Its no doubt the reason behind her own and her clinics incredible success.
There are very good reasons why vitality has won the Australian Spa / Salon of the Year award for the past five years in a row!
Perhaps it is the extensive selection of seriously effective treatment options ranging from medical grade peels and micro-dermabrasion to IPL and Laser procedures, dermal rollers or injectables and fillers. Your initial skin consultation includes an assessment utilising the latest in VISIA photographic analysis. The result is an individualised treatment programme specifically for your personal requirements. The clinic specialises in procedures for photo-damage, acne, pigmentation and ageing skin conditions.

Laser genesis skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women. Now you can have a more youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine line wrinkles. The Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen.
The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.
Laser Genesis clients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.
Clients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment. Before the actual Laser Genesis treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. Your clinician will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.
The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your clinician.
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your clinician for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.
Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a creamier, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
Because every person’s individual requirements will be different, each laser treatment program will begin with a comprehensive assessment by our trained Dermal Clinician (BHSc). During this initial consultation a quotation of cost and treatment duration will be explained. We do not use cheap machines, which may cause complications and usually require a greater number of treatments to achieve results.
We use the most powerful Medical Grade Laser hair reduction system effective on all skin types and darker skins for both men and woman with proven research clinical results. A first of its kind, this laser has an advanced cooling system to reduce the risk of burns or pigment changes.
Developed by the pioneers of laser hair removal technology in 2000, excel HR™ is the next generation premium laser hair removal technology for women and men of all skin types, even tanned skin patients, available all-year-round.
More coverage than ever before
excel HR’s signature truPulse™ technology delivers consistent and sustained energy in each and every pulse—efficiently reducing the number of treatments required.
Superior patient comfort
excel HR significantly improves patient comfort by offering continuous cooling before, during and after each laser pulse. In a patient preference study measuring comfort and satisfaction, 100% of patients chose excel HR laser hair removal over a competitive laser hair removal procedure.*
True laser technology
Unlike limitations of older technologies that use low-powered energy sources like pulsed light, excel HR only uses true, premium, laser sources.
The total number of treatments varies based on the area treated. Typically, 4-5 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart is recommended.
Laser and other energy-based hair removal requires multiple treatments because hair grows in different phases. Hair can take 6-12 weeks for it to grow from root to surface—this growth stage is known as the anagen stage and this is the perfect time to receive laser hair removal. You known when you are due for your next treatment session when hair in the treated area begins to grow back. It is very important to stick with the treatment schedule that your practitioners suggests—missing a treatment could allow your hair to enter the next stage where hair begins to detach from the hair follicle which can increase the number of treatments originally required.
Due to excel HR’s superior technology, exceptional results are achievable on all hair types—fine or course. Commonly requested areas include underarms, legs, bikini area as well as men’s chest and back.
*Packages are available at a discounted price.
*Prices are a guide only and could change according to area parts. Ask our friendly team about purchasing laser hair reduction package gift cards.
Because every person’s requirements will be different, each Laser treatment programme will begin with a full assessment by a trained laser clinician. During this initial consultation a quotation of cost and treatment duration will be offered.
Our laser clinicians use the most advanced technology using the Cutera 1064 Laser and Limelight system.
This Medical Grade laser includes hair removal, skin rejuvenation, pigment spot removal and veins on the face.
At Vitality Laser & Skin Clinic our system will provide superior results.
We do not use cheap machines, which may cause complications and often results in requiring a greater number of treatments.
Treatment of Skin Redness, Tiny Veins, Brown Spots and Sun Damage.
The LimeLight Difference.
The Cutera LimeLight delivers a non-invasive light treatment that can be customized for different skin tones and aging skin conditions.
The result is an exceptionally effective skin rejuvenation treatment with minimal discomfort.
What is the LimeLight Facial?
The LimeLight Facial is a, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photo damage.
What areas can be treated?
The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and decollete with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
What does the treatment do?
By selecting Program A, B or C, your clinician can customise your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
What do treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, clients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.
How many treatments will I need?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Mineral Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.
When will I see results?
Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply physical sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.
Redness and premature aging is a major issue with our skin here in Australia. The combination of the laser genesis and Limelight Facial has proven to significantly improve complexion problems associated with our ‘sun based’ lifestyles.
To promote a vibrant, healthy smoother skin free of red and brown blemishes 2D therapy monthly can create stimulation of new collagen, an improvement in texture and colour and healthier younger looking skin.
2 dimensional therapy utilizes both the Cutera Coolglide laser for mid dermal stimulation (papillary dermis) plus the Limelight IPL for superficial skin conditions.
The Cutera CoolGlide Laser addresses diffuse redness and textural changes (cobblestone appearance) associated with ageing skin and stimulates dermal collagen re-growth. The Limelight IPL addresses superficial (epidermis) pigment known commonly as ‘age spots’, sallowness and superficial tiny telangiectasia.
By treating 2 levels of your skin, you get twice the results.
Combines the Limelight IPL for red and brown areas with Laser for mid dermal collagen re-growth. This combination of Limelight and Laser Genesis promotes a healthier skin especially in conditions associated with sun damage.
What is Clear and Brilliant?
Clear + Brilliant is a non -invasive treatment that uses fractional laser technology to help address the effects of ageing skin. This gentle laser refreshes your skin from the inside out and is suitable for all skin types. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment Zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue. No matter how old you are, sun exposure, environmental conditions and lifestyle can contribute to lacklustre skin. Whether you want to extend the younger look of your skin or address these early signs of ageing, Clear + Brilliant can help.
What does the Clear + Brilliant System help treat?
Dermapen uses multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin with patent-pending AOVNTM (Automatic Oscillating Vertical Needling) technology. When moved across the skin, the Dermapen 3TM creates millions of fine channels in the skin. The channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin. It also simulates trauma, which the body responds to by launching a natural healing process.
Advanced skin needling promotes results similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime. Practitioners have also observed it to be more effective than most microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels.
Unlike traditional skin needling rollers, Dermapen 3TM causes less trauma and causes minimal epidermal (skin) damage, therefore reducing pain and discomfort, and making it a safer, more effective treatment. Dermapen 3’s disposable single-use cartridges eliminate risk of cross- contamination, while the adjustable depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. Dermapen 3TM is so advanced, that it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes and lips and on the nose.
Your clinician will assess your skin and treatment area to recommend a treatment plan suitable for you.
Chemical peels improve a variety of skin conditions by shedding off the top layers of skin to promote the regeneration of new cell growth. We use a wide variety of medical grade, superficial and medium depth peels to achieve the best possible results on your skin. You will notice a reduction in pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, acne and scarring to achieve a far more radiant, fresher look.
At Vitality Laser & Skin Clinic we take treating your skin very seriously. Whether your desire is to relax and rejuvenate or to treat a particular skin condition that concerns you, our expert aestheticians have the perfect solution.
Medi-facials are medical strength facial treatments using physician only and chirally correct skin care.
They are clinically proven to treat a range of skin conditions using active ingredients that excel in the management of prematurely aged skin, discolorations, imperfections and delicate skins. Our dermal clinician will customise your treatment after assessing your skin and design a treatment program for optimum results.
The most sophisticated diagnostic skin analysis equipment currently available, utilizing specialized digital photography with a comprehensive series of reports to provide a true picture of your skin’s condition.
You will receive advice on the correct in-salon treatments and home care products for you to achieve the best possible results.
Your VISIA skin consultation includes:
Microdermabrasion is a fabulous method of exfoliating dead and thickened skin cells from the surface of your skin, revealing fresh, new cells. This gives you the appearance of younger, smoother looking skin. Micro-dermabrasion involves abrading the surface of the skin with ultra fine, medical grade alum oxide crystals pumped under pressure through the operator’s hand piece.
This exciting, instant skin revival system is ideal for the treatment of pigmentation, age spots, acne, acne scarring, dull congested and thickened skin, scar tissue, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
After micro-dermabrasion it is important that you keep your skin clean and well moisturised. It is also important to protect your fresh, new skin by wearing an SPF 50+ sunscreen. Ask your clinician about the best products to use in conjunction with your treatments.
Well the truth is, your skin isn’t flat. It has pores and follicles that go deep into the skin. Dirt, oil and dead skin all can get trapped and blockages can occur. Blackheads, pimples, even ‘blind’ sore, pimples/cysts are all caused from build up. The MINIVAC technology is all about washing the skin out. Washing it deep to ensure unexpected blemishes don’t happen.
Well firstly, it’s not what you would expect. Actually the technology is a very gentle system, that doesn’t hurt. You probably could take a nap while the treatment is being done. Very different to getting your teeth cleaned! Your skin will be cleansed, then a small diamond tip that is attached to a mild vacuum cleaner is worked over your skin to exfoliate it and to remove dead skin. Once the blockages are cleared from the pores and follicles, a deeper clean can be achieved. Continual motion over the skin will keep removing dead skin from deep within each pore. It’s like vacuuming your carpets with a once over or going over the carpet many times to get the best result. The treatment only takes about 20 minutes, but long enough to wash out every pore. Once the diamond tip is finished, you will have a second treatment with a water system, this will wash out the pores and follicles to ensure the best skin wash ever.
Maintenance is achieved by cleaning your skin twice a day, exfoliating at least once a week, and continuing this treatment a minimum of once a month. The moment you get sight of a blind pimple, blackheads or a nasty pimple about to break through, it’s a sign you need another treatment!
Enjoy your treatment!
The healing power of light…
Work by NASA proposed that Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) had potential benefits in the medical community. Using this knowledge coupled with our understanding of how light interacts with the body Photo Therapeutics Inc. have developed a range of light devices for the medical and aesthetic communities.
The OMNILUX™ gives aestheticians direct access to medically and clinically proven technology for their clients. OMNILUX™ enables the aesthetician to deliver specific colours or wavelengths of light critical to achieving excellent results for skin rejuvenation, acne and can be used in combination with other aesthetic therapies to enhance results.
Unlike any other light therapy device on the market, OMNILUX™ is based on many years of medical research. OMNILUX™ is used extensively by 3300 dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide. The efficacy and safety of OMNILUX™ is very well documented in over 60 peer-reviewed publications. This ensures you have powerful results. OMNILUX™ efficacy claims for wrinkles and acne treatment are substantiated by over a decade of clinical evidence, evidence in short supply from the new quick-to-market entries in the LED light category.
OMNILUX™ works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing and clears acne-prone skin. OMNILUX™ features three interchangeable LED light treatment heads, each with a different colour of light, or wavelength; each head has up to 1700 evenly-spaced diodes which emit a specific narrow band wavelength of light that is proven effective for the condition being treated.
Using different combinations of the LED treatment heads means that aestheticians can deliver effective treatment protocols for acne, skin rejuvenation and for the reduction of periorbital wrinkles.
|Blue||Kills acne bacteria.||OMNILUX blue™|
|Red||Stimulates collagen formation.
Promotes healing of tissue.
It depends on the specific condition of the skin you need to treat.
Skin rejuvenation treatments using red and near-infrared light will have a significant effect on periorbital wrinkles, will help reduce pore size, improve skin tone and texture and give a vibrant, healthier-looking skin.
Combining blue and red helps remove the bacteria that cause the redness and inflammation of acne, minimising the redness of acne lesions, promoting healing and giving clearer and healthier skin.
All Vitality Laser & Skin Clinic cosmetic medical procedures are performed by a qualified cosmetic practitioner with more than 15 years’ experience.

The latest VIP night at Vitality was a big success with the launch of the state-of-the-art Ultraformer technology
Industry professionals and VIP clients gathered for an exclusive event to launch Vitality Laser & Skin’s new state-of-the-art Ultraformer, the world’s number one ultrasound non-surgical skin tightening technology.
Guests enjoyed an indulgent selection of canapés and glasses of bubbly, while also being treated to a number of special presentations.
These included an informative session conducted by Jade Ridden from Cryomed Aesthetics, who later demonstrated the immediate results of the Ultraformer, with one lucky clinic regular receiving a full-face treatment.
Vitality Laser & Skin owner and award-winning dermal clinician, Annette Harman, said she was excited to be able to offer the game-changing treatment to clients living in Geelong, the Bellarine Peninsula and beyond.
“I’m so pleased to launch this amazing technology among some of my most treasured clients,” Annette said.
“We are committed to offering our clients the latest and the best and the Ultraformer certainly provides the most effective non-surgical face, neck and body lifting with very minimal to no pain.”
Guests, some of whom have been clients for two decades, were also able to enjoy free in-clinic consultations, as well as take advantage of exclusive one-night-only offers at the Gateway Plaza Leopold clinic.
Attendees left the event with a generous gift bag valued at more than $250 and also popped a balloon to reveal an additional free gift.

Keeping at the forefront of non-surgical skin treatments, Vitality Laser & Skin is so pleased to offer clients lifting, tightening and contouring services using the Ultraformer III which will launch in the clinic on December 4.
The micro and macro-focused application system, with fast and precise multi-functional and multi-depth treatment, gives highly effective results with minimal pain.
Vitality owner and award-winning dermal clinician Annette Harman says she cannot wait to share the innovative technology with more clients who are seeking a range of fuss-free results for different problem areas.
“The Ultraformer III can be used to treat patients with diverse skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation on the face, or stubborn belly fat and love handles on those desiring a more curvaceous body figure,” Annette says.
“I find the Ultraformer III, in comparison with other devices, delivers minimal pain with slight discomfort to the face or body, though sensations quickly subside immediately following treatment.”
How does it work?
The Ultraformer III utilises cartridges focused on multiple depths of skin for lifting and tightening the face, as well as tightening body tissues for contouring purposes.
Patients can receive customised treatments on the face and body with the stable delivery of ultrasound energy, fast application, and precise accuracy of MMFU-powered transducers.
Treatments to the face use four multi-depth cartridges which directly transfer ultrasound energy into multiple layers of the face to trigger collagen renewal for a tighter, younger complexion.
The 2.0mm cartridge can also treat both narrow and sensitive contours with a slimmer transducer and faster shot speed.
Treatments to the body use macro-focused cartridges at 6.0mm, 9.0mm, and 13.0mm to directly transfer an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into the subcutaneous tissue of multiple body areas, inducing contractions as well as naturally disposing of stubborn fat cells for contouring purposes.
Are there any side effects?
Although both desired and competitive results for facial lifting and tightening and body contouring will likely show over the course of three months after receiving treatment, patients may still experience slight redness for a few hours, as well as swelling or tingling in either treatment area of focus for up to a few weeks.
There may also be bruising and numbness on treated areas but this should resolve two to four weeks following procedure.
If you have any questions about the Ultraformer III or are interested in booking a procedure, call the clinic on 03 5250 1319.

Gearing up for a hectic spring racing carnival season, Kids Fashion Blogger’s Sandi Zaljevic says maintaining clear and healthy skin is the cherry on top of any fashions on the field look.
The busy mum of two growing girls admits looking after her skin hasn’t been quite as seamless as it once was and she needed expert help.
Sandi turned to Vitality owner and award-winning Dermal Clinician, Annette Harman, and it has been a turning point in her six-year battle rosacea.
“I experience a lot of raised redness, especially around my cheeks and nose,” Sandi says.
“I was most concerned about the appearance, although it can sometimes become quite inflamed and develop into painful pimples.”
Often mistaken for acne, rosacea is a common inflammatory condition which causes redness, swelling and visible blood vessels.
Factors which may trigger rosacea include diet, sun damage, stress, medications and some cosmetic and skincare products.
Sandi admits she cannot trace her flare-ups to one particular factor, but when it does begin to become more visible, it can leave the usually wide-smiled mum feeling low and self-conscious.
Sandi began attending Leopold Gateway Plaza’s Vitality Laser & Skin just under three years ago and says it was a life-changing decision.
“When I’m not getting regular treatments done, I hate leaving the house without makeup on,” she says.
“It’s especially bad in the summer, when there’s the heat to contend with and you want to be outside playing with the kids.”
Sandi says when it comes to specific skin issues, it’s really important for her to have someone who she can trust, someone who truly knows what they are talking about and how to treat her conditions.
After some trial and error with other clinics, Annette Harman has been able to provide Sandi with the treatments and advice she has longed for.
“Annette has this great machine, Visia, which looks under your skin during your skin consultation and she can tell exactly what is needed,” she explains.
“I’ve been to a few people in the past and they haven’t had the knowledge Annette does.
“It can sometimes get worse if you don’t have the right care.
“Annette and her staff really understand the skin and skin-related issues.
“She has even taught me about gut health and how it can affect my skin and given me some supplements to improve my gut health.”
Annette says it has been a pleasure to use her knowledge and experience to oversee Sandi’s skin transformation and provide ongoing treatment and advice to help her to manage the rosacea.
Sandi’s treatments have included:
Visia skin consultations – The most sophisticated diagnostic skin analysis equipment currently available, Visia utilises specialised digital photography with a comprehensive series of reports to provide a true picture of your skin’s condition including depth of pores, UV damage, pigment disturbances, measurement of wrinkles and more.
Omnilux LED light therapy – Omnilux is a technology based on narrowband Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) that is a proven anti-ageing treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkels, improves uneven skin tone, reduces pore size and brightens the skin.
Laser Genesis – The Laser Genesis procedure utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars.
IPL – IPL Rejuvenation Treatments works to rejuvenate your skin and visibly reduce skin imperfections by stimulating collagen production, firming the skin and reducing skin pore size.
Medical peels – Chemical peels improve a variety of skin conditions by shedding off the top layers of skin to promote the regeneration of new cell growth, resulting in a reduction in pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, acne and scarring to achieve a more radiant, fresher look.
Vitality’s care doesn’t stop at the conclusion of Sandi’s in-clinic treatment, with Annette providing a carefully selected range of active ingredients for a complete home skin care regime using medical grade cosmeceuticals such as Aspect Dr, Cosmedix and Vita-sol Wholefoods, as well as providing expert advice in managing Sandi’s gut health.
“She writes it down which is great,” Sandi laughs.
“Each time I visit she reshuffles the products depending on what I need.”
Following some treatment earlier this week, Sandi says it has become clearer than ever to her just how important is it to keep up her treatment and skin care routine, and prioritise time for looking after it, to avoid the rosacea flaring up.
A visit also means she gets the added bonus of having some time to herself to unwind and relax.
“I went through stages where I couldn’t get into the clinic for about three to six months just because I was so busy with the girls and work, and I could really tell the difference in my skin, it becomes so sluggish,” she says.
“When I go regularly, every fortnight and then every month, I can see the results right away, literally as I walk out to my car.
“At about the three-month mark I can confidently leave the house without makeup, I quite often even get people telling me I look younger, which is nice.
“One visit is all it takes for me to start feeling clear, glowing and fresh again, so it really has made me aware of how important it is to keep on top of.”
Sandi says she empathises with women who feel apprehensive about going for a skin consultation, having felt self-conscious in the past.
But she assures a visit to Vitality Laser & Skin is something no woman will regret.
The professional service in a comfortable setting, combined with fantastic results, is what keeps her going back time and time again.
“I’m really lucky in that I was blessed with quite good genes and I’ve not really looked after my skin properly,” she admits.
“I used to wear makeup to bed and those kinds of thing.
“But now I’ve realised how truly important it is to have those treatments done and to have a proper skincare plan in place – you will never regret it.
“Once you get on top of those skin issues you will not look back.
“I’ve just realised it’s just so important to be looking after your skin.”

Annette Harman and Tim Kelly after his first Vitality visit.
Caitlin has been a regular client of the clinic for the past few months.
Having experienced some stress-related issues with her skin mid-year, she has been pleased with her results from day one and admits her treatments offer her rare moments of relaxation and time to unwind away from the hectic demands of life with three boys under four.
“At the moment Vitality is my getaway where I can let me hair down and forget about what’s going on at home for a moment, that and my Brownlow dress fittings,” Caitlin sighs.
“Annette has been so wonderful and I just love going there.”
Looking after the skin is not just important for women, and Tim has also recently become a client of the clinic.
Dermal Clinician Annette Harman examines Tim’s skin before developing a treatment plan.
With fresh battle scars from copping a knee to the face in a tackle during one of the final rounds of the home and away season, owner and dermal clinician, Annette Harman applies the upmost care with Tim’s treatment.
“For Tim, we applied an Ultraceuticals Mandelic Peel to refine his pores, followed by some sonophoresis and infused Vitamin C with an energising mask and finished off with treatment cream,” Annette explains.
Speaking post treatment, Tim was pleased with the results.
“My skin feels amazing already. I don’t think it’s ever felt this clean.”
With Tim being one of the Brownlow Medal favourites, this year’s trip to the event will be an exciting one for the couple.
Top: Caitlin’s skin looking amazing. However, she does suffer from breakouts and scarring which Vitality is helping her to manage and treat.
Bottom: Annette Harman and Caitlin Miller discuss the findings from her VISIA skin analysis.
Caitlin was delighted when contacted by Marquise Bridal earlier this year, who is making her a custom gown for the September 24 event.
“It’s so, so different; I have a lovely lady Megan who approached me and I just love I – I’m so happy I don’t have to worry about it,” she says.
“We really hope Geelong is going to be in the Grand Final and, if that’s the case, we’re just going to go up to the Brownlow and straight home and get ready for Grand Final.”

Laser hair reduction and removal is no new phenomenon, however, the advancements in technology and technique have come a long way over the last number of years.
The use of the latest medical grade, state-of-the-art equipment and tertiary educated Dermal Clinicians ensures clients in Geelong and on the Bellarine Peninsula are able to achieve results in a safe and comfortable environment. Vitality Laser & Skin founder and Dermal Clinician ANNETTE HARMAN answers some of the most commonly asked questions clients have when considering laser hair reduction.
1. How does it work?
The process involves using a primary principle called selective photothermolysis. This is when a wavelength penetrates a fluence into the hair follicles which then converts into heat and causes trauma to the area of the hair, along with the stem cells present. It works best during the anagen stage of the growth cycle, which is when the hair is attached to the blood supply. However, our hair growth is never all at the one stage which is why we require six treatments for most ideal outcomes. Laser light is safe for the skin as it uses non ionising radiation, meaning that it is very superficial and only targets what we are treating, making it a very safe method of hair reduction.
2. Does it hurt?
Personally, I find waxing is much more painful, laser feels like a little zap and then the pain dissipates quite rapidly.
3. Does it work for everyone?
At Vitality we can treat any dark hair on any Fitzpatrick skin type due to the two laser wavelengths that we can work with. The only hairs we cannot treat are light white or blonde hairs as there is no pigment in the hair which means there is no attraction for the laser to determine where it has to go.
4. How soon will I see results?
Most clients see around a 50 per cent reduction following the first session.
5. How many treatments will I need and are top-ups required?
Six treatments targeting the anagen stage of the growth cycle each time depending on the area every four to eight weeks apart. Top ups are required for dormant hair follicles which are stimulated by hormones and other factors. We recommend maintenance if required every 12 months.
6. Can it help with ingrown hairs?
Yes, the wavelength is attracted to the pigment of the hair, therefore, it treats the hairs underneath the skin that are not present on the surface. By reducing the growth of the hairs, ingrown hairs become non-existent.
7. What should I do before and after a treatment?
BEFORE: It’s important there is no fake tanning or sun tanning before a treatment as this acts as a chromophore the laser will pick up, making you more susceptible to adverse reactions. We recommend shaving the night before the treatment and no dry shaving as this creates micro cracks in the skin and can aggravate the area more.
AFTER: For home care post-treatment we recommend our post laser gel which keeps the area cool and prevents further aggravation of the area.
We give our clients post care forms stating no gym or excessive sweating as this will stimulate further inflammation, no sunbathing, swimming in chlorine pools or deodorant, as the skin will begin to go through the stages of wound healing. We do not want to disrupt any of these phases.
8. Do some lasers work better than others?
Class four medical grade lasers are the most powerful for treating laser hair due to the amount of power and energy the lasers exhaust throughout a treatment. For hair reduction the gold standard wavelength is the 755nm due to its high attraction of pigment within the hair follicle. At Vitality we have invested in the Cutera Excel HR which is TGA (Therapeutic Goods Australia) approved, meaning it meets all the regulations within Australia and it does what it claims to do. This laser uses both the 755nm wavelength and 1064nm wavelength, so it is suitable for all skin colours and ty
9. What is the difference between IPL and laser?
IPL and laser are very different treatments because IPL is a poly chromatic wavelength meaning it uses lots of different colours to make up on wavelength. When IPL hits the skin it scatters and goes to whatever chromophore it sees first, which will either be a pigmented lesion or a blood supply, a capillary or the hair follicle, it cannot determine what it is meant to go to making it less specific when treating for hair.
Laser is different to IPL as it is one coherent wavelength meaning it is one beam. This beam is only attracted to the pigment of the hair each time it pulses there is no scatter and it penetrates into the hair follicle causing the selective photothermolysis reaction, making it very specific in treating the hair and only the hair.
10. How much time should I allow for treatments?
The size of the area will determine how long the treatment will take but it is approximately:
Chin and lip – 15 minutes
Brazilian – half an hour
1/2 leg – half an hour
Underarms – 15 minutes
Full leg – 45 minutes
Full arm – 30 minutes
Back, chest and neck – 1 hour
11. Does it matter who does my laser hair removal?
In Victoria laser is not regulated meaning anyone can do a short laser safety course and start treating clients. At Vitality we pride ourselves the experts in laser with over 26 years in the field of cosmetic treatments including tertiary educated dermal clinicians performing all laser treatments. Our dermal clinicians have completed a bachelor degree in health science in dermal therapies, covering units devoted to laser safety, laser hair reduction including cosmetic and anti-ageing procedures.
12. When is the best time to have laser?
Winter is a great time to start as by the time summer arrives you will already be seeing results after a number of treatments. Enjoy your best summer yet without the stress of waxing and shaving.
If you have any further questions please contact us at Vitality Laser & Skin on 5250 1319.

When it comes to taking care of our skin during the colder months it is a common mistake to just accept your skin will be dry and do nothing to combat it.
Instead, the best thing you can do is to love the skin you are in – all year around.
Heating and the extreme cold temperatures contribute to dehydration, flaky, dull and dry skin during winter therefore adjusting your skin routine accordingly is essential. The cold weather can also exacerbate conditions such as eczema, dry skin, psoriasis and even rosacea.
Here is how to keep your skin nourished and hydrated all winter long:
It’s important to moisturise your face and body all year round, especially during winter when certain cellular processes occur along with the change of environmental factors which effect the natural moisturising of the skin, causing it to be drier that it would be in summer. Ingredients such as hyaluronic acid is extremely hydrating including antioxidants such as A and E.
It might seem unusual to prioritise sunscreen in winter but UV rays are a consideration year around which means sunscreen remains a vital tool in your skincare kit. Apply every morning to your face and areas of exposed skin to prevent premature ageing.
Two litres a day is the ideal amount of water to drink each day so just because the weather cools and you may not feel as thirsty, don’t forget to keep up your H20 intake.
Diet and sleep effect all skin conditions as they influence hormones and gut health.
Repair of enzymes, as well as many other processes, occur when we sleep so when this is inhibited it adds extra stress on our body. Gut health is a major factor that will result in various flare-ups of many skin conditions. Internal inflammation of the gut will exacerbate any external inflammatory conditions which is why it’s so important to treat skin conditions by taking a holistic approach.
Exfoliating is not just for summer! It should be done 1-2 times a week in all seasons as this removes excess dead skin cells. Home care exfoliants should be done through the use of an enzyme exfoliant or granular exfoliant as this helps to reduce texture in the skin and stimulates the cells underneath.
An excellent way to assess an individual’s winter skin is via a Visia skin complexion and analysis system. This is the most sophisticated diagnostic skin analysis equipment currently available in Geelong, utilising specialised digital photography with a comprehensive series of reports to provide a true picture of your skin’s condition and skincare requirements.
We recommend the following products including Cosmedix Emulsion Intense Hydrator, Miss Vitality Good Oil, Ultraceuticals B2 Hydrating Serum, Cosmedix Opti Crystal Eye Serum, Pevonia Reactive Skin Care Cream, Aspect Dr Redless Serum and Ultraceuticals Ultra Replenishing Mask.
Consider clinic-based treatments to manage those common winter skin concerns. These include:
FACIALS: Pevonia Anti-Free Radical Mask Treatment. Repair you skin while deeply nourishing and replenishing your complexion, leaving your skin well hydrated,, toned and visibly radiant.
PEELS: Peels are wonderful to aid in hydration depending on what type of peel it is. The best way to treat any skin condition is for a dermal clinician to physically see what the skin presents with in person and treat accordingly.
LED light therapy: Increases glycosaminoglycans function and stimulates ATP energy production of the cells to aid in putting the skin back to its normal functioning state. We recommend the Omnilux LED light therapy.
LASER GENESIS: Laser Genesis aids in stimulating growth factors and wound repair, as well as stimulating collagen and elastin.
Winter is an excellent time of the year for laser hair removal and skin rejuvenating procedures, including chemical peels and microdermabrasion, as you are required to avoid direct sunlight. The laser is far less effective if your skin has excessive pigment from sun exposure. At Vitality we use the most effective medical grade non-invasive light-based treatments for skin rejuvenation improving brown spots, sun damage and skin redness. This non-invasive Limelight facial treats benign lesions, improving skin tone and imperfections associated with ageing and photo damage. Exposing your skin to the harmful UV rays will damage the DNA in cells risking skin cancer and speeding up the ageing process.

An industry expert, she holds a Bachelor Degree in Dermal Science specialising in non-surgical treatments, laser, skin diseases and disorders.

Retinol, it is the buzz word in skincare we’ve all heard of but what exactly is it and what does it do? Read on as the Pevonia® team explains this anti-ageing wonder ingredient. You can also make a booking at Vitality – your Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula Facial Treatments specialist – and we can guide you through works to combat signs of sun damage and skin ageing.
What is Vitamin A?
Vitamin A is one of the best ingredients to treat signs of ageing and sun-damaged skin. Vitamin A is an antioxidant vitamin and may be in the form of retinol, retinyl palmitate, tretinoin, retinoic acid, retinal, retinaldehyde and beta-carotene.
Retinol is the most active and skin-friendly form of Vitamin A and is a derivative of Vitamin A obtained through enzymatic conversion from natural Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) and retinol. It is one of the best ingredients for rejuvenated skin as it addresses each of the causes, processes and symptoms of ageing and sun-damage. Overall, it promotes a smoother, more even skin tone and texture, and is considered the gold standard in anti-ageing.
How Retinol Works
Retinol dramatically enhances skin cellular performance and repairs cellular signs of ageing. With age, cell reproduction becomes sluggish, resulting in slow, uneven cell renewal and cell turnover. Retinol promotes rapid cell renewal and turnover by helping break down dead skin, and pushing dead cells out faster. This paves the way for newer, plumper skin cells and signals the deeper layers to produce more collagen and elastin to support the “new” skin. In essence, retinol has a resurfacing effect, as it smoothes, firms and evens skin tone.
Retinol can also be considered a skin organiser. Dead skin cells in ageing or sun-damaged skin become disorganised, much like piles of bricks after a building demolition. Retinol reorganises skin cells, as if reconstructing the bricks back into a well-constructed brick wall. Retinol does this by normalising enzymatic activity, which is needed for healthy cell division (mitosis).
Retinol addresses the collagen loss, dehydration and uneven pigment production that occur with ageing and sun overexposure. Collagen loss causes wrinkles and sagging. When retinol comes in, it strengthens and stimulates collagen production, smoothes lines, plumps the skin and repairs sun damage. Dryness and dehydration that occur give skin a tight, flakey look and feel. Retinol restores moisture balance by maintaining hydration and reducing evaporation of water. This improves elasticity and flexibility, plus increases strong and healthy lipids in the membranes.
Additional benefits of Vitamin A
Ageing and sun damage also cause irregular and uneven production of pigment (melanin). Retinol helps melanocytes (responsible for producing pigment) dispose of trapped melanin.
With age skin becomes thinner. Retinol improves the skin density and bolsters the skin barrier by rebuilding the upper layers of the skin (epidermis) with stronger, thicker, healthier cells. As an antioxidant, retinol neutralises free radicals that damage the skin and cause ageing. Studies show that Vitamin A can reduce pH levels to help normalise the skin disrupted by factors that cause inflammation and ageing; one more way retinol fights ageing. Retinol works optimally within the epidermis, and indirectly benefits the dermis as well to reveal new, smoother, brighter skin.
Vitamin A and Pevonia®
Pevonia® uses state-of-the art manufacturing technologies to stabilise retinol, as well as ensure maximum results without the irritation associated with prescription retinoids or retinoic acids. Retinol is not to be confused with retinoic acids, retinoids such as Retin-A®, Avita® and Renova®. These dermatologist-prescribed retinoids can cause burning, redness, itching, skin thinning, flaking, even cracking, due to having a different chemical structure than retinol.
The Vitality Laser and Skin team can provide expert advice on which Pevonia® products and treatments are best suited to your skin.
SPECIAL OFFER DURING MAY. Purchase Pevonia® Micro-Retinol Serum or Cream and receive a free full sized Micro-Retinol Cleanser.

Laser Genesis is a new kind of cosmetic therapy for your skin. It’s designed to restore your skin’s natural vibrancy by smoothing out bumps, wrinkles and uneven texture. If your skin is damaged, dry or discoloured, you might be considering laser genesis—but what exactly can it do?
Do you suffer from skin redness or rosacea? Our Geelong-based laser genesis service will let your true skin tone shine through. By targeting the broken capillaries in your skin and sealing them off, laser genesis can reduce red pigment and reveal your natural, healthy glow.
Laser Genesis treats fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating your body’s collagen production. Collagen is a natural protein that keeps your skin looking plump and youthful. As we age, our natural collagen levels drop, leading to the appearance of wrinkles. Laser Genesis creates long-term results by restoring your skin’s collagen levels and filling in fine lines.
Effective treatment for your skin doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. Laser Genesis is a non-invasive procedure—meaning there will be no medical instruments poking and prodding at your delicate skin. Many Vitality Laser & Skin patients describe laser genesis as a relaxing and therapeutic experience. As the laser moves back and forth, it will gently warm your skin—a calming feeling you may not want to end!
We’re lucky to live in a country where the sun shines brightly all year round—but as many Australians know all too well, the sun can damage our skin. Laser Genesis can reduce sun damage, scarring and brown spots to your face and neck by targeting and gently removing unwanted pigmentation.
Overactive sebaceous glands cause your skin to produce too much oil. This results in clogged pores, which leads to acne. Using controlled heat, laser genesis will treat any overactive glands and destroy acne-causing bacteria for good. It’s an excellent long-term solution for acne sufferers who are fed up with temporary treatments.
Considering this life-changing treatment? For laser genesis in Geelong, please get in contact with the friendly team at Vitality Laser & Skin Clinic and book an appointment today.
When it comes to body hair, everyone as their own personal preference and opinions on what looks good and what makes them feel confident. At Vitality Laser & Skin Clinic we get many customers coming into our clinic in Geelong for laser hair removal for a wide variety of reasons. Below is some things to consider before getting started with your first laser hair reduction session.
The main difference between waxing and laser hair removal is that laser hair removal is permanent, whereas waxing lasts on average between 3 and 6 weeks depending on your type of hair. Another difference between the two treatments is that high-quality laser skin removal equipment has been created to be friendly to sensitive skin, meaning it can be used on all areas of the body and doesn’t cause irritation in certain sensitive areas, unlike waxing.
The amount of time it takes to achieve significant reduction in hair growth will vary depending on the area of the body that is being targeted and your own individual needs.
However, at Vitality Laser & Skin we aim to minimise the amount of sessions you will need to see outstanding results, by using state-of-the-art equipment and conducting a through assessment before we begin. On average it can take between 4-5 treatments over a 6-8 week period for complete hair removal.
The short answer to this is no; all laser hair removal machines are created differently, but as a general rule, the cheaper the machine is the more chance there is for complications, burns and ineffective results. At Vitality Laser & Skin we use the medical grade laser hair removal machine Excel HR to ensure the most effective treatment possible for our clients.

The effects of sun exposure occurs when the skin is exposed to harsh UVR over prolonged periods of time. At our clinic we are always encouraging our clients to take steps to limit the impact that sun exposure has on their skin.
Often our skin care tips and treatments can actually result in skin rejuvenation for our Geelong clients. However, failure to act can result in some unwanted effects on your skin and overall health.
Some of the most common visible effects are:
Sunscreen is one of the most common methods of sun protection along with an antioxidant. Sunscreens are known to create heat to the skin therefore feeding your skin topically with an antioxidant is vital to prevent ageing.
Antioxidants protect our skin from ‘free radicals’ which are highly unstable molecules causing oxidative stress and potential DNA damage to our cells. This process is the underlying cause of Skin Ageing.
Now that summer is over, it is important to repair your skin after suffering from the harsh UVR displaying signs of irritation and an impaired lipid barrier.
Many clients are visiting Vitality with enzyme impairment, essential fatty acid deficiency and dehydration. This why we encourage all of our Geelong clients to rejuvenate their skin as a priority.
You can prolong the ageing process and start looking after your largest organ.
It’s so important to seek professional advice from those who have gained tertiary education with a focus on everything to do with skin including, dermatological conditions, skin diseases and disorders.
Why not book in for a consultation with one of our Dermal Clinicians to see how we can help you rejuvenate your skin after enduring another Geelong summer?
DID YOU KNOW…
The skin is the largest organ of the body and the first to show external signs of premature ageing and nutritional imbalances?
We spend an ever-increasing amount on topical skincare with advanced cosmeceutical ingredients such as peptides, vitamins, minerals, penetration enhancers and bioactive compounds to improve the texture and appearance of the skin, but what about supporting the skin internally?
The best way to have healthy looking skin is to have a healthy body. Fuelling the body with nutrient dense ingredients to support cell integrity, hydration and antioxidant support is the foundation to glowing, radiant skin. By supporting skin health from the inside and refining the condition of the skin topically, we set ourselves up for the very best skin we can have.
Signs of possible nutritional deficiencies include:
At Vitality we know that a healthy diet plays a valuable role in your skin health however many people are not getting enough nutrients from their diet. This may be due to gut health, dietary factors or simply eating the wrong foods.
Offering evidence-based technology and skills for the most important asset and investment – YOU – start your skin care health journey with our one of our Dermal Clinicians today.

That’s a wrap for Annette’s 30 Days of Self Care!
Annette has loved being able to share her passion for the industry for all things cosmeceutical skincare, wellness and skin health this month through daily self care tips, and the feedback we have received from both our clients and on our social media accounts has been incredible!
“If you get tired, learn to rest, not quit.”
You can check out every tip over the last 30 days below.
TIP #1 – DRINK WATER 💦
Drinking two litres of water per day helps to rid the body of toxins, improves skin health, maintains the balance of bodily fluids, aids calorie control and maintains bowel function, not to mention keeping your body well hydrated. Your skin needs H20 to deliver the essential nutrients to our cells for optimum function. Hydration is vital for our skin tissue to delay the effects of ageing. Your face is a mirror of your organs, what you put inside your body will show.
TIP #2 – DETOX MASK 🙌🏻
Seriously this mask totally refreshes my skin removing dirt and toxins! Did you know skin pollution can lead to visible signs of ageing? The COSMEDIX Detox Mask works perfectly to gently exfoliate, draw impurities and cleanse away pollutants for a brighter, radiant glow. This is one of my favourites!
TIP #3 – MEDITATION ✨
For many years Annette’s life was running on auto pilot. Three children, several businesses and being a wife, she was at the point of burn out. There was a time in her life where she couldn’t function or even get out of bed… With her body continually aching it was like living with the flu 24 hours a day.
Desperate to find answers, doctors told her she was just over doing it and that she needed to slow down. However that was not the answer she wanted to hear. She wondered how at such a young age she could be over doing it when her mind was so driven and had so much more to give.
After many years of frustration, a medical professor diagnosed her with Chronic Fatigue and fibromyalgia. With no cure it was time to get on top of this illness. Annette slowly learnt it was time to take control and build her body back up.
“Our minds are our greatest tool although can be our worst enemy. It is important to be kind to ourselves as it is with others.”
Annette soon learnt to re-program and give herself unconditional love. It is vital to be connected within yourself to feel stronger and glow. Scheduling 10 minutes of meditation into each day helped to balance Annette’s busy schedule and start the healing process. There are so many benefits of meditation and so many different ways to do it!
TIP #4 – SMOOTHIES 🥑
Good skin starts from within… Annette starts her day with a green smoothie consisting of coconut water, cucumber, spinach, avocado, ginger, lemon, green apple, banana and 1/2 teaspoon of MISS-VITALITY elevate. YUM! This smoothie not only tastes good, it will help improve your skin’s glow and give you a boost of energy!
TIP #5 – WORKOUT 💪🏻
Annette recommends a work-out routine that consists of at least four days a week of upper body/leg training to increase strength and boost metabolism. Not only will you look fantastic, you’ll feel it!
TIP #6 – EYE TREATMENT 👁
Annette is OBSESSED with COSMEDIX Elite Eye Doctor. This high potency serum improves the appearance of damaged, thinning skin with AGP encapsulated retinol encouraging skin renewal to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fighting free radicals plus providing deep hydration? It’s a no brainer!
TIP #7 – BENEFIT CLEANSER 🍊
With grapefruit oil, sandlewood and herbal amaranth, the COSMEDIX Benefit Cleanser keeps Annette’s face balanced and smooth, removing impurities, make-up and pollutants without stripping her skin barrier. Apply one pump to damp skin morning and night, remove with lukewarm water. No wonder it’s our BEST SELLER!
TIP #8 – YOGA 🙏🏻
Annette loves adding yoga sessions into her fitness regime, it allows her to switch her mind off from her busy schedule. Yoga offers many benefits from good health, glowing skin, a strong flexible body and a peaceful mind. To feel connected with your thoughts gives inner peace helping build her immunity.
TIP #9 – HYDRATING SERUM 💧
Ultraceuticals ultimate B2 Hydrating Serum with hyaluronic acid helps with tissue repair, provides continuous hydration keeping the skin barrier function intact. A must-have in your daily skincare routine!
TIP #10 – HOLIDAYS 🌴
Everyone needs time off. Annette ensures she takes time out of busy schedule to unwind and destress by taking holidays. Port Douglas is her favourite destination!
TIP #11 – MASSAGE 💆🏻♀️
There’s a reason massages are one of the world’s oldest healing traditions. Annette loves to schedule in a regular massage to release muscle tension, reduce stress and most importantly, RELAX! Her favourite massage is our Vital Skin Rescue massage that includes facial cleansing, exfoliation, full body and facial massage and a professional mask treatment. Read more here
TIP #12 – SWIMMING 🏊🏻♀️
Not all exercise needs to be strenuous. Swimming is low impact and kinder to our bodies without the stress on our joints and muscles. Shutting down her mind and finding peace while on holidays re-energises and gives her peace. Annette especially loves to incorporate it into her holidays in Port Douglas at the stunning Peppers Beach Club & Spa.
TIP #13 – SMOOTHIE BOWL 🍌
If you’re looking for something with a bit more substance than a regular smoothie, Annette 💕‘s and recommends a smoothie bowl instead. They’re rich in nutrients, sweet and delicious!
Frozen Açaí sachet
Cold pressed apple juice
Small handful of spinach
Toppings – cut up fruit, shredded coconut and pumpkin seeds.
TIP #14 – ANTIOXIDANTS 🍇
Antioxidants protect our skin from harmful free radicals that damage the DNA of our skin causing skin ageing. Annette incorporates this powerful serum containing 10 antioxidants in to her daily regime for a firmer and healthy skin.
COSMEDIX Affirm or Elite Pepoxide are a great option as we are spending more time outdoors.
TIP #15 – SLEEP 💤
Did you know poor sleepers have increased signs of a disruption of the barrier function, impacting signs of ageing? By getting a good night’s sleep, you decrease the hormone cortisol – boosting your blood flow and and increasing your collagen – repairing the skin. Annette ensures she gets at least 8 hours sleep a night which is vital for her immune system and of course Vitality.
TIP #16 – ELEVATE 👌🏻
Elevate by MISS-VITALITY is one of Annette’s favourite organic products for glowing skin and holistic wellness. It contains phytonutrients such as spirulina, acai berry, wheatgrass, and healing slippery elm. Now with a delicious new flavour of two antioxidants, cacao and coconut. Annette recommends this daily in either water or a smoothie for energy and your skins health.
TIP #17 – DRY BODY OIL 💫
Annette applies Pevonia Botanica Australia aromatic oil every morning. It contains lavender, squalene and chamomile leaving your skin feel silky smooth without any residue. It smells to die for and Annette loves the way her skin feels non-greasy!
TIP #18 – LASER GENESIS 💥
Annette’s go-to for stimulating collagen, improving her skin tone and texture without the downtime. This non ablative laser treatment safely delivers short pulses into the skin which refreshes the skins either face, neck or décolletage. Even better – it’s relaxing, therapeutic and you can get straight back to doing whatever you need to do. EASY!
TIP #19 – READING 📖
Annette loves to make time to read for personal development and to grow her business. It’s a great way to unwind for the day and comes with great benefits! Currently Annette is reading “The Accidental Entrepreneur” by the Founder of Boost Juice, Janine Allis, followed by Gary Vaynerchuk ‘One Entrepreneur’s take on Leadership, Social Media & Self-Awareness.’
TIP #20 – RIFFI LOOFAH 🛀🏼Loofahs are a must for removing dead skin cells, stimulating blood circulation and smoothing skin. Also known as exfoliating mitts, Annette highly recommends incorporating these into your daily routine!
TIP #21 – Ultra MD 🙌🏻
Vitamin C is Annette’s hero cosmeceutical!!! A powerful antioxidant protecting her from the damaging UV rays and protecting her skin against free radicals. Ultimate C15+ Firming Serum improves skin firmness and elasticity, brightens and plays a vital role in collagen synthesis- smoothing over your wrinkles. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!
TIP #22 – FAMILY TIME 👩👩👧👧
Making time for the family can be challenging at times with running a business, but Annette always ensures she makes a date and prioritises family time first!
TIP #23 – SUNSCREEN ☀️
Skin is Annette’s passion and therefore she protects herself from the sun’s harmful UV rays, vital for preventing photodamage. Physical sunscreens are Annette’s go-to, they effectively sit on the skin to deflect or scatter UV rays. Annette recommends Colorescience Unforgettable Mineral Powder SPF 50 which is water resistant, brush-on, effective and convenient! This is a Physical Sunscreen providing the best protection from the harmful rays unlike chemical sunscreens that can still cause damage creating inflammation and irritate the skin.
TIP #24 – RUNNING 🏃🏽♀️
Running at least 3-4 times a week helps Annette keep fit, focused and build strong bones. She loves getting out in the mornings, drifting to her music and taking in the beautiful scenery Geelong and the Bellarine has to offer!
TIP #25 – WEEKLY GOALS ✔️
Annette writes up weekly goals each Sunday, focusing on herself and her business. Productive planning is vital for helping her stay on track for her future and long-term goals.
TIP #26 – STRETCH 🤸🏼♀️
Stretching is vital for keeping the muscles flexible and strong. Annette recommends stretching for a few minutes before exercising to warm up the muscles up, and after for recovery!
TIP #27 – MUSIC 🎶
Another one of Annette’s favourite ways to unwind is listening to her 80’s music. A kid at heart, Annette loves to have fun singing and dancing, especially to ABBA, Matchbox 20 and Bon Jovi!
TIP #28 – SKIN CARE ROUTINE 🌟
Annette’s morning and night skin care routine is an important part of her day. Annette’s mother instilled the routine in her at the age of 12, meaning she recognises the importance of skin care.
She recalls the Mary Kay days and although is wasn’t ideal for her skin, her mum did let her use her anti-ageing cream. Annette’s mother is almost 80 and still has beautiful skin – such a beautiful sole and great role model!
TIP #29 – PEVONIA SPA PEDICURE 💅
Annette absolutely loves treating herself to a Pevonia Spa Pedicure. It’s such a relaxing and soothing treatment that is more than a treatment, it’s a facial for the feet that leaves them smooth, soft and callous free while softening hardened skin.
TIP #30 – CLEAR AND BRILLIANT 🙌🏻
One of Annette’s favourite treatments to get that glow before a big event is Clear + Brilliant!
It’s a non-invasive treatment that uses fractional laser technology to help address the effects of ageing skin, refreshes your skin from the inside out and is suitable for all skin types.
Replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue, Clear + Brilliant assists in a visibly illuminated skin tone, reduction in the appearance of pores and a renewed softer and smoother texture.
