Healthy skin is fundamental to natural beauty. Whether we like it or not, as we age, so does our skin. Dermal Fillers are the safest, most effective aging prevention solution on the market today. They are designed to add volume and create an instantly lifted, firmer and contoured appearance. Australian Laser & Skin Clinics offers a variety of cost-effective options that create natural to dramatic volume. Both women and men come to our Melbourne clinics, seeking dermal lip, under eye and cheek fillers to restore fullness and hydration. We can even treat the backs of the hands where the skin may be losing firmness. Results can last anywhere from six to twenty-four months and treatments are completely safe, requiring minimal downtime with very few side effects.
At Australian Laser & Skin Clinics, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands as all of our staff are medically trained and certified. Unlike many other cosmetic clinics, we provide experienced cosmetic nurses to ensure your comfort at every stage of the treatment. Our registered nurses work alongside skilled doctors and dermal clinicians to deliver a smooth and pleasant experience as well as cosmetic treatments you can trust. With locations in the CBD and across Melbourne, we provide you with the convenience of dermal fillers no matter where you are.
Dermal Fillers can help revitalise your appearance, smoothing out wrinkles and giving your face a fresh and energetic look. These are the areas that people most often come to us seeking treatment for:
Filler injections can be highly effective when it comes to softening and restoring youthful contours to the mouth area and lips. They hydrate and fill out lips that are impacted by the loss of collagen, resulting in an attractive plump appearance.
Our lip filler injections can be used to enhance the ‘Cupid’s bow’ (the curve of the lip between nasolabial folds), strengthen the vermillion border (the border around the lips), and soften vertical lip lines on the upper lip. Treating them with dermal lip fillers can also provide them with essential hydration, as well as increasing their volume and enhancing definition.
In addition to enhancement with dermal lip fillers, we can also provide treatments for the surrounding areas of the mouth, helping to lessen the appearance of wrinkles such as marionette lines.
Throughout their lives, many people wonder how to get rid of bags under eyes. Fortunately, the treatment is an excellent way to smooth out and freshen up the under eye area. Ageing typically thins the volume of skin around the eyes, which results in the appearance of shadowing and the formation of lines and wrinkles. This can make people look older and more tired than they really are. Under eye fillers can help to soften the tear troughs underneath the eyes, which in turn can help rejuvenate your overall appearance.
The cheeks are a regular area for dermal filler treatment because they typically lose volume over time. This occurs due to gravitational changes experienced by their core fat pads. Dermal cheek fillers restore volume to the cheeks and offer support to the gravity-affected features of the lower face.
The dermal cheek fillers and lip enhancement process involves injecting a stabilised hyaluronic acid based gel, a natural skin component that provides the area being treated with volume and hydration. After the injection, the gel binds with the water in your skin and gives natural volume to smooth wrinkles. The gel also blends with adjoining tissues and allows other nutritive elements, like oxygen, glucose and hormones, to pass between fragments of the gel. The result is instantly fuller, revitalised and plumper skin.
Treatment will provide immediate effect after a single session. The treated area should be gently massaged after injections. This helps the gel to seamlessly blend into the surrounding tissue. One session, administered in our Melbourne clinics by a registered nurse, takes about thirty minutes and the results are immediate. Maintenance treatments are required every six to twenty-four months, and a customised treatment plan by one of our clinicians or registered nurses can be designed to meet your requirements.
It is normal to experience slight redness and swelling near the injection site. There may also be some other minor side effects, such as slight pain or tenderness and some itching in that same area. The skin returns to normal one to two days after skin treatments such as under eye or cheek fillers, and up to a week for lip treatments.
Dermal Filler treatments are performed at all of our state-of-the-art Melbourne clinics. While prices will range depending on the area and the extent of treatment required, all of our treatments offer a cost-effective solution.
The Swedish Dermal Filler that we use is the first non-animal injectable hyaluronic acid to gain approval for aesthetic use. Our industry-standard product adds to the skin’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid and has been successfully used worldwide since 1996. As it is free from animal substances and toxins, the risk of transmitting disease is completely eliminated. Treatment is thoroughly sterilised, can commence immediately, and due to its natural design, causes minimal disturbance to other tissue. The reasonable cost has seen it become one of the most popular natural beauty enhancements available.
The skin’s ability to counter the effects of time, wind, weather and environmental stresses owes much to hyaluronic acid, a polysaccharide that naturally exists in all life and is identical in all species and tissues. Its most important function is to bind water and lubricate movable parts of the body, such as joints and muscles. So far, more than twenty-seven million people all over the world have been treated with hyaluronic acid based products.
The dermal filler we use has the exclusive ability of maintaining the initial volume for long-lasting effectiveness. As the gel breaks down, water takes its place. The less concentrated that the gel becomes, the more water is able to bind. When it is totally broken down and reabsorbed, the gel disappears from the body without leaving any foreign implant or waste. For wrinkle or facial contouring treatments, such as cheek fillers, most patients choose to have a follow-up treatment six to twelve months after the initial treatment. After a lip enhancement procedure, a follow-up appointment is usually required about six months later. It is always the patient’s choice whether to continue or change the combination of treatment.
Dermal Fillers are very safe and can be performed as often as you like, with minimal side effects. This product gives you an all-important authority to be in charge of your looks.
Most commonly, dermal lip fillers are used to increase the volume and size of lips and surrounding contours. However, there are other parts of the face and body which can benefit from the use of Dermal Fillers for both men and women, including:
Australian Laser & Skin Clinics uses the most scientifically documented HA based dermal filler in the world, with extensive studies that support its safety and effectiveness. Our Dermal Fillers have been used in over ten million treatments worldwide during the last twelve years. The ingredients replicate the body’s own hyaluronic acid, which reduces the risk of allergic reaction and complications, making it completely safe to use. In addition, all of our lip, cheek and under eye filler treatments are administered by qualified nurses or doctors, ensuring that you are always being looked after by a trained medical professional at Australian Skin & Laser Clinics.
One of the benefits of Dermal Fillers is that the effects are long-lasting, but not permanent. The duration will depend on a number of factors such as:
Depending on the individual, the area and the type of filler being used, follow-up treatments are normally recommended around every six to twenty-four months, making this a highly cost-effective treatment.
During a treatment in one of our Melbourne clinics – located throughout the suburbs, including in Brighton, Oakleigh, South Yarra, Hillside, Thomastown, Moonee Ponds and Ringwood – the filler is injected into the area being treated in small amounts using a very fine needle. The process is quick, generally taking about twenty to forty minutes depending on the type selected. Dermal Fillers won’t affect your facial expressions, and the benefits can usually be seen instantly.
Some clients may experience mild discomfort. However, a local anaesthetic is used to provide a more comfortable treatment, especially for sensitive areas such as the lips. Australian Laser & Skin Clinics ensures the most pleasant treatment possible.
Your first step when having a dermal filler consultation is to discuss your treatment expectations with one of our clinicians or registered nurses at your complimentary consultation. After deciding what you wish to achieve and considering your needs, your nurse will suggest which treatment is most suitable for you and inform you of all costs and prices involved. After the consultation, and if you are happy to proceed, you will then consult with our doctor who will complete a script for you, allowing you to proceed with the treatment. We will also assist you in completing a medical history form and a consent form, which is required prior to treatment.
Post-dermal filler treatment can result in minor reactions including:
The reactions are mild to moderate and will usually disappear in no more than four to five days depending on the individual. Some people may be more sensitive than others, so the recovery is individual. It is best to treat the area with care and try not to do any activities that may impact the area causing aggravation.
