As the injectables nurse at Skinovate’s Essendon clinic, I see a lot of patients wanting lip enhancements. Being very experienced in dermal fillers, and having used a wide range of fillers over my career, I feel I can offer my patients a very satisfying result. The procedure is performed using a strong local anaesthetic cream, with minimal discomfort and side effects. In their consult, patients are given a thorough explanation of the procedure, product, cost and expected outcome before they undergo any treatment. A post-treatment review is offered to all patients if required, and top ups of dermal filler can most certainly be done if warranted. Overall, I rarely see patients return who are unhappy with their dermal filler treatment.
Pigmentation cases can be so interesting and incredibly satisfying to treat. Different types of pigmentation are treated with different
treatments, with IPL Photo Rejuvenation being one of the most common. Most people present with various pigmentation issues and so
the treatment approach is a step by step process targeting pigment at
differing levels in the skin.
A lady I saw today came in with some darker patches under her eyes, which we refer to as Post Inflammatory pigment which was the result from the wrong treatment approach at another clinic! She presents with some general sun damage, freckles, capillaries and general widespread pigmentation.
Step 1 in this case is a Jessner peel, to gently peel and lighten the surface pigment so that we can then address the deeper pigmentation more safely. Step 2 is a prescription compounded fading cream, again to lighten the existing pigment but more importantly, to suppress pigment production. Step 3, which actually happens a few months from now after summer, is IPL Photo Rejuvenation (Intense Pulse light) to clear any freckles and to shut down visible capillaries in the skin, often found lurking under the initial darker pigment making it appear darker. This approach works for this person, some people we address differently. Everyone is treated on a case by case basis to ensure we get the right outcome for YOU!
