What is CosmeticCulture?

CosmeticCulture is the place to go for visible improvement to the skin. We provide the most advanced cosmetic medical treatments that create a lasting improvement in the way your skin looks, acts, and feels. Our medically-trained aestheticians, who also happen to be registered nurses, and our plastic surgeon, are skilled in both the art and the science of treating your skin.

What can I expect on my first visit to CosmeticCulture?

The first part of your consultation is with your CosmeticCulture consultant who will introduce you to skinscan, our advanced imaging system that provides an in depth analysis of your skin. By taking images of your skin, your CosmeticCulture consultant will create a skinscan report that measures and analyses the surface and subsurface of your skin’s current condition focusing on six different areas of concern, spots, pores, bacteria level, wrinkles, evenness (colour variations in skin tone) and sun damage, you will get to take a copy of this home.

Next you will meet with your aesthetician, who will develop your skinscription, your customised plan of treatments and products based on your skinscan report and the improvements you desire. Then you can have your first treatment! You should plan to be here – 60 mins for your first visit, and remember subsequent visits are based on lunch time, no downtime philosophy, so depending on your treatment, your visits can be anywhere between 20 mins to an hour.

What is skinscription?

A customised plan, specific to your needs, of cosmetic medical treatments and products designed to create a visible improvement to your skin.

What treatments do CosmeticCulture offer?

Depending on your skin and its needs, your aesthetician may recommend an essential treatment to get rid of dullness, lighten sun spots, and even out skin tone; a laser treatment to remove sun spots, broken capillaries, or unwanted hair; anti-wrinkle injections to remove frown lines, furrows, and crow’s feet; cosmetic fillers to reshape lips, fill in laugh lines, re-contour hollows and redefine the jaw line.
