Dermal fillers are aesthetic gel-based cosmetic treatments that are injected into the skin. They are a practical, non-surgical method designed to soften creases and folds, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and increase or restore volume to the face for a more vibrant and youthful shape.
Different grades of dermal fillers are used for different areas of the face, such as the lips, cheeks and under the eyes. At Skin Boost Clinics, we only use the highest quality fillers: those that are scientifically proven, medically safe, biodegradable and reasonably long-lasting. Extremely versatile, this treatment can be used to enhance multiple areas of the face including the lips, cheeks, jawline and chin.

How It Works
Dermal fillers are injected to replace loss of facial volume and restore the normal contours of the face. The dermal filler Injections also smooth out wrinkles and skin folds and are used to enhance and beautify the natural curves and features of the face.
The injector will work closely with you to create a treatment plan and then administer the dermal filler via tiny injections under the skin. Treatment may take from 15 to 30 minutes.
After the dermal filler has been injected, there is generally no downtime required. Some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising, which disappears in a few days.
Dermal fillers are most commonly used to enhance your natural features, such as cheeks, jawline, chin, lip, tear troughs and nasolabial folds.
Dermal Filler Benefits
As we age, we lose essential collagen in our face, and it can become flatter and start to sag. Deeper grooves can develop around your mouth, eyes can look hollower, and lips become thinner. When dermal filler is injected into the target area, it draws in water and moisture to plump-up and hydrates the skin before meshing into normal skin tissue, giving you instantly smoother skin, lifted grooves and adding volume. The best bit? Results are instant meaning you’ll leave feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world.
Collagen, which is found in the network of your skin, acts like scaffolding for the face. As we age, this starts to break down. Fillers simply replace that lost collagen lifting the flatter areas and refreshes your look. Although the filler dissolves over time, it can also stimulate your body to produce its own collagen, which improves the quality of your skin over the long term. The benefits of these types of treatments can go beyond 1-2 years.
When you arrive for your free consultation, you’ll be asked to fill out a health questionnaire before the appointment, so when the cosmetic nurse meets you, she has a good understanding of who you are. We’ll go through your full history, discussing past treatments you’ve had and discuss any worries or concerns. And most importantly, the results you would like to achieve.
We are always honest with clients when assessing their suitability for dermal fillers. If the team feels other lifting procedures would be better, we’ll tell you. Once you’ve decided to have a treatment, you will be offered numbing cream for 15 minutes to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
With our light-handed technique, at the worst, you will feel a sharp scratch and a little pressure as the filler is injected. This will ease with further injections when the local anesthetic in the gel starts to work. There can be some redness and swelling that occurs but typically clears within 20 minutes so you can get right back to your busy day.
Sometimes bruising can come out a day later which can be covered with concealer. It does make sense to plan your diary to carry out lip fillers at least seven days before a big party or an event as more swelling can occur in this area.
We welcome you back to the clinic for a free follow-up at the 2-week mark to make sure you’re happy with the results.
Most patients can resume full activities following injections of dermal filler. Patients are instructed to avoid rubbing the injected area for a day (just to be extra cautious) in addition to refraining from exercise for the next 24 hours.
Fillers may last between 6-24 months depending on the amount injected and filler type.
These treatments use needles and are piercing the skin, therefore, there will be a risk of bruising and swelling.
We recommend patients to not move around the medication in the area that was injected. Most patients will be able to return to their daily activities. We recommend scheduling filler treatments when there is enough time to rest just in case there is excessive bruising.
There should be little or no pain following injection of dermal filler. Heavier fillers can cause more swelling, so patients should not schedule critical events right after getting filler.
Depending on where you are being treated, there will be minimal discomfort at the injection site. However, we have local numbing agents to assist in pain reduction.
Results for dermal filler treatment are immediate. However, the final results will be seen about 1-2 weeks after the injection. We need to let the swelling go down and let the filler settle in to get a better view of the final results.
Bruising may or may not happen. We are after all, piercing the skin with the needle. We always recommend patients to stop taking any aspirin or ibuprofen because this may cause your body to bruise more easily. Remember, we can take precautions, but we cannot guarantee that you will not bruise.
Lumps may sometimes be felt immediately afterwards, especially if you feel closely. These will either be massaged by your medical provider if needed or will settle in after 2 weeks. We always recommend our patients to ask as many questions as possible if they are unsure.
