Dermal fillers in Darwin
These days, dermal fillers have become extremely popular for the people of Darwin looking for facial rejuvenation without surgery or downtime. How does a quick treatment, with minimal discomfort, that will leave your skin looking naturally refreshed sound? If you said, “Wonderful!”, then dermal fillers might just be the solution for you.
Dermal fillers available today are the newest technology in minimally invasive, non-permanent facial rejuvenation. Dermal fillers commonly used today binds with 1,000 times its volume in water, which has a couple of results when used in facial rejuvenation: First, it volumises, softens, and hydrates the skin, and second, it stabilises intracellular structure. This helps bind collagen and elastin fibres together, creating a visibly improved skin appearance and contributing to preventing future volume loss. When used in a preventative capacity, dermal fillers can reduce and delay the onset of wrinkles and provide your skin with the strength and support it needs to stay youthful, healthy, and beautiful.
The filler itself is a smooth gel which is placed within the dermis to correct and contour medium-depth facial wrinkles and loss of volume while helping you achieve optimal facial aesthetics. Results last anywhere from six to 24 months. At your complimentary Dermal Fillers consult at our Darwin clinic, we’ll discuss your medical history as well as your skin concerns and expectations with you. We’ll also work with you to devise a personalised treatment plan, tailored to your preferences and current ageing process. You’ll have the option of going ahead with treatment on the same day if you wish, or you may schedule treatment for a future time. On the day of your treatment, we’ll book a future follow-up appointment.
Dermal filler results are visible on the day of your treatment and continue to improve over the next two to four weeks as the dermal filler gradually attracts and absorbs water into the skin. Your results will vary, depending on your current ageing process and your individual body’s response to treatment.
Expect treatment to take about 15 to 20 minutes – or, if you plan to go ahead with treatment on the same day as your consultation, allow 45 minutes for your whole visit. Your treatment will be performed by a highly qualified and skilled nurse under the direction of Dr. Enzo Floridia.
Common Areas Treated
- Nasolabial folds
- Lower face
- Frown lines
Local anaesthetic is incorporated into the gel, which significantly reduces any discomfort during treatment. We also use ice during the procedure to further reduce discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Downtime after treatment is minimal; most clients are able to return to work quickly. However, it is possible that you may experience bruising, swelling, redness, or tenderness for a week or two following treatment. After your treatment, you will need to follow a set of care instructions to maximise and maintain your results.
- Not massaging the treated area, as the dermal filler remains malleable for up to two weeks after treatment
- Avoiding saunas and extreme temperature changes
- Avoiding vigorous exercise for the first 24 hours
- Not sleeping face-down on the treated area for the first 24 hours
- Avoiding makeup for 12 hours
- Abstaining from alcohol before treatment and for 24 hours afterwards
Side effects you may experience during the first few days after treatment include bruising, swelling, and discomfort. These should be minimal and resolve quickly.
