Can you treat scars?
We can treat some scars using our skin needling procedure partnered with ongoing skin care. Acne scars (pitted scars) and other types of scars can be treated with this procedure which stimulates the healing of the skin. This resurfaces the skin with a healthy layer of scar-free or significantly scar-reduced skin.
Will my results look natural?
Our injectable procedures are performed by our clinical team who have years of training to ensure your results look natural with your existing features. Our doctors are fully qualified plastic surgeons and have had decades of experience guiding their patients in the right direction when it comes to their appearance.
What will your skin consultation tell me?
Using a series of examinations we will assess your skin for congestion, pigmentation, sun damage and spider veins (vascular problems). Our clinical team can also assess your appearance for common problems such as dry and sensitive skin. This examination will provide us with the information we need to recommend the best solution for your unique condition.
What’s the difference between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers?
This is a common question and the answer is simple. Anti-wrinkle injections are used to prevent wrinkles from forming or prevent them from becoming worse. They work by limiting movement of the muscle. Once this is done the muscle cannot crease the skin as it did before, thus reducing your risk of wrinkles. Fillers on the other hand are used to increase volume by injecting a more solid substance into the lips, cheeks or other area. They are used to plump up areas that may appear saggy, thin or wrinkled.
Why do you recommend Rationale Skin Care Products?
Rationale Skin Care is a well-trusted brand amongst industry professionals including dermatologists. We believe that the formula of the Rationale Skin Care brand is the most advanced anti-ageing product available and is the best investment for ongoing skin care. This is why we recommend these products to our patients as well as offer Rationale Enzyme Reactivation Treatments.
What’s the best anti-ageing treatment?
Every patient is different and thus every patient will require different treatments to achieve their desired results. For some patients, their ageing skin becomes very wrinkled, yet they are still happy with the volume of their facial features. These patients will receive the best results from anti-wrinkle injections. Other patients notice their skin thinning as they age giving them a worn or hollow appearance, perhaps with thinned lips. These patients will receive the best results from dermal fillers. We also recommend and hold the Rationale Skin Care Products range which is a collection of well-trusted skin care products designed for ongoing anti-ageing treatment.
How do I get rid of forehead wrinkles?
Forehead wrinkles are caused by consistent expressions including squinting or raising your eyebrows. The loss of collagen and suppleness that occurs as you age makes these creases more prominent.
Depending on your unique condition, and the results of your skin consultation, we may recommend anti-wrinkle injections. Injections reduce the appearance of forehead lines and wrinkles and can also prevent them occurring in the future.
What is the recovery time for lip fillers in Melbourne?
While you may experience some swelling or a little discomfort, in most cases patients will be able to carry out the rest of their day as normal once the treatment is completed. The duration of the treatment will be dependent on your individual desires and the areas being treated. However, the treatment time is never extensive and will only include minimal pain.
I have prominent frown lines, what can I do?
Frown lines are prominent wrinkles that appear between your eyebrows and can often be combined with forehead lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. These lines are more pronounces than fine lines and generally, we will recommend the use of anti-wrinkle injections as treatment. As always, our recommendations are dependent on individual circumstances, and a skin consultation is necessary to determine the best course of action for you.

What are wrinkle fillers made of?
At Collins St Skin Aesthetics we use a range of dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Emervel which are made up of a naturally occurring ingredient called hyaluronic acid. The body naturally uses this molecule to keep skin plump and elastic as well as keeping joints functioning properly. Utilising this molecule in wrinkle filler means we are utilising the bodies naturally occurring molecules to restore fullness.

Can you treat neck wrinkles?
Due to its delicate nature, the neck area can reveal the ageing process even more prominently than the face. Unfortunately, many anti-wrinkle treatments miss out on treating the neck focusing on the more visible face area. Depending on your situation, anti-wrinkle injections may be utilised in the lower jaw and neck region targeting the crepey, saggy skin in the delicate area.
Do you offer other face treatments?
In addition to dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections, Collins St Skin Aesthetics offer skin needling and enzyme reactivation treatments. These treatments encourage healthy skin rejuvenation and improve the overall appearance.
