✖️THE AGING FACE✖️ . The aging face goes through so many changes. Often, we will see some part of the face that starts to bother us. This is when a patient might present to the clinic only wanting that one line they see treated. Sometimes, that can definitely be done. However, we are losing bone, fat pad and muscle, as well as the skin losing collagen and elastin as we age. These things can be contributing to that one line, and treating the line itself may not always give optimal desired outcomes for the patient. . Sometimes, all of the areas on the right picture I highlighted need to be treated (as well as the skin) just from the one area of concern on the left. Sometimes, this is why some patients are unhappy with the outcome from treating the line itself. . Injectables are definitely not a “one stop shop” and the face needs to be considered as a whole, not isolating one particular area. .

When my patient’s come back after 2 weeks and say they can’t see a difference... 🤨😶😂 . This is why a “before” photo is always taken and is compared to when you ‘think’ the filler has “all worn off” ☺️. We quickly adapt to what we see in the mirror everyday, so it is up to the injector to say “no more”. .

Not today, Susan. Not today. . On a serious note... I don’t normally get these comments on my page because I only like to give natural-looking results, but other trolling comments get made about people’s decisions to have treatment. It is not up to anyone, except ourselves, to decide what we want to do. If people want to have injectables, that’s fine. If they don’t, that’s fine too. Just keep nasty comments to yourself please 🤚🏼. . . . #susan #troll #betterbefore #haters #rude

✖️LIPS✖️ . Creating soft, curved lips without the dreaded “duck lip” requires perfect product placement. The most important view to assess the “duck lip” is from a side profile. I look from all angles, sides, sit you up, and lay you back to make sure your filler is exactly where it needs to be. .

✖️FILLERS AND SICKNESS✖️ . It’s Winter and the flu season is in. As much as I love to see my patients, please do not come to your appointment if you are sick. . Firstly, we try and minimise the spread of infection to the public. If you are that sick you couldn’t go to work, please do not come to your appointment. I also need to work and would not like to catch your virus please 🙂. . Secondly, the main point of this post, if you are sick - ear, nose, and throat infections, sinusitis, dental infections, systemic infections, P.ances, et c., you will not be treated until you are completely well. Why? Emerging clinical evidence is evolving that these infections can invade filler, producing biofilm infection reactions. Also, transition from infection to hypersensitivity may occur. . We have to do no harm in medicine and I will politely refuse your treatment until you’re better. The risk of infection does not outweigh the benefit of your elective medical treatment of new lips for the weekend 😉💋. . Reference: De Boulle, K., Heydenrych, I. (2015).

✖️PROFILE BALANCING✖️ . Sometimes, the smallest changes can make the biggest differences, especially from a side profile view. . Have a look how the line is more vertical in the “after” photo. The “before” photo shows what we call a “regressed”, or “weak chin”. Not all, but this typically presents in my Asian background beauties, and of course, other cultures. Our bone structure also starts to change on this area when we age, so a little chin filler can help mimic bone structure. . The before photo was 10 months after her first chin filler treatment and the after was immediately after her second chin filler treatment with me @cityskin_clinic Sydney 💗. We have treated other areas and more treatment is to be added over time for this beauty. . . . #chinfiller #profile #profilepicture #balance #chin .

✖️ICE DURING INJECTABLES✖️ . I never use ice before, or during your injections. Some people come from other clinics where they have, but I personally do not use it. I have just cleansed the skin with alcohol and Chlorhexidine, creating a sterile field, then an unsterile ice cube/ block/ glove is being wiped all over the area without cleansing it down again? 🤨. Most of my patients think I’m being “mean” by not icing, but it is purely for infection control. . This was a very interesting study! There was 2 confirmed, and a presumptive case of 1 patient who tested positive to Mycobacterium chelonae after dermal filler injection at the one clinic. One patient was injected with an opened filler syringe that had been split, and the other was injected with an unopened filler syringe. Both fillers had different lot numbers. 24 hours 18 days later, both patients presented with infections that were treated with antibiotics. Both made complete recovery. . The authors contacted numerous people, including the pharmaceutical company, to see if the clusters were noted nationally and questioned if other patients had symptoms of infection who were also injected at the same clinic. No other reports were found. . Environmental specimens were taken from the clinic, and all samples came back negative. The procedure was described by their injector and it was recorded for analysis. It was identified that the injector used frozen gloves, or Ziplock-type bags filled with water from the tap during the filler injection. Funny enough, they tested the water where the ice was sourced and it tested positive Mycobacterium species. It is presumed that leakage occurred during the procedure, contaminating the skin and allowing for intradermal inoculation during the procedure. The authors said the pharmaceutical company of the filler used guideline is that application of ice is suggested for after, not prior, to filler injection. . Reference: Rodriguez, J. M, Xie, Y. L., Winthrop, K. L., Schafer, S., Sehdev, P., Solomon, J., ...Lewis, P. F. (2013). Mycobacterium chelonae facial infections following injection of dermal filler.

Out of hours of shooting and 1,000’s of photos, I only liked one... kind of... haha! . We all judge ourselves worse than anyone else would and I say this to my patient’s. It’s quite funny how some patients come in concerned about the tiniest line you nearly need a magnifying glass to see it, whereas I would have immediately picked another “obvious” area to treat. . Sometimes, we find flaws that no one else would see, so it’s important to listen to your injector. If I tell you “it’s not too bad”, then it’s the truth. It can become a slippery slope when analysing every single line on our face and try to eliminate everything. Sometimes, it’s the little “imperfections” that give us character. 💗 . . . #nurse #photoshoot #cosmeticnurse #registerednurse #photoshooting
✖️LIP FILLER✖️ . Tag a friend who needs to see this! . I still get a very large proportion of patients who do not want to have filler, especially lip filler, because of the “overfilled” look that they see in everyday lives and social media. . I can say that I completely understand! I see SO many overfilled lips and faces, it’s almost an epidemic. If people want that look then that is fine. No one sees “beauty” the same way. However, if you’re on my page, I’m assuming you prefer a natural-looking enhancement. It is a HUGE misconception that you will look “fake” and “overdone” with a small amount of filler, IF the filler is placed correctly, the right type of filler is used for the area and not too much of it. . It all comes down to the injector. Why? It is up to the injector what type of filler they use, what technique, where they place it, how much is used, and most importantly, how to say “no”. . So many people say they don’t know how to find an injector. The vast majority of injectors are now on social media. Go to their page and have a look at the result they give. Another indication is to look at the injector themselves. The injector is most likely going to look like the type of result they prefer. I’m not saying everyone looks how they inject, but the vast majority do from what I’ve personally seen. . . . #lipfiller #lips #ducklips #overfilled #lipenhancement .

✖️MICRONEEDLING✖️ . I hear so many patients tell me they “had one treatment” and didn’t see a difference. It’s important to understand that you can’t always achieve results after one treatment. Everyone wants a “quick fix” these days and do not have the patience to undertake multiple treatments over a period of time to see long-term results. Like the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day 😉. . Study: Participants had 6 microneedling sessions performed every 2 weeks to evaluate the effect it had on aging skin. Biopsy specimens were taken at baseline, at one month then at 3 months to evaluate collagen types I, III, and VII, newly synthesised collagen, total elastin and tropoelastin. . Results: The tissue biopsy was stained with picrosirius red and viewed under red polarized light. At one month, there was only a slight, statistically non-significant (P=0.165) increase in newly synthesised collagen. However, after 3 months, there was a statistically significant (P=0.01) increase in collagen compared to baseline. The results from this study recommended that multiple, continued treatment is required to maintain clinical improvement. .

✖️CHIN FILLER✖️ . This beauty wanted to create a little more of a heart shaped face, so we treated the masseters with anti-wrinkle injections (she has previously had this done), and subtly placed filler into the chin.

These photos were from before and just 4 weeks after anti-wrinkle injections to the masseter muscle for jawline slimming. . Before my inbox gets flooded again, this is not fat dissolving injections. This result was achieved from anti-wrinkle injections causing the masseter muscle to atrophy. This patient had very strong masseter muscle contraction, which is why it has drastically slimmed the face, creating a more contoured jawline. .

✖️LIPS✖️ . Some lips are challenging. Some are quite asymmetrical, some have little pockets and some are very thin (this means you have a higher risk of seeing the filler).

✖️SUNSCREEN IN MAKEUP✖️ . Part of my standard questioning during a complete skin exam for skin cancer is about daily sunscreen use. . Makeup does not provide enough coverage. You need seven times the normal amount of foundation and 14 times the normal amount of powder to get the sun protection factor on the label. No one does this. . Makeup and powder SPF are great adjuncts to a moisturizer with sunscreen and a wonderful way to enhance coverage throughout the day, but they are not sufficient alone. . Invest in a great all in one moisturizer/sunscreen/tint that provides a base of protection and then touch it up throughout the day to ensure that you are keeping the skin cancers and wrinkles away. .

✖️FACIAL SLIMMING✖️ . I love how @bethennyfrankel shared that she suffered with bruxism (teeth grinding) for many years. She said her dentists picked this up when she was younger, but didn’t get a plate. Years later, she then got the plate and then said her dermatologist suggested anti-wrinkle injections into the masseter muscle because it was so tight. . Constant use of the masseter muscle can cause the muscles to hypertrophy. Anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscle and prevent it from contracting. Therefore the muscle atrophies and creates a facial slimming effect. . Photo credit @bethennyfrankel And @ghettyigimages . #facialslimming #bethennyfrankel #housewives . . . . .

✖️VASCULAR OCCLUSIONS✖️ . A big thank you to @juvederm.julie and @injectionexpert for allowing me to share this image of a vascular occlusion for education. . This is an occlusion actually on @juvederm.julie herself - an injecting trainer for one of the pharmaceutical companies. She said the occlusion occurred from an anteriomedial cheek region injection from a permanent type of filler. Due to regulation in Australia, I cannot name brands, so please don’t ask me what it was. Unfortunately, permanent fillers cannot be dissolved in the case of a vascular occlusion. This is why I do not inject anything that is permanent. It is just not worth the risk, if something like this were to happen, in my opinion. . This also goes to show, as per my previous post, that occlusions can happen to anyone at anytime, even the trainers themselves. Thank gosh, Julie is now on the mend 🙏🏼. She said she has had several treatments to help repair her skin over a long period of time. . . . #vascularocclusion #dermalfillers #cheekfillers #filler #fillers .

✖️OVERFILLED CHEEKS✖️ . We have all seen some people walking around who look like this 🙈. A good injector will always tell you “no more”, unless you want that look 😕. . There is only so much filler that you can put in the cheeks to replace lost volume, which aids in supporting the skin. Note that it doesn’t give you a facelift, especially with just a couple of mls. . If your injector keeps telling you to fill the cheeks and do not inject the nasolabial fold, the preauricular, the jawline, the marionette area, suggest skin treatments, or potential surgery, then be warned, you will probably end up looking like this. . . . . . . #janetjackson #cheeks #cheekfillers #cheekfiller #filler #fillers #dermalfiller #dermalfillers #contour #skin #skincare #laser #glowup #beauty #beautyblog #cosmetic #injectables #aesthetic #cosmeticnurse #surgery #facelift #krisjenner #botched #naturalbeauty #freshnotfake #sydney #plasticsurgery #beautyguru #cosmeticinjections #cosmeticinjector

✖️LIP FILLER✖️ . This was this patient’s first time for lip filler. She already had an amazing bottom lip, but the top lip was significantly smaller. More volume needed to be added to the top lip, in order to create more of a phi ratio (1:1.618), which is the ratio that is considered to be the most aesthetically pleasing for lips 💗. . Before you ask, yes, all of your make-up comes off when having dermal filler 😉. I also massage the lips after, which is why you normally always see the ‘after’ photo having red lips 👄. . 1ml of lip filler was used.
