DERMAL FILLERS WITH DR SABER
Volume loss is one of the most common effects of ageing. As the skin loses volume and elasticity, lines and wrinkles become more visible and certain areas of the face begin to sag. By restoring volume to key areas, it’s possible to achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
Along with having a personalised and thorough skincare regime, dermal fillers are one of the best ways to safely restore volume to key areas of the face. In less than an hour, patients can instantly enhance some of their best features.
A thorough consultation with Dr Saber can help determine the possibilities and effectiveness of getting dermal fillers at our Hoppers Crossing clinic..
DERMAL FILLERS EXPLAINED
Dermal fillers imitate a naturally occurring substance within the body that binds to water. The body produces this molecule to lubricate joints and other moveable parts of the body. It also helps regulate water levels in the skin, hence its revitalising effects.
Before dermal fillers can be administered, your specific skin concerns will be discussed, and your medical history reviewed to ensure you are a suitable candidate for treatment. Depending on the concerns and number of areas that need to be addressed, patients will require a different number of injections to achieve the desired result. Excluding the time required for your initial consultation, the average filler session won’t take longer than 20 minutes. Even though discomfort is very mild during treatment, a topical anaesthetic can be applied if necessary.
It’s common for there to be some swelling and redness following your session but these effects will subside within a few hours and can be covered with mineral makeup if need be. However, it’s best to leave the skin free of makeup for the first day if possible.
Dermal fillers are ideal for adults who want to reverse the effects of volume loss. Along with minimising lines and wrinkles, patients who want to add more definition to certain areas of the face can also be ideal candidates for this treatment.
It should be noted that there’s no need to undergo treatment on the same day as your consultation with Dr Saber – you will always be given time to think things over.

What are the Benefits to Dermal Filler Treatment?
Getting dermal fillers in Melbourne offers a number of benefits that help you stay more confident and radiant in the long run. Some of these benefits include:
- The volume of the face is lost as we grow older. Fillers help regain the lost volume, making you look more youthful.
- The symmetry of the face that is lost due to facial wrinkles and other signs of aging is countered with the help of fillers.
- Fillers help restore fullness to the face, giving it a more youthful and replenished appearance.
- Dermal fillers help rehydrate areas that they are administered in while also contouring the face for a more refreshed look.
RESULTS DERMAL FILLERS
The results of your dermal filler injections will be visible immediately. However, it’s important to wait for any swelling to subside before you will see the final results of your treatment. How long your results last will depend on what type of filler was used but on average, results can be maintained for six to twelve months. Thereafter, if patients want to retain their results, top-up injections will be required. If at any stage you decide to discontinue the use of dermal fillers, the treated area will gradually return to its original state. If for any reason you aren’t satisfied with your results, an enzyme can be used to dissolve the filler.
To achieve the best possible outcome, it’s important to not touch the treated area for several hours – this will prevent the product from migrating. Extreme temperatures and excessive sweating should also be avoided for a day or two until the filler has settled. In terms of sleeping, it’s best to sleep on your back for a night or two to avoid applying pressure to the treated area. When cleansing your face or applying makeup several hours after your treatment, it’s important to be as gentle as possible.
It’s not uncommon for dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections to be considered one and the same but this isn’t the case. Dermal fillers are specifically used to smooth out the skin by restoring any volume that has been lost. Anti-wrinkle injections, on the other hand, are designed to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and deep expression lines, resulting in a more youthful appearance. If need be, both types of cosmetic injections can be administered at once if the patient would like to reduce lines and wrinkles and increase volume in the face.
There are very few side effects associated with dermal fillers because the ingredients are naturally produced by the body. Patients can expect some mild redness and swelling after a treatment but this will be gone within a few hours. If you do struggle with cold sores, it’s recommended that you start using the necessary medication several days before your session to prevent a breakout after the fact. Dr Saber will take you through all of the potential risks associated with dermal fillers during your consultation at our Hoppers Crossing clinic so that you know what to expect. However, if all the necessary aftercare instructions are followed, there is no reason to be concerned about side effects.
How long a dermal filler treatment lasts depends heavily on the quality of the filler you opt for in Melbourne, the area being treated, and the patient’s rate of absorbing and metabolising the fillers. The usual duration that fillers last range from 6-18 months.
You can get a better idea of how long the treatment could last for you from the doctor who conducts your skin analysis and performs your treatment.
