openforbusinessCOVID news: Elective surgery restrictions have been lifted and we will resume all elective surgeries from 28 September. Please note that all patients who are scheduled for elective surgery admission are required to undertake a COVID test, to obtain a negative ("not infected") result prior to admission, and to self-isolate from the time of test to admission. As Epworth Cliveden remains indefinitely closed Dr Tomlinson does not have Epworth operating lists at this time, but her operating lists at The Avenue and Glenferrie continue. 

DrTomlinsonvideoconsultationWe are seeing patients via videoconsultation where it is clinically appropriate to do to maximise the patient and staff safety under the new COVID normal. Enhanced hygiene meaures in our rooms include acrylic screens, masks, hand sanitiser, face shields and physical distancing-related changes; long (48 minute) consultations and our See and Treat service have been adjusted under our COVIDsafe plan to include the use of telehealth to reduce face to face time.

Victorians are in this together and together we will get through this. Thank you for your understanding as our community works through these unprecedented times together (last updated: 22 September 2020).

DP Dermaceuticals Hyla Active™

An intensive moisture infusion serum that delivers the feeling of deep hydration, comfort and repair. Hyla Active restores harmony to all skin types and conditions. We use Hyla Active as part of all Dermapen3 treatments. 

As with all DP Dermaceuticals, Hyla Active™ is suitable for pre and post-operative skin preparation and maintenance for procedures including skin needling, microdermabrasion, laser, chemical peels and cosmetic injectables. DP Dermaceuticals are meticulously crafted with rejuvenating and replenishing correctives including power peptides, multi-vitamins, potent antioxidants and organically sourced botanicals. All products have high levels of HylaFuse™ Complex which is clinically proven to be absorbed 150% more effectively than other forms of Hyaluronic Acid. Formulations containing the HylaFuse™ Complex continue delivering water and active ingredients to the skin for up to eight hours after application - even when they feel dry to touch.

Key Benefits

  • Forms a 'second skin' to deliver immediate effect
  • Infuses a feeling of deep hydration, comfort and repair
  • Reduces and diffuses the appearance of visible readness and inflammation
  • Promotes regeneration and repair for a younger-looking skin
  • Plumps and smooths the signs of environmental ageing
  • Can be used as an oil-free primer for flawless make-up application and increased foundation longevity
  • Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for a flawless smooth finish

Key Ingredients

HylaFuse Complex: A triple weighted Hyaluronic Acid complex that effortlessly absorbs into the skin to promote maximum hydration, moisture infusion and long lasting comfort.

Zinc: A potent anti-inflammatory minteral that promotes wound healing, repair and collagen formation. Allows the skin to skin recover faster and stronger when integrity is compromised. 

Vitamin B5: An active vitamin necessary for tissue repair while refortifying barrier function. The complexion's defences feel better equipped and protected. 

Method of Use

After cleansing, apply 2-3 pumps of Hyla Active to dry skin. Massage lightly until absorbed. Follow with the application of an appropriate sun protection.

For chronically dehydrated or dry skin, Antioxidant Cocktail or enriching Vitamin Rich Repair may be applied and layered over Hyla Active
