Dermal fillers were created to add volume, lift and symmetry to your face, providing a rejuvenated and natural appearance. Most popular areas are improving volume of lips and the cheek areas, but this is also a great treatment if you are worried about your nasolabial lines, want to get rid of smile lines, or want laugh line fillers to smooth out lip wrinkles, dermal fillers allow you to restore your facial balance, restore lost facial volume and reduce the appearance of common signs of ageing.
As we age, our skin loses that plumpness, hydration and elasticity. Dermal fillers are an anti-ageing treatment that can restore these elements of the face. A gel-based compound which is based on a naturally occurring bodily substance, a sugar molecule, is injected into the skin, giving fullness and hydration to the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and plumping up sagging contours. This gives the complexion a fresh, natural and more youthful appearance.
The substance used in dermal fillers is found naturally in the body and plays a vital role in the skin’s ability to counter the natural and environmental causes of ageing.
Dermal fillers are used for certain areas of the face and body that require volume, firmness and hydration. They are most commonly used in the cheeks and to plump the lips, but can also be applied to the hands, around the eyes, and other areas of the face. Cheek fillers are a particularly popular option that can create an instant face lift.
We offer dermal fillers in Melbourne to treat:
Smile lines, also known as laugh lines or nasolabial folds, form as the muscles contract with every repeated smile or laugh. They form on the sides of the mouth and can finish up towards the nose. Smile lines are some of the deeper lines around the mouth, and while they indicate that you’re someone who smiles and laughs a lot, they can lead to an aged appearance. Laugh line fillers also work with the skin’s natural elasticity to ‘push’ out the existing wrinkles, giving a much smoother, more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are a fantastic alternative to plastic surgery because they give long lasting results without being a permanent commitment and are great value.
Facial fillers such as lip and cheek fillers typically last for 6-12 months but can be longer in some cases. After this time, another treatment will be required to maintain results. The longevity of a filler can be affected by the location being treated (i.e. lip or face) as well as lifestyle factors.
Dermal filler treatment duration is around 20-40 minutes depending on areas treated. The duration of results depends on factors such as genetics, age, lifestyle, skin type and area being treated.

Following treatment with dermal fillers, it is normal to experience slight redness, swelling, itching, and some tenderness around the injection site. This should only last a few days after the procedure (and up to a week after a lip treatment). It is advisable to treat the area carefully and avoid strenuous activities.
A complimentary follow up appointment is advised for 2 weeks post procedure to discuss and review your results.
