What is Fraxel?
Fraxel was one of the very first fractional lasers. Unlike other lasers, fractional lasers are able to treat both the epidermis and the dermal layers of the skin. They do this by delivering thousands of very fine columns of laser energy into the skin. These columns of laser treatment result in the removal of old pigmented epidermal skin cells and induce collagen remodelling and new collagen formation. The skin in between these columns of laser energy is not treated and hence only a fraction of the skin is treated at any one time. This means fractional laser treatment results in a faster healing process with much less downtime. Usually this is between 3 and 5 days.

What are the benefits of lip enhancement?
Lip enhancement gives you a more defined smile, can be used to prevent lipstick bleeding into the surrounding skin, can enhance or produce a lip pout and it can be used to correct the downwards effects of aging on the corner of the mouth so that it camouflages this downward appearance and therefore make you look less tired or much happier.

Fraxel® Laser Resurfacing Melbourne
Fraxel® renews the skin’s surface, by stimulating collagen production, giving you a refreshed, youthful glow and subtly making your skin look younger.
Fraxel® uses a laser to resurface damaged skin.  Fractional lasers treat the skin with enhanced micro-pulses of light, which stimulate new collagen production.  It specifically treats concerns such as wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scars and the sun spots and superficial pigmentation that are the hallmarks of sun exposure.
Fraxel® only treats targeted problem areas, so results are focused and effective.  As with any laser treatment expect some downtime and redness (usually a little less than a week).  These will be discussed at your complimentary consultation.

Lip Enhancement Injections Melbourne
What is lip enhancement?
Lip enhancement is a procedure that improves and refills the lips either to recreate the fullness of your lips when you were younger, or to improve the balance between the upper and lower lips or to augment the central part of your lip.
Lip enhancement in the past has been performed with collagen, but more recently advances in filling technology have allowed the use of a natural sugar gel.
The lips are one of the main features of your face and form a focal point that indicates to others as to how happy or healthy you are.  As we age, the lips tend to become thinner and there is a loss of volume in the lips so that they may also be accompanied by fine vertical lines, particularly across the upper lip and the corners of the mouth may drop and droop downward.
Lip enhancement is a technique in which a filler is strategically and carefully injected into the body of the lip to refill the lip and to rebalance the lip so that it looks very similar to the way your lips looked when you were younger, or it can be used to rebalance the upper and lower lips so that they are more symmetrical and more aesthetically balanced.
Lip enhancement involves the careful and skilful injection of a dermal filler into the lip.  In the past this was only possible with collagen which had a number of side-effects, and in particular was associated with excessive swelling and redness after the procedure.  The newer techniques use a natural sugar which works to attract the body’s natural water into the lips.  Because it is very similar to natural sugars in the body, there is minimal swelling and redness.  Additionally, the newer fillers also contain local anaesthetic in the injecting medium so that this usually is extremely well tolerated with virtually no pain.

Dermal Filler Injections in Melbourne @ Renew
Dermal fillers allow the rejuvenation and filling of your face or lips to provide a new and youthful appearance.  It involves the use of a natural filler, which is injected through an ultrafine needle to strategically plump up or re-contour your face, lips or eyelids.
It can also be used to camouflage any wrinkles or indentations in or around your eyes or forehead, and can be used to blend the junction between your lower eyelid and your cheek, or between your cheek and your upper lip.   It can also be used to camouflage the lower cheek jowls or to redefine the angle of your jaw and mandible.
The treatment involves the strategic and careful injection of the natural sugar gel into the soft tissue.  In the past this soft tissue augmentation was only really possible with collagen, which had a number of side-effects, and was particularly associated with excessive swelling and redness after the procedure.
The newer techniques use the natural sugar gel to attract the body’s natural water into the soft tissue.  As it is very similar to the natural sugars in the body, there is minimal swelling and redness.  In addition, the newer fillers also contain local anaesthetic in the injecting medium so the injection is extremely well tolerated with virtually no pain.

Anti Wrinkle Injections Melbourne
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections use a natural protein derived from bacteria to target the junction between the nerve and muscles in the human body.
This protein works to temporarily stop the signalling from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore can be used to strategically immobilise a muscle.
They are particularly effective at removing unwanted lines and wrinkles, such as crows’ feet, forehead and frown lines, and can be used to give you an enhanced or less angry appearance.
The technique is particularly safe and can be performed as an outpatient procedure here in our rooms.  The protein which is utilised is a natural protein which is purified and then diluted in saline to provide the exact amount of product.
