The Government funded Influenza vaccine is now in stock!

Last year was a particularly bad year for influenza with the highest levels of activity since 2009. The ‘Aussie flu’ strain was mutated meaning the vaccine was less effective than hoped for.

This year the vaccine has changed for the better, covering more strains of the flu virus. Now children from the ages of 6 months to under 5 years are being offered the flu vaccine for free as they are thought to be ‘super-spreaders’ in the community.

Along with children, the government also provide free vaccines for other medical groups; - All individuals from 6 months of age with medical conditions predisposing them to severe influenza

- Pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy

- All aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people from 15 years and over

- All individuals 65 years and older

Adults aged 65 and over will be offered a higher dose of the flu vaccination as they are most at risk of developing complications from flu.

Please note that the vaccine does not contain live flu virus and cannot cause flu.

However, some people may experience mild flu-like symptoms for up to 48 hours as their immune system responds to the vaccine. While some people may experience mild side effects such as pain, swelling and redness at the injection site, these usually resolve quickly.

Immediate allergic reactions are rare. People who are allergic to egg are no longer excluded from flu vaccines. If you experience any concerning symptoms, please seek medical help.

If you are interested in having your flu vaccine or would like to find out if you’re eligible for the government funded vaccine pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

PRP “Vampire” Facials | First Treatment - Before and After - Analysis

Join me as I demonstrate microneedling with PRP on a first time patient. This treatment uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth.

NOTES

In this video I demonstrate injecting PRP using manual injection as well as using a multi-pin injector. These techniques allow for the PRP to be injected in a more controlled way, which is why our lovely patient came out looking a lot less bloody then more famous outpatients.

Furthermore, I also insist on using anaesthetic cream as without, it will be a very painful experience.

Finally, something to note is that this treatment is complementary to other beauty treatments such as anti-wrinkle and fillers, which you will find work really well together.

PROCEDURE

To ensure patient comfort, local anaesthetic cream is applied on the face and left on for 45 minutes.

During this time, a few tablespoons of your blood will be taken in preparation for the procedure.

It is important to make sure you are well hydrated and have had something to eat before your session.

Once the blood has been collected, it is then transferred to special vials which are then placed in a centrifuge.

The centrifuge spins the blood very fast to separate the different components. Science is AMA..ZING.

Now that the platelets have been separated from the rest of the blood, they are extracted ready for injecting.

As the procedure involves a needle you will expect minimal amounts of bleeding and inflammation.

The main problem areas are targeted manually using a fine needle.

Manual injection is useful to allow for different pressures to be applied to different treatment areas.

A multi needle injector is then used to deliver the rest of the PRP to a larger surface area so that no single platelet is wasted. It’s your precious blood after all.

ANALYSIS

Looking at the before and after photos we can immediately see a dramatic reduction in the static fine lines that make up the wrinkles.

On the forehead we can see that the depth of the lines have softened with one of them completely disappearing.

Looking further down on the face, the length of the horizontal chin crease, well see for yourself, it’s halved in size.

3 days later, the inflammation had fully settled and the results were still apparent.

Fast forward 3 weeks and the results have regressed from it’s initial rejuvenation.

But looking closely we can see that there are still marked improvements from our starting point.

On the forehead we can see that the depth of the lines have reduced.

You will also notice that her nasolabial lines have also become softer in appearance, leaving less shadowing to the face.

And on the chin we can also see a reduction in the depth of the horizontal chin crease.

This makes the patient an excellent candidate for a second treatment of PRP for further rejuvenation.
