Home' Spa and Clinic : Volume 65 May 2016 Contents SHOWCASE
Featured throughout the treatment
menu is Dr Spiller biomimetic
skincare, which has been on board
with Face Plus clinics since the beginning.
"Ours is one of a select few clinics in
Australia to have exclusivity to the Dr Spiller
Biocosmetic skincare range," says Dr Mooney.
"Originating in Germany in the 1950s
and renow ned throughout Europe, Dr
Spiller is a bespoke, medical grade
cosmeceutical range based on natural
ingredients with proven results.
"We believed in it from the beginning
due to its history, formulation and visible
second-to -none results. Dr Spiller is a
favourite among our patients." Many anti-
ageing treatments are designed to damage
or irritate the skin in order to trigger new
growth, according to Paul Fister, distributor
of Dr Spiller. "This can cause inf lammation,
and a series of chemical reactions that
generate free radicals and ultimately
destroy collagen and elastin fibres," he says.
"Dr Spiller Biocosmetics use skin friendly
bio-active ingredients that are known to
reduce inflammation and irritation.
"Dehydration (manifesting as tight, rough
or scaly skin) is a symptom of excess moisture
loss. Oxidation through free radicals causes
damage to cells to a point where cells' DNA
may be permanently impaired. Dr Spiller
Biocosmetics contain a multitude of anti-
oxidants of proven effectiveness to combat this.
"Independent clinical tests have shown that
the Hydratain emulsion system delivers more
than twice the quantity of a given anti-oxidant
compared to traditional skin care creams."
Face Plus also uses Australian organic
skincare brand Edible Beauty, Australian
cosmeceutical range Ultraceuticals and
Aromatherapy Associates men's skincare,
The Refinery range.
Dr Mooney takes an holistic approach to
facial rejuvenation, stocking The Beauty
Chef inner beauty products.
"The best anti-ageing results can only
be achieved with a multi-disciplinary
approach," he says. "We can make an
amazing visible difference to skin by
using the world's most effective high- tech
medical grade cosmetic treatments. "But
truly beautiful skin comes from the inside,
too. So we look closely at patients' diet and
lifestyle choices, supplements and even their
happiness levels. With an holistic approach
skin can truly glow."
The Beauty Chef founder Carla Oates
(who, as it happens, is a Bondi Beach gal)
works with a dedicated team of chemists,
naturopaths and nutritionists on her inner
beauty powders and tonics that are based on
her own unique recipes.
"The first step to healthy, radiant skin is
balancing digestive health," says Carla. "Beauty
begins in the belly. Good skincare follows. "My
organic skincare range blends selected food
ingredients with a natural fermentation
process to bring out the very best in all of our
ingredients and keep the skin's ecosystem
strong and healthy. "I have embraced the
time-honoured art of fermentation for the

clever way that it naturally bio -activates
nutrients in ingredients to make them more
available for the body and skin to use."
Omnilux LED light therapy
This painless, relaxing treatment for skin
rejuvenation can reduce pore size, improve
health and vibrancy of the skin, promote
healing of damaged or compromised skin
and can remove bacteria that causes redness
and inflammation in acne-prone skin. As
LED does not generate heat, the skin is at no
risk of being burnt or other wise damaged.
Overall it leaves skin with a healthy glow.
3D Therapy by Cutera
"Every person ages at different rates and
in different ways; some people develop
redness, some develop lines or sunspots
or they have one, two or all of these
conditions," says Dr Mooney. "Cutera's 3D
Revitalize Therapy takes a three-tiered
approach to revitalising the appearance for
all of these conditions:
We treat the appearance of sun damage,
sun spots and pigmentation caused by solar
exposure with the Limelight IPL.
Laser Genesis is the go-to-complexion
laser for treating fine lines and the signs of
ageing. It stimulates and increases dermal
collagen production for refreshing the
entire face, neck and décolletage.
Titan is used for skin tightening and
treating loose skin on the face, arms, neck,
stomach and other areas. Titan "tightens"
the skin using a safe, non-surgical method
to dramatically restore the skin's healthy
and youthful appearance.
