💉 The What?

Modern fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is present in our cells, particularly in the skin and joints.

💧 The How?

Hylauronic acid is a type of sugar (polysaccharide) that attracts and binds to water in the skin and swells, causing a smoothing/filling/volumising effect.

🎯 The Procedure.

A stabilised version is injected to add volume, lift or add hydration.

🎓 The Which?

There are several TGA approved products, from skin boosters for hydration, superficial fillers for fine skin areas to more structural fillers for lines, lifting and volume. One size does not fit all. It is important that your doctor has experience and chooses the appropriate filler, according to your needs, facial structure and budget.

Dermal fillers are a safe, temporary and versatile treatment for the improvement of many different areas and skin concerns.

Fillers can

  • Enhance lip size and shape.
  • Sculpt cheeks.
  • Enhance chin and profile.
  • Define or reshape the nose.
  • Correct nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Enhance facial shape.
  • Improve the appearance of scars and acne scars.
  • Restore volume to the temples, brow and forehead giving the upper face and eye area a lift.
  • Improve dark circles, fine lines and volume loss under the eyes.

And then…

Swelling is common and generally more severe when the lips are injected. This usually subsides within a few days. Bruising can occur after the injection, but usually, resolves within seven days. It can take up to two weeks for the swelling and bruising to completely subside and the final result to be revealed.
