Dermal fillers are used to “plump” the skin where there has been volume loss over time. For example, the lip borders, cheeks and marionette lines at the corners of the mouth. The dermal fillers used at Dental South are TGA approved and are made of safe and biocompatible substances that naturally occur in the skin (hyaluronic acid). Procedures are comfortable as a topical and local anaesthetic is used and the dermal filler also contains lidocaine to aid in minimal post-operative bruising.
How long does it last? Depends on the site of filler placement. Lips, generally 3-6 months.
Treatment time: 30 minutes Down time: 1-2 hours
