collagen growth and long-term collagen rebuilding then occurs, producing
ongoing improvement of loose skin, folds and lines. For some, results are
immediate, others see results in six weeks, and improvements up to six months.

Breast augmentations, reductions and lifts account for the majority of
cosmetic surgery procedures undertaken in Australia. Recent advances
in breast reduction and lift techniques have seen many plastic surgeons use a
‘short scar’ reduction pattern, producing a much shorter vertical scar. The result is
a more aesthetically pleasing breast shape that is maintained over a longer term.
Put away the trackies and slip on the shorts! Liposculpture is the
technique of body contouring using liposuction. It is designed to
remove localised collections of fat on the thighs, buttocks and abdomen,
as well as the arms, neck and under the chin. The latest advance is the use of
ultrasound-assisted liposuction, which boosts the emulsification of fat cells and
increases the tightening effect on the skin to improve the overall result.
TITANIUM SKIN NEEDLING
Medical skin needling restores the healthy appearance of the skin
at a fraction of the cost of laser treatments and with minimal or zero
downtime. It is a safe and virtually pain-free treatment for wrinkles
and lines, scarring, enlarged pores, sun damage and stretch marks.
The ultimate skin needling device is a Titanium Dermaroller with gold-plated
microneedles. Titanium is recommended over traditional stainless steel rollers,
as it gives the needles a finer, more durable edge, resulting in less pain and
irritation. Gold-plating of the needles maintains sterility and prevents oxidation
and pitting of the surface. For more on Dermarolling techniques, see p130.
Photonlite therapy is an entirely non-invasive, non-laser treatment, that
starts working immediately. It has the added benefit of reduced sun
sensitivity compared with laser procedures. Using LED (Light Emitting
Diode) technology, light is projected into the layers of the skin to
produce new collagen – essentially tricking the skin into thinking it’s younger. Ideal
for treating acne, lines and wrinkles, sun damage, rosacea and stretch marks.
Recent advances in skincare technology have seen a
surge in the use of medical-strength skincare products to
improve skin condition. The latest to hit Perth is ObagiTM.
Available only through plastic surgeons and medical clinics, ObagiTM transforms
skin at a deep cellular level, with visible improvements occurring within four to
six weeks. So effective are the results, most women ‘go naked’ after a course of
treatment, doing away with regular make-up. A physician-strength system, ObagiTM
must be professionally monitored. Story supplied by Julie Lynch of the Western
Australian Plastic Surgery Centre (WAPSC) and Assure Medispa.
