Countdown to your Picture Perfect Wedding - 6 months

IPL Rejuvenation

If you have any concerns about redness or pigmentation, and crave bright, clear, beautiful skin for your wedding day, then Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin rejuvenation is the answer.

Highly controlled flashes of filtered light are directed on to the skin in our Perth clinic and absorbed by the melanin in pigment spots and the blood in superficial blood vessels. The heat selectively destroys the pigment or vascular lesion while the surrounding tissue is undamaged.

You will feel a mild stinging sensation during the treatment, and afterwards you may experience some redness and a feeling akin to sunburn, however this should resolve within an hour or two. You can even wear mineral based makeup straight away if you wish, and we can apply this for you before you leave.

Within a few days you’ll notice your pigmentation and vascular activity darken (don’t panic, it’s meant to), and then in the following week it will flake off, revealing amazingly clear skin. As an added bonus, the heat in the dermis stimulates a healing response in the skin giving a fantastic boost in collagen production which could lessen fine lines and wrinkles.

Wrinkle Relaxers

Wrinkle relaxers are an injectable treatment that you might know by another name. Australian law prohibits us from using the name of prescription drugs, so we refer to them as wrinkle relaxers.

If you’ve not had wrinkle relaxers before the idea of them can be rather daunting, with some people worried they will be frozen in to an expressionless state. But rest assured, our doctors and nurses are highly skilled in creating a natural look with our wrinkle relaxers, and six months out from your wedding is a perfect time to try them for the first time.

This extremely safe and effective method of reducing or even eliminating facial lines and wrinkles is popular for crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Wrinkle relaxers can also be used to reduce a gummy smile and can give the appearance of an eye lift in some circumstances.

The relaxant blocks the nerve impulse to the muscle thus preventing movement. The effects take between two and ten days to appear and usually last three to four months. There is no down time associated with wrinkle relaxers, although some mild bruising can occur at the site of injection and we recommend no intense physical activity for the rest of the day.
