Frosted Away

It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops and love handles.
We often see patients who come for liposuction to remove stubborn love handles or fatty deposits on the stomach or inner thighs, but sometimes surgery can be an expensive and excessive option. There had to be a more practical solution and now we have found it!

It’s called CoolSculpting and it’s offered exclusively in Canberra by The CAPS Clinic […]

Hair Removal :: 5 Star Difference

We have all heard the term “pain-free” but how realistic is this when it comes to hair removal? 

The reality is- when using a laser or light therapy treatment to destroy unwanted hair the follicle must be heated to the point where is destroyed !  Even specifically targeting the follicle there will always be collateral heat to the tissue surrounding the follicle and this equates to pain!

A pain free treatment is something we have never promoted in our clinic because put simply, we did not believe […]

Quick-Fix Myth

In today’s fast-paced world we all lead very busy lives. In an age where everything is so accessible, and technology is constantly improving we’ve come to expect that things will happen quickly. In some cases, this is not always a good thing.

Sometimes you have to be patient, especially when it comes to skin rejuvenation as a lot of the concerns you have, are an accumulation of years of damage. So even though this technology is effective we can not expect our skin to be fixed […]

The Liquid Facelift

Reading through the cosmetic magazines I am dismayed to find the promises being made to unsuspecting patients of the benefits of a ‘liquid facelift’. It is difficult to comment about this new fad without sounding like I am protecting my own territory, however, I also feel it is important for patients to understand exactly what they are getting themselves into and what are their alternatives.

At CAPS we inject three different types of anti-wrinkle products. All of these products are well researched and supported by their suppliers. […]
