Dermal fillers come in a variety of materials and are used to subtly improve the appearance of the ageing face by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles as well as replacing some of the volume loss that occurs as we lose fat from various parts of our face as we age. Dermal fillers can be used in areas where anti-wrinkle injections have effectively treated the “active” wrinkles but where resting wrinkles remain. These include the brow, crow’s feet around the eyes, creases around the mouth and nose, and lines around the forehead, lips and jaw. We are one of the very few practices to use collagen stimulating fillers to not only restore volume loss but also improve skin quality and texture, resulting in a more natural look and avoiding the "puffy, overfilled face look".
If you have hollowness in your cheeks, under-eyes, chin or jaw, it could be a result of lost tissue and fat volume. Dermal fillers, which are made from naturally occurring substances found in the human body, help to replace that lost volume. Dermal fillers are strictly administered by medical professionals in our centre who achieve great results in restoring a more youthful appearance to your face and enhancing your natural features.
Following pre and post-treatment care guidelines will help optimise your results. Our Aesthetic Doctors will walk you through any contraindications or side-effects that might affect you, and you can learn more here.
Skin Booster (also known as micro-filler) hydrates and smooths the skin with deeper injections of hyaluronic acid. This method hydrates from the inside out to reverse the ageing process and results in plumper, brighter and younger looking skin.
In young skin, Skin Booster can give an airbrushed or filtered appearance. In older skin, Skin Booster can reduce the appearance of skin laxity and crepe-like skin.
The Skin Booster treatment is available only at our centre in Terrigal, NSW.
It is not uncommon to have bruising at injection sites for up to a week following treatment. This can be alleviated using ice packs and topical arnica in the post-injection period. We advise all our patients to undergo 20 minutes of red light treatment (available at our centre) immediately afterwards, which helps decrease the bruising and promotes collagen remodelling.
A temporary sensational swelling can last anywhere between 12 hours to three days post-filler treatment. Most people return to work and their normal routine the next morning after treatment. It is our practice to review our patients at two weeks post-treatment for further product placement if desired. A reversal agent can be used to alleviate swelling.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can produce excellent results for a period of six months (for the more superficial fillers) and up to 12 months (for the deeper, more robust fillers) post-injection treatment.
It is important that your skin is clear of rashes, infections or cold sores. If you are prone to cold sore outbreaks it is advisable that you mention this to the doctor at the time of your initial consult and commence a course of anti-viral medication a week prior to your appointment and for a week afterwards.
If you are taking any medications or supplements that promote bruising (and are not medically necessary), stop them at least two weeks prior to your appointment. Do not stop any medications without consulting your GP first.
Most filling material is now sourced from naturally occurring substances found in the human body. They are classified as temporary, semi-permanent or permanent.
The products we use are from reputable companies based in Australia, FDA approved, used extensively in Europe and the USA, and incorporate either hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite.
The choice of filler depends on the area to be treated, the depth of filling required, the effect desired, and the characteristics individual to each patient’s face. We advise a step by step, minimalistic, gradual approach to achieve subtle and beautiful results over time.
As part of your initial skin consultation, our Aesthetic Doctors will take photos of your face and discuss all treatment options regarding dermal fillers individualised to your facial shape, symmetry, skin type and age. We invite all patients to return for a review after two weeks in case there is a need for a top up of filler, as we prefer to be conservative in the first treatment to achieve natural results.
