Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are aesthetic, gel-based cosmetic injectables, specifically designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour your face, and create volume. While it is popularly used for lip enhancement, some dermal fillers can also hydrate and revitalise your skin. By filling areas that have lost volume over time, dermal fillers can give patients a fuller, youthful look and more confidence in their overall appearance. Dr Shauna Watts offers personalised treatment plans to each patient based on their needs and treatment areas.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Our faces change as we age. Natural loss of volume is a normal part of the ageing process, and as a result, the face can begin to look sunken and drawn. Cosmetic injectables allow you to control your looks subtly over time and maintain a full, natural glow and hydration. They are designed to enhance facial structure and volume, giving you a natural-looking result that doesn’t affect your facial expression.

Dermal fillers, also called face fillers, are cosmetic injections made of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural material found in the human body. HA works to retain moisture, and when injected, the skin can experience a boost in hydration. The longevity of your cosmetic injectables can vary, depending on the brand, thickness and area treated, as well as your skin type, skin condition, lifestyle, and age.

The Benefits

There are many benefits to these cosmetic injectables. While some people may seek to restore volume that they have lost with age, others may wish to refine naturally small facial features, such as with dermal lip fillers. Dermal fillers create immediate volume and fullness, improving your facial symmetry and overall structure.

Depending on your reasons for seeking treatment, cosmetic injectables can:

  • Enhance the upper and lower lips
  • Improve the cheek and jawline contours
  • Fill under-eye hollows and dark circles
  • Smooth the nasolabial folds
  • Reduce lines and wrinkles
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Improve the look of acne scarring
  • Create a fuller, youthful appearance

The Procedure

Dermal filler treatments are minimally invasive and will usually take around 30 minutes to complete. The exact details of your procedure, such as the amount of filler and injection points, will depend on what you hope to achieve. Dr Watts will guide you through the planning process during your consultation, creating a treatment plan in order to tailor the process to your personal needs and goals.

During the procedure, Dr Watts may apply a topical numbing to avoid any discomfort. The filler will then be administered to the chosen treatment areas in precise doses.

Recovery and Results

Some light redness and swelling after dermal fillers are common. Although the results are immediate, the swelling can make your treated sites appear larger than you expected. Once the swelling has fully subsided, you will be able to see the results of your cosmetic injectables. Taking good care of your treated areas and following Dr Watts’ advice will help you get the results you want. Your aftercare instructions may include:

  • Avoid exercise for 24 hours
  • Apply a cold compress to help reduce swelling
  • Avoid excessive heat or sun exposure
  • Do not smoke or consume alcohol
  • Minimise your facial movement
  • Do not rub or massage the treated area
  • Do not have facial, waxing, or laser treatments for two weeks

After the procedure, you can resume all of your normal activities, as long as you are careful to follow your aftercare instructions. Depending on the type and amount of filler, it can take about four weeks for the filler to settle into place and integrate into the surrounding tissue. The result is enhanced facial contours in your chosen areas and a rejuvenated appearance.
