Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses a photosensitiser, light and molecular oxygen to selectively kill cells. This new treatment has been used with a confluent light source to treat certain non-melanoma skin cancers and precancerous lesions and is becoming increasingly popular in Australia. Intense pulsed light (IPL) has been used in the last 8 years to treat sun damaged skin and signs of photoageing as a non-ablative skin rejuvenation modality. Photodynamic photorejuvenation (PDPR) is a new form of treatment that combines the benefit of both treatments to give a superior therapeutic and cosmetic effect. Seit, S.

As we age, everybody gets loosening of the skin. What if there was a way to address skin laxity without going under the knife?
Facial concerns such as jowls, deepening marionette lines, sagging eyelids, loose neck folds, fine lines and wrinkles can be treated using the latest cosmetic medical technology.
Ultraformer therapy is a completely non-invasive face and neck lifting treatment. It uses micro-macro focused ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin without downtime. Safe, quick and easy with high patient satisfaction and minimal discomfort.
Treatments can be done during your lunchbreak and being non-invasive, patients can return to daily activities immediately after treatment. Results will vary but patients typically only need one to two treatments spaced 6 months apart. You will notice some initial lifting and tightening which improves over the following 2 to 3 months. Contact the SCCC for more information on the optimal treatment for your skin concerns.

An involuntary loss of urine is quite common in women, as is a loss of friction and sexual satisfaction.
Childbirth, ageing, even weight gain can all overstretch and thin the vaginal wall, causing such problems. Something as simple as a cough or sneeze can stimulate leakage, otherwise known as stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The good news is Dr Sue Feng can treat all those with one non-surgical 15-30 minute in-clinic procedure. The revolutionary process, which is virtually pain-free and safe, combines both the IncontiLase and IntimaLase laser treatments. The procedures involve a special attachment similar to a speculum, as used during a pap test, inserted into the vagina during which the entire vaginal region is treated with short laser pulses through a small handpiece. The laser has a photo-thermal heating effect on collagen in both the vaginal walls and urethra which causes collagen restructuring and regrowth. The result is a thickening and tightening of the vaginal walls and urethra. Patients normally need 2-3 sessions with a one-month interval. As there is no downtime or discomfort after treatment, you can immediately return to normal, everyday activities. So successful has it been, that 94 per cent of women reported their SUI improved significantly after 120 days and 68 per cent were completely rid of it. While 95 per cent of women indicated they experienced a more than moderate level of vaginal tightening as a result of the IntimaLase treatment, 3 treatments give a much longer, sustainable result.
