Skin needling involve micro needling to the skin to encourage the collagen producing cells to produce more collagen.

The fractional resurfacing involves fractional delivery of RF energy causing micro-epidermal ablative injuries with wider spread dermal coagulation. This initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermal matrix while also minimizing the damage to the epidermis. a precise and controlled delivery of energy to induce a better organised skin matrix.

The end result is an improvement in the depth and texture of the stretch marks as well as the colour.

The dreaded word for most women is cellulite. It is a common and harmless condition occurring in over 90% of women over the age of 30. The condition describes the dimpling, orange peel or cottage cheese appearance of the skin. The appearance is caused by the herniation of fatty deposits within a fibrous compartment.

What causes cellulite?

  • Genetic predisposition: Some people are more prone to develop cellulite
  • Ageing: As the ageing skin becomes more relaxed, the fibrous compartment falls downwards creating a dimpling effects on the skin. In addition, the skin gets thinner which makes the dimpling more prominent. Most women will develop some degree of skin irregularities as they age especially on the thighs and buttocks.
  • Hormonal influence typically estrogen is the culprit. Some people are more susceptible to the estrogen levels in their body. Estrogen is responsible for the storage of fat. Hence the fat cells enlarge and dimple the skin.
  • Microcirculation and lymphatic drainage related to ageing, sedentary lifestyle, diet and smoking
  • Smoking: impairs the microcirculation and cause reduce oxygenation to the subcutaneous tissue causing accumulation of toxins and deterioration of the tissue.
  • Diet: Diet with an excess of sugar and fat and processed food
  • Excess weight: (Although people who are slim can have some degree of cellulite.) People who are carrying excess kilos will worsen cellulite because the fat cells within the tight compartment become bigger.
  • Excessive sun exposure: a more sun damaged skin will accelerate the ageing process and worsen the appearance of cellulite.

What treatments are available to treat cellulite?

First and foremost before we discuss about treatment for cellulite, a healthy diet and regular exercise is the first step to manage cellulite. Unfortunately some women have to put more effort than others. Once you have tried the best you can to sustain a healthy diet and exercise and if cellulite is still a problem then we can offer some solution to treat your cellulite.

We have developed cellulite treatments to help smooth out the lumps and bumps and at the same time help you to lose inches. At this point in time there is no cure for cellulite however we have develop protocols to address the 3 treat main causes that makes cellulite looks worse:

  • Skin laxity. Cellulite can worsen with age as the skin gets more saggy.
  • Poor circulation and lymphatic drainage to remove toxins in the cellulite area
  • Fat cells. Increase in weight will enlarge fat cells and caused more dimpling.

How do Dermedica help their clients get rid of cellulite?

At Dermedica, we can offer you different choices of skin tightening and body contouring devices to give you the best possible long term result. We use a combination of suctioning radiofrequency and Exilis Elite to tighten the skin and ‘melt’ the fat cells. Our various radiofrequency devices range from bipolar, monopolar and multipolar to tighten and strengthen the skin.

Who is suitable for the cellulite treatment?

To obtain the best result for cellulite treatment, one must not be overweight (ideally less than 5kg off their target weight), on a healthy diet and exercise.

Once you are within your targeted weight, you may want to touch base with us.

Do you need to take time off work?

There is no downtime associated with radio frequency treatment.

Is the cellulite treatment permanent?

Unfortunately cellulite treatment is not permanent. Due to the dynamic nature of the cellulite conditions, most of the cellulite treatments provides temporary relief and requires some maintenance treatment once or twice a year.

Is non invasive cellulite better than liposuction?

For small and medium sized fatty areas, Exilis can be a better option than liposuction as it’s more convenient and with less recovery time. It works on improving body shape via fat reduction but also promoting tighter looking skin using monopolar radio frequency, which may reduce the appearance of dimpling if the client has skin laxity.

The client can expect a tolerable warm sensation during the treatment, and with skin needling the skin is numbed so the treatment is also tolerable.

How many treatments do you need?

Most people need a series of treatments and the cost of the treatment starts from $399 per area depending on the size.

Quick facts: leg vein treatments: sclerotherapy

Also known as: spider vein treatment, leg vein treatment, vein removal, thread vein treatment, vein injections, saline vein injections and varicose vein injections.

Treatment for: superficial leg veins, spider veins, broken capillaries

If you hate putting on your bathing suit or shorts because of the unattractive spider veins on your legs then you're not alone. Many women and men suffer from these unsightly veins due to blood flowing in the wrong direction. If you thought they were just something you had to put up with then you may like to learn more about a simple procedure called sclerotherapy. It makes spider veins disappear or at least become much smaller and less visible.

Sclerotherapy - the solution for leg veins

Spider veins on the legs are small lace like blood vessels (0.5 and 1mm in size) on the surface of the skin that may be red or blue in colour. This may be due to blood circulating in the wrong direction causing a back flow. Some people feel embarrassed and goes to great length to cover up the spider veins.

Sclerotherapy or microsclerotherapy is often the first line of treatment to reduce leg veins to make you look and feel better about yourself.

What are spider veins or small varicose veins?

Spider veins or telangiectasias are small thin blood vessels that lie close to the surface of the skin and appear red or blue. These small, enlarged blood vessels may be short, unconnected lines or may be connected in a spider web or cluster pattern. Spider veins can cover a large area of skin and be quite unattractive. They are most common on the thighs, ankles and feet.

What is sclerotherapy?

The procedure involves micro injection of a TGA approved solution in to unwanted vein. The solution acts on the inner lining of the vein, causing it to collapse and shrink so that no more blood can flow through this unwanted vein.

Following the injection the leg is wrapped firmly in a compression bandage which helps the lining of the collapsed vein to stick together. Patients are advised to walk following the procedure which forces the blood to flow through other healthy blood vessels nearby.

This is a simple procedure to reveal your younger, smoother looking legs.

What causes leg veins or spider veins on your legs?

Spider veins on the legs are small lace like blood vessels (0.5 and 1mm in size) on the surface of the skin that may be red or blue in colour. Veins carry deoxygenated blood back to our heart. In our legs, blood is collected in the superficial veins, just below the skin surface, and delivered to deeper veins that run within our calf muscles. The muscular action of our calves and the one way valves inside the veins help to pump the blood against the force of gravity towards the heart. If these valves fail, blood pools in the superficial veins and enlarged. Spider veins are then further influenced by obesity, heredity, pregnancy and menopause.

How does sclerotherapy works?

A micro-injection of a medicated solution goes into the unwanted vein, causing it to close up and shrink so that no more blood can flow through this unwanted vein. Within weeks the unused vein is absorbed by the body and eventually becomes less noticeable.

Is sclerotherapy painful?

The treatment is not painful, but individual micro injections can cause a mild stinging or burning sensation. Some patients reported that the solution we use at Dermedica Perth Cosmetic Clinic is less stinging compare other solutions they have used in other clinic.

How successful is sclerotherapy?

The degree of improvement is very individual depending on the severity of the spider veins. The fading process is gradual and may take a few months.

As with all medical procedures, individual experience differ. It is important to have a thorough discussion with an experienced cosmetic doctor to assess if you are suitable for sclerotherapy.

Are there any side effects with sclerotherapy?

Below are the potential side effects associated with sclerotherapy*:

  • Brown spots. This is probably due to blood escaping at the time of injection into the vein. In most cases, the small mark disappears within 6 months to a year.
  • Bruising. This is usually very small and disappears within 1-2 weeks.
  • Small swelling/welt of the injected site. This usually disappears within a few days.
  • Development of groups of fine red blood vessels. The new appearance of previously unnoticed fine red veins can occur after sclerotherapy. These new very fine veins can occur in 2-3 days or may not be visible for several weeks following treatment. Usually the condition improves in a few months without any specific treatment.
  • Small ulcers at injection sites. Rarely a small ulcer may occur over the injected vein. The ulcer can be successfully treated but it is necessary to inform the treating doctor as soon as possible.
  • Inflammation of treated veins. Rarely the injected veins become inflamed. When this occurs it can be treated with anti-inflammatory medication.
  • Allergic reaction to the solution. Extremely rare allergic reactions may occur with any sclerosing solution. Minor reaction can be treated with anti-histamine medication.
  • Deep vein thrombosis. Very rarely, deep vein thrombosis may develop after the treatment. The chances of developing deep vein thrombosis are about 1 in every 7000 legs treated

There are 2 versions of Exilis. The table top Exilis protege and the more potent Exilis Elite. At Dermedica we offer the latest Exilis Elite technology for skin tightening and fat reduction. Only the Exilis Elite uses a combination of monopolar radio frequency (RF) energy and ultrasound simultaneously to give the dual effect of fat reduction and skin tightening

Why is Exilis Elite a treatment of choice for treating loose skin on the tummy, arms and thighs?

Only the Exilis Elite has a body handpiece tip has a built-in thermometer to minimised risk of overheating. Due to the precise and controlled ‘layered advanced cooling’, it allows a better heat and depth of penetration at which the energy is delivered. This allows the treatment to be more comfortable for the patient and better result.

Contact Dr Teh on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 92051995 for more information.

How does Exilis work?

The Exilis computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area. You will feel a warm sensation as the energy is delivered to the layers of skin.

For fat reduction, a precise controlled energy of radiofrequency, ultrasound and cooling targets deep thermal heating, initiating metabolic activity in local fat tissue and the lipolysis process is accelerated. Fat cell volume decreases and the fat layer is reduced.
