As we age, a loss of volume in the skin and fat of the face can create deep lines and grooves, often running along the cheek or chin. Our qualified practitioners can improve these grooves by injecting a natural dermal filler that restores that lost volume and support the skin underneath dynamic lines.
Our experienced team can also use dermal fillers to beautify and boost the structural features of the face through lip augmentation, chin augmentation and cheek augmentation. Dermal fillers can also be used for jawline straightening and acne scarring.
Done using only the most premium brand fillers, treatments take 30 minutes and the benefits last 6-12 months, sometimes longer, depending on your metabolism, age and the condition of your skin.

What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft, moldable gels made from a compound that occurs naturally in the skin. They are injected under the skin to restore volume in the face, filling in creases, folds, depressions and scars. They can also smooth out wrinkles.
Which areas can be treated?
Dermal fillers can be injected anywhere that volume is required in the face, most commonly:
- Frown lines, grooves and folds around the mouth, smile lines, jowl lines and under the eyes.
- Forehead and temple
- Cheekbones and chin
- Surgical or post-acne scars
What happens during the procedure?
As with all our procedures, the first step is a one-on-one consultation with one of our experienced practitioners. Once your questions have been answered and the best approach is agreed, the filler will be injected with a very fine needle. At a complimentary follow-up, our team will review and massage your filler to ensure it stays properly in place.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Yes. Dermal fillers are very safe and our practitioners are highly qualified. We only use premium brands approved by the regulating bodies of Australia. As the main ingredient in dermal fillers is a compound that occurs naturally in the skin, allergic reactions are extremely rare.
Are dermal fillers painful?
Dermal fillers have a fast-acting local anesthetic mixed into the gel, meaning that any discomfort passes very quickly. The injected area may become numb for 20 minutes after the procedure and may become tender, but any tenderness should subside in a few days.
Are there any side effects to dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are generally well tolerated, but as with any medical procedure, side effects can occur. Reported side effects are usually minimal and limited to the injection site. They include swelling, tenderness, redness, bruising, itching and discoloration. In the majority of cases, any side effects are temporary and resolve themselves.
How many sessions will I need?
Depending on the area you’re using dermal fillers for, we may recommend that you have two or three consecutive sessions. This will help you achieve more natural looking results.
What is the legal age for dermal fillers?
18, unless you’re accompanied by a parent or guardian who provides consent to the treatment.
Can I have this treatment if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
Unfortunately, no. Whilst dermal fillers are regarded as safe, medical ethics preclude us from providing injectable treatments during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
