Dermal fillers, Botox treatment, and laser hair removal are just some of the few procedures you can get from an aesthetic medical clinic. While there is nothing wrong with aesthetic treatments, you should do more research so you can set realistic expectations.
Here are some important safety reminders:
1. Finding a Reputable Clinic
The first thing you need to do is find a well-established aesthetic medical clinic. Ask for recommendations from your family and friends. Consider the length of their experience in the field. If the clinic just opened recently, be sure to check the profile of their doctors or surgeons. Check their background and credentials. If possible, ask for referrals. Get feedback from their current and previous clients.
2. Knowing the Possible Risks
One of the things you need to understand is that there are no guaranteed results for every treatment. In fact, each procedure imposes different risks. The clinic should always educate their clients about these risks and explain how to prevent them.
This is also a good way to tell if you are dealing with a reliable aesthetic doctor. Typically, they provide learning sessions to their clients about certain procedures. Most clinics even require physical examinations to ensure that you are fit to undergo the procedure.
3. Observing the Facilities
During the initial consultation, the staff may take you on a tour of their clinic. Observe the facilities and equipment they use. From there, you can gauge the quality of their services. Some even present their business permits and other legal documents. You can also verify the information with the Singapore Ministry of Health.
4. Knowing the Rates
Rates may vary depending on the treatment, the clinic’s or doctor’s expertise and background and desired results. It is best to ask for a detailed breakdown, so you can prepare your budget early enough.
These are just some of the things you should consider when getting an aesthetic treatment. Always remember that you must prioritise your health and safety.
