Whether you’re looking for an overall freshen up or have a specific concern you’d like to address, dermal filler injections can be used to reduce tired looking eyes or dark circles, firm the jawline  and jowls, plump the lips or rejuvenate the area surrounding the lips and reverse the effects of aging by lifting and plumping areas where collagen has depleted.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

Dermal filler is a smooth injectable gel made from a natural complex sugar called Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is naturally found within the human skin. It seamlessly combines with our skin’s own collagen and elastin to provide structure and elasticity. Not all filler gels are the same. The dermal filler gels we use at Artisan are TGA-approved and provided by the world’s leading suppliers to deliver safe, long lasting and natural-looking results. We also offer a variety of these gold-standard filler gels so that your Artisan Clinician can create the perfect look for you.*

WHY MIGHT SOMEONE CONSIDER FILLER INJECTIONS?

Clients come to us for their first dermal filler treatment at many different ages for many different reasons. Some clients are prompted by an upcoming event or a birthday milestone, others like to have regular treatments to maintain a youthful appearance.

TO REJUVENATE: As we age, our skin loses volume and elasticity as substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid deplete. Over time this can lead to the formation of wrinkles, folds and hollowing- making us look tired and stressed. Fillers can be used to ‘fill in’ wrinkles, ‘plump’ folds in the skin and replenish lost volume for beautiful, youthful contours.

TO ENHANCE: Or perhaps there are certain facial features you’d like to enhance or refine. Lip enhancements are a popular filler treatment, though fillers can also be used to create cheek highlights for beautiful cheekbones, to enhance the chin for patients wanting more chin definition or even for reshaping the nose without surgery.

HOW DO FILLER INJECTIONS WORK?

You may be familiar with cosmetic injections that work to relax wrinkle-causing muscles. Cosmetic filler treatments are a different sort of treatment. Treatment involves the dermal filler gel being expertly placed below the skin’s surface to ‘fill in’ facial wrinkles, ‘plump’ folds in the skin, replace lost volume or to enhance certain features. The filler gels we use at Artisan are specifically formulated to combine seamlessly with our skin’s own collagen and elastin to give smooth, long-lasting and natural-looking results.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST CONSULTATION?

Your initial consultation is very important to us as it allows us to understand your concerns & rejuvenation goals so that we can individually tailor your treatment program, monitor your progress and ensure that you achieve the refreshed appearance you’re looking for– and always with a natural looking outcome in mind.

You are welcome to go ahead with a treatment on the day of your initial consultation. The procedure is non-surgical and involves the administration of injections by one of our experienced and fully qualified medical professionals.

HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?

For an initial consultation we allow 45 minutes, subsequent treatments take only 30 minutes.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Results from dermal filler treatments can be seen immediately and the majority of people resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?

Many people have filler treatments during their lunch break and return to work immediately after. Though, whilst some patients experience very few side effects, others may experience bruising, bumps, mild swelling and redness. In the vast majority of cases, 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 reabsorbed by your body and can last for up to 24 months. Upon consultation your Artisan clinician will be able to advise how many treatments may be required for you to achieve your rejuvenation goals.*

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. They were also listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (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. The dermal filler gels we use at Artisan are TGA-approved and provided by the world’s leading suppliers to deliver safe, long lasting and natural-looking results. We also offer a variety of these filler gels so that your Artisan Clinician can create the perfect look for you.
