New clinic offers holistic approach to skin care

Redgum Skin Clinic’s Site Leader Monique Skinner.

Six months since it’s official opening, Corowa’s newest skin clinic is busier than ever offering holistic skin care treatment with state-of-the-art equipment to hundreds of patients every month.

From skin cancer surveillance, IPL hair removal, scar removal, IPL skin treatments, laser pigmentation removal, and skin analysis, Redgum Skin Clinic is the one stop shop for skincare.

And they don’t just offer cosmetic laser treatments during the winter months - they believe it’s the perfect time to get serious about skin care.

Site Leader Monique Skinner explains that while most people aren’t too concerned about hair removal in the winter months, it’s actually the perfect time to think about trying laser hair removal and other laser and IPL skin treatments.

“We recommend clients start their laser journey with us in winter, as the skin is less likely to be tanned - which makes the laser more effective,” she said.

“You’re also less likely to be going out into the sun or into a hot environment straight after a laser treatment in winter, which means you’re less likely to experience harsh side effects after your treatment session.”

With advances in laser technology meaning treatment can be tailored to the client’s specific skin concerns, level of skin sensitivity and desired result, Laser and IPL treatments have come a long way.

“When many of us think of the term “laser”, we associate it with hair removal. And while that’s one of the treatments available at Redgum Medical Centre in Corowa, there are a host of other options available,” Ms Skinner said.

“Laser and IPL is a non-invasive way to permanently treat conditions such as post-surgical scarring, acne scarring, stretch marks (striae), wrinkles and pigmentation, cherry angiomas, rosacea, fine lines and more.”

For clients who are concerned about trying laser for the first time, you’re in safe hands with Redgum Skin Clinic.

All IPL/laser treatments (excluding hair removal) must first attend a half hour consultation to have your treatment approved by one of the on-site doctors, and they use a Skintele Melanin Reader to identify your skin type.

The Skintele Melanin Reader is the first FDA-approved melanin reader and helps the team ensure your hair removal plan is optimised for your skin type.

Ms Skinner said the facility has received great feedback since opening their doors in November 2021.

“We’ve had amazing results with patients who have commenced their skin treatment journey with us,” she said.

“We offer a unique and personalised experience and build a great one on one relationship with our patients, so that they can feel confident every time they walk through the doors.”

For those wanting to take advantage of the winter months to tackle hair removal with laser, Redgum Skin Clinic offers pre-paid packages of 6 or 10 treatments, with Afterpay and Zip Pay options available.

Redgum Skin Clinic is located at 30 Evelyn St in Corowa. They are currently welcoming new patients.

The clinic offers a range of skin treatment options from skin cancer surveillance, IPL hair removal, scar removal, IPL skin treatments, laser pigmentation removal, and skin analysis.
