At Skin Care Australia Clinics we only use natural, sugar based dermal fillers for skin rejuvenation. The newer Natural Dermal Fillers are much safer and have much less side effects than some of the synthetic fillers. Natural Dermal Fillers are similar to a component of the body that works to hold moisture in your skin while increasing the elasticity, durability and radiance of your skin. Clear gel Natural Filler injections plump up the skin, fill in wrinkles, and offer a youthful, refreshed look. We only use the premium brand of Dermal Fillers, which give the best results and the longest duration.
When performing this treatment we use ultra strong local anaesthetic cream, which will make it almost pain free. Ice packs are used to limit bleeding and bruising. We then decant the filler into the smallest needles to minimise pain and bruising. They also give a more even, natural result. You can expect the procedure to take around 30 minutes, with the results being immediate.
The length of time the Natural Filler will last will depend on the thickness and the amount of the chosen filler, and the location injected. In general the thicker the filler and the greater amount is injected, the longer it will last.
• Thickest Fillers: 12-24 months , these fillers will give the most lift as the particle size is the largest. They are best in all areas of the face except under the eyes. They are also excellent for reinforcing or enlarging structures such as cheek bones, jaw lines, and chin.
• Medium Grade Fillers: 9 – 12 months. These are mid range thickness and best suited for: lips, smoker’s lines, under eye hollows, most wrinkles, nose reshaping.
Is to use the thickest dermal filler on our patients for each area, thereby ensuring that each client receives the most lift and duration of life of product for each area corrected. Deep volumising also looks natural and restores volume to where it is being lost.
SIDE EFFECTS AND REVERSAL PROCEDURE
Of all the facial treatments available, Natural Filler injection is one of the safest procedures. Most clients will have no sign of filler injection after the procedure. Occasionally, some will experience mild bruising, redness and swelling. Clients can gently apply foundation if cover up is required. Very rarely, infections or cysts can occur after injections of the fillers, but these can always be corrected with use of antibiotics and Natural Filler dissolving injections as a last resort.
To minimise the risk of bruising, we advise all our clients to avoid the following for several days prior to treatment:
• Green tea
• Fish oil capsules, Vitamin E, Ginko Biloba, St John’s Wart
• Anti-inflammatory / Blood Thinning medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and can increase the risk of bruising/swelling after injections.
Schedule your wrinkle relaxer appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which may be occurring.
POST TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
We recommend all clients to apply ice to the area that was injected about one hour after the procedure, as this will help prevent bruising and swelling. Avoid Exercise, hot showers, or rubbing the area for 36 hours. If bruising occurs, Lasonil or Hirudoid cream can be applied to the bruise after 36 hours four times a day until the bruise has dissolved.
