Tips for Reducing your Risk of Sun Damage and Slowing Down the Ageing Process
Face & Body Checks
An annual full face and body check is imperative to reduce the risk of sun damage. We recommend seeing your doctor if you notice a freckle, mole or lump that’s new or changing shape, colour or size or if you notice a sore that doesn’t heal.
Protection and Prevention
To help protect yourself against and prevent sun damage to your skin, ensure you apply sunscreen daily and wear protective clothing, a hat and sunscreen when outdoors. You should also minimise exposure to the sun between 10:00am and 4:00pm and utilise the SunSmart app for ultimate protection. Regardless of the measures you take to protect your skin, attend a skin review with your doctor on an annual basis, at minimum.
Our skin has a natural intuition to heal itself – the Jessner Peel taps into this response. Jessner peels are a combination of chemical exfoliants used primarily to improve skin conditions such as hormonal pigmentation, acne scarring, congestion and minimises the appearance of enlarged pores. Targeting the upper layer of the epidermis (skin), the Jessner solution removes damaged skin to reveal new smooth and youthful skin.

With the TCA peel, our clinicians reveal the skin you always had hiding beneath environmental damage and years of wear and tear. TCA or Trichloroacetic acid is a specific chemical formulation used to resurface and rejuvenate sun-damaged, uneven and pigmented skin as well as thickened, oily and mature skin types. This clinical strength treatment is a medium-depth peel that penetrates deeper than other exfoliating acids, such as glycolic or salicylic peels.

Skin needling is an advanced treatment aimed at inducing collagen and elastin production and refreshing the skin’s appearance. It can be used as part of a treatment plan or as a stand-alone preventative and restorative treatment to maintain the skin’s integrity and quality.
At MD Cosmetics, we use Dermapen 4, brand of skin needling device and the latest industry technology to reinvent micro-needling. The Dermapen 4 is TGA approved and repairs both surface skin and deeper dermal layers to reveal brighter, tighter and refined skin by improving blood supply and creating micro-channels for better product absorption. The Dermapen 4 device gently glides over the treatment areas while creating micro-punctures that encourage collagen production and elastin fibres, igniting the skin’s natural healing process.
By tapping into the skin’s self-rejuvenating function (collagen production and elastic fibres), Dermapen 4 treats a range of skin ailments from age and sun-damaged skin to acne and keloid scarring. Dermapen 4 is the safest form of micro-needling, as its fine needles’ stamp’ the skin, rather than ‘roll’, which significantly reduces the spreading of bacteria across the skin. The formation of microchannels in skin needling also results in improved absorption and enhanced penetration of active cosmeceutical products both immediately after the procedure and in the weeks following.
Different depths of skin needling can be administered according to the severity of skin conditions and the patient’s specific needs. It is important to note that different depths treat various skin conditions, which we discuss with you in your consultation.
- Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve congestion and oiliness
- Reduce the appearance of pores
- Improve surface texture
- Reduction in acne or surgical scars
- Reduction of pigmentation
- Improvement in inflammatory skin and rosacea
- Reduction in the appearance of stretch marks
- Support skin regeneration for tighter, more youthful skin by increasing collagen and elastin
Dermapen 4 can be performed on all skin tones and is an effective treatment for those looking to treat: acne, medical or acne scars, pigmentation, melasma, legs veins, vitiligo, stretch marks, pore size, improve quality and texture of skin and anti-ageing. This treatment is safe during pregnancy and can be modified upon consultation.
Results will last up to 12 months following treatment cost. Within several days to several weeks you will notice a smoother, brighter, and more radiant appearance, however, the full effects of the treatment do not appear until several months later.
Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment. However, Dermapen 4 micro-needling should repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend starting with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction we suggest an average of 3 to 6 treatments. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage.
The most common treatment area is the face, lip area, eye area, ears, neck, chest, hands and scalp however scars and stretch marks across the body can also be treated.
Downtime can last from 1-5 days. Most people will experience mild redness and possibly some swelling, however the inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly. Effects may last for 24-48 hours and there may be pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. To reduce redness after the procedure, we recommend a hydration hyaluronic acid, avoiding sun-exposure and using minimal makeup.

Sublative Texture, Pore, Tightening, Acne Treatment
The Sublative RF treatment is the only technology proven to reduce moderate to severe acne scars and stretch marks for all skin types while also improving skin laxity. This non-invasive treatment is designed to reach in under the skin and spread out under damaged areas, promoting rapid healing form the inside out. The Sublative applicator delivers medium-to-deep heating of the skin, activating fibroblasts (collagen secreting cells), which signals new collagen formation while prompting existing collagen to tighten. This patented technology is excellent for treating:
- Smoothness and overall radiance
- Surgical scars
- Rolling or pitted acne scars
- Improved skin laxity and enhanced facial contours
- Deep lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin reduction
- Skin texture & pore reduction
The Sublative Tightening Treatment can also be used on more sensitive areas, such as around the eyes as it utilizes radiofrequencies, rather than harsher lasers. Likewise, this treatment offers excellent results on the body, not just your face.
The Sublative™ RF applicator is designed to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin in a fractional manner, via an array of multi-electrode pins. The array delivers bipolar RF energy to the skin. Microscopic zones of epidermis and dermis are thermally ablated in a grid over the skin surface, where non-ablated zones serve as a reservoir of cells that promote rapid healing. Sublative technology is neither laser nor light based. Instead, this one-of-a-kind technology uses fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency directed to the skin in the form of a matrix.
This treatment results in improved skin tone and texture occurring over a four to six-month period. The issue of the untreated areas is supported, which accelerates the healing process of the skin.
Anyone looking to improve stretch marks, acne scars, sagging skin and skin texture, deep lines and wrinkles and surgical scares. This is also a fantastic treatment for overall improved skin radiance, smoothness and rejuvenation.
Those who have had recent sun damage and sunburn, pregnant or breastfeeding are not a candidate for this treatment. Suitable for fair, Asian and darker skin tones.
This depends on the area that is being treated; However, a Sublative RF treatment can typically take an hour-and-a-half or less to completed. This timeframe includes an additional 30 minutes for topical numbing to be applied prior to treatment.
The Sublative RF treatment is not considered a painful treatment. Some very mild discomfort may be felt during treatment. The sensation typically felt is heat, similar to a sunburn feeling. We ensure our patients are comfortable throughout the entire procedure and apply topical numbing cream and ice to aid any discomfort.
This is some downtime associated with the Sublative RF treatment. Plan for 3-5 days of healing, we recommend treatment towards the end of the week so you have the weekend to recover, however healing time will vary patient to patient.
Sublative Treatment single session – $500
Series of 2 sessions- $899
Combination Sublative + Sublime treatment $699
Sublime Contour & Lifting
Our Sublime Contour & Lifting treatment is like a skin-gym for the face, using a combination of light energy (infra-red technology) and radiofrequency energy that deep heat the skin layers, while the skin surface remains protected. Known as a non-surgical facelift, this heating process stimulates the formation of collagen and firming of existing collagen, in conjunction with enhancing skin texture for a plump, lifted and contoured effect. During your treatment, the skin contracts and tightens, while stimulating collagen remodelling for at least 90 days. Long after your treatment, collagen production continues, so you will continue to see improvements in skin tone and contour as it becomes tighter and firmer. Not just for the face, our Sublime Contour & Lifting treatment is suitable for areas of the body that need some TLC.
Designed to mitigate the tell-tale signs of aging, the Sublime Contour & Lifting treatment may improve the appearance of:
- Neck sagging
- Jowls (sagging skin below chin and jawline),
- Sagging eyelids and brows
- Improved facial contours
- Softens wrinkles and fine lines
- Firmer and stronger skin
- A more contoured appearance and lifted skin
The firming and rejuvenation treatments are gentle, comfortable treatments, that require minimal or no downtime. Many clients return to normal daily activities immediately after treatment. The unique cooling feature of the skin surface provides enhanced safety and additional comfort.
Visual results vary depending on the treatment. With the firming application, most clients see immediate to gradual results throughout their treatments. With the rejuvenation application, clients tend to see results after 2 to 3 treatments. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition and type.
Anyone to looking to improve ageing and damaged skin or those suffering from textual irregularities.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
Queensland is infamously labelled the ‘skin cancer capital of the world’, and at MD Cosmetic and Skin Clinic, we know all too well that the sun can be your skin’s worst enemy. Mild-to-severe sun damage can create a more aged appearance to the skin, such as pigmentation, deep wrinkles or red scaley blemishes (sun-spots or Actinic Keratosis). Photodynamic Therapy is an extremely safe treatment that produces excellent cosmetic results with minimal downtime. Photodynamic Therapy can bring new life to the face and other hard to treat areas such as the décolletage, arms, hands, and scalp. MD Cosmetic and Skin Clinic also use this treatment on younger skin suffering from causes acne and large pores in conjunction with other therapies.
The treatment uses a combination method, first a light-sensitive substance (already made naturally by the human body) is applied and absorbed into the abnormal or damaged areas. After a period of time, the treatment area is placed under an LED light, activating the substance and destroying skin abnormalities to reveal healed skin.
There is some downtime when receiving PDT. Depending on treatment area and after care downtime can be up to five days. Most patients will experience mild dryness and a faint to mild sunburnt appearance on the treated area.
Results will be seen after 10 days.
Those will severely sun damaged skin or referral from a physician or dermatologist for treatment of for precancerous spots such as actinic keratosis. Acne-prone skin and enlarged pores can also benefit from PDT.
Hair Removal Treatment
Living on the tropical Sunshine Coast, many of our clients choose to opt for a more efficient and long-term hair removal and reduction form. We use the revolutionary Super Hair Removal (SHR) IN-Motion™ technology, a permanent hair reduction method that doesn’t use chemicals or radiation, only light. Therefore, there is no damage to the skin, only the hair follicle. A safer, faster and more effective solution than traditional laser hair removal treatments, SHR technology uses multiple shots of low joules to penetrate deep into hair follicles at a cooler temperature than traditional IPL. These lower temperatures create a safer and more pain-free method of hair reduction. During treatment, you may experience some tingling or warming sensation as the SHR arm is passed over treatment areas.
Everyone is different; but if you’re a good candidate for the treatment, you’ll need approximately 6 treatments and patients will notice up to a 20% reduction in growth after each IPL hair removal session. To maximise results, treatments need to be spread across regularly 4-6-week intervals depending on the area. Most people require an average of 8-12 sessions to see optimum results. Thereafter maintenance will be required for most. Maintenance is required due to the cyclical and hormonal pattern of hair growth. Our Therapist will explain this fully during the consultation
Face – Including Cheeks, Top Lip, Hairline
Upper Body – including arms, chest, back
Lower Body – including legs, bikini and Brazilian
Some skin and hair types are not suitable for laser hair removal, such as very light and fair hair. Likewise, skin that is extremely tan or had recent sun exposure such as sunburn will not be able to receive treatment. Speak with us to determine if Laser hair removal is suitable for you.
