Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers

Do you feel your face looks tired and saggy? Dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane® are the most effective way to improve facial sagging, short of surgery. They can be gently injected under the skin to restore your lips to a youthful shape, soften lip lines, reduce hollows under your eyes, make facial folds shallower and even enhance your chin.

What’s so great about the Skin Institute’s multi-disciplinary approach is that we can offer patients the whole package – from education, to treatment, to follow up care.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are clear gels made from a hyaluranon, a natural carbohydrate already present in your skin that declines with age. Hyaluranon is a powerful hydrator and helps collagen formation. Dermal fillers physically sculpt the face, enhancing facial contour and reducing folds and wrinkles.

Many women fear looking overdone with dermal filler.  We understand your concerns – we don’t like the unnatural look either.  At Skin Institute we favour the understated, natural look which we achieve through a holistic facial assessment and gradual treatment to restore the natural contours of your face.

What can dermal fillers do for me?

As we age we lose “volume” in our faces due to aging changes in the fat and bone deep under the skin. This leads to the overlying skin forming folds, making us look tired and sad.  Placing dermal filler at key points in the face can restore volume for a refreshed, happier look with reduced jowls and sag. We can also enhance your lips, cheeks, and chin. Dermal fillers are a simple, safe way to improve your look.

Are they suitable for everyone?

Mostly, but as with any medical cosmetic treatment there are some cautions. We advise against pregnant or breast-feeding women having treatment, and we won’t treat clients who have previously had permanent filler, as it can trigger problems. And if you are unwell with a cold or flu, we prefer not to treat until you’ve recovered.

Book a free 30-minute consultation with one of our experienced appearance medicine nurses to find out if dermal fillers are right for you.

Does it hurt and is there any downtime after treatment?

Dermal filler contains a local anesthetic, meaning most people find placement surprisingly comfortable. If you wish we can use numbing cream or even local anesthetic blocks for maximum comfort.

You can expect some redness and swelling, or the possibility of a bruise which may last up to two weeks. Concealer can cover any bruising you may experience while it fades.
