We are still on a high and so excited to share this news with our tribe! Australia’s biggest beauty awards, the Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA’s) has just announced this year’s finalists. Bobbie Charles Skin & Cosmetic Clinics has achieved finalists in six categories for 2022, a huge accomplishment and testament to the team.

Jessica-Dermal-Therapist

New team member alert! Join us in welcoming our newest Dermal Therapist, Jessica to the Bobbie Charles team.

Jessica has held a passion for skin since an early age, and has a keen eye for detail, a student mindset and commitment to customer care. Joining the Bobbie Charles team in February, Jessica’s passion to empower people through skin confidence saw her pursue a career in the beauty industry. Starting as a hair apprentice in a day spa, Jessica took a keen interest in skin services and products. After having a baby, Jessica saw an opportunity to study her passion in skin, recently completing her Diploma in Laser and Dermal Therapy and now studying her Bachelor of Applied Science in Clinical Aesthetics.

I’ve always loved learning about anything to do with skin. I find it truly so fascinating and geek out on client concerns, as every individual’s concern is so unique.

Growing up in Papua New Guinea as a young girl, Jessica now loves living in Brisbane with her partner and her young daughter. When she gets a chance outside of study and work, Jessica enjoys her at-home self care (who doesn’t) and family time – heading to either the markets or beach on weekends, especially to visit her family’s business, Olakina for an açai bowl.

Jessica is available to look after all your lash, brow and skin treatments. Jessica knows more than you can poke a stick at when it comes to skin (and the tiling industry), but she’s always keen for a chat about interior design, travel or the history channel. Make sure to say hi next time you see Jess at our West Village clinic.

Please give a warm welcome to one of our newest team members, Meyka Charlie. ⁠

Committed to empowering people to feel confident in their own skin, Meyka’s love for the beauty industry lies in the simple fact her work can bring a smile to her client’s face and boost their confidence. ⁠

Joining the Bobbie Charles team in early November, Meyka illustrates a natural talent for lashes and brows, and a student’s mindset as she demonstrates perfect technique and a passion to deliver quality results. Drawn to beauty at a young age doing makeup for her family and friends, Meyka’s love for the beauty industry lies in the simple fact her work can bring a smile to her client’s face and boost their confidence.

“I love wearing makeup because of the confidence it creates. Makeup isn’t just for women, it’s for everyone. Theatre and drag, special effects, and helping boost confidence in those who suffer from skin conditions.”

Meyka is available for lash and brow tinting, brow sculpting, brow lamination, lash lifts, and classic lash extensions.

As she slowly starts to get to know everyone and perfect her technique, we are offering a sale on selected services performed by Meyka for bookings in January 2022.

Selected services include:

• Classic 90LPE Full Set Extensions
• 2 Week and 3 Week Classic Extensions Refill

Word of warning, keep an eye on your coffee mugs around Meyka. She has a weird obsession with them.⁠ Her coffee mug collection sits at 15 and growing.

Results from 8 LED Treatments using Healite

At Bobbie Charles we are wholeheartedly committed to helping you feel confident in your own skin, through a combination of effective in-clinic treatment plans and tailored at home products to enhance your results.

Our most popular and well-loved skin treatment would have to be Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) using the Healite II, a world leading LED light treatment for skin rejuvenation and healing. Not all LED devices are created equal; so, it’s important to know you are being treated with the best the industry has to offer.

The Healite II, which is a TGA approved medical device backed by proven clinical studies, harnesses the properties of 830/590nm and 415nm light via light emitting diodes (LED) technology. This device works at a subcellular, cellular and tissue level, treating effectively without the possibility of physical trauma or thermal damage. The treatment is pain free, non-invasive and can be used as a stand-alone treatment to improve skin texture, reducing acne and rosacea, wrinkle depth and skin texture issues. Due to its ability to heal the skin, the Healite II is also used as an adjunctive treatment to other cosmetic procedures.

 Why use Healite II LED Light Therapy?

  1. Promotes Skin Rejuvenation

As you age, your body starts producing less collagen. The skin becomes thinner, drier, and experiences a downturn in quality collagen and elastin fibres. The degradation of these fibres leads to wrinkle formation and an inability for the skin to look plump and lifted. With Healite II LED Light Therapy we can wind back the clock and regain skin rejuvenation.

When it comes to skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing, the 830 nm LED light wavelength is the answer. The light triggers a response by the skin’s cells and sets off a cascade of cellular reactions, which results in a release of growth factors, new collagen synthesis and improvements in the microcirculation.

  1. Enhances Your Body’s Natural Cellular Recovery

Healite II LED Light Therapy enhances our body’s natural cellular recovery. But you are probably thinking “what does this actually mean?”. This medical grade device improves your body’s healing time, it aids in pain relief, treats active acne, improves blood flow circulation, and promotes skin rejuvenation for an anti-aging effect.

The near infrared (830nm wavelength) is the setting of choice for post-surgical procedures including breast augmentations, face-lifts, rhinoplasty etc. to calm inflammation, accelerate wound healing and reduce bruising; reducing downtime by half as studies show. The below table shows the healing comparison time post procedure without using Healite II compared to using the Healite II post procedure.

  1. Helps Treat Various Skin Conditions & Boosts Immune Function

Healite II LED Light Therapy not only helps rejuvenate your skin, but it has a lot of healing benefits as well. It can be used to help improve inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis. The LED light stimulates deep skin cells and boosts your immune function. It helps improve compromised skin and is a great stand-alone treatment, an amazing addition to our results-based facials such as Skin Peels, and complements prescribed at-home products for enhanced results, such as the Medik8 Crystal Retinal 3 and Medik8 Clarity Peptides.

  1. Helps Improve Acne/Breakouts

When it comes to acne, Healite II has been shown to reduce the appearance of acne scarring, reduce redness and inflammation, and further reduces breakouts.

The blue light (415nm wavelength) is used for the treatment of active acne, blackheads, and congestion. This light is responsible for killing off the acne causing bacteria found on our skin.

The near infrared (830nm wavelength) is best used to calm inflammation and accelerate healing. This is the setting of choice for reducing acne scars and inflamed acne.

The results shown above are thanks to a combination of at-home skin care prescribed by our Dermal Clinician, and regular LED treatments under the Healite II in just under 3 months.⁠⁠

  1. No Pain and No Downtime

Our Healite II LED Light Therapy has so many benefits, but what’s the biggest bonus? This skin treatment is completely pain-free and there is no downtime! Most people describe it as a similar sensation to laying under the warm sun (but good for your skin!). Most clients also do not realise you get immediate results as well. Immediately after your treatment, skin will appear plumper, more rejuvenated and will be glowing.
