Winter is a gorgeous time of year. It’s the season for balmy nights by the fire, for rugging up in your exquisite Melbourne fashion and for attending to those cosmetic touch-ups you’ve been putting off. That’s right, some of our treatments are best performed over the cooler months. In this article, we explain why you should book in today for a little YOU time!

1) Laser Skin Toning For Pigmentation

During Winter, you’re less exposed to the sun’s harsh rays, which is why it’s a great time of year to tackle any pigment-related concerns. Our laser skin toning treatments work wonders for freckles, sunspots, birthmarks or melasma. Using the Pastelle Q-Switched Laser, we can effectively tone and rejuvenate the skin, remodel the skin’s collagen layer and improve overall texture.

So, how does it work? During the treatment, ultra-short bursts of energy are delivered to your skin that disrupt the pigment-containing cells within. This leads to fading and clearing of the

treatment area. Several sessions are recommended, usually one to four weeks apart, but the results last several months!

Make the most of our Winter Pigmentation Package ($1250, usually $1600): * 6 x Laser Skin Toning treatments

  • 1 x Synergie Vanish Pigmentation Serum

2) Permanent Hair Reduction

Let’s face it – nobody enjoys shaving, waxing and plucking, but there is a safe, cost-effective alternative! Now is the perfect time to start a course of laser hair reduction treatments, so that you are hair-free and carefree in time for Summer. Gorgeously smooth skin is only a hair’s breadth away!

At Southern Cosmetics, we offer two types of hair removal solutions, delivering 80-90% permanent hair reduction. The Fotona Nd: YAG Laser is great for scanning large areas such as the legs, back and chest. Usually we recommend three to five sessions, six to eight weeks apart. The second option is IPL, which stands for intense pulsed light. Six to eight sessions are recommended, six weeks apart. Trust us, you won’t look back!

3) Carbon Facial

Our NEW carbon facial is guaranteed to give you a beautiful winter glow! You can freshen up your look before a special event, and even combine it with laser toning to really brighten up your complexion. The treatment is great for improving pore size, active acne, scarring, discolouration, skin tone, skin texture, fine lines and so much more! Boost collagen and elastin and experience the amazing results for yourself!

So, how does it work? During the treatment, a layer of carbon is applied to the face via a lotion before we apply our Pastelle laser to the skin. As the laser moves across the skin, the carbon paste is gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in the pores. You may feel a light, tingling sensation, and experience a mild, temporary redness afterwards, but your skin will soon look refreshed and radiant!

4) Non-Surgical Fat Reduction

Most of us have unwanted pockets of fat we’d like to get rid of, but going under the knife is not for everyone. At Southern Cosmetics, we offer non-surgical alternatives that will blow your mind! Why not book in over Winter, so that you are looking svelte and bikini-ready come Spring?

Our revolutionary, non-invasive Cooltech machine is suitable for those with specific areas of fat they’d like to target. Using a scientifically proven cooling process called ‘cool assisted lipolysis’, the Cooltech system targets fat cells permanently, without damaging the surrounding tissue. No needles, no incisions, no downtime, no kidding! Results can be seen in as little as 15 days after the first treatment, with more dramatic results visible after eight weeks. We usually recommend one to two sessions per area, eight weeks apart.

The second option is the TightSculpt, which removes pockets of fat and tightens the skin. It’s particularly great for post-baby bellies, skin laxity under the arms or saggy skin above the knees. During this treatment, our Fotona laser heats the tissue and stimulates the metabolism of fat cells, while also stimulating collagen and improving skin laxity. Best of all, there’s no downtime, and you can achieve visible results with three to six treatments per area.
