Your First Cosmetic Injection? | Doctor Explains What You Need to Know 💉

Are you considering cosmetic injectables? In today’s episode I talk through some vital pointers to consider before letting the needle touch your skin.

CHAPTERS

0:00 Introduction

0:24 Why

2:30 Goals

4:23 Budget

7:52 Timing

10:58 Research

13:16 Choosing Your Injector

17:20 Conclusion

Tip 1 - Why

When you consider cosmetic injectables, it’s important to know your motivations. Are you thinking of having a surgical procedure and you want to test the waters? Are you following a trend on social media? Is it peer pressure from colleagues at work? Or is it something deeper than that, perhaps you’re unhappy about something and by changing you’ll get a confidence boost.

By establishing your ‘why’ it’ll help you to better understand your motivations and whether it really is the right thing for you.

Tip 2 - What is your goal

Before embarking on any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to think thoroughly about what you want to achieve. Are you thinking of a dramatic change or a subtle change? It makes it easier for your injector if you bring in a photo of something that you would desire to have. This way both you and the injector can be on board and establish whether the goals are realistic.

Tip 3 - Budget

Whilst cosmetic injectables are cheaper than permanent surgical procedures, they still add up and can be quite pricey. Some clinics will advertise cheap injectables but this should always make you think twice as sometimes they are cheap for a reason, and very often the cheapest ends up being the most expensive. It’s important to speak with your practitioner about your budget so that a degree of forward planning can be made.

Tip 4 - Timing

This is a vital aspect to consider. You should know that cosmetic procedures take time to settle. Anti-wrinkle injections take up to 2 weeks to settle and sometimes there may be complications, for example, if the product migrates this can lead to drooping eyelids or brows, this alone can take a few weeks to settle after the treatment. We always advise if you are having injectables - whether dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle, to at east wait please wait 6-8 weeks prior to an event.

Not only is it important to plan ahead for events, but it is also important to think about timing in your life. If you are about to undergo a weight loss journey, dermal fillers may not be the most effective use of your money. It could be worthwhile waiting to complete your weight loss journey and then consider dermal fillers thereafter. With regards to anti-wrinkle treatments, these can be done during your weight loss journey, but be aware that your metabolism may be changing and so the longevity may be altered. Be sure to always seek the advice from your cosmetic practitioner for an individual treatment plan.

Tip 5 - Research

Cosmetic injectables may seem straightforward but they are not without their own risks. Your cosmetic practitioner should discuss these with you fully prior to consenting to the procedure. On a simplistic level, as a needle is used, it may cause bruising, bleeding and inflammation. More serious complications can occur, for dermal fillers, there may be granulomas or nodule formations, or even more seriously skin cell death and possible blindness. For anti-wrinkle injections, this may include product migration. For these reasons, it is essential to have full knowledge of what is involved in the procedure before commencing.

Tip 6 - Who is your practitioner

In Australia, Doctors, Dentists or Nurses can be cosmetic practitioners. It is important to find someone that has a wealth of knowledge in facial anatomy so that they know where to inject safely and what to do should there be a complication. Similarly it is important to choose someone who has experience, you may wish to use word of mouth or social media. Though do be careful as pictures can be doctored to appear better than real life.

My final tip is to consider, after all of the above, are cosmetic injectables for you. If the answer is yes, then I wish you the best of luck and please seek a second opinion from an adequately qualified health professional. If you choose that it is not for you then I am glad that this video has helped in your decision making.

Advanced RUSSIAN Lip Filler Techniques | Full Treatment with Before and After 💋💉

In today’s episode I inject 1ml of dermal filler using a multitude of techniques, including the Russian technique, to help Mary on her lip filling journey to plumper, more defined and hydrated lips.

Our beautiful patient today is no stranger to lip fillers and having increased the volume of her lips over a period of time, it was now time to crank up the definition to both the upper and lower lip as well as the cupid’s bow.

To help achieve this 1ml of Hyaluronic Acid based non-permanent filler was used, typically this can last 6-9 months.

After using a strong, specifically compounded doctor prescribed topical anaesthetic cream, a number of lip filler techniques were used:

- Russian Technique, this is the use of vertical tenting along the border of the lips to help give the lips a wider more defined look without loosing the projection of the body. It is best employed in those without previous lip fillers, however, it worked beautifully on our gorgeous model.

- Linear threading within the body of the lips to achieve volume and projection.

- The fanning technique was used with linear threads to minimise the number of injection sites into the lips.

- Finally, structural support to the oral commissures was given to help lift up the corners of the mouth.

To ensure patient satisfaction and symmetry, the lips are assessed regularly. At the end of the treatment, the lips are cleansed with antiseptic cream and moulded into shape.

The patient was shown the before and after pictures instantly using Treatment Pad, an application that can be downloaded on the iOS store.

The outcome is fantastic, the lips look immediately plumper, more defined and hydrated. Needless to say, she was very pleased with the outcome. Be sure to check out the final outcome once her lips are settled over on instagram @drnoracosmetics.

Technology Secrets for Cosmetic Clinics | Beauty & Spa Insiders

Join me behind the scenes of Beauty and Spa Insiders event that was held in Sydney, where I presented and showcased Treatment Pad, an application for cosmetic physicians that uses artificial intelligence to generate better before and after photos.

BEAUTY + SPA INSIDERS

The summit for salon, spa and clinic professionals BEAUTY & SPA Insiders was produced by Australia’s leading B2B magazines for the aesthetics industry, SPA+CLINIC and Professional Beauty. It brought together industry experts for a day of inspiring talks, innovative ideas, and engaging conversations.

TREATMENT PAD

https://treatmentpad.com

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Treatment Pad uses computer vision technologies to aid you in quickly generating before and after photos.

LAYOUT EDITOR

- In the gallery view first select your before and after photos.

- Then press the facial alignment icon to use computer vision to mark and identify facial features detected in the photographs for automatic alignment.

- Use the optional grid overlay for micro-adjustments.

- Tap next to either save the collage to your device or share it.

CAMERA

- In the gallery view tap the camera icon at the bottom to launch the layout camera.

- Select photographs to compare with using the left pane.

- Take photographs with the camera using the right pane.

- Both panes have the facial alignment icon to aid alignment of the photographs.

WHAT THE PRESS ARE SAYING?

With the ever-growing popularity of aesthetic treatments and facial sculpting injectables, producing quality before and after photos has never been more paramount for practitioners. Unfortunately, the slightest change in angle rotation or camera orientation can considerably change how the outcome of a procedure is portrayed in photos, thereby misrepresenting a practitioner’s good work.

How to Stop the Opioid Crisis? | Day in the Life of a Family Doctor

Life as a General Practitioner can be exhilarating, from not knowing what is coming through the door to being a detective when listening and examining patients. In this episode, I take you behind the scenes with me to see what a typical day is like.

In the morning, I kick start my day with a cup of coffee and prepare my equipment on my desk, which comprises of my stethoscope, pen and a bottle of water. I then spend some time checking through my results inbox and see which results should be dealt with urgently or routinely. After this, I take a look at my appointment book so that I have an understanding of what to expect during the day and how to pace myself. Then it’s time to see my lovely patients.

During this particular day, I had a mixed bag of presentations, from routine medical consults, to cosmetic injectables to family planning procedures. In the middle of the day I usually have a long lunch break, however on this day I chose to spend a little more time with my cosmetic injectable patient and you’ll find the treatment video online very soon. The variety of my day makes it very exciting and I thoroughly enjoy the different cases I see. Throughout the day I always ensure that I’m staying hydrated and have time to reflect and write up my notes as I see my patients.
