Dermal Filler Treatments Sydney

As we age, the skin slowly begins to produce less collagen and elastin, which can lead to a loss of facial volume and an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. If you are looking to restore lost volume, dermal fillers may be the ideal treatment.

    Understanding the treatment

    Am I a candidate for dermal fillers?

    If you’re concerned with sagging skin, drooping facial contours, wrinkles, creases, and you’d like to achieve firmer, younger skin, then you’re a good candidate for injectable dermal filler. Both women and men of all ages can benefit from filler because it’s not just used for anti-aging but also to enhance facial symmetry and features.

    Can dermal fillers replace surgical procedures?

    Dermal fillers are becoming increasingly sophisticated and specialised, offering patients highly effective non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation. There are some limitations, however. Those who have excess skin or considerable sun damage may require surgery or laser resurfacing to achieve satisfactory results.

    What brands of dermal filler do you use?

    In Australia, advertising guidelines prohibit us from stating which dermal filler brands we use. Classified as prescription medicine, only doctors can prescribe dermal fillers. As such, you must have a consultation with us to ensure that dermal fillers are appropriate for your face. At Cosmos Aesthetics, we use high-quality dermal fillers from a range of well-trusted brands. If you’d like to learn more, we can talk freely about your options during your consultation.

    Can dermal fillers slow down the ageing process?

    While dermal fillers may not prevent the skin from ageing entirely, they can prevent lines and volume loss from getting worse. Dermal fillers can actually stimulate the production of collagen, which keeps our skin looking plump, fresh, and youthful.

    At Cosmos Aesthetics, we are seeing more and more patients opting for dermal fillers as a preventative anti-ageing treatment. While anyone over the age of 18 can have dermal fillers, the best time to begin treatment is different for everyone. Ultimately, dermal fillers are an effective way to reduce the visible signs of ageing without resorting to surgery.

    Can I have other treatments with dermal fillers?

    Yes, many patients choose to combine their dermal fillers with other non-surgical facial treatments, especially 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. You can learn more about whether this option is suitable for you during your consultation.

    Do dermal fillers have any side effects?

    Most people tolerate dermal filler injections very well, even after many years of use. However, with any medical procedure, there are some temporary side-effects such as swelling, redness, and bruising. These normally resolve after several hours or days.

    It is also possible to develop some rare complications, such as infection or lumps (called granulomas). The good news is if patients need to reverse the filler, it can be instantly dissolved with a special enzyme.

    In extremely rare cases, dermal filler can block blood supply if injected into the blood vessels rather than beneath the skin. This can lead to skin death and, in severe cases, blindness. It is for this reason that we always stress seeing a highly experienced cosmetic injector who knows how to avoid these complications.

    How long do dermal fillers last?

    Dermal fillers are not permanent and will eventually be absorbed by the body. How quickly this happens will depend on factors such as the treatment area, the type of filler used and your skin type, lifestyle, and age.

    As a general rule, you can expect dermal fillers to last between nine months and two years, although dermal lip fillers may only last for around six months. If this is your first time having dermal fillers, keep in mind that you may require regular treatments every few months before reaching your aesthetic goals. After this, we suggest scheduling top-up treatments every six to 12 months.

    How do I prepare for dermal fillers?

    There are a number of things that you should do to prepare for a dermal filler treatment. Most importantly, you will need to avoid anything that may thin the blood, including alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, omega-3 supplements, and vitamin E for a week before treatment. If you are prone to cold sores, you may need to speak to your doctor about taking prophylactic medication prior to treatment. If you have had a recent COVID-19 vaccination, be sure to wait at least two weeks before scheduling your dermal filler treatment.

    Do dermal fillers hurt?

    At Cosmos Aesthetics, we always numb the treatment area prior to administering dermal filler injections, which keeps the process relatively comfortable. You may feel slight pressure or a stinging sensation as the product is injected; however, whether or not you find it painful will depend on the area treated and your own pain tolerance.

    What can I do if I don’t like my results?

    If you don’t like your dermal filler results, you have a few options. If you’d prefer a more dramatic look or want to balance some asymmetry, your injector can administer additional dermal filler. On the other hand, if you are completely unhappy with how your filler looks, we can inject an enzyme into the treatment area that dissolves the product completely.

    How much dermal filler do I need?

    Every patient will require a different amount of dermal filler to achieve their desired results. Typically, we suggest beginning with a single syringe in the lips or each cheek, especially if you are new to filler and are looking for a natural enhancement. However, if you find this is not enough, we encourage you to return to Cosmos Aesthetics Sydney to see whether an extra ml of filler can help you achieve your cosmetic goals. During your consultation, your cosmetic injector will discuss with you how much dermal filler will best help you achieve your desired outcomes.
