ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS 

Australian dermatologists undertake intense training and rigorous examinations in anatomy to achieve the best results for your anti-wrinkle injection.

All anti-wrinkle injections are performed personally by Dr Millar.

These injections target the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and sagging skin of lower face caused by repeated muscle contraction from frowning, squinting and aging over the years.

Results are seen within 24-48 hours and results last up to 4-7 months.

FILLERS

Dr Millar uses hyaluronic acid fillers and skin boosters to improve deep lines volume and hydration of the skin. Dr Millar personally performs all filler injections.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the skin which absorbs water like a sponge to help volume and smoothness of the skin.

Dr Millar, as a qualified dermatologist, has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the subtleties needed to produce a younger but natural look whilst avoiding over-treatment.

Return to work after a filler injection can be the same day with minimal down time.

ACNE SCARRING

Scarring from acne is psychologically distressing. Even the mildest form of acne can lead to pits and defects in the top layer of the skin.

These scars are often bright red and difficult to camouflage.

Acne scars can be treated at any age. The mainstay of treatment is laser resurfacing. This is a safe procedure with 5-7 days downtime.

For acne resurfacing there is a Medicare rebate available.

Dr Millar uses both the Erbium laser, the Emerge diode laser, and the BBL to improve acne scars.

I.P.L/BBL (Intense Pulse Light)

I.P.L (also known as B.B.L) is not strictly a laser but is broadband light that gently absorbs brown pigment and the red pigment in blood vessels.

IPL treatments have rapid recovery, minor discomfort and improve skin laxity and collagen production.

Dr Millar uses a medical grade IPL (Sciton) which treats brown spots, mottled pigmentation, fine blood vessels and redness as well as improving smoothness and texture of the skin.

Hands, neck and arms are commonly treated for brown spots with good success.

MICRODERMABRASION

A microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure that vacuums and removes a fine layer of dead epidermal cells to smooth and rejuvenate the skin.

The aim of the treatment is to stimulate the production of new cells in the top layer of the skin. It is an excellent treatment to give the skin a smooth healthy glow.

It is incredible at cleaning out blocked pores and does appear to have some stimulation of the collagen network.

Dr Millar uses a medical grade microdermabrader combined with a potent glycolic peel.

ERBIUM LASER

Erbium laser is a resurfacing laser (2940nm wavelength) which evaporates very fine outer layer of skin, allowing new undamaged cells to form in a healthy process over 3-4 days.

Erbium laser is used to remove large brown age marks, warty keratoses, wrinkles (particularly the upper lip and under the eyes), lumps on the face and nose (rosacea) and severe acne scarring.

This laser gently heats the collagen when removing the top layers of skin thus causing tightening of underlying tissue.

EMERGE™ FRACTIONAL LASER

Emerge is a diode fractional laser (1410nm wavelength) which uses micro beams of light energy to rebuild new collagen and elastic fibres in the skin.

There is practical no damage to the top layer so there is minimal discomfort and the patient can return to work the next day.

This laser improves coarse texture, tone of the skin, large pores, fine lines, acne scarring, stretch marks and aged skin.

Dr Millar supervises all of these Emerge treatments. Best results are seen after 2-3 treatments.
