Each year collagen naturally disappears from our skin leaving lines, wrinkles and furrows. In addition we also lose volume (a teaspoon of fat each year) from our faces after the age of 25. These Fine Lines & Wrinkles are exacerbated by other factors such as sun exposure, smoking and poor health and lifestyle practices. The natural movement of our faces tends to exaggerate these when we smile or frown.

Fortunately, there are a number of non-surgical, as well as surgical Filler treatments available.
We have over 30 years of Cosmetic Medicine experience and we have been performing Dermal Filler treatments for 20 years, making us one of the first clinics in Australia to perform these treatments in Australia.
Dermal fillers are a simple and effective way to rejuvenate, reshape and boost the natural volume of skin around the face area to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and enhance the natural contours. The treatment involves the application of Dermal Fillers Injections and the ingredients in dermal fillers binds with the water in your skin to restore elasticity and fullness for healthy, natural looking skin.
Dermal Fillers are able to create fuller, luscious lips to accentuate the lip line or create a more defined cupids bow and they are an effective way to take control of lines and wrinkles or enhance the contours of your face.
In the first day or so after your treatment you may experience some redness, swelling and tenderness in the treated areas. These reactions are normal and resolve quickly. It helps to apply a cool compress to the treated areas to relieve swelling and any bruising.
We recommend you avoid strenuous exercise, drinking alcohol and exposure to extremes of hot and cold as it opens up blood vessels and may increase bruising or swelling. During this time we also recommend you avoid the use of cosmetics, moisturisers, and products containing AHAs, BHAs and Retinoid.
We also advise that facials, facial waxing or laser treatments be avoided for 10 to 14 days after treatment. If you have any questions or concerns please call the Clinic to speak with one of our Cosmetic Physicians, Aesthetic Nurses or staff members.
This depends on the Cosmetic Physician and Aesthetic Nurse's assessment, but we usually recommend a Treatment Plan to ensure that that you continuously look your best, and avoid the dramatic and sudden changes to your appearance.
