FAQ

Are the practitioners at Laser Skin & Vein Clinic medically trained?

All of our practitioners are Doctors or Nurses (RN/EN) who are currently registered with AHPRA and have received extensive training in cosmetic clinic practices. Training is ongoing to ensure we are all skilled in the latest techniques.

 

What are the best ways to remove veins on faces/legs?

Face veins are treated using the Norseld Copper Bromide laser. On the other hand, leg veins have not been shown to respond well to laser and must be injected with an irritant solution (sclerotherapy). Results are achieved approximately 6 weeks after both treatments.

 

Will dermal fillers or wrinkle injections make me look unnatural and will people notice I have had them?

The goal of most treatments is to reduce unwanted wrinkles, softening excessive lines caused by facial expressions and restoring the volume lost due to ageing. The result should always be natural. A conservative approach to treatment will help to achieve a natural look, often over a series of sessions and according to a mutually agreed upon treatment plan.

 

How big are the needles used for treatments and do they hurt?

The needles used for many of our treatments are very tiny and less painful than usual medical injections. Additionally, the practitioner may apply topical numbing cream or use products that contain anaesthetic to make the treatment more comfortable.

 

Can I get a quote over the phone? Why do I need a consultation?

As all of our treatments are individualised, it is important that we assess you in person and obtain a medical history to ascertain your needs and suitability. We must also review your expectations for treatment. Therefore, we can only provide a rough guide of costs over the phone.

 

What if I have a reaction to a treatment?

All reactions or issues can be dealt with promptly by medically-trained staff who understand the risks associated with treatment. Our after-hours contact number is usually the doctor’s.

 

Am I too young or too old to have these treatments?

While the answer to this question depends on your unique circumstances, laser treatment is usually suitable for patients of all ages.

Fillers and toxin injections for the prevention of lines and treatment of established wrinkles can be performed on patients between the ages of 18 and 80. While it is never too soon or too late, your expectations have to be realistic.

 

Why do you use lasers and not IPL?

Lasers produce monochromatic light (a specific wavelength) and can be either ablative or non-ablative. All of our lasers are Class 4 medical grade non- ablative, with different wavelengths targeting specific skin issues. Sometimes more than one laser is required for a skin problem. While an IPL (intense pulsed light) may be used for similar indications, it usually requires more treatment sessions to achieve the same result.

 

Are fillers with botulinum toxin and lasers harmful to me in the future?

There is no evidence to support any harmful effects of lasers or dermal fillers injections (of the temporary type used in this clinic) in the long term.

 

Does Medicare or private health cover any of my treatment costs?

A few specific conditions may be covered or partially-covered by Medicare or private health insurance, but most are not. Your doctor will inform you if rebates are applicable.
