Easter Downtime.

Having the luxury of taking a few days out of routine to have treatment is rare!
That’s why the Easter break is the perfect opportunity to relax from those downtime treatments.



The treatment you know you should have, delivers incredible results but you hate the social downtime.  However, there is no better way to resurface and rejuvenate aged, wrinkled and sun damaged skin.

A Fraxel treatment works on your skin in three ways

  • Resurfacing your complexion to leave new, fresh and soft skin.
  • Lightens the pigmentation on your face, neck, décolletage and even hands.
  • Acts as a stimulus for ongoing collagen and elastin production, tightening and strengthening the health of your skin.

You will need three to four days of social downtime, so the Easter long weekend is ideal.



Dermal Filler

Dermal Filler treatment can also require a few days downtime depending on individual bruising.

A common concern is a loss of fullness in the lips. As you age, bone reabsorption occurs as well as gum loss, causing the lips to turn inwards resulting in thinner lips and some fine lines.

Our highly experience and trained Nurses are skilled in producing a natural refresh look. A well placed dermal filler can give definition and a natural, age appropriate boost of volume.

The incredible results are immediately and produce a softness of the face. Learn More.

Prepare for confidence and start your skin routine to beat dryness and dehydration this winter!


Our skin often changes towards the Winter months as a cool and windy environment means there is less moisture in the air and we often are walking in and out of artificial heating. Water is lost from skin cells called Keratinocytes and essential lipids are stripped from the surface of your skin, leading to a dry and easily irritated complexion.

Feel confident in your skin and wear minimal makeup this winter! Below are the treatments that will help achieve a clear hydrated complexion that you can maintain throughout the cold season.


Clear & Brilliant.

To achieve a hydrated and plump complexion Clear and Brilliant is the answer. This effective, non-invasive treatment is designed to focus on skin tone and texture, elasticity, collagen production and minimising early signs of aging.

How does it work?

After a topical numbing gel is applied, one of our experienced Nurses will glide the Clear and anna heinrich clear and brilliantBrilliant hand piece across the surface of your skin to ensure even application. The hand piece delivers an even pattern of fractional laser to your skin targeting impurities below the surface. The healthy skin then helps turn over the tiny lesions below the surface to reveal fresh, smoother, healthier glowing skin.




A build-up of dead skin cells can make it difficult for normal moisturises to penetrate and hydrate the skin, leading to a dull complexion. HydraFacial treatments are the perfect way to cleanse, extract, hydrate and protect your skin.

How does it work?

The first phase involves uncovering a new layer of skin with a gentle exfoliation to remove dead cells and hydrafacial-treatment-faciala relaxing resurfacing. The extract and hydrate step removes any build up of dirt or grime in pores with a painless suction. While the pores are open they are then nourished with intense moisturises that quench the skin. Finally, the surface of the skin is covered with antioxidants and peptides to protect and maximise your glow.

Everything you need to know about the non-surgical facelift!

Turkey necks, sagging skin, hooded eyes, wrinkles and fine lines – finally, there’s a treatment that attacks all those pesky signs of ageing, without any needles or scalpels.

It’s called Ultraformer III, and with over 10 million successful treatments under its belt, it’s quickly landed the title of the world’s number one ultrasound lifting and tightening device. We’re more than a little excited to make this innovative treatment available to you across all our clinics, but first, here’s everything you need to know about Ultraformer III.

ultraformer banner

What is it?

Ultraformer III is an innovative ultrasound device that uses precise skin pulses to tighten, lift and reduce wrinkles, leaving you with immediate and long-lasting results and little or no down time.

How does it work?

The Ultraformer III uses micro and macro focused ultrasound (MAFU) technology to precisely target multiple deeper layers of the skin, including the SMAS layer (which is the layer that surgeons pull back when doing a face lift), stimulating new collagen and providing long-term tightening of the skin.

The Ultraformer III also has a unique ‘wrinkle cartridge’, which is a 2.0mm macro focused cartridge that can treat superficial wrinkles around the eyes and lips more effectively than other skin tightening technology.

Who is it good for?

Ultraformer III is perfect for anyone looking to lift and tighten sagging skin on their face or body. It’s also great for treating fine lines and wrinkles.

What happens during a treatment?

An Ultraformer III face and neck treatment takes approximately 60 minutes. During the treatment, the treatment area is cleaned and dried, before an ultrasound transmission gel is applied to the area. Our nurses then gradually move the Ultraformer III device over the treatment area, and let it work its magic!

Is it painful?

Overall, no, however momentary discomfort may be experienced during the treatment in certain areas while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

How many treatments are required?

One treatment per year is recommended for those with mild to moderate skin laxity. Those with more severe laxity may require a second treatment around the three-month mark and then yearly after that.

ultraformer-patient-2-1  ultraformer-patient-2-2      ultraformer-patient-4-1  ultraformer-patient-4-2

When will I see results?

Many of our clients see tightening immediately post treatment. Facial contours and fine lines show further improvement around the eight-week mark, with peak results generally experienced around 12 weeks.

What do I do post treatment?

Most people can return to their regular activities immediately following an Ultraformer III treatment, however we recommend the following for post care:

  • Wash your skin with cold or warm water (avoid hot water)
  • Avoid exposing your skin to extremes of hot and cold
  • Protect your skin with a sun block cream (minimum 30+ SPF)

You can resume your skincare and makeup regime immediately following Ultraformer III, however we recommend the use of the following to enhance the results of your treatment:

  • Vitamin B3, Vitamin C, AHA/BHA and Vitamin A products
  • A cosmeceutical strength eye cream

Your nurse will advise you on the essential actives required for your skin.

What are the possible risks and complications?

The precision of Ultraformer III makes complications rare. However, possible risks and complications, which your nurse will explain in detail to you, are:

  • Swelling: The treated area may exhibit mild swelling; however, this typically resolves agingwithin one to three days.
  • Redness: The treated area may exhibit redness; however, this typically resolves within a few hours of treatment.
  • Tenderness: The treated area may be tender to touch following your treatment. This typically resolves within two weeks of treatment.
  • Mild bruising: Mild bruising may occur occasionally as a result of damage to soft tissue blood vessels. This typically resolves within one to three weeks of treatment.
  • A mild lump: A mild lump may occur due to the strong energy emitted from the Ultraformer III. This typically resolves within two weeks of treatment.
Is there anyone this treatment doesn’t suit?

Ultraformer III is not recommended for people with:

  • Open facial wounds or lesions
  • Severe or cystic acne on the face or neck
  • Metal stents/implants in the face or neck
How much can I expect to pay?

Ultraformer III treatments start from $395 for smaller areas, such as the eyes and increase to approximately $2,150 for full face and neck treatments. Note: prices may vary depending on your individual treatment needs, contact our team today to find out more information.

Our top 3 treatments to look younger

At this time of year, many of our clients at Clear Complexions ask

“How do I make my skin look younger and fresher!?”

We age in two ways, intrinsically (our genetics – you either thank your parents or you don’t!), and extrinsically (or environmentally). External factors such as sun, medication, alcohol, smoking, stress and pollution prematurely age our skin.

Unfortunately, the tell-tale signs of ageing skin are there for the world to see, including dryness, flaking, dullness, pigmentation and lack of volume … not to mention those dreaded wrinkles.

That’s the bad news – but the good news is that slowing down the aging process is achievable.

Simple treatments, with the right consultation and expertise, can bring your skin back to your chronological age. Here are our yearly prescriptions for clients over the age of 35, to tighten, strengthen and clear the skin:


  1. Ultraformer III Skin TighteningCCMossman.24.5.2017 - 55

    This targeted ultrasound treatment tightens skin and slows laxity in areas such as the neck, jowls, cheeks and eyes. One treatment, once a year.

  3. Platelet Rich PlasmaClear and brilliant vs Fraxel

    The perfect way to stimulate collagen in thinned skin areas under the eyes, neck, décolletage and hands. A course of three treatments once a year.

At Clear Complexions, we have a unique and personalised consultation, where we use the very best RevealTM technology to diagnose your skin health, showing you exactly where you need to focus. We’ll create a personalised treatment plan to address your specific needs and goals.

Slowing the aging process and having healthy, beautiful skin requires a forward-thinking approach, and it’s never to late to start. Our goal for our clients is to see an immediate improvement, but to also look in the mirror in five years’ time and know that they look so good because they got their skin health sorted early.


Healthy skin, for a lifetime.

Most Frequently Asked Questions – Fraxel

The increasingly popular treatment that is getting attention for its incredible results – Fraxel Restore Laser.

Our highly qualified Nurses can leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.


Unsure about the process or what to know more information?
We have created a list of the most frequently asked questions our Nurses receive about Fraxel.


CC1.12.2015Part1011      Review image 1      sun-damage

What is a Fraxel?

Fraxel is a fractional laser that treats the skin by penetrating the top layers a fraction at a time via hundreds of thousands of microscopic columns to create an injury below the surface. As a result, this stimulates a repair and renewal process whereby the damaged cells are brought to the surface and shed allowing the new production of collagen and hyaluronic acid to be generated. The treatment significantly improves the quality and overall health of the skin and when put into the correct plan can create incredible results.

What skin issues can a Fraxel treat?

If you suffer from dull skin tone, irregular texture, acne scarring, pigmentation, rosacea, sun sports and general sun damage, this treatment ill make a significant different.

  • Sun damage
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven texture
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Trauma
  • Surgical scarring
Who is the treatment good for?

For most Clear Complexions Clients, a Fraxel treatment is recommended as part of their yearly prescription to combat premature ageing caused by the environment.

Fraxel is appropriate for people at any age depending on clinical indication for use, therefore a Consultation is required to ensure your skin is suitable and will have the best outcome post treatment.

Does it hurt?

This is a very common question! The first step in the process is for our Nurses to apply a strong topical analgesia (numbing cream) over the treatment area and let it take effect. The procedure itself feels like hot pinpricks on the skin which is tolerable. After the treatment you will feel as though you are sunburnt for up 2 hours and for 2 – 4 days your skin will appear red.

How many & how often?

A consultation with our Senior Nurse Consultant will provide a unique recommendation for your skin and how many treatments are required.  Everyone is different, and we have clients who have done 3 treatments 6 weeks apart and others who just do 1 treatment per year.

Our Senior Nurse Consultants will advise you of your personal plan.

What are the results you can achieve?

The results and benefits of a Fraxel can include:

  • Dramatically reduces pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and surface scarring.
  • Resurfaces the skin, shedding layers of built up dead skin cells and accelerates cellular turnover.
  • Stimulates the production of new collagen, improving strength and elasticity in the skin
  • Skin tightening continues after the treatment so that you see the best results 2 – 3 months afterwards.
  • Can be used on all areas of the body
  • Scars start to fill out after 1-2 treatments and the rejuvenate effects continue up to 6 months post a treatment.
Are there any side effects?

Impressively, with this treatment there are very few side effects and in experienced hands, the results are predictable for our Nurses. However, if preformed on an unsuitable client, post inflammatory pigmentation can occur after the treatment. Therefore, it is crucial to have skin imaging in our consultation process prior to the Fraxel treatment to ensure skin suitability.

What is the post procedure experience? Is there downtime?

A very important question as its crucial to know what to expect. You will have a healing phase of 7 days, of which the first 3-4 is the most obvious.

You will be extremely red post procedure, with a sun burnt sensation. Mild swelling starts post procedure and is at its peak the morning after, lasting only a day or so. The skin will often feel rough for up to a week however, this is a positive sign as it means all the dead and damaged cells are shedding off to leave you with fresh, vibrant and healthy skin.

Does your foundation have enough SPF?


We all hate doing it but know we have to put it on.  Sunscreen.

Otherwise known as the “arghhh” step of the skincare regime, is it really that important, or does your foundation have enough?

We age up to 80% faster than we are genetically predetermined to, usually due to our environmental exposure to UV. We were never made to sustain Australia’s harsh UV and in fact when compared with someone of a similar age in England our skin is 10 years older… no we’re not joking.

Despite what it says on the packaging, powder and liquid makeup foundation does not have level of SPF you need to stay sun safe and prevent damage. Realistically you would need a heaped teaspoon of product on your face alone to get the stated SPF coverage.
rationale superfluid

So, if you’re not discipline with your Sunscreen everyday then we have one suggestion – Superfluids. An innovation that combines skin health and sun protection. Amazing.  It’s a sunscreen that is 50+, fortified with Vitamin B3, Green and Red Tea Extracts plus Vitamins C + E, plus it’s super light to wear. All of that with only a ¼ of the chemicals found in sunscreens, oh and did we mention is comes with a tint!


How to undo Skin Damage:

Prolonged exposure to the sun can make your skin pigmented and red, blotchy and uneven. If you find yourself wanting to undo the damage, there are clinical treatments that can help.
