Part of the natural ageing process involves the loss of volume from the face. This leads to lines on the face and a downward dropping of the balance in the face. Some of these areas cannot be corrected with anti-wrinkle injections, as the correction of the underlying structures (volume loss) is required – this is where dermal fillers can help.
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin to hydrate, add fullness and re-volumize areas of the face. Fillers can also be used to add volume and 'plump' up lips. At Port Macquarie Aesthetic Clinic, we aim to use dermal fillers in a subtle, non-detectable way. We do not aim to enhance – it's all about giving back the natural structure of a patient's face. Dermal and lip fillers can last nine to 24 months depending on the areas treated and product used.
