Dermal fillers are small injections of gel that fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. Dermal fillers are made from a natural substance which is responsible for attracting and maintaining water in the skin. For this reason, the fillers can be used to create beautiful volume and contouring throughout the face and body.
As we age, we lose volume in our face, which can make the face appear sunken and hollow. Derma fillers help plump facial tissue and smooths out facial lines and wrinkles which makes the skin look younger. Dermal fillers work by boosting the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin.
You can expect to see immediate results from dermal filler. However, swelling occurs with every treatment which needs to be taken into consideration.
We have a range of different filler options available which our Doctor or Nurse will talk you through to ensure you get the product best suited for YOU!

Statistically 1 in 20 will bruise, but everyone is different, if you bruise easily you could bruise with filler treatment. There are also a few things that can make you more likely to bruise, if possible for up to 2 weeks prior to your appointment cease consumption of green tea and alcohol.
We recommend having any treatment a minimum of 4 weeks before an event, this gives enough time for any potential bruising or swelling to subside and any adjustments to be made.
The bulk of the swelling with subside within 24-48 hours and the site will completely settle within 2 weeks. After treatment it is recommended you ice the area, there are also some other things you can do to minimise swelling which you can talk about with your Doctor or Nurse on the day.
You can exercise post filler, although we don’t recommend it as it will make swelling worse, but will not affect the result.
It is recommended you do not exercise or consume alcohol for 24 hours post treatment.
We recommend waiting at least 24-48 hours if you can for short distance flights and two weeks for long distance flights (further than New Zealand).
