What does an Accredited Practice mean?
In order to receive accreditation, we were examined very carefully by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS). ACHS is the same assessment authority that governs quality assurance and best practice in Australia’s major hospitals. We are proud to say we successfully passed our Accreditation survey, and by all accounts, with flying colours.
When it comes to cosmetic medicine, you can be sure that epiclinic’s services meet the most rigorous standards of hygiene, credentialing, privacy and professionalism.
Who is the best candidate for cosmetic treatment?
More and more patients are deciding to undergo cosmetic treatment at an earlier age. Many of our patients are coming to see us in their early 30’s as a preventive measure. When deciding if Cosmetic treatment is right for you, it is important to ask yourself “will this treatment enhance my self-confidence while helping me to look as young as I feel?”
Why should I consider cosmetic treatment?
How you look has a dramatic effect on how you feel about yourself. Your self-esteem and confidence directly impacts your life, both professionally and socially. Maintaining your looks as you age is a positive step toward being confident, happy and fulfilled with who you are as an individual.
Will treatment dramatically change my appearance?
Non-surgical Cosmetic Treatments create subtle changes to the face and body to recreate harmony in your appearance. At epiclinic® we believe in enhancing your individual beauty as opposed to changing your appearance.
Is there much downtime with cosmetic treatments?
Many Cosmetic Medicine procedures are now being labelled “lunch time treatments” as it is possible to have a non-surgical procedure and still return to work as per usual. Treatments which require no ‘down time’ include; Anti-wrinkle treatment, Dermal Fillers as well as many skin rejuvenation treatments.
How do I prepare for my treatment?
This will depend upon the treatment you are undergoing. Certain cosmetic procedures require specific preparation and post treatment care. For specific instructions, please call epiclinic® on 08 8227 2242 prior to your appointment.
