DID YOU KNOW…
Each year Australians spend approximately $1billion dollars on cosmetic treatments? The most popular cosmetic procedures being anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and Laser for facial rejuvenation.
While there are minor risks with any procedures we have performed on our bodies, complications from non surgical cosmetic procedures – including dermal fillers, are uncommon.
Dermal fillers are naturally occurring substances, which are made of the same moistening components of your skin.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – which is found naturally in the body, and a common ingredient in anti-ageing skin care products is the main ingredient in Dermal Fillers, and works its magic by attracting water and providing hydration to the skin.
Treatment with Dermal Fillers reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines, folds and indented scars, and also restores volume and fullness in the face.
While the pain is minimal, some Dermal Fillers have a local anaesthetic mixed with them.
The procedure is relatively quick, taking not much longer than 30 minutes, and results are visible immediately.
Depending on the type of filler used, results will last between 6- 9 months, giving you softly, revitalised facial features.
Before Considering This Treatment
Be aware of heavily advertised and discounted procedures, and make sure the person performing the procedure is a qualified and registered medical doctor or a nurse, who is acting under a doctor’s supervision.
The national register maintained by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency lists all persons who hold registration with the Medical and Nursing Boards of Australia and can be freely searched at www.ahpra.gov.au.
