Dermal fillers, Geelong
One of the side effects of aging is a loss of volume in the face, particularly the cheeks or mid-face. While a loss of volume can accentuate the aging process, there are options to restore youthfulness and achieve a natural and pleasing contour of the cheeks. A loss of volume can also be a result of lifestyle, weight loss and genetics.
Simple treatments such as dermal fillers and wrinkle fillers are used to fill depleted facial features and stimulate collagen growth. A dermal filler is injected just below the surface of the skin to fill in wrinkles, create enhanced lips shape and size and add volume to larger areas such as cheeks.
While other Geelong wrinkle treatments act to relax muscle movement, cheek fillers and dermal fillers act to replace volume loss and don’t cause any loss of ability to contract muscles in the face.
Lips are another facial feature that can suffer a loss of volume over time. Lip enhancement involves lip fillers being strategically injected to enhance, shape and even out or create fuller lips. Our goal is to ensure the results you see with Geelong lip fillers are natural and appealing.
What does treatment with our Geelong dermal fillers involve?
During an initial consultation with one of our experienced practitioners, we will discuss any concerns you have about your appearance and the results you are hoping for. We can advise you on the best filler and treatment areas for your particular needs. An individual treatment plan is mapped out for you and the cost will be assessed prior to treatment.
During the anti-wrinkle treatment, our practitioner will use a range of anaesthetic techniques to numb the area and ensure the procedure is as pain-free as possible. Techniques include ice, anaesthetic creams and local anaesthetic injections. You may experience some mild discomfort but generally that is all.
Your Geelong wrinkle treatments should take between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the amount of filler required and the areas to be treated.
We will also outline the possible side-effects and the after-care required from the treatment.
What should I expect after treatment with Geelong wrinkle fillers?
You may experience minor discomfort, however there is minimal downtime required after treatment. We find the most of our clients head back to work or return to their normal activities the very same day. Any swelling or bruising can be covered successfully with make-up.
We advise you avoid any strenuous activities or exercise within 24 hours of your Geelong wrinkle treatments.
Optimal results may be achieved in one session. However it is important to note that wrinkle treatments with dermal fillers may take more than one session to get the very best results. Immediately after treatment, swelling in the injected areas may exaggerate the results. This may be the preferred appearance, however we do advise that you wait for two weeks before making any judgments about the treatment as the product needs this time to settle and any swelling also needs to go down.
There is also the possibility of asymmetry, however this is easily corrected with additional dermal fillers being injected on a subsequent visit. You may also feel small lumps. These often dissipate within seven to 14 days or they may require a different injectable product to dissolve them.
Can I have dermal fillers combined with anti-wrinkle injections?
Absolutely. Our practitioners regularly use both anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. They have very different actions and results and work well together. Wrinkle fillers work by providing volume to the face to fill in lines and our Geelong anti-wrinkle injections work to relax the muscles that cause expression lines.
