Introduction To Correction and Revision
Dr Kate Jameson specialises in corrective and revision treatments for clients who may have had complications from procedures performed elsewhere. Unfortunately cosmetic medical and surgical procedures still carry risks and often adverse events can occur.
In addition, due to no adequate regulation in the cosmetic medical industry, there are providers offering procedures for which they are not adequately trained, nor insured to perform. As such, this has resulted in a rise in ‘botched’ treatments and an increase in adverse events.
Many inexperienced (and unethical practitioners) will offer discounted prices to get clients through the door, however when a complication or adverse event occurs they are not equipped, nor willing to manage these complications. Many clients report being ignored or brushed off by these practitioners and are desperately searching for help.
Dr Kate Jameson and our team routinely manage many of these clients and strongly believe in advocating for best practice and ethical medicine in the cosmetic medical industry. Dr Kate has a special interest in corrective procedures.
frequently asked questions
+ WHAT ARE THE CORRECTIVE AND REVISION SERVICES THAT ARE OFFERED?
At Youth Lab we offer a range of corrective services for ‘botched’ injectable procedures (such as wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers). We have the expertise, equipment and knowledge to manage adverse events such as ischemia, infection and burns.
We also have close relationships with some of the best plastic surgeons in the WA state who we can refer for more complicated surgical corrections.
Some of the corrective services we offer include:
- Correction of lip fillers e.g. lumpy lips, infection, poor cosmetic outcomes.
- Correction of swollen, puffy and lumpy tear trough (under eye) fillers or unsightly results from dermal fillers placed elsewhere.
- Infection as a result of dermal filler injections.
- Treatment of necrosis (skin breakdown and death) following dermal filler injection – this is an emergency treatment and all clients will be offered priority treatments.
- Correction of poorly placed wrinkle injections resulting in eyebrow droop, eye droop or asymmetry.
- Hyperpigmentation following laser, BBL, IPL or chemical peels.
- Scars and skin wounds following cosmetic treatments.
+ HOW LONG WILL THE CORRECTIVE PROCESS TAKE?
It is important for clients to note that the corrective and revision process may take time with multiple treatments required. Different modalities may also be used including dissolving dermal filler with Hyaluronidase (Hylase™), re-treatment with more dermal filler or wrinkle injections, light based treatments such as laser and LED, antibiotics,/antivirals to treat infection, steroids to treat inflammation, hyperbaric oxygen and PRP to name a few.
+ HOW MUCH DOES THE CORRECTIVE TREATMENT COST?
Full quotations will be provided at consultation as every correction is unique. Corrective and revision services are for significant complications, not simply for those clients who regret having a treatment or who have unrealistic expectations regarding results.
Youth Lab also offers free of charge corrective services for certain clients. This is performed at the doctor’s discretion.
