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.
The words “chemical peel” for many of us can sound scary and may even conjure up a famous scene from sex and the city of Samantha’s unimpressed face resembling a tomato with her skin literally peeling off. Well at least I know it does for me but I might just be showing my age. Let’s get one thing straight, you
We all know the feeling of simply wanting a bite to eat and the fast food chain employee asks “Do you want to upgrade to a meal deal? or Do you want fries with that? Well I’m confident there are not many Cosmetic Doctors or Nurses in Australia are not directly asking “Do you want Filler with your Tox?” Out of context,
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
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS As the name suggests, dermal fillers are used essentially to fill out the skin. In actual fact they can be used under the skin to add volume to key areas of the face as well as into the skin to fill individual lines or scars. Don’t think dermal fillers are just used to make lips and
I thought today I would answer some of the most asked questions about Anti-Wrinkle Injections. Let’s get right into it! How much do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Cost? Probably not as much as you may think. The price obviously varies depending on the areas treated and the dose which needs to be used, which can differ from patient to patient. We charge
It’s something that affects many. Tired eyes and dark circles. Do you always look like you had a bad night’s sleep (or a big night out!)? Do people constantly ask you if you are tired? What causes dark circles? There are three main causes of constant dark circles under the eyes. Some people actually develop sun damage pigment in this
Although both dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections have been around for many years I still get asked this question regularly. They are very different treatments Why the confusing names? In Australia these injectable treatments are all categorised as S4 drugs. This means that they are on a doctor’s prescription only and cannot by law be advertised to the public. I
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. Of course we don’t actually know how many procedures are performed in Australia as there is no mandatory reporting.
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.

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.
