  • Why cosmetic injections are called ‘anti-wrinkle’ injections

Most cosmetic injections in Australia come under TGA guidelines that state any product containing prescription-only substances cannot be advertised to consumers by brand name, abbreviations, nicknames, or ingredients.

This means searching for providers of your favourite or preferred cosmetic injectables can be difficult, so you need to know the code-language that providers are allowed to use instead.

Code language – the acceptable terms

Why can’t I search for products or ingredients by name?
These restrictions are in place to protect you and your relationship with your cosmetic doctor. Prescription medicines are classified as possibly risky if misused (Schedule 4), and a consultation is required before an individual can be deemed suitable for their use. The TGA states that any advertising that encourages consumers to seek out specific products disrupts the doctor-patient relationship and can be dangerous.

Getting what you want from your provider
If you want to improve the appearance of your face or skin, cosmetic injections can be a really great option, but they are not the only option. Your cosmetic doctor has been looking at faces with beautiful contours in mind his or her whole professional life, so he or she can quickly see where your contours might be improved. A combination of options might suit your face best.

The TGA has its guidelines on cosmetic injections with good reason, and we adhere to this strictly – not every product is right for every person, and each face has unique characteristics that must be honoured with individualised treatments.

If you want a treatment completely tailored to your needs, contact us for a personal consultation.
