DermaSweep is one of our most popular treatments here at Liberty Belle, with celebrities such as Jennifer Hawkins, Rebecca Judd and Steph Claire Smith posting about their results. Since our DermaSweeps are the talk of the town, we thought we’d tell you a bit about how they work.

DermaSweep is a comprehensive yet relaxing facial exfoliation treatment that involves a clinician using a special wand with fine brush tips to sweep and suction away the topmost layer of dead, dull-looking skin.

The treatment also firms the skin by increasing its blood flow and applying a Hyaluronic Acid hydrating solution. Manual extractions are often performed to clear any congestion, leaving you looking wonderfully refreshed and rejuvenated.

Dermasweep

But let us let you in on a secret.

While the results can be fantastic on their own, our clinicians often follow the DermaSweep with either a Laser Genesis or a Pellevé Skin Tightening Treatment. These treatments work on firming or tightening the deeper layers of skin, thereby increasing the rejuvenation effect.

Laser Genesis Skin Therapy is suitable for people of all pigment skin types. It uses gentle laser technology to heat the dermis and stimulate collagen production, which can firm the skin as well as diminish the appearance of surface redness, scars and fine lines.

Pellevé, on the other hand, is calibrated to improve skin tightness using radiofrequency technology. This treatment heats the deeper layer where the skin meets the fat, causing immediate collagen contraction and tightening, as well as stimulating collagen growth, to ‘iron out’ superficial wrinkles. Pellevé is better suited to those with specific ageing concerns associated with skin laxity.

Combining these treatments is an effective way of cleaning the outer skin, whilst also providing deeper, long-term benefits.

So there you have it – a Liberty Belle Special! The DermaSweep combined with Laser Genesis or Pellevé can be the perfect, painless, maintenance routine, or perhaps just a special pre-event treatment to help you look utterly radiant without downtime!

Many of our clients ask us why Jane Iredale is the only brand of makeup we stock here at Liberty Belle. This is because we believe the makeup you use should be an extension of your skin care regime, with beneficial effects to optimise the treatments you receive and the skin care products you utilise. In our opinion, healthy skin is the best cosmetic of all, and Jane Iredale is the brand that helps you achieve just that.

Jane Iredale established her line of makeup in 1994, and it has been the recommended choice of many plastic surgeons and skin care specialists around the world ever since thanks to the wealth of advantages it boasts.

The products are mineral-based, which means they are less irritating to the skin than other kinds of makeup. Ingredients are natural and very often plant-derived too, making them healthier and more suitable for sensitive skin. Where some brands of makeup force you to choose between a desired cosmetic effect and your skin’s health, Jane Iredale actually works to improve the skin, and each product is beneficial in some way. For example, the PurePressed Base mineral foundations contain SPF and antioxidants to protect the skin, while the luscious LipDrink lip balms provide SPF, soothing hydration, and rich oils to nourish the lips. Whether it’s environmental protection, hydration, or additional vitamins and antioxidants, Jane Iredale is sure to supply the invisible benefits you need while making you look radiant.

Jane Iredale makeup comes in a wide variety of shades and colours to suit all skin types. The naturally-derived pigments provide brilliant, long-lasting colour, particularly in the lipstick and eye shadow ranges. Whether you’re after a subtle, natural look or something more glamorous, we have the shade for you.

This makeup line is also certified cruelty-free; no products are tested on animals and no animal-derived ingredient, such as beeswax, is sourced in an inhumane way. Many of the products are suitable for vegans, and where possible gluten is also avoided, so these products are accessible to those with wheat allergies.

To get the most out of Jane Iredale’s extensive makeup range, we encourage you to come in to Liberty Belle so we can match you to the products and colours best suited to your skin. Make your cosmetics an extension of your skin care today!

Our Dermal Clinicians share their favourite treatments and products with us.

Jen – Dermal Clinician

Dermal Clinician - JenI am the skincare queen! You name it I’ve tried it.

For years I’ve always struggled at reducing my pigmentation, over 5 years ago I had a full face of IPL and I loved it. The IPL picked up all of my dark freckles however it still left blotchy sun damage behind.  The best treatment I’ve ever had was Fraxel – this picked up all of the light blotchy uneven pigmentation the IPL couldn’t treat. Since I had my Fraxel over a year ago, maintenance and protection is now my main focus.

To maintain my skin’s natural glow I receive regular clear and brilliant treatments (aka baby Fraxel) and stick to my strict ‘at home’ routine.

Every morning I cleanse with my Purity Clean Cleanser and start by applying Aspect Dr Multi B Serum followed by Obagi 20% Professional C Serum. After that I apply my favourite product in the entire world….. Skin Medica LYTERA. LYTERA is the strongest most amazing pigment inhibitor I have ever used. Not only does it lighten and brighten my pigmentation, it reduces the risk of my pigmentation getting worse over time. The creamy hydrating formulation is perfect for my skin as it’s light weight and I don’t breakout, I finish off my morning routine with Cosmedix Reflect SPF and my Jane Iredale Mineral Make-Up.

At night I try to keep it simple once I have removed all of my makeup I apply TNS Eye Repair for hydration around my eyes followed by TNS Essential Serum. This highly potent growth factor serum is amazing for reducing fine lines and trying to fight the ageing process. I finish my routine with our beautiful Results RX Vitamin A solution – the vitamin A helps increase my skins natural exfoliation process while targeting the pigmentation, the AHAs in the serum help to get rid of any annoying blackheads.

Kirsty – Dermal Clinician

Kirsty - Dermal ClinicianIt’s all about maintenance with me. I cannot live without my monthly Hyrdafacial which keeps my skin looking fresh, even and leaves it feeling firmer. I think having these in conjunction with my active home care routine is what gives my skin a glow.

Injectable treatments:  I love a little botox in my forehead and chin every 4 months to keep me looking happy! Before Botox I had a bad habit of always frowning, especially when I was concentrating which lead to people always ask me what was wrong! Having the Botox has broken this habit for me and I couldn’t be happier.

 I’ve also recently had my lip patched up by Dr Chris Moss after I had an accident with some tram lines… 16 stitches in my lip and you would never know after the fantastic job he did! Then Jo, one of our amazing Clinical Nurse Injectors, cosmetically corrected my lip to give me an even smile again. I can’t tell you how thankful I am to both Dr Chris Moss and Jo to have my smile back again.

Jo has also put a little filler into my cheeks which I love, it really helps to frame my face.

What do I use at home? I still love my Skin Medica Facial Cleanser, I keep it in the shower and it lasts me for ages!  I use a combination of Multi B serum, and Hyaluronic serum by Aspect Doctor during the day finishing off with Even Up, my new ‘go to’ primer SPF in one.  At night I alternate between Lytera, Retinol and TNS Essential Serum depending on how my skin is feeling. During the day I am loving the new Colour Science brush on SPF 50+ to top up my sunscreen during the day it is quick easy and sits flawlessly over my Jane Iredale Mineral powder. This is my favourite product at the moment and I think it is a real game changer in the sunscreen market.

I love to perform CoolSculpting because it just works and the results can be truly transforming. We now have the new chin applicator which is really exciting for me to be able to address double chins!

Daniela – Dermal Clinician

DanielaMy passion and enthusiasm drives me to create the best treatment plans for my patients to help them achieve their desired results.

My skin care regime consists of a few key products: I begin by using a cleansing oil, Cosmedix Purity Solution to remove my makeup. It’s non irritating around the eyes and leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. Following that I use Aspect Dr Multi B, Obagi 20% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Serum to fight free radical damage, brighten my skin and hydrate. I finish off with Resveratrol Moisturiser, K-Ceutic SPF 50+ to nourish and protect my skin from UVA/UVB damage and lastly Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup.

One of my favourite treatments to perform and receive is our very popular laser treatment – Clear + Brilliant. This treatment improves my texture, tone and gives my skin a radiant, youthful glow creating a more even skin canvas. The non-ablative laser comprises of two different hand pieces to target each individual concern. What I love about this treatment, is its ability to treat all SKIN TYPES. This is possible as the target chromophore is water, therefore it has no attraction to melanin. So whether it’s a pigment issue, fine lines, wrinkles or pore refinement, Clear + Brilliant is suited for all. It is an excellent monthly maintenance treatment for patients who want that little bit extra, with minimal downtime and dramatic results that continue to deliver benefits for months after.

My Favourite skin care product is Aspect Dr Hyaluronic Serum. It contains a distinctive blend of hyaluronic acid, that replenishes the skins (TEWL) moisture content. Ideal for individuals who have reactive, inflamed skin, flaky, dry or dehydrated skin concerns. I love the gel texture of the product and its calming, soothing and hydrating ingredients. It plays a vital role in my skin care regime.

Jasmine – Dermal Clinician

Jasmine - Dermal Clinician

I can’t get enough of active skin care – I love it!

It’s almost impossible for me to pick a favourite product because everything I use is my favourite. I don’t spend money on shoes and handbags but skin care is definitely my weakness. But if I had to choose, then TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream would be my pick as it’s so soothing, great for dry skin and contains wonderful anti-ageing ingredients. I use it on its own but sometimes mix it with my favourite serums i.e. Vitamin A.

K Ceutica is a product I wear everyday for its SPF protection. It’s also a great primer – I always look for products that do more than one thing.

Dermal fillers: I have my lips done once per year to add fullness and definition and quite frankly I think they look fabulous! To enhance my lips even more I use Jane Iredale lip liner and lip stick – red of course!  I also use the Jane Iredale  Mineral Powder Foundation that gives me a flawless looking complexion.

We’re often asked what treatments we’ve had at Liberty Belle and we’re more than happy to share our ‘secrets’ with you.

Jo, Clinical Nurse Specialist / Nurse Injector

Jo - Clinical Nurse Specialist - InjectablesMy regular skincare routine involves a combination of several treatments and products that we have available at Liberty Belle.

Anti-wrinkle injections –  I have anti-wrinkle injections every 3 months or so to soften my frown, forehead lines and crows feet.  We use low doses to achieve a natural looking, subtle result.  The aim is not to create a frozen face that shows no emotion or expression. That’s harder to achieve than you might think.

Dermal fillers – I’ve had dermal fillers in my cheeks recently to lift and define the contours of my face.  As with the anti–wrinkle injections the aim is to freshen up the face, not change it.  We often treat a person’s face with dermal fillers in stages.  This way our clients work with us to gradually and subtly achieve their desired outcomes.

Laser Treatments – I am a HUGE fan of Fraxel.  While the downtime is no fun, the results are absolutely worth it.  I’ve had two Fraxel treatments and my skin feels fantastic.  After having children my skin became prone to some pigmentation. Since Fraxel it is better than it has been in years.  My skin’s glowing and feels healthier. Pigmentation does require ongoing maintenance.  Active skincare and sun protection have absolutely contributed to this major improvement in my skin.  I’ll probably be back for another Fraxel in about 12 months time ….. or maybe sooner!

Active Skin Care Products aim to keep my pigmentation at bay with the added bonus of containing excellent anti-ageing properties.
 
In the morning:
I cleanse my skin with Purity Clean.  I like the deep clean it provides without stripping my skin and making it feel dry. 
Simply Brilliant and Lytera come next. These both contain a complex combination of active ingredients aimed at keeping my pigmentation under control.
K Ceutic provides such great sun protection but is still gentle and nourishing enough to be used as a post treatment cream. Sunscreen plays a very important role in minimising pigmentation, anti-ageing and overall skin health.  K Ceutic is also a great primer under make up!
 
At night 
I cleanse again and then apply Retinol Complex (Vitamin A) – this is fabulous for anti-ageing.  Use at night and make sure you wear sunscreen during the day.
Results RX Eye Doctor – I believe this is the best eye cream/serum on the market.  Use sparingly – a little goes a long way.
Multi B and Resveratrol  hydrate my skin which  can easily become dry and congested
Mineral makeup – I’m a big fan of Jane Iredale BB cream.  I mix it with their Smooth Affair primer if I want less coverage.  It’s SPF25 and water resistant.  By using a good quality mineral make up I am not undoing all of the good work my skin care is doing by adding harsh chemicals (found in a lot of makeups) to my skin.  Jane Iredale also has a wide range of beautiful colours for cheeks, eyes and lips.

Alisha – Clinical Nurse Specialist / Nurse InjectorAleisha - Clinical Nurse Injector

I have always had very fair skin and have been concerned about my pigmentation and acne scarring.

To keep my skin looking its best and to ward off the signs of ageing, my skin care routine involves:

Laser treatments – I have an Excel V treatment every 8 months to treat the dark circles under my eyes and smooth signs of pigmentation around my cheeks and jaw line.

Anti-wrinkle injections – I generally find I need these every 6 months to remove fine lines and wrinkles.around my eyes.

Dermal fillers – I am passionate about natural looking results so when I use dermal fillers my aim is to achieve a ‘fresher’ looking version of me! I have used them to add volume to my lips and contours of my cheeks.

Active Skin Care Products – My favourite product is K Ceutic.It contains a combination of ingredients designed to repair (glycoprotein and hyaluronic acid), moisturize (shea butter), and soothe (K Complex) the skin.

Exfoliation: My favourite treatment of all is the DermaSweep. I try to have one of these monthly as part of my regular skin care routine or  a few days before a special occasion. My skin always feels fresher and healthier and I love the ‘glow’ that always prompts people to ask what I’ve had done!

Chelsea – Clinical Nurse Specialist / Nurse Injector

Chelsea - Clinical Nurse InjectorI have an olive complexion, being half Italian half Dutch however when I had my little boy my skin exploded with pigmentation. My skin care routine involves lots of preventative measures to minimise damage and protect as much as possible.

Sunscreen and a hat: I don’t go anywhere outdoors without ensuring I am protected.

Anti-wrinkle injections: As far as injectables go my frown is my main conern which I treat every four months. I have a minimal dose around my eyes and as I grind my teeth, every 6 months i have my masseters treated. This also thins the shape of the face.

Laser Treatments: I have recently had a Clear + Brilliant treatment to smooth out my skin tone, freshen up the overall appearance and tighten those areas that had started to loose elasticity, particularly around my jawline. I’m not a big fan of the sensation of this treatment (a bit like rubber bands flicking your skin) but I love the results!

Active Skin Care Product: I use all my usual vitamins A,B,C and Lytera for brightening. I have regular Vitamin A peels and DermaSweeps. My favourite product is Eye Doctor for my eyes, that area is so important to keep hydrated.

We invite you to come in and chat to us about your concerns and the best treatment options for you.

Rebecca Judd - Clear + Brilliant Treatment at Liberty Belle

As keen readers of her blog, Rebecca Judd Loves,  we also love keeping up to date with her regular fashion and styling tips, beauty secrets, career advice and family insights. But what we especially love, is when she shares her favourite Liberty Belle treatments with her followers.

In her latest blog, Rebecca talks about her recent ‘Clear + Brilliant Permea’ treatment and is offering her followers the chance to win the ultimate Christmas giveaway. Ten lucky winners will receive a Liberty Belle Clear & Brilliant treatment and $350 worth of active skincare products. Total value $700.

Visit Rebecca Judd Loves to win. Good luck!

Read Rebecca’s blog latest blog below:

Ahhh finally a pigment reducing laser which can be used during the Summer months with no down time- Introducing the Clear & Brilliant Permea (yes, you read correctly- NO downtime!).

I love my moles/beauty spots but I’m not a fan of pigmentation, sun spots and new freckles clouding my skin and making it look dull. I use a lot of serums (A, B, C) which work wonders but sometimes it’s nice to get a super boost- laser style!

In the past I would always get IPL (Intense Pulated Light) in the winter months. One treatment would be all it took to turn my pigmentation and freckles into black flecks before they wore off about a week later to reveal PERFECT, glowing skin. This treatment requires about 7 days of down time for the job I’m in (trying to look nice on TV and not scare my audience!) and this year I just couldn’t find 7 days in a row when I wasn’t working to be able to have the treatment.

I was also keen on experimenting with the FRAXEL laser as I’d seen some great results on girlfriends, but again, it requires a week’s downtime which I just couldn’t do.

So knowing my predicament (increasing freckles/pigmentation but no time time to lie low and the added drawback of it now being a far sunnier time of year which makes IPL and FRAXEL less ideal), the team at Liberty Belle called me to tell me about the new Clear and Brilliant Permea.

The Clear and Brilliant can reduce pigmentation and pore size plus it will brighten the skin, improve tone and radiance. It fights the signs of ageing before they occur, is safe for treatment over the summer months and is suitable for women breastfeeding who may have hormonal pigment that they would like to treat. How?

Rebecca Judd - Clear + Brilliant Permea

It uses fractionated laser technology to target a small percentage of the surface of the skin leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid recovery and healing. Plus, the special properties of the laser makes the skin permeable, which allows for better absorption of high strength active skin care. So in layman’s terms- it’s like a baby FRAXEL but less intense resulting in no down time. You’ll need a few treatments at monthly intervals to achieve that perfect skin look.

I booked in for my 30 minute treatment and it was a strange feeling. Of course it was painful but not the worst beauty related pain I’ve experienced (my first IPL session when I was 25 was pretty horrific- but geez did it look good!). I can best describe it by saying that it feels like you have momentarily zipped your skin into a zipper, except the zip is boiling hot. Ha! The pain doesn’t last long and afterwards, apart from a little sand paper-ish feeling on your skin and some extra heat for a couple of hours, you are good to go (like good to go on LIVE TV 4 hours later- woohoo).

In an incredibly generous offer, Chris and Andrea Moss and their team at Liberty Belle are offering Clear & Brilliant Permea treatments purchased this year for $250 (Usually $350).

My name is Barb. I’m 55 years old and this is my story.

Barb - Before & After images - light makeup   Before                                                                                  After – light makeup             

Barb has had a series of non-surgical treatments at Liberty Belle Skin Centre including Fraxel DUAL, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.                                                              

Barb - Before & after photo - no makeupBefore                                                                                   After – no makeup

Barb has had a series of non-surgical treatments at Liberty Belle Skin Centre including Fraxel DUAL,  anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.

Results may vary from patient to patient.

In Barb’s words …

“My life in general has not been one of opportunity – born into a family of 7, motherless from the age of 10.  As a child I loved the sun as most Australians did, we never used sunscreen, rather the opposite, bathing ourselves in oils to compete for a darker tan.  A beauty regime was never something I thought much about nor was shown how to maintain my skin. Now at the age of 55, I felt my appearance lacked youth, looked tired and sallow, and daily cleansing and moisturising was not enough. I found that when I was getting ready to go out anywhere and looked into the mirror to fix my hair (which had always been my focus), I would see the sunspots on my face especially the large one near my eye.  I was constantly covering it up with foundation but had no idea how or what was the best way to camouflage it.  Over time I noticed more spots appearing on other parts of my face and it got to the stage where it became too hard to cover up and I would need copious amounts of foundation which then looked ‘caked’ on.  I never felt lipstick helped with my appearance as I have a very thin top lip and no shape.  After this I gave up looking at my face in the mirror.”

Barb with Andrea Moss

“I was watching a kid’s soccer game and saw Andrea Moss in the crowd.  It was hard to miss her as she was very vocal.  It was a close game and Andrea’s 12 year old daughter had just kicked 2 goals.  I was later introduced to her.  We talked about the large sun spot near my eye.  She then offered to laser the sunspots off my face.  I was so taken aback by her generosity that it sent myself and my friend into tears as she knew how I have always wanted to get rid of the ugly marks off my face.  I am sure Andrea must have thought we were nuts.  I look back now and laugh about it.” 

Barb with Dr Chris Moss

“A few weeks later I was contacted by Liberty Belle and went in. I had always wanted to get something done and they made it possible for me. I found out about other rejuvenation treatments that would involve cosmetic injectables.  I couldn’t believe that anyone would want to help me and be so generous.”   

Barb and Jen, one of our Dermal Therapists

“From the moment I walked into Liberty Belle there was an air of serenity.  The staff were lovely, helping me through every step and sensing my nervousness.  Talking to doctors for me is very unnerving.  Dr Chris Moss was not what I had expected: he was a good looking, quietly spoken and very gentle man.  He has great people skills, not with just me but the way he spoke to his staff as well.  You can see he had as much respect for them as they had for him.”

Barb with Kirsty one of our Dermal Therapists

“At first I was a little concerned about the Fraxel and injectable treatments.  Will it hurt? What will it look like during and after the procedures? What will be the final results?” 

Barb getting ready for a Fraxel DUAL treatment

“After the initial numbing, I was ready.  It felt weird having a numb face, then the Fraxel began.  There was a little discomfort, feeling like a slight heat spot.  It is not something that is unbearable, and you do get used to it, some areas are a little more sensitive than others.”

Barb having a Fraxel DUAL treatment

“Immediately after my face was very hot.  Water spray was very cooling and the Zimmer cooler was my ‘friend’ for a few hours.  The next day my face had swelled a little but it was not uncomfortable, just puffy.  Within a few days the skin had turned to flakiness and was pretty much finished by day 6.”

   Anti-wrinkle injections

“The injectables were slightly more intense than the laser.  I could hear noises from within the skin.  It was a bit odd but I got instant results. I experienced minimal bruising and was slightly tender but nothing that was uncomfortable.”

Dr Chris Moss - anti-wrinkle injections Dr Chris Moss - anti-wrinkle injections

“The photos of me now speak a thousand times louder than any words I can write. I found the whole experience wonderful.  My husband’s initial thoughts regarding lasers and injectables was one of disbelief.  He thought all photos of lasers and injectables were computer generated and photoshopped!  But after going through the journey with me he knows that my photos and all the improvements are real and not photoshopped.”

Barb - after photo

“Thank you to the team at Liberty Belle, Dr Chris Moss and Andrea.  I hope that sharing my experience has been helpful to others considering having some treatments. I am blessed to have met Andrea on a bitterly cold Saturday morning at a kids soccer game!”

Summer…..beach …..bathers …….daunting ……unfortunately not all of us are blessed with model curves and many of us have stubborn fat pockets that no matter how much we diet and exercise, we just can’t shift.

Coolsculpting is an amazing technology that noticeably reduces fat bulges by using vacuum pressure to draw in the tissue and freeze the fat cells. The lipids inside the fat cells crystallise and then are eventually cleared via the lymphatic system, through the liver and processed like any other cell remnants. It targets specific fat bulges such as:

  • Tuck shop arms
  • Muffin tops
  • Tummies
  • Thigh gaps
  • Saddle bags

We’ve had the Coolsculpting technology for over 2 years now with noticeable results in our patients. It is a “very cool” body contouring treatment that is scientifically proven to work!

My other summer tips are:

  • Drink plenty of water

10 February 2015 – Rebecca Judd Loves

It’s about time I upped my beauty game on RJL and so here we go- probably the best giveaway in the history of my blog.

I’ve been going to Liberty Belle Skin Clinic since I arrived in Melbourne from my home town of Perth in November 2007, and have never looked back. Their team of highly trained medical professionals know exactly what my skin needs and how to achieve it. Whether it’s congestion, pigment, broken capillaries, hair in places it shouldn’t be (eek)- the staff there know how to fix the problem. All of the treatments I receive are non-invasive (ie. NOT plastic surgery) and are performed at the skin clinic part of the business which is owned by renowned Plastic Surgeon Chris Moss and managed by his clever wife, Andrea.

As I’ve hit 30 years old, I now pay a lot more attention to the products I put on my skin. I use a lot of serums with active ingredients and other products specifically targeted at problem areas. As I wear a lot of make up for my day job where certain nasty chemicals are hard to avoid, I make sure I ALWAYS use skincare products that don’t contain any nasties. Think no parabens, formaldehyde, sodium lauryl sulphate, propylene glycol, mineral oil and no testing on animals. I wish I could apply this ethos to everything I put on my skin but I find it hard in the makeup genre because the industry is not as advanced with the professional level of products that the skincare industry has achieved.

Makeup is clearly lagging. There are some brands like Hourglass at Mecca Cosmetica which is making waves in the makeup field. That is, they are at a professional level where they can be used on TV and in shoots. However most of the makeup you see in makeup artists’ kits is full of crap. As this makes me feel a little guilty for my body (and the animals), I make sure I go crazy on the chemical free, cruelty free skincare side of things!

So what treatments do I receive regularly from Liberty Belle?

Dermasweep: It’s like a super intense exfoliation which is only available at licensed medical practitioners. It is a unique combination of microdermabrasion and simultaneous serum infusion. The vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow, cleans out the pores and removes skin debris thus leaving your skin smoother. My dermal clinician, Kirsty, used two handpieces for the Dermasweep: a nylon and a silk handpiece to brush and smooth away dull dead skin cells whilst infusing the skin with a Hyaluronic acid solution which holds 1000 times its own weight in water to super hydrate the skin. She also does a great extraction after this which clears any extra congestion.

Laser Genesis: This treatment follows the Dermasweep and uses a passive laser that gently heats the tissues up to 42 degrees to stimulate collagen and elastin production whilst plumping the skin, refining the texture and clearing away redness. It actually feels like hot wax dripping on your skin- not too painful but just enough to know it’s doing something. Kirsty then finishes off with a vitamin A infusion to nourish and revitalise the skin by providing the lower levels of the epidermis with ingredients to stimulate turnover and DNA repair.

IPL– Intense Pulsated Light: I have an IPL session about once a year (when I’m not pregnant or breastfeeding which seems to be every second year these days so I’ll just try and squeeze these in when I can!). Don’t listen to people who tell you this treatment doesn’t hurt (Yeah maybe if you’ve had a local anaesthetic). This treatment bloody hurts, especially along your jaw bone (I can feel my dental nerves shaking in their roots) and around the sensitive tip of your nose- eek. But the result is SO WORTH IT. I always have the clearest skin from 1 week post treatment (it takes about a week for all of the darkened pigment to flake off). I’m talking no spots, marks, veins etc- it is ahhhhhhmazing. A couple of tips with this treatment- if you like your freckles then this treatment isn’t for you. I have a few beauty spots which I like so I have them ‘spot covered’ so they are not zapped off. Also, this treatment is best done in winter when you’re out of the sun as your skin is particularly sensitive afterwards.

So, drum roll please, Liberty Belle are giving away some fantastic prize packs to 15 lucky RJL fans.

For Melburnians (or any one who can get themselves to the treatment in Melbourne)- 10 lucky RJL readers will receive the “Rebecca Judd Treatment Package” which consists of:

– 1x Dermasweep, 1x Laser Genesis, 1x Healite (relaxing LED treatment that helps in collagen stimulation and general wellness) to be taken in the one treatment session at their Toorak clinic.

-1x Rebecca Judd skincare pack by Aspect Dr which includes Mild Clean Facial Cleanser, Active C Serum, Multi B Plus Serum, Resveratrol moisturising cream.

For interstate entrants, 5 lucky RJL readers will receive the “Rebecca Judd Skincare Package” by Aspect Dr which includes Mild Clean Facial Cleanser, Active C Serum, Multi B Plus Serum, Resveratrol moisturising cream.

How to enter?

This giveaway will be run through Instagram. Simply post a photo of your skin, follow @libertybelleskincentre and #rjlXlibertybelle Please tell us in your post whether you are from Melbourne or interstate.

Winners will be notified on February 19th via Instagram and will be sent an email address to organise your appointment or delivery of your products.

Good luck!

During the Summer months, my essential daily skincare routine includes products that are anti-ageing and contain antioxidants and SPF protection.

I can’t get enough of Obagi Vitamin C range – my favourite being the C-Exfoliating Day Lotion (with Vitamin C) that combines the powerful combination of 10% l’ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and hyaluronic acid which is a light but intensely hydrating and smoothing formula. It’s also perfect for more sensitive skin types as a rejuvenating exfoliant because it doesn’t contain any retinol (Vitamin A). The glycolic acid contained in the lotion is known to slough off dead skin cells to reduce the signs of sun damage, hyper-pigmentation and minimise fine lines. Vitamin C enhances collagen synthesis and firmness and protects against premature ageing.

C-Exfoliating Day Lotion (with Vitamin C) is great for most skin types as a day moisturiser and goes on beautifully under makeup. What I notice is softer, smoother and more radiant skin.

As the summer months approach and sunnies are foraged from the bottom of our handbags, it’s always a timely reminder for some anti-ageing wrinkle injections around the eye area. A small amount in the frown or eye area lifts the brow, opens the eyes and softens the squints. Conservative doses can keep the crows feet at bay and maintain the delicate eye area without looking like you’ve seen a ghost, in fact… this Christmas, it’ll be our little secret.

If you have any skin concerns or would like to book an appointment for a skin assessment, please call us on 9826 9988. We will work with you to recommend the best treatment plan.
