2. Treatment Procedure: Dermal filler injections are administered directly into targeted areas of the human face. The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes, however also plan to be in clinic a little longer than expected (at least 15minutes more). We don’t like to rush your treatments.

3. Results: You’ll notice immediate improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, and lost volume. It is important to note that your results will develop over a 2 to 6 week period.

4. Downtime: You can resume your daily activities almost immediately however be prepared to have some downtime. Bruising can occur and there may be swelling. We recommend planning treatment when you are about to have some days off.

This longevity ensures that you can enjoy the benefits of your treatment for an extended period. It is important to note that longevity is controlled by how your body will metabolise the filler and whether or not previous treatments have been performed.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment in Adelaide that are used to restore volume, smooth lines, and enhance facial contours. They are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin to add volume, soften wrinkles, and rejuvenate the appearance of the face. These fillers are typically made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps maintain hydration and elasticity in the skin.

At our Adelaide clinic, the procedure involves a highly experienced nurse injecting the filler into specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth, to achieve the desired aesthetic results.

Dermal fillers can help address various concerns, including:

  1. Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Fillers can smooth out lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.
  2. Lost Volume: Aging can cause the face to lose volume, resulting in hollowed cheeks and temples. Dermal fillers can restore volume and enhance facial contours.
  3. Lip Enhancement: Fillers can add volume and definition to the lips, creating a fuller, more youthful appearance.
  4. Scar Correction: Certain fillers can be used to improve the appearance of scars, such as acne scars or indentations.

 

You should be aware that the effects of dermal fillers are temporary and typically last several months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle. Repeat treatments are often necessary to maintain results over time.

It’s important to seek treatment from a qualified healthcare professional who is experienced in administering dermal fillers – such as Cosmetic Injectables Adelaide. In Australia, dermal fillers are regulated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), and practitioners must adhere to strict guidelines to ensure safety and efficacy. Patients should also be aware of the risks and potential side effects associated with dermal filler injections, which may include bruising, swelling, and infection which we provide more details on below. 

For more information on dermal fillers and regulatory guidelines in Australia, you can refer to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) website here and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) website here.

Risks & Possible Side Effects

While dermal fillers are generally safe, it’s essential to be aware of potential risks and side effects.

1. Redness and Swelling: Mild redness and swelling at the injection site are common but typically subside within a few days.

2. Bruising: Some bruising may occur, but it can be concealed with makeup and usually fades quickly. Please be aware that if you do not wear makeup then your bruise will be more visible.

3. Allergic Reactions: Although rare, allergic reactions to dermal fillers can happen. Be sure to inform your practitioner of any allergies during your consultation.

4. Infection: Proper aftercare and a sterile environment can minimize the risk of infection.

5. Nodules or Lumps: In some cases, small nodules or lumps may form, but they can often be massaged or dissolved with follow-up treatments. Nodules, Lumps and granulomas are further explained during your consultation.

6. Vessel Occlusion: This is when some of the dermal filler has blocked one of your blood vessels in the area being treated. Although rare this is an urgent complication that needs immediate attention. This is further explained during your consultation.

Post Dermal or Lip Filler Treatment Care

To maximise the benefits of your dermal filler treatment, adhere to these post-treatment care guidelines:

1. Avoid Strenuous Activity: For the first 24 hours, refrain from vigorous exercise or activities that may increase blood flow to the treated areas.

2. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to aid the healing process and maintain skin hydration.

3. Avoid Alcohol and Blood Thinners: These can increase the risk of bruising, so avoid them for a few days after treatment.

4. Gentle Skincare: Be gentle when cleansing your face and apply sunscreen daily to protect your skin.
