Fractional Laser delivers micro beams to penetrate into the skin. This triggers a natural healing process that forms new healthy collagen. By delivering the Laser energy in fractional “dots” surrounded by unaffected skin, rather than to the whole skin surface, healing is much more rapid than traditional Laser resurfacing.
The natural collagen production is stimulated resulting in a decrease of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring uneven pigmentation and promotes a more youthful and fresher complexion. Because not all of the skin is resurfaced each treatment, multiple treatments (3 – 6) depending on severity of problem and aggressiveness of settings, are required.
The Laser is suitable for all skin types and can be used on any area of the body. Some changes are seen immediately but full results take up to 6 months to show. The treatment may be performed gently to give a rapid recovery over just a few days – but more treatments are required to get dramatic results. Other patients want an intense treatment with longer down time (5 – 7 day) to get results with fewer treatments. The more intense treatments are more uncomfortable, require more post laser care and down time, are more expensive but require fewer treatments.

Zeltiq Coolsculpting is a non invasive procedure to remove stubborn fat from the body. It uses cooling to destroy fat cells from the subcutaneous layer with no discomfort or downtime!
At Academy Face & Body we have been doing CoolSculpting for over 5 years and getting amazing results on the body. We have a custom built Coolroom for our treatments and we were the first Practice in Perth to have 2 CoolSculpting machines, which means we can either treat 2 patients at the same time or use 2 machines on the one patient, to cut treatment time in ½! Coolsculpting has been incredibly popular for areas such as the abdomen, thighs and love handles and with the addition of the Zimmer Z-wave clients are seeing results quicker then ever before. The Zimmer Z-wave uses shock waves to speed up the process of breaking down the crystalized fat cells – it feels like a deep massage! With such great results on the body clients also wanted other areas like the dreaded ‘double chin’ done. In 2015 the CoolMini hand piece was introduced to Australia. This specially designed hand piece now allows us to treat the double chin as well as some other small areas like ‘bra fat’ and ‘nobbly knee’.
The CoolMini treatment for the double chin takes 45 minutes; patients are comfortably lying down on a cushy bed in one of our Coolroom. The suction gently draws the tissue into the applicator where it is then cooled and the fat cells are crystallized. The body then naturally processes the fat cells and eliminates them for good! Patients see their results 12 weeks after their 2nd application.

Dermal Skin Needling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to support the skins regeneration of collagen and elastin through a natural healing process.
Ultra fine, medical grade stainless steel needles are passed vertically across the skin creating multiple surface skin channels. The tiny skin channels (wounds) allow for increased product penetration as well as activating the skins natural healing response. This treatment is designed to support skin regeneration to help improve skin texture, plump and firm giving an overall more youthful and glowing appearance.
This treatment can also support the healing of acne scars and improve the appearance of stretch marks and surgical scars.
As you can see in the video above, there is no discomfort and very minimal downtime. Our Dermal Therapist Team offer complimentary consultations should you wish to learn more about how Dermal Skin Needling could help your skin.
Dr Oates will auction off his rare 1959 Facel Vega HK500 for charity.
Having owned it for 20 years, Dr Oates has completely restored the coupe and is expecting to fetch a high price ($200,000 – $250,000). Dr Oates will also be matching the proceeds dollar for dollar for a potential $500,000 donation to The Hunger Project!
What attracted us to The Hunger Project is that they don’t give ‘things’ to anyone. It is about empowering the most destitute and hopeless to believe they can be self-reliant. The Epicentres that the Hunger Project facilitate in Africa are a different way of providing assistance. It is about motivating a whole community to change and providing them to tools to do so.
Stay tuned to see how much this rare car goes for at auction…
