SKIN ASSESSMENT PROCESS

Your skin assessment will be performed by one of our Skin Therapists who are trained in the science of skin care. We understand that for many clients — particularly those with long-term skin conditions — this can be a vulnerable time, so we aim to provide a professional but relaxed consultation.

1. DISCUSSION AND HISTORY

Your practitioner will begin by asking you about your specific skin concerns as well as your goals and expectations from any treatments. They will then ask a series of questions about your relevant medical history, current medications, your lifestyle, any past skin conditions or skin treatments and your current skin care routine. It is beneficial to bring any skin care products you’re using to your consultation.

You’ll be given information on the cause of your concerns and what treatment options may be available. You’re encouraged to use this opportunity to ask any questions you have about skin care or specific treatment modalities.

2. Non-invasive Examination

The examination process will vary depending on the specific concerns you’re presenting with. In most cases, your face will be gently cleansed to remove makeup and debris, allowing for a more thorough examination of the health and condition of the skin. Photos may be taken to document your treatment progress.

In regard to Cosmetic Injectable Consultations, our nurses are trained to identify any severe or serious skin conditions that require specialist intervention and will refer you to your GP or our Dermatologist where appropriate.

3. PLAN

Your practitioner will discuss a personally tailored skin care plan that includes a timeline and cost estimate of recommended in-clinic treatments and home skin care products. You will be given specific information about treatments relevant to addressing your concerns, as well as any suitable alternatives. In some cases, we may refer you to another provider (e.g. Plastic Surgeon) if we feel that would be the best option for you.

There is no obligation to proceed with any treatments or purchase products at this stage and you’re welcome to take home the information received to consider your options before booking your treatments.

ASSESSMENT COST

Free

Your initial consultation is completely free, with no obligation. We’re here to help you make an informed decision and feel safe to ask any questions you need. We’ll never judge you, force sales or ask you to commit to anything you’re not ready for.

observ skin imaging

The Observ is a powerful skin analysis device, that uses specialised lighting and camera technology to deep dive into your skin concerns at a cellular level. The Observ Skin Analysis will scan your skin and generate various images that allows us to examine:

  • Wrinkles & fine lines – including ones you can’t see yet
  • Sebum (oil) content of your skin -which can contribute to acne and blemishes
  • Pigmentation – closely assess freckles, sunspots and age spots
  • Texture & pore size – determines if enlarged pores are a problem for your skin.
  • Moisture content of your skin – skin dehydration is typically a major cause of ageing skin
  • Loss of skin firmness & elasticity – is your skin ageing well, or losing elasticity at a rapid rate?
  • Your overall skin tone & skin health

The images are generated in only a few seconds and your dermal therapist will explain what can be seen and provide personalised skin advice to address your concerns.

observ FAQ

The Observ is an advanced medical imaging diagnostic camera which takes a series of photographs (on an iPad) using specific light modes which allows your Dermal Therapist to view and analyse your skin health through all the underlying skin layers; from the surface to the deepest layer.

Our Dermal Therapist will then advise you on the best treatments targeted for these specific areas.​ The Facial Analysis is completely safe and pain-free procedure and is suitable for just about everyone.

During Treatment
During the treatment, a light will flash at the beginning of each photo. The Observ analysis takes less than a minute to complete.

Important
If you have light triggered epilepsy, are sensitive to flashing light, experience claustrophobia or have any cuts, abrasions or cold sores please let your dermal technician know and we will assist accordingly.

Our dermal therapists utilise the information from the Observ to provide well-informed recommendations. They will create a personalised skin treatment and skincare plan tailored specifically to address your unique concerns.

As you progress through your treatment journey, we will keep track of your results by comparing before and after images following each session. Often, we fail to notice the true extent of the progress made when we see our skin every day.

By investing in the right products and targeted skin treatments today, you can proactively prevent future imperfections.

China Doll Facial

Also known as a Carbon Laser Facial, this gentle procedure is safe on all skin types. It is a great way to get a quick skin refresher without the longer downtime associated with other laser procedures. Carbon Facial treatment combines Q switch laser technology with a special carbon cream applied to the facial region. The laser and carbon cream work in synergy to reduce skin imperfections such as enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, acne, and expression lines, while also purifying and toning skin for an instantly radiant complexion. 

Includes LED Phototherapy and customised masque.

China Doll Facial faq's

We’ll apply a layer of liquid carbon to your face (or body), allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores and let it dry. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants and oil.

We’ll then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. Because the laser light is super attracted to carbon particles, its energy and heat is absorbed by the carbon paste destroying the particles in your pores.

Light from the laser is attracted to the carbon. The carbon absorbs the light energy. The reaction causes a mini explosion. The explosion pushes the energy, in the form of heat, deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing anew. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells. Sounds kind of scary, with all the explosions and vaporizing, but don’t worry. There’s very little discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.

For those who want to combat the signs of ageing, Carbon Laser Facials can rejuvenate your skin by:

  • Reducing the signs of premature ageing
  • Improving skin integrity and radiance
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increasing skin tone and texture
  • Reducing oily skin
  • Fading pigmentation

Your skin will feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed. Better still, there’s zero downtime! You can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly red but this should disappear within a few hours. We recommend you use SPF 30+ and avoid abrasive exfoliates or other invasive skin treatments for a few days.

The treatment is gentle and non-invasive. You’ll probably hear a small pulse as we target the carbon particles in your pores with the laser. Our clients describe the feeling as warm or prickly but not painful.

EPIDERMAL BLADING

Epidermal blading, or “epiblading”, is an innovative exfoliation technique that employs a special surgical instrument to gently remove the topmost layer of skin and vellus (fine) hair of the face. This results in a very deep and even exfoliation, without the use of chemical peeling agents.

This means that the fresher, younger skin will be revealed and allows for better penetration of active skin care ingredients (such as vitamin C) deeper in to the skin.

EPIBLADING FAQ

Epiblading is a relatively straight-forward treatment involving the use of a sterile, single use surgical instrument being gently used across the face to “shave” the upper-most layer of dead cell skins. This allows fresher, younger skin cells to be revealed (which gives that youthful glow) and removes any of the vellus (fine) hairs on the face.

After treatment, the smooth texture of your skin allows for very even makeup application, so it’s the perfect treatment pre-event.

An additional benefit of epiblading (or any skin exfoliation treatment) is that it allows for better penetration of skin care ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin, enhancing their effects.

Absolutely not, your hair will grow back to it’s original ‘pre-blading’ condition after 4-6 weeks.

Epidermal Blading is safe for all skin types and is perfect for those wanting a general refresh of the skin or a no-downtime treatment right before an event.

Those with fine vellus (light) hairs that can’t be treated with laser will love the treatment – the hairs do not grow back more coarse or darker than they were before the treatment!

Results are instant. You’ll notice a refreshing glow in your skin right after your epiblading treatment. The fine hairs on your face are immediately removed in the treatment, along with the upper-most layer of old, dead skin cells.

As with all skin rejuvenation treatments, the results are only sustained by a series of treatments.

To really boost that glow and treat your skin, we also highly recommend an LED phototherapy session as an add-on to epiblading.

Epiblading is generally a very safe treatment, with the main risks being bleeding or scratches. The blades used for this procedure are single-use and our clinic adheres to strict medical sterilisation protocols. With proper post-treatment care, the risk of infection or other complications is very minimal.

Anti-wrinkle injections are not an exact science and results may vary between patients and treatments.

Medical Skin Peels

Medical Skin Peels are chemical exfoliators used to address skin imperfections by removing damaged skin, stimulating skin cell turnover and increasing collagen production. They are suitable for treating a wide range of skin concerns. Using medical-grade products, we will tailor the treatment to directly target your concerns and work specifically with your unique skin.

Medical Skin Peels FAQ

Skin peels or Chemical Peels, are a chemical exfoliation procedure used to address skin imperfections by removing damaged skin, stimulating skin cell turnover and increasing collagen production.

This is quick and effective procedure with minimal discomfort. Down time depends on the type and strength of the peel.

Superficial skin peels are well tolerated and do not require pain medication or anaesthetic. Medium-depth peels may require painkillers or anaesthetic prior to treatment.

The procedure begins with the skin being cleansed and prepped to remove impurities and oil from the surface of the skin. The chemical peel solution is then applied to the targeted area(s) and left to work on the skin for 3 – 10 minutes (depending on the skin condition, peel type, discomfort experienced). The peel may be done in either a single or multiple layers.

A mild stinging sensation will be experienced immediately after the application of the peel. This is normal and can be managed by using a fan to blow cool air on the treatment area. Your therapist will encourage you to communicate with them if you become excessively uncomfortable and the peel can be neutralised immediately if there are any concerning reactions.

After the solution has been left for the determined period of time, the therapist will neutralise and remove the peel. The procedure is completed by applying a soothing moisturising cream and sunscreen to the treated area.

You will notice more even colour, tone and texture of your skin after the healing process (3 – 10 days). As skin cell turnover occurs regularly, the results of a chemical peel are temporary and a series of treatments is recommended for longer lasting and continuous results.

Immediately post-treatment, the face will appear red and feel slightly warm, similar to a mild sunburn. You can apply a tinted moisturiser or high quality camouflage makeup to cover the redness usually several hours after the treatment (or as directed by your therapist).

Over the next few days post-treatment, your skin will feel tight and may darken. The skin will then gradually peel to reveal fresher, newer skin with a more even colour, tone and texture.

The peeling skin should not be picked at, as this can increase the risk of scarring and delay the healing process. The redness and peeling effects generally last 3 – 5 days post-treatment with a superficial peel and up to 14 days with a medium depth peel. It is important to follow any post-treatment care instructions given to you by your therapist.

If you have any concerns before or after your treatment, please contact the clinic to discuss with your therapist.

When administered by an experienced and qualified therapist in an appropriate clinical setting, the chances of serious complications occurring with chemical peels are very minimal. However, as with all advanced skin treatments, there are risks and potential side effects to be aware of including: Post-Inflammatory hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, milia and comedone breakouts, scarring, infection, persistent erythema and toxicity.

MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion is a mild mechanical exfoliation technique used to remove the superficial layer of old skin cells. This improves the appearance of the skin and creates better permeability of the skin – allowing topical products to penetrate deeper in to the skin.

This is a gentle procedure with no down time. It is recommended for general skin health and maintenance between more targeted treatments.

MICRODERMABRASION FAQ

Microdermabrasion is a mild abrasive treatment that uses mechanical exfoliation to remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells, improving the appearance and permeability of the skin.

A microdermabrasion treatments involves a process of tiny, sterilised crystals being passed over the epidermis (upper layers of the skin) for the purpose of exfoliating dormant and dead cells. A vacuum suction nozzle works to extract the excess abraded skin cells, debris and excess crystals while also promoting lymphatic drainage.

This is a quick procedure with no down time, so it is well suited to being done in a lunchtime break and makes a perfect treatment to maintain the skin in between more intensive treatments.

At North Coast Medispa we use both diamond and crystal Microdermabrasion systems.

Our Deluxe Microdermabrasion takes the process several steps further by combining a double Cleanse, Microdermabrasion, Skin Rejuvenation Mask, Vitamin Infusion, Moisturiser and Sunscreen – it’s the ultimate luxury pick-me-up for your skin.

Suitable candidates for this treatment include those with sun damaged, dull or acne-prone skin, fine superficial scarring, rhytides, enlarged pores, comedones (white/black heads) and/or milia.

As this procedure only affects the epidermis (the superficial layer of skin comprised of dead skin cells), this is a very safe procedure for all skin types.

Microdermabrasion results are immediate. The skin will be noticeably smoother with a refreshing glow and radiance after just one Microdermabrasion treatment.

As skin cell turnover is a constant process, results are temporary and it is recommended to do a series of treatments at regular intervals to maintain and improve results.

Microdermabrasion treatments require no downtime. You can return to your normal routine and apply cosmetics directly after treatment.

You may experience a slight tightness and/or minor redness at the treatment location (similar to a windburn) immediately post treatment. There may also be some mild flaking or peeling over the next couple of days.

It is important to protect your skin from the sun, keep the skin hydrated with a quality moisturiser and follow the post-treatment care instructions provided to you in order to maintain your results.

RF ablative resurfacing faq's

Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments work with tiny pins that safely deliver heat (via NanoFractional Radio Frequency) through the skin’s surface.

This creates tiny micro-dermal wounds, which the body naturally heals on its own. This process repairs signs of skin damage visible on the surface of the skin. Since the wounds are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than traditional CO2 lasers, while still producing incredibly visible results.

Avoid applying lotions, creams, perfumes, powders, or makeup to the treatment area prior to each treatment. Shaving may be necessary if a patient has excessive hair in the treatment area. If possible, patients should have their complete medical history available in case it is required by the treatment provider.

Avoid applying lotions, makeup, water, or anything else to the treatment area for 24 hours post-treatment. Hot baths or showers, massages, rigorous exercise, and any activity requiring direct skin contact or causing excessive perspiration in the treatment area should be avoided for two days post-procedure.

Avoid tanning before and after each treatment session, and wear sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 between treatments.

To ensure that you are comfortable during the procedure, a topical anaesthetic will be applied which takes around twenty minutes to take affect. We will then use a special applicator hand piece to deliver the radio frequency (RF) bursts to the treatment area, which takes about fifteen to twenty minutes, depending on the total area treated. You’ll feel a slight warmth and pinprick sensations, but the pain should be minimal with the topical anaesthesia. Most patients handle the treatment very well, and any discomfort is short in duration.

 

Immediately following the procedure it is normal to experience a feeling of sunburn on the skin, redness, heat and some swelling may occur for 1-3 days. Skin dryness and flaking or “sandpaper“ feel may occur for the following few days depending on the type of treatment performed.

Most patients see the best results after three or four treatments, each spaced four weeks apart. However, the exact number of treatments depends on the individual and the treatment area.

We will be able to outline the best treatment plan based on each patient’s individual needs.

How long results are maintained also varies from patient to patient and is dependent on severity of the skin and post-procedure skin care. Results will continue to improve following the final treatment, though one touch-up session is recommended approximately every six months, depending on the skin’s response and the area being treated.

RADIO FREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING

Radio Frequency treatments rejuvenate the appearance of skin by safely and comfortably heating the tissue under the skin’s surface. This triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin, the key building blocks of healthy, youthful skin. The result is effortlessly tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin.

Using the Venus Viva™, which is one of the most sophisticated radio frequency devices on the market.

This can be a treatment used on its own or as a complement to the Radio Frequency Ablative Resurfacing treatment for enhanced results.

SKIN NEEDLING FAQ

Skin needling is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment for skin restoration that requires minimal downtime.

The penetration of sterile micro-needles creates controlled damage to the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response which increases collagen and elastin production to restore the skin.

Prior to the skin needling treatment, a numbing cream will be applied at the treatment area to minimise any discomfort. The treatment itself involves a needling device being passed over the skin, with the sterilised single use needle tip vertically penetrating the skin at selected depths (between 0.5mm and 2.5mm).

There will be localised bleeding at the treatment site, however this is usually minimal and there is generally very little discomfort during the procedure.

Dermapen treatments may be enhanced by applying potent active ingredients (such as Vitamin C or Hyaluronic Acid) which will penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin or in combination with Platelet Rich Plasma.

Skin needling is an effective treatment that is particularly suited to treating acne scarring as well as addressing the early signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone and skin texture.

This is a suitable treatment for all skin types, including darker skin that is prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation with other treatment modalities.

This treatment is not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing, have recently had cosmetic injections or who have active skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or rosacea.

Visible results will generally occur 4 – 6 weeks post-treatment. One treatment is enough for a noticeable improvement however the best results will be achieved with a series of 3 – 6 treatments spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart.

To be suitable candidate for anti wrinkle injections, you will be at least 18 years old, in good overall health and have realistic expectations of the treatment.

You may not be suitable for treatment if you have any disease that affects your nerves or muscles, have a skin infection in the treatment area, are currently pregnant, nursing or planning to become pregnant.

Immediately after a skin needling session, post-treatment products will be applied to the treated area to protect the skin from infection and to aid with the healing process.
After the treatment, you will experience moderate erythema (redness and inflammation), similar to having a moderate sunburn.

You may also notice skin tightness, stinging, itching, flaking or hives as well as sensitivity in the treatment area. These symptoms will usually subside over 2 – 5 days as the skin heals.

It is important to follow any after care instructions provided by the therapist to ensure the best results and to minimise the risk of infection or other complications.
