A dermal filler is a gel injected into the skin, specifically designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour the face and create volume. When administered correctly by an experienced cosmetic professional, dermal fillers can help you achieve a more youthful and invigorated look.

Dermal fillers contain a substance that replicates the actions of a naturally occurring sugar molecule, attracting and holding water to assist with skin hydration. The product is injected under the skins surface to “fill in” and “plump up” the static facial wrinkles that are present at rest.

Although most well-known for plumping pouts and enhancing cheek bones, dermal fillers are a versatile treatment that can be used in a range of areas of your face to reshape and increase volume. Fillers can be injected into the lips to add volume, around the eyes to minimise crow’s feet and into the cheeks and jawline for enhanced definition.

Recently, the addition of local anaesthetic in dermal fillers has made the experience much more comfortable for patients, reducing discomfort and numbing the injected area. If pain is a concern, numbing cream can also be applied to the area before treatment begins.

Dermal fillers come in a range of consistencies that are used on different areas of the face. From very light textures for delicate areas such as the lips, to denser consistencies for larger areas with deeper folds. Results are often instant and can last from three to six months.
