A world of treatment options
Human skin is a truly wondrous thing. It protects us from threats, helps us to maintain a constant internal environment and plays a major role in our appearance. Young skin has a fresh, healthy appearance. But age, harsh environments and genetics can change the appearance of the skin and the face. Individuals may feel their faces no longer match the way they feel.
In the face of such challenges, it helps to have options. Medical science today delivers a wide range of potential aesthetic treatments for addressing the effects of facial ageing, such as wrinkles, fine lines and sun damage. Some individuals may also wish to enhance their appearance to achieve their own, unique aesthetic goals. Options include, but are not limited to, anti-wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers, skin hydration boosters and collagen stimulators.
If you are considering an aesthetic procedure, remember that many treatments are prescription-only medications that may only be administered by a registered healthcare practitioner. The decision to undertake an aesthetic treatment should always be made in cooperation with a healthcare practitioner.
Always consult a registered professional
Many aesthetic treatments involving injections are prescription-only medications. Only a registered healthcare practitioner is permitted to deliver such treatments. You can check that the practitioner you are considering consulting is registered by visiting the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency website.
