Curious About Injectables? FAQ's

by Elan Clinics

Perhaps you have thought about booking in a filler or anti-wrinkle treatment as you walked past a clinic but had too many questions to simply wander in. 

This is entirely understandable. Injectables treatments are not something you should do without careful consideration of what treatments are required to get optimal results and who is conducting your treatment.

So you head to the scientific papers on Google and leave confused and with even more questions.

Our solution is simple. 

Book in a consultation with our registered nurse and she will answer all of your questions in a no-pressure, pleasant environment. 

From there, you can either book an appointment or, if not, at least you have had your questions answered.


What is in the injection?

A purified protein that relaxes muscles and minimises wrinkles that are already there and prevents new ones from forming.

What about the different brands?
