  • Inj - Can I get cosmetic injectable treatments while pregnant

    No. Your safety is our main concern and for this reason, we do not treat clients who are pregnant. We advise against all cosmetic injectable treatments whilst pregnant simply out of precaution and due to the lack of information available on cosmetic injectable treatment effects on the fetus. 

  • Do Dermal Fillers hurt?

    Dermal Fillers feel like a slight pinch, and you may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation as the product is being injected. Everyone experiences pain differently and has different pain thresholds. A topical anaesthetic can be used if needed. However, a topical anaesthetic can be used if needed. Please obtain this from your Pharmacist prior to your treatment.

  • How do I prepare for Anti-Wrinkle Cosmetic Injectables?

    Please avoid vigorous physical activity and alcohol intake for 24 hours prior to the treatment. This will reduce the risk of bruising. Avoid Aspirin, Vitamin E, and blood thinners that are not indicated for a medical condition such as fish oil for one week before the treatment.

  • What should I do prior to the Lip Filler treatment?

    Avoid vigorous physical activity or any large intakes of alcohol for 24 hours as this increases the risk of bruising. Aspirin and Vitamin E should not be taken one week before the treatment.

  • Can I fly after Dermal Filler treatment?

    Avoid international travel for 2 weeks post-treatment. The prolonged cabin air pressure can cause unpredictable swelling and bruising.

    It is recommended to repeat the treatment before the muscle movements return to normal which is typically 3-4 months. This way there is an overlap in results and a continued softening effect.

  • What’s the difference between Dermal Filler and Micro Filler™?

    Unlike dermal fillers, Micro Filler™ does not add volume or structure to the skin – they work in more subtle ways to improve the overall skin balance and ‘boost’ the appearance of the skin. Micro Filler™ will not change the structure of your face like dermal fillers. They hydrate and rejuvenate resulting in a glow to the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines while improving skin tone and texture.

  • Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections work preventatively?

    Yes. Anti-Wrinkle Injections influence the movement of the facial muscles and reduce the contractions to prevent future lines from forming earlier than they might naturally. It is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments that we offer at Laser Clinics New Zealand.

  • How many units will I need to get rid of my frown lines and crow’s feet?

    To determine the correct dosage, we advise you to book in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced Cosmetic Injectors at your nearest Laser Clinics New Zealand location.

  • Who are the best candidates for Micro Filler™?

    Micro Filler™ is suitable for people 18 years + and all skin types. They are extremely effective in treating early signs of ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, imperfections such as acne scars, poor skin texture, dehydrated skin and more. It’s also the perfect treatment for those who simply wish for a refresh of their skin to further improve the skin’s hydration and moisture.

  • Can I eat or drink after Lip Fillers?

    Yes, you can eat and drink after Lip Filler. It may feel a little strange at first as there may be some swelling present. For the first 24 hours, you'll want to avoid eating foods that require excessive chewing so the product can settle.

  • How long do Anti-Wrinkle Cosmetic Injectables results last?

    Anti-Wrinkle treatments begin to work 2-3 days after the treatment and reach their full effect within 7-14 days. The effects can typically last for up to 3-4 months depending on the individual. 

  • How quickly can you clients expect to see their Micro Filler™ results?

    Results can be seen after the first treatment with the full effects after 10 days. For optimum results, a course of 3 Full Face treatments at 3-4 week intervals is recommended.

  • How does Micro Filler™ work?

    Micro Filler is a non-surgical cosmetic injectable treatment. Micro Filler is like dermal fillers in that they contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA). The name may sound scary, but we promise it’s not. HA secretly holds the key to smooth, flawless and hydrated skin. This substance works to maintain skin hydration by binding closely with water and supporting vital collagen and elastin, which work to maintain the integrity and suppleness of our skin. Think of Micro Filler™ like micro-droplets of a long-lasting, water-loving substance, which will absorb water, bringing deep hydration, improved firmness and improved smoothness to the skin.

  • How long do Dermal Fillers last?

    Dermal Fillers can last up to three to six months and in some cases longer depending on how fast the body metabolises the product. Lips are a high activity area as we use them all the time, this can impact how long the results will last.

  • I am booked in for cosmetic injections. Do I need to do anything beforehand?
    Avoid vigorous physical activity or any large intakes of alcohol for 24 hours as this increases the risk of bruising. Aspirin and Vitamin E should not be taken one week before the treatment.
  • What is a "Lip Flip"

    As a part of your usual frown and crow's feet injections, lip flips are a few extra units that act to evert the lip. Usually, the top lip is our focus, we work with the muscle around your mouth to pop your lip a little to show a little more of the wet part of your lip.

    This treatment is simple and can be added to any anti-wrinkle treatment. It lasts approx. 6-8 weeks and offers a subtle change to the lip. This is a great first step to try before deciding on our premium lip filler products.

  • How much does Micro Filler™ cost?

    Full face treatment is $650 for 3ml Micro Filler™

  • What areas and skin concerns can you treat with Micro Filler™?

    Micro Filler™ is unique in that it can treat the whole face at once which makes it a convenient treatment. Additionally, we can treat troublesome areas that no treatment has ever been able to reach before, like under the eyes. So, with this treatment we can treat the upper section, mid-section and lower section of the face for fine lines, dull skin and thin skin, all in one appointment.

  • What Dermal Filler products are used at Laser Clinics?

    For legal reasons, we are unable to publish the brand names of prescription medicines such as Dermal Filler. As the world's largest network of clinics, we only use market-leading brands. At your complimentary consultation, your Cosmetic Injector can freely talk about the options available to you.

  • Do Anti-Wrinkle Cosmetic Injectables hurt?

    Everyone experiences pain differently and has different pain thresholds. However, when it comes to Anti-Wrinkle Cosmetic Injectables, most clients compare the sensation of the face injections to a quick prick. There is a slight pinching feeling, but it only lasts for a few seconds.

    At Laser Clinics New Zealand, Anti-Wrinkle treatments require no anaesthetic. However, a topical anaesthetic can be used if needed. Please obtain this from your Pharmacist prior to your treatment.

  • Can I get Anti-Wrinkle Cosmetic Injectables if I'm under 18?

  • What Anti-Wrinkle products do you use?

    At Laser Clinics New Zealand, we use Botox and Dysport for our Anti-Wrinkle treatments. At your complimentary consultation, your Cosmetic injector can provide the best option suitable to you.

  • How does Micro Filler™ assist with ageing?

    As we age, we lose collagen and elastin, resulting in the skin’s repair mechanisms slowing down creating poor skin tone and texture, lack of elasticity, and the formation of wrinkles. Micro Filler™ works to treat all of these concerns.

  • Are there any side effects after having Dermal Fillers?

    The most common side effects occur within 24 hours or immediately post-treatment. These include swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness.

    Immediate side effects usually disappear within days. However, depending on the type of Dermal Filler used, it can take a few weeks. At Laser Clinics New Zealand we strongly encourage a review appointment which is complimentary 2 weeks post-treatment to discuss your treatment results.

  • What is the aftercare for Dermal Filler treatment?

    As with any Laser Clinics Australia treatment, our Dermal Filler Cosmetic Injectable treatments come with important after-care recommendations in order to achieve the best results. Our experienced medical team share their post-treatment advice:

    - Remain upright for four hours following your treatment and avoid lying down while the product settles into place.
    - Avoid any Skin Treatments like Microdermabrasion, Skin Needling, or Dermal Rolling for two weeks after Dermal Fillers
    - Avoid active skincare products such as Retinol for at least 5 days after the treatment.
    - Avoid alcohol and painkillers such as ibuprofen before and after treatment as they tend to thin the blood and can make you prone to bruising.
    - Do not exercise for 24 hours after your treatment and avoid any exercise that involves inverted poses (e.g. yoga, pilates, barre, etc) and provoke sweating as the Dermal Filler is settling into place.
    - Avoid exposing your skin to excessive heat or cold including saunas, spas, steam rooms, hot yoga, ice baths, or skiing. Changes in temperature can lead you to touch or rub your face more which can put unwanted pressure on the treated muscles, risking dispersion of the protein into unwanted areas.
    - Avoid massaging or applying pressure to the face which can affect how the product settles in a particular area. When cleansing the skin and applying skincare and makeup, only use gentle strokes.
