Dermal Filler Injections in Melbourne

Dermal Filler Injections and Injectables at Coco Ruby Skin Clinic Melbourne

What are dermal filler injections?

Injecting Dermal fillers is a procedure that helps to restore facial volume loss, as well as, plump up deep lines and folds within the skin. A smooth injectable gel consisting of a temporary-filler solution is injected below the skin’s surface to “fill in” wrinkles, “plump-up” small areas such as the lips and “re-volumise” large areas like the cheeks. We only use high-quality dermal filler injectables that are also temporary in nature – long-lasting but giving you the option to change your appearance or to revert to how you looked before you enhanced your features, once their temporary effects wear off.

Benefits of Dermal Filler Injections – How do they help?

Temporary fillers are also usually less of a concern to patients than permanent fillers, in terms of potential complications.  Furthermore, permanent fillers (which we do NOT use) can lead to some unwanted serious long-term effects if administered improperly or by unskilled injectors.  This noted you’ll want to be sure to use only a very skilled Injecting Professional (such as our Registered Nurse Sandra Wallace) – who has decades of experience injecting faces and lips for great results.

Helping you feel good about your skin is important to us. Our leading Melbourne aesthetic practitioners provide both honest skin evaluations and rejuvenation opinions .

  • Would you like to reduce your facial wrinkles?
  • Do you have deep lines ?
  • Do you have sunken eyes?
  • Are your cheeks hollowing out because of lost volume?
  • Are the edges of your mouth turning down and jowls developing?
  • Do you have an overly gummy smile?

What does filler injectables treatment involve?

Dermal filler injections are non-surgical procedures that involve injecting gel under the skin by a trained medical professional.

For increased comfort during the procedure, some filler products are specifically formulated with a local anaesthetic.

How long do dermal filler injections last?

The results of dermal filler injections can last between 8-18 months.

What are the possible side effects & complications?

Dermal fillers have been used for many years, and clinical trials have shown that it is well tolerated. However, there are still some potential side effects, including:

  • Redness to the injection site
  • Pain
  • Firmness
  • Swelling
  • Lumps and bumps
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Discolouration

In most cases, these side effects are temporary and should resolve within a week.

To help you find a qualified and experienced injector for facial rejuvenation, always find out:

  • Who will be doing the actual injecting. Its also important to find out what their qualifications, training and experience are?
  • How many clients has your injector treated?
  • Which brands of injectables do they use?
  • How sterile are their facilities and equipment?
  • Will there be onsite medical supervision and emergency support?
  • Do they provide adequate post-injection instructions for best results?
  • Do they have before and after patient photos?
  • And, do they fully understand your aims and expectations?
