Merry Christmas from the Aloki Skin Team
Welcome to my obligatory end-of-year wrap up! As we approach the end of another remarkable year at Aloki Skin, I want to take a moment to reflect on the incredible journey we have embarked upon together. It has been a year filled with growth, innovation, and most importantly, the privilege of the Aloki Skin team serving your skin and aesthetic needs. Our commitment to providing you treatments and skin care that are at the forefront of the industry, has been unwavering. We have embraced learning opportunities regarding our skincare products, fine tuned our facial protocols and our injecting Doctors have enjoyed numerous hands-on training sessions with Merz and Teoxane. I myself have traveled to Bangkok and Singapore for further education on Ultherapy and as part of a mentorship programme. I have also enjoyed facilitating training sessions for other cosmetic injectors in Sydney and am very much looking forward to holding the very first training event at Aloki Skin for other cosmetic injectors throughout the North Queensland area in early February 2024. At Aloki, we are dedicated to continued development so we can offer you nothing but the best! Jen, Alex and myself also had the pleasure of attending the Cutera University event held at the Gold Coast to learn all things laser to share with our therapists back in clinic. We celebrated our work anniversaries: Sarah S 9 years, Jodie 6 years, Ella 4 years, Dr Di, Alex, Jen and Sarah B 3 years, Tania and Beck 1 year, and we also welcomed the wonderful Dr Jamila to our team. Every client/patient that has walked through our doors have brought their individual stories, desires and aspirations for their skin and appearance. We are all honored to be a part of your stories, no matter how big or small, and to see the boost in confidence and self-esteem that often accompanies our treatment and skincare offerings. As we peer into the horizon of 2024, we are excited about the possibilities it holds. We are always actively researching the latest advancements in the industry to bring our clientele treatments, services and skincare that are even more personalised and align with your individual goals. Myself and the whole Aloki team wish to express our gratitude to each and everyone of you for being an integral part of our journey in 2023. Your trust, support and feedback have been invaluable. Wishing you a joyous festive season and the best of health and happiness for the New Year. Dr Rowena xx
Customised Treatment Plans & Homecare Prescriptions
Our skin is constantly evolving due to seasonal and lifestyle changes, which is why it is so important to continually review and if necessary, change up what you’re currently doing with your routine. Over time, your skin concerns and goals also change, so it is important to make sure that your in clinic treatments & homecare prescription is helping you to achieve your goals. If it's been over six months since your last consultation in clinic with your Skin Therapist, it's time to schedule a review! Alternatively, if you are wanting to start on your skin journey, we recommend booking in for an Aloki Skin Health Consultation. So, what's next? Taking into consideration your skin type, lifestyle factors including diet and exercise, current medications, sun damage and treatment goals, our private and confidential consultations prescribe expert and results driven treatment plans to enhance the natural features and confidence of clients of all ages. Our Skin Therapists utilize a digital imaging system during all consultations to capture a series of images of your skin to form the foundations of our bespoke approach to beautiful skin. Cross-polarised UV lighting is used to record and measure surface and subsurface skin conditions including vascularity, hydration levels, sun damage, wrinkles, pores, skin texture and bacteria. Focusing on the long term health of your skin, your Skin Therapist will use these images to analyse your skins strengths and weaknesses which will form the basis of your treatment plan and homecare prescription. Frequently Asked Questions: Do I really need to have a consultation? A consultation is THE most important part of your treatment journey. By completing your pre-treatment questionnaire, having your photos taken on our Observ machine & by discussing your skins history, concerns & your goals, your Skin Therapist can tailor a program to your exact needs to deliver the best results specifically for you. How much does a consultation cost? An Aloki Skin Health Consultation is a 45 minute session and is $75, which is then fully redeemable on your first skin treatment. For all existing clients wanting to review their current treatment plan & homecare regime, we offer a complimentary 30 minute review. Can I have a consultation and a treatment on the same day? Depending on our availability, we are able to book you in for a consultation and treatment on the same day. What is the Observ 520x? The Observ 520x is a state-of-the-art skin analysis system that assists your Skin Therapist with an accurate skin condition diagnosis at both the epidermal and dermal layer. The Observ 520x captures redness, pigmentation, surface texture, vascular conditions, inflammation, hydration levels and oil flow, which then allows your Skin Therapist to develop a tailored treatment plan to suit your individual needs and concerns. For all existing clients, we recommend beginning with reviewing your treatment plan and homecare regime every 6 months to ensure that it is still current and addressing your concerns.

Our Receptionist Tania's Pigmentation Treatment Journey
Our receptionist Tania takes us on her treatment journey! “My main concerns with my skin are pigmentation, ageing, and fine lines & wrinkles. After viewing the images taken of my skin on the Observ machine during my Skin Health Consultation, it was very easy to see the damage to my skin from many years of not wearing sunscreen. My current homecare prescription consists of: Morning: ASAP Gentle Cleansing Gel – I love how it maintains the moisture balance of my skin. It is very calming and soothing due to the antioxidants, White Tea and Aloe Vera. ASAP Super B Complex – I find the high concentration of Niacinamide helps boost collagen production. It is full of powerful active ingredients that help with my skins hydration levels and signs of ageing. ASAP Super C – This serum combines high levels of Vitamin C and powerful antioxidants that work together to suppress melanin production. It also helps even out my skin tone. Vitamin Rich Repair – I have started trying this product as my moisturizer. I find it very light and extremely nourishing. It softens the appearance of fine lines and assists with the rebuilding and restoration of my skin. Mesoestetic Melan 130 Pigment Control SPF – I will not leave the house without applying this product! I love how light weight it is and the fact that it is also tinted. Evening: ASAP Gentle Cleansing Gel – Double cleanse to remove makeup. ASAP Liquid Platinum – I love this overnight regeneration treatment. It gently dissolves dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production. It has helped reduce the appearance of pigmentation, resulting in brighter looking skin. ASAP DNA Renewal Treatment - This treatment assists in boosting cell renewal to smooth the fine lines and boost hydration. Vitamin Rich Repair Cosmelan 2 Cream – I’ve recently started using this product as a spot treatment at night. It is a depigmenting topical cream that has an intensive corrective action on hyperpigmentation to inhibit and control the appearance of dark spots. I have definitely seen a change to the pigmentation spots on my face. My treatment prescription: I have been having regular MicroHydrabrasion treatments, which is one of my favourite facials. It leaves my skin feeling extremely hydrated and fresh and the results are visible immediately. I am looking forward to adding the PhotoRejuvenation Facial to my treatment plan over the coming months. This laser treatment is a non-invasive approach for the treatment of imperfections associated with premature ageing and sun damage. By combining the treatments and products prescribed by my Skin Therapist, my skin journey is allowing me to reach my skin goals. I’m looking forward to continuing to see results with my skin over the coming months!”

Team Member Spotlight: Dermal Therapist Jodie
“I’ve worked in the beauty industry since completing my Diploma of Beauty Therapy in 2008. I learnt very quickly that my main interest was skin biology and how our skin is so heavily affected by our own internal health as well as the external environment. This interest led me to achieve my Diploma in Dermal Science, as well as a professional certificate in integrated health and dermatology. I am extremely passionate about helping my clients find the right skin care regime and treatment plan that’s completely tailored to them, that allows their skin to feel and look as healthy as possible” – Jodie. Favourite Treatment: Dermapen is my favourite skin treatment! It’s safe and effective for almost all skin types, colours and conditions. It’s like having a magic pen that can reduce the depth of scarring and wrinkles, brighten pigmentation and smooth overall skin texture. Favourite Product: I’ve been loving the ASAP Liquid Platinum lately. The AHA complex refines the skin texture and brightens the complexion whilst the inclusion of saccharide isomerate and arginine improve skin hydration and repair. I apply at night, twice a week and I wake up with glowing skin every time. Jodie’s Hobbies: I’m not sure I have any particularly interesting hobbies. I love to read non fiction and listen to podcasts. I have two small children and a partner who works FIFO, so with any time I have to myself I like to just put on a TV series, lay down and eat snacks!
