Dermal fillers are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that smooths out facial wrinkles and folds to create a more natural, youthful appearance. Cosmetic dermal fillers R and P are made from a clear gel that is composed from naturally found skin substances. The dermal filler injections are inserted into the treatment area and are a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for the treatment of:
- Wrinkle correction
- Lip enhancement
- Deep facial folds (around the mouth, nose and mouth corners)
- Facial shaping (cheek enhancement, nose shaping, chin shaping)
- Smile lines and thin superficial lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead
These cosmetic fillers contain hyaluronic acid which enables water to be bound to the skin resulting in a lifting and restoring of the skin’s natural volume and elasticity. The fillers hyaluronic acid works with the body’s natural hyaluronic acid to create a more natural result as opposed to other wrinkle injections.

Your own Fat as a Filler.
The use of Dermal Fillers to reverse signs of facial ageing is very popular. Currently there are many off the shelf fillers that are very good. But they are temporary and need replacing every 12 months. Using your own fat as a filler is very appealing for 2 reasons. It is your own tissue, it is in abundance and has the potential to be permanent. Fat can be used to restore facial volume depletion associated with ageing. If you are looking for something more long-term, check out our information about face lifts.
Benefits of fat transfer
- Longer -lasting compared to Dermal Fillers
- Cost Effective when combined with other surgical procedures and when large volume loss needs correction
- No risk of allergy
Disadvantages of fat transfer
- Not all the transferred fat survives, 30 – 50% gets absorbed over time
- The longevity of fat survival is not known
Fat from the abdomen around the Umbilicus (belly button) is preferred because the fat cells from here are less likely to be absorbed. Modern techniques and specialised instruments to harvest and inject fat have improved the results.
Deep volume injections usually yield the best result. Fat Transfer can be used as a stand alone procedure or as a useful adjunct to eyelid surgery, facelift or midlface lift.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Consider Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are an incredibly popular option for non-surgical cosmetic enhancements since they work with your body’s natural structure to help enhance collagen and elastin production in the skin. Many of the fillers use naturally-occurring ingredients like hyaluronic acid to bond with the water within your skin and cells to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and create a fuller, plumper appearance.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
There are three main ingredients found in the various types of popular dermal fillers in Bondi: Botulinum toxin, hyaluronic acid, and your body’s own fat. Each works differently to reduce wrinkles and other signs of ageing in the skin. One of our most popular options uses botulinum toxin to temporarily freeze the muscles in the face that cause crow’s feet, marionette lines, and forehead creases. Injectables with hyaluronic acid use this naturally-occurring ingredient to help bind moisture to your skin cells, producing a fuller, youthful result. Finally, fat transfers can be used like injectable fillers but utilise your body’s own fat to enhance features on your face.
Are Dermal Fillers Right For Me?
Cosmetic dermal injections are becoming increasingly popular in Sydney and throughout Australia. Its incredible and often long-lasting anti-ageing benefits make this a widely considered alternative to traditional plastic surgery. This procedure is ideal for patients who are tired of seeing signs of ageing in their skin or around their facial features, such as sagging skin, wrinkles, deflated cheeks or lips, and dullness. They can also be used as a preventative treatment in younger patients who wish to combat fines lines early.
Will Receiving Injectables Hurt or Scar?
Our goal is to provide patients with comfortable and relaxing spa treatments that help to enhance their skin’s natural beauty and reduce the signs of ageing in their features. We offer a topical or local anaesthetic to help reduce any pain or discomfort during injectables or other non-invasive procedures.
