Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers, also known as Facial Fillers, are an effective treatment used to smooth and fill lines and wrinkles. Dermal Fillers are made up of a substance called Hyaluronic Acid. This substance is naturally found in our skin and gives our skin hydration and volume. They can help slow down the aging process, and give a more youthful appearance. They can also be used to enhance our natural features and contours such as lips, cheeks and many other areas.

    Which areas can be treated?

    Dermal fillers can be injected anywhere that volume is required to fill in or plump up a fold, a sagging structural feature, a wrinkle or a depression. They can also be used to enhance facial features. Popular areas to add volume and fullness to include the lips, cheeks and bridge of the nose.

    How long does a dermal filler treatment take?

    The injection process takes 20-30 minutes, you will also need to allow time to have your consultation. For certain areas we may recommend that you have dermal fillers done in two or three consecutive sessions. This will help you achieve more subtle changes and more natural-looking results in areas that require larger quantities of filler.

    What aftercare of dermal fillers is needed?

    It is very important for you to revisit the clinic for a follow up consultation and “moulding” within one to two days after the dermal filler is injected.

    Apply a cool compress to the treatment area (do not apply ice directly to the skin) for 10 minutes every half an hour on the day of treatment.

    Avoid any heat inducing activities for 24 hours such as strenuous exercise, spas, saunas and hot showers.

    Avoid pressure on the area for the first 48 hours (sleep on your back if possible, no face down massages).

    Avoid alcohol for 24 hours

    Avoid use AHAs, retinols, vitamin C and oil based makeup for 24 hours.

    Avoid facials, waxing, chemical peels, skin needling, microdermabrasion, IPL or laser treatments for 2 weeks after treatment.

    Do not massage the treatment area unless instructed to do so.

    How long do the results last?

    How long the effects of dermal fillers will last depends on the product, the area of treatment, and the patient. Generally speaking, the denser the product is and the more deeply it is injected, the longer it will last, although this is not a hard and fast rule. To maintain your results, your cosmetic surgeon will simply repeat treatment, adjusting the amount and techniques as necessary to ensure optimal results.

     

    Do dermal fillers hurt?

    Unlike procedures such as surgical face lifts or implants, dermal fillers require no cuts, incisions or stitches to be made. It may involve some light pain or discomfort. Clients describe it as a tiny scratch as the needle goes in, with a slight stinging sensation as the filler is applied. For those feeling anxious, we can use a local anaesthetic to numb the area completely. Afterwards there may be some swelling or bruising. The swelling fades within 48 hours; the bruising can take up to a fortnight to fade.
