Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are made up of a complex sugar chain, which are chemically identical to what is found in the skin. Dermal fillers are found naturally in the body where the main role is to attract water and provide hydration to the skin. They are designed to resemble the body’s own natural hydration and can help revitalise your facial features.

What do they do?

  • Enhance facial volume and restore facial contours that have weakened with time
  • Soften lines and wrinkles
  • Correct asymmetries and restore facial balance
  • Restore fullness to lips

How much do they cost?

Dermal fillers come in a range of products to treat various conditions and areas. Prices range from $350–$550 per ml.

Ask us about our Dermal Filler packages offered throughout the year.

What areas do they treat?

  • Facial Contouring including Cheek Re-volumisation, Jawline and Lower Face Heaviness
  • Lip Hydration and Restoration
  • Surgical and Acne Scars
  • Facial Lines and Wrinkles
  • Under Eyes Hollows (or Tear Troughs)
  • Deep Lines & Wrinkles

How long do results last?

As a general rule soft dermal fillers such as treatment in the lips and around the eyes tend to last approximately 6-9 months. Thicker dermal fillers for treatment of cheeks tend to last approximately 9-12 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long until you see results?
A: You should see the result of dermal filler the same day. There may be some swelling and bruising, which will subside 7-10 days after treatment.
Q: Do Dermal Fillers hurt?
A: Patients have the option to have topical numbing cream or local anaesthetic injected to numb the area that is being treated. The topical cream takes 30 minutes to take affect whereas the local anaesthetic injection is immediate.
Q: Is there any downtime?
A: There may potentially be some slight redness, swelling and bruising in the treated area. If this occurs it can be covered with make-up and will generally resolve in 7-10 days.
