Plastic surgical clinics offer a lot more than they used to. To keep up with consumer demand most of them offer a selection of what we call “non-surgical treatments” that do a whole lot more than the basic exfoliation and facials offered in the past and offer a different level of expertise than a high street ‘beauty clinic’. NorthEast Plastic Surgery have two MediClinics, one in Melbourne and one in Brisbane each offering identical treatments and complementing their plastic surgical practices. They are getting a name as the ‘place to go’ for non-surgical treatments. We asked them to share with us some of the treatments that patients are loving and which ones are getting the best results.
An initial consultation is essential
An excellent MediClinic will always insist on an initial dermal consultation and skin analysis to identify any skin issues or concerns that you have before recommending treatments or procedures. NorthEast MediClinic advise this is essential. “Our experienced dermal therapists conduct thorough consultations to analyse your skin in order to address your concerns and goals optimally. This consultation includes a personalised treatment plan and home care recommendations to maintain results.”
This is an extremely important step as it allows your practitioner to identify what is likely to work for you, your skin and your skin goals. It also shows a level of responsibility for the desired results from your practitioner that you definitely want from someone who is going to be treating your face!
NorthEast MediClinic offers dermal fillers as they are one of the most popular ways to deal with a variety of aesthetic concerns including:
- Restoration of volume to facial areas that might have become hollow due to the volume loss associated with ageing;
- Smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines that appear anywhere and everywhere from the sides of our eyes when we smile (crow’s feet) to smile lines at the side of our lips, and everywhere in between;
- Plumping up lips;
- Creating appropriate facial contours.
- Keep in mind that the results of dermal fillers are only as good as the practitioner performing the treatment. Professional education, training and qualifications are the only way to understand the face and its underlying structure. Clinical experience allows judgement of how such knowledge ought be applied. These are essential prerequisites to know where and how much filler of what type to inject in order to optimise results. NorthEast MediClinic advise us that their practitioners are highly experienced at the forefront of clinical practice and standards of care.
NorthEast MediClinic also offer anti-wrinkle treatments to manage skin creases which form as a consequence of underlying muscle activity. Just as for dermal filler treatments, highly skilled, experienced practitioners are essential to assess your face and deliver treatment with appropriate expertise. Accept nothing less.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Regeneration
NorthEast MediClinic also offers PRP – a system which uses a patient’s own blood to isolate platelet rich plasma containing growth factors which is then injected to promote tissue regeneration and repair. It is a technique that can be used to address the effects of ageing on skin texture and appearance, including pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin needling has come on in leaps and bounds in the last few years and is recognised as one of the best ways to rejuvenate and revitalise tired looking and ageing skin. It works on a deeper dermal level to restore collagen and skin tissues by causing controlled skin injury which then triggers regeneration. It boosts thickness, colour, texture and consistency of skin. NorthEast MediClinic advise, “We use Dermapen which works by a series of sterile disposable microneedles creating channels within the skin to stimulate collagen production and other benefits. We obtain great results and are able to address lines, wrinkles, ageing skin, scarring and pigmentation.”
NorthEast MediClinic offers the DermaSweep, a non-invasive exfoliation, dermabrasion and skin-resurfacing system. It may incorporate infusions of topical solutions to achieve facial and décolletage rejuvenation in a wide variety of skin types. It cleanses, revitalizes, does not require downtime and can be used to address a variety of skin problems including fine lines and wrinkles, damaged skin, uneven texture and acne scarring.
This has to be THE treatment of 2018. Low-Level light therapy is a non-invasive, painless, relaxing and safe treatment for all skin types. Healite II delivers concentrated energy to promote a cellular response which helps to enhance healing, relieve pain and rejuvenate skin. NorthEast MediClinic have the latest Healite II machines offering all available current wavelengths, in both Melbourne and Brisbane. They advise this is definitely their hottest treatment and their patients absolutely LOVE the results that are being obtained.
Medical peels are like the previous facials on steroids! NorthEast MediClinic advise these are extremely popular and a great way to obtain fabulous results easily. Heading to a MediClinic that is part of a plastic surgical practice which really cares about what is offered to their patients is your best bet – NorthEast MediClinic advise us that a variety of peels with different ingredients can target a wide range of concerns. In general, a good peel will exfoliate, help improve circulation, may include a microdermabrasion to remove more of the superficial layer of dead skin cells, help to firm/tighten up the skin, smooth out any fine lines and leave your skin looking much healthier and brighter. It can help with redness, pigmentation, acne, help to unclog pores, reduce blemishes and help to diminish post-breakout dark spots.
