Getting older is inevitable but looking your age does not have to be. In a world full of technologically advanced skincare and treatments we really do not have to settle for looking our age. With all the different treatments and creams available today, it can get quite confusing as to what treatment does what and more importantly what treatment is right for you.

With Summer just around the corner, I want to get my skin into the best shape possible.

Achieving a glowing, clear and smooth skin is at the top of my list and a combination treatment approach is key here – this means combining a few of the best treatments to achieve better results. I often get asked what treatment program I follow so below is my own personal skin care regimen that I will be following over the next 12 weeks.

Cherie Cochrane consultation

My Face

Treatments needed : 

  • 3x BBL  
  • 1x DERMAPEN  
  • 3x SKINTYTE 

Neck Area

In order to really improve the neck area I have a perfected a protocol that really works, I combine 3 different technologies at the same time- these treatment are Skintyte / Dermapen / Microlaserpeel . This combination is fantastic for smoothing out lines and crepiness on the neck and giving the skin an overall smooth appearance.

Number of treatments will vary from patient to patient depending on the degree of improvement needed.

Products I will be using:

  • Mornings – potent antioxidant serum in the morning followed by my moisturizer and sunblock . 
  • Evenings – Retinol/ Tretinoin cream to resurface and smooth out my skin. 
  • Post treatment- I add in a recovery cream for 1 week post laser to add extra moisturize and increase my skins healing ability.

Here is more information on the treatments I will be doing on my skin:

Skin Boosters

Restylane Skin Boosters are all over-all micro-injection technique that puts long lasting Hyaluronic Acid right into the skin to make it plumper and more even. Restalyane skinboosters are clinically proven to:

  • Increase skin elasticity and give firmer skin
  • Smooth and soften skin
  • Reduce fine lines
  • Lessen imperfections, such as acne scars
BBL (Broadband Light)
BBL Face (Before After)BroadBand Light (BBL) is the most versatile light device that provides skin renewal, permanent hair reduction, targets sun spots, diminishes vascular lesions and helps control acne. BBL™ from Sciton, a revolutionary treatment that sends light energy deep into the skin to boost your body’s natural ability to fight aging. The result? Skin that’s visibly younger looking, year after year! This intense pulse light therapy can provide benefits on any area of the body.
Micro Laser Peels

A MicroLaserPeel is a form of superficial skin resurfacing which produces great results with minimal downtime. A Micro Laser Peel uses laser to remove a thin layer of damaged skin, encouraging the growth of collagen. This leads to improved skin texture and a more youthful appearance. After a laser peel, the thin layer of damaged skin will be removed and it will be replaced with smooth, tight skin. Micro Laser Peels provide the best results because it can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome. 


SkintyteThis is one of my favourite all year-round tightening treatments it is completely safe to do in Summer as well. The SkinTyte treatment is based on the principle of selective thermolysis and utilizes pulsed light technology. It deeply heats your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. SkinTyte can be performed quickly, safely comfortably and with no downtime. The end result is a more youthful appearance.


Dermapen is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. It’s also called skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI)

If you are ready to kickstart your skincare regime, come in for a consultation so we can customize the treatment program specially to your skins needs.
