    THE PROCEDURE

    What happens during dermal filler treatment?

    Before your dermal filler treatment, our medical professional injectors will thoroughly cleanse your face before applying ice to numb the treatment area. The dermal fillers we use at Cosmos Aesthetics have a local anaesthetic in them which minimises discomfort during the procedure. Immediately after your dermal filler treatment, they will apply pressure to the treatment area with gauze.

    You may experience some swelling, redness and bruising but this will usually resolve itself within 48 hours.

    The treatment areas Cosmos Aesthetics uses dermal fillers include:

    You can have multiple areas of your face treated in the one procedure during this non-surgical treatment. We can also use dermal fillers to treat depressed acne scars and to reshape your nose.

    What brands of dermal filler do you use?

    In Australia it’s against the law to state which dermal filler brands we use. Classified as prescription medicine, only doctors can prescribe dermal fillers. This is why you must have a consultation to ensure dermal fillers are appropriate for your face.

    At Cosmos Aesthetics, we use high quality Dermal Fillers. They’re a smooth product, allowing for greater control and natural results. We have five different types of preparations, allowing for effective treatments on different areas of the face. Dermal fillers are composed of a naturally occurring substance in the body that is also soluble. This means that should too many mL’s of dermal fillers are used, or you don’t like the results, they can be dissolved using hyaluronidase and the treatment area can be corrected with ease.

    The dermal fillers we use have a built-in local anaesthetic allowing for a quicker, more comfortable treatment with less swelling. At Cosmos Aesthetics, all medical professional injectors are fully trained and qualified in injecting Dermal Fillers.

    How much is dermal filler treatment?

    At your initial consultation, your treating medical professional will discuss what outcomes you’d like from the dermal filler treatment. This consultation is between $120 and $330, redeemable upon treatment. They’ll then determine the areas and extent of treatment with you. Cosmos Aesthetics prices start at $350 with discounts offered for additional mL’s of dermal filler. For more pricing details, please visit our pricing page.

    OUR EXPERIENCE

    How to choose a dermal filler clinician

    With so many clinics providing dermal filler treatments, it can be hard to figure out who to choose. At Cosmos Aesthetics, all our medical professional injectors are specially trained in performing injectable treatments. One medical professional has been appointed as an Allergan National Trainer (a prestigious title held by less than 20 doctors nationwide).

    We treat many interstate and overseas patients each year at Cosmos Aesthetics and have special procedures in place for those travelling to our clinics for treatment. For travelling patients, please send us images of the areas you wish to have treated, which Cosmos Aesthetics location you’d like treatment at, and where you’re located in the description. Our staff can then include all the appropriate information including pricing for travelling patients as part of your personalised quote.

    To help you decide which clinic to have dermal filler treatments at we suggest you:

    • Choose a reputable clinic with a good track record of results: A clinic should always have a website and a professional social media, along with the names of the injectable nurses and any doctors responsible for dermal filler treatments. Before and after photos of the injectors work, and results achieved should also be included to view. In Australia you are able to cross check the names of doctors and nurses on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) register to ensure they are qualified and registered.
    • Experience: We recommend you choose an injecting clinic with many years of experience, and an injector who you feel comfortable and supported by. At Cosmos Aesthetics, our team of specialist registered nurse cosmetic injectors and doctors are highly trained, talented, and passionate about delivering beautiful dermal filler results.
    • Before and after photos and videos: Clinics with a good reputation will include numerous before and after photos of actual patients. When you assess these photos, you should be checking to see if the results are similar to your cosmetic goals. Browsing through social media posts will also give you insights into the actual results the clinic achieves.

    How do dermal fillers work?

    Dermal fillers can rejuvenate and reshape your face without having to undergo surgery. The dermal fillers we use at Cosmos Aesthetics have an active ingredient called hyaluronic acid. As you get older, the natural hyaluronic acid decreases resulting in a loss of volume in your face which can make you look older than you feel. After dermal filler treatment, your skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid is boosted resulting in:

    • Less facial lines and wrinkles
    • Fuller lips and cheeks
    • Less droopy skin
    • A rejuvenated and fresher looking face.

    Dermal fillers, sometimes referred to as ‘liquid facelifts’, are a non-surgical method that some individuals choose for facial enhancement.

    What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

    Cosmos Aesthetics wants you to feel good about the way you look. Dermal filler treatment can help if you:

    • Look older than you feel
    • Want to reduce your facial wrinkles and lines
    • Have deep lines and troughs
    • Want to add volume to your cheeks that have hollowed out
    • Have baggy or sunken eyes
    • Want to improve your lip volume
    • Have a downward turning mouth with jowls

    Dermal filler treatments are a ‘walk-in, walk-out’ non-surgical procedure with no down-time. Dermal fillers may provide immediate visible effects, such as fuller lips and a smoother skin appearance.

    Can dermal fillers slow down the ageing process?

    Dermal fillers may help in managing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. Cosmos Aesthetics treats patients with dermal fillers as a preventative anti-ageing treatment. While anyone over 18 years of age can have dermal filler treatment, when you first get them is up to you. At your consultation with our medical professional injectors, they will recommend the best way to meet your aesthetic goals.

    We can address specific concerns with dermal filler treatment such as:

    • Frown lines
    • Under eye bags
    • Thin lips

    Dermal filler treatment is an effective way to reduce the visible signs of ageing, without having surgery.

    Where are dermal fillers used?

    Dermal filler injections are used in common areas that include:

    • Lips, chin and cheek
    • Jowls next to your mouth
    • Nasolabial lines (the lines that are next to your mouth)
    • Frown lines between your eyebrows

    Other areas we can treat include tear troughs (under eye bags), non-surgical nose augmentation and a brow lift.

    How often should I have dermal filler treatments?

    While most dermal fillers last between 9 months and 2 years, the length of time they last will also depends on where you had the treatment and your expectations. If you’re having dermal filler treatment for the first time, you may need to have regular treatment every few months before you reach your aesthetic goals. After this, we suggest you schedule dermal filler treatments every 6 to 12 months.

    Can I have dermal filler treatment if I’m breastfeeding or pregnant?

    If you’re breastfeeding or pregnant, we don’t recommend you have dermal filler treatment.

    Can I have other treatments with dermal fillers?

    For optimal results, Cosmos Aesthetics patients often have dermal filler treatment in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections. As an anti-ageing strategy, dermal fillers provide volume and shape to your face while anti-wrinkle injections reduce fine lines and deep wrinkles.

    Do dermal fillers have any side effects?

    After your dermal filler treatment, you may experience some swelling at the injection sites. Other temporary side effects that usually resolve within 24 to 48 hours include:

    • Pain
    • Lumps and/or bumps
    • Redness at the injection site
    • Bruising
    • Discolouration
    • Itching

    In rare cases, adverse reactions can occur that include:

    • Pain that becomes worse
    • Swelling that doesn’t subside
    • Hot and red skin

    If you experience any of the above symptoms, you should call us immediately.

    What post-treatment care should I take after dermal filler treatment?

    Dermal filler treatment can be performed during your lunch break, after work or at the start of your weekend. As a walk in, walk out procedure, you can go back to your daily routine straight after the dermal filler treatment. You may experience slight redness, bruising, swelling and tenderness in the treatment areas. Your medical professional will advise any specific issues to take care of. After your dermal filler treatment, to avoid sun damage it’s important to protect your skin by using a high SPF sunscreen.

    If you’re experiencing swelling or tenderness, apply a cool compress for 10 minutes every hour. Don’t apply the ice or cool compress directly on your skin; wrap it in a small towel. Avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours after hour dermal filler treatment can help reduce any swelling or tenderness.

    To reduce any swelling the next day, it’s a good idea to avoid alcohol and smoking for 24 hours after your dermal filler treatment. If you’ve had nose filler dermal treatment, avoid wearing glasses for 24 hours after your injections.

    How long do dermal fillers last?

    Depending on the placement on your face, dermal fillers can last anywhere between 6 – 24 months. This timeframe will vary from patient to patient. As a guide, more active areas (such as lips) will break down the product at a quicker rate, whereas less active areas (such as the cheeks) last for longer periods of time.

    Questions you must ask before having dermal fillers

    To ensure you get the optimal dermal filler treatment, we suggest you ask the following questions:

    • Does the clinic include a consultation where you can explain what type of treatment you’d like and which areas you’d like to have treated?
    • Which medical professional will be performing your dermal filler treatment? What is their experience, training and qualifications?
    • Which brands of dermal filler treatment do they use? They’ll be able to tell you this during your consultation.
    • How many clients have they treated with dermal fillers?
    • What COVID-19 precautions has the clinic established? Does the clinic have sterile procedures for their facilities and equipment?
    • Will there be onsite emergency support and medical supervision if the dermal filler treatment doesn’t go as expected?
    • Does the medical professional know how to reverse dermal filler treatment by using hyaluronidase?
    • Does the clinic provide adequate post dermal filler treatment instructions?
