Benefits of Professional and Affordable Dermal Fillers in Perth
Dermal fillers are a popular non-surgical treatment for lifting sagging skin, softening folds and creases and correcting volume loss in women and men. Cosmetic injectors have been using fillers successfully for facial rejuvenation and augmentation for many decades. Recent innovation in dermal filler technology has improved safety, performance and longevity even more.
If maintaining a youthful appearance is important to you, Restoration Clinic can help you reach your facial aesthetic goals. Dermal filler can refresh your overall appearance without surgery. Your injector can rejuvenate your under-eye area by filling in hollow tear troughs and camouflaging dark circles. The cheek area can be lifted or made to look more defined. New robust fillers can even give your jawline more definition and augment the chin. Finally, lip enhancement can add volume, definition and projection or simply hydrate lip lines.
Advanced injection techniques used in our clinic result in less swelling and bruising. This allows our patients to have injections done on their lunch break and return to work with little evidence that they had anything done. Additionally, dermal fillers in Mt Hawthorn have become so specialised and sophisticated that they can produce surgical-quality results in only a few visits. The team at Restoration Clinic is here to answer all your questions about how fillers can help you look more radiant and youthful.
What is a dermal filler
Dermal fillers can go by different names. They can be referred to as injectable fillers, facial fillers, cosmetic fillers, cosmetic injectables or just injectables. They fall into three categories: temporary, semi-permanent and permanent. At Restoration Clinic we work primarily with temporary fillers for a number of reasons, safety being the number one consideration. However, we do have available semi-permanent and permanent fillers. The advantage of resorbable fillers is that they are extremely biocompatible, last up to 24 months and can be reversed if necessary.
A traditional needle or cannula (blunt tip needle) is typically used to administer dermal filler under the skin. Each one has its own merits and your physician will inform you which technique is most suitable for you. Also modern dermal filler is available in different molecular viscosities (gel thickness) and textures, which allows injectors to sculpt and contour the different parts of the face with extraordinary precision and skill.
How can dermal fillers improve my appearance?
Dermal fillers can help your appearance by:
• Smoothing lines around your nose and mouth (perioral lines)
• Reversing volume loss and deflation in cheeks and temples
• Softening vertical lip lines (and the area above the lip)
• Improving lip plumpness, definition and projection
• Smoothing out a chin crease
• Correcting facial asymmetry
• Evening out an uneven nose bridge or bump
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers work by replacing lost volume with a natural gel. Specialised dermal fillers can be placed under the muscle (on top of bone) to elevate facial features and give support to areas such as cheeks, jawline and nose. Deeper injections can also be done to improve nasolabial folds and to contour the cheekbones. Superficial placement of filler in soft tissue is a common technique for softening lines and augmenting the lips. A good knowledge of facial anatomy is vital for practitioners performing deep injections.
Are there different types of dermal fillers?
One of the most common types of temporary fillers is made from a natural sugar molecule which we all have in our bodies. It’s found in high concentrations in our skin, joints, and eyes. This molecule has a unique property of being able to hold 1000 times its own weight in water and to attract and bind water molecules. This makes it extremely useful in skincare for keeping the skin hydrated and giving it volume.
The advantage of this filler in particular is that it’s highly biocompatible and allergic reactions are extremely rare. The body will gradually break down these molecules and the skin will return to its previous condition. If you love the results of your treatments then you’ll require maintenance injections every 6-24 months, depending on the type of product you choose. Natural fillers can be layered and the same area can be retreated multiple times with no adverse effects. These products have proven to be excellent dermal fillers in Perth for smoothing wrinkles and folds, contouring facial features and restoring volume.
In the semi-permanent category is another type of filler made from calcium based microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. These fillers work by stimulating your body to produce collagen around the microspheres, gradually improving facial volume and definition over several months. They tend to last upwards of 18 months and require maintenance injections, just like the resorbable fillers.
How long do dermal fillers last?
The placement of the filler can also affect how long it will last. Areas with more movement, such as the mouth, nasolabial folds and marionette lines, will generally result in filler breakdown much faster than cheeks, temples or chin. Also the denser the filler and the deeper the injection, the longer it can last. To extend the results of your treatment, your doctor can adjust the quantity and injection depth to ensure optimal outcomes.
Can a beauty therapist administer dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are dispensed by prescription and only a certified medical doctor is sufficiently qualified to advise you with treatment. Even though it’s intended for cosmetic reasons, filler injections are still considered a medical procedure that calls for training and expertise. To achieve natural-looking results, select a doctor with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, and a keen aesthetic eye.
At the Restoration Clinic, established in 1999, we have performed thousands of successful dermal fillers in Perth. We have a proven history in cosmetic treatment and substantial experience performing filler injections.

What side-effects can I expect?
As with any cosmetic procedures the possibility of side-effects does exist. You may experience some redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site. The severity of bruising and swelling can depend on injection technique and areas being treated. Other possible side-effects include: lumpiness, inflammation and infection. In rare cases you may suffer an allergic reaction to the filler. It’s possible that the dermal filler may be injected into a vein or artery. If this happens, a dissolving agent will be administered instantly to reverse the filler.
We recommend booking your dermal filler injections on a day when you can relax at home afterwards and not have to worry about going outside. You might be more comfortable applying ice-packs to your treated areas to minimise swelling and bruising. If you usually take non steroidal anti-inflammatory medications or other blood thinners, vitamin E, Fish Oil or St John’s Wort, you should discuss this with your doctor prior to treatment. It’s recommended to stop taking these medications for two weeks prior to your dermal injections as these medications have been associated with an increased possibility of bruising and bleeding.
What to expect during your treatment with dermal fillers in Perth
During your consultation, your doctor will assess the area of the face you wish to enhance, as well as review your health history. Although the risks associated with dermal fillers are minimal, it’s important to disclose your clinical background fully before treatment. Health conditions such as allergies, skin and neurological disease or medications that you’re taking can influence your safety and the results.
The second step is the injection procedure. Your skin will be cleansed and disinfected, and you may be offered a topical or injected anaesthetic to numb the location before the injections. The anaesthetic will ensure that the procedure is comfortable and as pain-free as possible.
Depending on the products being used and the treatment area, you’ll probably see results right away. Some patients may experience bruising and swelling immediately or after several hours. Some areas swell more than others, such as lips, which can swell considerably more than other parts of the face. All swelling is short-lived and should resolve within 48 hours. You can return to work right after your treatment; however, you may want to skip the gym or other high energy activity for the rest of the day.
