Concerned about bruising and downtime?  Not to worry.  Dr Louisa specialises with the use of cannula techinque.  This allows minimal down time and less bruising and is highly recommended.

FAQ:

1. Can I get injections if I am pregnant?  What if I am currently breastfeeding?

Cosmetic injections are safe.  However, no studies have been done on pregnant women or breastfeeding women, therefore, it is not recommended to have treatments if you know you are pregnant or currently breastfeeding.  We do not have safety data and are unclear if any products crosses through the bloodstream to the unborn or newborn.  Better safe than sorry.

2. If I have cosmetic injections, when can I have advanced facial treatments?

The general consensus is to wait for two weeks.  This is only a guide and depends on case by case basis.  

3. Can I wear makeup afterwards?

Yes, mineral makeup is fine as it is inert but please ensure the makeup brushes are clean.  Dr Louisa will generally apply liquid bandaid (e.g. Strataderm) or soothing cream after injections to reduce the risk to infection.

4. How long do the injections last for?

Wrinkle relaxants lasts up to 4 months but depending on the amount used (natural look vs glamour) and location of the treatment area.  If you have never had injections before and this is your first time, it may last just under 3 months.  Dr Louisa usually chooses an intermediate dosage first.  Soft tissue fillers, depending on the amount used and treatment areas, some lasts up to six to nine months.

Her motto is, you can always add more next time, but too much at first, you may end up looking too surprised and over paying each time.

Cosmetic Skin Care for Clients undergoing Fertility Treatments

According to the most recent data from The Fertility Society of Australia 2013, infertility affects one in six couples in Australia and New Zealand. This means that most of us will come across people who are undergoing fertility treatments.

There is still a lot of stigma in the society, partly due to the lack of awareness and understanding of the processes involved. Unless you have traveled along the same path, often, it is very hard to comprehend how to comfort or console those on this challenging journey. It is a journey that will test the faith of a couple. There will be many hopefuls and many sorrows. Unfortunately, not every opportunity is a success with a joyful ending. Despite this, many of us will continue cycle after cycle in the hope of winning that bundle of joy.
