Is your face looking dull, tired and saggy every day? People keep asking you if you are sick and you are sick of that question itself. Dermal filler treatments here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors may be the solution you need.

With age, people’s facial and body muscles start to lose their elasticity and the skin stops producing collagen, making the body lose its shape. These physical and internal changes that our bodies and faces go through becomes evident externally over time. Our experts here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors can tell you if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

Dermal fillers in Melbourne can give you a fresher look by stimulating collagen production and tightening your skin again in a short time. They can last anywhere between 9 months –  5 years depending on your lifestyle and the type or chemical composition of your fillers. Once the fillers wear off, the treated area goes back to its original state before the treatment. Consult our experts here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors to know what treatment will suit you the most.

The effectiveness of dermal lip fillers often depends on the type of injection you are getting, your body’s metabolism rate, the climate of your location and whether you smoke or not. It is very important to remember that getting more dermal fillers is not the solution. Before opting for more fillers, get a consultation from our experts here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors.

Still confused? Let us help you decide by telling you about some of the advantages and disadvantages of getting dermal fillers.

Let us look at some of the facts and pros of Dermal fillers in:

  • Most patients do not get any kind of scarring from this procedure, but in rare cases, scars are still very short-lived and go away in a little bit of time.
  • Your skin may be sensitive to touch initially up to 24 hours after your session.
  • You will not feel any pain during the treatment since your lower face will be numbed using an ointment beforehand so no risk of anaesthesia.
  • Immediately after the treatment, your facial area will start swelling up and will continue to do so until the 2nd day. The swelling will gradually decrease within a few days.
  • You may need anywhere between 2 – 6 sessions depending on the number of vials you will need to see the complete results.
  • The results from dermal filler treatments are not permanent. If you do not like the result of the treatment, you can get it professionally reverted easily, or you can even wait for the fillers to wear off.
  • This is a complete non-invasive non-surgical treatment. It is also relatively risk-free and no type of incision is made on your face.
  • With very minimal downtime, you can expect to get back to your regular lifestyle almost immediately.

You know the pros, now let us look at some of the cons of Dermal fillers:

  • Dermal filler treatments are not permanent. While there are pros to this, there are also cons. You have to continue to get treatments each time the fillers wear off to maintain the results.
  • All cosmetic treatments pose some risks. Although the risks with dermal filler injections are rare, they are still present. Risks include some rashes, swelling, and possible infection. Also, there are chances of the fillers moving away from the injected area or even forming lumps. The good news is, all of these risks are very rare and very easily curable.
  • Cosmetic treatments cost a lot. The more advanced a treatment, the more dent it can make in your pocket. Dermal fillers cost about $600 – $800. The costs can vary depending on the location and the proficiency of the doctor. Yes, the cost of hyaluronic acid used in dermal fillers is high, but these treatments are so common and popular nowadays that the price is actually okay compared to many other similar treatments. At least the cost is lesser than surgical alternatives.
