fullybooked200Due to strong demand and Dr Tomlinson's sabbatical in February through April 2018 inclusive we are unable to accommodate new "See and Treat" bookings or new appointments with Dr Tomlinson until July 2018. Infant ear molding appointments and Dermapen treatments remain available with nurse Beth. If you wish to be placed on our "Waiting for an Appointment" list to see Dr Tomlinson in May 2018 our receptionists will ask you to provide us with your doctor's referral and registration forms, as all new appointment requests are triaged in order to balance demand and supply.

Lycogel® is a range of breathable camouflage foundations and concealers that provide skin coverage and therapeutic results. The product conceals skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, vitiligo and rosacea, making it an ideal makeup base for people who suffer from skin problems that are difficult to disguise with normal makeup.

Lycogel® was originally developed as an effective cover-up for patients directly after cosmetic procedures such as fractional laser, skin needling and microdermabrasion. We apply it after Dermapen3® treatments so that you can leave our rooms without visible redness, protected from the sun's rays through Lycogel®'s non-chemical SPF30+ protection. Lycogel® helps to reduce your downtime and maximise your treatment results, and many women like the product so much they use it as their everyday foundation. Lycogel® is water resistant for 90 minutes so it maintains its coverage while you swim or work out.

Lycogel® camouflage foundation comes in 12 shades: Ivory, Cream, Beige, Taupe, Pearl, Caramel, Honey, Sand, Almond, Tawny, Amber and Cocoa. 

This video explains how to apply Lycogel® - the best application is with a wedge sponge, but you can apply with clean fingertips or a professional brush:
