Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are used to treat fine lines, deep folds and volume loss in the face. The treatments result in volume and contour restoration and a smoother appearance of the skin. The most commonly used fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is naturally present in the human body.

A consultation and assessment with an experienced Medical Aesthetic Doctor is required prior to Dermal Filler injection. At out Centre we adopt the approach ‘Less is More’. Our aim is to maintain and restore what we are losing as the face ages.

  • Avoid blood thinning over the counter medications such as Aspirin, Brufen, Voltaren and other anti-inflammatory medications for 1 week before your treatment. Avoid Omega 3 fatty acids and Arnica as they also thin the blood and increase your risk of bruising. Panado is fine to use.
  • Please notify me if you are using prescription or non-prescription blood thinners so extra precaution can be taken to avoid bruising.
  • Come in 15 minutes early if you would like topical anaesthetic cream to be applied.
  • If this is your first time receiving Dermal Filler Injections a “before” photo will be taken for your patient file. This photo is confidential and will not be shared without your consent.
  • Please remove foundation before your appointment if possible.


  • After the procedure you can use an ice pack at home to lessen any redness and swelling. If necessary apply ice to the treated area for 2-3 hours post injections.
  • You may put makeup on immediately and resume with normal day to day activities, although you may be a little red and swollen for a day or two.
  • A two week complimentary follow up appointment is advised. • Drink plenty of water the day of your injections.


  • After Dermal Filler injections temporary swelling can occur which may last 3-5 days.
  • Mild bruising is common and may take up to 10 days to resolve. For this you can apply Arnica, Traumeel or Voltaren gel.
  • Mild tenderness to the injected area can occur once the anaesthetic has worn off. Two Panado can be taken if necessary.
  • Very occasionally after Dermal Filler injections, painless lumps may form which resolve with time. Gentle massaging of the area will improve the result.
  • Mottling / blanching of the skin can occur in very rare circumstances (1 in 10 000 cases). This may be accompanied by pain in the injected site. Should you notice these changes please phone immediately. The filler can be dissolved with Hyalase and appropriate action taken.
