What is a Dermal Filler?
Dermal Fillers are products that are designed to contour, create volume, fill lines and hydrate the skin. Our product range consists of dermal fillers for the treatment of lips, facial lines, wrinkles and facial folds. The results are immediate.
What is an Anti-Wrinkle Treatment?
An anti-wrinkle treatment is designed to relax muscles that cause facial expression. Once the muscle is relaxed the overlying wrinkles will soften and reduce. This is a particularly popular treatment in the frown area.
How long will the results last?
Dermal Fillers can last anywhere from 6-12 months. With one re-treatment; the results can last up to 18 months.
An Anti-Wrinkle treatment can last up to 4 months from one treatment.
Does the treatment hurt?
Dermal Filler and Anti-Wrinkle treatments are administered by a qualified Health Care Professional in Australia. You may experience some discomfort, however this can be minimized by local anaesthetic and topical creams. You can discuss this with your practitioner prior to the treatment.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effects are redness, tenderness and swelling after the treatment which usually subsides within 2-3 days. Occasional bruising can occur which can be covered by make-up.
