Professional, personalised cosmetic injectables and skin care

ABOUT EMBRACE AESTHETICS

I truly believe everyone has their own individual beauty. In a world that is harsh and creating at times impossible and particular standards on how women should look, it is at times difficult for us to feel beautiful and hold ourselves with confidence. Embrace Aesthetics aims to make you feel and be your best, not just look your best.

My current services are cosmetic anti-wrinkle injectables and dermal fillers. My aim is to enhance your natural beauty and provide you with personalised, friendly, safe and honest service. I provide complimentary consultations to discuss your wants, needs and goals, a consultation with my prescribing doctor, Dr Andrew Haig, to provide you with a prescription for the injectables you are wanting and complimentary follow up appointments to keep track of your progress.

ABOUT FREYA

My name is Freya and I am the owner of Embrace Aesthetics. I am a division one registered nurse and completed my Bachelor of Nursing at Deakin University. I have had a wide range of experience throughout my nursing career and have worked throughout various hospitals and departments. I have worked extensively in many emergency departments, spent time on various wards as well as working in anaesthetic nursing for a short period of time too. 

Whilst nursing I developed an interest in cosmetics as I was passionate about beauty and skin care, and it was an area that I hadn’t yet experienced. I decided to undertake a Cosmetic Nursing Diploma with the Australian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Sciences and successfully completed this degree which sparked my passion! I worked in a franchised clinic for some time where I performed laser hair removal, various skin therapies, as well as injectables. My love for skin care and injectables became clear and drove me to create something of my own.

SKIN TREATMENTS

DELUXE MICRODERMABRASION AND SONOPHORESIS TREATMENT

This is a diamond tip microdermabrasion machine that gently exfoliates a fine layer of dead skin cells off the surface of your skin, whilst producing a light vacuum over the skin to unclog pores, rid blackheads and increase blood flow to the surface of skin. The Sonophorosesis part of the treatment uses sound wave technology to increase product absorption

This treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles, increases cellular renewal, encourages collagen production, removes dry skin, helps to heal and remove breakouts and increases brightness and youthful looking skin! This skin treatment is great for any skin type, involves no down time and produces beautiful, fresh skin immediately. It is advised to have fortnightly or monthly treatments along with a good skin care regime for ultimate results

CHEMICAL PEELS

Embrace Aesthetics uses Australian owned ASAP products for your chemical peel. Chemical peels are a treatment that regenerate and rejuvenate the skin by inducing a controlled healing process. All skin types are suitable for treatment.

Chemical Peels can improve sun damaged skin, skin pigmentation, oily skin, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture and strength. Often a combination of both chemical peels and deluxe microdermabrasion is advised. Chemical peels can be undertaken from 2 weeks apart and a max of 6 sessions over a period of 12 weeks is advised

FAQ

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

Dermal fillers or ‘injectable cosmetic filler/injectable facial filler’ in my clinic are made of a cross linked hyaluronic acid that is injected into soft tissue to fill facial wrinkles or “static” lines. Dermal fillers can create volume and fullness to lips and cheeks, for instance to create plumpness and definition. Dermal fillers come in all different thicknesses/consistencies and therefore can be used for simple things such as rehydration of the skin to procedures that replace lost tissue mass. It generally takes 3 to 10 months for filler to break down, yet various factors will affect its longevity.

WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTABLES?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a product that contains Botulinum Toxin that is injected into a muscle. Anti-wrinkle injections do not essentially treat “wrinkles” or the “skin” but they relax the underlying muscle that cause us to have wrinkles and fine lines. Treatments with this product can last for 3 to 4 months

HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE RESULTS?

Dermal fillers are an immediate result but it is important to remember that optimal results are achieved 2 to 3 weeks post your treatment this is due to the process of time that it takes to heal and swelling to completely resolve. Anti-wrinkle treatment can begin to take effect in 2 to 3 days and will have full effect in 10-14 days. Please keep in mind to plan your treatments at least three to five weeks in advance of any special events or occasions.

IS IT PAINFUL?

Both treatments often involve very minimal pain. Some describe some areas as an ant bite sensation or slight discomfort. All filler treatments will involve numbing cream as well as numbing agent within the product itself - if you are fearful of needles or very concerned about discomfort we can have a discussion on how best to treat you and discuss what path to take in regards to numbing agents we use.

WHY DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION?

The medications used for your treatment are considered schedule 4 medications and therefore can only be prescribed by a doctor. If you have had a prescription done somewhere else this is disregarded, you must get a script with Dr Haig, my prescribing doctor.

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR TREATMENTS?

Dermal Fillers - from $400-$600/ml

Anti Wrinkle Injectables - Type A $12/unit, Type B $4.50/unit

Skin Treatments from $99

Please note that for new injectable clients there is an initial $50 fee for a prescription required for your treatment. This prescription is written by my treating doctor and lasts 12 months. This fee is non negotiable and non refundable.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

As with any type of procedure there are risks and side effects that must be considered. Potential side effects of fillers include bruising and swelling, punctures on the skin (only last a couple of days), asymmetry (may have already been present, but at times, enhanced), lumpiness (tends to smooth out with time). Potential side effects of anti-wrinkle treatment include mild and temporary redness, bruising, headaches, infection, leakage to a nearby muscle. Rare side effects are allergy, migration of product, infection, damage deep nerves/vessels, granulomas or lumps. These will be discussed in depth in your consultation.

 

 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON THE DAY OF MY TREATMENT?

The points from your complimentary consultation will be touched on again and any questions you would like to ask can be done so at this time. Additionally:

  • Consent forms will be signed
  • Confirmation of pricing will occur
  • A script will be done with Dr Andrew Haig if not already done so
  • Pre photos will be taken and discussion of what results you would like are confirmed
  • Treatment area may be numbed with numbing cream or ice

  • The procedure will range from 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on what treatment you are having done
  • Post care will be discussed
  • Complimentary follow up appointment will be organized
IS THERE ANYBODY YOU CANNOT TREAT?

You must be at least 18 years old to undergo a treatment and please be aware that I will not treat clients who are pregnant, trying to get pregnant or breastfeeding.

PRE & POST CARE

PRE TREATMENT ADVICE
  • Avoid blood thinning/anti-inflammatory medications if possible for approximately 2 weeks prior to treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, fish oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • It is advised that if taking Retin- A, please cease 2 days before and 2 days after treatment
  • If you are prone to cold sores please be aware that I will not treat an area that is affected with one and that you must reschedule your appointment.
  • If you have history of cold sores also be aware that injectables can cause one to occur as we are causing “trauma” to the lip. It may be advisable to take anti viral medication prior to treatment
POST TREATMENT CARE - ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS
  • Avoid temperatures of extreme heat or cold; for example extensive sun exposure for 72 hours
  • Avoid physical activity of any kind for 24 hours
  • Do not massage or manipulate the treated area for 3 hours post treatment
  • Avoid microdermabrasions/facials/massages to the treated area for 2 weeks post treatment
  • Do not lie down for 4 hours post treatment
POST TREATMENT CARE - DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT
  • Avoid temperatures of extreme heat or cold; for example extensive sun exposure for 72 hours
  • Avoid physical activity of any kind for 24 hours
  • Do not massage or manipulate the treated area for 2 weeks post your treatment (any lumps or bumps will smooth out over the two weeks or will be massaged out by me. If you massage yourself you could mistake a bruise for a lump of product and worsen any bruising or swelling or move product to an undesirable position)
  • It is advised to try to sleep face up and elevate your head slightly with an extra pillow to lessen swelling
  • Some tenderness will be felt post treatment, taking paracetamol as directed is suitable if discomfort is present
  • Icing using a cool compress for 10-15mins of each hour post treatment is advised
  • Taking Arnica tablets at least 2 days prior to treatment to lessen bruising and swelling is also a good idea or using arnica cream post treatment is also an option
  • Avoid consuming excessive amounts of alcohol or salty foods to avoid excessive swelling
