Youthful healthy skin is supported by collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. As we age, the skin loses some of this support as well as its hydration. This gives a loss of volume and definition to some areas of the face.
Dermal fillers can be used to replace some of this lost support to restore volume and give back the definition that is lost with age. The result is a natural look – soft and subtle. Results are immediate.
Not all dermal fillers are the same. At Iconic Medispa, we use non-animal sourced Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers. They are amongst the most advanced formulations available. Results look and feel completely natural.
What are the benefits?
One of the effects of aging is loss of volume in the skin. Dermal fillers replace this lost volume and restore facial contours. They also improve hydration and therefore the health of the skin. Areas treated with dermal fillers not only have improved contours, but also improvement in the overlying skin. Dermal fillers can be used to rejuvenate and enhance many areas including: lips, naso-labial folds, marionette lines, cheekbones, tear troughs (dark circles around eyes), nose and chin.
Who is it suitable for? How safe is it?
Dermal fillers are a safe and effective treatment for almost anyone who requires improvement in soft tissue contours. For younger patients the areas treated are typically: lip shape and volume, and cheekbone enhancement.
Dermal filler treatment is a non-surgical procedure. Whilst all medical procedures carry some degree of risk, at Iconic Medispa it is only performed by highly trained clinicians with many years of experience using the latest techniques. The products we use are high quality, non-animal sourced Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers. Your body breaks this down naturally over time.
What is the procedure?
The treatment involves an assessment of your face and smile dynamics. This is so that we know your facial dynamics will be improved from the treatment. Local anaesthetics is given so that you remain comfortable and do not feel pain during the entire course of the procedure. This is because we know you will get a better result if you are fully relaxed during treatment, and not tense. The procedure usually involves a series of injections into the areas of concern. Results are usually visible immediately after the treatment, however it continues to improve over a 2 week period as the filler becomes integrated with the skin. Downtime is minimal, but there may be some minor swelling or bruising. This can be hidden by make-up.
How many treatments do I need?
Usually, a single treatment is able to address your aesthetic concerns. For some people however, multiple treatments may be required. The number of treatments you need depends on: the results you want to achieve, and the area treated. The results typically last between 6 and 24 months.
What does it do?
Lip fillers are dermal fillers used to provide a lip enhancement. This enhancement is tailored to you and may achieve anything such as: improve the shape of your lips, increase the volume, or simply rejuvenate what you already have. The products are Hyaluronic acid based – a substance found naturally in the body and serves as your body’s natural moisturiser.
How is it done?
After you are numb, dermal filler is injected into you lip to give it the enhancement you desire.
Does it hurt?
The treatment is done under local anaesthetics. The actual lip enhancement does not hurt at all. We believe that you should be relaxed and completely comfortable during the procedure so that we can achieve the best results for you.
What products do you use?
There are a variety of dermal filler products available – all with different degrees of cross linking, densities and concentrations. Prior to treatment we will assess you face and determine the most appropriate product/s to achieve the desired results. Often we may use a combination of products tailored to you. Not all dermal fillers are the same. We only used the highest quality, TGA approved dermal fillers. All dermal fillers used in our clinic are non-animal sourced, Hyaluronic acid based.
What are the results like?
Lip enhancements can be as dramatic or subtle as you like. For some, simply rejuvenating the lips can give improvements to hydration and texture without noticeable changes to appearance. For others, the treatment may involve redefining the shape of the lips and restoring volume. We thoroughly assess your facial proportions and expression dynamics so that the results are always in harmony with your face.
