Dermal Fillers and Facial Injectables
Dermal Fillers / Facial Injectable Treatment
Dermal Fillers is a non- invasive treatment which is commonly used to restore volume and plumpness to various parts of your face such as your lips, chin, cheeks, the jawline and even the nose.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity, volume and structural support which leads to the deterioration in skin health.

Improving the appearance of soft tissues
The benefit to using Dermal fillers is that it’s fast and easy. Injections are administered and improvements are visible instantly.
How does it work?
After your initial consultation with the dentist , a tiny and safe needle will then be used to inject the filler into the targeted areas. As your comfort is our number 1 priority and throughout the entire process our highly qualified practitioner will continually check in with you to ensure there are no concerns or discomfort. As our clinicin is a dentist, a dental anaesthetic may be used for your convenience. Apart from not eating until you regain the feeling in your face, usually there is no downtime associated with this procedure, and people are usually able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Dermal filler treatments can last between 6-24 months depending on the area of treatment. Based on your areas of concern, your practitioner may recommend a series of treatments for optimal results in your follow up appointment which will be held 2 weeks after your treatment. Please note all patients are required to sign a patient consent form before undertaking the procedure, which include all the necessary info.
There are various health conditions which may affect the procedure. Due to this, all patients are required to complete a Consultation form prior to any clinical treatment at our Camberwell Dental and Facial Aesthetic Clinic which will then be assessed by our qualified dental practitioner. Some risks and side effects associated with the use of Dermal Fillers are redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness or itching sensation in the treated area. These side effects (if occur) typically resolve within a few days. However, if you experience any discomfort as a result of the treatment, you should notify us immediately so that the appropriate treatment may be prescribed.
What are the dermal fillers made up of?
The dermal fillers contain a substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is already naturally present in our skin, eyes and joints. Like other natural substances such as collagen and elastin, the level of HA found in our bodies is reduced as we get older which results in our skin looking less plump due to the lack of support in our facial structure. Dermal fillers restore this volume which smooths out the lines and wrinkles. In addition to this, HA is very hydrating and can improve the condition of the skin.
