A bit about Dr Sarah Freilich…
“I’ve worked in the industry for 15 years. I became interested in cosmetic injectables because I loved that a minimally invasive procedure could make women feel fresher, less tired and better about themselves without going under the knife. I also felt there was a need for more people in the industry to do cosmetic injectables in a soft, subtle way without the approach that ‘bigger is better’. From a personal perspective, it’s an industry that plays to my strengths – I have a steady hand!”
Most popular treatment
“The most popular treatment is probably still botulinum toxin injections. We aren’t allowed to name the brands due to TGA rules, but reducing frowns and crow’s feet is still the most popular request I get.”
Dr Sarah Freilich’s favourite treatment
“I love an immediate result, and with dermal fillers you get that instant gratification – botulinum toxin takes a few days to work. My favourite treatment is cheek fillers, as it provides an instant lift to the lower face; a little bit of projection along the cheekbone giving radiance straight away.
What she gets done herself:
“‘A shoemaker’s son always goes barefoot’; likewise, I don’t do my own injectables as much as I’d like to. I certainly have botulinum toxin in my crow’s feet and frown lines, but wear a fringe so don’t do my forehead. I also pop some dermal filler into my cheeks to give me a bit of lift. I have had filler in my lips before but don’t like to overdo it because I’m a big fan of the natural, fresh look.
Exciting developments in the industry
Right now I’m pretty pumped about the new dermal filler I’ve been using which has an added antioxidant in it. That’s an exciting development to dermal fillers! I’m also excited about using polydioxonone threads (PDO threads). They’re minimally invasive and take a bit of time to see the full effects but make the skin more taut and firmer, with minimal downtime.
