What are dermal fillers?
All of the premium dermal fillers we use contain hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in our skin. Hyaluronic acid improves skin hydration and texture and helps to restore and add volume to the areas it is injected into. It lifts sagging skin, replaces lost fullness due to ageing, and fills lines and wrinkles.
The result is subtle plumpness and definition that visibly improves the areas you’re dissatisfied with. We say subtle because keeping your natural beauty and not looking blatantly enhanced is our speciality. Your contouring is carefully done to best match your features and not the ‘average’ person.
Our Registered Cosmetic Nurses do not have sales targets so they are totally committed to providing you with the best possible options based on what is right for you! so you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.
What areas can be treated?
The areas that can be restored and enhanced with dermal filler treatments are:
- Under eyes
- Marionette lines
- Naso-labial lines
- Lines & Wrinkles
How dermal filler treatment is carried out
If you choose to have your dermal filler treatment with us at Jade Cosmetic Clinic, this is what you can expect:
One of our experienced Registered Cosmetic Nurses will have a consultation with you, where they will assess your facial features and spend time understanding your concerns and ensuring you have all the information before you decide to proceed with any treatments.
Once you’ve decided what’s right for you, we’ll come up with a personalised treatment plan and discuss the best filler options. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions and discuss any concerns you may have.
Filler treatments can take 30-60mins to perform. Our Registered Cosmetic Nurses are skilled in the most effective techniques and will ensure you are fully informed and comfortable at all times.
We only use premium fillers containing a local anaesthetic, in addition to preparing the treatment areas with topical anaesthetic where required
Results are immediate but will continue to improve for 2-4 weeks. We recommend a review at 4 to 6 weeks after treatment to ensure that we have obtained the best possible result.
We take photos that form part of the client’s medical history. They assist us in ensuring we have achieved the desired result.
Below are some of our most frequently asked questions about dermal filler treatment:
No, you can return to work immediately following the procedure. We do, however, recommend that for a first visit, it is better to schedule an appointment for the end of the day and preferably the end of the week.
At our clinic, we offer five grades of dermal fillers that can last from 9 to 24 months. The longevity of the effect depends on several factors including facial structure, skin texture, and importantly, the product selected. Most people opt for a top-up every 12 months.
In the practice of safety and minimising risks, we only use fillers that are completely dissolvable. These types of fillers are considered the safest available.
The most common side effects of filler are redness, bruising and swelling that in most cases subside within a couple of days. The likelihood of side effects that are specific to your treatment will be discussed with you prior to treatment. Uncommon and serious complications can occur with dermal fillers and this is why we recommend that you only seek treatment with experienced and skilled practitioners.
Yes, dermal fillers are often combined with other treatments like anti-wrinkle injections as the two treatments can be used to complement each other.
The injections might feel briefly uncomfortable but shouldn’t be painful. We only use premium fillers containing a local anaesthetic, in addition to preparing the treatment areas with a topical anaesthetic prior to treatment, to reduce any potential discomfort.
Dermal fillers are naturally dissolved by your body over a period of 6 to 24 months, however, recent studies are indicating that some fillers may remain present for several years.
