5 Reasons to Fraxel

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Dry wind, indoor heating and cold air can play havoc on our skin. You might have noticed flakey bits, tired-looking skin and an overall dry feel, as well as pigmentation lingering from the warmer months. As we prepare to snuggle inside for the Winter, it's the perfect time to give your skin a bit of TLC before you hibernate. 

Here are 5 reasons to have a Fraxel Laser Rejuvenation so you can emerge from under the doona in spring like a beautiful butterfly.

  1. It's our June sale! Take 20% off your Fraxel treatment and so long as you book and pay in June, you can have the treatment anytime up until 31 August 2017. 
  2. Winter is the perfect time to get Fraxel laser treatment. While your putting on your winter coat, shed your summer skin. Following a Fraxel treatment, the skin flakes , a little like a snake shedding it's skin. The skin underneath emerges looking radiant and rejuvenated. 
  3. While we love the Perth sunshine, it does take its toll on our skin, especially our face, neck, décolletage (chest), fore arms and the backs of our hands. A Fraxel laser treatment will minimise sun spots, age spots, freckles, sun damage including the pre-cancerous skin condition, Acitinic Keratoses (AK's). 
  4. Fraxel reduces scarring. Acne scarring, surgical scars, chicken pox scars and surface scars can be significantly reduced and even erased with Fraxel and the results are permanent!  
  5. Smooth fine lines! Fraxel gives your skin an intense collagen stimulation, leaving your skin looking fresh, plump and radiant.

New LiLash Stockists in Perth!

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

I once woke from a night out. I looked in the mirror and saw an enormous black spider on my cheek. I frantically ran through the house screaming, hopping up and down and slapping myself in the face. I can still remember the stunned expression on my kids’ faces. 

It turns out it was a false eyelash stuck to my cheek. 

Let’s leave false eyelashes where they belong - in the 70s or beaten to a hairy little pulp in the bin in my kitchen.

We’re all fluttering our long luscious lashes with excitement at Skin Resus as proud LiBrow and LiLash stockists in Perth. LiLash is a line of serums that deliver long curly eyelashes and bold thick eyebrows in weeks - and it works. 

Li Lash and Li Brow
  • It’s safe. 
  • It’s easy to use. 
  • Results in just a few weeks. 
Li Lash Before and After

LiLash is physician-formulated serum that has been ophthalmologist tested, making it safe for those with sensitive eyes or contact lenses. (Does that mean it's tested on ophthalmologists instead of animals?)

How to use LiLash Eyelash Serum 

  • Apply LiLash to clean, dry skin in the morning or at night.
  • Apply the LiLash along the lash line of your upper eyelid, as you would with liquid eyeliner).  
  • Put it on the top lash only, as you blink it spreads to the lower lashes. Wait three minutes before putting on makeup. 
LiLash Eyelash Serum is available in 3-month (2ml) or 6-month (4ml) treatment cycles. Perfectly portioned to eliminate waste 

How to use LiBrow Serum 
  • Apply LiBrow Serum to the skin under the arch of your eyebrow and directly onto sparse or patchy areas.  
  • As with LiLash, wait three minutes before applying other products. 
  • Botanical tinting agent gently and gradually darkens brow hair as it grows. 
  • LiBrow is available in 3-month (3 mL) or 6-month (6 mL) treatment. Size perfectly portioned to eliminate waste.
  • Not tested on animals (I think we can thank the ophthalmologists for that). 

Both LiLash and LiBrow are backed by a 90 Day Money Back Guarantee. 

Did you pluck your eyebrows into oblivion in the 90s? Have you poked yourself in the eye with tweezers while applying strand-by-strand false eyelashes? Looking for LiLash Stockists in Perth?   

Come and see us at Skin Resus, your LiLash stockists in Floreat, Perth. Check out the real life results on Instagram and Facebook #lilashworks

Dr David talks pigment...

Thursday, March 30, 2017

It has been a long time since I was in a nightclub, but you never forget the way the lights pick up your freckles. You can look positively infectious in this environment!

This is a practical demonstration on the way melanin in the skin absorbs UV and blue light. Melanin actually forms clusters around the DNA in the nucleus of our skin cells protecting it like bodyguards around a gangster!

Unfortunately, many of us are born with very little protection and our skin suffers with sun exposure.


Mottled and irregular pigmentation in the skin is a sign of UV damage and photo-ageing. Think of the Queen. Her skin shows age but no pigmentation - indeed natural pigment decreases in the skin with age.


But we get out of the palace a bit more than she does, and develop lentigines (flat irregular pigment spots), seborrhoeic keratoses (raised sometimes warty pigmented papules), naevi (moles), and melasma (hormonal pigmentation).

   
   

So prevention, we need to can the tan...you know how! We recommend that you use some form of sun protection every day. This might be in your makeup if you’re indoors all day, an SPF 30+ as a moisturiser when you are in and out, or an SPF 50+ for outdoor activities.


Skin Resus can help treat the abnormal pigmentation too. Intense Pulsed LIght (IPL) is excellent for superficial pigmentation and large areas such as full face and decolletage. For focal pigment issues we use our Revlite laser - this targets melanin selectively and safely and is excellent for lentigines. Thicker pigment spots may need our Erbium laser or cryotherapy, and diffuse pigment such as melasma does best with our Fraxel laser.


And lest we forget, we must put on our vitamins! Whilst there is pretty slim evidence that taking vitamins by mouth has any use, topical (applied to the skin) vitamin A, C and B3 have a growing body of evidence to support their benefits to the skin for anti-ageing and reduction of pigmentation problems.

Four Steps to Healthy Skin for Teens

Thursday, March 16, 2017
Hysterical mood swings, crying, screaming, door slamming! It's completely understandable that you do all of these things when parenting your teen. God knows you're already the cab driver, negotiator, lion tamer and feeder, so let's make their skin care as quick and painless as possible. 

The Teen Aspect Starter Kit was designed to create an uncomplicated skin care regime for the busy teenager. Best perforned morning and night, this simple regime will kick off a lifetime of healthy habits. 

Teen Aspect Starter Kit (Cleanser, Toner, Lotion and Spot Stop) is this month's special at Skin Resus. For March only, you can order this pack for your troublesome/terrific teen for $45. (RRP $60)

Androgens (sex hormones) increase in boys and girls in their teens. Androgens cause the oil glands to become larger and produce more oil, or sebum.  When there's too much sebum the pores or hair cells become blocked with skin cells. These become reddened and inflamed and are prone to infection. Teen Aspect works to control the oil production, exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce inflammation and destroy bacteria.  

Step 1: Cleanse

First, wash away the sweat, dirt, makeup and grime of the day. Teen Aspect Cleanser is a gentle foaming cleanser that removes all of these particles from the follicles. Simply apply to damp skin by rubbing in a circular motion, then rinse. It won’t strip or dry out the skin and is perfectly suited for oily, normal, problem skin types. 

Step 2: Tone

Apply toner on a cotton swab and gently wipe over the face. Designed to effectively cut through residual oil and grime, Teen Aspect Toner ensures that key skin-changing actives reach their target. Mild on the skin, this toner won't strip or irritate and is fine for most skin types, except sensitive irritated skin. Pop in and see us and we'll advise you and your teen on something more suitable. 

Step 3: Moisturise 

Just two pumps of the Teen Aspect Facial Lotion onto the fingertips and gently massage into the skin. A light moisturiser, the Facial Lotion is packed with bacteria-targeting ingredients and soothing botanicals that provide teenagers' skin with additional protection, hydration and bacterial control. Great for all skin types. 

Step 4: Spot Stop 

Finally, Stop Spot is designed to be dabbed on to spots to quickly and affectively target them as they appear. 
 
Take a closer look at the Teen Aspect Kit in store or order online for $45 for March only!  

Severe Acne

For more severe acne, we may recommend prescription skin care and a course of Dimalux LED Light Therapy. Come in for a free consultation with one of our Registered Nurses and they can advise on the best treatment for you or your teen.

The 5 most popular cosmetic treatments this Feb

Friday, February 24, 2017

We've been flat out this Fab Feb - just the way we like it! If you're wondering what everyone is getting done, here are the 5 most popular cosmetic treatments so far this month.  

There's only 5 days to go of Fab Feb and 20% off all Cosmetic Treatments, Makeup and Skin Care but don't panic. Book and pay for your cosmetic treatment in Feb and you have until 30 April to have your treatment and still get 20% off! We don't call it Fab Feb for nothing! 

1. Wrinkle Relaxers 

Before Wrinkle Relaxers  After Wrinkle Relaxers
Wrinkle relaxers are fairly painless and a very effective way to tackle frown lines, smile lines (nothing's that funny!), crow's feet, forehead wrinkles and smokers' lines. A series of tiny injections containing a naturally-occurring protein extract into facial muscles temporarily block the impulse from the nerve to the muscle. It takes effect in just a few days and  can last up to 4 months. 

Expect compliments like: 'Wow! Your skin looks lovely!', 'Wow! You look exactly the same as you did 20 years ago!' and 'Damn! I never should have let her go!'

Perfect for: School reunions, weddings, running into an ex-boyfriend and just looking fabulous. 

Find out more about Wrinkle Relaxers and book your free consultation. 

2. Underarm Hair Removal

Before IPL Underarm Hair Removal  After IPL Underarm Hair Removal
OK, if you haven't already heard of IPL permanent hair removal, prepare to have your mind blown. This stuff works! IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light, controlled flashes of intense filtered light are directed onto the skin. The melanin in dark hair absorbs the light converting it into heat which destroys the follicle. It usually takes around 6 to 8 treatments with sessions 4 to 6 weeks apart. It stings a bit but much less than waxing. 

Expect compliments like: 'Who is your waxer, she's a genius!' and 'Were you born completely hairless?'

Perfect for: Never shaving, bleaching, plucking or hiding your underarms again. Spontaneous waving without embarrassment. 

Find out all you need to know about IPL Permanent Underarm Hair Removal

3. Lip Fillers and Cheek Fillers 

Before Lip Fillers   After Lip Fillers
Lip fillers are one of the most popular treatments at Skin Resus and with good reason. We're not talking Kylie Jenner, a subtle lip augmentation or enhancement can restore fullness to lips, plump up thin lips and treat those tiny little lip wrinkles and smoker's lines. A fine needle is used to inject sterile gel into the lips and along the border and includes a local anaesthetic to take the sting out of it. Treatments last 4 to 8 months. 

Cheek fillers are much the same, the filler is injected with a small needle and reduces signs of ageing, restores facial fullness and lifts facial sagging. 

Expect compliments like: 'I must kiss you, immediately!' and 'I don't know what it is but you look FABULOUS!'

Perfect for: Removing those subtle, yet insidious little ageing signs like thin lips and sagging cheeks. Amazing before and after selfies. #skinresusbeforeandafter

Study up on  Lip Fillers and Cheek Fillers and come and see us for a free consultation.  

4.  Bikini Hair Removal and Brazilian Hair Removal 

My bikini wearing days are long gone and rather than the Brazilian, I'm cultivating more of a Madagascan jungle down there. But it's not too late for all of you. If you are still messing about with nightmarish six weekly waxing visits over summer, that can all end with 6 to 8 treatments of IPL bikini or Brazilian hair removal. It hurst less than waxing and it's permanent.

Perfect for: Spontaneously grabbing the bathers and heading to the beach - anytime, anywhere forever. 

Expect compliments like: 'Thank you.' 

Learn more about Bikini and Brazilian Hair Removal. 

5. Full Face Rejuvenation

Before IPL Freckle Removal  After IPL Freckles Removal
If you want to look as though you've been on a holiday at a spa retreat, this is the treatment for you. IPL face rejuvenation is A-MAY-ZING! It removes sun damage, pigmentation, freckles, sun spots, age spots, broken capillaries, rosacea, redness and stimulates the collagen in your skin. All of these little spots leave tired looking little marks on your face, a full face rejuvenation removes them all and plumps the skin at the same time. Giving you an overall healthy glow. 

Perfect for: Removing trouble spots like rosacea and redness. Giving your face a good all over rejuvenation. 

Expect compliments like: 'Hey, beautiful, marry me!' and 'Who is your travel agent? You look fabulous!'

Full Face Rejuvenation comes with a free consultation. Book now! 

Take advantage of Fab Feb 20% off all cosmetic treatments. Book and pay in the next 5 days and have your treatment any time from now until 30 April.
