Ask your doctor

Nowadays you can get anti-wrinkle and filler injections almost anywhere. But it’s important to protect your precious face, so don’t take any chances and make sure you ask the right questions before choosing a practitioner.

As the popularity of injectables increases, unfortunately, some people have been lured by cheaper, but potentially lethal methods for receiving them (you have probably heard about a similar phenomenon in cosmetic surgery). There are also unscrupulous people out there who simply don’t have the skills or experience to deliver the goods.

So here are the three questions you should always ask:

Who is injecting and what are their qualifications and experience in the field?

Pick someone who is used to delivering injections on a daily basis and is up-to-date with the latest trends and products. It seems obvious, but that way you will know they are using the injectables that are best suited to deliver safe and effective results. They will also know exactly where to inject without causing damage to delicate facial tissues, nerves and structures.

Here at Dr. Face, we’re all highly qualified doctors. Dr. Vilma and Dr. Jane are also certified Allergan trainers, which means they are experts in the field of injectables, teaching Australian and international doctors how to correctly inject anti-wrinkle medication.

Each of us trains constantly to keep up to date with the latest medical research and products available. And we place great emphasis on planning and assessing each patient as an individual, to help you achieve the look you want.

Another the advantages of having a team of highly trained doctors is that we’re able to recognise complications if they occur. Complications are uncommon, and rarely serious, but we’re always on the lookout for them.

Are you using a safe, quality product that is legally compliant?

There are many injectables and fillers out there, and not all of them are effective, safe, or even legal. The quality of product used is crucial to the safety and success of your treatment. It’s not unheard of for patients to be ‘upsold’ into inappropriate treatments and unsafe, or over-diluted product may be used to save on cost.

Again, choosing a medical professional who specialises in the field is vital.

It goes without saying, never, ever use products purchased on the internet and administer them yourself. (Yes, believe it or not, it’s been known to happen!).

What treatment plan would you recommend for me?

Once you have found someone you can trust and feel comfortable with, it’s important to take their advice about the treatment plan that’s right for you. This may mean forgetting about any pre-conceived ideas you may have had (or googled!). Qualified doctors with years of experience in the field, are in the best position to do this.

They will assess each person individually at the first consultation to see whether they’re a suitable candidate for treatments, doing their best to avoid any problems before they occur.

Bearing these things in mind will ensure you’re in safe hands and on track for a successful result. We wish you all the best on the journey…
