DERMAL FILLERS

Dermal fillers are products that are placed into the skin or lips to give a filling effect and can be used to treat everything from lines and wrinkles, to depressed scars. They can also enhance cheekbones, enlarge lips or smooth the contour of an uneven nose. 

Other fillers work by stimulating your 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 

    The procedure

    A 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 anaesthetic, 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 anaesthetic injection is usually given to remove any discomfort.

    There are numerous fillers available, each working in different ways. Unfortunately TGA rulings prevent us from referring to these products by name. Temporary fillers usually last from six to 12 months and need top-ups to maintain the look they achieve for you.Dr Tew uses a variety of different dermal fillers depending on the area to be treated and the desired results. 

    Dermal fillers are safe with a low incidence of allergic reaction. There is a very small possibility of allergic reaction, which will be discussed with you when you visit the clinic for a consultation. You can expect some degree of redness and swelling after the treatment. This usually clears up within 1-2 days so we recommend that you don’t have the treatment directly before an occasion. The dermal treatment usually takes around 30 minutes to complete.

    ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS

    As we age, overactive muscle movement gradually wears away the healthy cells that keep the skin plump, causing it to crease and wrinkles to appear. Sun exposure, smoking and the breakdown of supporting structures (such as elastin fibres) also contribute to wrinkles. 

    Anti-wrinkle injections can combat both fine lines and also deep wrinkles, fixing:

    • Frown lines between the eyes
    • Forehead lines
    • Crow’s feet
    • Migraine and tension headaches 

      An improvement can be seen within days and may last up to 6 months, although results may vary.

      Anti-wrinkle injections have been used as cosmetic treatments since the late 1980s, revolutionising the cosmetic industry due to its remarkable results combined with very few risks and no recovery time. Anti-wrinkle injections have been used to treat millions of patients worldwide.

      The procedure

      This treatment will usually take around 20 minutes to complete. It has been clinically proven to be safe, quick and virtually pain-free. Clients are able to carry on with normal day-to-day life directly after the treatment.

      LASER RESURFACING

      Laser skin resurfacing is a precision treatment which helps reduce deep wrinkles and fine lines in micro-layers, working until all the damaged skin is gone.

      Laser resurfacing is a treatment that can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as: 

      • Facial skin imperfections
      • Birthmarks
      • Unsightly small veins
      • Brown pigment 
      • Age spots
      • Freckles and sun damage

        The procedure

        Depending on your individual needs, the number of laser treatments required may vary. This will depend on the extent of the problem being treated and area of the body. The effects may last up to three to 10 years or even longer. This will also be influenced by how you look after your skin.

        Immediately following the procedure, you will feel as if you have bad sunburn and will have minor itchiness the following day. By day two, redness will begin to fade and by day three, any redness can be easily covered by make-up. Before you leave the surgery, you will be provided with a post-treatment program to care for your skin. This will promote fast healing and help to avoid infection. Most patients take four to seven days off work following such a procedure.

        Laser resurfacing is a safe treatment delivered by a computer controlled system, which removes only specific amounts of the outer layer of skin. Both depth and energy is controlled.

        FAT INJECTIONS

        Fat injection, sometimes known as a fat transfer procedure, is the technique used to move fat from one area of the body to another.

        As we get older, the underlying tissues that plump up our skin and keep us looking youthful begin to break down. This is the natural aging process and leads to the appearance of features such as lines and wrinkles. 

        Your own body fat can be used to fill lips, nasiolabial folds, provide definition to cheeks or to the jaw line or to fill any depressed or scarred areas of the face. Fat injections is a procedure that can help improve these various signs of aging. 

        • Fat injections can be used in various areas of the face:
        • Filling in deep facial wrinkles and creases 
        • Plumping up sunken areas and deep folds 
        • Adding fullness to the lips and cheeks 
        • Creating an overall better balance to one’s facial symmetry 

          The procedure

          Because fat injections use your own body fat, an allergic reaction is unlikely. As with any cosmetic procedure, there is always a small possibility of infection and other complications, although these are rare.

          The results of fat injections can be long lasting. The amount of time between injections depends on the injection site and your body’s own ability to reabsorb the fat. It is necessary to overcorrect the deformity to allow for some absorption by the body. Usually the fat that remains at four months will be the final result achieved.

          LASERLIPOLYSIS

          Laserlipolysis, also known as laser-assisted liposculpture, is a revolutionary new liposculpture procedure for the removal of small volumes of fat. This Nd-YAG laser is designed to ‘melt’ fat and induce the skin’s natural protein cells to help maintain formation in the skin. 

          The procedure

          The laser is delivered via tiny stab incisions in the skin, and works best in the neck and face. This procedure can effectively reduce areas of fat resistant to diet or exercise whilst reducing the risks associated with traditional procedures such as liposuction.

          Laserlipolysis is not for the removal of large amounts of unwanted fat. In this case, traditional liposuction would be used. Compared to traditional liposuction, laserlipolysis results in less bleeding, less bruising, less swelling, smaller incisions and better results. 

          It is effective in areas where the fat layer is quite thin, as the body is able to remove liquefied fat more effectively.

          LIP ENHANCEMENT

          Lip enhancement creates fuller, plumper lips and reduces fine wrinkles around the mouth. Lips may be injected with natural proteins or a semi-permanent dermal filler. The benefit of a dermal filler over natural proteins is that the proteins are eventually absorbed by the body and repeat treatments are necessary to maintain results. 

          Enhancing your lips can often improve self-confidence and give greater symmetry to your face. Lip enhancements are suited to people who have thin lips, no real defined shape, or whose lips are uneven. Lip enhancement can be also used to bring greater symmetry to someone’s smile, particularly if the upper lip is considerably thinner than the lower lip.

          The procedure

          There will be some swelling immediately after the procedure. Side effects are rare but some light bruising might well occur. Lip enhancement usually takes around 30 minutes to complete and results will last up to six months if temporary fillers are used, or about six years if semi-permanent fillers are used.

          DEPIGMENTATION

          Dark spots and pigmentation on the face, chest and hands are one of the greatest appearance issues facing Australians today. Depigmentation treatment is very effective in the improvement of dark patches and brown skin blemishes. Creams can be used to remove unwanted pigmentation on your skin and inhibit the formation of new pigmentation.

          Depigmentation treatment can:

          • Help achieve a clear complexion
          • Remove unwanted pigmentation
          • Interrupt melanin production in affected areas
          • Restore skins natural luminosity
