A dermal filler is a substance designed to improve the shape and tone of the skin. It’s injected into the skin in a simple non-surgical procedure. There are many different substances that can be used; today most suitable compounds are composed of ingredients which occur naturally in the skin. Dermal fillers have many important therapeutic medical uses, but they also play a vital role in revitalizing skin’s aesthetic qualities, especially the face.
Dermal fillers can be used to make improvements to virtually any part of the face, including the cheeks, lips, eyelids, brows, nose, chin, the nasolabial folds, the corners of the mouth, and any areas where wrinkles appear.

Dermal fillers are available at all four of SKIN CLUB’s Melbourne offices – Beaumaris, Berwick, Templestowe, and Toorak.
The skin of the face inevitably loses volume over time as part of the aging process. This can result in wrinkles, folds, and other unwanted changes of shape. By restoring lost volume, dermal fillers can effectively rejuvenate the face. Below are descriptions of some typical non-surgical procedures that include dermal fillers:
* Lip enhancement
* Filling tear troughs
* Cheek Enhancement
* Jowl reduction
* Forehead contouring
* Reduction of frown lines
* Nasal reshaping
* Frown line reduction
* Concealing eye bags
* Brow lifting
* Non-surgical facelifts

SKIN CLUB uses a range of different temporary dermal filler materials. Many are constituted from organic ingredients that are identical to those produced naturally by the skin. Fillers generally last anywhere between four and 24 months. Doctor Sharma has trained out practitioners in the skilled application of dermal fillers to achieve a variety of different aesthetic effects, and they are careful to select the ideal material for each procedure.
What Are Some Skin Issues That Can Be Resolved With Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of the lips, brows, cheeks, chin, jowls, forehead, and nasolabial folds (the indentations which run from the outside of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth).
Fillers are also commonly applied beneath the eyebrows to produce a lifting effect or to fill in hollows left by a loss of dermal volume. Dermal fillers can play a key role in reshaping the nose without the need for surgery.
The hollows beneath the lower eyelid which form over time are called tear troughs, and they can be smoothed with dermal fillers. This procedure creates a smoother, more subtle transition between the eyes and the cheek, eliminating the appearance of hollow or baggy eyes.
For application to the cheeks and the nasolabial folds, the dermal filler of choice is usually a thick, gel-like material or Radiesse. Gel fillers have a rather short lifespan (generally around four to six months) and can be removed; Radiesse lasts longer in the body and produces increased volume. It is, however, more expensive.
Dermal fillers are harder to apply to fine lines, which call for extremely fine filler material. Laser skin resurfacing often delivers better results in reducing or eliminating fine lines permanently, but it’s a more intensive procedure that calls for a (brief) recovery period.
