Restoration of collagen with Platelet Treatments and Radiofrequency is the cornerstone of our facial beautification plans.


Preface also offers the latest in Fat Transfer Treatments, Injectables, Chemical Peels, Cosmeceuticals and Tattoo Removal.


Preface offers immediate personalised treatment packages for special occasions such as weddings incorporating Laser Facials, LED lights and Chemical Peels to make your skin glow before, during and after the event without any downtime.


Healing time is enhanced after all our treatments with Light Therapy, Face Masks and Skin Infusions.

Surgical Procedures

Surgical procedures offered by Dr Hollenbach are targeted at rejuvenating your brows, lids, cheeks and chins by trimming away unwanted skin as well as tightening, lifting and adding volume through Fat Transfer techniques.


In the range of injectables, Preface offers Dermal Fillers and Anti-wrinkle injections, but our preference are for more permanent treatments including Fat Transfers and Platelet Therapy proven to volumise and reduce fine lines in a more natural way.

Laser Treatments

Preface has selected the most comprehensive and technologically advanced range of state-of-the-art lasers for cosmetic facial needs. Preface has six single platform lasers for pigment, redness, acne and rejuvenation. Preface does not believe in the philosophy of multi-platform lasers that try to deal with all skin problems with a multi purpose laser.

Tattoo Removal

Preface Cosmetic are pleased to offer Newcastle and Singleton locals a safe, reliable and highly experienced option for Tattoo Removal.

Skin Consultation & Skin Health

At Preface, we take our skin consultations to a new level using imaging technology such as the Visua Camera which shows sun damage, broken capillaries, redness, pore size on your face before and after treatment. Our Vectra Camera can do 3D facial rendering. Our Dermal Therapists will then offer you appropriate treatment plans which may include Surgery, Laser, Collagen Treatments, Chemical Peels, Light Therapy, Microdermabrasions with Infusions, Laser Facials and Cosmeceuticals.
