The cooler weather is upon us again, and everybody is feeling the pinch when it comes to looking and feeling our best. Between warm, hearty meals and the shorter, chillier days, motivation to exercise is way down while the numbers on the scale creep up. Our skin dries out, and we’re hiding our unshaven legs! We decided to look at ways to keep your edge over the cooler months with Chrysalis Medispa in Townsville, QLD.

Chrysalis Medispa is the home of Dr Mark Vucak, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, and they offer a tailored, customised approach for each and every one of their patients with the latest and most effective treatments on the market, so we check out some of their most popular.

Dermapen Skin Needling

We’ve already called 2017 the year of skin needling and Chrysalis agree. Dermapen is one of the better ones on the market and skin needling, whilst it might sound a little scary, is actually not nearly as painful as it sounds. It’s also said to be as effective, if not more so, than laser. It works by tiny, micro needles perforating your skin which encourages a natural healing response and triggers collagen growth. It promotes smoother, tighter, glowing skin and can reduce fine lines as well as help with pigmentation and more.


Katherine and Mirjana, Chrysalis therapistsPRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is basically the term for the nutrient rich serum derived from your own blood, spun, infused with skin loving ingredients and then injected back into your skin to promote skin healing and rejuvenation. This is a wonder treatment for the skin and literally leaves you glowing and feeling like brand new.

Fractional ablative laser

It can’t be disputed that laser can do some pretty amazing things. Fractional ablative is the most effective for brightening complexion by plumping the skin from below and can also help with repairing photodamage, skin imperfections and generally improving skin health.


Chrysalis Medispa Coolsculpting roomAlso known as Cryolipolysis, or fat-freezing, coolsculpting involves cooling fat deposits to certain temperatures for a specific time. As fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than skin cells, the fat deposits die off and are expelled from the body, leaving the surface tissue unharmed. It isn’t just a temporary fix either. As the fat cells in the targeted area are actually killed off and removed from the body, that area is no longer capable of the same level of fat storage, resulting in a permanent fat reduction in the treated area.

Although some people have reported seeing improvement in as little as four weeks, results can typically be seen after about twelve to sixteen weeks, meaning you’ll be looking great when spring rolls around and it’s time to hit the beach.
