Treatment Information

Your Skin Journey

STEP ONE - Skin Health Advisory Session

Each skin journey begins with a Skin Health Advisory Session. During this step, you will have conversation with Laura about your skin and use the Observ 520x skin diagnostic device to map out your areas of concern with pin point accuracy. A personalised treatment journey and step-by-step skincare routine will then be tailored to successfully address your skin condition and to achieve more advanced, long-term results.

STEP TWO - Skin Preparation Treatments

An essential stage of your skin journey, this stage focuses on creating healthy functioning skin in preparation for corrective treatments.

STEP THREE - Corrective Skin Treatments

Once the skin has been adequately prepped, corrective skin treatments may begin. This stage is all about addressing your specific skin concerns and achieving your desired treatment outcome.

STEP FOUR - Maintenance Treatments

After we have achieved your desired results, we then move onto the maintenance stage which will involve a treatment every 4-6 weeks to ensure your skin is kept healthy and functioning at its best.

** It is important to understand that no two skins are alike so the timeframe for each stage may not be exactly the same for each person ** 

Wrinkle Relaxants

Types of wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles: visible skin creasing when muscles move to form facial expressions.

Static wrinkles: visible lines when face is at rest.

What can be treated?

Wrinkle relaxants are effective where there are dynamic lines or areas of overactive muscle. Although wrinkle relaxants are most commonly known for aesthetic purposes, they also serve an important role in treating a number of medical conditions too.

Areas that can be treated include, but are not limited to:

  • Frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet
  • Smokers lines
  • Crooked or gummy smiles
  • Inverted or hidden lips
  • Bulky chin & chin dimpling
  • Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating
  • Facial slimming and teeth grinding

How does it work?

Wrinkle relaxant is made from a natural purified protein, which is delivered into the muscles by very small injections. These injections relax muscle contractions to prevent skin creasing and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restoring a more youthful appearance.

How long do results last?

Depending on the treated area, wrinkle relaxants generally last up to 3-4 months. Your wrinkles will gradually reappear as the muscles return back to their normal pre-injection state, however most people find these lines appear much softer than they once were.

How do I maintain my results?

Repeated treatment every 3-4 months is recommended to maintain muscle relaxation and to prevent the formation of new wrinkles, which is why anti-wrinkle injections are the ideal ‘preventative’ treatment. With regular treatments, the effect is often longer-lasting as the muscles weaken over time, meaning smaller dosages are required with longer intervals between treatments.

Follow-up appointments

  • A 2 week follow up appointment is required to review the treated area and to ensure optimal results were achieved.
  • A 4 month follow up appointment is then suggested for your maintenance treatment and to revise your treatment plan.

Side effects

With any medical procedure there are always risks involved. Your practitioner will discuss all risks and contraindications with you prior to performing any procedure.

Some possible after effects include:

  • Bruising, swelling and/or redness at injection sites.
  • Headaches, nausea or flu like symptoms.
  • Possible pain, burning, stinging or a pins and needles sensation.
  • Skin tightness or local muscle weakness

If you are experiencing any side effects other than the ones mentioned, please contact your treating practitioner.

Post treatment aftercare

  • Do not rub, massage or apply pressure to the treated area.
  • Do not exercise or apply direct heat to the area for a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Do not lay flat for a minimum of 6 hours.
  • Do not wear makeup for a minimum of 12 hours.

Dermal Fillers

What can be treated?

Dermal Filler is used to restore volume and fullness to an area of the face where volume loss may be visible. It may also be used to shape facial contours or to mimic bone structure adding definition or projection to specific facial features in younger and mature clients.

Areas that can be treated include, but are not limited to:

  • Lip augmentation for volume, structure and definition.
  • Jawline contouring or chin enhancement for projection, lengthening and definition.
  • Cheekbones for restoration of lost volume and contouring.
  • Reduction of deepened lines around the mouth, nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
  • Tear troughs for peri-orbital rejuvenation.

How does it work?

Made of a naturally occurring substance in the human body, dermal fillers are used to add or restore volume to a treated area. Dermal Filler is an excellent non-surgical treatment option that may be used to tweak or enhance particular facial features in a subtle, yet powerful way that still allows you to look like you.

How long do results last?

Whilst results are immediate, they are not permanent. Results may last between 6-18 months+ depending on your metabolic rate, the type of product used and where it is administered.

Follow up appointments

  • A 2 week follow up appointment is required to review the treated area and to ensure optimal results were     achieved.
  • A 6 month follow up appointment is then suggested for your maintenance treatment if required and to revise your treatment plan.

Side Effects

With any medical procedure there are always risks involved. Your practitioner will discuss all risks and contraindications with you prior to performing any procedure.

What to expect:

  • Possible bruising, swelling and/or redness at injection sites.
  • Possible pain, tenderness or itching.

    Note: serious side effects are rare and should be treated in a timely manner. If you experience any side effects other than the ones listed above, please contact your treating practitioner.

Post treatment aftercare

  • Do not rub, massage or apply excessive pressure to treated areas.
  • Do not apply direct heat or expose the treated area to UV light for a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Do not exercise for 24 hours.
  • Do not lay flat for a minimum of 6 hours.
  • Do not wear makeup for a minimum of 12 hours to avoid infection of sites.
  • Any undesired effects such as persistent redness, increased pain or swelling should be reported immediately.
