What Are Facial Volumising Injections?

As we get older, the skin on our face and neck begins to lose collagen and elasticity. This inevitably leads to sagging and the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Most people are only concerned about this with areas of their face, such as eyes, lips and forehead. One of the most popular ways used to combat the signs of ageing is with injectable Facial Volumising Treatments.

We can provide experienced and effective face volumising injections in Melbourne for you. Our experienced, caring team can provide all the advice and support you might need. It starts with a free consultation to help us understand what you want to achieve.

Facial Volumisers are a highly popular cosmetic treatment, used by most cosmetic therapists and practitioners for the purpose of facial rejuvenation. They can enhance the appearance of the face and neck areas. Facial volumising injection procedures restore lost volume and improve contours and facial shape. They can also smooth out wrinkles and promote new collagen growth too.

Before deciding on any treatment with us, it's important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Talk to your practitioner about what to expect from this treatment and make sure you understand your recovery time and the likely results.

Types of Cosmetic Volumising Injections

Different types of options that can offer varying results. Most volume increasing injections are made from a clear gel composed of a naturally occurring material found in the skin. They can differ in thickness, viscosity, and longevity. The finer the filler, the shorter time frame that it will generally be effective for. Finer fillers are administered on areas where the skin is also quite fine itself, and smoothness is critical. 

The four types of facial volumising injections Melbourne patients can choose from include :

  1. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (HA): Australia's most commonly used treatment. HA volume fillers add volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours.
  2. Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers: Treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and volume loss. 
  3. Poly-L-lactic Acid Fillers: This filler is used to stimulate collagen production and is often used for facial volume restoration and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
  4. Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Fillers: Often used for deep wrinkles, acne scars, and facial contouring.

What Are Volumising Injections Made From?

Facial volumising treatments can be made from various materials, such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, and calcium hydroxylapatite. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are popular as it attracts water, which leads to increased volume. Hyaluronic acid is also commonly used in moisturisers and is easily reversed by injecting an enzyme hyaluronidase. If the treatment has been done incorrectly by an inexperienced clinic, you can reverse it.

Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers contain calcium particles suspended in a gel that the body absorbs over time while stimulating collagen production.

It is common for these solutions to be blended with a local anaesthetic to reduce the pain sometimes experienced due to the procedure.

How the Procedure Works

  1. Consultation: The process begins with a consultation between the patient and a qualified cosmetic doctor. This is where the patient discusses their concerns and desired outcomes.
  2. Assessment: The patient's skin is examined to identify areas for treatment and suitable volumising filler options.
  3. Informed Consent: Detailed information about the procedure is given, including potential risks and side effects, and the patient provides their informed consent.
  4. Prepping the Area: The treatment area is cleansed thoroughly to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils.
  5. Numbing: Topical numbing cream or local anesthesia is applied to minimise discomfort during the procedure.
  6. Injection: The facial volume filler, usually made of hyaluronic acid, is injected into the targeted areas with a fine needle or cannula.
  7. Moulding and Shaping: The filler is massaged and moulded to achieve the desired shape and symmetry.
  8. Monitoring: The patient is monitored for any adverse reactions or complications.
  9. Aftercare: The patient is advised on post-treatment care, which may include having to avoid certain activities and using ice packs to reduce swelling.
  10. Follow-Up: A follow-up appointment is scheduled to assess the results and address concerns.

This basic procedure outline helps us deliver facial volume filling injections Melbourne patients can trust.

FAQs About Volumising Injections

The amount of solution to be injected into the skin during a procedure can vary based on the individual's needs and the specific areas being treated. However, injecting approximately one millilitre (1mL) of filler into the required areas is common.

Facial volumising treatments will typically last anywhere from six months to two years. It's important to note that each person's body processes them differently, so the longevity of the results may vary. Factors influencing how long the volumising treatment last include the specific product used, the area of the face or body treated, the patient's metabolism, and lifestyle habits.

 In Cheeks? They will normally last between 6 months to 18 months. Some newer types of solutions may even last up  to 24 months.

 Under Eyes?  When applied to the under-eye area (often referred to as tear trough), they generally last between 6 to 12 months

It usually takes about two weeks to settle fully. Immediately after the treatment, there can be a little swelling, redness, or bruising, which is normal and generally subsides within a few days to a week. During this period, the filler gradually integrates with the skin tissues. By the end of two weeks, any initial swelling should have subsided, and the filler should have settled into its final position, giving a clearer picture of the final result.

The cost of non-surgical cheek lifts can vary significantly based on several factors. These include the type, brand, amount of filling solution required, and the specific area being treated. To get an accurate price, don't hesitate to get in touch with our office.

Some of the most common risks and side effects are:

  • Bruising: Bruising can develop at the injection site, which is usually temporary and resolves on its own.
  • Swelling: Mild to moderate swelling is common and typically subsides within a few days.
  • Redness and Tenderness: The treated area may become red and slightly tender for a short period.
  • Allergic Reactions: Although rare, some people may have an allergic reaction to the components in the injectable
  • Infection: There is a risk of infection at the injection site if it is not taken care of. This can be minimised by using sterile techniques and following post-treatment care guidelines.
  • Nodules or Lumps: Small lumps or nodules may occasionally form under the skin.
  • Asymmetry: There is a possibility of uneven distribution of the filler, resulting in asymmetry, which is usually corrected with additional treatment.
  • Movement: The filler material may shift from the intended area, leading to an unnatural appearance. Cosmetic injections applied using the best techniques by an experienced provider will minimise the risk.
  • Granulomas: In rare cases, the body may respond to the filler with the formation of granulomas, which are small nodules of inflamed tissue.
  • Tissue Damage: Incorrect injection depth or technique can potentially cause damage to blood vessels, nerves, or surrounding tissues.

Facial volumising treatments work by adding volume and shape to facial areas. Wrinkle reducing injections reduce wrinkles by temporarily paralysing muscles. The choice between the two usually depends on the specific cosmetic goals and the areas of the face that need treatment.

Facial volumising injections are a quick, non-surgical procedure requiring minimal downtime. This makes it a convenient option for those looking to achieve a more refreshed appearance. The effects of volumising injectables are also temporary, typically lasting 6-18 months, depending on the type of filler used. 

When they are administered by a qualified professional, cosmetic injectables are considered to be a safe procedure with a low risk of complications.
