Your face is one of your most precious and important areas of your body. It's the first thing people see when they meet you and its used to convey emotions & feelings without a word being spoken. In recent years the cosmetic medicine sector within Australia has grown substantially with many new entrants in the market. What many of my patients don't realise though is that not every clinic is equal.
Like with any arm of medicine, the practice of cosmetic medicine places trust upon the practitioner. Trust that the practitioner will advise the best available treatment to address the patients concerns, trust that the practitioner will utilize the best available treatment and trust that the practitioner performs the treatment in a safe environment.
To help make your decision when choosing a cosmetic clinic easier I have compiled some key questions you should always ask before undergoing a treatment.
Most often I see patients who don't realise cosmetic treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are classified as Schedule 4 medicines. Just like the medications your General Practitioner would prescribe - Schedule 4 medications can only be prescribed by a doctor who understands how the treatment works, its benefits and side effects.
Like any field of medicine, cosmetic medicine is constantly evolving. Treatments and best practices are always improving for the better. As a patient this means you can enjoy better results, less downtime and safer treatments.
One of the most important factors in choosing a cosmetic doctor is ensuring they understand & address your concerns.
You may need to do a little research, however, it is far better to be well-informed and pay for the expertise, safety & quality your cosmetic practitioner offers.
