In 2016 Australians’ annual spending on non-invasive procedures (such as cosmetic injections and dermal fillers) was over $1 billion for the first time, reflecting the growing popularity of non-surgical procedures in Australia.
As the number of Australians receiving these treatments increases, the issue of safety becomes even more important. It is essential that the procedures are performed by qualified professionals in a safe and clinical environment to eliminate the possibility of something going wrong.
At Eastern Skin Therapy, the safety of our clients is our top priority. From our most basic facial treatments to more advanced non-surgical procedures, our clients can be reassured that they are in safe hands.
Read on for what to look out for when identifying the safety level of your skin clinic.
The team at Eastern Skin Therapy is committed to prioritising our patients’ safety and comfort through every step of their treatment journey. Our clinic’s affiliation with Eastern Plastic Surgery ensures that all of our services are performed from a medical perspective. Our skin therapists, dermal clinicians and cosmetic nurses are experienced and qualified professionals.
As a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, head surgeon Mr Frank Lin’s expertise informs Eastern Skin Therapy’s level of safety and medical-grade care.
Eastern Skin Therapy’s advanced medical devices are authentic and TGA-approved, features that must be considered in an industry where counterfeit aesthetic devices and machines have become a serious problem. Our team has undergone extensive training with all medical equipment, as well as with trainers from companies such as Allergan, Merz and more.
All Eastern Skin Therapy treatments are performed in private rooms with genuine medical-grade equipment and safety standards. Our clinic is also fully equipped with an emergency kit.
Our clinic has a number of strict systems and measures in place should any difficulties be encountered. Protocol has been established in the case of adverse reactions to skin procedures, and a chain of command has been developed with Mr Lin as the main point of contact.
