Our Spring Guide to Summer Skin Ready

With the warm weather starting to peek it’s way through the winter chill, many women are turning their thoughts to preparing your body for Summer clothing and socialising.

There are ways in which we can help ensure your skin is ready for a smooth transition to shorts and skirts, t-shirts and tank tops and great looking skin for the Summer season.

But many of these options require several treatments, so it’s time to start thinking about them now.

Laser Hair Removal

When conducted by a trained, medical practitioner, laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to treat unwanted hair from legs, arms, under arms, bikini lines and faces, as well as mens chests, backs and butts!

Multiple treatments are required, between 4-6 weeks apart, with notable reduction in hair growth possible after just two or three treatments (though it can take more).

Also, if you’ve had treatments in the past, over time hair may begin to re-grow, so “top up” treatments can be useful.

Book a hair removal treatment today and you’ll be enjoying a much less demanding hair removal regime (who has time to shave their legs every two days??) and less hair to deal with by Christmas!

Tattoo Removal

While tattoo removal can take far more time than we have before Summer to truly get the results you want, the sooner you start, the sooner your tattoo will fade.

The number of treatments required to remove your tattoo is impossible to predict exactly, but even a ball park estimate should not be attempted without the clinician looking at the tattoo in person. Many factors contribute to the unique requirements for removing a tattoo.

If you’re interested in knowing more about the course of treatment we recommend for removal of your tattoo, we offer a free consult.

Further, the benefit of choosing a medical clinic for tattoo removal is that we can review your underlying skin for any conditions that may adversely affect treatment outcomes, or which may be adversely affected by treatment.

Quick and Low-invasive Skin Rejuvenation

Often Winter leads us to get a bit lax with our skin care, so Spring is the perfect time for a quick pick-me-up to give us a Summery glow and revive tired or listless skin.

We offer several options here.

Chemical Peels are quick, instant options for a skin boost that can add a lustre or texture improvement without any down time or impact on your schedule.

While the results are temporary, they can help reinvigorate your skin care energy and help you feel better about how you look as you head into the social season.

Kleresca facial rejuvenation is a light-based therapy that can rejuvenate the skin through a series of short sessions under the Kleresca machine.

These are the new kids on the facial rejuvenation block, and offer an alternative to the abrasive nature of some chemical peels or the more significant rejuvenation of lasers.

Treatments will take you only 15-20 minutes and a series of them, spaced about 4 weeks apart, is usually required for noticeable improvement.

Results are much longer lasting than chemical peels and are more significant.

Walter-Nolan Multi Laser Procedure

If you’re feeling like your skin needs a little more power to revive the tired Winter wear and the force of ageing, then our signature procedure, the Walter-Nolan Multi Laser Procedure is our recommendation.

This procedure, developed by our founder, Jim Walter, and our cosmetic physician, Dr Marianne Nolan, is tailored to suit your skin’s specific needs, and will involve two, three or four different lasers. This means you’ll have a targeted treatment that will achieve the specific results you’re looking for.

Depending on the number of lasers and the issues being treated, your unique Walter-Nolan treatment may require several treatments, and because we’re using lasers, occasionally treatments may require down time to allow skin to heal, though this is not usually a long period (think rest-of-the-day or 24 hours).

If you’re interested in knowing what a Walter-Nolan treatment for your skin would require, schedule an appointment today.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Nothing revives a tired, aged or “unhappy” face like injectables.

Whether it’s removing frown lines, crows feet or “bunny nose” wrinkles, or you’re plumping lips that have thinned with age, injectables can give your face a renewed youthfulness like no other treatment.

Our clinic offers injectables administered by specialist nurses and doctors, so you know you’re getting the best possible, medical-grade treatment.

If you’d like to discuss how injectable treatment may help your concerns about the appearance of your face, make an appointment today and we’ll give you all the information you need to make your decision.

And if you decide the treatment is right for you, we can deliver it then and there.
