Erase Aesthetic Services
Many lasers have been invented to help minimise and improve skin concerns. Clear + Brilliant is categorised as a gentle laser resurfacing treatment, invented by Solta Medical, who also produce the Fraxel Laser.
We have introduced Clear and Brilliant into Erase as a conventional step up from microdermabrasion and for people who seek improvement in texture and tone without the need of worrying about downtime. Clear + Brilliant will give that fresh glow back to your skin for much longer than a fruit peel or microdermabrasion.
One of our consultant physicians specialises in medical management of acne. Where necessary, hormone assays can be carried out or any possible underlying medical causes can be investigated.
What are Wrinkles?
Many facial wrinkles occur when we use our muscles to form facial expressions. When we are young our skin springs back to its initial position but as we get older the wrinkles remain.
This is a non surgical procedure where a small amount of natural purified protein is injected into the wrinkle causing muscles to relax. This not only reduces lines and wrinkles, it “softens” the appearance and reduces facial tension.
Only experienced and fully trained medical practitioners carry out these treatments at Erase.
What are Birth Marks?
Birthmarks are vascular malformations in the skin. Most commonly these are known as “port wine stains” or “strawberry birthmarks” (haemangiomas).
Birthmarks can be treated effectively with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or vascular lasers. The energy targets the colour in the birthmark, causing the blood vessels to shut down.
The Dermal fillers used at Erase are primarily Hyaluronic Acid base, which means that it is naturally digested by the body. They help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance, as the material is injected into areas where it needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer. Dermal fillers come in different thicknesses, and in general, the thicker the product, the deeper it is injected into the dermal layer of the skin to help plump out fine to deep lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (smile line), fill pitted scars or to give plumpness to cheeks, build a nose bridge, reduce neck and cleavage lines, and help the sunken look under the eyes.
Hyaluronic acid dermal filler is a naturally occurring substance found in the spaces between the cells of body tissues in all animals. It has already been used widely in general medicine to help eye surgeons perform cataract operations, and for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement. It is estimated that 30 million patients around the world have been treated with some form of hyaluronic acid.
What is Lip Rejuvenation
Exposure to sunlight, and our lifestyle, cause natural substances such as collagen and hyaluronic acid to diminish over time. These provide the skin with structure and volume so any decrease leads to sagging and wrinkling of the skin. Over time our lips thin and the corners of our mouths can begin to droop. The cupid’s bow flattens out and lips lose their youthful fullness. Vertical lip lines that can cause lipstick bleed may also begin to appear.
Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to your lips, to improve border definition and to create a stronger cupids bow.
What are facial vessels?
Facial Vessles are made up of many blood vessels grouped together in the skin.
Small spider veins often appear on the face and other parts of the body as we age or as a result of an accident or medication.
We treat Facial Vessels using Intense Pulsed Light(IPL™), which is a breakthrough in medical technology for fading spider veins on the face and other parts of the body.
IPL’s unique and flexible design helps your technician customise treatment to your specific needs. Treatment is safe and effective.
Fraxel is available at Erase Aesthetic Services in Malvern
Fraxel Laser is a new technique in skin rejuvenation using fractional photothermolysis. It provides many of the benefits of invasive skin resurfacing (previously performed with traditional CO2 & erbium lasers) with fewer side effects and less “down time”. It uses pin point laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin surface to eliminate old, damaged cells. This treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
The new Fraxel Laser RE: STORE DUAL has the advantage of using two different wavelengths.
The1927nm more effectively targets superficial skin layers achieving accelerated clearance of stubborn pigment such as melasma, post inflammatory pigment, and sun damage, whereas the 1550nm wavelength is used for deeper rejuvenation such as treating wrinkles, scar remodeling & for acne scarring.
What is Hair Reduction?
The means of treating unsightly hairs on body and face has become an ever increasing demand for both male and female. Erase Aesthetic Services have been utilising medical Laser and Light based modalities in a safe and effective manner for over 13 years.
We have different methods of hair reduction treatment, since every individual has different hair types (density and colour) and skin colour. The best way to choose the right treatment depends on various aspects including machine integrity, quality assurance, qualification, and expertise of individual skin types, which make a significant difference in the outcome of your treatment.
You can trust that our clinicians have extensive training and qualification in treating different hair and skin conditions. Our dermal clinicians hold Bachelor in Science Degrees for Dermal Therapies, degrees which are based on dermal sciences, laser physics and wound care management.
Our machines and technologies being used for medical professions are approved by FDA (US)/TGA (Australia), and modalities undergo regular maintenance by specific engineers of laser companies.
What is Hyperhydrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating beyond the normal needs of body temperature control. It is particularly common in the armpits and palms of the hands. The cause is unknown although some medical researchers believe it is related to overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system.
Our medical consultants can advise you on various therapies including:
- Injections under the arms – (this has excellent results lasting up to 6 months).
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory disorder characterized by facial redness, dilated capillaries, a burning or tingling sensation and sometimes lesions that look like acne (papules).
The common triggers are sun exposure, certain chemicals in alcohol, temperature changes (i.e. sauna, heaters, air conditioning), hot and spicy food, hormonal changes, exercise and emotional factors (i.e. stress, anger, laughter, crying, embarrassment).
There is no cure for rosacea, but the symptoms can be controlled effectively with an individual treatment plan and a Jan Marini Skincare Management program.
The treatment of choice is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). This treatment destroys unsightly blood vessels so they fade and slowly disappear.
Topical agents with anti-inflammatory / antibacterial effects can keep rosacea well under control even during trigger events. Even daily use of an effective sunscreen / antioxidant can result in significant improvement.
What is Pigmentation
Melanocytes are specialised cells within the epidermis which produce a pigment called melanin. This is distributed throughout the epidermis in small bundles called melanosomes to protect the DNA of skin cells from UV damage. That’s why sun exposure darkens our skin – the more melanocytes in our skin, the easier we tan.
Damage to these cells caused by excessive UV exposure, thermal injury (ie. a burn) or inflammation can result in them behaving abnormally.
Pixel Laser System
This is a type of “fractionated” Erbium laser therapy which stimulates new collagen growth and improves the skin’s texture and tone. It can be used on all skin types, given that a patient is prepared with topical pigment inhibitors and retinoids.
<h2>Photo Rejuvenation Treatment at Erase Aesthetic Services in Malvern</h2>
Damage to skin from UV radiation can manifest in a variety of skin changes including red blemishes, spider veins and brown spots. Photo rejuvenation is a method widely used for reducing unwanted dyschromia or discouloration in the skin, to give your skin a flawless complexion.
Photo rejuvenation is performed using a Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, and sometimes a combination of Long pulse Laser and Q-switch Laser. A series of treatments results in a significant reduction in fines lines, unwanted pigmentation, redness and an improvement in the texture and tone of the skin. IPL is popularly used in areas such as the face, neck, decollatage, and hands.
What is Photodynamic Therapy?
PhotoDynamic Therapy is a procedure which treats various skin conditions. We call it a “Turbo-Charged Photorejuvenation”. By applying amino-levulinic acid to the skin then exposing it to a particular wavelength of light, abnormal skin cells are destroyed. This makes it particularly effective for treating sun-damage, pre-cancerous skin lesions and acne scarring.
Microdermabrasion mechanically exfoliates the skin & loosens the superficial dead cells, stimulating a “turnover” effect which significantly improves the texture & luminosity of the skin.
Microdermabrasion & Anti Aging Collagen Infusion
Hyaluronic Acid is applied in mask form for longer lasting hydration. Also temporarily plumps up fine lines so the perfect treatment prior to a special occasion.
Helps remove impacted debris in the skin follicles which leads to faster lesion clearance.
Q-switch Nd YAG laser for tattoo removal
At Erase Aesthetic Services Malvern, we have been offering Tattoo Removal for over ten years. Just like we offer Laser and IPL for the treatment for skin resurfacing or reducing unwanted pigmentation and redness, we offer a separate modality to specifically remove tattoos. There have been numerous methods medically practised over the years.
Methods of tattoo removal have evolved from superficial excision through dermabrasion, surgical removal, and CO2 laser vaporization to a more modernly based laser treatment known as Q-switch lasers.
At Erase we use the Q-switch Nd:YAG laser for tattoo removal, this has been proven to be most effective form of tattoo removal and requires fewer treatments.
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue which form when the body heals itself following injury. In the skin, surgery or acne can also leave unsightly scars.
Scars are comprised of collagen deposited in a disorganised pattern. Some scars become raised and red (hypertrophic scars) or can proliferate beyond the borders of the original wound (keloid scars).
We’ve seen solid clinical evidence that scars can be managed very effectively with Fraxel laser.

Venus Freeze is highly effective in achieving skin tightening and firmness, without pain or down time.
It is an internationally patented medical device, with FDA approval on wrinkle reduction and skin tightening.
Dermal heating via radio frequency and magnetic pulsing is clinically proven to cause microscopic changes to the tissue and collagen contraction. Result may vary from patient to patient, however subsequent collagen re-modelling will occur over 3-6 months after your initial treatment.
What are Leg Veins?
Leg veins or varicose veins are visible bulging veins most commonly seen in the lower legs.
Human heart pumps blood to legs through arteries. After supplying oxygen and nutrients to the legs, blood returns to the heart through the veins. This upward flow of the blood is caused by the muscles in the legs.
Each time calf and thigh muscles contract while a person is walking, the veins deep inside his leg get squeezed. One-way valves help prevent blood from flowing back down the veins.
Blood from the outer layers of your legs flows into superficial veins. It is then connected to deeper veins inside the leg by perforator veins. When blood doesn’t flow properly from the superficial veins to the deep veins, pressure builds up in the superficial veins.
This result in blood collecting/pooling in the veins, and these are called varicose veins/leg veins.
Causes of leg veins
Though the exact reason why leg veins develop is not fully understood, it is commonly believed that is caused due to weak veins. If a person has weak vein walls, this causes the valves in his veins to expand and separate, thus damaging them.
This damage to the valves prevents blood to travel up the veins as easily as it should and results in the leg veins.
Some other causes of the leg veins are old age, obesity, long standing or sitting, and pregnancy.
Varicose and Spider Veins
The causes of varicose vein and spider veins are not entirely understood, however it is known that a weakness of the valves in the veins allows the backward flow of blood. This causes a build up of pressure within the vessel resulting in bulging or bursting of vessel walls.
Sclerotherapy is a popular method of eliminating varicose veins and spider veins. Small injections of a “thrombolytic” solution cause the veins to shut down so they are no longer obvious through the skin. This is particularly effective for superficial spider veins, which fade gradually over the following weeks.
