Choosing the right cosmetic treatment and doctors can be challenging. We’re faced with a vast array of treatments, renowned practitioners and clinics, but the white noise of marketing hype can be confusing.
If you’re new to cosmetic treatments, accurately comparing products, services and figuring out how to choose a cosmetic surgeon can be challenging to do well. We understand that there’s a lot to consider, so we’ve taken some time to help you choose the right cosmetic treatments, practitioners and clinic.
Think practitioner, not products
Dermal filler injections at a cosmetic clinic like ENRICH Clinic are products approved for use in Australia. These products are standardised, safe and effective, allowing you to turn your attention to your practitioner and the application of the treatment, rather than the treatment itself.
Cosmetic treatments are a mixture of art and science – the right tools in experienced hands get beautiful results. The right tools in the wrong hands can mean at best a mediocre job, at worst, a short or long-term disaster for your skin.
Every doctor at ENRICH is a qualified, experienced cosmetic doctor, and you can always expect excellent results.
Choosing a cosmetic surgeon
Selecting a cosmetic surgeon can be rather a big undertaking. Often we want a cosmetic surgeon based solely on personal referrals: if someone we know had a great experience and got the results they were after with a particular surgeon, we are likely to choose that plastic surgeon.
If you don’t have any first-hand recommendations, the first step in choosing a cosmetic surgeon is to find a list of surgeons who specialise in the procedure you want performed.
Examining a cosmetic surgeon’s reputation and surgical preferences is next. You want to choose a cosmetic surgeon that has an excellent reputation, but that also seems to suit your style. Each cosmetic surgeon has their preferences in terms of the tools and techniques they use.
While you won’t be entirely across what tools or techniques each surgeon uses (but you can ask), the outcomes seen in a cosmetic surgeon’s patients may tell the story. For example, a liposuction doctor who uses the gold standard tumescent technique that Dr Michael Rich at ENRICH uses may have consistently smoother results than a plastic surgeon who uses newer, and in our opinion often riskier, laser-enhanced liposuction.
It may seem an added expense, but personal consultations with potential plastic or cosmetic surgeons is essential. Trusting the person and the process tends to result in you feeling happier with the results, and that’s the ultimate goal of all of this.
Choosing the best practitioner for the job
At ENRICH, we have a range of talented, skilled doctors, cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists, each with a specific area of interest. For example, we have allergy, skin cancer, and cosmetic experts, with all of our practitioners at the top of their field.
Not only are our practitioners the best in their chosen speciality, but they love what they do. Our doctors are passionate, dedicated professionals who want nothing more than for you to have beautiful, healthy skin that you love and makes you feel good.
Only ENRICH doctors do injections
We have some of the best cosmetic doctors in Australia on our team, and they are expert injectors. Dermal filler or anti-wrinkle injections are a true art form, and we only trust our highly-trained doctors with this specific, intricate task. Many clinics have trainees, beauticians or nurses doing injections, sometimes with just a one or two day course behind them.
At ENRICH, you’ll always meet the doctors or cosmetic surgeon who will be performing your injectable treatments; our nurses don’t inject.
Think past your cosmetic treatments to exceptional care
Having a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon or cosmetic doctor at a quality clinic like ENRICH is essential not just for great aesthetic results, but for the relationships you build. People tend to prefer to use a clinic or practitioner that they trust, and that takes time to develop. We aim for great relationships with our clients straight off the bat.
This relationship is like any: you get more comfortable with your practitioners, can ask better questions, and trust in the advice you are given. These elements result in excellent treatment outcomes.
Knowing that your clinic has the highest standards is reassuring, especially when you are putting your body and face in the hands of strangers.
Choosing the right cosmetic treatment
There is no doubt: cosmetic treatments cost a lot, especially when you’re in the clinic every few months getting top-ups and repeat treatments, or saving up for a significant procedure like liposuction.
Finding a price for your cosmetic treatment that suits your budget is, therefore, a canny financial move. Well, maybe not. While this might be true of many other industries, there is no such thing in cosmetic treatments as an ‘amazing deal’.
The products, equipment and people required to provide you with quality cosmetic treatments all cost money, so any clinic promising you cheap cosmetic procedures is skimping somewhere along the line, but where?
This doesn’t mean good deals can’t be found in cosmetic medicine – they can. You can get bundled treatments, treatment packages, and bulk buys in advance for discounts on the usual retail price. A clinic like ENRICH may be offering special prices on the right cosmetic treatment as a promotion for a limited time, for example, a summer starter package or a winter rejuvenation program. We also encourage our patients to work with a treatment plan so we can tailor the patient’s needs, work through the timing of a plan’s journey and of course offer a discount or package for the multiple treatments purchased. Take full advantage!
Saving money is a beautiful thing, but so is trusting in the people who will be doing cosmetic treatments on your face and body. Be cautious and do your homework when choosing the right cosmetic treatment for your body and budget. If you shop at Kmart, you do get to have it now, but you know it’ll break sooner or later. Invest in quality treatment from a quality clinic.
Knowing what to expect from your cosmetic treatments
Cosmetic treatments can be scary if you’re new to them. Will it hurt? Will you be able to go out in public? How much does it cost? There are lots of questions. We make sure you are prepared for each treatment, so there are no surprises.
Managing your expectations is vital to us. Cosmetic treatments are not magic (although sometimes the results can seem like it!). Cosmetic treatments all have areas in which they excel, but also certain limitations. Understanding where the edges lie means you have realistic expectations going in.
You’ll be provided with plenty of information on what to expect and how to care for yourself at home after a procedure. You can also call our nurse anytime if required.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible, knowing you are in capable hands.
