Dermal filler is a smooth injectable gel that can be placed under the skin to create extra volume.

Some patients may wish to rejuvenate their features by replacing volume that has been lost over time. Meanwhile others simply want to enhance certain features like their lips or cheeks for a more aesthetically pleasing look.

Whether you want to enhance or rejuvenate, dermal fillers can plump and add volume to your features.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

Dermal filler is a smooth injectable gel that is commonly used to add volume to various areas of the face for a more pleasing look. These fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is found naturally within the skin.

But not all filler gels are the same. Unlike cheaper brands, high quality dermal fillers will combine seamlessly with your own skin to give volume that looks and feels natural. At Artisan we use TGA-approved dermal fillers. Our fillers are provided by the world’s leading suppliers to give safe, long-lasting and natural-looking results.

WHY MIGHT SOMEONE CONSIDER FILLER INJECTIONS?

Clients come to us for their first filler treatment at many different ages and for many different reasons. Many clients have an upcoming birthday or event that prompts them to come in. Others visit when they start noticing a more tired or aged appearance and they want to do something about it.

Generally speaking, fillers can either:

  • REJUVENATE: To replace lost volume. As we age, our skin loses its structure which keeps our skin looking toned and plump. Over time this can cause lines and hollowing to appear- making us look tired and aged. Fillers can ‘fill in’ lines, ‘plump’ folds in the skin and replace lost volume for beautiful, age-defying contours.
  • ENHANCE: To enhance what you’ve already got. Perhaps there are certain facial features you’d like to enhance or refine. Lip enhancements are a popular filler treatment, but did you know that fillers can also create cheek highlights for the illusion of defined cheekbones? Filler injections can even give extra chin or jawline definition and can reshape the nose without surgery.

HOW DO FILLER INJECTIONS WORK?

Cosmetic filler treatments are a different sort of treatment to muscle-relaxing injections like Botox. Dermal filler gels are used to add extra volume to the face for a more youthful look.

But not all filler gels are the same. At Artisan we use fillers that combine seamlessly with your own skin to give smooth, long-lasting and natural-looking results. We offer a variety of these gold-standard filler gels so that your Artisan Clinician can create the perfect look for you.*

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST CONSULTATION?

Your initial consultation is very important to us because it helps us to understand your concerns & goals. Taking the time to understand your goals allows us to tailor a treatment program that suits your unique needs. We want to make sure that we get your treatment just right for you!

Once you’ve consulted with your clinician you can have a treatment on the same day if you like. Alternately you can re-book for a later date.

HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?

For your first appointment we allow 45 minutes, following treatments take only 30 minutes.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Results are instant and most people can return to their normal activities straight after the procedure. It may take up to 2 weeks for any swelling to subside before you will see your end result.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?

Many people have filler treatments on their lunch break and return to work straight after. Whilst some patients notice very few side effects, others may experience bruising, bumps, mild swelling and redness. However, these effects are temporary and usually resolve within a week.

Your Artisan clinician will discuss with you in detail all possible side effects and benefits of our Filler treatments.

HOW LONG DOES FILLER LAST?

The dermal fillers we use are slowly absorbed by your body and can last for up to 24 months. *

IS IT SAFE?

The dermal fillers we use have been available in Europe since 2000 and were approved for use in the US in June 2006. Our fillers were also listed on the ARTG in 2006. Most importantly, at Artisan you only ever receive treatment from a highly qualified and experienced cosmetic injector so that the risk of medical complications is dramatically minimised.

IS IT PAINFUL?

Many patients are understandably quite nervous before their first filler treatment, but after their appointment we are very often pleased to hear these clients say that the procedure was remarkably easy for them.

Most people find the treatment very tolerable. Unlike some cosmetic filler brands, the fillers we use at Artisan actually contain an anaesthetic called lidocaine to help minimise discomfort. Topical anaesthetic gel is also available if you are particularly nervous. Please arrange to arrive 30 minutes early if you would like the anaesthetic gel.

WHY CHOOSE ARTISAN FOR YOUR DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT?

Not all filler gels are the same – there are many different brands available, all of a different quality. At Artisan we use TGA-approved dermal fillers.

We also offer a variety of these filler gels so that your Artisan Clinician can create the perfect look for you.
