OBSERV consultation for healthy skin, The Skin Suite, Bulimba, Brisbane, Australia

To ensure you achieve a dramatic result, your first step will be a professional consultation with your Skin Therapist to establish your concerns and expectations. This will ensure we design a treatment program that is ideal for you.

This is a face to face discussion where we get to know you and your skin. We can answer your skin and skin care related questions. It also allows you to get to know us and if you’d like us to guide & ride with you on your journey to skin health. From this session you will feel more educated and empowered on your own skin and how best to manage your skin. As well as get an understanding of treatment procedures, timings and pricing so you can decide what's best for you.

You can book your assessment as a stand-alone appointment, or in conjunction with our Prescriptive Facial, ideal for “first timers” to the clinic.

DMK

 
 

Enzyme Therapy

DMK Enzyme Therapy, The Skin Suite, Bulimba, Brisbane, Australia
 

Enzyme Therapy is highly customisable and buildable for the individual skin concern. Enzyme Therapy treatments improve the skin’s ability to function by dissolving dead cells and impurities trapped within the skin. This in turn restores vital cellular nutrition and oxygenation, required for cellular regeneration. Enzyme Therapy stimulates collagen production, restoring structural integrity back to the skin. It is suitable for a wide range of conditions such as ageing skin, sun damage, acne, rosacea and pigmentation.

Alkaline Resurfacing

Alkaline raises the pH of the skin to swell, soften and dissolve excess cell build-up. It's provides effective skin resurfacing for scarring and pigmentation, and also releases inflammation, impaction and kills the P acne bacteria. Alkaline is very effective in cleaning out impacted hair shafts and dissolving the hair at the same time, and is often used in a treatment regime for congestion and acne. A program of Alkaline for scarring, congestion or rosacea are strictly by consultation.

Alkaline Wash Hair Removal

Alkaline Wash is an effective painless and harmless hair removal procedure for the face and body that works by dissolving the hair.

 Remodelling Procedure Peel

This treatment is an effective resurfacing procedure for those wanting dramatic results. The treatment is inclusive of two Pro Alpha Peel or RP applications, Two ‘Lift-Off’ treatments and Transdermal Nutrition treatments. A DMK essentials home care pack including retosin, DMK EFA+ and a serum of choice for the 2 week preparation program prior to application.

Omnilux

omnilux, healthy skin, The Skin Suite, Bulimba, Brisbane, Australia
 

Omnilux revive™ stimulates cellular activity. As cellular activity increases cells become more permeable and responsive, blood flow increases, leading to greater tissue oxygenation and detoxification. Skin appears clearer with less fine lines, is plumped up and hydrated.

The effect of active skincare products can be greatly enhanced.

Omnilux revive™ can be used alone for primary skin rejuvenation for wound healing, psoriasis and acne. It can also be successfully used with injectables, chemical peels and other popular aesthetic treatments.

As we grow older, the cells that manufacture the skin’s supportive structures begin to slow down. Environmental damage from the sun’s rays speed up this process and produce free radicals that damage the skin and the cells that produce collagen and elastin. Omnilux™ light therapy targets specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skin’s supportive structures and creates cellular activity to increase their effectiveness in producing collagen and elastin, leading to a softening of fine lines and improved skin tone.


DERMAPEN 3

The Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device with the results being similar, if not better, to laser resurfacing and Fraxel treatments without the typical side effects or downtime associated with these abalative heat based treatments. Used to effectively treat open pores, fine lines, scarring, acne, pigmentation, rosacea and generally improve the overall tone and texture of skin.

When will I start to see improvement / how many treatments?

A course of DermaPen treatments are recommended to deliver and sustain long lasting skin correction and results. A professional skin consultation will determine the best course of action and number of treatments required. As a guide, 3-4 treatments are recommended for ageing and wrinkles, 6-8 for scar reduction and up to 8 treatments for stretch marks. Sessions are performed at 4-8 weekly intervals. DermaPen triggers a cascade of the skin’s natural healing mechanisms which creates new healthy collagen. While visible improvement will appear around 2-4 weeks post-procedure, the repair cascade may continue for up to 24 months after just 1 treatment. Multiple sessions provide progressive stimulation to further enhance results and longevity.

Does Dermapen treatment hurt?

DermaPen 3 oscillate so quickly that the tip of the Dermapen™ easily *glides* across the skin, without catching or causing any dermal tearing. For more intensive needling procedures, an anaesthetic cream may be applied 30 minutes prior to treatment. This reduces any sensitivity or discomfort; a vibrating sensation with light pressure is felt. After the treatment, the skin will look pink and feel warm and slightly tight, similarly to that of light sunburn. This feeling will progressively reduce over a 1-2 day time period.


CRYOPEN

cyropen, The Skin Suite, Bulimba, Brisbane, Australia
 

The CryoPen™, which allows the removal of unsightly skin lesions in a matter of seconds. The device uses a very precise jet of highly compressed liquefied nitrous oxide (N2O) to destroy benign lesions, such as warts, skin tags, and age spots. The Cryo™ freezes the lesion’s inter-cellular fluid, forming ice crystals, which subsequently rupture the cell membrane, destroying the cell.

The high precision applicator tips allow for a very targeted treatment, ensuring that only the lesion is being treated, and not the healthy tissue around it. This helps to greatly reduce the risk of post-treatment hypo-pigmentation, and makes the Dermapen Cryo™ safe for all areas of the face and body, even near the eyes.

Please note: Suspicious moles or sunspots will require doctor’s approval prior to treatment to ensure patient safety.

How safe is cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a low-risk procedure. The Dermapen Cyro™ delivers N2O directly to the lesion, and not the healthy surrounding tissue. The Dermapen Cyro™ is both CE and FDA registered.

Is the treatment painful?

A cold sensation is felt when the nitrous oxide reaches the bottom of the lesion, the treatment duration can be as little as 5 seconds, making it virtually pain free. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment. Occasionally a blister might form and persist for a few hours.

Will there be a follow up session?

A follow up visit is included in the initial consultation charge after 2 to 4 weeks to confirm that all pathological tissue has disappeared or if a follow up treatment is necessary.


MICRODERMABRASION

microdermabrasion, The Skin Suite, Bulimba, Brisbane, Australia
 

Diamond Microdermabrasion is a quick, non-invasive skin treatment, ideal for cleaning, refining and smoothing the skin surface. The procedure removes the surface layer of dead skin and stimulates healthy vital reactions in the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in soft and hydrated skin that glows. Improvements in skin conditions can be obtained, with reductions in uneven textured skin, scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, and superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots.

It is normal for the skin to be slightly pink afterwards, which can last up to a few hours. Mild shedding of the skin is common in the first few days of early treatments, but is uncommon once the skin is in better condition. Where acne pustules have been treated, the area may be red and small scabs may form, lasting for several days. It’s essential that you don’t pick any scabs, as this can cause scarring. After a few days, you will see a visible improvement, with dull and stressed looking skin appearing smoother and fresher.

There are two types of machine commonly used: one that utilises a constant flow of micro-crystals to abrade the skin, and another that achieves abrasion with a laser cut diamond tip wand. The diamond tip wand allows areas closer to the eyes and mouth to be treated more accurately, while the crystal machine has a limited scope, due to the possibility of crystals getting into the eyes and causing damage. Diamond tip machines are also easier to control, are less irritating to the skin, and result in a more precise treatment.

The Skin Suite use a medical-grade diamond tip machine for all Microdermabrasion treatments to obtain the best results.
