Dermal Filler

Dermal filler injections restore lost volume and enhance your features. They fill facial lines, wrinkles and deep folds, reduce tired and sagging skin under the eyes, smooth skin around the lips, and plump certain areas such as lips and cheeks. They can also contour your face, refine your chin, augment your nose and improve the appearance of scars.

HOW IT WORKS

Dermal filler injections contain hyaluronic acid (HA) - a naturally occurring substance in the skin that stabilises structure, attracts and binds water, and improves elasticity. HA fills the space of volume loss and stimulates skin cell renewal. The injections can treat your face including; cheeks, lips, and chin, as well as your neck, décolletage and hands.

 

RESULTS

Results are visible immediately and optimal in one to two weeks. They last six to twelve months, depending on the area treated and the product prescribed. The dermal filler will gradually and naturally degrade in the body. Regular treatments will maintain results.

 

TREATMENT PREPARATION

Before your treatment:

  • Avoid blood-thinning medication (e.g. aspirin ibuprofen, fish oil, and St John’s) wort one week prior
  • Advise the clinic if you have:
    • Had a major dental procedure recently, or have one planned
    • A long-haul flight planned
    • Had rhinoplasty – you will need written consent from your treating surgeon to proceed.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Prior to your first treatment, our doctor will consult with you to assess your suitability for dermal filler and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.

The procedure involves a small amount of the prescribed product being administered into the selected areas using a very fine needle, or in some instances, a canula. The injections may sting for a few seconds, and in some instances a numbing agent will be used.

 

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE

Anyone who:

  • Is hypersensitive to ingredients including hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, amide-type local anaesthetics and gram-positive bacterial proteins
  • Currently has an active skin infection (e.g. a cold sore) sunburn, eczema, or psoriasis
  • Has a history of hypertrophic scarring
  • Is pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Is under 18 years of age.

If you are unsure, contact your local clinic.

 

RISKS, SIDE EFFECTS AND COMPLICATIONS

Side effects are rare, but may include:

  • Redness in the treatment area, which is usually resolved within 24 hours
  • Swelling in the treatment area, which is usually resolved within two days
  • Bruising, which is usually resolved in seven to ten days
