What are injectable dermal fillers and how do they work?
Dermal fillers are used to fill or replace the lost volume in static wrinkles, lines and folds or to enhance lips and facial features. Unlike anti-wrinkle injections, they do not affect facial muscle contraction. Generally, dermal fillers in Melbourne are used in the treatment of wrinkles, lines, and folds that appear at rest, rather than those that appear during facial expression. Wrinkles due to facial expression are best treated with anti-wrinkle injections. These fillers can also be used to enhance, define, or enlarge lips, and to shape the face by injection into cheeks, chins, and noses. We have recently launched the new Aesthetica Blog, you will find other interesting information on Injectables, fillers and facial rejuvenation there. The full range of cosmetic filler treatments are offered at Aesthetica, the latest next-generation filler is a smooth injectable gel that is made from a natural complex sugar that is found naturally within the tissues of living cells, including human skin.

What happens in a typical treatment?
At Aesthetica our doctors and trained nurses are available for a free consultation where they recommend the most appropriate filler treatment to suit your features and desired look. Your treatment is performed either by a doctor or by a fully trained nurse under the supervision of an Aesthetica doctor. Treatment with dermal fillers usually takes 20-40 minutes after consultation, depending of course on the number of areas treated. The injection itself should cause minimal discomfort, your Aesthetica Doctor or nurse may decide to administer a topical cream or local anesthetic to help numb the area being treated.
How long before I will need another treatment?
Treatments usually last up to 6 months with regular repeat treatments producing longer lasting effects of up to 12 months, sometimes longer. Most people choose to return for a top-up about 9 months after their first treatment.
What should I do after my filler injections to ensure the best results?
Apply a cold compress on the treated areas to relieve swelling and possible bruising. You should avoid strenuous exercise, drinking alcohol and exposure to extremes of hot and cold as this opens up blood vessels and may increase bruising or swelling. The full effect may not be visible for 2-10 days or until any residual swelling subsides.
