What Are Dermal Fillers?

As we age, our face changes in many ways. The skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag, whereas our cheeks and other parts of our face become less plump and voluminous. If you want to prevent that and maintain the youthful appearance no matter what, dermal fillers are the right choice for you. These are substances injected into the skin, in order to correct a variety of skin issues such as fine lines and wrinkles. They are designed to support and correct the underlying facial structures and rejuvenate the patient’s appearance.

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure which can help fight the results of age-induced skin changes. At Skinnovation Laser Clinic, we use high quality dermal fillers to ensure the results will last. So, if you have any questions or you want to know whether you are the right candidate for this treatment, make sure to book a free consultation with our Cosmetic Injector. He will assess your needs and determine the best treatment plan for maximum results.


Botox vs. Dermal Fillers

Even though both Botox and dermal fillers are popular cosmetic treatments given through injection to give your skin a youthful appearance, the truth is that these radically differ from one another. Botox contains purified bacteria that freeze the muscles by blocking nerve signals in them. This is an effective way to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial movement. This means that Botox only works on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement – not on those caused by sagging or loss of plumpness in the face. Botox isn’t a permanent treatment, its effects wear off after 3 to 4 months.

Dermal fillers are substances designed to add more volume and fullness to your skin. These are injected beneath the surface of the skin and often contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, which already exists in your body and adds plumpness to the skin, and polylactic acid which stimulates the skin to make more collagen. Though these may take time to work, dermal fillers minimise wrinkles caused by sagging or loss of plumpness. Similarly to anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers aren’t permanent either. They typically last between 6 and 24 months, depending on the area of the face and the type of dermal fillers you choose.


About The Procedure

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin with a fine needle. These can be used almost anywhere on the face where you wish to restore volume lost with age, or minimise the wrinkles and fine lines that appeared over the years. Based on your specific facial features, we at Skinnovation Laser Clinic can inject cosmetic filler in your lips, lip lines, temples, marionette lines, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and even your jawline. Different types of dermal fillers are used to plump up thinning lips, soften the look of pronounced scars, fill in shallow areas on the face, and treat many other signs of aging.

Dermal fillers in Sydney are safe and, as the fillers contain a local anaesthetic, the procedure is relatively painless. Based on the patient’s specific needs, we can also utilise ice or topical anaesthetic to further numb the area. 


Who Is the Right Candidate For Dermal Fillers?

Patients of all skin tones, types, and textures, and colours are more than welcome to try our dermal fillers, and this is particularly true for those who are troubled by a loss of volume in their face. Losing facial volume and fullness occurs for a number of reasons, from extreme weight loss to ageing over the years. This type of cosmetic filler is designed to replenish volume and plump up your face in the blink of an eye.  Book a free consultation with one of our specialists and we’ll discuss how dermal fillers are most appropriate for you.


Recovery Period And Results

The recovery period from dermal fillers is minimal, as it is a non-invasive procedure that is almost pain-free. Some patients notice slight swelling and redness around the treated area, but it will subside within the first few hours after the procedure. Slight bruising and bleeding are also quite common, but you don’t have to worry at all because these will fade away very quickly. Allergic reactions to dermal fillers are extremely rare, however, in case you suffer from certain allergies, be sure to tell us about them before the treatment.

Depending on the particular type of dermal fillers, the results can vary and last between six months and two years. On the cheeks, jawline, and other bigger parts of the face which require larger amounts of filler, the results can last up to two years. The smaller amounts of cosmetic filler used for the area around the lips can deliver results that can last between six to nine months. For long-term results, you should schedule multiple treatments that will keep your skin refreshed and rejuvenated over time.
