Skin Check and Treatment FAQ

Do I need referral for skin check?

There is no need for referral.

Is there any out of pocket charge for procedure?

Yes. Depending on the complexity of the procedure you need to pay a small gap which is payable after the result becomes available. You will be offered other options, including referral to public system which there is gap-free.

How should I book for a procedure?

Your doctor will hand you a referral note to get to the reception, written the exact amount of gap, and the needed time, then you can choose any available time which suits you. You will be booked with a nurse for the wound review and dressing change, usually 2 days after the procedure.

The 3rd appointment, again with a nurse, would be appointed on the procedure day for suture removal which depends on location of the lesion and procedure.

Anti Wrinkle

What wrinkles can I treat with Xeomin®,Botox® and Dysport®?

While some patients think all wrinkles can be treated with Xeomin®, Botox®, or Dysport®, this isn’t accurate. Because they work by relaxing (and therefore smoothing) facial muscles, these injections are most effective for wrinkles that are caused by tensed muscles due to repeated facial expressions. These include crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, and forehead creases.

How long will myXeomin®/ Botox®/Dysport® treatment take and how much recovery time will I need?

One of my patients’ favorite aspects of Xeomin®, Botox® and Dysport® injections is how convenient they are for facial rejuvenation. The treatment only takes about 5 minutes to perform, and it doesn’t require any downtime. Many patients find it easy to have their procedure during one of their lunch breaks.

When and for how long will I see my Xeomin®, Botox® or Dysport® results?

Because the injections are working with your body’s natural processes, it takes about 24-48hrs ( for Dysport ), and 3-4 days ( for Xeomin and Botox ) for the results to begin appearing, and they should reach their full effect within a week of your treatment. The results will generally last 3-4 months, though this will vary from patient to patient.

What’s the difference between Xeomin®, Botox® and Dysport®?

Xeomin®, Botox® and Dysport® are 3 companies’ versions of the same product.They all contain the same active ingredient (botulinum neurotoxin) however they are produced in different ways which influences the purity of the product. Some products contain unnecessary proteins, which do not help the active ingredient work in the body. Xeomin®, is a purified one which helps to not to develop resistance.

Are Xeomin®,Botox® and Dysport® injections safe?

While there is a risk of potential side effects like temporary muscle weakness, bruising, or a headache from Xeomin®, Botox® and Dysport®, the risk is very low. It’s important to note, though, that this risk increases dramatically when your injections are performed by someone who is less experienced and poorly trained. To ensure that your injections are as safe as possible, only get your treatment from a licensed with extensive experience.

How should I book for the treatment?

You need an initial free consultation, in which the doctor goes through all of details with you. You will be given time to ask any question. The detailed quote would be provided for different part of face. For the subsequent injections, you do not need to come in, just give us a call to put you on the list for the following clinic. On the time of booking you need to pay half of the given quote, and the rest on the day.

Are there any side effects or associated risks?

During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Your Doctor will provide you with the detailed Informed Consent Form when he books you.

Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?

There is little or no sensation during treatment, even for surgical dermatological procedures. In some procedures, a local anaesthetic can be injected prior to Blue Laser to prevent any discomfort. For Dermatological Therapy one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. After treatment, you will feel almost no discomfort.

What are the precautions?

Like any other procedures with Laser, your skin needs to be clean from any makeup or tanning products.

You need to wear protective goggles, and of course anyone else present needs one ( everyone will be provided ). Young children who cannot keep their goggles on, should not enter the room.

any shiny objects near the proposed area, like a necklace, needs to be removed.

Is Laser treatment very expensive?

Considering the efficiency of Laser, and the amount of time is needed with less after care, it is sometimes less expensive than procedure. The price for a simple lesion starts from $100 to few hundreds maximum.

What are the benfits of Laser treatment?

Cosmetically, it's very acceptable. No cutting, nor stitching is needed. As its very focused, collateral damage to the surrounding tissues are minimal. The procedure is very quick, the recovery is very fast and usually, no post-op care needed.
