Spring not only signifies the weather improving after the end of a long and cold winter, but also the start of the social season with grand final barbecues, the spring racing carnival and catching up with friends and work colleagues in the run up to Christmas. It is a time the layers start to come off and it becomes more difficult to hide the areas you might otherwise be covering up.

Luckily, there’s so many treatments available this year which can help you exude confidence and look your absolute best. One of our resident Doctors, and laser treatment specialist, Dr Garth Dicker has compiled a list of the top 5 most common conditions our clients seek treatments for at this time of year.

1 – Unwanted Hair

Hairy legs and Hairy Underarms are never a good look but at this time of year they are a definite no. Laser Hair removal is a popular treatment all year round. The best and safest long term results with laser hair removal are achieved with medical grade lasers used by University trained practitioners in a medical laser clinic. Remember you should not have a suntan when having laser hair removal as you risk unwanted skin reactions. This pre summer period is the ideal time to have laser hair removal treatment.

2 – Unsightly Leg Veins

Varicose and Spider Veins always look unsightly but as the coats, long dresses and dark stockings give way to shorter hem lines and high heels the need to address this very common problem becomes much more urgent. Unsightly leg veins need to be treated sooner rather than later at this time of year as several treatments may be needed and there may be some bruising after treatment. Most treatments are walk and in walk out with no downtime and even one treatment can often give significant improvement.

3 – Wrinkles

Appearing younger, less stressed and happy are always a good look and the fastest and safest way of achieving this is by the use of anti-wrinkle injections. A natural and refreshed look can be achieved quickly and effectively with a few tiny injections. The most popular choices are to get rid of the frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet around the eyes and worry lines on the forehead. The great thing is that within 3 or 4 days of treatment significant improvement that will last for well into summer can be achieved. Of all cosmetic treatments anti-wrinkle injections consistently achieve the highest patient satisfaction ratings.

4 – Dull and Tired Skin

After a long cold winter the skin is often looking dull and tired and one of the best ways to freshen up your skin is with a Power Peel. A Power Peel is a combination of a microdermabrasion treatment and an enzyme reactivator peel. The microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin which then allows the peel to penetrate and rejuvenate the skin giving the skin a refreshed feel and enhanced luminosity. The Power Peel is a painless and effective lunchtime procedure with no downtime but immediate results.

5 – Uneven Pigment and Redness

Sun damage and uneven skin pigmentation, redness and rough texture can be a skin concern not only on the face but also on the back, shoulders and décolletage. This can become a particular worry when wearing outfits that reveal these areas. The BBL is a very popular treatment as it is a lunchtime procedure with little downtime that not only removes and improves skin blemishes quickly but also has longer term benefits in terms of skin rejuvenation.
