Dr Scott Turner, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon based in Dee Why, NSW have reopened their Medispa. Skin Therapist Ivana Ben has returned due to popular patient demand. She consults from Dee Why on Monday & Thursday and her Balgowlah Clinic Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturdays. Dr Turner’s newly appointed, state of the art facilities in their Dee Why practice are luxurious and host the newest technology. Ivana is known for her individualised patient service and is able to tailor specific skin care and rejuvenation programs for each client so they get the results they want.
We spoke to Ivana to ask her some questions as to what treatments they have in the Medispa and why we should book in for a consultation.
PSH: What range of non-surgical treatments do you offer at the MediSpa?
Ivana: Skin assessment/consultation, photo-rejuvenation (with IPL), chemical peels and light peels, customised skin treatments and facials, microdermabrasion, permanent hair reduction (IPL), injectables, CoolSculpting and VelaShape III body contouring and cellulite treatment.
PSH: What are your favourites/most popular treatments and why?
Ivana: Most popular are correction of skin imperfections such as pigmentation, rosacea, acne and wrinkles with chemical skin peels. Another very popular procedure is injectables (such as fillers & Anti-Wrinkle Injections) to target loss of volume in lips and cheek areas and also unwanted wrinkles. We are currently working with Aspect Dr. and Cosmedix cosmeceutical skin care which I find patients love because they are effective, beautiful products and are affordable for all patients.
I personally love to treat patients with CoolSculpting because it is firstly effective and noninvasive, but it is a great journey for the patient and lovely to share with them. I personally have a huge passion for skin health, so any facial or treatment concerning the dermis I could do all day – also another rewarding journey for both the patient and myself.
PSH: What is your background/experience/training and how important is this in your role with Dr Scott Turner’s clinic offering the non-surgical treatments?
Ivana: I have worked with three Sydney based plastic surgeons over the last 9 years, and have 18 years experience in the industry. I am a fully qualified/trained Skin Therapist working with procedures such as skin needling and skin treatments through to laser for face and body, body shaping procedure and Patient Coordinator roles.
Dr Turner and I have a great rapport. He understands my passion for patient care and good skin health. The importance of my role in Dr Turner’s practice offering non surgical treatments complements our patients’ journey within our practice. It not only gives them options as to what approach may suit them best but also the Medispa is a place where they can have long term skin and body care without having to look elsewhere. This is where they can build a long term professional relationship with the Medispa.
Ivana: We have an event coming up with Cosmedix and their treatments in the first week of December which will be by invitation to our existing patient database.
All new clients and patients will be offered a Complimentary Skin Consultation and Assessment and face imaging on the Vectra with myself.
PSH: How much does it usually cost for an initial consultation?
Ivana: Skin consultation is $45 (redeemable with a treatment booking or skin care purchase). If you are seeing Dr Turner for injectables contact the clinic and they will discuss with you what you are looking for on a case by case basis.
PSH: Ivana, are you the only practitioner in the non-surgical part of the clinic, or do you have other practitioners working there with you?
Ivana: I am the only Dermal Therapist, however our Nurse also does CoolSculpting procedures and we have Darren who does face laser on patients.
