5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser
I received CO2 laser for treatment of fine lines under the eyes and acne scars. I have seen quite a dramatic improvement and I am so incredibly happy with the result! Dr Shobhan Manoharan upheld the highest-standard of professionalism and was patient, kind and helpful throughout the process (and during recovery). He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable during the procedure....
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Manoharan. He answered any and all my questions with patience, understanding and thoroughness. He is not only friendly but very professional, and gives you a great sense of confidence in the treatment(s) advised. I dod not hesitate therefore to proceed and have been 100% happy with my results. Excellent before and aftercare also. I also found his nurse...
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
Shobhan Manoharan was excellent. I wasn't happy with the original outcome however, Dr Manoharan's attention to detail & service was exceptional. Dr Manoharan continued to work with me until I was happy with the result & I will continue to seek Dr Manoharan's advice. The experience was lengthy but worth it over all. My skin is now feeling amazing. Thanks to Dr Manoharan.
5 out of 5 stars Ear Surgery
Thanks to the professionalism of Dr Manoharan on a routine skin check, what I thought was merely a wart growth on the ear and a skin blemish on the forehead turned out to be dangerous Squamous Cell Carcinomas, both were removed on my next visit only about a week later. I thought this would be a disfiguring operation on the ear, as it required a "wedge" piece to be removed, days later I removed...
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
I have been going to Westside Dermatology for my annual skin checks for a few years now. I have always seen Dr Shobhan Manoharan and he has been brilliant. I cannot speak highly enough of his service and also his colleague Emily Hyde (Laser Nurse Specialist). They work together as a team perfectly, and I always have complete faith that they will let me know anything that needs doing, and...
5 out of 5 stars Laser Treatment
45 years old, and my age was really starting to show.... I came to see Dr Manoharan to see what he could do. I didn't want anything too much, or that made me look overdone - I still wanted to look like me. He gave me a combination of laser and botox which has made such a difference straight away! I look 10 years younger already! I am very happy with the results and with Dr Manoharan's...
5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment
I came to see Dr Manoharan to see if he could do something about the scarring on my face. It is so visible and has made me very self conscious for a long time now. I couldn't believe what a difference his combination laser treatments have made! People say 'I wish I had done this a long time ago' but it really is true for me. I could not have expected such excellent results. Very...
I have had subcision to loosen some of the tethered scars and TCA cross to rebuild some of the holes. Many of my friends have commented that it has made some difference. I am not convinced it is very much difference, but am happy with the process so far. Next in the process is the CO2, erbium laser followed by Recell. I don't know how much to expect - I do know not to expect miracles but I am...
5 out of 5 stars Laser Surgery
Living in Qld Australia sunspots are a constant threat. I've had some checked and removed before and the doctors always left these big holes in my skin. When one showed up on my face I was really worried about what the result would be. I went to see Dr Manoharan who specialises in laser surgery and I couldn't be happier with the results!
5 out of 5 stars Laser Hair Removal
Oh my gosh I cannot rave enough about this! Seriously if you are remotely considering it give it a go. I started with getting my bikini line done, and have then done underarms, full legs and now arms. I have fair skin and dark body hair and have always been so conscious of it. I wish I knew about this sooner. Whilst getting my annual skin check I noticed a flyer for laser hair removal...

As a laser and aesthetic dermatologist, I am introduced to and am involved in trialling new products and devices on a weekly basis. So it takes a special product to get me excited. Think MiraDry, Fraxel, Infini/Intensif, effective PRP. Well, this weekend, I was amongst a small group of specialists invited to the launch of Belkyra, from the Allergan stable of injectable agents. AND I AM EXTREMELY EXCITED! This is not another muscle relaxant trotted out to rival Botox...
