Dermal Fillers / Cosmetic Fillers

by medically qualified, trained and experienced Cosmetic Doctors.

Dermal fillers or gels are injected under the surface of the skin to plump it up, make it firmer and smooth out lines and wrinkles. In this way they to help reverse the changes associated with ageing.

As your skin ages, it gradually loses its stretch elements (collagen and elastin) and its volume (hyaluronic acid and fat). Hyaluronic acid in the skin is responsible for binding water and keeping skin moist, providing a cushion for the skin. Over time, hylauronic acid loses its moisturizing capabilities resulting in skin that begins to sag and crease.

When dermal fillers or gels are injected under the surface of the skin, your own framework is strengthened and becomes more plumped. Dermal fillers also act to replace volume in facial fat pads and stimulate your body to produce its own collagen. Three to six weeks post-treatment, the area injected slowly builds up collagen and gains more volume. Unwanted lines and wrinkles gradually diminish as the skin thickens.

Dermal fillers are used for:

  • Lip sculpture and definition
  • Filling deep folds between your nose and mouth and at the corners of your mouth
  • Smoothing wrinkles, folds and scars
  • Restoring ‘volume’ in areas of your face – cheeks, under the eyes, along the jaw and temples

Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic carries a range of dermal fillers to suit specific treatment programs and skin needs. We use bio-synthetically produced non-animal products, which contain a substance similar to a natural chemical constituent of the skin, called Hyalauronic acid. These products are far less likely to produce allergic reactions.

All products used at Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic are TGA approved and all our professional staff are trained and experienced in their use.

Patient journey

Before any treatment, you will meet with your Doctor for a consultation to discuss whether this is the right procedure for you. Your Doctor will take a medical history and will ask specific questions. It is important to notify your Doctor if you are pregnant, if you are trying to become pregnant, if you are breastfeeding and also if you are taking any medications. Your Doctor will also discuss with you your motivations and expectations. It will be explained what anti-wrinkle injections can and can’t do for you and what type of results you can expect. Your photograph will be taken from different angles. These photographs are valuable for before and after assessments and long-term reviews.

Possible risks & complications

Some mild bruising may occur. These signs may take 2-3 days to vanish. The corners of the mouth tend to bruise a little more. Transient redness, swelling, itching or discomfort may occur. In the case of a lip augmentation, the swelling can be considerable for a few days.

Occasionally some patients may notice some discoloration at the injection site. Typically, resolution is spontaneous, within one or two days of injection into the skin, and within a week after lip augmentation.
