Dermal Filler Treatments Canberra

As we age, our skin loses natural fat pads, collagen, and bone tissue. This contributes to volume loss in the face and a sunken appearance associated with the aging process. If you are looking for an effective solution to restore lost volume and achieve a restful, youthful appearance, dermal fillers are the ideal treatment. Today's high-tech fillers have a smooth texture, giving the injector greater control and the ability to create natural-looking results. Our advanced dermal fillers come in five different levels of molecular weight and density. This allows for a highly customised approach to facial contouring.

    Am I a candidate for dermal fillers?

    If you’re starting to notice mild to moderate volume loss and skin sagging, you may be a good candidate for dermal fillers. Also, if you’d like to improve the shape of your nose or achieve a more chiselled jawline, fillers can be a great non-surgical option. Women and men alike can benefit from dermal fillers. However, keep in mind that patients with considerable skin sagging and aging may require surgery to produce more dramatic and satisfactory results.

    How do I prepare for dermal fillers?

    Before a dermal filler treatment, there are a number of things that you should do to prepare. The most important thing is to avoid any potential blood thinners for around a week before treatment. This includes alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, omega-3 supplements and vitamin E. If you are prone to cold sores, you may need to speak to your doctor about taking prophylactic medication prior to treatment. Additionally, if you have had a recent COVID-19 vaccination, you should wait at least two weeks before scheduling a dermal filler treatment.

    What brands of dermal filler do you use?

    Here in Australia, we are legally unable to state which dermal filler brands we use. As dermal fillers are classified as prescription medicine, only doctors can prescribe dermal fillers. Given this, you must have a consultation with us prior to treatment to ensure that dermal fillers are an appropriate treatment for you.

    At Cosmos Aesthetics Canberra, we use high-quality dermal fillers from a range of well-trusted brands. If you’d like to learn more, our cosmetic injectors can talk freely about your options during a consultation.

    Model 01, photo 02, Cosmos Aesthetics, Cosmetic Injections Canberra (Fillers) Can dermal fillers replace surgical procedures?

    As dermal filler techniques are increasingly becoming more sophisticated, patients now have access to highly effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation options. However, cosmetic injectables are not a suitable option for everyone. Patients with excess skin or severe sun damage may require alternative options, such as surgery or laser resurfacing, to achieve their desired results.

    Can dermal fillers slow down the ageing process?

    While dermal fillers cannot completely halt the ageing process, they can prevent lines and volume loss from worsening. In fact, dermal fillers can stimulate the production of collagen, which keeps our skin looking fresh, plump, and youthful.

    At Cosmos Aesthetics, we are seeing an increasing number of patients opt for dermal fillers as a preventative anti-ageing treatment. Although anyone over 18 years old can undergo a dermal filler treatment, the best time to begin treatment will differ for everyone. Ultimately, dermal fillers are an effective way to reduce the visible signs of ageing without the need for surgery.

    Are there any side effects related to dermal fillers?

    Most patients tolerate dermal filler injections exceptionally well, even following many years of use. However, as with any other medical procedure, you can expect some temporary side effects, such as swelling, redness and bruising. These normally resolve after several hours or within a few days.

    It is possible to experience some rarer complications, such as infection or lumps (also known as granulomas). The good news is dermal filler can be instantly dissolved with a special enzyme in the event that the filler needs to be reversed.

    In some extremely rare cases, dermal filler can be accidentally injected into the blood vessels rather than beneath the skin. This can block blood supply and lead to skin death and, in severe cases, blindness. This is why we always stress seeing a highly experienced cosmetic injector who has the training to avoid these complications.

    Can I have other treatments with dermal fillers?

    Many patients opt to combine their dermal fillers with additional non-surgical facial treatments, in particular anti-wrinkle injections. As an anti-ageing strategy, dermal fillers can restore volume and shape to the face, while anti-wrinkle injections minimise the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. You can learn more about whether this option is suitable for you during your consultation.

    How long do dermal fillers last?

    Please note that dermal fillers are not permanent and will eventually be absorbed by the body. The rate at which this happens will depend on factors such as the treatment area, the type of filler used and your skin type, age, and lifestyle.

    Typically, you can expect dermal fillers to last between nine months and two years; however, dermal lip fillers may only last for around six months. If you have never had dermal fillers before, keep in mind that you may require regular treatments every few months before you reach your cosmetic goals. After this, we suggest scheduling top-up treatments every six to 12 months.

    Do dermal fillers hurt?

    During a dermal filler treatment at Cosmos Aesthetics, we will always begin by numbing the treatment area, which minimises the amount of pain felt during the procedure. While you may feel some slight pressure or a stinging sensation as the product is injected, whether or not you find the process painful will depend on the area treated and your individual pain tolerance.

    What if I don't like my results?

    There are a few options available to patients who are unhappy with their dermal filler results. If you need to balance asymmetrical results or simply wish for a more enhanced look, your cosmetic injector can administer additional dermal filler. Alternatively, if you are completely unhappy with how your filler looks, we can inject an enzyme into the treatment area that dissolves the dermal filler completely.

    How much dermal filler will I need?

    Every patient desires a different cosmetic outcome, which means that every patient will require a different amount of dermal filler. If you are looking for a natural enhancement or are new to dermal filler, we usually suggest beginning with a single syringe in the lips or in each cheek. However, if you feel that this is not enough once the swelling has subsided, you are welcome to return to Cosmos Aesthetics Canberra to determine whether an extra ml of filler can help you achieve your desired results. Your cosmetic injector will discuss how much dermal filler will best help you reach your aesthetic goals during your consultation.
