Dermal Fillers & BoTOX 

What is the purpose of dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular means of helping to restore facial skin to its original youthful appearance. This minimally invasive procedure can often give a more naturally youthful appearance than surgical face lifts. Dermal fillers help compensate for the loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin caused by aging.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers restore lost volume to aging skin, and work to soften or eliminate wrinkles, make lips fuller and younger looking, enhance shallow facial contours, and even improve the appearance of recessed scars. In short, they rejuvenate one’s appearance, restoring youthful zest to the smile.

At St Heliers Dental Centre, we recommend two treatment sessions over several weeks to resolve contour and volume issues and to achieve optimal results in the softening and elimination of fine lines and wrinkles. Our goal is simply to help restore your natural beauty and confidence.

How long do Dermal fillers last?

St Heliers Dental Centre uses the highly acclaimed Restyline Dental Fillers, which need to be renewed after six months. We will refrain from the use of permanent dermal fillers until such time as we are 100 percent confident that they are medically safe and efficacious.

Are there side effects from dermal fillers?

Apart from the possibility of temporary discomfort, dermal filler treatment can sometimes cause bruising and swelling in the treated area. Naturally, exercise should be avoided immediately before and after treatment, and refraining from the use of aspirin and anti-inflammatories before treatment helps minimize the incidence of bruising.

In the normal course of events it is very unusual for people to experience any problems after the first two days. Being allergic to dermal fillers is rare but possible. In the highly unlikely event of residual lumps or over-correction of a wrinkle, St Heliers Dental Centre expertise will quickly expedite the necessary adjustment.

Is dermal fillers treatment painful?

St Heliers Dental Centre’s experienced oral health capability and our pain-free commitment to dentistry, means that we take every precaution to ensure your mental and physical comfort at all times. Many dermal filler patients do not even need anaesthetics, but as dental practitioners, we have access to a range of efficacious nerve blocks and anaesthetic creams. Rest assured, your physical comfort and complete peace of mind are always our top priorities.

What Is the cost of dermal fillers treatment?

Dermal Fillers treatment with the widely recommended Restyline procedure generally costs $1500.00 plus GST. However, we do offer an obligation-free consultation to assess and plan any treatment you may choose to take advantage of, so there will never be any surprises regarding cost of treatment.

How does dermal fillers treatment differ from Botox treatment?

Botox injections are used to reduce muscle movement in the face in order to prevent further wrinkles from forming. Restyline Dermal Fillers, on the other hand, provide additional volume to aging skin, softening or eliminating wrinkles, giving lips more body, and enhancing areas like sunken cheeks.

How long does a treatment with dermal fillers take?

Once a thorough obligation-free consultation has ensured that Restyline Dermal Fillers are right for you, the actual treatment can usually be completed in fifteen minutes. That’s another good reason for you to make an appointment for your consultation today.
