Can I get laser hair removal over my tattoos?

No, laser hair removal is not able to be performed over tattoos as this will damage the tattoo and your skin. Lasers are attracted to pigment therefore any pigment will be affected by the laser and may cause blistering and scarring. At NewSkin all tattooed areas are covered with a white tape to ensure all pigment is not visible which minimises any risk.

How can I prepare before a laser treatment?

Avoid sun exposure (including solariums and self-tanning products) 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment.

While you are exposed to the sun, ensure you apply Aspect Envirostat SPF 50 with Vitamin E continuously, every two hours. We are unable to treat recently tanned skin.

It’s important to discontinue any topical medications and active skin care products for 7 days prior to treatment.

Avoid bleaching plucking and waxing 4 to 6 weeks before your treatment.

Shave treatment areas 1 day before treatment and ensure treatment area is clean and skincare free on the day of your treatment.

Is there any downtime from skin needling?

Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.

How can I prepare for cosmetic injections?

As swelling and bruising are the most common side effects of dermal fillers, you can reduce this by discontinuing the use of vitamin E, aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications (nurofen/Advil) at least 1 week prior to treatment. Avoid strenuous exercise the day of and after treatment, as this increases blood flow and therefore could cause bruising.

What are the side affects of anti-wrinkle injections?

Possible side effects of anti-wrinkle injections are usually temporary and restricted to the treatment area. This may cause bruising, swelling, redness and headache.

What is the difference between fillers and anti-wrinkle injections?

Quite often people confuse the two as they are both injectables and are used for anti-ageing purposes. Dermal fillers essentially fill out the lines and hollowing areas, by restoring volume and replenishing moisture, by replicating the action of a naturally occurring sugar molecule. In comparison, anti-wrinkle injections contain a natural, purified protein derived from bacteria which relaxes the muscles that cause the wrinkles in the expressive areas.

How long will anti-wrinkle injections last?

Anti-wrinkle injections typically last 3 to 6 months or longer with ongoing maintenance treatments.

Will I see results immediately with anti-wrinkle injections and fillers?

With anti-wrinkle injections, expect to see initial results 1 to 2 days following treatment, with full effects visible at between 7 to 10 days. Dermal fillers, on the other hand are often immediately effective, so you will notice smoother more toned skin right away.
