Collagen stimulating fillers restore volume loss in cheeks, lips, chin and other facial areas, and improve skin quality and texture, resulting in a more natural look.
Enhance your natural features
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.
Dermal fillers are ideal for:
Wrinkles and fine lines
Deep creases and folds
Scars and uneven skin
Volume loss in the face
Contouring the jaw line
Benefits of dermal fillers
Enhance facial contours
Dermal fillers can effectively accentuate and refine facial contours, allowing you to achieve a more sculpted and symmetrical appearance.
Rejuvenate your skin
Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds, and promote overall skin rejuvenation by stimulating collagen production.
Dermal fillers restore lost volume in cheeks, lips, chin, jaw and more, creating a refreshed appearance without the need for surgery.

How do dermal fillers work?
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 centres who achieve natural-looking results in restoring a more youthful appearance to your face and enhancing your natural features.

It is important that your skin is clear of rashes, infections and cold sores. If you are prone to cold sore outbreaks, it is advisable that you mention this to your 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 after the treatment. 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.
What you do after your treatment and how you take care of your skin is very important.
- Allow your skin to rest and do not apply make-up for at least an hour.
- You can prevent or treat swelling with cold compresses or ice packs.
- Avoid using saunas and steam baths for two weeks after treatment.
- Avoid sun exposure, cold and pressure of any kind on the treated areas.
- If palpable nodules form, massage the affected areas to distribute the material.
- It is normal to feel a firmness in the injected area for the first few days. Over time, the area will soften to leave a natural looking result.
- The area may be gently washed after a few hours. Avoid scrubbing or rubbing.
- Immediately report any worsening or persistent side effects to your doctor.
Following pre- and post-treatment care guidelines will help optimise your results. Your clinician will walk you through any contraindications or side-effects that might impact you.
Some risks associated with dermal filler treatment include:
• Bleeding, pain or discomfort during and after the treatment.
• Tenderness, bruising and swelling for up to two weeks.
• Feeling faint during the procedure.
• An uneven result or filler lumps which may require correction.
Uncommon side effects include:
• Permanent granuloma or nodule formation that may require surgical correction and may be untreatable. This is rare with temporary fillers.
• Necrosis or ulceration of the skin.
• Allergic reaction or anaphylaxis.
• Prolonged redness, pustule or scar formation at the injection sites.
• Infection and subsequent scarring.
• Nerve damage and subsequent numbness or weakness.
• Loss of vision or blockage of the tear duct.

Frequently asked questions
What are the side effects of dermal fillers?
It is not uncommon to have bruising at injection sites for up to a week following treatment with dermal fillers. 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.
What should I be aware of before receiving dermal fillers?
It is important that your skin is clear of rashes, infections or cold sores prior to your dermal filler treatment. 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.
What type of dermal fillers are used?
Most filling material is now sourced from naturally occurring substances found in the human body. They are classified as temporary, semi-permanent or permanent.
Our dermal filler products 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 dermal 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, your dermal clinician 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.
Are dermal fillers better than anti-wrinkle injections?
Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are different procedures that treat different concerns. Dermal fillers restore lost volume with the injection of a liquid substance under the skin, while anti-wrinkle injections administer a neurotoxin to stabilise muscle movement and this smooth out wrinkles. You should speak with your doctor or dermal clinician about which injectable treatment is right for you.
Who will perform my dermal fillers procedure?
Dermal fillers are strictly delivered by our experienced team of dermal clinicians, including Aesthetic Doctors and degree-certified Aesthetic Nurses and Dermal Therapists. Our team hold certifications specifically focused in aesthetic medicine and are very experienced in delivering these treatments, with patient safety and expectations as our top priority. As your treatment is delivered in a medical facility, we can address any unlikely complications that may arise.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Depending on the product used, dermal fillers usually last between 6-12 months, extending up to 18 months with more robust products. Regular maintenance treatments can help prolong the results of your dermal fillers and lengthen the time required between treatments.
