Dermal Fillers are products that are designed to contour, create volume, fill lines and hydrate the skin.

Dermal fillers are commonly used in conjunction with anti-Wrinkle Injections that help to relax the facial muscles. The results are immediate.

Sculptra works by restarting your natural process of producing collagen which is a key structural component that provides overall volume and gives shape to your face. From about 30 years old many people begin to notice the effects of collagen loss. Sculptra encourages your body to gradually rebuild its own collagen that's been lost over time helping to gradually reduce lines, wrinkles and folds.
Results from your initial treatment plan can last up to 2 years, with a maintenance treatment required once a year for best results. You won't notice the results of Sculptra immediately but should see improvements after approximately four to 6 weeks.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (ANTI WRINKLE INJECTIONS) What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections? Anti-wrinkle injections are composed of a natural, purified protein. There have been no serious side effects associated with its use by dermatologists. It is a natural, extremely safe, although temporary method of improving wrinkles and signs of aging of the face and neck. When injected into specific facial muscles, wrinkle-causing muscles are relaxed to reduce expression lines and create a younger, softer, and natural-looking appearance.
What to expect during a muscle relaxant injection procedure? This treatment is usually both simple and safe. Small amounts of the muscle relaxant are injected with a very fine needle into the treatment area. As the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is used, discomfort is usually minimal. No sedation or anesthetic is required and you may return to work or your usual activities immediately.
Are anti-wrinkle injections safe? Anti-wrinkle injections have been used for cosmetic purposes for over a decade and for medical purposes for even longer without any reports of long-term side effects. This is a remarkably safe treatment.
What are the most common facial areas treated with anti-wrinkle injections? Anti-wrinkle injections are most commonly used for treatment of frowns, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. They can also be used to create an eyebrow lift, to stop the mouth from pulling down, reduce gummy smiles (by lowering the upper lip), and to reduce neck bands. More and more, people are also using anti-wrinkle injections to tackle excessive sweating which is also known as Hyperhidrosis.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (DERMAL FILLERS) What are Dermal Fillers? Dermal filler is a natural sterile clear gel that is injected into the skin to replace the naturally present synthetic ground substance that is lost as the skin ages. The filler is injected, usually without the need for local anesthetic, into the worrisome lines to plump them out. The filler remains in the skin where it binds water to produce a lift and firmness to the treated areas. For lip enhancement, a local anesthetic injection is usually given to remove any discomfort.
What are dermal fillers made from? We offer fillers that are made from hyaluronic acid. It is a natural sugar that is present in the skin giving form, tone, elasticity and hydration. Hyaluronic acid is not extracted from animals, and because it is a natural substance, it is eventually broken down by the body’s normal pathways.
What happens during a dermal filler treatment? A topical or local anaesthetic may be applied to help numb the area being treated. The dermal filler is then carefully injected beneath the skin’s surface to diminish the depth of facial wrinkles and folds, and to gently restore natural looking structure and volume to the skin and lips. The procedure usually takes between 15-30 minutes and most people resume normal activities immediately afterwards. The results are immediate, long-lasting, and natural.
Where Dermal Fillers are used? Dermal fillers have a wide variety of uses, including the treatment of lines and wrinkles, depressed scars, to enhance cheekbones, enlarge lips or smooth the contour of an uneven nose. Others work by stimulating your own skin’s cell production to give volume and lifting effects. Dermal or facial fillers are commonly used to treat areas in the upper and lower part of the face and are ideal for removing: • Nose to mouth lines • Cheek lines • Lip lines and lip enhancement
How long do dermal fillers last? Dermal Fillers can give you naturally looking results that last for up to a year. These treatments are not permanent and need to be repeated and maintained.
Lip Enhancement Many women and men feel self-conscious about the size, shape or definition of their lips. Lip enhancement can significantly change the appearance of your lips. As we age, the red vermillion of the lip gradually becomes thinner, the lip line flattens, the corners of the mouth begin to droop, and the upper lip tends to flatten out, roll in and lose volume. Vertical lines can appear and cause lipstick to bleed, particularly in smokers, often referred to as smoker’s lines.
Expert injections of dermal fillers refine, fill, lift or plump the lips as well as re-define the shape of the lip or lip line. With techniques available at Sydney Skin you can achieve improved shape or lift of the lip without necessarily having lips enlarged if this is your preference.
