Cosmetic Medicine Update

Stephen Wassall 

Dr Wassall was recently fortunate enough to attend the annual Cosmetic Medicine Conference on the Gold Coast. This four day conference was attended by a variety of local and international doctors who specialise or have an interest in Cosmetic Surgery of non-invasive Cosmetic Medicine.

One consistent message from the conference was that more and more clients are leaning towards non-invasive methods for facial rejuvenation as opposed to the more traditional surgical procedures such as facelifts or laser resurfacing. In today's busy society, people are unable to afford the down time associated with more aggressive invasive treatments.

Procedures such as anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and lighter chemical peels are becoming increasingly popular. Lasers are now being designed to offer treatments with less down time. An example of this is the Fraxel Laser which works by shooting thousands of tiny little channels into the skin in order to stimulate collagen production.

Interestingly, new injection techniques are being used with dermal fillers, particularly around the eyes and midface. This is being utilised mainly to reduce "tear troughs" and volume losses that occur around the eyes and cheeks as we age. Dr Wassall has now received extra training in these techniques and is offering them to his clients.
