At Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine, our experienced doctor utilises dermal filler injections to address a range of aesthetic concerns our patients may have. Primarily used to add volume to an area of the face, dermal fillers contain a naturally occurring substance that works to create plumpness, making it suitable for treating everything from fine lines through to scarring. It can also be used to enhance certain areas, making dermal fillers for lips and dermal fillers for eyes popular options.
Dermal filler injections can be used to:
Here at our Sydney cosmetic and surgical clinic, we have a wide range of dermal filler options available, including dermal fillers for the nose, dermal fillers for lips, dermal fillers for eyes, and more. We also offer two different types of dermal fillers: non-permanent and permanent dermal fillers.
The eyes might be the windows to the soul, but even these windows need a good clean every once in a while. One of the most common signs of ageing is what is often referred to as bags, or dark circles under the eyes. While not dangerous or of any medical concern, they can make a person look tired or older than their years, and so most people would rather not have them. They are typically caused by lifestyle factors such as poor diet, lack of sleep and smoking, as well as unavoidable variables such as allergies and genetics. If you’d like to say goodbye to the dark circles underneath your eyes, consider dermal fillers administered by the specialists at Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine.
One of the most common avenues that people turn to for non-surgical treatment of reducing the appearance of eye bags is with the injecting of a dermal filler into the area of the mid-cheek where there’s been a loss of volume and fullness, thus creating the appearance of ‘eye bags’. Injecting dermal fillers helps to replace the lost volume and fill in the eye bag. This smooths out the skin up to the same level of the lower eyelid and cheek, reducing the appearance of eye bags and dark circles for a refreshed, revitalised appearance.
If there’s one part of the body commonly associated with female celebrities, it’s their plump, full lips. For some people, full lips come naturally, while for others a bit of extra make up and a flattering camera angle can go a long way. But for those people with little to no volume in their lips, another option is an injectable filler. Containing a naturally occurring substance found in the body, a filler injection into the lips can add shape, structure and volume. In the past, implants and fat injections were used; however, they weren’t as safe or as effective.
There are numerous advantages that come from using dermal fillers for the lips:
One of the most commonly prized signs of youthfulness and vitality in a person’s face is the fullness and volume of their cheeks. Filled with the necessary collagen and elastin to give them their bounce and vitality when young, as a person gets older that collagen and elastin begins to diminish, and the fullness of the cheeks begins to deteriorate. However, with the assistance of injectable dermal cheek fillers – what some might call a ‘liquid facelift’ – you can experience a fresh and revitalised look once again.
An experienced and qualified Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine practitioner will inject dermal fillers into your cheeks. The dermal fillers are based on a naturally occurring substance in the body so you know it will be safe. This substance is a sugar molecule that serves numerous functions in the body. It binds water and can operate as both a lubricant and an absorber or shock in joints and other movable parts of the body. As for the skin, this substance is vital for the delivery of nutrients and for controlling the skin’s water balance. Not only will the filler minimise the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the cheeks and surrounding areas, but it can also give the skin enhanced volume and hydration for improved vitality and freshness.
Non-permanent filler can last up to 2 years, whilst permanent dermal fillers can last upwards of 7 years. This is dependent upon the filler chosen and your body’s reaction. With all dermal filler injections, it can take several treatments to get to the desired final result. A small group of people will “burn up” all fillers in 2-3 weeks with no apparent residual effect.
