Fraxel might just be one of the most mysterious skin procedures available. If you’ve heard…
If you have tried and tried to get your skin under control but are at a complete loss as to what’s causing your blemishes or skin discolouration then you should definitely go to a dedicated skincare clinic to see what they have to say.
Most clinics offer a free – or minimal cost – first consultation which doesn’t oblige you to follow up with any procedures…it’s just a really handy way to get an expert opinion on what’s happening with your skin.
First, my public service announcement! As an ex-Territorian, at the end of summer I religiously have all my freckles and moles checked out for anything suspicious; my family is a sun-loving group, and several of them have had skin cancers removed.
If at any time a freckle or mole starts to change colour or become sore, bleed or weep you MUST get to your doctor or skin specialist immediately. If you spent a lot of your summer at the coast or just in the sun, a routine check-up of your skin when you see your regular doctor is a must!
My pick of Canberra’s skincare clinics
I’m yet to find someone that hasn’t heard of Clear Complexions – they’ve been around for ages and there’s a reason why…they’re amazing at what they do. I’ve personally had several treatments with their qualified nurses and doctors and have found them to be extremely good and compassionate. Not to mention if you ever meet Suzie Hoitink in the flesh her amazing skin is a billboard itself.
Facial Artistry is one clinic that has almost every treatment and procedure on offer – which is handy if you have several skin concerns you need addressing. They also treat skin cancer, so if you have a suspicious mole or freckle that has changed colour over time you should definitely book in an appointment.
Facial Artistry is in Manuka. Call 6255 8988 or request an appointment online.
Laser Skin Clinic
As their name suggests, Laser Skin Clinic specialises in all things laser and treats issues, like skin tags, rosacea, broken capillaries and more. They also have laser hair removal treatments if you’ve ever been interested in banishing that leg hair for good!
Laser Skin Clinic is in the city – call them on 6262 6216 or email email@example.com
Lite Nurse Clinic
Emma from Lite Nurse Clinic has been in the game for over 20 years and really knows her stuff. She’s one of the few places in town to offer micro-needling, and also has peels, LED Light Therapy and much more.
