Face and lip filler
Dermal fillers, also called cosmetic injectables, are a volumising facial treatment designed to augment certain areas of the face. Both men and women may seek face fillers to fill areas that have thinned or hollowed over time, like the cheeks and tear troughs. Some people also seek filler treatment to plump certain features, such as the lips, to achieve more volume or symmetry. By filling these areas, patients can attain a more volumised, hydrated, and youthful appearance.
At Begone Skin & Body, we ensure each patient receives a tailored treatment plan and guidance on their aesthetic treatment journey.
Cosmetic injectables offer an excellent solution to common issues. They are gel-like and made from hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the body. Common areas treated with cosmetic injectables include lips, mid face, lower face, and hands. They enhance facial contours whilst smoothing surface wrinkles, and hydrating the skin, leading to a more pleasing overall look.
Dermal filler treatments by cosmetic nurse injectors
Over time, our appearance begins to show signs of ageing such as facial sagging, volume loss, and wrinkles. The aging process starts to become evident due to several factors. This can include genetics, bone structure changes, and a decline in collagen and elastin. Other external factors can also play a role, such as sun exposure, gravity, alcohol intake, pollution, and smoking. Due to these factors, lower face sagging and folds become more apparent, such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and jowls. This is often accompanied by a general reduction in facial volume and skin elasticity.
By injecting a precise amount of filler into strategic areas, we can noticeably improve facial contours. Whether you are seeking to restore volume that has depleted with age or augment naturally narrow features, cosmetic injections can yield great benefits. The longevity of the lip filler or dermal filler varies from person to person and depends on the product used, based on the area of concern.
How dermal fillers work
Dermal fillers are TGA approved and are an effective way to smooth wrinkles and volumise the skin without invasive surgery. They provide volume and structure to the face, as well as hydration, helping patients maintain a youthful and glowing appearance.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body that it depletes as we age. HA fillers have the ability to restore volume and stimulate the body to produce its own natural collagen. Additionally, the substance attracts water and helps the skin stay plump and hydrated. Since everyone may have different reasons for seeking a facial volumising procedure, we may target different areas of the face based on your goals.
Cosmetic injectables can be injected into the following areas to achieve certain effects:
- Lips – to project, define, create fullness and correct asymmetry
- Mid face – to lift and restore fullness to the eye, nose, and cheek area
- Lower face – to refine and plump, reducing jowls and sagging around the chin and jawline
- Hands – to replace volume loss and decrease visible signs of ageing
Your consultation at Begone Skin & Body
As it is important to assess your personal anatomy, the degree of aging and facial changes, you will undergo a consult prior to your cosmetic injectables treatment. During your meeting with our trained clinical staff, we will discuss your goals, concerns, and what would be the most suitable treatment approach for you. We can then decide on the most ideal type and placement of filler for achieving the desired result.
Once we have discussed these factors, we can begin creating your cosmetic injectables treatment plan. We will take you through the process, offering professional guidance in order to help you prepare. You are welcome to raise any concerns or bring up any questions.
Cost of cosmetic injectables in Perth
The cost of your cosmetic injectables treatment is based on various factors. Every patient has their own desires for the outcomes of treatment, and due to this, we will need to outline a treatment plan before detailing costs. Pricing will depend on the extent of your procedure, injection points, as well as the type and amount of filler required. A larger amount of filler, for example, will likely cost more than a subtler augment. We can discuss these factors during your consult and provide you with a more detailed idea of the costs involved.
If you have further questions, we can discuss the cost of dermal fillers during your consultation.
A cosmetic injectables procedure takes place after the initial consult. Once we have discussed your facial aesthetic goals and created a plan for treatment, your treatment session may take up to 45 minutes. We may apply an anaesthetic in order to minimise any pain or discomfort during your procedure.
Your dermal fillers will be injected by one of our skilled cosmetic nurse injectors, targeting certain areas to enhance the desired facial contours. Injections are made with fine needles and in precise amounts in order to distribute the product and achieve your ideal outcome. Due to the nature of HA fillers, effects are visible immediately following treatment. However, you can expect to see the full results after a few weeks, once the swelling has fully subsided, and the filler has integrated.
Dermal fillers aftercare
After getting cosmetic injectables, you will notice some mild swelling in the area treated. Due to this, your treated areas may appear larger than desired; however, this is only temporary and will subside within about a week. Your filler may take up to three to four weeks to properly integrate and settle into place, and full results of the procedure will be visible after this period.
In order to help you minimise risks during the healing phase, we may advise that you:
- Apply a cold compress to help with swelling
- Drink plenty of water
- Do not rub or massage your skin
- Use prescribed topical creams
- Sleep on your back with your head elevated
- Avoid alcohol and smoking
- Avoid chemical peels, facials, and waxing
Risks and complications
Dermal fillers are a low-risk procedure, and complications are rare. However, it is important to be fully informed before you undergo treatment. Uncommon complications can include:
- Skin rashes
We will discuss these risks with you prior to your cosmetic injectables treatment. If you have any of the above symptoms, or prolonged side effects, please contact us and we will advise you further.
