Envisage Medical Director Dr Chris Leat Has Advice on Dermal Filler Injections I have been asked to comment on a segment that aired earlier this week on ACA in Australia. It concerned a young woman, Mikayla, who suffered side effects from a dermal filler injection to her lip. The segment discussed some interesting points and highlighted a few important topics.
Last Thursday there was a segment on A Current Affair about the dangers of anti-wrinkle injections, and I felt it might be worthwhile to discuss and clarify some of the issues raised. Please note that legally I am unable to use the brand name or drug name of the product used, so I will use the term “anti-wrinkle injections”. During
You may have seen the story featured on Channel Seven’s Sunrise Program this morning about the risks of Cosmetic Procedures. Dr Christopher Leat Medical Director of Envisage Skin Clinic responds to the story: “This is a well-balanced look at the industry.

ASIANS AGE BETTER THAN CAUCASIANS Asian races tend to age better than Caucasian races for a few reasons. Firstly their skin is darker and therefore is better protected from sun damage. Secondly they have thicker skin, and lastly they have a wider face shape. This increases their facial volume and means that they suffer less from the facial shape changes
I’ve discussed fillers and adding volume to the face a little. But what about when we want to remove volume? As we age the face looses volume – mainly from the upper half, the temples and cheeks. But there is often also an increase in volume right down at the bottom of the face – in the jowl area, and
Over time, the inevitable effects of age will cause our skin to sag and become less elastic. To minimize or slow the effects of ageing, good skin care together with healthy lifestyle choices are necessary. So here are some tips to help! 1.

A little bit about a sensitive issue In my last post I said that I would talk a little more about some of the problems we are seeing from dermal filler treatments performed elsewhere.

Carl is amazing!! Thank you for changing my life. So down to earth and patient.
I can’t speak highly enough about how welcome and helpful all the girls are at Envisage. Natalie and Jamie who I have had treatments with were just so helpful, friendly and down to earth. I received the warmest welcome from the girls on reception and they are more than helpful when booking backup appointments. Thank you for your very pleasant and warm atmosphere at Envisage.
Cannot fault the lovely service and smiles I receive every time I go to Envisage. Great team, professional service and always a smile to walk away with. Thank you 🙂
I have been there twice and both times I have left feeling very happy with the service and am definitely going to recommend to friends. I would way rather pay a little bit more and get looked after the way I have at your clinic. Thankyou.
I was apprehensive at first going to a new place but I was made to feel very comfortable – thank you. Looking forward to my next visit.
So pleased with the service from Envisage: appointment reminders and changes if needed. Samantha is the best and I’m so glad I decided to try Samantha and Envisage. The results of my treatments are outstanding and The actual procedures were very comfortable with no down time. I look forward to revisiting Samantha and Envisage for continuing work in progress.
Carl is fantastic! I’d recommend him to anyone trying anti-wrinkle treatments or any other procedure for the first time as he takes the time to explain the procedure and the options thoroughly. I thought getting needles in the face would hurt, but Carl’s technique is flawless and painless. Envisage will exceed your expectations from your first visit.
Emily was very pleasant and helpful, answering my many questions and concerns about different procedures. The clinic was attractive but not intimidating.
You have rewound the years on my face and I now look as young, as I feel on the inside.
