Q. What is the downtime after a cosmetics procedure?
The downtime is different for different cosmetic procedures.
After treatment with anti wrinkle injections, most clients are only left with a mild red area at injection site of injection, and this usually disappears within 15 minutes.
For more invasive skin treatments such as anti wrinkle injections you may experience swelling and redness after treatment, and in some cases mild to moderate bruising. Swelling will be greatly reduced by applying a cold compress to the area.
If you do get a bruise then rubbing Hirudoid or Arnica cream into the area for 2-3 days post treatment can help to reduce the discoloration.
Most chemical peels and laser treatments leave the skin sensitive as a result of the removal of dead skin cells. Clients can expect their skin to appear red for a few hours followed treatment, and for more intensive peels or laser treatments may experience flaking for a few days after the procedure.
Skin will be sun sensitive after skin peels, so we recommend wearing a SPF sunscreen for at least a week following a chemical peel or laser treatment and avoiding direct expose to the sun for at least a week.
Q. How much does the treatment at Sydney Cosmetic Clinic cost?
Because there is no one size fits all skin treatment, we can’t provide an accurate quote for cosmetic procedure without first meeting a client and discussing their individual skin concerns and considering what treatment options are available.
This is why at Skin Cosmetics Sydney we offer all clients a free initial consultation to review the various personalised cosmetic treatment and skincare options.

Q. Are the cosmetics procedures safe?
At Sydney Cosmetics Clinic all our procedures are performed by a trained and qualified medical doctor, Dr Tom.
Non-surgical cosmetic medicine does not require general anesthetic and all procedures are relatively non invasive. This means that cosmetic medicine is the safest form beauty enhancement.
Q. How often do I need to have cosmetic treatment or injections done?
Different cosmetic treatments last for different amounts of time.
Chemical skin peels can be performed monthly, whereas anti wrinkle injections will normally decrease or remove facial wrinkles for between 3-6 months. Dermal filler injections last longer. These cosmetic injections tend to last for 12-18 months and can have ongoing benefits for years after initial treatment.
Q. What can I do to assist the healing process after my cosmetic treatment?
There are a few things you can do to aid the healing process.
Applying ice packs after dermal fillers and laser treatments are recommended to reducing swelling and taking excess heat from the skin. Try to avoid taking anti inflammatory drugs for pain relief within the first 36 hours, as these can can make bruising worse.
Q. Can I expose my face to sun after laser treatment?
Laser treatments, chemical peels and dermarollers take off dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin. This process makes your skin very sun sensitive. Depending on the strength of the cosmetic treatment, your skin could be sensitive for months.
For a mild treatment you would expect sun sensitivity for a couple days, while for a deep treatment your skin may be sensitive for months.
After facial lasers and peels it is important to protect your skin and assist it to heel. As well as keeping out of the sun at the hottest time of the day, and always applying a SPF30+ sunscreen, we recommend using the support of rationale Niacinimide skin serum combined with SPF30+ day cream.
