We also offer Bio-stimulating dermal filler injectables which are the newest craze in the aesthetic industry. These biostimulator dermal fillers are similar to other dermal fillers in that they create volume in a desired area, however they also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the designated area. The biostimulator dermal fillers act as a scaffolding for this new collagen produced, enhancing the quality of skin, and tightening structures for greater longevity and anti-aging effects.
Dermal fillers are mainly composed of Hyaluronic acid, a carbohydrate (sugar) that occurs naturally within the body.
It is mainly used as a volumising agent to plump up desired areas. It is reversible, dissolvable, and temporary as the structure placed will be absorbed by the body over time.
With the correct placement and quantity administered, these types of fillers appear very natural, enabling aesthetically pleasing results.
Whilst all our dermal fillers consist of Hyaluronic acid, the viscosity (consistency/thickness) is variable. Some dermal fillers are more suitable to different areas and/or desired results. The composition of the dermal filler of choice can influence the length of time it lasts and its ability to be manipulated and moulded within your skin.
In the hands of skilled practitioners, this procedure is considered a safe anti-aging treatment with minimal downtime, however anatomical (structural) differences between patients mean that dermal filler injections are not without risk and complications can arise.
Risks can include incorrect placement into the nearby vascular networks (blood vessels), causing vascular occlusions (blockages), and unsatisfactory results through inappropriate volume or depth of product deposition.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural material and reversible. Should any complication or undesired result occur, Our cosmetic doctor can inject a substance called hyaluronidase which will immediately work to dissolve any unwanted dermal fillers.
The effects from treatment are temporary lasting between 12-24 months, with the timeframe for complete breakdown of the dermal filler being variable to each patient. As such results are highly individual and some patients may require further treatment in more or less time than others.
Our Melbourne dermal filler clinic has prioritized your safety through investing in a new wireless ultrasound technology for facial aesthetics. Ultrasound guided dermal filler injection is the most advanced technology in the field of cosmetic injections. This allows for precise and highly accurate placement of dermal fillers, taking dermal filler safety to a whole new level by diminishing the risks.
This innovative device enables your practitioner to access clear imagery in real time of your vascular network (blood vessels), as well as all levels within your skin, muscle, and fascia (nearby structures) for unparalleled safety when administering your dermal filler injections.
This gives piece of mind to both patient and practitioner, through the knowledge of impeccable results being achievable without overfilling and creating an unnatural look or risking placing filler into any nearby vessels and compromising the health of the patient.
Ultrasound imaging is safe and painless, causing no harm to the patient.
Ultrasound technology allows the doctor to see blood flow in real time. A blockage restricting flow can be seen in the ultrasound image if it was to occur.
Yes, ultrasound can be used to accurately place dermal filler dissolvents into areas of unwanted dermal filler. It can also be used to confirm that all dermal filler has been dissolved following this procedure.
When Dermal fillers are placed via blind injections, even highly experienced practitioners cannot determine the exact location of your underlying vessels. The safety of this procedure increases dramatically when combined with ultrasound technology for all practitioners.
No, ultrasound cannot alter any existing dermal filler, it is only able to capture imagery to assist with placement of new dermal fillers or removing of old dermal fillers.
You may experience mild discomfort, swelling or bruising immediately after your treatment. This can be managed at home with paracetamol and cold packs.
When performed by a cosmetic doctor, dermal fillers are considered a safe treatment with minimal risks.
It is recommended that pregnant or breastfeeding mothers should wait until after they have finished nursing to have dermal filler treatment.
It is advised not to participate in heavy exercise, rub or pull at the treated area, have very hot showers, or use saunas in the first 7 days following dermal filler treatment.
Dermal fillers used at QC skin cancer & laser clinic have numbing properties within the injections. This ensures a more comfortable experience for our patients.
