Skin Whitening Laser Program

We offer a range of cosmetic procedures specially designed for Asian Faces.

Asian laser skin whitening program

Our Asian Laser Skin Whitening Program uses a nano second laser designed to reduce pigmentation in the skin.  The goal is to improve the clarity of your skin, similar to Korean Style Skin Whitening Protocols.

Q Switch laser has proven to be safer and more effective when treating patients with Asian or darker skin types with pigmentation issues.  IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and other resurfacing lasers, may create pigmentation or make pigmentation worse.  Our Q switch laser is a gentle laser using extremely short bursts of photo-acoustic energy (less heat than IPL or other lasers) to disrupt pigment containing cells, which is then cleared by macrophages in our skin, fading and clearing the treated area gradually.

We use different Laser settings (or protocols) to treat the following conditions:

  • Melasma
  • Post Inflammation Hyperpigmentation
  • Nevus of Ota
  • Solar Lentigo
  • Pigmented Age Spots
  • Pigmented Birthmarks
  • Asian Skin Whitening and Pore Reduction

and with our treatment program and good skin care with sun protection, we can achieve:

  • Clearer skin – by improving skin pigmentation
  • Brighter skin – by producing overall skin whitening
  • Smoother skin – by producing better skin texture
  • Firmer skin – by increasing skin tone (Laser Toning & Laser Genesis program)
  • Less blemishes – freckles, moles, age spots, hair, large pores, acne, blood vessels.
  • Younger looking skin – by reducing fine wrinkles

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 treatments

Costs:  Q-Switch laser treatments from $350 per treatment (to treat facial pigmentation only)

Asian Face Slimming

Asian Face Slimming procedure involves the jawline (masseteric) injection of muscle relaxant.

  • Asians often have a very strong jaw muscle called Masseter. This muscle bulks the lower face and makes one’s face appear bigger and wider.
  • Muscle relaxing injections can shrink this muscle and this produce a slimmer jawline and in turn make the face appear smaller.
  • This is commonly referred to as Slim jawline injection.
  • The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes to perform. Fee Estimate:  $300 to $600
  • The results will take 1-2 weeks to take effect and generally lasts 3-4 months

Asian Calf Muscle (Leg) Slimming

  • Calf muscles can be shrunk using our muscle relaxing injections. Mechanism of action is identical to the Jaw Slimming Injection.
  • The procedure takes about 15 minutes to perform. Fee estimate $450 to $900, depends on size of calf.
  • It may take up to 6 weeks to see the result.
  • The result may last up to 6 to 9 months.
  • With more frequent injections, the results may last longer.

Asian Chin and Nose Injections

The nose is the central landmark on our faces. A beautiful nose should be in proportion to the rest of the face.  Similarly a weak chin can cause a visual imbalance of facial proportion and disrupt facial harmony.

We use non surgical techniques to augment Asian Chins and noses, choosing dermal fillers specially suited for these areas.

The advantages of non surgical treatment technique:

  • Easy, quick and simple. On average the procedure takes 5 to 10 minutes to perform.
  • Relatively painless.
  • Low downtime.
  • Affordable (approximately $650)
  • Reversible.
  • Immediate result – you can see the result immediately.
  • Adjustable – you can tell the doctor to inject more or less in certain areas of the nose to customise the nose to your desired shape.
  • Longevity – depends on the filler, approximately 8-12 months.

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.
