At Skin Essentials, we take our duty to our patients and the medical model of care seriously.
Our main services are as follows, each with its own separate consultation type:
These are our only advertised services.
We do NOT offer anti wrinkle treatment only, cheek/lip filler services, fat dissolving injections or anything similar, only a full face approach to medical aesthetics which will include a combination of what is needed to help restore the ageing face back to youth and vitality, depending on the concerns, assuming they are not “surgery only”.
Why are we so stringent?
Patients being sold the idea of medical procedures, including drugs, being “just beauty” promoted heavily by Pharma and injected by often inexperienced injectors are one of the biggest reasons we see the epidemic of distorted and overfilled faces as well as avoidable complications that can put people off having ANY medical aesthetics.
Anyone with some decent training and experience of facial anatomy and facial ageing understands that faces don’t age in isolation, like compartments of a house, and the whole face needs assessment and treatment for harmonious results using a multi-technique approach.
At Skin Essentials, we strongly encourage this full face approach for best results in patients who are ready, realistic and willing and able to budget over a period of time, typically 4-6 months and 4-6 visits for final results by 9-12 months, at which point we enter the maintenance phase for successive years.
All new patients need an initial consultation where Dr Imaan spends the time needed to assess your concerns and advise on best steps including skincare personalised to you, injectables (anti wrinkle injections as well as fillers) as well as skin therapies and an accurate quote to achieve these results so we can get started.
We aim to build trust slowly and for us to continue working exclusively together for years to come.
We are results driven for longterm relationships with our patients.
Our services are reassuringly expensive and we freely acknowledge that we are not for everyone.
As a ballpark estimate depending on your age when starting and the degree of concerns to address and improve, you’d be looking at anywhere from $6k to upwards of $15k in the first year to reach maintenance for the face.
Our most common demographic is women in the age ranges 35-55 and the average spend over the first 4-6 months averages $12-15k. Thereafter annual maintenance is around $6k.
Treatments in the initial phase are clustered close together and typical results take around 3-6 months depending in large part on your consistency.
Thereafter, maintenance is far more manageable on your wallet and your calendar.
It is important to us in the interests of transparency that you are aware of this prior to booking an appointment and ready to begin if appropriate on the day as results heavily depend on your readiness and willingness to follow the treatment plan created for you with Dr Imaan.
What is next?
Now that you have an idea of the kind of investment that is required and have had a look at our Instagram pages at some of our results, you can decide for yourself and book when ready to commence.
As of March 2023, we are limiting the number of new patients we take on each month who are ready to begin the Full Face Aesthetics approach, with no new patients taken on in November and December.
Once these spots are filled, new patients will be unable to make an appointment till spots open the following month though you’re welcome to book, prepay the non refundable consultation fee and email us to get onto a waiting list earlier.
Upon booking, you will be emailed a new patient intake form and we require this is completed within 48 hours so we can ensure you have chosen correctly and are likely to be suitable. If you are unsuitable, or you have not completed the form within 48 hours, your appointment will be cancelled and your fee refunded so we can offer the spot to someone else.
All prices are a guide, an accurate quote will be provided following consultation; prices are also subject to change in line with inflation Jan/Feb each year and July each year for Medicare rebateable services and occasionally without warning if suppliers raise prices unexpectedly so please check before booking if this will impact you.
We also offer third party finance via TLC if this is of interest to you.
Please note minimum spend for anti wrinkle treatment is $250 at any given appointment.
We do not offer dermal filler packages, nor do we offer filler by the syringe for specific areas eg lips, or cheeks or tear troughs.
These are all determinations you will make with your doctor to come up with the best plan for you to address your concerns. We charge a flat rate for most brands of dermal filler with some exceptions for filler used for the lower face, around chin and jaws.
Prices quoted include complimentary ultrasound facial mapping if required for higher risk areas. We do not offer a 0.5ml syringe option.
Biostimulator fillers work differently to HA fillers in that they generally stimulate your own collagen over 6-12 weeks, which is then yours to maintain over time. For this reason, a series of treatments is needed intially, usually 2-3 sessions a month apart, after which maintenance is a single session every 6-12 months, like all collagen inducing therapies.
These will be individualised to you, your skin concerns and needs.
Physician-only peels begin from $150/session and based on their mix and strength will vary in cost upto $350/peel for melasma (Mela Peel Forte – will need prior skin prep with at home skincare sold as a package prior)
All assessment for chemical peels require a consultation prior to determine suitability and most patients will require personalised skincare which may include prescription medication for 6-8 weeks prior to prepare the skin before the sessions.
Needs prior assessment to determine size and cost and number of sessions.
$80 standalone, $50 as an add-on to other treatments
Common complaints I hear of when meeting patients for the first time, whether new to medical aesthetics or new to me, is issues with their anti wrinkle dose and "wearing off too quickly".
