Asian laser skin whitening program

Our Asian Laser Skin Whitening Program is a treatment protocol using the Q Switch laser.   “White” does not mean the colour white, but to improve the clarity and “purity” of your skin.

Q Switch laser has proven to be safer and more effective when treating Asian and darker skin types with pigmentation problems.  IPL and other resurfacing lasers often cause unwanted pigmentation side effects.  Our Q-switch laser is a gentle laser using extremely short bursts of photo-acoustic energy to disrupt pigment containing cells, which is then cleared by macrophages in our skin, fading and clearing the treated area gradually.

Treatment protocols:

  • Generally a treatment protocol consisting of 6-8 treatments every 1-3 weeks are required to achieve the results
  • Some pigmented conditions such as birthmarks may require more treatment


Pigmentation Using Pastelle Laser

Asian Calf Muscle (Leg) Slimming

  • Calf muscles size can be selectively reduced in size using muscle relaxing injections. Mechanism of action is identical to the Jaw Slimming Injection for some patients 
  • The procedure takes about 15 minutes to perform.
  • It may take up to 6 weeks to see the result.
  • The result may last up to 6 months.
  • Price guide:  (depends on muscle strength and size) Approximately $500 to $1000 depends on size of calf and desired reduction.

Asian Chin and Nose Injections


We use non surgical techniques to augment Chins and noses, choosing volumising products specially suited for this purpose.

The advantages of non surgical treatment technique:


  • The procedure takes 10-20 minutes to perform.
  • Local anaesthestic injections often required or recommended for comfort
  • We commonly use cannula for the nose area or combination of needle + cannula for chin area 
  • Fees: approximately $700 for 1 ml volumising product depends on brand, plus consultation fee $80 
  • Reversible.
  • Adjustable
  • Longevity – depends on the product, approximately 6-12 months
  • The Nose is considered a high risk area for injections (patients need to understand the risk of vascular occlusion and the rare but devastating risk of blindness in this area, which will be discussed during the consultation)

Injectable collagen stimulation injections have been available since early 2000s.  

The information on this page for Bio-Stimulators will assist your understanding during your consultation with our doctor.  Due to TGA regulations, we cannot put before and after photos on our website.

Overtime we see too many patients' faces over-filled using temporary gel products. 

Temporary gels are water binding materials that occupy space in the tissues until the materials breakdown over 6-12 months.

Traditional wrinkles treatments, including temporary volumising gels do not improve the quality of the skin.  In fact after mid 20s, we lose about 1% of collagen per year from our face, causing our skin to be thinner as we age.  After menopause we lose even more collagen, up to 30% in the first 5 years of menopause, both in our skin and our bones.  

Collagen stimulators and bio-regenerative type products, on the other hand, has a bio-stimulatory effect, and most patients who use collagen bio-stimulators will notice an improvement in the quality of their skin initially, followed by a gradual increase in volume over a couple of months.  Results from collagen bio-stimulation injections may vary between individuals, but in general, results last longer than traditional temporary gel fillers.

There are a few types of collagen bio-stimulator in the Australian market and each have their unique benefits and disadvantages.  Our doctors will discuss the possible benefits of some of these bio-stimulators as well risks of these products during and post injections. 

It is also important to know how to incorporate bio-stimulators as part of your rejuvenation journey, when combined with other treatments such as Lasers, traditional cosmetic treatments and other energy based devices.  

You will need a thorough consultation, treatment planning and informed consent prior to collagen Biostimulator treatments. 

You may also need to have a few months interval between your previous treatments and collagen biostimulator treatments. 

Injectable Bio-stimulators are prescription only medicines in Australia and a doctor's consultation is essential.  

Main benefits:  

Improvements in volume occur gradually over a few months and provides natural looking result.  For some types of collagen stimulators, a few treatments may be required. 

Once your skin forms its own collagen, it takes longer for this collagen to breakdown.

Hence, results may last 12-24 months, longer than the average temporary gel products.  

For patients who have lost a lot of volume in their face and likely to require lots of temporary gel products, or patients who "burn" through their temporary gel quickly,  biostimulators may be an alternvative option in the long run.  This happens in women who have high metabolism or peri- and post-menopausal women. 

The aesthestic management of menopausal women is different to treating a women who is younger.  Women start to lose collagen with declining oestrogen levels, a whole decade before the onset of menopause, so replacing this collagen is sometimes more important than just filling the face. 

As collagen remodelling and collagen contraction occur overtime, most patients will also notice  "firmness" in the skin that is rarely achievable using traditional temporary gel products. 

Collagen Biostimulators are useful for reducing temporal hollowness, firming lateral high cheek, lateral jawline including pre-auricular region, jowls, neck and decolletage as well as hands. 


Higher upfront cost (when compared to traditional cosmetic injections) and for some biostimulators, a few treatments are required. 

Results are not immediate, as collagen production takes time, the improvements occur over a few months. 

Collagen Biostimulators are not suitable for lips and the thin skin around the eye (periorbital) region as there is a small risk of nodules.  Hence non biostimulatory treatments are required in these areas. 

Some patients with active autoimmune disorders may not be suitable for bio-stimulator injections.  A full medical history is essential to exclude contra-indications.

Other treatment risks are similar to traditional cosmetic injections includes pain, bruising, swelling, foreign body reaction, lumpiness, vascular occlusion and blindness.
