Dermal Fillers in our Melbourne South Clinics
When you want to add shape or volume to your face or lips (or both), dermal fillers are a safe, fast way to enhance facial aspects. For confidence that comes naturally, we offer dermal fillers in our Casey and Rowville clinics.
When you want healthier, smoother skin, consider boosting your collagen with skin needling, fillers and other treatments at Natural Radiance.
What are Dermal Fillers?
As a person ages, their skin gradually loses volume. This results in a thinner, more aged appearance that many people want to delay. If you’re feeling like your facial features need a boost, consider dermal fillers at our Melbourne South Eastern suburb clinics. Cheek fillers can replace this lost volume with a few gentle injections, for that desirable fresher and more youthful look. For fuller, more defined lips, consider lip enhancement and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
The injectable filler used is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles and restore a smoother appearance. Wrinkle fillers are usually temporary as they are eventually absorbed into the body, so some people may need more than one injection to achieve the desired effect.
How do Cheek & Lips Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers are delivered under the skin’s surface with a very fine needle. Once injected, the gel plumps and lifts the skin to replace collagen loss caused by the natural ageing process, to re-volumise facial features and fight the effects of gravity.
The process doesn’t affect movement and sensation, but your lips and skin will look soft and natural. The effect can last between 6 and 18 months, depending on the location treated and the filler used.
What are the Commonly Treated Areas?
The team of specialists at Natural Radiance can work with you to define a treatment plan that best matches your skin and face. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, as well as to revitalise the skin.
Commonly treated areas include:
- Nose to mouth lines and creases (nasolabial folds)
- Between the eyebrows (glabella lines)
- Eye and temple hollows
- Lips augmentation (to add volume and shape)
How Long does Dermal Filler Treatment Last?
One of the great advantages of dermal fillers at our Rowville and Casey clinics is that effects are long-lasting, but not permanent. The solution used for both lips and cheek fillers is biodegradable, so it naturally disappears in the body.
To ensure an optimal and long-lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-12 months after your initial treatment. The time you can expect your results to last depends on many factors, such as your unique skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age.
Our staff will guide you on the appropriate time for your follow-up appointment.
Does the Treatment Hurt?
Depending on the area, your practitioner may apply or inject a local anaesthetic. Lips augmentation and facial fillers sometimes already contain local anaesthetic which makes the treatment tolerable.
You will have an initial consultation with our doctors to discuss your needs and goals, as well as to answer any questions you may have about how much dermal fillers cost, how to care for them after treatment, etc.
To reduce the chances of bruising for all lips fillers, cheek fillers and other treatments, we recommend avoiding some medications like aspirin, vitamin E and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. Check with our therapists or doctors prior to stopping any regular medication.
There may be some swelling and/or bruising in the days after your treatment. As we sometimes use nerve blocks in our dermal fillers, you may get a numb sensation. If this occurs, avoid hot food and drinks until the feeling returns.
