Key Points

When it comes to facial rejuvenation it is important to note that not all lasers are the same. Our Cutera Excel V laser is a powerful and effective medical grade laser, unlike so many of the lasers in the market.

Similarly, not all staff doing laser procedures are the same – at Hunter Plastic Surgery you have the confidence of knowing our laser is only operated by our trained Cosmetic Nurses, our Cosmetic Therapists or our Plastic Surgeon, Dr Moncrieff.

Our Cosmetic Therapist will provide a comprehensive skin assessment and treatment plan at your first visit. During this 60 minute consultation our Therapist will:

· Review your medical history and discuss your concerns
· Provide a fruit enzyme medifacial treatment
· Perform a Woods lamp assessment
· Prepare your action plan
· Offer you a medical grade sunscreen

This consultation is $100 and offers $165 of value.

Targets: skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots and sun damage

Clear Laser Facial is non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using Cutera’s Excel V laser. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with ageing and photo damage (sun damage).

What does it do?

The Clear Laser Facial is very effective for improving uneven skin tone. It can treat individual pigment changes like brown age spots; it can also treat widespread blotchiness, freckles, skin redness and individual fine veins.

How does it work?

The Clear Laser Facial uses light to heat the pigment and blood in the top layer of your skin to reduce discolouration and promote a more even skin tone.

How is your treatment different from other options?

The Clear Laser Facial treats specific areas without abrading the skin’s surface. There is no need to interrupt your normal routine.

How many treatments will I need?

It depends on what you are having treated. Typically three to five treatments can provide significant clearance. When you come in for your consultation, we will give you information tailored to your particular needs and desires.

How long does each treatment take?

It varies according to the size of area you are having treated, but one treatment typically ranges from 5 to 30 minutes.

What does it feel like?

You will feel a series of brief pinches, similar to a rubber band snapping, but no local anaesthesia or pain medication is necessary.

What can I expect afterwards?

If you have specific spots treated they will darken immediately and begin to flake off naturally within one to three weeks to reveal clearer skin. If you have general redness or fine veins treated, the blush will gradually lighten over three to five treatments.

Is it permanent?

Over time new spots may appear, as a result of new sun exposure and the ongoing ageing process. These too can be removed.

Is it safe?

Yes, the Clear Laser Facial is safe. As with all medical procedures there is a slight degree of risk, and we will discuss this with you thoroughly when you come in for a consultation.

Can anyone have it done?

Anyone with a light to medium colour skin may be a candidate for the Clear Laser Facial, but those with darker skin tones may not. We will assess your particular skin type and let you know if you’re a candidate at the time of your consultation.

How much does it cost?

This varies on the area treated, but as a guide:

  • facial treatment is $300 (full face)
  • combined neck and chest is $300
  • or $500 for face, neck and chest.
  • our VIPs also enjoy savings of 15%

Targets: wrinkles and redness, management of large pores and skin texture

What does it do?

The Glow Laser Facial does something unique to the skin rejuvenation area. It is proven to not only minimise fine lines but also to reduce large pores, uneven, crepe-paper type or pebbled skin texture and overall redness and flushing.

How does it work?

We use our laser to gently heat the skin below the surface. This “healthy heat” stimulates the body’s own natural healing response and the texture of your skin literally becomes smoother. Depending on what you are having treated, pores get smaller, lines are decreased as your underlying collagen is refreshed and the colour of your skin will even out. We will discuss this thoroughly when you come in for your consultation.

How many treatments will I need?

People and conditions will vary in the way they respond, based on their skin biology. Typically we recommend a series of four to six treatments to optimise results.

How long does each treatment take?

Each treatment session takes approximately 45 minutes.

What does it feel like?

The Glow Laser Facial is very comfortable; it’s sometimes called the warm laser facial. You will feel a warming sensation on your skin as the handpiece is slowly moved back and forth about half-inch above your skin.

What can I expect afterwards?

You can return to normal activities immediately. You may be flushed from the heat but that will disappear within a few hours of treatment. Individual treatment results are often subtle but the overall effect builds over time.

Is it safe?

Yes! Hundreds of thousands of Glow Laser Facials have been done to date with no adverse effects. As with all medical procedures, there is a slight degree of risk, and we will discuss this with you thoroughly when you come in for a consultation.

How much does it cost?

Facial treatment $300 (full face). Our VIPs also enjoy savings of 15%

The total cost depends on the size of the area and the number of treatments we estimate are needed to achieve the result you desire.

We understand that sometimes things change! Given the high demand for consultations, all we ask that clients give us at least 2 full working days notice (by phone – 4920 7700) if they are not going to be able to attend at their scheduled time to allow us to contact people on our wait-list to reallocate the time.
