“Getting Old Can Wait!”

On your face, as you age those youthful cheeks begin to drop, and local fat deposits shrink.  This leads to increasing laxity and depth to the lines around your mouth area and jaw line. Plus, all those happy days in the sun in your younger years will be rewarding you with increasingly uneven skin tone, poor skin texture and blotchy pigmentation patches.

For a makeover within a month, a combination of treatments can transform your face within a month:

Dermal Fillers and Botox after which you’ll see instant results, plus an active skincare serums or skin peels, and a couple of medical grade IPL or gentle laser treatments can take years off your age.

Add to that the simplest and free treatment for added beauty is to have early nights and early dinners.  To ensure you are resting (and rejuvenating) rather than digesting – and you’ll wake up to a much fresher, more youthful face in the mirror.

Simple & Effective Skin Treatments for Men

“I am so glad I am now seeing a younger man – but he’s the same one I married!”

If you saw the article in the February 2012 issue of The Australian Women’s Weekly magazine you’ll know what I mean.

More and more men every year are approaching Palm Clinic to undergo simple and effective treatments that can be done within a lunch hour.  Yes, Botox and Dermal Fillers are very popular with our male clients.  Very few men have ever looked after their skin, and most have pigmentation spots and red veins to their noses after the age of 50.  A simple medical grade IPL treatment will treat these issues so effectively that these men wonder why on earth they have left it so long to have it done.

Varicose Veins treated with Laser

What causes varicose veins?

We don't know exactly what causes varicose veins but we know that the wall of the main saphenous veins becomes weakened leading to the one way valves in the veins becoming damaged.  This in turn causes blood to fall down with gravity and pool in the veins which stretches them further. 

There appears to be a strong genetic link such that people with varicose veins commonly have a family history.  We also know that people with jobs that involve prolonged standing and straining tend to be over represented in the varicose vein population.

For many people the veins are just a visual problem but most people with varicose veins eventually get symptoms such as aching, throbbing, tired legs, cramps, restless legs, itching, heat, sweling of the feet and ankles, varicose eczema orvaricose ulcers.

Fortunately varicose veins are easily treated by non surgical techniques such as laser and injections.  Such treatments are generally covered by insurance.  Palm Clinic is an affiliated provider to Southern Cross for the non surgical management of varicose veins where medical necessity applies.

Asymmetrical breasts

Uneven breasts treated with liposuction. Asymmetrical breasts are surprisingly common.  Very few women have perfectly symmetrical breasts but some women have a large discrepancy in size which causes problems with fitting standard bras.  For many women with very asymmetrical breasts it can be embarrassing in new relationships.

The answer to uneven breasts may be as simple as breast reduction of the larger breast by liposuction or reducing the size of both breasts if they are both large but unequal in size.  This is achieved by measuring each breast before liposuction and removing the differnce from the larger breast before making further equal reduction to both breasts.

In the photo you can see that I have reduced the size of both breasts but by taking more off the left breast they are now nearly equal in size and both have lifted significantly because of the reduction in weight of the breasts.

BOTOX without the 'ouch'.

Most fans will say there's absolutely nothing bad about BOTOX. However there is one thing- the 'ouch factor'. We can't deny that it feels like a mild bee sting at each site that's injected. Until now.

We're really excited to now stock an alternative type of saline, which we mix with the BOTOX to give the same results and same safety, but without the 'ouch'. Painless BOTOX, what will they think of next?
