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).

Vitamin Rich Repair™

Written by Dr Jill Tomlinson on .

vitaminrichrepairDP Dermaceuticals Vitamin Rich Repair™

A replenishing solution that promotes intensive repair and structure. Vitamin Rich Repair™ visibly strengthens vulnerable complexions. Suitable for all skin types to treat aged, sun-damaged, sensitised and post-operative skin conditions. We apply Vitamin Rich Repair™ after all Dermapen3™ treatments. 

As with all DP Dermaceuticals, Vitamin Rich Repair™ 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

  • Nourishes and comforts for increased resiliency
  • Softens the appearance of fine and deep lines
  • Visibly firms and lifts atrophied contours
  • Promotes intensive rebuilding and repair
  • Equalises the effects of imbalanced function

Key Ingredients

Vitamin A Esters: Skin compatible, active derivatives of Vitamin A. Cellular activity becomes regulated as collagen and elastin production are stimulated. The skin functions more effectively for a clearer, brighter and clarified complexion. 

Vitamin E: A potent antioxidant that reinforces barrier function and protection. The skin is aremed against environmental aggression for a visibly stronger and resilient integrity. 

Neodermyl: A patented power copper peptide that is clinically proven to revitalise aged cells to stimulate refreshed and renewed collagen production. The skin is visibly plumped with increased volume and firmness. 

Resveratrol: A potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant sourced from the skin of red grapes. Resveratrol boasts antibiotic qualities with free radical fighting abilities more powerful than vitamin C or idebenone. 

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

Method of Use

After cleansing the skin with Micro Derm, apply 2-3 pumps of Vitamin Rich Repair to dry skin. Massage lightly until absorbed. Follow with an application of the appropriate sun protection. 

For chronically aged or sensitised skin, Antioxidant Cocktail or Hyla Active may be applied before Vitamin Rich Repair
