Here at Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine, we offer a variety of services which are tailored for patients who do not want to “under-go the knife”. These treatments range from anti-aging injections through to needle rollers and lasers.
The list of services can be found below:
Anti-wrinkle injections can come in many forms. We offer the 2 most common types of injections here. These injections are temporary, so if you find that you do not like the results or perhaps it’s not for you, the effects will pass.
Dermal fillers are injected just under the skin. These injections contain a gel-like solution which is designed to enhance the lost volume in that area. These injections can be either semi-permanent or permanent – the decision is up to the patient.
We only use good quality products here. Cheap service and cheap products will never be a part of our service, so you can rest assured you are always going to be treated with the utmost safety and professionalism.
We are able to obtain scans of your varicose or spider veins and inject them with a solution to collapse the vein. Typically patients will see very good improvements with just 1 session. This treatment has been proven to be extremely safe and effective.
As opposed to the traditional method of liposuction, we are able to perform treatments where small areas of unwanted fat can be simply “dissolved” with a series of injections.
This method is proven to work, but keep in mind it is for small areas only.
If you have “patchy” skin, irregularities, blemishes or colour variations, this is the treatment for you. Very in-expensive, this is something we can guide you through. You can even do it at home all by yourself!
PRP involves collection of your blood, typically 1 to 3 vials (this is where the name “Vampire” comes from). The plasma is then separated from your blood and either rolled onto the skin with a micro-needle roller or injection. We are happy to perform both methods.
PRP therapy is designed to re-hydrate your skin, improve collagen production and help with issues faced in the aging process. Typically 3 sessions are required.
Inducing specific controlled chemical products such as croton oil under doctor and nurse supervision means we can remove a fine layer of your skin which has been damaged by the sun or even just due to general aging. When the skin is removed, naturally your body will start to produce new healthy skin cells. What does this mean? It means the patient will have a few weeks of downtime where they need to avoid the sun, but the results can be as dramatic.
Just keep in mind – there are different stages of chemical peels. We do NOT have to use a deep peel. We can always use less invasive and easier superficial-grade chemical peels.
CO2 laser therapy works similarly to the chemical peel. While the end results can be very similar, the approach is different. We can guide you through this during the time of consultation.
