• “Restylane® is an injectable product and contains hyaluronic acid, therefore subject to the
requirements of Schedule 4 of the SUSDP”

When You Demand Your Prescription, You
Protect Yourself From Illegal Injectors.
Demanding Your Prescription Also Identifies The Doctor Who Saw You, Prescribed and Ordered Your Treatment.

WE PROMISE
You Will Receive Your Prescription For All Cosmetic Injections
Performed By Dr Eldridge.

PROTECT YOURSELF. Ask: "Will I be seeing a doctor?"

PROTECT YOURSELF. Ask: "Will I be seeing a doctor?"You have the RIGHT to be FULLY informed by a doctor of:
• Limitations of cosmetic procedures;
• possible risks; and
• possible alternative treatments

BEFORE you choose to have any procedure.



1/ Only Doctors Can Prescribe Wrinkle Injections. Why? Because in the wrong hands, just like, antibiotics, pain killers and other S4 prescription-only medications things can go wrong. Sadly, deaths have been occurring due to rogue nurses and other scammers who:
  • claim to be ‘qualified’ or
  • claim to be practising under supervision of a doctor who is often not even on the premises.

Nurses are trained in hospitals to inject drugs prescribed by doctors and supervised by doctors who are on the premises.
Nurses are trained to inject muscles of the shoulder, thigh and your behind. This is because those muscles only have one  “danger” zone which is very easy to avoid injecting. Your face, however, is a complex structure with dozens of muscles, and complex arrangements of nerves and blood vessels.

Dentists are trained to inject your gums.

Veterinarians are trained to inject your pets.

Beauticians are trained to sell you beauty products.

Being a registered nurse, vet or dentist does not entitle them to inject your face -
regardless of how many years they tell you they have been doing it.

Although there have been attempts from colleges and other training providers to offer injectable training it is NOT and will NOT be accepted by law or insurance companies.

Those people are breaking the law and therefore you are not insured for everything that goes wrong. According to the government,
"Nurses cannot prescribe and administer Schedule 4 medications without being supervised by a doctor."
You have the RIGHT to be provided a WRITTEN CONSENT form to read and have this form explained to you by a doctor BEFORE you sign and agree to any procedure.

WE GUARANTEE
You Will Be Seen And Treated ONLY By Dr Gary Eldridge.

WE PROMISE

WE PROMISE
You WILL Be Provided With A Full Lengthy Consultation With Dr Eldridge To Discuss Your Treatment Options, Treatment Limitations And Treatment Complications.

WE PROMISE
You Will Be Given An Authentic Written Consent Form And Time To Read, Study, Question And Discuss This With Dr Eldridge BEFORE You Both Agree On Any Treatment.

You have the RIGHT to check your doctor’s record. How?

Only a doctor has been trained in anatomy by doing 3 years of dissection on human cadavers in university.

You can’t learn anatomy properly just from a textbook. You can’t safely know what your injecting by looking at a drug company poster on a salon wall.


3/
Only cosmetic surgeons, plastic surgeons and other facial surgeons are trained to perform procedures
directly on and around the nerves, arteries and muscles of the face. And only these professionals are trained to quickly repair damage to these structures.


4/
Only doctors are insured if things go wrong.



Only a practitioner who is legally qualified to prescribe, inject and administer wrinkle injections (and all
other S4 treatments) will be listed. This government register includes any complaints, restrictions,
reprimands etc.
