Spring Racing Carnival beauty tips: Our favourite race-ready treatments

Spring Racing Carnival Beauty Tips

Spring has arrived, and that means racing season is fast approaching! If you have a big event or several coming up, you’ll want your skin and body to be races-ready. Here are our top Spring Racing Carnival beauty tips and treatments to have you looking your absolute best for this year’s events.

Laser facials

To achieve a gorgeous glow for the races, you can’t go wrong with one of our laser facials. These treatments are designed to rejuvenate your skin, leaving your complexion looking fresh and fabulous.

Carbon facial: Known as the “China Doll Facial”, this treatment tightens and tones, reduces blackheads, tightens pores and helps clear surface impurities. Walk out with an instant glow!

Intensive facial: This treatment offers instant pore size reduction. Your skin will feel tighter, smoother and refreshed. It’s a 3-step process with laser toning, laser skin rejuvenation (Laser Genesis) and a carbon peel.

Deluxe laser facial: This rejuvenating facial targets imperfections and will leave your skin refreshed and radiant. The 4-step process includes laser skin rejuvenation (Laser Genesis), a carbon peel, a restorative hydrating serum (Tensage Intensive Serum 40), and red-light LED.

Current special: 20% off all laser facials in September (carbon facial, intensive carbon facial and the deluxe laser facial)


The etiquette for race attire is to avoid anything that’s too revealing. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t show off your curves, albeit in a conservative way!

If you’ve been overindulging during the winter months and you’re carrying a few extra kilos, we can help. We offer a non-surgical fat reduction treatment called Cooltech. It allows us to target unwanted pockets of fat using a cooling process called ‘cool assisted lipolysis’. Popular treatment areas include the waist, thighs, knees, flank, buttocks and chin.

Current special: Thin Down Thursdays. Get $200 off when you book in for a Cooltech treatment on a Thursday. Only $750, usually $950.

Anti-wrinkle injections

If you’re embarrassed about frown lines, crows’ feet or bunny lines around the nose, why not treat yourself to anti-wrinkle injections before the races? We’ll let you in on a little secret – they’re much more popular than you might think.

The Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS) estimated that in 2017, Australians spent $350 million on anti-wrinkle procedures. When they’re performed by doctors like us, clients look fresh-faced and revitalised, whilst still having movement and expression.

Current special: Complimentary LED treatment with all injectables treatments over $500.

Dermapen Skin Needling

If you want that flawless finish for the races, Dermapen Skin Needling may be the solution. It improves skin texture and fine lines, as well as working wonders for scars, including those caused by surgery, acne or burns.

At Southern Cosmetics, we recently upgraded to the Dermapen 4. It uses advanced automated technology to achieve exceptional client results.
