It is mandatory that they sign this consent form in order to proceed with the treatment. The form also asks the client to consent to our marketing and social media release.

- Facebook and Instgram social platforms
- In clinic marketing (educational, informational, research/training)
- External clinic marketing (general advertising, publicity, promotional and website).
When the client consents to this section of the form they are allowing us to use their images for the above purposes. The client can elect to have any identifying features such as their eyes, blurred and made unidentifiable so that they are not able to be clearly recognised in the images.

It is important to us that our clients feel comfortable allowing us to use their images for an informative and educational purpose. We will use the images primarily as ‘before and after’ treatment photos on social media, in order to show the results of treatment and transformations.
If an individual feels strongly about not having their images shown on social media, even if made unidentifiable, they must inform the practitioner performing the treatment, and ensure they do not tick that section of the consent form.
If, after signing the media and marketing release a client changes their mind about this consent, they must make a written request to amend their consent to [email protected] Brisbane Anti Wrinkle & Skin Studios will endeavour to ensure this amended consent is implemented immediately, however, if a social media post has already been made public, it will be at our discretion to delete the content.
