TREATMENTS TECHNICAL INFO

If you are booking or undergoing any of the procedures below, please read the important information.

 

Please contact us if you have any questions, queries, or concerns.

DERMAL FILLERS

Injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) is a type of temporary dermal filler. These Injectable HA fillers help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fill out facial folds, and help to build underlying structure and framework including volume to the facial areas. The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are seen immediately. Side effects are rare with HA's. There maybe local injection site reactions, generally resulting from an acute inflammatory response to tissue damage combined with the introduction of a foreign material (HA). This may include swelling, pain, tenderness and bruising. These effects last a short time.

 

The face is a complex structure of nerves, blood vessels and veins. It is extremely important that the practitioner is knowledgeable regarding the facial structures. A signed consultation form is required before any treatments can commence. It is vitally important that we discuss the possible side effects of all treatment with clients so they can make a well informed choice.

ANTI WRINKLE TREATMENTS

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Once injected, the toxin prevents the release of a neurotransmitter from the nerve endings at the neuromuscular junction. This causes paralysis of the muscle. This is perfect to help soften lines and wrinkles and the underlying muscle is not active. 

 

The effects from Botulinum toxin will last approximately 3 to 6 months. As muscle action slowly returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and the area will need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because of muscle atrophy (muscle waste due to lack of use). There are some side effects of Botulinum toxin, these include pain and swelling at the injection point, headache or flu-like symptoms, eye dryness and possibility of brow droop. 

MICRO/SKIN NEEDLING

Like all cosmetic procedures, micro/skin needling isn’t without any risk. The most common side effect is minor skin irritation immediately following the procedure. You may also experience redness for a few days after treatment. Call your aesthetics practitioner if you notice more severe side effects, such as:

  • bleeding

  • bruising

  • infection

  • peeling

If you have any of the following contra-indications, you may not be a suitable candidate for micro/skin needling if you:

  • are pregnant

  • have certain skin diseases, such as psoriasis or eczema

  • have open wounds

  • have active acne

  • have had radiation therapy recently

  • have a history of skin scars

  • have active cancer

SKIN PEELING

There are risks to chemical peels, but however infrequent these may be, there can be complications. These include:

  • Scarring

  • Infection

  • Permanent or temporary changes in skin and tone. These can include Hyperpigmentation (a darkening of the skin which can be treated with bleaching techniques) and Hypopigmentation (a lightening of the skin which can be more difficult to treat)

  • Cold sores or recurring blisters and cold sores like herpes. An antiviral medication taken before treatment will help prevent a breakout.

 

You should not have a chemical peel if you:

  • Continue to have excessive sun/sunbed exposure

  • Have active Herpes Simplex, Warts or a history of Keloid scarring

  • Undergone any type of recent facial surgical procedures

  • Pregnant or Lactating

  • Used Accutane (a medication for severe acne) in the last year which will increase the chances of excessive scarring.

  • Are taking a high dose B5 supplement

  • Have any autoimmune diseases

  • Have had any recent Chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments

  • Have broken skin, sunburn, or have recently had waxing treatments
