need?
    We suggest an initial series of three to four treatments, with each session spaced approximately four to six weeks apart. This spacing allows time for the growth factors in the PRP to stimulate hair follicles and for the patient to observe any changes in hair growth. After the initial series of treatments, some patients may continue with maintenance sessions every few months to sustain the results. The exact number and frequency of maintenance sessions can vary based on the individual's response to treatment and their ongoing hair loss concerns.
  • How does PRP procedure works?
    The procedure consists of drawing your own blood, usually from your arm, spinning it down into three layers in a centrifuge, and injecting only the best plasma rich in platelets into your scalp through micro needling. If you can get routine blood tests done by your doctor and you are immunized regularly, PRP treatment won’t be too different from what you are already used to.
  • Pricing and packages
    Treatments start from $90. The total cost will depend on the size of the area treated. We recommend booking a consultation with our doctors to discuss the cost of the procedure.
  • How many treatments do I need?
    In many cases, a single HIFU Ultra Lift treatment divided in 2 sessions is sufficient to achieve noticeable results. The procedure is designed to stimulate collagen production and induce skin tightening with just one treatment. However, the number of sessions required can vary based on individual factors, such as the degree of skin laxity, the specific areas being treated, and the desired outcome. Some people may choose to undergo additional HIFU sessions for further enhancement or to address evolving concerns over time. Maintenance treatments can also be considered to prolong the results.
  • Downtime
    One of the advantages of HIFU Ultra Lift is that it typically involves minimal downtime compared to more invasive cosmetic procedures. Most people can resume their normal activities shortly after the treatment. However, individual experiences may vary, and some individuals may experience temporary mild side effects such as bruising, tenderness, or numbness in the treated areas. These effects are generally temporary and resolve on their own.
  • What are the results?
    Skin Tightening: One of the primary benefits of HIFU Ultra Lift is the tightening of loose or sagging skin. As the procedure stimulates collagen production, the skin gradually becomes firmer, leading to a more lifted appearance. Improved Skin Texture: Patients often report improvements in skin texture and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The increased collagen production contributes to smoother and more youthful-looking skin. Gradual Results: While some patients may see initial improvements shortly after the procedure, the full benefits of HIFU Ultra Lift usually develop over time. Collagen production continues in the months following the treatment, contributing to a gradual and natural-looking transformation.
  • How long will the results last for?
    The results of HIFU Ultra Lift are long-lasting, and many patients experience improvements that can last for a year or more. However, individual responses to the treatment can vary, and maintenance sessions may be considered to prolong the effects.
  • How does HIFU Ultra Lift work?
    HIFU Ultra Lift works by utilising focused ultrasound energy to penetrate the skin and target specific layers of tissue beneath the surface. The key principles of how HIFU works include: Focused Ultrasound Energy Delivery: Once the target depth is identified, the HIFU Ultra Lift device delivers focused ultrasound energy to precise locations within the skin. This energy generates heat, which stimulates the production of collagen—a protein responsible for skin firmness and elasticity. Collagen Stimulation: The heat generated by the ultrasound energy triggers a natural wound-healing response in the body. As a result, fibroblasts, the cells responsible for collagen production, are activated. Over time, the increased production of collagen helps to tighten and lift the skin. It's important to note that HIFU Ultra Lift works on the deeper layers of the skin without causing damage to the outer layer. This non-invasive approach distinguishes it from surgical facelifts and other more invasive cosmetic procedures.

  • What does a medical skin check involve?
    During a medical skin check, one of the doctors will typically examine your entire body, including the scalp, face, neck, chest, back, arms, hands, legs, feet, and even between the toes. They will visually inspect your skin and may use a magnifying instrument called a dermatoscope to examine moles, freckles, or other areas of concern in more detail. If the doctor notices any suspicious or concerning lesions, they may perform a biopsy. A biopsy involves taking a small sample of the skin tissue for further examination under a microscope to determine if it is benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Biopsies are generally quick and relatively painless procedures.
  • What is a medical skin check?
    A medical skin check, also known as a skin examination or dermatological examination, is a procedure to assess the condition of a person's skin. The purpose of a medical skin check is to identify and evaluate any abnormal or potentially cancerous growths, lesions, or changes on the skin.
  • How often medical skin checks are recommended?
    It's important to have regular medical skin checks, especially if you have a family history of skin cancer, have had extensive sun exposure, or have noticed any changes in your skin. Additionally, it's recommended to practice regular self-examinations of your skin to identify any new or changing lesions.
  • What does the procedure involve?
    The procedure begins with the extraction of a small amount of fat from a donor site on the patient's body, usually through liposuction. The extracted fat is then processed to separate the larger fat cells from the smaller ones. The smaller fat cells, known as nanofat, are rich in stem cells, growth factors, and other regenerative components. Once the nanofat is prepared, it is injected into specific areas of the face or other targeted areas requiring rejuvenation. The injections are performed using very fine needles or cannulas, allowing for precise placement of the nanofat.
  • What is Nano fat transfer?
    Nano fat transfer, also known as nanofat grafting or nanofat injection, is a cosmetic procedure that involves the extraction and reinjection of fat cells for facial rejuvenation.
  • Pricing and packages
    Consultation required to request a quote
  • What results can I expect?
    Nanofat transfer doesn't add volume to the face but improves skin quality, texture, and overall appearance. The stem cells and growth factors present in the nanofat can help stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and enhance the overall health of the treated area. It can be used to address concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin tone.
  • Is it painful?
    Nano fat transfer is typically well-tolerated by patients, and discomfort during the procedure is generally minimal. Local anesthesia is commonly used to numb the areas being treated, which helps ensure a comfortable experience for the patient. During the liposuction phase, which involves harvesting the fat from a donor site, you may feel some pressure and movement, but it should not be painful. The area being treated is typically numbed with local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort.
  • How many treatments do I need?
    Depending on individual factors, desired outcomes, and the assessment of the cosmetic surgeon, a single treatment may be sufficient, while others may require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
  • Downtime
    Nanofat transfer typically involves minimal downtime. Some people may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites, but these effects usually subside within a few days to a week.
  • When can I expect the results?
    It can take up to a year or more to see the full and final results of an FUE hair transplant. By this time, the transplanted hairs should have matured, and their growth pattern should be well-established. The appearance should be natural, and the density should be close to that of surrounding hair.
  • Downtime
    Most people can resume their normal activities within a week or two after the FUE procedure. However, it's important to follow our doctor instructions regarding the timeline for activities such as exercise, swimming, or wearing hats.
  • What is FUE hair restoration?
    FUE hair restoration is a surgical procedure that involves moving hair follicles from one part of the body, known as the donor site, to another part where hair loss or thinning has occurred, known as the recipient site.
  • Pricing and packages
    We are happy to price guide after your consultation. Our FUE procedure is accessible and affordable without the need to travel overseas.
  • How long does the treatment take?
    The length of the actual FUE procedure can vary significantly depending on the number of grafts being transplanted. On average, an FUE session can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours. This estimate includes the time required for donor area preparation, extraction of grafts, recipient site creation, and graft placement.
  • What does the procedure involve?
    The hair transplantation procedure involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area and their transplantation to the recipient site where hair loss or thinning has occurred. This method is called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
  • Is it painful?
    During an FUE hair transplant procedure, local anesthesia is used to numb the donor and recipient areas of the scalp. This helps minimize discomfort and pain during the surgery. Most patients report feeling little to no pain during the procedure itself.
  • Are the results permanent?
    Yes, the results of an FUE hair transplant are generally considered permanent. Since the transplanted hairs are taken from areas of the scalp that are not genetically susceptible to hair loss, they are expected to retain their characteristics even after transplantation. This means that the transplanted hairs should continue to grow and survive in the recipient area for the long term.
  • Downtime
    PDT generally involves minimal downtime compared to more invasive procedures. It's crucial to follow our doctors' instructions and allow your skin adequate time to heal.
  • Is it painful?
    When the target area is exposed to the wavelength of light, people may experience a sensation of warmth, tingling, or mild discomfort at the treatment site. The discomfort is generally well-tolerated and transient.
  • How does it work?
    It uses a light-sensitive solution (ALA activator) which is applied to the affected skin. The skin is then exposed to a specialized light source leading to the destruction of the damaged skin cells.
  • Who is suitable for PDT?
    Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can be suitable for various people depending on the specific medical condition being treated. Here are some examples of conditions and patient groups that may benefit from PDT: Skin Cancer: PDT can be used for certain types of skin cancer, such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, especially in cases where surgical or other treatment options may not be ideal. It is often effective for superficial or early-stage skin cancers. Precancerous Lesions: PDT can be used to treat precancerous skin lesions, such as actinic keratoses. These lesions are often caused by long-term sun exposure and have the potential to develop into skin cancer. PDT can help eliminate these abnormal cells and prevent their progression. Acne: PDT can be used to treat moderate to severe acne that has not responded well to other treatments. The light and photosensitizing agent used in PDT can target and destroy the bacteria responsible for acne and reduce oil production in the skin. Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD): In ophthalmology, PDT can be employed to treat certain cases of age-related macular degeneration, a condition that affects the central vision. PDT is used to target and destroy abnormal blood vessels in the retina, slowing down the progression of the disease. Other Conditions: PDT has also been explored for the treatment of various other conditions, including certain types of cancers (e.g., lung cancer, esophageal cancer), certain infections (e.g., skin infections, oral infections), and some non-cancerous skin conditions (e.g., psoriasis, rosacea). It's important to note that the suitability of PDT for a person depends on several factors, including the specific medical condition, its stage or severity, the location of the target area, and the individual's overall health. Our doctors can assess an individual's suitability for PDT and determine the most appropriate treatment approach based on their specific circumstances.
  • What is PDT Photodynamic Therapy?
    Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a minimal invasive medical treatment that uses a combination of light and a photosensitizing agent to selectively destroy abnormal or cancerous cells. It is commonly used for treating various skin conditions, including certain types of skin cancer, precancerous lesions, and acne.
  • What is the healing time?
    The healing time after photodynamic therapy (PDT) can vary depending on several factors, including the specific condition being treated, the size and location of the treated area, and individual variations in healing processes. Usually for superficial skin conditions like acne or actinic keratoses, the healing time is relatively short. The treated area may experience redness, swelling, and some mild discomfort for a few days to a couple of weeks. The skin may peel or flake during this time. Complete healing and resolution of side effects usually occur within a few weeks. For certain types of skin cancer treated with PDT, such as basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, the healing time may be longer. It can take several weeks for the treated area to heal completely. During this period, the skin may develop scabs, crusts, or blisters that gradually resolve. The healing time can vary depending on the size, depth, and location of the tumor.
  • Pricing and packages
    PDT treatment from $240
  • Downtime
    Following treatment, your skin will experience some minor skin redness, like a mild sunburn. Some skin flaking can be expected in the days post-treatment, similar to a superficial peel. Thour skin may feel warm and flushed with minimal or no discomfort. Therapeutic peptide gels may be applied to the treated skin to reduce the redness. Redness generally resolves in 24 – 48 hours. It will also be necessary to apply sunscreen to the treated areas. Most people can return to work almost on the following day. Any residual redness can be calmed with soothing gels or mineral makeup.
  • How many treatments do I need?
    A treatment programme of 3 treatments, spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart is recommended to achieve the best results for reduction of sun damage, acne scars, enlarged pores and rough skin texture, fine lines and pigmentation. The number of treatment sessions required depends upon the individual patient and the condition being treated. Additional treatments may be needed to address deeper skin concerns. Our doctors will prescribe an appropriate treatment plan for your particular concern.
  • How long do the results last?
    The longevity of results is comparable to ablative laser resurfacing and as always is dependent on future ageing, the effects of gravity and sun exposure. Months to years.

  • How does it work?
    Unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, which removes the whole of the top layer of skin, this fractional method penetrates the skin in a grid of tiny energy beams, leaving the zones between the beams intact. This minimises treatment discomfort and allows for faster skin healing and minimal downtime. The result is collagen renewal and remodelling, fading of superficial pigmentation, skin tightening and a marked improvement in skin texture.
  • What skin concerns does iPixel laser treat?
    Skin Resurfacing: Skin texture & tone Fine lines and wrinkles Epidermal Pigmentation: Superficial pigmentation Freckles Sunspots Scars: Hypertrophic & atrophic Acne scars Stretch marks Benign raised lesions: Skin tags Warts Seborrheic keratosis
  • Downtime
    Sclerotherapy is generally considered a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime. Most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
  • When can I expect the results?
    You may start to notice some improvement in the appearance of treated veins within a few weeks to a couple of months after the procedure. However, it's important to keep in mind that the timeline for results can differ based on factors such as the size and type of veins treated, the individual's healing process, and the number of treatments undergone.
  • Pricing and packages
    Consultation: $75 Procedure price based on size
  • How many treatments do you recommend?
    For small spider veins, a few sessions may be sufficient to achieve significant improvement. Larger varicose veins typically require more treatments. On average, patients may undergo anywhere from two to six sclerotherapy sessions, spaced a few weeks to a few months apart, to address their specific vein concerns.
  • What does the procedure involve?
    During the procedure, our doctor uses a very fine needle to inject a sclerosing agent, such as a saline solution or a chemical irritant, into the targeted veins. The solution irritates the lining of the veins, causing them to swell, stick together, and eventually close off. Over time, the treated veins are absorbed by the body and gradually fade from view.
  • What is sclerotherapy?
    Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. It is a non-surgical method that involves injecting a solution directly into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and eventually fade away.
  • Is it painful?
    Sclerotherapy is generally well-tolerated, and most people experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. The level of pain or discomfort can vary from person to person, and it may depend on factors such as individual pain tolerance and the size and location of the veins being treated. During the injection of the sclerosing solution, some people may feel a mild burning or stinging sensation at the injection site. This sensation is usually temporary and subsides quickly. The discomfort is typically described as tolerable and brief.
  • Results and recovery
    After the laser treatment, the nails will continue to grow, and it may take several months for new, healthy nails to replace the infected ones. Improvement in the appearance and condition of the nails is typically observed over time. It's important to follow post-treatment care instructions to optimize healing and prevent reinfection.
  • What does the treatment involve?
    Fungal nail treatment aims to treating fungal nail infections (onychomycosis). The treatment method involves using laser energy to target and destroy the fungi that cause the infection.
  • Duration and discomfort
    The laser treatment session itself is relatively quick, typically lasting between 10 and 60 minutes, depending on the number of nails being treated. Some people may experience a mild warming or tingling sensation during the procedure, but it is generally tolerable.
  • How many sessions do you recommend?
    Most people undergo between two to four laser treatment sessions, spaced several weeks apart. However, in some cases, additional sessions may be necessary for optimal results. Our doctor will assess your specific situation and recommend the appropriate number of sessions based on the progress of your treatment and the improvement in your nails.
  • How does it work?
    During the treatment, our doctor will use a specialized laser device that emits concentrated light energy. The laser beam is directed onto the infected nail, targeting the fungi present in and around the nail bed. The laser energy penetrates the nail plate and heats the fungal cells, effectively damaging or destroying them. The goal is to eliminate the fungi without causing significant harm to the surrounding healthy tissue.
  • Pricing and packages
    Fungal nail Alma IPL treatments: 10 nails $190
  • Downtime
    The downtime is generally minimal. After undergoing vein laser therapy, it's common for patients to experience mild bruising, swelling, or discomfort in the treated area. These side effects usually subside within a few days or weeks. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure, although strenuous exercise and heavy lifting may be advised to be avoided for a short period.
  • How many treatments do you recommend?
    We recommend 3 - 6 treatments with 3 - 4 weeks apart.
  • How does it work?
    The laser uses infrared light into the target area. The light energy is then absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin with relatively low absorption by the melanin pigment. Once absorbed, the temperature within the abnormal blood vessels increases causing it to shrink. The treatment can be combined with IPL (Dye VL PRO) for smaller veins and capillaries. Both these technologies selectively target the problem blood vessels beneath the skin while cooling the skin surface thereby providing safe and effective long term results.
  • What is Alma ClearVein?
    Alma CLearVein is a long-pulse laser used for a long term non-invasive cosmetic treatment to reduce the appearance of vascular lesions and deep veins.
  • Pricing and packages

  • How long does the treatment take?
    A full facial treatment would take between 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
  • How does it work?
    During a VelaShape treatment session, the device is applied to the targeted area, and the combination of radiofrequency and infrared energy heats the underlying tissue. This heat helps to break down fat cells and stimulate collagen production, leading to smoother skin and improved body contours. The mechanical massage and vacuum assist in lymphatic drainage and further enhance the effects of the treatment.
  • How many sessions are recommended?
    In general, it is common to undergo 3 to 6 treatment sessions, with each session spaced about 1 to 2 weeks apart. This treatment schedule allows for gradual improvement over time and gives the body an opportunity to respond to the treatment.
  • What is VelaShape III?
    VelaShape III is an advanced version of the VelaShape body contouring treatment. It is a non-invasive procedure designed to reduce cellulite, tighten skin, and contour the body. VelaShape III combines multiple technologies, including infrared light, radiofrequency energy, vacuum, and mechanical massage, to target and treat cellulite effectively.
  • Downtime
    One of the advantages of VelaShape III is that it is a non-invasive procedure, which means it typically involves minimal downtime. After a VelaShape III treatment session, most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately without the need for recovery or downtime. You may experience some temporary side effects such as redness, warmth, or mild bruising in the treated area. These effects are generally mild and usually subside within a few hours to a couple of days.
  • When can I expect results?
    In general, most people can expect to see noticeable improvements in skin texture, reduced cellulite appearance, and a more contoured body within a few weeks to a couple of months after starting the treatment. The collagen production stimulated by VelaShape III can also continue to improve skin tone and tightness over time. To maintain the results achieved, it is important to follow a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, a balanced diet, and proper skincare. Additionally, periodic maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the results obtained from the initial treatment series.
  • What areas can be treated?
    VelaShape III can be used to treat various areas of the body where cellulite is a concern and where body contouring and skin tightening are desired. Some of the common treatment areas include: Thighs: Both the inner and outer thighs can be targeted to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the overall contour. Buttocks: VelaShape III can be used to address cellulite and enhance the shape and firmness of the buttocks. Abdomen: The treatment can help tighten and tone the abdominal area, reducing the appearance of cellulite and improving skin texture. Arms: VelaShape III can target sagging skin and cellulite on the upper arms, resulting in tighter and smoother skin. Love handles: The area around the waist, commonly known as love handles, can be treated to contour and slim the body's silhouette. Back: VelaShape III can be applied to the back area to address cellulite and improve skin texture. It's worth noting that VelaShape III applicators come in various sizes, allowing for customized treatment based on the specific areas of concern and body shape. This flexibility enables the treatment to be tailored to individual needs, ensuring effective treatment coverage for different body areas.

  • What is the downtime for electrolysis treatment?
    There is no downtime, except for small redness in the treatment area. Most people resume normal duties straight after treatment.
  • How does electrolysis hair removal work?
    On the day of the treatment, the area to be treated will be cleaned and prepped. We may apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort, although this is not always necessary. The doctor will insert a fine, sterile needle into each hair follicle individually. The electric current damages the hair follicle, inhibiting future hair growth.
  • Am I suitable for electrolysis?
    Electrolysis hair removal can be suitable for a wide range of individuals, regardless of gender or skin type. It is effective for removing hair of all colors, including light, blonde, red, gray, or white hair. Electrolysis can be performed on various skin types, including fair, medium, and dark skin. However, people with darker skin tones may be more prone to pigmentation changes or temporary skin discoloration. It's important to consult with one of our doctors who can assess your skin type and provide personalized recommendations.
  • What is the aftercare for electrolysis and is it painful?
    It is normal to feel a slight heat or tingling sensation. Some parts of the body are more sensitive than others but adjustments can be made by the therapist to provide a comfortable treatment. Numbing cream may be applied prior to your treatment. Immediately following a treatment there is normally a slight redness and swelling. This will only last a short time.
  • What is electrolysis hair removal?
    Electrolysis hair removal is a method of removing unwanted hair permanently. It involves the use of an electric current to destroy the hair follicles, preventing future hair growth in the treated areas. The amount of electrical current used is infinitesimally small and poses no hazard.

    It is difficult to be specific as to the number of treatments required, as we all have hair growth that is unique to us. Contributing factors are type and extent of hair growth, hormonal balance, skin type and frequency of treatments.
  • How many treatments do you recommend?
    In some cases, a single medical-grade peel may be sufficient to achieve the desired results. For example, if you're targeting mild hyperpigmentation or seeking a mild skin refresh, a single treatment may be effective. However, for more significant skin concerns like deep wrinkles, acne scars, or severe hyperpigmentation, multiple treatments are often recommended to achieve optimal results. It's common for individuals to undergo a series of peels spaced several weeks apart to allow the skin to heal between treatments. The exact number of treatments needed will be determined during a consultation with our doctors, as they will assess your skin condition and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
  • What is a medical grade peel?
    A medical-grade peel is a chemical peel procedure using potent chemical solutions to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. These peels typically use high concentrations of acids, allowing for more significant and targeted skin resurfacing. Medical-grade peels are designed to address specific skin concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. They can also improve skin texture, promote collagen production, and enhance overall skin quality.
  • Pricing and packages
    Medical grade peels treatments: $70 to $180 Synergie Skin peels: from $109 Aspect Dr peels: $120 to $180
  • Downtime
    The full recovery time for a medical peel can range from a week to several weeks. During this period, you may experience temporary changes in skin texture, such as dryness, tightness, or sensitivity. It's crucial to follow the post-peel care instructions provided by our doctors, which may include gentle cleansing, moisturizing, and avoiding excessive sun exposure.
  • Which peel is suitable for me?
    Enzyme HydroPeel This peel is effective for premature ageing, solar damage, dehydration, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, skin congestions. Salicyclic Acid Peel Especially designed for problematic acne, congestion, inflammatory skin, concerns as rosacea. Lactic Acid Peel Suitable for sensitive or dry skin types, lactic acid gently exfoliates and hydrates the skin, promoting a more radiant complexion. Layered Peel It involves applying multiple layers of lactic and salicyclic acid peels during a single treatment session to achieve more significant and targeted skin resurfacing. Tetra Acid 50 The peel provides a comprehensive exfoliation and address various skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and uneven skin texture. Modified Jessner Peel This peel is indicated for combination skin types. It helps to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, unclog pores, and improve acne, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin texture.
  • How does it work?
    During a medical-grade peel, the chosen solution is applied to the skin and left on for a specific period. This allows the acid to penetrate the skin layers, causing controlled damage and stimulating the body's natural healing response. After the peel, the damaged outer layer of skin peels off, revealing newer, healthier skin underneath.
  • What areas can be treated?
    Face Neck Chest and decolletage Back Hands
  • How does it work?
    ClearSkin Acne uses laser therapy to create heat in the skin without injuring the surface. It penetrates the skin deeply, causing thermal damage to the sebaceous glands of the skin, destroying P. acnes bacteria and reducing sebum production, whilst leaving the epidermis intact. The integrated vacuum simultaneously extracts the accumulated sebaceous material from the pores and has an integrated cooling system, so that the skin is protected and discomfort is minimal. The appearance of acne scars is also diminished over time by laser stimulation of collagen production.
  • When can I see the results?
    In most cases, results are progressive and depend on the severity of the condition; it is very rare to see acne improve immediately. Additionally, lifestyle, dietary and skincare changes will be advised in detail, for you to implement concurrently with this treatment, so that the health and immunity of your skin is restored, bringing the population of P. acnes under control naturally and reducing dependence on external treatments.

  • How many treatments will I need?
    Typically, four to six treatments are necessary, but again, this depends on the severity of the condition and the willingness to undertake the dietary and lifestyle changes necessary for the body to naturally manage a potential over-proliferation of the P. acnes bacteria. Ongoing treatments may be necessary to keep acne under control, especially when it is active in the teenage years.

  • How does Elos eMatrix Sublative RF laser treatment work?
    This technology combines bipolar radiofrequency energy with fractional delivery in a grid-like pattern. This creates microthermal zones, leaving some sections untreated. This allows for faster healing and recovery compared to traditional ablative laser treatments. The treatment is delivered through a handheld device held over the targeted treatment area. The RF energy penetrates the deeper layers of the skin.
  • What is the downtime and pre and post-treatment care for Elos eMatrix Sublative RF laser treatment?
    The treatment downtime varies from person to person, depending on the intensity of the treatment. Most people experience mild redness and swelling in the treated area, which can last for a few hours to a few days. Others may get mild crusting. Sometimes there is a grid-like pattern on the skin from the fractional delivery of the RF, but this usually fades. It’s important to adhere to the post-treatment aftercare regime prescribed by your Dermagen specialist and maintain a proper skincare routine that supports the healing process. Most clients resume normal activities immediately after the treatment, but for the first few days after treatment, it’s recommended to: Avoid sun exposure Avoid heat, saunas, hot rooms Avoid using harsh skincare, such as those that contain active ingredients.
  • How many Elos eMatrix Sublative RF laser treatment sessions are recommended?

  • What is Dermapen skin needling?
    Dermapen skin needling, also known as microneedling, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that offers several aesthetic benefits for the skin, including: Improved skin texture: as the skin repairs itself after microneedling, it produces more collagen and elastin which delivers a smoother texture to the top skin layers. It can treat dull skin and hyperpigmentation, along with large pores and dimpling. Reduces scars: it can treat acne scars, surgical scars and stretch marks by promoting collagen growth. Natural results: unlike fillers and other treatments, the results are gradual and look natural, avoiding the “overdone” look of other aesthetic treatments.
  • How many Dermapen skin needling treatments are recommended?
    Dermagen Clinic recommends 2 treatments performed 4 weeks apart.
  • Pricing and packages
    Gentle impact: 1 treatment $250 3 treatments $590 Dermapen 4: 1 treatment $290 3 treatments $790

    The treatment is minimally invasive, though you may experience redness and mild swelling straight after treatment.
  • When will I see results from Dermapen skin needling?
    The treatment usually remodels the skin after the second treatment, resulting in tighter, firmer and smoother looking skin, often with a dewy radiance to it.
  • How does Dermapen skin needling work?
    By creating tiny micro-injuries through the Dermapen, the skin’s natural response is to produce more collagen and elastin fibres. This can help plump and tighten the skin to make wrinkles, sun damage and scars less noticeable. The Dermapen device has microneedles that press against the targeted area, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. The depth of the microneedles can be adjusted according to the treatment results required.
  • Which areas can be treated with Dermapen skin needling?
    The face, neck, decolletage and hands - as well as areas on the body with scars - can be treated with Dermapen skin needling.
  • How many Dermapen skin needling treatments are recommended to see results?
    This depends on the results required and skin concerns being addressed. A series of treatments is usually required. For general skin rejuvenation, 3-4 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart is recommended, with collagen remodelling happening between the sessions. Deep wrinkles or acne scar treatments can require 6-8 sessions about 4-6 weeks apart
  • What is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment for vitiligo?
    The skin pigmentation from vitiligo can be treated with PRP. The growth factors from PRP can stimulate the melanocyte regeneration and repigmentation of the depigmented patches of skin.
  • What does PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment involve?
    The treatment involves several steps, including: Blood collection: Around 30-60mls of the client’s blood is drawn using a syringe. Centrifugation: The blood goes into a machine to separate the blood components into layers, separating white and red blood cells from the plasma. PRP extraction: the platelet-rich plasma is concentrated in the middle layer and carefully extracted. Sometimes this PRP can be activated with a substance such as calcium chloride or thrombin to trigger more growth factors. Application: PRP is then applied through either injections or topicals to stimulate tissue regeneration, healing and collagen production.
  • What is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment?
    This unique treatment was first developed in orthopaedics and dentistry to help heal soft tissue injuries, bone fractures and surgery. It uses the client’s own blood to promote healing and tissue regeneration. It delivers natural-looking results using the client’s own blood plasma and platelets to stimulate rejuvenation, healing and tissue growth. Creating PRP from the client’s own blood means the growth factors from their body can help rejuvenate and repair skin and ligaments or tendons. These growth factors improve skin texture and enhance overall skin tone and elasticity. It can be used to stimulate hair growth in cases of hair loss or thinning. It can also be used on the face, neck, decolletage and hands. It improves scars and helps stimulate tissue remodelling.

  • What is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment for hair loss?
    PRP can be used to treat hair thinning and certain types of alopecia. It is a non-surgical and minimally invasive option. PRP treatment for hair loss typically involves injecting PRP directly into the scalp. This is believed to stimulate the hair follicles and promote growth. The specific protocol usually involves a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart, with maintenance treatments recommended to sustain results.
  • What is the downtime and pre and post-treatment care for PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment?
    Clients may experience redness, swelling or bruising at the treatment site. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight, excessive heat and some skincare products for a few days post-treatment.
  • What is the downtime and pre-treatment care for bioremodelling?
    There is no downtime. For the 24 hours prior to treatment, you should avoid alcohol, aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication. After treatment, you should avoid wearing makeup and give sports, swimming or other strenuous physical activity a miss for 24 hours. We also recommend avoiding saunas and steam rooms for a few days after treatment.
  • How many bioremodelling treatments are recommended?
    Dermagen Clinic recommends 2 treatments performed 4 weeks apart.
  • When will I see results from bioremodelling?
    The treatment usually remodels the skin after the second treatment, resulting in tighter, firmer and smoother looking skin, often with a dewy radiance to it.
  • What is bioremodelling?
    Bioremodelling treatments rejuvenate the skin and improve its overall appearance by stimulating collagen production. Collagen is the protein that plays a crucial role in maintaining skin's elasticity, firmness, and youthful look. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Bioremodelling treatments help address these concerns and are customised to address specific areas of the face or body to tailor the right approach to each patient’s specific needs.
  • What areas can be treated?
    Bioremodelling is most commonly used on the face and neck, but can also be used for the decolletage (top of chest, just beneath the neck), hands, arms, knees and abdomen area.
  • Pricing and packages
    Bio-remodelling 2 treatments, including Profhilo products: $1490
  • Who is suitable for bioremodelling treatments?
    Men and women can benefit from bioremodelling to improve overall skin texture and quality. It can benefit patients of all ages with its deep skin moisturising.
  • Which areas of the face and body can be used with bioremodelling?
    Bioremodelling is most commonly used on the face and neck, but can also be used for the decolletage (top of chest, just beneath the neck), hands, arms, knees and abdomen area.
  • How does bioremodelling work?
    Bioremodelling treatments use substances that stimulate the body’s natural collagen response - these injectable treatment solutions are said to ‘bioremodel’ ageing or sagging skin, hence their name. There are a range of different brands of bioremodellers, but they contain thermally cross-linked hyaluronic acid. They are sometimes called ‘dermal tissue reconstructive materials' and provide extreme skin hydration to treat skin laxity, overall skin quality and stimulate your natural collagen and elastin production.
  • How do face contouring treatments work?
    Face contouring treatments are usually a soft injectable gel that is placed under the skin to restore volume, smooth lines and enhance contours and features. The effects are long lasting, but not permanent, as the product will naturally biodegrade over time after injection.
  • Pricing and packages

  • Can face contouring treatments be combined with other treatments?
    Yes, face contouring treatments can often be combined with other treatments to enhance their overall results. Combining different cosmetic procedures can help address multiple concerns and provide a more comprehensive rejuvenation approach. Some common treatments that can be combined with dermal fillers include: Wrinkles reduction treatments: they work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and lines. Combining it with face contouring treatments can provide a comprehensive solution for both dynamic and static wrinkles, allowing for a smoother and more youthful appearance. Chemical peels: Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates and removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells. Combining face contouring treatments with chemical peels can improve skin texture, tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser resurfacing: Laser resurfacing treatments use focused laser energy to remove damaged skin layers, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin texture and tone. When combined with face contouring treatments, laser resurfacing can enhance the overall results by addressing both volume loss and skin quality. Skin needling: Skin needling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture. When combined with face contouring treatments, it can enhance the absorption of products and promote better overall results.
  • What results can I expect?
    Face contouring treatments work instantly but some patients experience swelling and temporary redness at the injection site for 48-72 hours after treatment. Using ice packs after treatment can help reduce swelling. Please read the downtime and post-treatment care options.
  • How long will the effects last?
    The duration of the effects depends on the type of product used. Some products typically last for up to 18 months, while others may have longer-lasting effects. Over time, the body gradually breaks down and absorbs the product, so touch-up treatments are usually required to maintain the results.
  • What is the downtime and post-treatment care?
    The downtime associated with face contouring treatments is typically minimal. However, it's important to note that individual experiences may vary, and some people may experience more downtime than others. Here are some factors to consider regarding dermal filler downtime: Immediate effects: Some mild swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site is common. These effects are generally temporary and usually resolve within a few days. Using cold compresses or ice packs on the treated areas can help minimise swelling and discomfort. Resuming normal activities: Many individuals are able to resume their daily activities immediately after receiving the treatment. However, it's advisable to avoid intense physical activities, vigorous exercise, or exposure to excessive heat or sun for at least 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. This can help minimise the risk of additional swelling or complications. Makeup and skincare products: We will provide specific instructions regarding the use of makeup and skincare products after the treatment. In some cases, it may be recommended to avoid applying makeup directly on the treated areas for a certain period of time. Additionally, certain skincare products containing harsh ingredients or exfoliants should be avoided to prevent irritation. We always recommend people use sunscreen.
  • What does face contouring treatments involve?
    Consultation: Before undergoing any treatment, you will consult with one of our qualified medical professionals who will discuss your desired outcomes and determine the most appropriate product for you. Everyone’s face is different and requires a treatment tailored to them. Face contouring treatments should not be used on people with some skin issues or who have suppressed immunity. All consultation fees are fully refundable against treatments. Most products are prescription only. Preparation: The treatment area is cleaned, and a topical anaesthetic may be applied to minimise discomfort. In some cases, the product itself may contain a local anesthetic. Most clients experience a sting, pinch or pressure sensation during treatment. Injection: The chosen product is injected into the targeted areas with a fine needle or cannula. The process is usually quick, and multiple injections may be performed to achieve the desired results.
  • What does the treatment involve?
    The agent being used for the treatment will block nerve signals, causing muscle paralysis or weakness. This relaxation smooths the overlying skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure is minimally invasive and usually does not require anaesthesia. It involves several small injections into the targeted muscles, and treatments often take less than 30 minutes.
  • When will I see the results?
    The treatment usually takes a few days to take effect, with full results visible within a week or two. The treated area usually appears smoother. Results do vary from person to person.
  • What are wrinkles reduction treatments?
    Wrinkles reduction treatments are performed using a purified form of prescription-only medications, which temporarily paralyses or relaxes the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles. When performed into specific facial muscles, the treatment stops these muscles contracting. The procedure is performed by our doctors.
  • Pricing and packages
    Wrinkles reduction treatment: from $15 Hyperidrosis/excessive sweating: consultation required.
  • How long do wrinkles reduction treatments last?
    The results typically last for 3 to 4 months, and follow-up treatments are required to maintain it.
  • Can wrinkles reduction treatments be combined with other treatments?
    Yes, wrinkles reduction treatments can be combined with other treatments to enhance the overall results. Here are some common combinations of wrinkles relaxers treatments with other cosmetic treatments: Face contouring treatments: Natural intradermal gel is used to restore volume, fill in deep wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. Face contouring treatment and wrinkles reduction treatment complement each other to address different types of wrinkles and achieve more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. For example, wrinkle relaxers can be used to target dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movements, while natural intradermal gel can help fill in static wrinkles that are present even when the face is at rest. Chemical peels: Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin to remove damaged outer layers and promote skin rejuvenation. Combining wrinkles reduction treatments with chemical peels can provide a dual approach to addressing both dynamic wrinkles and skin texture concerns, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Laser treatments: Laser treatments, such as fractional laser resurfacing or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, and skin tone or texture irregularities. When used in conjunction with wrinkle relaxers, laser treatments can enhance the overall rejuvenation. Skin tightening treatments: Procedures like radiofrequency (RF) or ultrasound-based skin tightening can help improve skin laxity and tighten loose skin. Combining these treatments with wrinkle relaxers can provide a comprehensive approach to addressing both dynamic wrinkles and sagging skin. Skincare and maintenance treatments: Wrinkle relaxers can be part of a broader skincare regimen that includes topical treatments, such as retinoids, antioxidants, or specialised creams. These treatments can help improve skin texture, tone, and overall quality, complementing the effects of wrinkle relaxers and maintaining the results over time.
  • What is the downtime and pre and post-treatment care?
    Wrinkles reduction treatments typically involve minimal downtime. Here's what most people can expect in terms of downtime: Immediate post-treatment: You may experience mild redness, swelling, or pinpoint bleeding at the treatment sites. These side effects are usually minimal and temporary, subsiding within a short period. Return to normal activities: In most cases, you can resume your normal daily activities immediately after receiving the treatment. There is typically no need for downtime or recovery time. You can go back to work, social engagements, and other routine activities right away. Avoiding certain activities: While there is no extensive downtime, healthcare professionals often recommend avoiding certain activities for the first 24 to 48 hours following treatment. These may include: Strenuous exercise: It is advisable to avoid intense physical activity or exercise for at least 24 hours after the treatment. This can help prevent excessive sweating and ensure the substance remains in the intended areas. Massages or rubbing the treated area: It is important to avoid rubbing, massaging, or applying pressure to the treated areas immediately after the procedure. This can help prevent the spread of the product to unintended areas. Excessive heat exposure: Avoid saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, or prolonged sun exposure for the first day or two after the treatment. These activities can increase the risk of swelling or bruising.
  • What is the downtime and pre and post-treatment care for Elos Refirme treatment?
    The treatment usually has minimal downtime and clients resume normal activities straight after a treatment. Some key points about Elos Refirme include: Non-invasive procedure: there are no incisions or significant tissue disruption. Mild discomfort: Clients report feeling a warm sensation or a gentle snapping feeling. This is usually temporary and subsides shortly after the procedure. Temporary redness: It’s common for the treated area to be red or pink and usually resolves within a few hours to a few days. Some people experience bruising, swelling or changes in colour: these are rare and usually temporary.

    Elos Refirme treatments: 1 treatment from $490 3 treatments $1290
  • How does Elos Refirme treatment work?
    The treatment is delivered through a handheld device delivered to the targeted treatment area, delivering RF energy and infrared light to stimulate the collagen deep beneath the skin. This stimulates fibroblasts, which are the cells that help build and produce new collagen.
  • What is Elos Refirme treatment?
    This energy-based treatment combines radiofrequency and light energy to address skin concerns, especially those that benefit from more collagen production deep beneath the skin’s surface. It is a treatment that helps plump the skin and improve overall skin texture without the need for invasive procedures.
  • What is the difference between Elos Refirme and Elos eMatrix Sublative RF laser treatment?
    Both treatments use energy, but each one uses different types of energy delivered via a different hand device. Refirme combines radiofrequency and infrared light to tighten and firm the skin. eMatrix Sublative RF uses fractional radiofrequency technology to improve texture and address imperfections. A consultation with Dermagen Clinic specialists will help determine which treatment is most suitable for you.
  • What results will Elos Refirme treatment deliver?
    The treatment results vary from person to person, but generally the results include: Skin tightening: As the collagen deep beneath the top layer of skin is stimulated by the laser, the treated area should appear tighter and more firm. Reduced wrinkles and fine lines: Over time, the skin appears smoother and less wrinkled. Improved skin texture: A more refined complexion tends to appear after treatment, reducing uneven skin tones and roughness. Enhanced skin elasticity: The collagen synthesis and remodelling from Elos Refirme improves skin elasticity to deliver a more supple skin texture.
  • What results can I expect from plasma fibroblast treatment?
    This non-surgical treatment suits people looking for rejuvenation without the invasiveness of facelifts or tummy tucks. Individual results vary and results will be discussed at your initial consultation. Clients usually see the following results: Immediately after the treatment: Some clients get immediate skin tightening due to the thermal effect of the plasma fibroblast. There may also be redness, swelling, small scabs or crusts at the treatment site, which are normal. First week after treatment: Initial redness and swelling should subside and the scabs should heal, revealing new skin underneath. During this time, you may notice gradual improvements in skin texture and tone. Two to 4 weeks after treatment: The skin continues to heal and collagen and elastin production is stimulated. As the treated area begins to remodel, you may observe more tightening and firming. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles may continue to diminish. Beyond week 4: The results become more noticeable over time. The full effects of the treatment are usually seen within a few months of the first treatment.
  • What is the downtime and pre and post-treatment care for plasma fibroblast treatments?
    The scabs and redness after treatment means you may want to plan for social downtime. Immediately after treatment, you may experience redness, swelling and a sensation similar to sunburn, with the appearance of fine dots and crusts in the treatment area. The dots, crusts and scabs start to form within the first day or two after treatment and can last for 5-10 days. It’s important not to pick or scratch at the scabs as this can increase the risk of infection or scarring. It can take 1-2 weeks after treatment to recover, but the full remodelling process can take several weeks or months to appear.
  • How many plasma fibroblast treatments do I need?
    A course of 3-4 treatments spaced several weeks apart is usually recommended, but it will vary from client to client. Each treatment will build on the previous treatment, allowing for progressive improvement.

It can also improve the appearance of bags and wrinkles under the eye. It can also work to reduce crow’s feet and the appearance of fine lines around the outer corners of the eye. Forehead and frown lines: the horizontal brow wrinkles and vertical ‘11’ lines between the eyebrows can be targeted with plasma fibroblast. Nasolabial folds: also known as smile lines or laugh lines, these creases may be softened by plasma fibroblast. Jowls and jawline: plasma fibroblast can tighten and lift sagging skin along the jawline to redefine the jaw and reduce the appearance of jowls. Neck and decolletage: tightening sagging and sun damaged skin can improve the appearance of the neck and chest area. Stretch marks: the treatment can be applied to areas with stretch marks, such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. By stimulating collagen production, it can improve the texture and colour of stretch-marked skin. Scar revision: plasma fibroblast can help improve the appearance of scars, including acne scars and surgical scars, by encouraging the regeneration of healthy skin tissue.
  • What does plasma fibroblast treatment involve?
    The treatment device creates a small plasma flash. A series of these micro injuries will be created across the treatment area to stimulate your body’s own production of collagen and elastin.
  • What is plasma fibroblast treatment?
    This treatment relies on a handheld device to deliver a controlled high frequency electric arc, creating micro injuries. The handheld device emits a gas-like substance to stimulate fibroblast cells in the deeper layers of the skin to repair the outer skin layers. It’s the body’s response to the micro injury that helps the fibroblasts activate and repair and regenerate the skin.
  • How does plasma fibroblast treatment work?
    The treatment procedure relies on the handheld device emitting the plasma flash to damage the top layer of skin and activate the fibroblasts beneath the surface. The procedure typically works as follows: Preparation: The skin is cleaned and a topical numbing cream applied. Device: The pen-like handheld device is prepared by creating specific settings for the type of treatment. Plasma arc creation: The device generates a plasma flash or focused electric arc which ionises the air between the device and the skin’s surface, resulting in the formation of a tiny plasma dot on the skin. Skin response: The plasma energy heats up the tissue, causing controlled thermal damage. This triggers the body’s natural healing response to stimulate the fibroblasts deep beneath the skin, which in turn stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Contraction and remodelling: As the skin heals, the treated area contracts and remodels. This tightening effect is attributed to the collagen fibres reorganising and becoming more compact, The number of plasma dots created and the intensity of treatment are adjusted based on each person’s needs. The treatment session duration varies depending on the size of the treatment area.
  • Downtime
    Aqua dermabrasion typically has minimal downtime compared to more invasive procedures like traditional dermabrasion. However, the exact amount of downtime can vary depending on the intensity of the treatment and individual skin sensitivity. Here are some considerations regarding downtime after aqua dermabrasion: Redness: It is common to experience temporary redness in the treated area immediately after aqua dermabrasion. The intensity and duration of redness can vary from person to person but generally subside within a few hours to a day. Sensitivity: Your skin may be more sensitive following the treatment. It's important to avoid exposing your skin to harsh products, extreme temperatures, and direct sunlight, as these can further irritate the skin. Protect your skin and give it time to recover. Dryness and Peeling: Some individuals may experience mild dryness or flaking of the skin as part of the exfoliation process. This is a normal occurrence and can be managed by following a gentle moisturizing routine. Avoid picking or exfoliating the skin forcefully, as it may lead to irritation or scarring. Makeup and Skincare Products: It is generally recommended to avoid using heavy makeup and certain skincare products immediately after aqua dermabrasion. Give your skin time to heal and breathe. If necessary, use minimal makeup or opt for products specifically designed for post-treatment use. Your skincare professional can provide specific recommendations. Return to Activities: Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after aqua dermabrasion. However, it's important to listen to your skin and avoid strenuous activities, excessive sweating, or exposure to factors that can potentially compromise the healing process.
  • What results can I expect?
    Aqua dermabrasion can yield several positive results for the skin. Here are some of the potential benefits and outcomes that can be achieved with this treatment: Exfoliation and Smoother Skin: Aqua dermabrasion effectively exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing a smoother, more refined complexion. This can help improve skin texture and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hydration and Radiance: The infusion of water during aqua dermabrasion provides hydration to the skin, leaving it plump, moisturized, and radiant. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin.

  • What area can be treated?
    The Soprano Titanium laser system features several handpiece options that allow for the effective treatment of various body areas, including hard-to-reach regions like the nose and ears. The Titanium ‘Trio’ handpiece has been proven to improve treatment efficiency by up to 40% by simultaneously delivering all three wavelengths during treatment.
  • How does the treatment work and does it hurt?
    The hair removal procedure itself is straightforward. You will lie on a treatment bed and make yourself comfortable. As a safety measure, you will be asked to wear some protective eyewear, which the therapist will also wear. A thin layer of clear gel is applied to the area so that the laser is able to slide over the area with no friction. Our therapist will then run the laser handpiece over the area in a sweeping motion, always keeping contact with the skin. The handpiece delivers small bursts of energy to gently heat the hair follicles to cause the targeted damage. You will feel the area warm slightly over the course of the treatment, but at the same time the patented DualChill treatment tip on the handpiece keeps your skin cool and comfortable. The Soprano Titanium Laser hair removal may become mildly uncomfortable in sensitive or intimate areas. Depending on which part of your body is being treated, the skin may go slightly red. Treatment times vary depending on the person and the area being treated. It can be as quick as ten minutes! The Soprano Titanium also has an incredible Quattro handpiece. This is the largest applicator head compared with other devices on the market, meaning the time it takes to treat a patient is reduced by up to 40%.
  • How does Soprano Titanium laser hair removal work?
    The Soprano Titanium device combines all three of these laser wavelengths into one single applicator, resulting in damage to the three different depths of the hair follicle simultaneously, and delaying regrowth without causing any injury to the surrounding tissue.

Being one of the most adaptable laser systems available, the Soprano Titanium treatments can be customised to precisely match the unique treatment needs of each patient.
  • How long between sessions?
    The gap between sessions is usually 4 – 6 weeks for facial areas and 6 – 8 weeks for areas on the body. The number of hair removal sessions depends on various factors, including where the hair is, how thick it is and skin type and hair colour. For the best results, we recommend that you complete the full course of treatment sessions.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    We usually recommend a course of 6 – 8 treatment sessions to permanently reduce hair growth. This is because some of the follicles in the treatment area won’t be in the targeted growth phase at any given time. We must space the treatments out to make sure that hair that may not have been as effectively treated in one session is affected in the next. Facial hair tends to be more stubborn and may need 10 – 12 treatment sessions. Maintenance may be required.
  • Downtime
    Lipolysis fat reduction injections typically have minimal downtime, meaning that you can resume your daily activities soon after the procedure. However, it's important to note that some people may experience temporary side effects that can affect their comfort and appearance in the immediate post-treatment period. Commonly, there may be some swelling, bruising, redness, or tenderness in the treated area. These effects are usually mild and temporary, resolving within a few days to a couple of weeks. You may choose to apply ice packs or take over-the-counter pain medications to alleviate any discomfort.
  • Where does the fat go?
    After the lipolysis fat reduction injections, the fat that is released from the broken down fat cells is processed and eliminated by the body through natural metabolic processes. The breakdown of fat cells triggered by lipolysis injections releases fatty acids and other byproducts into the surrounding tissue. These substances are then metabolized by the body's enzymes, primarily in the liver, and are either converted into energy or eliminated as waste.
  • What is Lipolysis fat reduction?
    Lipolysis fat reduction is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce localized fat deposits in specific areas of the body through injections. These injections contain a combination of substances, called phosphatidylcholine (PC), a soya derivative that treat specific deposits of fat.
  • What areas can be treated?
    Lipolysis injections are often used as a spot treatment for areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. They are not intended as a weight loss method for overall body fat reduction. Commonly treated areas include love handles, double chin, and cellulite.
  • What does the treatment involve?
    The procedure involves injecting the lipolytic solution directly into the targeted area, such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips. The injected solution works by breaking down the fat cells, causing them to be metabolized and eliminated from the body through natural processes. It is believed that the lipolytic agents work by disrupting the integrity of the fat cell membrane, leading to the release and breakdown of stored fat.
  • When can I expect results?
    The timing of results from lipolysis fat reduction injections can vary. While some people may see noticeable changes within a few weeks, others may require several weeks or even months to observe visible improvements. It's important to note that individual responses can differ based on various factors such as metabolism, the amount of fat being targeted, and lifestyle factors.

    For smaller skin lesions or isolated areas, a single session may be sufficient to remove or treat the target tissue effectively. In these cases, the procedure can often be completed in a relatively short period. For larger treatment areas or more extensive skin concerns, multiple sessions may be necessary. The sessions are typically spaced apart to allow for adequate healing and recovery between treatments. The exact number of sessions required will be determined by our doctors during your consultation.
  • Aftercare
    Aftercare following RF skin excision is crucial to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. Keep the area clean Apply prescribed ointments or dressings Protect the treated area Avoid picking or scratching Follow activity restrictions Monitor for signs of infection Follow-up appointments
  • Downtime
    The duration of downtime can vary from a few days to a couple of weeks. During this time, you may need to avoid activities that could disrupt the healing process, such as intense physical exercise, exposure to excessive heat or moisture, or applying makeup to the treated area.
  • How does it work?
    During an RF skin excision procedure, a specialized device is used to deliver radiofrequency energy to the targeted area of the skin. The energy heats the skin tissue, causing it to vaporize or coagulate. As a result, the unwanted or abnormal skin tissue is removed or destroyed.
  • What is RF skin excision?
    RF skin excision, also known as radiofrequency skin excision, is a medical procedure used to remove unwanted and raised skin lesions, such as moles and skin tags, using radiofrequency energy.
