The Appeal of Cosmetic Procedures

Australian women and men are now spending $1 billion a year on cosmetic procedures.

For some, it is about vanity and stopping the visible signs of aging. For many others it is about self-confidence and improving their overall appearance and how they see themselves.

They choose to see it as enhancing their natural features, rather than changing their face. Studies have proven – if you love what you see in the mirror, you feel good about yourself. It can also improve your mood and make you healthier.

Looking After Your Skin

A glowing skin complexion can be achieved with a relentless commitment to good skincare.  However, fine lines and loss of volume are unavoidable and a natural progression in later life. 

Collagen is responsible for skin firmness and tone and elastin provides the skin with elasticity. As you age, the reduction in their production is what causes sagging and facial hollowing. Skincare products will only assist modestly in concealing this progression. 

  • Treatment options
    Dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle and skin boosting injections, as well as laser, are some of the most popular treatments for the aging-intervention process. They are minimally invasive dermatological techniques that have been developed for facial rejuvenation. If they are used in conjunction with a good skincare regime, they will prolong the results of aging.

Love the Skin You’re In

We all know when it comes to the way we look; we are our own worst critics. However wanting firm, fresh looking, radiant skin is not being vain. The desire to look attractive and ageless when we are older is natural. And while beauty is truly only skin deep, sometimes we just want to feel like we look our best. It gives us that boost of confidence that instantly makes you a more magnetic person.

So, if you want to be look ageless, do so and be proud.

Laser Treatment for Redness on Face

Laser Treatment for Redness on Face

Stress, sun, age – life in general can have a dramatic impact on the look and feel of our skin and we can definitely notice it.

To find out more, keep reading below or get in touch with our clinic. You can call us on 07 3325 5775 to discuss your options, send an online enquiry here or visit us in person at 3/25 Ferguson Street, Albany Creek.

Treating Facial Redness with Laser

Redness on the face can be caused by blood vessels being close to the skin surface or at times, rosacea or spider veins. No matter what the cause is, Define Laser can help to reduce the affects on your face.

We have seen some amazing results and very happy customers due to our laser treatment technique.

  1. The heat from the laser collapses the visible blood vessels.
  2. When the laser hits the targeted blood vessels, they are microscopically heated by this process and the body reacts by eliminating the intentionally injured vessels. They are then reabsorbed over a period of time. 

While there is no cure for rosacea or spider veins, the signs can disappear for long periods of time. If and when redness recurs, it can simply be controlled with another treatment. 

What is Involved in Treatment?

For the best results, we ask that you avoid sun exposure before and during the course of your treatment.

We treat the redness and broken veins with Laser  which delivers a pulse of bright light to the affected area, causing the broken vessels to heal up and fade away.

There is a feeling of heat during the laser treatment and your face may appear red for a period of time afterwards. Ice packs can help with this discomfort.

Patients are required to wear goggles during their treatment to protect their eyes from the intensity of the laser light.

It is recommended that you receive about 2 -3 monthly treatments to produce the best possible outcome.

Although facial redness is likely to be improved by treatment, it won’t disappear completely.

Everything you need to know about laser pigmentation removal

Everything You Need To Know About Laser Pigmentation Removal

It’s important to love the skin you’re in but at Define Laser & Cosmetic Clinic, we know first-hand how much our skin can change over time.

Unwanted freckles, spots and skin discolouration can all be a part of the aging process.

In this blog we’re going to talk about skin changes and everything you need to know about laser pigmentation removal.

Laser Pigmentation Removal

Age spots, freckles and other minor blemishes are caused by melanin, a substance which gives our skin its colour. When melanin gathers in one spot, it becomes noticeable as a discoloured area.  

The wavelengths of light produced by laser technology are designed to be absorbed by these pigmented areas causing the spots to gradually disappear.

The treatment is quick and not usually painful however, any discomfort experienced can be eased with an ice pack.

Undergoing Treatment

1. How it works

The light used from the lasers is absorbed by the darker areas and “shatters” the pigment, drawing it to the surface of the skin.

2. Results

We expect approximately 80% clearance of skin blemishes such as pigmentation after a course of facial laser. After 2-3 treatments patients can see a considerable difference in their appearance. The treatment is quick and effective and causes minimal damage to the surrounding skin tissue. 

Patients will see results in around 7-10 days.

3. Aftercare

Avoid sun for 7 days after your procedure and apply SPF and moisturiser.

You can also use makeup to cover any blemishes.

5. Recovery time

Recovery takes 3-7 days, but our qualified doctor can tailor the strength of the laser to suit your needs.

You’ll need about 2-4 sessions monthly depending on your skin condition.

6. Side effects

The most prominent side effects are transient darkening of the pigment, redness and mild swelling.

How to Treat Age Spots

Our bodies change as we get older and exposure to different elements, particularly the sun is going to have an effect.

Our skin takes the biggest impact which is why you may notice many changes with freckles, spots and discolouration.

In this blog, we’re going to talk about how to treat age spots and what’s involved in the procedure that is used at Define Laser & Cosmetic Clinic.

What are age spots?

Age spots is the most common term used but they can also be called solar lentigines, liver spots (although there is no connection to the liver), sun spots or seborrhoeic keratoses.

Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its colour. When the body is exposed to sunlight, extra melanin is produced to protect the skin from the UV rays and when the melanin clumps, it produces age spots. The more melanin that is produced, the darker the skin becomes.

Treatment options

  • Laser is the most effective treatment option with minimal downtime and disruption to the surrounding skin. Some of the benefits of laser treatment include:Minimal downtime and pain.
  • You will usually only need 2-3 treatments.
  • After the treatment ensure you use a good moisturizer and sunscreen in your daily routine if you don’t already, as this will assist in preventing the age spots from returning or any new ones popping up. 
  • Sun avoidance is the key to prevention of recurrence.

How we treat age spots

At Define Laser, we use a state-of-the-art laser machine that assures the procedure is safe and effective.

  • Freckles, age spots and pigmentation are targeted with minimal damage to the surrounding skin with fantastic results.
  • Our treatment is quick and your eyes are protected with goggles during the procedure.
  • Usually 2 – 3 visits are required depending on the extent of solar damage and the age of the skin.

How to prevent age spots returning

If you have had your age spots treated with laser, the spots will gradually fade over several weeks. Initially there may be a slight discoloration of the skin and darkening of the pigment, but that will fade. To prevent the age spots from returning, sun protection when outdoors is mandatory – sunscreen, hats and clothing to cover where possible.

How to remove rosacea

How to remove Rosacea

If you’re one of the many who experience the development of facial spider veins and generalised skin redness, you could benefit from these tips on how to remove rosacea.

While rosacea (pronounced row-zay-sha) cannot be cured, it can be controlled with the help of laser treatment.

To find out more about the treatment of rosacea, check out the blog below or speak to the team at Define Laser & Cosmetic Clinic on (07) 3325 5775.

What causes rosacea?

People can experience different triggers to rosacea however some of the common causes are:

  • becoming overheated.
  • having cold wind blowing on your face.
  • eating spicy foods.
  • hormonal based medications.
  • prolonged use of topical steroid creams.
  • excessive alcohol, smoking and sun exposure can also contribute to exacerbations.

These can result in the main symptom being the development of facial spider veins and generalised skin redness, with occasional pustule components.  

Treatment options

There are topical creams you can buy to treat moderate rosacea. However, reports show most patients who have tried laser say, while it is not a cure it does help reduce the visible blood vessels and redness. 

Usually after 3 treatments clients can see a 40-60% improvement. Depending how active the rosacea is, a single session of maintenance laser is required approximately every 6 months.

Ongoing care

After laser treatment, clients can use creams and serums that help to soothe and eliminate redness. Pustular components are treated separately and triggers are attempted to be identified.

It is recommended for post care after rosacea laser treatment to stay out of the sun, use a sunscreen whenever outside and avoid the triggers (foods, heat, stress, etc) which may cause it to flare up. Some triggers of rosacea are still being identified.

What causes spider veins?

What causes Spider Veins?

If you have small red and blue veins that have appeared on your skin, you may be thinking  what causes spider veins?

While the thought of having any type of spider on your body frightens you, having spider veins may make you self-conscious and have an impact on your social life and clothing choices.

In this latest blog from Define Laser & Cosmetic Clinic, we talk about why spider veins appear on your body and the best ways to treat them.

What causes spider veins?

Spider veins are small, damaged veins that can appear on the surface of the legs or face. They can be blue, purple or red in colour and look like thin lines but the veins themselves are not painful. 

In the legs, spider veins can occur when the valves inside the veins stop working properly. 

If the valve becomes weak or damaged, the blood will struggle to flow in the correct direction and it begins to pool inside the vein. Over time, this will cause a bulge in the vein which then branches out causing the spider vein.

Do they go away without treatment?

In some cases spider veins can disappear on their own. Pregnancy or weight gain can create spider veins but they will usually disappear after the pregnancy or weight loss. 

Treatment options

There are various treatment options ranging from compression stockings and socks, sclerotherapy – which involves injecting the vein and laser.  

Laser treatment is known as a very effective treatment for spider veins as it is reasonably short and non-invasive. Laser treatments tend to be less invasive and less painful. In the procedure, the light beam used causes the spider vein to clot and dry up. Suitable analgesia is discussed prior to the procedure which can be briefly uncomfortable during the treatment. Downtime is approximately 6 weeks to allow for fading of the veins or bruising before the subsequent laser session.

How to avoid them

As there is not enough knowledge to know what causes spider veins, we can’t say exactly how to prevent them.

However, maintaining a healthy weight and staying fit is helpful, as well as not standing or crossing your legs for a long period of time.

Male Filler Injections

Male Filler Injections

We know that it’s important for men to look and feel good too, that’s why at Define Laser & Cosmetic Clinic we have a range of services available for men, including male filler injections.

Dermal Fillers are a proven cosmetic procedure that can safely and effectively reduce wrinkles, lines and loss of volume.

It’s one of many procedures we offer to our clients that can help reduce the signs of aging.

For more information about our procedures, please call our clinic on (07) 3325 5775 or contact us online here.

How male fillers are different to female fillers

While there is no actual product difference on the fillers themselves, men and women prioritise different areas for treatment.

Men often choose to have areas smoothed and volumized such as cheekbones, under their eyes and the nasolabial fold.   

Being male, our qualified GP, Dr Lindsay Watson understands the different structure of a man’s face to a women’s and understands the injection sites vary.

Male fillers aren’t used to feminise the face, but to replace volume in the skin that has been lost with age. Dr Lindsay knows how to restore the plumpness, without overfilling or making obvious what has actually been done.

We find ladies often want to highlight facial features such as the cheekbone or lips but men generally just simply want to restore the lost volume naturally, without necessarily highlighting facial structures.

The eye and jaw areas are where most men choose to have filler injections. Men are generally after a sharp cheek line and volume to reduce sagging jowls. Another popular area is around the eyes to reduce a look of tiredness. Treating the eye area and bags underneath will help with the hallowed, tired look. 

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

There are many benefits to using dermal fillers including:

  • Natural looking results.
  • Help you feel good about yourself.
  • This quick and easy procedure has no downtime and is great for filling and treating deep lines and restoring loss of volume for under the eye area, mouth corners, cheeks, chin and jawlines.
  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is one of the most common used compounds in dermal fillers and this is a naturally occurring substance which is fundamental in keeping the skin hydrated and volumised.

Why Choose Define Laser

  • Dermal fillers are safe and effective if done by a qualified physician – We have a qualified doctor in our clinic!
  • Dr Watson constantly strives to keep updated with the latest treatment products and methods in order to achieve the best treatment outcome for our patients.
  • Laser is known to provide fast results and offer subtle aesthetic improvements with minimal downtime and natural results.
  • Another popular and effective treatment for men is laser facial rejuvenation. Pigmentation, rosacea, melasma, sun spots and fine lines can be improved with our nonablative lasers.

What to expect from your appointment

At Define Laser, we offer a free consultation where Kylie will assess your skin and hair type.  She will be able to determine the number of treatments required and will run through the process and prices with you.  

Avoid sun exposure for two weeks prior to your free consultation, as well as using fake tan. Kylie needs to see the natural state of your skin to be able to assess you properly.  Avoid tweezering, waxing or using topical creams and moisturizers prior to any treatment sessions.

To assess the skin, the root of the hair must be present for the laser to identify. So we ask that you shave the required treatment areas 24 hours prior to your appointment time. A clean shave with a sharp razor is a must.

After the first session it can take up to three weeks to see a difference.

After treatment care

  • You may experience some redness or swelling post treatment up to 12 hours, this is normal.  If it continues longer, please contact the clinic.
  • For any discomfort, you can treat the area with a cold pack or even Aloe Vera gels can also help ease pain or uncomfortable areas.
  • Avoid hot showers, swimming pools and spas for 12 hours post treatment to prevent any adverse reactions.
  • Make sure you use sunscreen to protect the area during the course of treatment and afterwards.

Repeating your treatment

In your free consultation, Kylie will develop a treatment plan specific to your needs, so it is important to return to her every 4- 6 weeks for your hair removal treatments. That way we can laser the hair when it’s in its growing stage and you will achieve your desired results. 

To see excellent results you will need 5-7 sessions and once your treatment plan is complete you will experience long term hair reduction, followed by a maintenance treatment as needed. 

NOTE: No clinic can guarantee 100% hair removal!
