The treatment itself is quick and relatively painless - we promise!
Give me the lowdown
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances made of Hyaluronic Acid injected into the skin at different depths to help restore lost volume, fill in lines and wrinkles, soften creases and highlight facial contours. They can also add volume, structure and symmetry to the face, giving you a rejuvenated and younger looking appearance! The treatment itself is quick and relatively painless, however you may feel a little discomfort for a few seconds as the needle enters the skin. We can use a topical anaesthetic to numb the area prior to your treatment to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
What areas can be treated?
Common areas we treat include: Lips Cheeks Jawline Chin Temples Tear Troughs (under the eyes) Nasolabial folds (lines between mouth and nose) Marionette lines (lines around mouth) Neck lines
Is it right for me?
A thorough consultation with one of our Registered Cosmetic Nurses is essential prior to your treatment to ensure patient suitability. This treatment is not suitable for babes who are currently pregnant, breastfeeding or trying to conceive. Certain medical conditions may also preclude you from this treatment.
Did somebody say benefits?

How many treatments will I need?
At SC we have a full face assessment approach, which means during your initial consultation we’ll map out a plan that you’re comfortable with. This plan can be broken down into different treatments according to what is best for you and your individual aesthetic goals, lifestyle and budget.
How long will results last?
Dermal filler results generally last about 9-24 months. The longevity of your results will depend on a number of factors like age, individual metabolism, the type of filler used, budget and location of the injections.
Is there any downtime?
Very minimal downtime! Depending on your dermal filler treatment you can expect common side effects like swelling and bruising but these will subside anywhere between a few days to a week post-treatment.
Handy to know
Dermal fillers are made of a substance that is naturally produced in the body called Hyaluronic Acid. This substance attracts water to provide hydration to the skin, replenish lost volume and help contour facial features.
SC Pro Tip
To ensure you get the most out of your dermal filler results, always follow the aftercare instructions provided by your cosmetic nurse to help reduce common side effects like swelling and bruising after your treatment.
