Dermal fillers can be used for both men and women who want to enhance their facial features. This procedure covers corrections such as:
⋅ Reducing signs of ageing on face
⋅ Restoring lost facial volume of youth
The goal of this treatment is to restore your youthful contours, while still maintaining a natural appearance. The volume of the filler used depends on the amount of volume restoration required.
Our qualified physician will go through your medical history, advise the most appropriate way forward and talk through costs, risks and potentials.
The substances in our dermal filler injections are naturally occurring in the body and have been studied for over 20 years. They hold similar safety profiles to prescriptive drugs and are generally safe.
Dermal fillers are generally well tolerated and have few side effects.
Common side effects may include:
⋅ Swelling in the treatment area (usually subsides in 2-3 days)
⋅ Needle bruising (depends on treatment area, eg. your lips tend to bruise more than your cheeks)
Less common side effects may include:
⋅ Dizziness and nausea
⋅ Lumpiness (however usually amenable through massaging)
⋅ Delayed onset of lumps or nodules in the treatment site after 3-6 months. This is generally associated with the inflammatory process and can be managed
Very rare side effects may include:
⋅ Injection of filler into blood vessels
Any treatment carries risks. A full medical history and an initial consultation is required with one of our qualified dental practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
