Show Some Skin

Ever since the Sex and The City episode when Samantha received an extreme facial, I’ve run a mile at the thought of getting laser or a chemical peel. But then I met James Vivian.

James is a Dermal Therapist who established Melbourne Aesthetic Health Care and is nothing short of a skin genius. He specialises in the science and biology behind radiant skin – and that’s why he gets such incredible results.

After only one session, I realise that all the other facials I’ve been getting are just fluff. They smell nice, they feel nice, they leave me feeling super relaxed, but a week after I’ve received it, my skin looks no different.


Following an extensive consultation about my skin concerns, James and I decided that the MAHC Signature Luminescence Treatment would be the way to go. Using a unique combination of laser and topically applied active ingredients, this treatment has left my skin in the best shape it’s ever been in – if I do say so myself!

In the weeks since I saw James, my skin tone and texture has continued to improve. In fact, I keep getting asked what foundation I’m wearing when for the first time in years I’ve ditched the foundation, bronzer and blush. Just a little concealer under my eyes and the rest is me! Plus, my dastardly pigmentation is finally a non-issue.

And the best bit? There is absolutely no down time with this non-trauma treatment. No redness. No flaking. No doesn’t-she-look-like-Samantha-in-that-Sex-and-the-City-episode-sore!

So, after saying I’d never try laser or a chemical peel, I’m happy to admit I’m wrong, wrong, wrong. Thank goodness James showed me the (laser) light!
