Lip Fillers in Sydney CBD
Cosmetic dermal fillers are the ideal way to restore volume to the face, chin, lips, cheeks and jawline enabling you to quickly reverse the visible signs of ageing.
Why people benefit from dermal fillers?
As the ageing process takes hold, we lose volume in our faces. This causes the skin to become loose leading to wrinkle and folds and sagging. Dermal (lip) filler treatment in Sydney CBD is one of the most popular and effective treatments that we carry out and for most people can instantly restore volume and reverse the signs of ageing.
What are dermal fillers and how do they work?
Dermal fillers work by boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (or HA) is a natural substance found in the body particularly the skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water in order to keep your skin hydrated and lubricated but as we age, HA becomes depleted – hence thinning lips and sunken features.
Dermal lip fillers here in Sydney CBD consist of a harmless, soft, non-animal gel that closely resembles the natural hyaluronic acid we already have in our bodies. When skilfully placed under the skin and facial features, the substance boosts the skin’s existing supply of HA adding volume to the area while giving an immediate lift.
When used the right way, a dermal filler provides a natural-looking finish that enhances existing features while not affecting the natural facial expression. As your face changes over time, dermal (lip) fillers allow our Sydney CBD patients to subtly control their appearance as they age.
What can lip fillers do?
Dermal fillers can…
- Plump up thinning lips restoring them to their natural beauty
- Soften facial creases and wrinkling
- Enhance any shallow contours creating a better definition
- Reconstruct contour deformities of the face
- Improve the appearance of facial scarring
- Decreasing or removing shadowing from the lower eyelids.
Lip fillers in Sydney CBD – What you might expect
Dermal filler treatment here at Macquarie Dental is very quick and simple. After applying a topical anesthetic (cream) to the area needing work, the filler is simply injected directly into the treatment area using measured doses. Typically, this means minimal downtime (most people are able to continue with their normal daily lives within a day).
Results are generally visible immediately after treatment however they will also improve over the next 1-2 weeks.
How long does a hyaluronic filler last?
Dermal fillers are a long lasting, yet temporary fix. If you want to keep your youthful appearance, you will need to repeat the treatment moving forward. So how long does a lip filler last? Sydney CBD patients can expect treatment to last anywhere between 9 and 36 months depending upon how well you look after your skin, whether you expose it to the sun and whether you smoke.
Other commonly asked questions
Why go to a dentist for cosmetic facial treatment?
You might be forgiven for thinking that the only place to go for non-surgical cosmetic rejuvenation is a beauty clinic. However, if you think about it, dentists are perfectly positioned to provide this treatment. Modern dentistry is all about taking the holistic approach to oral care and that means taking an interest in the surrounding facial features. After all, dentists take the time to craft exquisite dental restorations and they probably wouldn’t look so good if the supporting gums, lips and facial features aren’t at their best. It’s akin to putting an exquisite painting into a tatty frame – the picture won’t be shown in the best light and neither will your smile.
As a result, the team here at Macquarie Dental have a good understanding of what personifies beauty including facial balance and symmetry and know how to bring out your beauty hidden within.
Add to this the fact that dentists carry out thousands of injections, and there you have all the more reasons to reach out to the team at Macquarie Dental for your lip fillers in Sydney CBD.
Do lip fillers or dermal fillers hurt?
Because fine needles are used, any discomfort associated with the process is usually minimal. Most patients describe the injection process as a tiny pinch lasting only a few seconds. To aid comfort, a topical anesthetic or local anaesthetic can also be used when necessary. For a few days after the area might be a little tender but this generally dissipates quickly allowing patients to continue their lives as they normally would.
How safe are lip fillers?
The HA gel itself is composed mostly of water so it is deemed safe to use. Once injected into the skin, the body accepts it naturally and allows for normal facial expression and a naturalised look.
How do you prepare for treatment?
Whether you are having lip fillers here in Sydney CBD or anti-wrinkle treatment you should…
