50% AHA Glycolic Peel

I'm a 39 year old, mum of two toddlers, and I've been doing high strength peels on myself for about 15 years. Growing up, my mum would rub apple skin or lemon peel on her face, and I'd think she was nuts, but she had amazing skin. Store bought peels essentially work the same way, just in higher strengths. When I first started the peels I had major skin shedding - from years of not washing my... READ MORE

Keloid Scars - Treatment That Has Worked for Me - Sydney, AU

I recently had an excision of a keloid scar, that had developed after i had a bunch biopsy of a tiny mole on my right upper arm, then had it removed again via excision after the mole reappeared. I had the biopsy of my mole (turned out to be benign) approximately 4 months after i gave birth. It returned, and so a couple months later, i had my local doctor cut it out. Within 3 months after that,... READ MORE

Worked, Somewhat - Sydney, Australia

Immediately post procedure, it plumped up my skin (due to the trauma of the pin pricks) and so yes, my acne scarring looked "diminished". I think however, had i gone to a plastic surgeon/cosmetic surgeon, he would have used a longer pin, therefore penetrating further, and causing more of an effect. I will have this done again, but only with a doctor, not a beauty salon(where its... READ MORE

Ultherapy - 2 Months on - Sydney, Australia

After a tough year, i felt like i had aged 5 years. I felt as if my cheeks had become sunken, i looked a bit drawn (as evidenced by sagging of acne scarring!) and i wanted to get rid of the sadness in my eyes by refreshing the rest of my face. I had ultherapy to my cheeks, lower face area and neck. So far, just over 2 months on, it has had no effect at all on my neck (i am 34 years, and... READ MORE

Painful! - Sydney, AU

I had this treatment done approximately 4 months ago. Never again. Although i love the result (my teeth are indeed a few shades lighter), the post treatment pain was absolutely excrutiating. Actually, the pain started mid way through the procedure, but the dentist kept leaving me alone in a room (about an hour in total, so i couldn't voice my concern to him). Had i been warned that...

Botox - Love It! - Headaches Gone! - Sydney, AU

I have had botox regularly since 2007. Initially for the excruciating migraines i used to suffer. This stuff really does work for me in getting rid of regular, painful migraines that id suffered for years. From a cosmetic point of view. I am 34 years of age, but often get mistaken for someone who looks 23-25 years of age. I even fooled a toughened detective! I attribute this to not only a... READ MORE

6 Days Post Under Eye Fraxel:reStore - Sydney, AU

I'm currently 6 days post my first Fraxel procedure. It was the Fraxel reStore laser. I should preface this review by stating that i am from an Eastern European background - very fair skinned, dark hair and eyes. So my review is aimed more to people with that colouring, as different cultures and different skin tones may respond differently. I must say that I have mixed feelings about... READ MORE

Questions from MissSydney

Should I Apply Anti Inflammatory Ointment to Scars Following Mole Removal to Prevent Scarring?

I have in the past week had 20 moles removed from various parts of my body (mainly lower arms, legs and a few from my back). I still have stitches in situ. Once removed, should... READ MORE

Best ways to treat post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation? Even a 50% reduction would be great.

18 months ago i had several moles surgically removed from each forearm - for no reason, other than "cosmetic" (oh the irony!). I am now left with red marks, instead of faded... READ MORE

Is 38 y.o too young to have a neck lift?

Almond oil is good for skin firming. I had twins, gained and lost 35kg+ and my skin is actually quite firm despite nearing middle age and me being Caucasian and living in the harsh Australian sun. I use it on my d├ęcolletage ... READ COMMENT

It depends. On whether you've had any peels or microdermabrasions before and the strength of the peel. In most cases, there's no down time. You can even put on make up if having it done in your lunch hour. However, when I first started... READ COMMENT

With nose surgery, its very difficult to guarantee that what you end up with, is what you wanted. I had rhinoplasty when i was 18 y.o. The ENT doctor told me he would fix my broken nose, and the deviated septum, PLUS fix it cosmetically... READ COMMENT

Surgery absolutely worked for me, but make sure you go with plastic surgeon. I was also hyper vigilant about applying rose hip oil and hirudoid cream. If its only the two you have, id also recommend silicone sheets, and vit d... READ COMMENT

Over a year and a half later, I have had no issues with keloiding on the arm the plastic surgeon worked on. Nor on my back. However, I pushed my luck by having some more moles removed from my arm, by a general dr who used removable... READ COMMENT
