One of the enquiries that we often hear, is why is there such a price difference within the cosmetic industry? If you ring several clinics, you will undoubtedly be quoted different prices for the same cosmetic injectable treatment. This must be confusing for potential patients.
It is important to remember that when you are having these treatments, you are not just purchasing the dermal filler or anti-wrinkle injections. Receiving cosmetic injectables is a medical service.
A few analogies, might help:
- If you are hiring someone to paint your house, are you just paying for the paint?
- When you order a meal at a restaurant, are you just paying for the cost of the food?
- When you go to the hairdressers to have your hair coloured, are you just paying for the cost of the hair dye?
- If you buy an original painting for your home, are you only paying for the cost of the canvas and paint?
Are all painters the same? Are all chefs equal? Would you trust your hair to just anybody? Would you put just any canvas in your home?
When considering where to have cosmetic injectables, there are a few questions that you should ask before the price:
- Is my practitioner a qualified medical professional? In Australia, you must be either a nurse or doctor to administer dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections.
- Do I feel comfortable with my practitioner?
- Do they have experience?
- Have they listened to me?
- Have I seen before and after photos of their work? Do I like what I see?
- Have they answered all of my questions to my satisfaction?
- Have I felt rushed?
- Have I received a personalised treatment plan?
