The Blog STUDIO 10: Dr Josh Wall Talks Anti-Wrinkle and Dermal Filler Treatments
“I know a thing or two about having wrinkles, but Dr Josh Wall, Medical Director of Contour Clinics, is an expert at getting rid of them.” – Kate Albert, Studio 10
Studio 10 delivers a fresh take on what everyone’s talking about, with a side of laughs and plenty of sunshine. Every weekday at 8am, Sarah Harris and Tristan MacManus bring audiences news, chat and entertainment at a time when the world is looking for positivity, community and connection.
In this informative segment, Studio 10 presenter Kate Albert chats with Dr Josh about Contour Clinics, what sets us apart, the treatments we provide, and what patients are wanting right now.
Don’t injectables make people look fake?
One of the most common concerns we see is the fear that anti-wrinkle injections will make your usually-animated face look ‘frozen’, or that fillers will cause a puffy effect.
Au contraire! Sure, there are some dubious practitioners and some botched jobs caused by inexperienced hands.
But in reality, when administered by a properly accredited medical professional with the adequate experience, skill, and eye for facial anatomy, these injectable treatments achieve results that are subtle, believable, and natural looking.
The secret to this, is to treat every patient as an individual.
“Because we’re so education focused, there’s no cookie-cutter approach to any treatments. We’re very much individualised. Everyone’s muscles are a little bit different, everyone’s wrinkles are a bit different.” – Dr Josh Wall
By treating each patient as the unique individual that they are, the most desirable and suitably natural-looking result can be achieved. The goal is fresh, not faux.
Injectable beauty boom
Why are more and more people opting for some injectable beauty assistance these days?
“We all want to look fresh and awake.” – Kate Albert, Studio 10
“All of these treatments are about confidence.” – Dr Josh Wall
Most importantly, these injectable treatments give people back the power to feel good about themselves and be happy in their own skin.
Best face forward
One of our happy patients is personal trainer to the stars and social media influencer, Jono Castano, who counts Richard Branson and Rebel Wilson among his clients.
Jono loves to visit Contour Clinics for a combination of treatments. By teaming his anti-wrinkle with tear-trough filler and jawline filler, Jono feels strong and confident – an essential attribute for his profession as a celebrity personal trainer.
“When I get a treatment done, I walk out a much better person.” – Jono Castano, Personal Trainer
Taboo or not taboo
Kate asks Dr Josh a big question: “Do you think the taboo about injectables is fading?”
It’s an important and relevant query; once upon a time, treating the signs of ageing with anything beyond a face cream was cause for secrecy.
Nowadays, treatments such as anti-wrinkle and dermal filler are so common and accepted as the norm, that we’re far more open and honest about our preference for these beautification methods.
“Everyone knows someone who’s had a treatment done.” – Dr Josh Wall
What’s more, men are now shaking off the old-fashioned shame associated with caring about their appearance and are increasingly opting for cosmetic medicine, with guys proud to top up their treatments at regular intervals.
“For men at the moment, it’s all about sculpting the perfect jawline,” reveals Dr Josh.
All angles covered
Which brings us to the all-important phenomenon of profile-plasty; an aesthetic focus on our profile, or appearance from the side.
“In this modern age of social media, everyone’s getting snapped from the side,” Dr Josh points out.
Contour Clinics specialises in side-profile augmentation, using dermal filler to create balance and harmony for the facial structure.
This can include non-surgical rhinoplasty, also known as a ‘nose job’ but using filler, not scalpels.
Or, it can be adding volume and structure to a weak chin in order to bring it into alignment with other facial features such as the nose and lips, which creates a much more attractive appearance side-on.
