Fillers

WHAT IS A DERMAL FILLER?

A filler is a gel made up of hyaluronic acid (that is a naturally occurring substance in your skin) that is injected under the skin to remove wrinkles and folds instantly and add volume to your face and lips.  

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT AFTER A FILLER TREATMENT?

Fillers can give you a natural, instant facial rejuvenation without going through the trauma and pain of plastic surgery.  The procedure lasts less than an hour and you can go back to work directly after the procedure.

ARE THERE SIDE-EFFECTS?

Because fillers are made up from Hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in the skin, the side effects are minimal.  Fillers are administered by injection with a needle or cannula.  You may experience pain with the injection, but the doctor normally applies a local anaesthetic beforehand which minimises the pain at the injection site.  There is a risk of bruising and swelling, especially if you are using blood thinning agents.  This generally subsides within a week.  This should be taken into consideration when you book your appointment.

WILL I SEE IMMEDIATE RESULTS AND HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?

The effect of the filler is instantaneous.  The effect of a filler can last from 9 to 12 months (or longer) depending on various factors.

WHICH FILLERS ARE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?

We only recommend fillers that are FDA approved, meaning their efficacy and safety have been demonstrated by reliable clinical studies.
