Our consultation process
Before we begin any treatment procedure, we will get to know you. This will include discussing your medical health, your facial and skin concerns, your usual skincare routine and any areas that you would like to improve.
We firmly believe that success of any treatment is a joint role. Whilst we will undertake the medical procedures, basic skin care and health relies on you. With this in mind, we will make sure that you understand some basics about your skin. This will include learning a little about the skin structure, skin changes that occur with ageing and how at-home skin care can influence the result.
Observ Digital Face Skin Analysis
Many skin conditions on the surface, originate from the deeper skin layers and are often not diagnosed and treated effectively because they simply cannot be seen with the naked eye. The Observ is a facial skin analysis system that allows us to really look at the condition of your face, and analyse the concerns that you have. The information gathered will include any pigmentation, pore size, skin roughness, wrinkles, bacteria and sun damage in order to design a corrective treatment programme.
AquaGlo Facial Treatment
To begin your skin journey, we can assist your skin health by undertaking a very hydrating and cleansing Aqua-facial. An Aqua-facial helps to gently remove dead skin cells, and impurities such as blackheads, allowing skin care treatments and products to perform efficiently.
After this treatment, your face will be clearer and feel smoother. The Aqua-facial is non abrasive and a pleasant procedure. Once undertaken, any further facial corrective treatment and products will be able to function properly since debris and impurities are dislodged. Quite simply, you will get better results.
Radiofrequency procedures tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are a perfect treatment for those not wanting to undergo a cosmetic procedure such as a facelift.
Radiofrequency works by heating the collagen fibres in the skin and the underlying tissue. This not only causes the tightening of existing collagen but also stimulates the production of new collagen which will continue to tighten the skin for several months after the treatment.
Venus Viva Radiofrequency treatment is able to treat:
• All scars, including acne
• Face and Neck skin tightening
• Wrinkles, and reduce pore size
• General skin laxity, elasticity loss & rejuvenation
• Cellulite on the stomach, arms, thighs and buttocks.

FACIAL REJUVENATION, SKIN TIGHTENING & SCAR TREATMENT
Fractional treatments allow uniform, safe and relatively pain free treatments with little or no downtime. There can be up to a 60% improvement of skin texture, fine lines and scar appearance in just 3 visits. Dr. D'Anna will discuss the best treatment options for you during your skin analysis consultation.
Dermafrac is also called Collagen Induction Therapy because it stimulates the skin to naturally produce more collagen. Dermafrac is an exciting new treatment combining micro-needling and deep tissue infusion. The "New micro-needling" treatment without the downtime.
Micro-needling infusion therapy is an advanced aesthetic treatment used to target many skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots and pigmentation, open pores, congested skin, mild acne scaring and dry and dehydrated skin.
Dermafrac uses a roller which contains 180 superfine needles to stimulate collagen production and cell renewal, helping to plump, firm and smooth the skin. As the roller creates the micro channels in your skin the Dermafrac system simultaneously enables the infusion of a potent serum to boost the impact of the needling treatment. This effectively leaves your skin with a glowing complexion. LED light therapy promotes collagen stimulation, suppresses inflammation, reduces irritation and redness and reduces bacteria living underneath the skin.
We always treat the skin in a four stage approach. Included in the Dermafrac treatment you will receive;
~ Crystal Free Microdermabrasion
~ Product infusion suited to your needs
~ LED light therapy
Dermafrac is the perfect treatment which has instant results, with no down time leaving the skin radiant and glowing. See the Dermafrac VIDEO here
DERMAPEN SKIN-NEEDLING & PRP TREATMENT.
Skin needling, also called microneedling therapy or collagen induction therapy (CIT), stimulates your own skin to thicken and correct fine lines, wrinkles, scars and pigmentation.
Collagen Induction Therapy has proved to be a simple and fast method for safely treating wrinkles and scars, including acne scars. Because the epidermis remains intact, the procedure can be repeated safely and is also suited to regions where laser treatments and deep peels are not typically performed. CIT is now becoming widely used as a treatment for photo-aged skin to improve the skin’s appearance and quality, and to improve or even prevent scarring.

A great advantage of DERMAPEN Skin-needling is that it can be used on all skin types including darker skin types. People of Asian, Indian, African, and European background are able to have this treatment with less risk pigmentation changes in comparison to heat-producing treatments. The DERMAPEN can also penetrate very deeply if needed, so that collagen can be stimulated on deeper acne scars and also on dermal pigmentation. Skin needling generally requires several treatments.

Anti-wrinkle Injections are a safe and effective means of reducing wrinkles. The Anti-wrinkle solution is a neuromodular protein that temporarily stops the nerve from sending messages to the muscles. As a result, the muscles that cause the skin to crease cannot move, so the overlying skin becomes smoother and smoother.
The anti-wrinkle injections are used strategically to relax certain muscles to create an eyebrow lift, reduce a gummy smile, slim the jawline, and to stop the downward pull of muscles on the mouth and neck. Other commonly treated areas are the frown, forehead lines and crows feet.
We can selectively target the muscle that causes the lip to rise to even out an asymmetry, or help to keep the lip in a more relaxed position so that your smile shows much less gum.
Dermal fillers are used to plump the skin, filling out creases and boosting your facial features. Popular procedures are augmentation of the cheek, chin & lips, correcting minor asymmetries, and filling the nose-to-lip creases.
The dermal fillers used by Dr. D'Anna are safe and TGA approved, being composed of a naturally occurring skin sugar (HA). Procedures are comfortable with topical or local anaesthesia provided. We also use cannula delivery of the filler for lip augmentation, nasolabial fold reduction and tear trough reduction, which results in less bruising and quicker recovery.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment primarily used to shape and proportion the face, making them a very powerful tool in facial rejuvenation and enhancement. At iDental we can choose from the wide range of treatment options and dermal filler products to suit the desired outcome. The main treatment areas for dermal fillers are lips, cheeks, tear troughs, chin, nose, brows, nasolabial folds and mouth corners. Dermal fillers can address wrinkles, or treatment can be combined with anti-wrinkle injections.

Jowls, sagging necks and cheeks are common complaints as we get older. Thread lifts help to pull the skin back up on the face, helping to reduce the skin sag. A thread lift is a minimally invasive and safe procedure. Polypropylene threads (TGA approved) have small projections, called cogs, that help to pull back the skin.
What are the advantages of a thread lift?
~ Minimally invasive procedure
~ Minimal bruising and scarring and minimal recovery time
~ Affordable procedure
~ Short-duration procedure
~ Minimal risk because of use of local anaesthetic
~ Appropriate for mild sagging tissue
What are types of Threads are there?
There are two main types:
1. Lifting Threads: used to lift sagging facial tissue
2. Revitalizing Threads: used to rejuvenate and thicken fragile and aged skin.
Both thread types can be used to improve your result.
Can absorbable Threads be combined with other cosmetic treatments?
At iDental, we routinely combine threads with dermal fillers and other skin resurfacing procedures as part of our non-surgical makeovers.

OMBRÉ TATTOO: For a more subtle, soft pencil or powder shadow effect through the brows, the Ombré Eyebrow Tattoo technique closely mimics the appearance of more conventional brow makeup. This brow tattoo technique is particularly popular with both our blonde and more senior clients who wish to achieve gracefully arched and beautifully colored, yet softly defined brows without the use of individual hair strokes.
BLENDED BROW: The blended brow is a mixture of both the feather and the powder techniques. Feather strokes are used at the beginning of the brow to create a soft natural look, subtly blending into a powder brow to give more definition.

A chemical peel is a skin care technique in which a chemical solution is applied to facial skin, to undertake a liquid exfoliation of the skin. The depth of the peel differs, according to the dermal therapist and the peel used to provide the exfoliation.. A chemical peel provides facial rejuvenation benefits by removing the skin's top layers to reduce the appearance of sun damage, uneven pigmentation, and wrinkles. Chemical peels differ according to their ingredients and the strength of their peeling properties. Light peels are administered to give the skin a fresher look. Stronger peels can also be used to remove skin to a greater depth to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
TCA peels are most commonly used:
~ to reduce brown spots and age spots
~ to improve the texture of leathery, sun damaged skin and impart more glow
~ to improve melasma
~ to treat some types of acne
~ to reduce fine lines
TCA is a non-toxic chemical (trichloracetic acid), which has been used to perform skin peels for over 20 years. It is a relative of vinegar (acetic acid.) When TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top layers of cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days to one week. When the old skin is peeled off, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin, which has a smoother texture and more even color.
A TCA peel is considered a medium-strength chemical peel. The TCA peel may be used on the face, neck, and back of the hands. Many other types of peels can only be used on the face. The TCA peel has deeper exfoliating effects than those obtainable from glycolic acid peels, so the result is more dramatic. Most people will experience initial frosting and warmth in the face. This is followed by a reddening of the skin once the warmth normalises, and this may last for about 24-48 hours. From day 3-5 the skin will physically start peeling, revealing amazing skin underneath that is less pigmented, smoother, dewier, and so soft to touch. Dr D'Anna personally has a TCA peel regularly as this peel provides her with amazing results.
JESSNER PEEL (for the treatment of Acne)
Jessner’s solution induces a superficial peeling of the skin and is particularly effective for oily and acne conditions. One of the main ingredients of Jessner’s is salicylic acid that deeply penetrates the skin and removes congested sebum and dead skin cells. This solution may be applied in layers to provide a variety of results.
Jessner Peels are great for:
~Visually retexturise thickened or oily skin
~Will improve the appearance of large pores
~Exfoliation of the skin’s upper layer allows improved absorption of products
~Excellent for treatment of comedones (blackheads) and acne prone skin
~Effective on acne prone areas on the body such as back, arms & chest
~Effective on follicular barbae (in grown hairs)

PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION OPTIONS
This is an effective method of permanently removing hair. Electrolysis work on all hair colour and types. This is the answer to remove those chin, lip and facial hairs that keep popping up. Electrolysis is definitely a tried and true option for those opting for permanent hair removal and can often be the best alternative to IPL for people with blonde, white, red and fine hairs or dark skin types, or for those with only a small amount of hair to be removed.
Electrolysis is a cosmetic procedure developed many years ago, and many advancements have occurred during that time. Electrolysis doesn't just remove the hair -- it destroys the hair follicle that produces the hair. Electrolysis is a fairly natural procedure. While other methods like creams may use chemicals, electrolysis works with the natural saline and water deep in the skin to destroy the hair follicle. A hair follicle destroyed by electrolysis will never produce a hair (or bother you) again. Thanks to its destructive success, electrolysis is considered permanent by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Medical Association (AMA)
The Energist Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), is a breakthrough in effective in hair reduction and skin rejuvenation technology. Research has shown that IPL Systems, are producing better results than the laser systems originally available. IPL Technology is non-invasive and treats growing hair, pigmentation, sun damage, facial redness, broken capillaries, acne scarring, enlarged pores and fine lines. IPL penetrates the epidermis, targeting the dermis where melanin, haemoglobin and collagen reside.
The IPL Treatment process:
After a full consultation with a trained therapist, a comprehensive treatment programme can be developed to match your needs and requirements. Depending upon which treatments are to be undertaken the basic procedure will stay the same:
- 1. The area to be treated will be prepared with gel
- 2. The IPL applicator head will be stepped across to ensure complete coverage.
- 3. Hair that is in the "growing" phase is damaged or stopped from growing by the IPL. About 20-40% if hair in any one area is in the growing phase, so retreating the same area will be required.
- 4. Retreating areas will be required to disable more and more hair follicles that are in the growing phase.
