Aesthetic treatments

A survey by the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australia revealed that skin tone and texture, such as redness, sun spots, freckles, pigmentation and complexion, were the most concerning aspects of appearance for the majority (58.5 per cent) of respondents. The appearance of fine lines (38.9 per cent) ranked second among those surveyed, followed by loss of volume in the face (34.7 per cent) and weight (34.7 per cent), which were voted equal third.

Clear Complexions Clinics’ Suzie Hoitink explains why there is such a huge variation in costs of aesthetic treatments at different clinics. “Treatments by medical professionals using approved equipment will always be more expensive because those clinics invest in their staff, their technologies and their systems to ensure clients safety” Her advice on choosing a clinic is to ask whether their equipment is listed on the Therapeutics Goods Register.

House of Camille’s Kim Larsen and Clear Complexions Clinics’ Suzie Hoitink both predict that stem cell products will be the next big trend for facial rejuvenation.
