Skin Temple Medical Wellness

For 20 years, Dr Alicia Teska has provided gold standard skincare services to patients from across Victoria and interstate. Our wellness centre turns 10 years old this year, and whilst wanting to share this milestone with our loyal clientele, we have also had to reinvent our birthday celebrations due to social distancing needs. Now is the time to discover for yourself what the signature Skin Temple VIP membership can do to improve value for money in the cosmetic skincare world. To celebrate our tenth birthday, and give thanks to our loyal patients, we’re giving away $250 credit to every VIP member joining or renewing in this financial year! Please ask reception for further details.

In this unprecedented era of the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve also decided to broaden our wellness services to include not just acne, varicose vein and skin cancer management, but a full range of vaccination services, including influenza, as a critically urgent area of medical need.  Supporting the frontline medical staff, wherever they may be, is now up to all of us. And at Skin Temple, 20years of botulinum toxin storage means that we know cold chain management really really well.   We have 2 vaccine fridges PLUS a portable vaccine fridge for home visits.

I urge you to consider getting your full vaccination status reviewed this year. From July, we are offering bulk-billing consults for all vaccination only consults. Flu vaccines are still available and worth redoing if you are in a high risk group and had your shot early this year. If not for yourself, please do it for the elderly, the vulnerable and those babies still without a voice. Yes, we also vaccinate newborns! Home visits available.

This year, we have devised some unique and never before offered packages combining our hammam services with Healite LED facials (no therapist required) so that anyone currently going through significant stress (pretty much all of us!) or a flare up of acne, can enjoy a few minutes of ‘time out’. Catering for all budgets, I think you’ll all agree that there’s never been a better time for a dose of luxury escapism.

Speaking of stress, did you know that Dr Teska is a qualified Mental Health Care Plan provider?  With a particular interest in adolescent mental health that stems from both her own experience working at the Centre for Adolescent Health many years ago, and that of being a parent to a teenager, we welcome referrals specifically for high risk teenagers struggling in these uncertain times. All mental health care plans are bulk billed for teenagers, university students and Health Care Card holders.

We look forward to welcoming you to Skin Temple one day soon. Please see the sidebar info for mandatory screening procedures now in place.
