  • Laser and light based treatments and Vampire start to give results within 3 weeks.

Dysport® is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. Don't let anyone say you look grumpy! This treatment takes only a few minutes.

Dermal fillers give men and women an immediate result for under eye hollows, lifting of the face, a more prominent cheek bone, a more defined jawline and a fresher more youthful look.

Dermal fillers also restore lip volume, and define the lips as well as improving skin hydration and the lines around the mouth. Dermal fillers are the second most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. A Lunchtime Facelift takes 30 minutes on average.

We conduct our treatments to minimize discomfort and bruising. Should there be any bruising, we use our gentle Laser Genesis® to remove the bruises.

And see below - you can have a treatment soon and start to see results in 8 weeks with ultimate results in 12 weeks!

Please book now to avoid disappointment as we are very busy leading up to Xmas. Our nurses can give you the best advice on how to proceed.


First in all Australasia - truSculpt 3D. The forever fat destroyer!

Skinfresh is the first clinic in Australasia to bring you this revolutionary, safe and effective fat reduction technology. There is no pain or down time. Each standard area takes 30 minutes to treat, so it's fast too!

Dr Frances Pitsilis has been following the research into fat reduction technologies for 10 years. She was not happy with the available technologies until now.

When the Trusculpt 3D machine became available, Dr Pitsilis pounced! She is of the opinion that the research and technology has matured and that this is the best technology for painless, quick fat reduction anywhere.

Trusculpt 3D is able to reduce the fat layer by 18-24% - permanently.

Trusculpt 3D is not a treatment for obesity. The best way to check is for you to make a no-obligation appointment to see one of our nurses.

All skin types and colours can be safely treated.

Standard areas are - abdomen, flanks, arm fat (bingo wings), bra fat, inner thighs, above knees - each takes 30 minutes to treat. So abdomen and flanks take an hour.

We also do double chins (4 minutes only).

Typically, body results are seen after one treatment. Some patients may choose to have more treatments after that. You can have several areas treated in one session. Have more than one area treated in the same session and the price reduces.

The treatment involves gently gliding the handpiece over the area to be treated. It warms up and many comment that it feels like a hot stone massage.

There is no down time afterwards. You can go straight back to normal activities! You may feel local heat and slight tenderness to touch afterwards which will resolve in a few hours.

Results start to be seen at 6-8 weeks as the body's lymphatics dispose of the dead fat cells. Improvement will be at maximum at 12 weeks. You can view the website here

You can find out whether this treatment is suitable for you by booking a no-obligation consultation with one of our nurses. Phone 09 486 0030 or email


Questions to ask when considering a dermal filler treatment.

Dermal fillers are becoming more affordable and available as one of the most popular cosmetic treatments. A dermal filler treatment is generally safe in our medical environment and is performed as a walk in - walk out treatment. When deciding whether to have a dermal filler, several questions should come to mind.

See our video here.

What is a dermal filler?

A product that is packaged in a syringe that is used to inject into the skin to lift wrinkles or under the skin to give volume to the face. The most popular ones consist of hyaluronic acid which is a sugar found in all animals.

What is a dermal filler used for?

Restore lip shape and volume, treat lines around the mouth and lift up the cheeks. Improve under eye hollows and help the appearance of scars. Some specifically hydrate the skin of the face, neck and hands.

Is this treatment right for me?

Consult with an experienced doctor or the doctors nurse in a medical clinic. Time should be spent over a thorough medical, medication and allergy history. Some situations make the procedure riskier.

You must be given informed consent. What are your other treatment options including no treatment? What can go wrong, how serious it is, and what can be done about it? After all, it is not strictly necessary for you to undergo this treatment for your health, so you need to know all about it.

How effective is the treatment and how long does it last?

Between 6-18 months, especially if a top up treatment is performed at around 6-9 months.

How skilled and experienced is the doctor or nurse who will inject my face?

You should always ask this question.

What can go wrong?

It's generally very safe. Rarely, allergy, infection or other serious side effects can occur - these require specific timely expert treatment in a medical clinic.

What happens if something does go wrong?

Are you in a medical clinic with emergency equipment and drugs? Is it being performed by a doctor, or a nurse with a doctor immediately available? Are you given a 24 hour phone number to call if problems?

Are there any long term risks?

Usually not, if done safely, in a well equipped medical clinic by a doctor or with a nurse and the doctor available.
