Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are non-surgical injectable treatments that can be used for fine lines and wrinkles, folds and creases, volume replacement, and facial contouring. As per Australian regulations, we are not permitted to mention the brand names or ingredients of the dermal filler we use in clinic. Dermal fillers are formulated to mimic a molecule found in the body. They have a gel-like consistency that helps them bind with water and act as a lubricant, volumniser or provide more structure. Dermal fillers generally provide more hydration to the area treated due to the structure of the active ingredient.

The Treatment

Dermal fillers can be utilised in a variety of treatment areas. During your consultation, our team of medical  practitioners will work with you to create a customised treatment plan that specifically targets your areas of concern and provides a pan-facial assessment. We will ensure you are suitable for treatment with dermal fillers and will advise you of the potential risks and complications that can happen. Treatment time can vary pending on the individual and the planned treatment approach.

General Questions

Risks and complications:

At Aesthetiqué Medical, we prioritise the safety of our patients and acknowledge that dermal fillers may pose potential risks and complications, such as allergic reactions, infection, pain, rash, bruising and bleeding, migration, and granulomas. In rare instances, serious but extremely rare complications like vascular occlusion, necrosis, blindness, and stroke may occur. We will ensure to discuss all potential risks and complications with you before you undergo any dermal filler procedure, and thoroughly advise you to follow all post-treatment instructions carefully to minimise the risk of complications.

How long does it take to see results?

You will notice the effects of the treatment right away, and as the filler integrates over a period of 2-4 weeks, the results will continue to improve.

How do I prepare for my dermal filler appointment?
  • Avoid blood thinners: aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oils or other blood-thinning medications for at least a week before the treatment, as they can increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.
  • Avoid consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours before the treatment, as it can also increase the risk of bruising and swelling.
  • Make sure to drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your treatment to keep your skin hydrated.
  • Refrain from strenuous exercise or activity for at least 24 hours.
  • Arrive at your appointment with a clean, makeup-free face.
  • Plan for downtime. Depending on the extent of your treatment, you may experience some bruising, swelling, or redness afterwards. Plan accordingly and avoid any important social events or activities for at least a few days after the treatment.
What are the contraindications to having dermal fillers?

If you have an allergy/anaphylaxis to bee stings, have active skin infections, such as cold sores or acne, in the treatment area, pregnancy or breastfeeding, bleeding disorders or use of blood thinners, immunocompromised conditions or use of immunosuppressive medications, a history of keloid scarring or hypertrophic scarring, active autoimmune disorders, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, or have an active cancer or history of cancer in the treatment area then dermal fillers may not be appropriate for you. 

It is important to discuss any medical conditions or medications you are taking with your medical practitioner before undergoing a dermal filler treatment to determine if it is safe and appropriate for you.

How long do dermal fillers last?

The duration of the effects of dermal fillers can range from 6 to 18 months, depending on factors such as the specific type of filler used and the patient’s individual metabolism.

What is the aftercare post dermal filler injections?
  • Avoid alcohol and blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or fish oils for at least 1 week after the treatment.
  • Avoid applying makeup or other products to the treated area for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
  • Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, such as hot showers, saunas, or sunbeds, for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
