Dermal Fillers


About Dermal Fillers

As we age, our skin loses fat, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which offer facial volume and support. The bony structure and the muscles also lose volume. Over time, we start to see formation of lines, wrinkles and folds, as well as loss of volume, showing the visible signs of aging. The medicines we use are specifically designed to work within the different layers of the skin to replace or restore facial volume and improve the quality and integrity of your skin. Dermal fillers are non-permanent, putting you in control of the way you look.



What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are made from naturally occurring complex sugars, that are found in your body. They are formulated to discretely fill regions of the body that may have lost structure and show signs of ageing. The effects whilst not permanent, normally last several months before requiring further injections due to volume loss. Dermal fillers can correct many discrete concerns of the body and help improve confidence and presentation.


Why use Dermal Fillers?

If you have noticed areas of your body, particularly your face, have lost volume – dermal fillers may help. If used correctly, they can make subtle and important changes to improve the look and help achieve a more youthful appearance of your skin and structure. As they are minimally invasive and no surgery is required, these treatments offer convenience and are suitable for most patients.


Which areas of the body can Dermal Fillers be used?

Commonly, dermal fillers are injected into the cheeks, under both fine or deep lines/wrinkles, nose, chin, lips and also the hollows under the eyes.


Are there any risks?

As with any procedure there is potential for complications, although with dermal fillers they are rare. More commonly, patients may experience local discomfort, reddening, swelling or bruising. As always, our team will advise you on the complications of these procedures as they are likely to apply to your situation, and for a full list of potential side effects please ask our team when at your appointment.

How much does it cost?

Initial consultations are normally $150, and the procedures are charged per volume of treatment required. If you are beginning treatment you may be entitled to a free initial consultation so please mention this to reception when booking your appointment.
