When you book online or in clinic for any consultation, a $250 consultation fee is payable. This acts a both deposit as well as a consultation fee and a time slot is reserved for you.
If you have a treatment on the same day as your consultation, $250 is either:
- deducted off the total if you don't need a future booking
- kept on file for your next booking
If you need more time to think over things, you decide to delay your treatment for social reasons or you're not suitable for a treatment, the $250 fee is not refundable or transferable to another day.
Why can't I get a quote before I book?
New patients often want to know a ballpark price of what their treatment will be before they book in. And that's totally understandable as you'll want to know if your budget covers what's needed.
But each and every face is completely different. Until you've had an in depth consultation, it's really impossible to know how much filler or anti-wrinkle might be required or what technique might be required. Dr Jake recommends that new patients come with an open mind to try and understand facial aesthetics properly instead of only focusing on the price or over-simplified outcomes like 'cheek fillers'.
Imagine a mechanic trying to quote what your car repair might cost before they've had a chance to assess your car - it won't be possible! They'll need to see the car, assess the damage, work out what parts are needed and also tailor the repair to the car make, year of registration and so on.
Facial aesthetics and injectables are really no different and it would be completely wrong to quote you a price before you've been consulted and had a facial examination. As a result, Dr Jake doesn't advertise prices like 'cheek filler' or 'jawline filler' - your face is special and will be treated as such.
What consultation should I book?
Consultations for new patients
Consultations for returning patients
A consultation is a fundamental part of your treatment planning journey and new patients are given longer booking slots. More time is dedicated for new patients to explore their medical history, needs and to take time to ensure that it's the right treatment for them.
Clinical photos are taken to help analyse what treatments might be recommended and of course, a consent form will need to be filled out prior to any treatment.
Regardless of what treatment you think you might want, you will need to have a full consultation to evaluate your aesthetic needs and for Dr Jake to design a sensible treatment plan for you.
What's included in the price?
Your medical history, previous aesthetic treatments, wants, wishes and worries will all be explored.
It's vitally important to understand you as a person, your job, your personality and so on. This will help guide what treatment options may help improve how you want to be perceived, but also without feeling self-conscious or looking 'done'.
Clinical photos will be taken to explore why certain treatments may or may not be suitable for your own features. These will also be kept as a medical record to help monitor your progress.
Dr Jake is one of very few injectors in Australia who also incorporates aesthetic ultrasound into his injecting to further improve his accuracy and safety. If this is required before, during or after a filler treatment it is complimentary (unless you book for filler dissolving from another injectors work)
Only the most comfortable needles are used for anti-wrinkle injections and for fillers, the market-leading TSK cannulas.
A complimentary review is always be offered (bookable straight after your treatment or later by yourself online)
You'll be given Dr Jake's direct details so you can contact him personally if you ever have any urgent questions or concerns.
