Today, men and women don’t have to go under the knife to look their best. With advanced, modern-day cosmetic discoveries, it is easy for people to slice off years off years from their facial appearance.
At The Derm Lab, we are so concerned about helping people look their best with our state of the heart, advanced dermal filler treatment – a cutting edge kind of procedure in the whole of Australia. Our team of professional injectors are well-trained in the art of aesthetic judgment and work closely with our patients to help them achieve the best possible result.
Unlike Anti-Wrinkle Treatment, which entails relaxing the facial muscles to reduce ageing signs like fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and expression lines, Dermal Fillers are cosmetic injectable substance injected into the skin dermis to improve the skin volume and appearance.
Dermal Fillers gives the skin its youthful appearance by plumping out wrinkles and other ageing signs while filling the empty void that loss of fat left on the face. Unlike surgical procedures and other injectable, the result of Dermal Fillers is instant.
There are different Dermal Filler options, with some helping to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and expression lines around the mouth. Another type enhances the mid-face and cheeks. Some are designed to plump and sculpt the lips, and others are designed to add life to saggy skin on the hand.
Depending on the goals of our patient, our professionals work hand-in-hand with them to select the best Dermal Filler that is suitable for their skin condition.
Dermal Fillers requires minimal downtime, and it is a painless procedure, enabling a quick return to social activities and place of work. The result usually lasts for up to a year or two depending on the area of the face the treatment was administered and the type of filler used.
Technology has blessed us with a lot of effective treatment options. People need not go through severe pain to look youthful anymore. With injectable fillers, people can now look years younger almost instantly.
As people age, the rate of collagen production depletes. The skin loses its ability to snap back to its original position, leaving creases and ageing signs on the face. One reason why people choose dermal fillers is that it has no downtime and healing process is fast. Although slight skin redness and swelling may occur on the filler site, they soon fade off within a few days.
People don’t also have to work on their whole face anymore. With dermal fillers, the section of the patient’s face that requires a touch up is filled with injectable formulation which in turn provides a plumper, rejuvenated, and youthful appearance.

As people age, the skin loses its contour and volume. The soft tissue and bone together with the depleting collagen fibre in the dermis all contribute to saggy skin. With dermal fillers, the lost fat and volume are restored with skin-friendly injectable, supporting the skin for a youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers aim to perfectly contour and improve the overall appearance of different parts of the face. For instance, the cheeks could be injected to make them plumper and the face more attractive. The nose may be injected to enhance the contour and the shape. The lips and other parts of the face may be injected for a more defined youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers typically last for six months to 2 years, depending on the filled area and the type of dermal fillers used. Our professional injectors work together with our patients to select the most suitable fillers.
Dermal filler can be a painful process if entrusted into the hands of a non-professional injectors. More reason why most Australians prefer The Derm Lab.
The whole process is effortless for professionals with years of experience. The entire procedure involves a few tiny injections placed directly into the skin for up to 30 minutes. You can go to work almost immediately after the process. Our fillers come with local anesthetics to make you feel comfortable while receiving your treatment. Plus, further anesthetics are administered to increase the numbness and ward off any sign of pain.
The level of the procedure depends on the depth of patient’s aging signs and the part of the face that needs to be filled.
There are no procedures without its side effects. You may experience redness and slight bruises on the site of the injection for a day or two. If there is swelling (which is not common), applying a cold compression will ease them off.
Dermal Fillers are designed to combat every sign of aging while rejuvenating and properly contouring the face. Unlike other anti-ageing procedures, dermal fillers make the face more appealing and suppler with no downtime.
Although the results are temporary, it is a fast procedure with instant results.
After dermal filler procedure, patients should reduce the amount of water intake to best manage swellings (in case there are any). Also, the use of blood thinning medications like warfarin, fish oil, and aspirin should be halted for some days.
The treated area should never be rubbed to avoid inflammation and infection. Patients should also avoid direct contact with sunlight for some few days.
