Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are hydrophilic (water absorbing). They are injected under the skin to treat volume loss or enhance facial features. These fillers naturally integrate into the skin, making them a safe treatment. They can last between 12 to 18 months depending on the filler type and the amount used.
Dermal fillers can be used for the following areas:
Dermal fillers involve using a fine needle to inject filler into the skin. This filler achieves a lifted and smoothed effect, restoring lost volume while hydrating the skin. As the filler dissolves over time, collagen production is also stimulated, helping to bring about long-term improvements in skin quality.
Our cosmetic doctor will first assess your facial anatomy and discuss your desired results. A treatment plan will be custom designed based on your concerns, goals, budget and timeframe. The type and the amount of dermal filler required can range depending on the condition of the skin and the results you wish to achieve.
We use TGA approved dermal filler which is mixed with a local anaesthetic, rendering the procedure virtually painless. All dermal fillers treatments are conducted in a sterile environment. The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes, is safe, and does not leave any scars.
The attending doctor may request that you bring in photographs of yourself from 10 years ago. This will enable them to assess the ageing that’s taken place and recommend suitable treatments that are tailored to your skin.

Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injection containing a filler substance that volumises and hydrates the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Dermal filler injectables can be used for anti-aging purposes as well as to better define certain facial features, i.e. enhance or increase volume of thin lips with lip fillers, or restore facial volume in individuals with sunken cheeks or loss of lower face volume.
The longevity of dermal fillers varies depending on the patient’s lifestyle and physical characteristics, as well as the treatment area. Absorption is typically faster in areas that are more affected by muscle movement such as the mouth. Our doctor will advise you on how long your dermal fillers should last depending on factors such as treatment area, age and lifestyle.
Immediately after treatment, patients will notice a glowing effect. The final outcome will take place after 2-3 weeks once the fillers have integrated uniformly with your skin, resulting in a more lifted and youthful appearance. After this time, our doctor will conduct a review to assess the results and ensure your goals have been met.
Adverse effects that may occur with this treatment include:
Different types of dermal fillers can be administered in different areas. Common areas of concern that may benefit from fillers include the forehead, eye area, nose, cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, chin and hands.
Doctors have years of medical training that helps them to understand anatomy and react appropriately if any issues arise. They can be trusted to carry out your treatment in a sterile environment and ensure your goals are achieved safely and effectively.
