With the continual rise in popularity of cosmetic treatments, it’s no surprise that customers have many options to choose from and as advances continue to be made, this trend is unlikely to end anytime soon. From professional cosmetic clinics, down to salons and spas, if you’re searching for dermal fillers in Cairns, the chances are, you will have a mix of options to consider. The challenge is deciding who you trust to treat what is arguably, the most noticeable part of the body. The face.

It doesn’t matter whether you are looking for lip fillers or cheek enhancements, or any another form of face rejuvenation. Experience, skill and selecting the right product is vital to achieve a positive result so you can hold your head up high.

Having worked in the industry for nearly 20 years, we’ve seen some pretty awful outcomes from other companies. We’ve also had to correct many treatments which have gone wrong that distraught customers have received elsewhere. And this is why experience matters.

Why does experience matter when it comes to fillers?

You would be surprised how frequently we are presented with a horror story. From painful lip injections with hard lumps and poorly placed fillers, through to excessive and unnecessary bruising, we’ve seen it all. This is why it feels necessary experience is for those who may be looking for their first filler treatment in Cairns. Or even for those who have been accepting ‘OK’ results rather than ‘wow’ results.

You wouldn’t go to a plumber to fix your electrics. Neither would you let a trainee cut your hair without supervision from a qualified hairdresser.

The same applies when you are looking for injectable treatments, whether that’s for lip enhancements, or to treat lines and wrinkles. If you are looking for dermal filler injections, you need the experience and skill of a licensed cosmetic nurse. And here’s why.

Facial anatomy
Whilst most people understand that dermal fillers are injected into the skin, they may not appreciate the complexity of the practice. Having to navigate through the various layers of the skin and around veins, vessels and muscles. Like a road map, these all vary depending on the face structure and the areas treated.

Knowing what leaver to pull and which ones to avoid, can make the difference between achieving that natural aesthetic you are seeking versus a harsh, over-worked appearance. In the worst-case scenario, the health implications can be severely damaging such as blurred vision or the filler entering your bloodstream.

An experienced professional who has been thoroughly trained in cosmetic injectables, such as our registered nurses, will be aware of these implications. Similarly, we know how to achieve great results.

With all our clients, we spend time completing facial assessments and discussing different treatment options, that compliment your face structure rather than working against it.

Product selection
Just like most things in life, there are several dermal filler products on the market. Some are great, and some not so great.

At Ageless Cosmetic Bar, we only use Hyaluronic Acid and Bio-Stimulating fillers.

As Hyaluronic Acid is naturally occurring in the body, found in your skin and cartilage, the results we can achieve are often better. We are licensed Allergan JUVÉDERM® practitioners, working with a collection of five variants to meet your specific needs.

Bio-Stimulating fillers are great for achieving volume in a natural and long-lasting way, reducing wrinkles whilst it also smooths and plumps the skin.

Our experience and training ensure that we know which injectable gel to use for each part of the face to achieve the desired end result.

There are a number of risks when choosing an inexperienced injector. They could be working with an inferior material or using the injectable outside of its recommended specification or approved use. In either of these scenarios, the results and your health could be at risk.

Minimise risks and side effects
Dermal fillers, like many cosmetic injectables are a prescription medication, in other words they are a controlled drug. An experienced cosmetic injector with a registered medical qualification will help you understand the risks and side effects that could occur as part of the treatment.

More importantly, they will know how to avoid or minimise these risks and side effects. For example, maintaining a sterile environment will significantly reduce the likelihood of infection.

Whilst there are standard side effects to be aware of, every person is different. Your health, age and even what you do for a living, can impact the precautions you may need to follow during or after the treatment. A qualified nurse will be able to identify these during your consultation and ensure you have all the facts before anything is applied to the skin.

In the unlikely event something does happen, our Prescribing Doctor is available 24/7 should any post treatment medical support be required.

Results that turn heads

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to add volume to your cheeks, lips or are seeking wrinkle treatments. A professional cosmetic injector will utilise their training, skill, experience and product selection to create results that turns heads, for the right reasons!

As the saying goes ‘you get what you pay for’. If you are looking for dermal filler treatments in Cairns and the price is too good to be true, you may be paying in other ways.
