Wrinkle Fillers Melbourne | instant volume
Young skin is smooth and elastic and contains a large amount of a naturally occurring substance that helps the skin look healthy. As we get older, the ability of the skin to produce this substance decreases and the amount in the skin begins to fall.
As a result, our skin and lips start to lose volume, and our face starts to feel the effects of gravity. Fillers are a natural, non-animal and non-surgical solution for smoothing facial folds and giving the lips a fuller, more sensuous form.

Frequently Asked Questions
Dermal fillers can be placed into two categories:
1. Non-permanent fillers
2. Permanent fillers
The use of non-permanent fillers are for the following reasons:
- Safety: The products are made from natural substances, which make them very safe
- Adjustability: Non-permanent fillers can be dissolved to fine tune results or reverse treatment
Non-permanent fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid which is a naturally occurring substance found throughout the human body. It is essentially a sugar and water molecule.
Dermal fillers are used to volumize various areas on the face. As we age, we lose facial fat as well as collagen and elastin. This can lead to flattening and drooping of the skin causing "wrinkles" and "folds".
Dermal fillers are quite commonly used in combination with anti-wrinkle injections to give optimal results. These two procedures work very well together and improve the longevity of both treatments. Dermal fillers provide an instantaneous result by filling the injection site. The amount of filling or lift is determined by how much product is used and product selection. The results continue to improve as the product draws in moisture over the first 1-2 weeks following treatment. It has also been proven that dermal filler treatments induce the body's own collagen production.
Dermal fillers will last from 6 to 18 months in most cases, depending on what kind of filler is used and where in the face it is placed.
Dermal filler injections are a quick and simple procedure that provides instantaneous results with a minimal amount of discomfort and downtime.
Before treatment commences, numbing cream or a dental block may be used to make the treatment more comfortable. Ice may be used in conjunction with these to minimise bruising and swelling.
Small needles (slightly bigger than an acupuncture needle) will then be used to inject the selected product into the second layer or skin, providing instant volume and lift. The treatment time can vary from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the treatment plan and product selection.
Once the treatment has finished the area will be massaged by hand to help mould the product into the desired shape. Again, ice will be used to reduce bruising and swelling.
After treatment, applying make-up is possible however, it's recommended to avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours post procedure.
Dermal fillers will last from 6-18 months in most cases, depending on what kind of filler is used and where in the face it is placed.
Dermal fillers can be used in most areas around the face. The most common treatment areas are:
- Under eyes
- Jaw line
- Scars to reduce their appearance
- Deep frown lines
Patients can return to regular activities almost immediately after treatment. Avoid rubbing the area, extreme heat or exercise for approximately 48 hours.
Dermal fillers are extremely safe and effective, however the side effects to be aware of are:
Temporary redness, localised tenderness, swelling (this usually take 2-7 days to totally resolve), bruising (this can take up to 2 weeks to resolve, however, makeup can be applied during this period). Small lumps can appear; these will either dissolve on their own within a few weeks or can be dissolved with a specialised product called "hyaluronidase". These injections can also be used to treat asymmetry or over-correction. Infection (this is highly uncommon).
