About dermal fillers

Dermal Fillers are a non-surgical treatment primarily used to enhance facial contours and restore volume. As we age, our skin loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumizers and moisturisers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) diminish leaving lines and wrinkles. 

To achieve the best natural result, we select the appropriate type of HA gel (made of the same volumizing and moisturising components as your skin) and place it according to each individual’s needs. It all comes down to the efficiency of product selected and its placement, rather than quantity, which ensures the best outcome. A tailored treatment will be designed during the consultation process.

FAQ

Instantly refresh with dermal fillers

As we age, our skin loses its youthful appearance as the production of collagen, natural dermal volumizers and moisturisers known as hyaluronic acid such (HA) diminish. Dermal Filler is an injectable gel which contain the same substance (HA) that replicates the actions of this naturally occurring sugar molecule, which attracts and holds water to assist with skin hydration. Cheek and lip fillers are primarily used to enhance facial contours and restore volume to areas of the face.

‘Fillers’ is the use of the natural Hyaluronic Acid found in the skin, to correct fine lines, enhance shape and increase volume of the skin and facial features.

How safe is it?

All fillers can be reversed if complications arise. Our choice of dermal filler is the most advanced product on the market which integrates readily into your own tissues. This is especially important in areas like your lips, where you want to see the result and minimal side effects and complications.

A comprehensive consultation will be completed to answer your questions and to determine any pre-existing medical conditions or medications which may not be suitable to undergo treatment.

How soon can I return to normal activities?
Some may experience swelling or redness after injection which usually subsides soon after treatment. As the dermal filler is applied via injection you may experience slight bruising, which can be hidden with a concealer.

Are there any side effects?
When injecting into the skin to correct lines and wrinkles, or to sculpt and lift contours, the treatment is relatively painless for some, but others may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort or pain.

Some fillers are available with lidocaine, which helps to reduce the sensation of pain you may feel, maximising your comfort.

How quickly will I see results?
The results are instant! The length of treatment is individualised and may be done over several visits depending on the product and quantity that needs to be used.

A progressive treatment is usually the safest and has the most effective long-term outcome.

How long will the result last?
Depending on filler and quantity used, they usually last from 12-18 months, but decrease from 6 month onwards.

If you have regular treatments the effects may last longer.

PRE-TREATMENT INFORMATION

Whether you undergo a dermal filler or Botox procedure, you may experience some slight swelling, tenderness or bruising in the treated area. This is completely normal and should subside within 1-2 weeks. 

To prepare our clients as best we can for what to expect and what steps to take following an appointment, we have also included some key points to remember below:

  • You are not a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, suffer from neurological disorders., and have allergies to any ingredients used during treatment. 
  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications for 1 week before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen (nurofen) and other non-inflammatory medication have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a holiday. Also bruising and swelling may be apparent during that period. 
  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the area to be treated.
  • If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores. You will need to take preventative treatment on the day of procedure. 
  • Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.
  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or hair removal cream on treatment area for 2 days post treatment. 
  • In the 48 hours following treatment, avoid heat related environments such as sauna, steam rooms and SPAS
  • Avoid applying makeup on the day of treatment.
  • Wait 2 weeks post immunisations for treatment.
