Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to your cheeks and lips, and smooth out any unwanted lines.
As we age, our skin loses the ability to 'bounce back', and begins to sag. This can be a source of distress for some — which is why we've invested in a range of non-invasive aesthetic surgical procedures.
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA imitates a sugar molecule which occurs naturally in your body's skin cell production. When we inject this substance into your skin, it fills in space where you've lost volume.
HA also attracts water, so the areas which have been injected will become more hydrated — leaving you fresh-faced and youthful-looking.
If you've noticed a loss of volume in your cheeks, or your lips have become noticeably smaller in recent years, then you'd be a good candidate for dermal fillers.
Not a problem for you? Sometimes, people get dermal fillers to improve their bone structure. Some clients have weak bone structures around the cheek or jaw, and book dermal filler treatments to plump and define these areas.
Dermal fillers can be injected all over the face, including to:
After we assess your skin, and created your treatment plan, we'll create an appointment for your treatment. You'll arrive on the day, with no makeup on the area to be treated. Dr. Mobin Master or Registered Nurse Kristie Phillips, will apply a topical cream to numb the area. Then, using a needle, they'll insert the dermal filler solution in a series of tiny punctures.
You'll need to do a couple of things to prepare your skin before you receive the treatment.
We'll give you a more detailed document with preparation and aftercare instructions when you come in for your consultation.
For 24 hours after your treatment, you will need to:
After the first 24 hours, you can continue to use cold compresses on and off to further reduce swelling. Don't take aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications, as these increase the potential for bruising.
If you have any questions or concerns post-treatment, you can call us or email us at any time, and we'll respond as soon as possible.
Our clients love the results of our dermal filler treatments — see for yourself.
We'd be lying if we said it was completely comfortable. When we insert dermal fillers, our clients sometimes report the feeling of a mosquito bite or slightly more intense stinging sensations.
We mostly recommend dermal fillers to firm up the jawline and cheeks. We also use it to treat bags below the eyes, or puffiness in that area.
It depends on the product, and the location. The parts of your face which experience a lot of movement are the most likely to dissolve the quickest. At the maximum effect, our dermal fillers last anywhere between 6 months to 18 months, according to the product used.
If you're getting dermal fillers for the first time, we'll start with a more temporary filler. Then, if you decide it's for you (and many of our clients do), we can move onto a longer-lasting product.
We'll need to conduct the initial consultation before making any decisions. Getting work done under the eyes is dependent on so many variables — age, skin type, diet, lifestyle, genetics... It's not a one-size-fits-all scenario.
Usually, we'll treat the cheeks and side of the eyes to draw attention away from the area beneath your eyes. We never fill in teardrops, or anywhere near the teardrops, due to complications.
Yes. Dermal fillers are instant, and you'll be able to see them working immediately after injection. It may take up to 4 weeks for the filler to reach full integration with the surrounding tissue.
Suzy Lane is the go-to makeup artists for weddings and events. She runs her own business, and she knows that makeup works best on a healthy, bright face. She doesn't talk the talk, she walks the walk, too. She recently came in to receive anti-wrinkle injections by Dr. Master Mobin, and couldn't be happier.
I was recommended by a friend to see Dr Master to fix botched fillers in my cheeks and lips from a previous Doctor. Dr Master actually spent the time with me and talked through the whole process of how to rectify my botched face.
I'm super happy with Dr Master and his work on treating my forehead wrinkles. Two weeks after, and my face looks fresh but natural — which is the look I was after. The ladies at the clinic were also very professional.
My skin has never been better. Very professional and amazing clinic. Products have all worked perfectly with my skin. It’s taken me years to find a clinic that I trust — it's such an amazing feeling. I couldn’t recommend this clinic more highly!
Doctor Master is patient, professional and not pushy. I love dealing with him. His treatments have taken years off my face. The staff make you feel comfortable, and are supportive. And the prices have always been consistent and reasonable.
Reach out to our friendly team and we'll get back to you ASAP.
