Dermal filler overview

anti-wrinkle treatment idental

Dermal fillers are very versatile and are used to treat many of areas of the face and neck. They are made from a naturally occurring sugar and are very hydrophilic (they hold onto a lot of water), which naturally improves the skin condition.

Why does our face age?

As we age, natural ageing factors such as loss of facial fat, change in the structure of bones, gravity and loss of elastin and collagen can result in deep lines, saggy skin and areas of hollowing over the face. This combined with external factors such as sun damage and dynamic wrinkles can further cause changes in the once full and supple face.

Dermal Filler techniques

As you age, you begin to lose volume and bone mass. At Dermal Distinction, we believe fillers are best used to preserve and even correct your facial bone structure rather than to just have a filled face. Before we choose the filler, we always start by diagnosing the problem, examining bone structure and fat pads and then determining the best product to preserve structure, reduce ageing and improve lift and contours.

Booster Fine Line Reduction

A skin and filler treatment in one, our Booster technique allows us to smooth fine lines such as smoker lines and chin lines without a puffy appearance. We use soft bioidentical dermal filler injection to treat the fine lines around the mouth, eyes, and neck. This is also used to help smooth “necklace lines” acquired from “tech neck” and genetics.

Jaw Sculpt (Men)

Bone-like filler is placed along the jawline for a more defined jaw- to neck-line ratio. This also helps the submental (chin) area appear smaller. Since the filler will move with the bone during talking, chewing and moving, proper technique is crucial.

Mouth Jowl Support

No one likes it when they develop jowling on the sides of the mouth as they age. We use a filler to create a lift in the jowl area. Bruising is eliminated and recovery time is reduced through the use of micro-cannulas.

Chin Projection

We assess the chin through three planes: length, width and projection. We also consider facial shape and gender. Our treatment uses different techniques to address all 3 planes, making a simple chin treatment a great way to harmonize the entire face and add individualized beauty to each client.

MidFace Cheek Restoration

As we age, we see the greatest change in the mid-face and cheeks. We notice the formation of the nasolabial fold, the under-eye bags and flattening of the cheekbones. By carefully calculating and measuring the position of the fat and bone loss, we can use dermal filler to rebalance and sculpt the face. The result is not over-projected and very natural looking in appearance. Still you, Just fresher.

Under Eye Filler

Our special technique uses a blunt type device to place a particular kind of filler deep into muscle, avoiding those common concerns of small eyes or the appearance of puffy “water” bags under the eyes. Our technique uses filler with amino acids to keep the area smooth but not puffy, minimize the bruise rate and improve the color and health of the eye skin as well.

Jaw Sculpt (Women)

Early use of jawline fillers for women can delay bone loss and improve the appearance of jowling. Women are treated differently than men, namely due to the notching that forms in their jawline posterior. Those looking for gender neutral options, we welcome an open discussion with your clinical provider.

Subtle Lip Restoration

This treatment helps the thinner, dry and curled-in lips that result from the loss of hyaluronic acid and collagen that comes with ageing. We start with the nasal fold/upper lip to provide structure and treat with filler to regain a subtle improved look without looking overly plump

Filler Nose Job

As we age, our nose loses collagen, revealing divots and lumps that were previously unseen. The tip of the nose can also take on a downturned appearance. We can use filler to help straighten the nose and turn it back up, without surgery. Nose filler to this area can slow down volume and bone loss by supporting collagen growth.

Dermal Filler Smoker’s Lip Lines

Due to the loss of collagen and muscle tone around the mouth, fine lines and creases start appearing around the lips. These can be eradicated with the support of a resilient dermal filler. The filler helps to lift out the lines, without you looking enhanced or like a pillow-face. Best yet, it is done with dental anaesthesia for your comfort.

How do Dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers can be used to restore this lost volume, contour the shape of the face and enhance facial features naturally. As they add volume, they naturally lift and fill-out the skin, creating better facial harmony.

The longevity of dermal fillers varies, according to the filler that you need, your natural body metabolism and the area of the face that is enhanced.

Ideal candidates for dermal filler injections are those who have some changes to the contours of their face. If you have deeper, static wrinkles (which are present even when your face isn’t moving), you may require a combination of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments to achieve the desired outcome.

How should I prepare for my dermal filler treatment?

A week before your dermal filler treatment, avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E and fish oil supplements. These may increase bleeding and bruising. However, you can take paracetamol if needed.

If you are taking any prescribed medication, including aspirin, do not stop taking it – consult your practitioner or your GP first.

Avoid drinking alcohol 24 hours before your treatment, as this also increases the risk of bruising.

How much will my dermal fillers cost?

We only use TGA-listed pharmaceuticals, so you can be sure that the level of care is high at iDental. Treatment is usually charged per syringe and there are many brands listed on the TGA register. We only use the highest grade fillers as we expect great, predictable outcomes for our patients. We have put together some packages to assist planning. We have these listed below.
Costs do vary depending upon the filler you need and the volume used. Beware of very low prices, as these practitioners may be using a cheap form of the drug, and usually do not offer a follow up visit to review their work. At Dermal Distinction, we believe that the standard of care should be high.

Marionette and Nasolabial dermal filler

nasolabial filler in Balwyn

Why do nasolabial folds form?

Our face undergoes many changes as we get older. The mid face loses a lot of fat, but the nasolabial fold holds fat firmly. So as the areas around it change, the nasolabial fold becomes more prominent.
Each time we smile, the facial muscles also help to further create a deepening line to accentuate this fold.

What options are there for nasolabial fold reduction?

At Dermal Distinction, we will discuss your particular circumstances with you. For many patients, the best treatment will combine treatment of a few areas to reduce the prominence of both the nasolabial folds, and the marionette lines.
Using strategically placed cheekbone filler, and mid face filler helps to re-drape the facial skin.
We can also use filler to directly reduce the nasolabial fold and marionette lines.
Using muscle relaxers can also soften these lines remarkably well, and with little associated risk.


Who is suitable for nasolabial fold filler?

Nasolabial fold filler is suitable for Women and Men, where there is an increased depth of the fold, running from the nose down to the jawline
Nasolabial filler creates smooth facial contouring, reduction in jowls and reduced lower face draping.

Is there downtime for nasolabial filler?

Nasolabial fold filler has no downtime, and you can get back to work immediately. Sometimes the area might feel tender to touch, but there is no pain. Any tenderness usually resolves within a few days. The dermal filler process in Balwyn takes around 30 minutes to complete.
