Lip fillers are the perfect injectable treatment for shaping, plumping and hydrating your lips.  With natural results, lip fillers can also help with asymmetry, gummy smiles and smokers/lipstick lines.

3 Ways Lip Fillers Can Improve Your Smile

Lip fillers are one of the most popular non surgical aesthetic treatments in the UK today.  Here at Austin Brewer Facial Aesthetics, lip fillers are certainly one of the most requested treatments.  Usually lip fillers are requested to improve the fullness of the lips. But we thought we’d share 3 ways lip fillers can improve your smile with some other very popular concerns. All of which are treated with dermal lip fillers.

It is nearly impossible to open a magazine and not have at least one celebrity, looking back at us with lips that have clearly been enhanced.  Whether they are done well or not is another issue. Ironically it tends to be the lips that have been done well, are actually less noticeable than those that are done badly.  Badly filled lips are so much more obvious and all you notice are the lips, but for all the wrong reasons.

3 ways lip fillers can improve your smile

The right lip fillers for you

Lip fillers should enhance the rest of your facial features and balance with them.  Lip fillers should not over power or look disproportionate to the rest of your face.

When you visit Austin Brewer you can be assured that you are in the best possible hands for your lip filler treatment.  

Creativity and artistry is so very important when you chose your aesthetic practitioner. 

Why a medical practitioner is best for lip fillers

There are a lot of things your practitioner needs to think about when you have lip filler.  Firstly and most importantly there is the medical aspect that needs to be addressed.  There is no getting around the fact that you should only be choosing a medical professional for your injectable treatments.

When you choose correctly, your medically trained injector will have such a deep understanding of what lies beneath your skin. Having the very important knowledge of where all those little veins and arteries is invaluable. 

The complications vary that can arise from someone who doesn’t know what they are doing. Injectors who are not medically trained or that have bad injection technique, both of which can cause permanent damage.  Or incorrectly placed filler that can cause necrosis are not risks worth taking.  On a less medically serious note, but still an important fact. Your lip fillers will not look beautiful and natural they will most likely look fake, unbalanced and lumpy. 

Don’t risk an outcome that could potentially result in your lips looking worse than before you had treatment.  This is where the term “trout pout” or the “duck look” has originated from. Because of injectors that do not know where to place the lip filler. And importantly how to balance the treatment with the rest of your facial features.

Austin Brewer is an artistic and medically skilled lip filler expert.  Over 17 years, he has perfected his art.  Providing his clients with only the most natural and beautiful results. 

So what are the 3 ways lip fillers can improve your smile?, read on to find out more.

Asymmetry in the lips

Although we all have asymmetry in our faces – one side is never identical to the other.  When the asymmetry is in your lips and it’s noticeable, it can be frustrating and sometimes upsetting.  When your lips are very uneven it can even affect your speech and even how you eat.  The causes of lip asymmetry vary, but can include tissue imbalance or muscle weakness.  Lip asymmetry can happen in one or both lips.

Luckily, if you want to make your lips more even, there is a way.  Lip fillers or lip augmentation can provide the answer.  Austin Brewer can use lip injections of Hyaluronic acid to even out the shape of your lips.  Austin will use his creativity and artistry to create symmetry in your lips.  All without making them look too big or fake. The effects are immediate and will last approx 1 year to 18 months. Longevity of lip fillers varies from person to person. Your own health and lifestyle all impact how long they actually will last.  There is little to no downtime as lip fillers are a non surgical procedure.  You will be able to continue with your day after treatment.   Dermal lip fillers are an ideal solution to lip asymmetry. 

Gummy Smile

A gummy smile, technically know as gingival. Happens when you smile and too much of your gum above your top teeth is on show.  Gummy smiles occur for different reasons; short upper lip, excessive gum tissue or small teeth – all of these causes are genetic.  

There are a number of ways that can correct a gummy smile. Surgery, dental work or botox can all be used effectively.  However lip fillers can also help.  By creating a plumper, fuller lip, it will recede less when you smile. Thereby showing less of the gum above the teeth. The added bonus of using dermal fillers for a gummy smile is that they have the added benefit of fixing any fine lines (lipstick or smokers) that you may have around your lips.

Smokers and lipstick lines

Dermal lip fillers are excellent for treating smokers and lipstick lines around the mouth.  Austin Brewer can administer the fillers to give you a subtle improvement in the fullness of your lips. He can define the lip line, also known as the vermillion border. Or he can simply fill the vertical lines around the mouth area.  The exact way the fillers are used to correct the lines around the mouth are unique to the individual. 

Unfortunately these lines can prematurely age the rest of your face. It is best not to wait until the lines are very deep. As treatment for the vertical upper lip lines is much more effective when caught early.  However, deeper one can be treated, along with the other lines that maybe causing concern that surround the mouth area.  The nose to mouth lines also known as nasolabial lines. The mouth to chin lines, these are known as marionette lines.  These dermal filler treatments can also treat what we know as “sad mouth”. The term unfortunately comes due to gravity along with the ageing process.  

3 ways Lip Fillers can improve your smile

The right advice

Austin Brewer will offer you advice that is appropriate for you.  As with all treatments not everyone is the same, which is why Austin offers free consultations.  You can discuss your concerns with a leading aesthetic expert and not feel obligated in any way.  You will then be armed with the knowledge to make a decision that is right for you, and whether you choose to go ahead with a injectable treatment.

Feeling self conscious about your mouth and smile can make a big impact to your life on so many levels.  Not wanting to communicate fully, smile or be expressive is an awful way to feel.  We have put together this “3 ways lip fillers can improve your smile” as a guide to initially provide some options. Austin Brewer can offer you free consultation and full assessment to see if he can help.  Whether it’s with lip fillers or botox for lips or perhaps a combination of the two.  Austin will be able to give you honest advice about what treatments can make the difference to you.

Here at Austin Brewer Facial Aesthetics clinic we want you to feel comfortable at all times.  Your wellbeing is of the utmost importance.  We understand that when you are first looking for an injectable treatment it can be a little daunting.  

Choosing the right practitioner for your lip fillers

When choosing a facial aesthetics practitioner it is always incredibly important, to only allow a medically trained expert with plenty of experience near your face with a needle.  

Dermal fillers in the UK for some inexplicable reason can be administered by beauticians; this as I’m sure you can imagine is not safe.  We would simply say to avoid a beautician offering dermal fillers at all costs.  

Lip fillers are a medically non invasive treatment, inferior product and bad injection technique can end in disaster.  We have had the unfortunate experience too many times, trying to help someone who went for the cheap deal.  You can imagine how upset these people are, when the person who administered the lip filler disappears or blocks them on social media.

Those cheap deals that you see advertised are cheap for a reason. Did you know dermal fillers can be bought online from black market sources for about £3?. Does anyone know what is in them – no. Still interested in that cheap deal?.  

A leading aesthetics practitioner

Austin has over 17 years experience and uses a reputable UK pharmacy with a prescription to obtain dermal fillers for treatments in his clinic. Austin Brewer offers excellent treatments that are fairly priced. You are paying for the expertise to administer the filler and also the medical knowledge to keep you safe if the need should arise.  Please don’t worry though, complications are rare.

When you are a client with Austin Brewer.  Your journey with us for your aesthetic procedure, whether it’s your first or you 91st!! Is always important.  We are always available to answer any questions you may have, no matter how small or crazy you think they may be.  Don’t worry just pick up the phone and ask us.

What do I need to know about getting Lip Fillers near me?

Lip fillers are everywhere and they’re here to stay. So how do you choose which practitioner to let near your face?. Do you just google “Lip fillers near me”. “cheap lip filler” Or “Lip filler price”. What do I really need to know about lip filler?.  

Just like everything in life, there’s the good, the bad & the ugly. The business of facial aesthetics is no different. We are here to give you a few pointers to ensure you stay safe. Austin Brewer has been creating beautiful and natural lips since 2004. From his aesthetics clinic here between Poole and Bournemouth, we know what we are doing, and as Austin says

“I wasn’t nicknamed the – Lip King, by a highly regarded Harley Street colleague for nothing!”

The best lip fillers…

…are the ones that suit your face. By using a reputable product such as Juvederm® and using a trained medical professional to administer the filler. How do I make my lips look bigger? How do I make my lips look more even? Where can I get lip filler near me? Deals on lip filler? All of these questions are on everyone’s lips (excuse the pun!). More about being wary on cheap lip fillers and questionable deals later.

The important fact to note is that Austin Brewer has been established at his private clinic near Sandbanks in Poole for over 16 years. During that time has been trained by the world leaders in the industry.  Non surgical facial aesthetics (lip fillers, Botox, etc) are all he does all day every day. He has built his business proud of the fact, that his patients wellbeing is always the most important factor. And of course his excellent results speak for themselves.

The first most important factor to mention here first is No Reputable Aesthetic Practitioner will offer “Deals”. Neither will they agree to sharing product. So please respect your face and your wellbeing and find a practitioner not solely based on the price point.

What do I need to know before a lip augmentation treatment?

There are a lot of questions you will have when wanting to get lip fillers for the first time. Maybe you have moved to a new area and are not sure where to start. If you know people that have procedures, then you can see the practitioners work first hand. You can then organise a consultation and ask as many questions as you wish.  

Another note, be wary of practitioners who take “deposits” for consultations, that is then redeemable against any treatment. Suppose you choose not to have the work done with them?. You have essentially just paid for your consultation. Or worse you will feel that you have to go ahead with treatment just so you don’t lose your deposit. Just a cautionary note worth bearing in mind.  

We are very proud here at Austin Brewer. We are one of the few facial aesthetics practitioners in Bournemouth and Poole who offer free consultations always.  

Celebrity lip fillers in the news

With barely a week going by without lip augmentation making the press. Kylie Jenner’s lips have taken on their own persona entirely- first, it was has she?, she denied it, admitted it, had them dissolved then had them redone!. Fillers have also arrived on the high street via Superdrug. Even this well know brand has come under scrutiny and criticism from the NHS. This meant they have had to tighten up on their own practices. Including the very important side of any aesthetic treatment – mental health checks.  

We have to keep in mind a few things. Do you really want the best or are you really asking – what’s the cheapest lip filler?. The main problem with this is, cheap never equals excellent. Yes there are some areas of life where we may be able to save a few pounds. But do really want to exercise economy when it comes to someone injecting you face?. No Medical expert would try and get you to have work done, by trying to entice you with discounts and offers. This goes against good medical practice and their code of ethics.

Another important factor is make sure you see the whole face in those before and after photos. The lips should balance the face out and not make you look completely unbalanced, like a walking pair of lips!. So don’t just look at a close up of the lips – ask to see the persons whole face. If the practitioner can’t show you, then you should walk away.

Cheap deal or your wellbeing?

Do you know the other most important reason for using a medical professional for your treatments?. Supposing something did go wrong?. Such as you having a severe allergic reaction which leaves you struggling for breath. Wouldn’t it be much more reassuring that if any such unfortunate issue did arise, you were already in safe hands with a medical professional. Who would have plenty of experience to assist you with the appropriate medical equipment already there?.

Cheap lip fillers near me

It’s easy to lose track of how significant it is to let someone near your face with a needle. Really look at your face. Do you still want to risk someone who doesn’t really know what they’re doing inject you?. Especially when there can be all sorts of complications. We don’t want to put you off or scare you. With the rise of unqualified beauticians, and fake or counterfeit product being bought online .(if you can buy a fake Louis Vuitton online you can certainly buy fake filler too). Everyone need to be aware of what you are actually receiving in return for you hard earned money.

 Your dermal filler should always be bought from a reputable pharmacy. By your medical practitioner and should always be hyaluronic acid.  Lip fillers are a non surgical procedure. Never have permanent filler, because if something goes wrong you’ll need surgery to remove it.  

Although deciding to have lip filler augmentation is a cosmetic procedure. It should always be a very well considered decision and carried out in a sterile clinic after a thorough consultation.

Your face is worth the best

It’s awful to think that there are people out there, with too good to be true prices. That are actually luring people to lose sight of their own wellbeing?. It certainly is not your best interests that they care about, how can it be?. They are deceiving and enticing people to part with their money, only to left unhappy with substandard results. Results at best are unsymmetrical or overfilled lips anyone?. Or possibly there was nothing really injected at all?. Have you ever noticed your lip filler seems to disappear  really quickly?. So you have to keep returning. Which then costs more money over time. Therefore causes more trauma to your lips when they have to be retouched every few months?. Here at Austin Brewer our lip fillers last for 9-12 months, sometimes even longer.

What can go wrong with cheap lip fillers?

A worst case scenarios would be a vascular occlusion . This is one of the more serious complications (this can happen with any facial filler). It usually results in hospital intervention. Providing diagnosis and treatment is sought quickly. The surgeons will be able to save your face before necrosis. Necrosis is when you skin tissue starts to die. If this did happen you would be left with a permanent hole in your face. Unfortunately the sad fact is these are becoming more common. So when some who has little or no medical background is giving you cheap lip filler, you are at risk. People simply have to be made aware of the real risks associated with getting lip filler.  

The future of dermal fillers…

The reports that the government plan to make fillers prescription – only from 2020. (Source Harpers Bazaar 2020), just as Botox is prescription- only already, this at least is a step in right direction. Please don’t be put off having lip fillers, but use caution in your decision of choosing your practitioner. Creating beautiful plump and symmetrical lips are straight forward procedures. That need to be carried out by a medical professional and in the suitable clinical environment.

How to stay safe when getting lip fillers

Please stay safe and make sure you know all the facts about your practitioner, and the product they will be injecting.

The best dermal fillers in Bournemouth & Poole for cheeks & face

Are you looking for the best dermal fillers in Bournemouth & Poole?

Nothing looks so youthful as a face with full, round cheeks. Although many of us may resent ‘baby face’ in our early years, the difference when volume is lost in the face is considerable. Sadly, as we age the face loses its volume. This can result in a hollow, gaunt look.  But luckily you can rejuvenate the shape of your cheeks with the best dermal fillers in Bournemouth & Poole.

How do cheek dermal fillers work?

Cheeks are a central focus to the face. A flattering cheek shape can help improve the jawline or simply plump areas where cheeks have lost volume over time. Dermal fillers help revitalise your appearance by injecting hyaluronic acid to plump out the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body and has amazing moisturising agents to improve the skin tone.

MD codes for cheeks

If your aesthetic practitioner is inexperienced or unknowledgeable, dermal fillers in the cheeks may look unnaturally ‘pillowy’. This is caused by using too much filler in the wrong areas of the face. If you are considering trying dermal fillers for the first time, ask your practitioner for an MD Code dermal filler face lift. MD codes are an innovative system to ensure provide aesthetic practitioner with clear guidelines to achieve beautiful, natural looking results.

What are the best dermal fillers for cheeks?

We use the best dermal fillers in bournemouth & Poole, namely Juvederm.  All the fillers we use in our skin clinic in Bournemouth are 100% hyaluronic acid based and biocompatible.

Why are lip fillers so popular?

Why are lip fillers so popular?, Full, plump lips are a huge trend right now, so it makes sense that lip fillers are in demand! But what else is causing the rise of lip fillers? We look at the many reasons why more and more people are trying lip fillers for the first time!

Change the shape, not just the size

Although there is a common misconception that lip fillers are used to create fake-looking full lips, filler can alter just specific sections of the lips. For example, many opt for fillers to be injected just their top lip or the lip line to alter the shape and create a natural look.  And of course the filler needs to be injected by a qualified professional who has artistic ability.  Lip filler treatments are completely unique to each individual – there is no one size fits all.

Lip fillers for a younger audience

As we get older, our lips tend to lose elasticity and thin out. As with dermal fillers, lip enhancements plump the lips with hyaluronic acid to give an overall youthful look. However, most people interested in lip fillers are in their 20s. More young people are seeking out lip fillers in Bournemouth, including girls in their late teens.

Lip fillers are not permanent

There has been a rise of non-surgical cosmetic solutions in the past few years. The appeal seems to stem from their temporary nature. After watching ‘plastic surgery gone wrong’ programmes, many dislike the idea of permanent plastic surgery. Instead you can try temporary lip fillers and see the results without any long-lasting effects.

Cosmetic treatments are not taboo

Whilst once considered a taboo subject, more people are talking about cosmetic treatments than before. Following the example of Kylie Jenner, young people openly show off their new full lips in selfies on social media.

Lip fillers are an easy procedure

Lip filler injections are a simple, non-surgical treatment. The procedure usually takes less than half an hour and causes only a mild discomfort for most patients. It is a safe, fast and easy solution for those who want fuller lips.

Interested in trying lip fillers in Bournemouth? Contact experienced aesthetic practitioner, Austin Brewer for more information about lip fillers or any of our other cosmetic treatments on  07823 88388 to arrange a free skin consultation.

Austin Brewer on UK Talk Radio: Lip Fillers

Recently, facial aesthetic practitioner Austin Brewer appeared on UK Talk Radio.  Discussing the treatment of lip fillers and some of the worries clients initially have after the procedure.

With many celebrities often choosing lip fillers as a way of enhancing appearance, this treatment has become common amongst the general public.

What are lip fillers?

 The lip fillers Austin Brewer uses are hyaluronic, acid-based fillers. The fillers are injected into the lips in order to add volume or correct certain areas of your lips you may want to treat.

Why is it people sometimes get an unnatural image when using lip fillers?

 With many lip fillers being similar in their potential to enhance appearance, it’s more dependant on the skill of the practitioner as to whether good or bad results are achieved. Austin Brewer says “its up to the artistic side of your facial practitioner. If they’re not that artistic, you’re not going to get an artistic job”.

Would you take other facial features into account when giving someone lip enhancements?

We definitely look at the whole face to see what style would fit most seamlessly with the other features. For example, if we are doing one of our cosmetic treatments on someone who has really strong eyes, we want to compliment these and, as Austin Brewer states, “not overshadow them with a ridiculously-sized pair of lips”.

Do people often come to you wanting these big lips that they’ve seen?

What often happens is that people become fixated on one part of their body they are not happy with. Here we often need to tell people to slow down, take a step back and focus on the entire face and not just one part of it. Using lip fillers is a great way to improve the entire facial appearance so that “everything fits into this nice equilateral triangle”.

What is the process when someone comes to you wanting lip fillers?

We have a free skin consultation with all treatments. Here people usually come in with photos of how they want to look. However, every lip filler treatment we do is bespoke to the client as everyone wants slightly different results. After the process, there is swelling over the following week. It’s here we need to reassure people that their lips will reduce in size.

Do the lip fillers need topping up?

Yes, every 6 months a top up is required as slowly the body does try to break down the filler.

We hope you enjoyed Austin Brewer on Uk Talk Radio – stay tuned until next time…

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

Botox In Dorset

How long do lip fillers last?

Many people visit the Austin Brewer Clinic for lip fillers in Bournemouth and ask how long fillers last?.  Lip fillers are like any non-invasive cosmetic surgery; and lip and aesthetic treatment results and longevity varies.   The effective period differs from person to person.

The treatment…

Once the injections are complete, you will see the effects of your treatment immediately. You may notice some mild and temporary swelling but this minor side effect will normally disappear within approximately 24 hours.

After the swelling has gone down, your dermal fillers should last between six and eighteen months. The time that dermal fillers are effective are dependent on the individual and also on the volume and areas being treated. Dermal fillers can be injected into all areas of the face, neckline, neck and hands.

At Austin Brewer we use hyaluronic acid in our lip fillers, which is considered a better, safer and longer-lasting alternative to collagen and fat injections. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for skin elasticity and tone. As we age hyaluronic acid levels decrease contributing to the effect of fine lines and wrinkles.

Another great thing about lip fillers is that they don’t need any maintenance. There is no need to use any cosmetics to increase the length, potency or effect, they will always remain looking perfect until your body naturally begins to break them down.

Austin Brewer is the leading facial aesthetics practitioner in Bournemouth, Dorset.   He has extensive experience in the field of non-invasive cosmetics.  As a registered nurse with the NMC and the only cosmetics practitioner registered with the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service.  You can be assured that you are in safe hands when you choose Austin.

Everything You Need to Know About Lip Fillers

lip fillers Bournemouth Poole austin brewerThere’s no denying that lip fillers are one of the most sought after beauty treatments of the moment. We’re all the same in that we want the most for our money and we want it now. This is where lip fillers truly deliver, as the results are noticeable almost immediately, and they can last between 6 and 18 months. Austin Brewer specialises in lip fillers in Bournemouth, and is happy to answer any questions you may have. Book a free consultation to find out more.

Technological advancements

At the beginning of the century, it was fairly common for people to turn to collagen or silicone lip fillers in order to achieve a fuller look, but we’re pleased to say that things have moved on since then. Today, we use Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – a natural substance which is already present in the skin.

The levels of HA in our skin decreases with age, but that doesn’t stop it working wonders for fuller lips. So how does the magic work? HA is renowned for its ability to retain moisture, in fact, it can hold up to a thousand times its original weight. It slowly absorbs into the skin, leaving a plumper look which emphasises the natural shape of your lips.

What you need to know

You’ll be happy to learn that the effects of lip fillers are almost instant, but now you’re probably asking if you’ll need to get the icepacks out. At Austin Brewer, we minimise the pain by using an ultra-thin needle and injecting small amounts of HA at a time, although you may notice slight stinging initially.

The after-effects of lip fillers vary depending on the amount of HA injected, however there is no reason why you can’t carry on with your day once you leave the clinic. The treatment has been designed to cause minimal bruising, and any swelling tends to disappear within 24 hours.

Everyone has different tastes when it comes to beauty and aesthetics, which is why, at Austin Brewer, you have complete control over the look you want to create. The procedure will be personalised to suit you, and we can adjust the amount of HA injected according to the level of volume you wish to achieve.

Why use Austin Brewer?

We have over 16years’ experience in non-invasive cosmetics and are proud members of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses. Austin has helped boost the confidence of dozens of women across the area by accentuating their natural beauty in one simple step.

If you’re not completely satisfied with the way your lips are looking, why not book a consultation at Austin Brewer? You’ve got nothing to lose. Lip fillers are simple procedures with guaranteed results and no maintenance required.

Do Lip Fillers Hurt?

Do lip fillers hurt? Lip Filler BournemouthAt the Austin Brewer Facial Aesthetics Clinic we get many clients interested in lip and dermal fillers.

So do lip fillers hurt?

Please bear in mind that when the hyaluronic acid fillers are injected into the area, there may be a slight throbbing or a stinging sensation.   However this discomfort normally fades a short while after.  We provide an excellent numbing cream and the filler itself also has a numbing agent.

As with any injection, the area around your lips will encounter some temporary but mild swelling.  But please do not  worry – this minor side effect normally disappears within 24 / 48 hours.  So by the next day you will see the results of your lip filler.  For some it can take a while longer for everything to settle, so if you are considering treatment for a special occasion, please ensure you leave enough time.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip Fillers SouthamptonLip fillers (also known as dermal fillers, lip enhancements or lip plumping) are a cosmetic treatment which gives fuller, plumper lips.  Filler treatments can also correct and fix lip asymmetry and a gummy smile.

Originally, dermal fillers were made of collagen. Patients needed an allergy test to determine whether they were allergic to the collagen before every procedure. Advancements in technology discovered more biocompatible substances that don’t require prior testing, such as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in high concentrations in the body and the obvious choice for Austin Brewer’s lip fillers in Bournemouth.

 What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid might be a bit of a mouthful to pronounce, but it naturally occurs in the body and is present in the skin. It preserves moisture levels, boosts skin tone and provides shape, structure and volume to otherwise lacking lips. As we age, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases.  When this substance reduces, the skin dries out and wrinkles start to appear.

We use hyaluronic acid fillers for these range of benefits:

·         Control over lip volume – As hyaluronic acid is injected the degree of lip volume created can be controlled

·         Less bruising – compared to other dermal fillers, bruises and swelling from hyaluronic acid injection is visibly less

·         Long lasting results – while not permanent, hyaluronic acid lip fillers last a long time

·         Relatively allergy free – because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body it is highly unlikely that you would be affected by a reaction.

·         Naturally hydrates skin – as hyaluronic acid is an intense moisturising agent; you’re effectively turning back time!

·         Almost instant results – unlike Botox®, you start to see the results of your dermal filler almost immediately.

·         Versatility – these lip fillers can be used for other areas of the face, including neckline, neck and hands

Austin Brewer is a facial aesthetic practitioner who has provided cosmetic treatments since 2004.

Our lip fillers in Bournemouth can leave the lips looking plumper from 6 to 9 months.  So the time you’d usually spend on your lip liner, you can spend catching up on your beauty sleep instead.

Most asked questions before injectable treatments

We have a lot of clients who come in to the clinic that are new to the cosmetic treatments we offer here.  And the one thing that everyone has lots to ask are the questions before injectable treatments.  We understand, which is why we have always offered free consultations.  Like anything new it can be a bit daunting, but we ensure we explain everything in great detail so that they are totally in-the-know and at ease with how we operate at Austin Brewer. Most of all we make sure we manage our client’s expectations so they get exactly the result they are after!

You may have seen my recent blog about the Cosmetic Cowboys, and raising awareness of people like this is something we are passionate about. As the only skin clinic in Bournemouth on the Treatments You Can Trust Register you know you are in safe hands here!

So, I thought it would be useful for some our readers – and particularly our new clients, for me to answer the most asked questions before injectable treatments that often come our way.

How much does my skin consultation cost?

Your first skin consultation is free of charge. This is because we like to asses our clients case by case to discuss exactly what cosmetic treatment is right for you. We won’t offer a treatment to a potential client if we feel it is not suitable.

Do I need a skin consultation before going ahead with my treatment?

Understandably we require a face to face skin consultation before treatment to assess the right approach for you. Anything that involves your face is a big decision and not something we take lightly, so having a thorough consultation to discuss every aspect of the treatment is a given at our clinic. As the only TYCT registered skin clinic in Bournemouth, getting a professional experience is closer to home than you may think.

Am I having ‘surgery’?

All of our procedures are non-surgical. This means they are not classed as surgery, and more often than not you can get on with your day straight after your cosmetic treatment. Unlike an operation you don’t need weeks to recover which is a bonus!

What are the laws on non surgical treatments?

You can read more about the guidelines on the NHS website here.

How do I know you are qualified?

Austin Brewer is a registered nurse with the NMC, the only aesthetic practitioner in Dorset registered with the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service and is fully insured with Medical providers Hamilton Fraser.
