Many of you would have seen the piece that aired on ACA last night about a new treatment for “Chin Fat”. For those of you that have not it is archived here This is a “new” treatment called Kybella. Kybella is an injectable treatment that contains the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, the body’s natural fat metabolising enzyme. What many do
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
We have discussed briefly the importance of volume in the face, and how the face loses volume with age. One area that usually gets overlooked on the face is the temples. Many people, as they get older, loose volume from the temples. The temples should be flat or slightly convex (curved outwards) as in any child’s or young person’s face.
Bruising is a relatively common side effect of cosmetic injectables, so I thought it would be a good idea to discuss it in a little more detail. I want to explain what bruises are, what causes them, and how to minimise the risk of a bruise. Bruises are essentially a leakage of blood into the tissues. A little leak causes
Almost every new patient that I see who is interested in having a little lost volume replenished says exactly the same thing to me. It goes along the lines of “But I’m scarred of looking overfilled – like some of the women I see”. It stands to reason that if these patients have come to see me despite a fear
Be careful how you consult Dr. Google In this age of information at our finger tips it is easy for anyone to research treatments and conditions online. Certainly there is a wealth of information out there, and a lot of it is very good. However there are things that you need to be aware of when researching online. Firstly there
Recent research says that the answer to this question is an unequivocal “yes”. More than one recent piece of research has highlighted the fact that anti-wrinkle injections actually make people feel better – and not just because they often increase self-esteem and self-image. Interestingly, the reason for this was first suggested by Charles Darwin many, many years ago. He suggested
For a long while here in Australia we have had two muscle relaxant anti-wrinkle injectable treatments available. We now have a third. My aim with this post is to explain the differences between them, but unfortunately t…his is rather hard to do. Here in Australia I am not allowed by law to mention the specific names of these products in
It’s an old saying, but it’s very true, and it’s certainly very apt for cosmetic medicine. If you only have one, or a limited number, of tools or treatments available, you tend to believe that you can treat every concern with the one tool that you have at your disposal. Twenty years ago we did not have the anti-wrinkle injections
It’s Not The Arrows That Matter, It’s The Indian That’s Shooting Them. OK I admit it – this is a golfing term, though probably one used in other sports and pastimes as well. To me it means that the equipment used is far less important than the skill of the person using them. For example a golfer might say “I’ve

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.
