Dermal fillers Melbourne at ENRICH Clinic – reverse the tell-tale signs of ageing!
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment used to shape and proportion the face. There are many types of dermal fillers to choose from, and your practitioner will choose the type of filler to be used depending on what area is being treated. The treatment has been used in cosmetic medicine for many years and is proven to be safe and effective.
The main treatment areas for dermal fillers are lips, cheeks, tear troughs (under eye area), chin, brows, nasolabial folds and mouth corners. Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness to the face. Loss of subcutaneous fat is a natural part of the ageing process. With loss of fat, the facial muscles begin to operate closer to the skin surface. This means that smile lines, crows-feet and other static wrinkles will become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches as we age, adding to the loss of facial volume. Dermal filler treatment is an effective, non-invasive way to restore volume and firmness to the skin.

Signs of ageing
Dermal fillers can be used to restore structure and definition to the skin. Aging may cause the skin to lose elastin, volume and firmness. Dermal fillers in Melbourne at ENRICH Clinic can be used to address the common signs of aging.
Some of the tell-tale signs of aging include fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of volume and elasticity in the skin. Dermal filler treatment, along with anti-wrinkle injections, can be used to address these signs of aging.
Can I combine dermal filler treatment with anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal filler treatments are commonly used together. Anti-wrinkle injections work to relax underlying muscles which cause wrinkles and lines when the patient moves their face. These wrinkles are referred to as dynamic lines, and include frown lines, crow’s feet and laughter lines.
Dermal filler works best on static lines, such as deep nasolabial folds or to address a loss of volume in the tear troughs, temples, or cheeks. Dermal fillers are also commonly used in the lips. The use of anti-wrinkle injections may even prolong the effects of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers typically last 6-12 months, depending on the metabolism of the patient and the type of filler used. Anti-wrinkle injections tend to last for around 3-4 months, but this may vary from patient to patient.
Are there side effects with dermal fillers ?
The risk of side effect increases greatly when the treatment is performed by a non-qualified injector. Dermal fillers are a medical grade treatment which should performed by a medically qualified practitioner. Our doctors have years of cosmetic experience and work with alongside the patient to deliver effective results akin to the patient’s expectations and desires. Dermal fillers have been used safely in cosmetic medicine for over 20 years, however some complications are known to occur in rare cases. These will be outlined by your doctor and discussed in detail during the consultation process.
Some swelling after dermal filler treatment is to be expected. This will usually subside within 24-48 hours. It is suggested that you minimise or carefully plan social activities and outings prior to your first treatment, in the case that side effects do occur.
Other minor side effects include bruising, lumps or skin discolouration but these are rare. Your doctor will outline in detail any potential risks and side effects associated with the treatment.
