Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a standard option at our clinic for smoothing fine lines & tell-tale wrinkles. We at The Skin Nurse Clinic strives for a natural, soft airbrushed look that furnishes you with a refreshed appearance that everyone will notice but only you will know why.

They can give sharpness back to your cheeks & recover the youthful curve to your face that looks smoother, natural & refreshed. Areas that can be operated are cheek, lines running from nose to mouth & mouth to chin, lips, temples & jawline forehead.

Our face loses volume as we age, taking on a sagging or drooping appearance. Dermal fillers restore this lost volume, sculpting your face to provide a mid-face lift. We offer numerous treatment options through dermal fillers & collagen stimulators.

We use two types of dermal fillers in the skin nurse clinic.

1. – Hyaluronic filler which is made up of a sugar and water matrix that mimics your own hyaluronic which is already present in the skin, and begins to diminish with age, illness, and weight loss.

2. – Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) filler (Radiesse/Ellanse). The beauty of these fillers is they stimulate your own collagen. Collagen is a protein that is contained within the skin that makes it look and feel firm, and youthful. It is a popular choice at the skin nurse clinics and is longer lasting then the hyaluronic filler.

*DISCLAIMER Patient experience & results may vary. These are dependent on several factors such as lifestyle, age & medical history.

  • Dermal fillers are popular alternatives to cosmetic surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are dermal fillers?

We only utilise the safest, most efficient FDA-approved, naturally biodegradable dermal fillers at The Skin Nurse Clinic. These hyaluronic acid fillers very similarly mimic the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin. They are infused deep within the tissues, for superior lift & sculpting possibilities to volumise cheeks as well as hydrate the skin.

What can dermal fillers be used for?

They can be practised most effectively & naturally to restore areas that lost volume in the mid-face that happens as we age, which often adds to sagging & jowling. Skilful placement of filler by a medically qualified practitioner can lift & support the face naturally, redefining the cheeks & adding support where it is required the most.

Nasolabial lines & marionette lines can also be operated together with the cheeks to create a lifting effect.

How long do the results last?

The effects are long-lasting but not permanent. They last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on several factors, including the patient’s age, the area treated, type of filler used, the quantity of filler used, and lifestyle.

Does it hurt?

Most patients experience only mild discomfort. A local anaesthetic cream can be applied to the skin before the treatment for a more comfortable experience. Fillers at The Skin Nurse Clinic are formed with lidocaine to minimize discomfort.

Is there any downtime?

No! You can simply go straight back to your usual routine. However, I always advise my patients that they may have some bruising or swelling, so it is best not to schedule a filler appointment right before any significant event.

What are the risks and side effects?

In general, dermal fillers are considered very safe. The most apparent reactions are swelling, redness, bruising, itching, & tenderness. These are typically mild & resolve spontaneously in 1-7 days for most of the patients. Other side effects are infrequent.

Will I look natural?

When fillers are employed in the proper amount & set in the right location, the results are entirely natural, beautiful. From the hands of a skilled provider that has a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy, the result enhances one’s own facial features.

Which filler do I need?

The selection of filler depends on the need of an individual, their surgery goals, & personal facial anatomy. We recommend booking any of our well-qualified expert for the consultations to discuss your queries.
