HOw MUCH is yOUR FACE wORTH? Everyone’s facial anatomy is different. You also need to bear in mind that you are paying for the skill of an experienced doctor to sculpt your lips with your whole face in mind, not just the filler. Cost depends on which filler is used and how many mls are needed. We offer Ezidebit payment plans. FiRsT THiNGs FiRsT... A consultation with a doctor is necessary so they can assess your lips to see if you’re a suitable candidate for dermal fillers and to ensure you receive the best treatment for you. BEsT sUiTED Most people are suitable candidates for lip fillers. People need lip fillers for various reasons, some of these include thin lips, loss of lip volume, asymmetry, or they simply want more definition in their lips when applying lipstick. THE LOwDOwN The treatment itself takes between 30-60 minutes. It involves injecting the filler into and/or around the lip area. All dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic, therefore these treatments are generally well tolerated. Topical anaesthetic cream is used for all lip treatments. HOw OFTEN? The frequency of treatment depends on the look you wish to achieve and for how long. It’s a bit like a brunette wanting to be blonde, she would require more regular visits to the hairdresser to touch up regrowth and maintain the look. For most, only 1ml of lip filler is initially required. If a second ml is required, that treatment can be performed four weeks later. Most people will need two lip treatments in their first year, and one to two treatments per year thereafter. THE REsU LT s Results are seen instantly. The most common response following a lip treatment is, “WOW, my lips are amazing”. Usually there is little to no down time after a treatment, however for some there may be minimal swelling for one to two days or minor bruising which can be easily concealed with lipstick. is iT PERMANENT? The lip fillers we use are not permanent, they are tem- porary gel fillers. Treatments last between 6 to 12 months, depending on whether your lips have been treated before and how much filler is used. wHAT TO REMEMBER If people are considering lip fillers for the first time, they should ensure that the person performing the lip treatment is medically trained, has a keen aesthetic eye, is experienced and has the knowledge to manage any rare complications. This is a medical procedure after all, keep away from budget priced unsupervised injectors, as too often we have seen clients who have come to us to correct the mistakes others have made. DisCOMFORT LEVEL wHy CHOOsE BCsCC? As the BCSCC doctor, I’ve had vast experience with lips, always ensuring the best results are achieved. I’m a perfectionist and I focus on symmetry and balance, keeping in mind that the client still needs to look natural with their lips correctly proportioned to the rest of their face. During the treatment I work with my clients, regularly checking on how they’re feeling and showing them the progress in the mirror. As part of our aftercare, clients are reviewed two weeks after their treatment. At BCSCC we offer a personalised service for all our clients, this includes being contactable after hours, whether they are considering or have had treatment, which many find comforting. We also open up after hours by appointment to accommodate people’s busy work schedules. “The microblading technique creates the most soft, natural looking brows possible.” BROws ON POiNT TREATMENT Eyebrow Cosmetic Tattooing (Microblading) EXPERT Fiona Hunte @ Eyebrow Perfection COsT The smudge-proof solution will cost you anywhere between $450 and $600, but can you place a price tag on perfect brows? eyebrowperfection.com.au FiRsT THiNGs FiRsT... The first part of the process is a consultation, which we conduct at least 48 hours prior to the treatment. This includes a patch test for both anesthetic and pigment, and a discussion on your intended shape and design. BEsT sUiTED Microblading is perfect for those who wish to add a slight arch, fill-in over plucked brows, define, cover gaps or fully reconstruct. THE LOwDOwN Using a specialist hand-held facial tattooing tool, we gently apply ‘hypoallergenic’ pigment and individual strokes to the skin one-by-one. The sensation is that of an electric toothbrush being held against your skin. The extremely meticulous process normally takes about two hours, but it varies from person to person depending on your individual requirements. HOw OFTEN? A second ‘perfection’ appointment is needed six weeks after your first treatment to add any additional pigment to the brow area. Everyone heals differently and some parts may not ‘hold’ as well as others, but whatever the case, we always advise you to come back to the clinic for your retouch. THE REsU LT s Microblading is very low maintenance. After healing, you can wash and even enjoy swimming. No special care is required and the results can last up to 18 months before a quick colour boost is required. The microblading technique creates the most soft, natural looking brows possible. wHAT TO REMEMBER Research your brow expert prior to receiving treatment, look at their previous work and specialised training to ensure they are qualified. Also, it is important to receive a pre- consultation, as you may not be suitable for microblading due to medical history or other underlying factors. DiD yOU KNOw? BROW EMBROIDERY VS FULL COLOUR Microblading is the hair simulation technique that mimics your own eyebrow hairs thus creating a very natural, looking feathering effect. Machine Powder Brows is ideal for those wanting fuller brows as the powder technique mirrors the appearance of brows that are filled in with makeup, such as pencil or powder. Eyebrow Perfection will consult on which treatment is best for you (many clients require a combination of both). DisCOMFORT LEVEL A topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimise discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic. Some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it’s relatively painless. wHy CHOOsE EyEBROw PERFECTiON? I am an experienced and highly educated eyebrow specialist. My extensive training originates from international and well- recognised professionals including Branko Babic of PhiBrows, Tina Davis at Harmony Flow Brows and Rebecca Chung from Princess Brows. Cosmetic tattooing is semi-permanent and is designed to fade. is it permanent?
