Dermal Fillers

Are you losing volume in your mid-face causing sagging in mid and/or lower face? Do you have dark circles under your eyes? This could be due to natural ageing, sometimes a genetic disposition. Dermal fillers are designed to resemble your body’s own natural hyaluronic acid may help replace and restore fullness to your face, softening lines and improving your facial contours

Did you know that dermal fillers can make a world of difference to someone’s face and some people are treated as young as in their 20’s? It’s not an old person’s treatment and most people will start losing volume in their face in their 30s and 40s. Sometimes it’s a genetic disposition, and sometimes regular strenuous exercise can deplete a person’s fat pads in their face. Dermal fillers are designed to replace and restore your body’s own natural hyaluronic acid. This can enhance the face and refresh facial contours that have weakened with time, soften lines and wrinkles, correct asymmetries and restore facial balance. Dermal fillers also restore fullness to lips.

Mid-face (Cheeks) – Dermal fillers can be used to contour the cheeks and restore volume loss in the mid face or in the tear troughs. The appropriate dermal filler (and there are many) can also highlight cheekbones. If the mid face is properly supported naturally or with dermal fillers, then the lower part of the face is less likely to sag and you are less likely to see marionette lines or deep nasolabial folds.

Lower Face – Dermal fillers can also be used to improve the fullness of the lower face and soften nasolabial folds (the lines between the corners of the mouth and the nose). Sagging corners of the mouth and marionette lines can be treated with dermal fillers helping you look happier and not sad. When placed correctly in the face, dermal fillers can provide the supporting structure to stop a mouth looking downturned or sad. Sometimes dermal fillers alone are the appropriate treatment for the lower face and sometimes a combination of laser treatment or cosmeceuticals are important for the best result. There are so many options at our fingertips and at Burnside Cosmetic, you will be offered the best advice at your facial rejuvenation consultation.

Dermal Fillers for Lips – Did you know that we all lose volume in our lips as we age? Volume loss in the lips can be aging to the face. A “pop of lip” can highlight your eyes more and sometimes take the focus off other areas of the face. Volume and fullness to thinning lips can be restored with dermal fillers. This treatment can also create a more defined outline to the border of the lips. If you like wearing lipstick and have had your lips done, you won’t need to overdraw your lips ever again! The vertical lines around the border of the lips and mouth (smoker’s lines) can also be treated. Most people think lip fillers are only for those who are “celebrities” or want ridiculously “large, sausage looking” lips. Most clients at Burnside Cosmetic are after a natural but fuller look to their lips, or giving them more symmetry or hydration. To achieve a natural subtle look to your lip filler treatment, sometimes it needs to be a process, where you will come in a few times to achieve your ultimate cosmetic result. Remember that it also depends on the shape of your natural lip, the size of your mouth compared to the rest of the face, and how much lip you have to start with that determines the treatment plan. Dr Chris will always perform lip filler treatments to suit your face so that your lips will look proportionally suited to the rest of your face, and won’t overfill or give you that “trout” look.

What to look for when choosing your injector:

  • Do they understand anatomy of the face and can they handle any potential complications on the spot?
  • Do they discuss the risks associated with dermal filler treatment?
  • Do they prioritise safety when injecting dermal fillers?
  • Do they consider your entire face as part of their plan?
  • Do they have an aesthetic eye for detail?
  • Do they take the time to discuss what filler they are using and why?
  • Do they care about you as a person?
  • Do they follow you up after a treatment to ensure you are happy?
  • Are they available 24/7 if you have concerns?
  • Would you recommend them to a family member?

If you are not certain about any of the above, we recommend you book a free consultation with our onsite doctor to discuss your treatment options.
