Dr Le and the experienced nursing team at Port Macquarie Dermatology are passionate about skin rejuvenation and perform a wide range of procedures to enhance the appearance and texture of your skin. Treatments are scientifically based and individualised to your needs and expectations.
Medical Facial Peels
Skin peels using a variety of naturally occurring fruit and milk acids can be used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. Superficial peels are used to gently exfoliate the upper most layers to reveal smoother and brighter skin. Medium depth peels can be used to treat solar keratoses, sun damage and fine lines or wrinkles. Peels can also be used in the treatment of acne, skin congestion, rosacea and pigmentation. A series of skin peels are recommended and occur every 2-4 weeks.
Botulinum toxin injections can be performed to soften or temporarily eliminate facial lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother and more youthful skin. This can be used to smooth frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crows feet or lines around the mouth. Injections can be combined with dermal fillers or laser therapies for optimal results.
With time, volume loss can occur in the face due to diminished collagen and its building blocks, hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers are a synthetic hyaluronic acid, which can replace this volume loss and support the skin, resulting in improvements in fixed facial lines, sagging jaw or cheek and lip definition. There are a wide range of dermal fillers, with variable thickness or viscosity, which can be tailored to your needs. Dermal fillers can be part of treatment plan which also includes botulinum toxin injections or physical procedures such as laser.
Deoxycholic acid injections
Synthesised deoxycholic acid is an injectable treatment to improve the appearance of a double chin or submental fullness. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance which causes destruction of fat cells. Treatments are individualised to your anatomy and needs. A series of at least two sessions are required to achieve optimal results.
Low level light therapy with the HEALITE II is used therapeutically to target different layers of the skin depending on the wavelength (colour) used. It is a painless treatment which improves healing, stimulates collagen for skin rejuvenation and decreases active acne.
PMD Combination Treatments
After consultation, the team at Port Macquarie Dermatology will devise a comprehensive treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.
This may involve combination therapies with injectables, facial peels, LED, Laser, radiofrequency and PRP (platelet rich plasma).
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is an extract of your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors and active proteins which are essential for tissue regeneration and healing.
When injected into the skin, it initiates a stem cell response, resulting in new collagen formation, repair & regeneration. This results in a reduction in fine lines, appearance of scars & visible signs of sundamage & ageing. There is improved skin tone, elasticity & texture
