When shopping around for pricing for cosmetic injectable procedures, make sure to do your research beforehand! A variety of registered healthcare professionals may administer injectable, so always confirm the qualifications and experience of the consulting doctor or nurse. It is important to have a face to face consultation with the doctor before undergoing any treatment to ensure you feel comfortable with them. It’s important to understand which products are being recommended to you and why; how long the effects will last; the time it takes to see results; and the risks and benefits associated with the product. Ask about the research and evidence behind the product, and whether it’s listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods regarding the specific part of the face where its use is being suggested, as not all products are approved for use in all areas.
It is so important to ask the following:
- How many years’ experience do your cosmetic injectors have?
- Do your cosmetic injectors attend regular and up to date training?
- Are your treatments administered by nurses or doctors?
- What is the quality or brand of product used?
By asking these questions you can be assured to get maximum benefits out of your treatment, and know that you are in great hands!
