5 Questions About Dermal Fillers
1. What do dermal fillers do?
Dermal fillers are used to add volume to various areas of the face. They can be used to correct fine lines, creases, scars, and loss of volume in the face. They can also be used to enhance your face, by adding volume to the lips, or cheeks. Dr. Kim can even use dermal fillers as a non-surgical way to straighten up crooked noses, flatten out nose bumps. or fix button noses.
2.Dermal fillers vs anti-wrinkle injections?
Clients who are new to this area of cosmetics, sometimes think anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are the same thing. This is not true. Anti-wrinkle injections, are used to relax the muscles in the face, smooth out fine wrinkles, and prevent further wrinkles from developing. Dermal fillers are used for deeper wrinkles, to fill in the creases, as well as shaping the face, plumping up lips, cheeks, eyes, and other areas.
3. Will dermal fillers make me look fake?
No, not if you get your dermal filler treatment undertaken at Cosmos Clinic Gold Coast. We only use natural fillers, which are not permanent and can be easily dissolved if the look is not what you are after. We never over inject filler into patients, even if they ask. If Dr. Kim thinks it will look unnatural or fake, he simply won’t do it. The whole idea behind dermal fillers is to make you look younger, or improve your appearance, but still keep you looking like yourself, just a more youthful version.
By lifting various critical areas on the face, Dr. Kim can perform the true “liquid facelift”.
4. What is involved in the treatment?
Dr. Kim or our nurses will discuss options with you, and will then give the injections. The procedure will take around 30 minutes, you will be able to go back to work immediately after the treatment. There is no need for pain relief, the needles we use are very fine, and most patients report either no discomfort or only a mild pinch feeling. You will notice immediate changes, however there will be some swelling for 1-2 days before final results are shown (* can vary from patient to patient).
For some types of fillers, the results will take a few weeks to materialize, as the natural processes take place and moisture is integrated into plump up the areas treated.
5. Will I have a reaction to dermal fillers?
No. Dermal fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid, which occurs naturally in your body. At Cosmos Clinic we have had no patients who have experienced any adverse side effects to dermal filler injections
