Dermal Fillers Geelong
Dermal fillers are a range of products that are used to fill out hollows and furrows that are left after facial tissues drop as part of ageing or weight loss.
They are more commonly known for lip filler ‘plumping’, which can give full youthful lips for the younger patient but can also give a very subtle restoration of lip volume in more mature patients.
When judiciously used, a very natural appearance of health and well-being can be achieved.
Dermal Fillers at CRC
The Cosmetic Refinement Clinic has a philosophy of age-appropriate rejuvenation – where ‘less is more’. We offer a wide variety of dermal fillers, each suited to different applications.
We will advise you on which dermal filler is best suited to you at the time of consultation. We use a combination of fillers lasting from 4 to 24 months.
We do not use permanent fillers, as they are associated with a slightly higher risk of long-term complications including infection and granuloma formation (permanent lump formation that can occur even years after administration), which are hard to treat.
Who performs the Dermal Fillers?
The treatment is a non-surgical procedure administered via injection by Dr. Niamh Corduff.
How long does the treatment take?
The procedure usually takes between 30-60 minutes. You will have a follow-up appointment two weeks later that can take up to 30 minutes.
How long do Dermal Fillers last?
The longevity of treatment varies from person to person depending on how quickly your body naturally metabolises (breaks down) the filler.
Generally, the results should last from 9 – 12 months or longer for the heavier fillers.
Are there Dermal Filler side effects?
The injection itself should cause minimal discomfort, however, a local anesthetic cream may be used to help numb the area being treated. While you may experience no side effects at all if you do they are generally temporary and injection-site related. There is a chance you may experience treatment area redness, pain, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising and or itching.
Major complications are extremely rare and usually easily avoided with well-trained practitioners. These will be discussed with you at your consultation.
The majority of people resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
What do Dermal Fillers feel like?
Initially, the filler can be likened to playdough under the skin and can be molded for up to 8 weeks, by which time it will have softened and integrated into the tissues.
