Resolve vs Fraxel: An Honest Comparison of Laser Facial Rejuvenation

Posted by Andrew on 12-Dec-2017 15:35:35

Fraxel is a brand of fractional laser rejuvenation. Fractional laser concept relies on creating hundreds of thousands of tiny pinpoint columns of damage in the skin. Fractional means the columns of lasers are divided in grids and leaves untouched tissue between the damage. This has the advantage of speeding up healing and stimulates the production of collagen. Fraxel has launched a number of versions since the Fraxel Re:store was first released.

Detail Smoother Skin Clinic invested in the Syneron Candela ResolveTM holographic fractional laser. We believe this breakthrough technology has all the benefits of Fraxel without the negatives.

What’s The Best Laser For Permanent Hair Removal?

Posted by Andrew on 12-Oct-2017 19:33:14

When products, services and treatments become more mainstream, consumers tend to become more relaxed about the businesses they trust and laser hair removal is no exception as its growth in popularity has surged. Popularity usually goes hand in hand with competitiveness, meaning lower prices and hence cost cutting. Many clinics cut costs by using inferior equipment and lasers purchased overseas, meaning you may be putting yourself under a high-powered device that has not been through the stringent testing and clinical studies that you would expect. 

At the end of the day, a laser is still a laser and has the ability to inflict permanent damage when used incorrectly or by an inexperienced clinic. In this article, we explain why we believe the GentleMax Pro is the best hair removal laser in the world.

How To Treat Spider Veins Post Pregnancy

Posted by Andrew on 31-May-2017 11:04:44

During pregnancy, not only are your hormones raging, you also have an increased volume of blood plus the additional weight that pregnancy brings that all lead to increased pressure on your veins. This increased pressure can force them to the surface of the skin to become very visible.

Spider veins (or telangiectasia) commonly form during pregnancy due to hormone changes and the added stress on your veins. Spider veins are a form of vascular lesion which are malformations of veins, capillaries, lymphatic vessels and arteries. They appear as red, purple or bluish lines or clusters of lines on the legs, nose, face and neck and they can make you feel self-conscious.

The Science Behind Body Contouring with Skin Tightening

Posted by Andrew on 24-May-2017 11:13:01

Have you ever pondered the body’s incredible potential to heal itself? Our bodies are continually repairing and restoring and modern aesthetic science has harnessed this by developing devices that trigger your body to regenerate in the targeted treatment areas.   

Ageing and weight loss are two key contributors to loose or sagging skin. As we age, our skin loses elasticity as the collagen and elastin becomes weaker and production of new cells slows. Following weight loss, the skin may not entirely shrink back if it has been over-stretched or stretched for a long period of time.

Syneron-Candela has created innovative technology, the VelaShape III, that stimulates your body to produce new collagen and elastin to smooth and tighten skin with the added benefit of body contouring.

Why Sublative Repairs Acne Scars Better Than Ablative Lasers

Posted by Andrew on 12-Jan-2017 06:29:50

CO2 ablative laser resurfacing hit the media years ago for its frequent side effect of hypopigmentation. Side effects were common due to the lasers being slower and hotter than they are today. The technology has improved over the years, however the results from laser resurfacing come at a cost. In addition to hypopigmentation, you can expect pain, significant downtime with redness and swelling lasting from weeks to months along with a high risk of infection and scarring. The traditional (and outdated) view was that the more aggressive the resurfacing, the better the results, however revolutionary radio frequency technology is turning this assumption on its head.

SublativeTM treatment for acne scars uses radio frequency rather than laser and penetrates deep into the dermis whilst leaving the epidermis largely unharmed. This means minimal downtime with maximum effect on the scarred tissue.

Safe Pigmentation Removal For Dark Skin Types

Posted by Andrew on 22-Nov-2016 13:35:41

Visible signs of ageing doesn’t just refer to fine lines and wrinkles. The more telling signs of ageing are age spots. Also called solar lentigines and liver spots, age spots are flat tan, brown or black spots. They usually appear on the face, shoulders, arms and hands — areas most exposed to the sun. They vary in size and are very common in adults older than age 50. With Australia’s harsh climate, we see age spots in clients much younger than this, with people seeking treatment as early as their thirties.

For people with dark skin types, treatment options are limited due to the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation on darker skin. PicoWay is the leading technology for safe and effective pigmentation removal for all skin types and is the only choice for skin type III and above.

The Long Term Side Effects of Untreated Acne

Posted by Andrew on 25-Oct-2016 10:24:02

The best way to prevent scarring from acne is to either prevent the breakout occurring, or treat it quickly before the scar tissue hardens. If you suffer from acne, you may be using cleansers or lotions to try to clear it up.

If you have been using medication to tackle your acne, you may have suffered from the potentially serious side effects of taking prescription medication. If you really want to avoid scars from these breakouts, then you need to use an effective treatment.

Use Bio Oil On Stretch Marks? We Have Something Better

Posted by Andrew on 28-Sep-2016 06:26:45

A popular go-to for Mummy’s who experience stretch marks during pregnancy is Bio Oil or similar oils or creams in an effort to reduce the appearance of their stretch marks.
