CryoLipo

For many of us, despite diligently dieting and exercising, those stubborn extra kilos can be very difficult to lose. Depending on genetics, those excess fat cells will accumulate in different areas of the body. At The Skin Centre, we specialise in non-surgical options for skin, hair and nail treatments. Traditionally, one might have thought liposuction was the only procedure to effectively reduce these fat pockets, however this is not the case. Using cutting-edge technology, the CryoLipo procedure is an effective alternative to traditional liposuction, particularly effective for smaller areas of excess fat. This is ideal for those last few kilos that just won’t budge. There is no surgery or anaesthesia and there is little to no downtime. If you aren’t sure whether you might meet the criteria for...

Scalp Health

Dr Freeman shares the scoop on common scalp problems and the best treatments, hair & scalp products to use Dandruff Has many causes, from simply a dry scalp to diseases like psoriasis and seborrhoeic dermatitis. For simple dryness, which can occasionally generate a mild itch, try shampooing the hair less often and with a cooler water stream.

Ultraformer – a non-surgical, non-invasive facelift

Ultraformer is a non-surgical, non-invasive rejuvenation procedure for the face, neck and chest, that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.

Ultraformer treatment also stimulates the creation of new collagen, which further helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. The beauty of Ultraformer is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle healing response to gently, gradually restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultraformer requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a...

Acne Myths

Based on the available literature reviews there is no evidence to support a causal connection between isotretinoin and major depression or suicide, because  the number of suicides reported among users of isotretinoin does not exceed the number that would be predicted on the basis of the suicide rates.  Overall patients are actually happier because there acne has gone. In the case of a depressive episode occurring for the first time in someone on isotretinoin it is wise to stop the medication especially if there is a headache. The exception to this is if their caring Psychiatrist recommends against withdrawal of the treatment. Myths: 'Acne is a sign of adolescence and will wear out with time'.It is true that acne occurs at adolescence and gradually wears out by the...
