Skin is probably a really clever invention, but from a layperson’s perspective, there’s a lot of stuff that can go wrong. Ageing, pigmentation, acne, scarring, blocked pores, too oily, not oily enough–if skin was a new car, you wouldn’t buy it. The maintenance would put you off and you’d go buy a Prius instead. Enter James Vivian Dermal Therapies (JVDT for short), a boutique skin clinic in Prahran that’s getting a reputation for results (just check out their Facebook reviews).
JVDT prefers a non-invasive approach to skincare (basically, surgery’s out). They offer state-of-the-art laser genesis, but if you’re uncomfortable with shooting lasers into your face, it’s no biggie. There’s a range of treatments on offer, including gentle peels and IPL face rejuvenation. Their Signature Treatment combines a variety of laser and exfoliate techniques to leave your skin looking like it should: clean, supple and baby-bottom smooth. Pretty much what you’d expect from a guy known in the industry as ‘the face whisperer’ (true story).
If you prefer a more ‘at home’ approach to skincare (ie. doing it while eating Cheezels and watching Legally Blonde) JVDT has a carefully curated online store where you can pick up cleansers, toners and moisturisers.
