Have you ever asked the question “what are dermal fillers?” Well, Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne can fill you in on this procedure that helps to combat the signs of ageing.

Dermal filler is a non-surgical treatment that works to combat issues such as lines or creases caused naturally by ageing by creating the effect of volume and definition.

Various Dermal Filler Types

The various dermal filler types are available for different applications based on your needs and wants. A free consultation with Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne will be required to assess your goals and decide the best path forward for you.

While we are not allowed to name specific dermal fillers, the most predominant options available in Australia can include:

  • Non permanent fillers: Also known as HA fillers, these are the most common option for most of the modern cosmetic fillers. These non-permanent options are biodegradable and temporary, eventually breaking down through natural processing in the body over time. These fillers offer ease of use, high levels of safety, and patient satisfaction.
  • Semi permanent fillers: Calcium Hydroxylapatite and Poly-L-Lactic Acid fillers which cannot be dissolved useful in areas where non-permanent fillers can be costly over time
  • Permanent fillers: Soft volume fillers that work to enhance facial contours including, the cheekbones and lips. We do not recommend using permanent fillers in vascular areas like the nose or areas with thin skin like tear troughs. These dermal fillers are great for smoothing out wrinkles or folds. Capable of offering natural results with immediate and lasting effects.

Some Important Things to Know About Dermal Fillers

Areas that are affected by the ageing process can be assisted by dermal fillers to be refreshed and rejuvenated. Dermal fillers can work to replace volume that has been lost over time.

The dermal filler procedure involves the strategic injection of the dermal fillers to either enhance, shape, even out or add volume to help create a youthful appearance. Wrinkles can be targeted with improved reinforcement of the skin which also has the effect of making these areas less prone to wrinkling.

There may be swelling and bruising after the application of dermal fillers, but the process itself only requires a gentle injection.
