In this episode of HealthCert’s GP Insights podcast, we talk about dermal fillers with Dr Helena Rosengren, an experienced Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Medicine Physician based in Townsville.
In the podcast, Dr Rosengren discusses the patient demand for cosmetic injectables, specifically dermal fillers, and which patients she typically treats with dermal fillers in her own primary care cosmetic clinic. She explains the types of concerns these treatments can be used for and the patients who are the best candidates (plus the patients she would avoid treating!).
Dr Rosengren walks through how she conducts a skin consultation with patients requesting dermal fillers and how she plans out their treatment, including what’s involved in the initial consultation.
The podcast also explores adverse events that a practitioner should be aware of before performing dermal fillers on a patient and how to identify when a patient has had “enough” dermal filler.
Dr Rosengren provides her experts tips on how practitioners can achieve a more natural and subtle look, rather than the dreaded “over-filled” look, along with her advice for how to start out offering this service in your primary care or cosmetic clinic, including how to set up the services to run efficiently and how to market treatments to patients.
Lastly, Dr Rosengren takes us through some of the challenges a practitioner might encounter when starting out and provides her advice for overcoming those challenges.
Hear all this and much more in the full podcast above.
