The Skin Institute

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

As many people already know, The Skin Institute is the non surgical arm of Brighton Plastic Surgery and is located right next door.  It is the place to visit if you are thinking that you would like to enhance your appearance or skin quality but are not looking to have surgery at this time. That said, many of Mr Mutimer’s patients are also clients of The Skin Institute.

The two practices work very closely together to ensure the best result for those who seek improvement in skin quality and overall appearance.  For Mr Mutimer’s clients who opt to also seek treatment at The Skin Institute it can best be summed up as Mr Mutimer is the one who looks after the quantity of skin and The Skin Institute looks after the quality of skin. 

The Skin Institute is staffed by an experienced team including Michelle, Pauline and Colette who are all registered nurses who have worked in the operating theatre with Mr Mutimer for more than 10 years.  This experience working closely with Mr Mutimer has given The Skin Institute staff the benefit of knowing his expectations inside out.   The nursing experience also means that the staff are well equipped to talk about some of the procedures performed at Brighton Plastic Surgery. Working alongside the registered nurses are also Georgia, Eva, Tracey and Fiona.

The Skin Institute offers complimentary consultations.  At this initial consult and depending on your individual needs, a qualified practitioner will provide advice on skin care, skin treatments such as laser and peels, hair removal and acne and wrinkle treatments. All products and procedures utilised are of the highest standard and endorsed by Mr Mutimer.

treatment for excessive sweating

Well summer is almost over and what a warm one it has been.  For some people (approximately 1% of the population) the typical thing we like to grumble about during the warmer months (sweating a bit too much) is a year round complaint.

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a condition that affects both men and women equally. More extreme cases of hyperhidrosis can be quite debilitating – resulting in the need to change outfits multiple times a day, limiting social and work life opportunities and may cause low self-esteem. The condition is not limited to the warmer summer months when the body naturally has to work a little harder to cool itself down.

Hyperhidrosis is most common on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and in the under arm area. Our body sweats as a natural cooling mechanism, hyperhidrosis occurs when one’s body produces more sweat than is necessary.  

There are several excessive sweating treatment options available however before a treatment plan is developed medical causes must always be ruled out.  One of the most popular treatment options for excessive sweating is injections into the area, which reduce excessive sweating dramatically, targeting the specific glands that are the source of the problem.

These injections work by blocking the chemical signals from nerves that stimulate sweat production. When the signal stops, so too does the excessive sweating. This treatment is most common in the under arm area and to treat excessive sweating of the forehead.  Treatment is very effective – usually resulting in significant reduction in sweating that can last up to 6 months from just one treatment.

Treatment for excessive sweating at Brighton Plastic Surgery is performed by Mr Mutimer in his consulting rooms.  To find out more or to book a consultation submit an enquiry via our site or phone 03 9592 0522.

The Inaugural Friends of Interplast fundraising dinner was recently held at The Carousel in Albert Park.

The dinner aims to raise much needed funds for Interplast’s work in repairing bodies and rebuilding lives across the Asia Pacific Region.

As President of Interplast, Mr Mutimer spoke at the event and is pictured below alongside recently announced ambassador, and rising AFLW star, Jess Hosking.

The evening was a huge success with funds raised being used to create the 'Friends of Interplast' Program. This will involve sending a surgical team overseas where approximately 30- 50 patients will receive life changing surgery, as well as opportunities for Interplast volunteers to build capacity and provide ongoing training.
