Dermal Fillers for Cosmetic Enhancement

Dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments intended to refresh, lift, or glamourise your appearance. They achieve this by adding hydration and volume to provide a naturally refreshed appearance or enhance your features. At Pearl, our lady Doctors offer a free initial assessment so that you can meet with them and determine the best treatment options for your aesthetic goals. We offer a broad range of aesthetic treatment options to help with just about any concern you may have.

What are Dermal Fillers, and How do they Work?

Dermal Fillers are cosmetic enhancement gels that are injected into your skin. They have a myriad of applications for the face and body. Dermal fillers are used for six main cosmetic goals:

  1. To restore lost facial volume from ageing or weight loss.
  2. Lift or return more structure to sagging areas of the face.
  3. Glamorise or enhance the natural beauty of your features.
  4. Create facial symmetry or balance.
  5. Remove facial lines and wrinkles.
  6. Improve the appearance and condition of your skin.

So, what are the Best Dermal Fillers?

There are numerous dermal fillers on the market, each with unique treatment properties.  The main properties of various filler are described as strength, stretch, and projection power. And these are determined by how the filler is manufactured.

  • The ability of the gel to move with facial movement is referred to as stretch.
  • Strength can be defined as the ability to provide structure.
  • The amount by which the filler expands in your skin is referred to as projection.

The best dermal fillers depend on the desired cosmetic outcome.

The best dermal filler for each cosmetic goal is determined by the properties of the gel and the filler gel’s intended purpose.

For example, if a young woman wants a pout, we choose a filler with projection power, stretch, and strength.

However, in a ‘less young’ lady with lip lines,  a filler with high stretch and strength would be preferred (minus the projection).

Our Doctors understand the makeup of dermal fillers and how they work and choose the best one for your aesthetic goal. (Under Australian law, we are not permitted to name the specific brands or products that we use.)

Dermal Fillers to replace facial volume lost due to ageing or weight loss.

Volume loss is a concern as we age, and it occurs across the face and body. (Unfortunately, certain areas, such as the hips, accumulate volume). You can tell if you’re losing volume by the shadow cast in your face, which makes you appear tired even if you’re not. Replacing this volume necessitates the use of a gel with Projection + Strength.

  • Filling temple hollows on the upper face.
  • Mid-face fillers for the cheek, under-eye hollows, and the nasolabial fold.
  • Marionette lines and lip filler treatments are performed on the lower face.
  • On the body: Hand filler reduces the boney appearance of ageing hands.

Dermal Fillers to provide lifting or restore structure to sagging areas of the face.

Facial fat pads descend downwards with time and gravity, forming nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jowls, and flattening and hollowing in the cheek and under-eye area. Some filler treatments are intended to lift the skin and restore a more youthful, defined structure. (Fortification + Projection)

  • Cheek filler to lift jowls and nasolabial lines in the midface.
  • A brow lift for brow descent.
  • Jowlift  – chin fillers and jawline fillers to restore a more defined jawline.
  • Chin fillers for marionette line. 

Facial Fillers to enhance your natural features and glamorise or beautify them.

This is commonly used when people are unhappy with their natural features and want a straighter nose, fuller lips, cheeks, and a stronger chin and jawline. (Force, Projection, or Stretch). This can be a glamorising treatment for young women. 

  • Eyebrows lift in the upper face.
  • Midface: nonsurgical rhinoplasty (flat nose bridge, bumps or hook nose, broad nose) and the most common cheek enhancement procedure.
  • Lower face: Lip fillers in younger and weak people.

Facial Fillers to Create facial symmetry.

Whether naturally or as a result of surgery, some people have asymmetry that detracts from their cosmetic appearance. The goal of these treatments is to bring facial features into balance. (Force, stretch, or projection)

  • Lip filler when the upper and lower lip or the right and left lip are out of balance.
  • Nose filler when there is asymmetry, a bump, or a deficit after surgery.
  • Chin filler for weak chin.

Dermal fillers to Smooth Wrinkles and Lines.

Over time, wrinkles and lines appear on our faces, exacerbated by genetics, the sun, and other factors. Anti-wrinkle injections are the best way to treat some of these. However, some wrinkles, such as sleep lines, are best treated with dermal fillers. (Stretch) These can be used on any part of the face, including the neck and decolletage.

  • Upper lip lines or smokers lines.
  • The most common areas are the midface: nasolabial lines and the cheek or smile line.
  • Necklines and wrinkles, as well as decolletage lines, affect the body.

(Tip: PDO threads can also be used to treat static and sleep lines.)

Facial Filler for hydration and improve your skin's condition.

These filler gels are specifically designed to improve the skin’s quality. Some of the more specialised gels also contain skin-boosting nutrients. (Extreme Stretch +/- Skin Nutrient Supplementation)

  • Dermal fillers that improve the appearance of the skin can be used anywhere.
  • Body for decolletage and neck wrinkles.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
  • However, the most common area is around the eyes, where specialised cosmetic fillers can restore a more youthful appearance.

Cosmetic Fillers vs. Other Cosmetic Procedures

There is a myriad of treatment options that can be used instead (or in addition to dermal fillers). Thread lifts, PDO threads, laser treatments, radiofrequency, HIFU, and even plastic surgery are examples of these. E.g. Laser treatments such as CO2 laser can be used instead of dermal fillers for wrinkles and lines and skin tightening. Skin tightening and lifting with is also commonly performed with HIFU.

Thread Lifting – A Dermal Filler Alternative

PDO Threads and MINT Thread Lifting are alternatives to dermal fillers for volume replacement, skin tightening, and lifting. Thread facelifts and specialised PDO threads for tightening across the face, neck, and body are examples of these.

Surgery is Sometimes your Best Option.

Dermal fillers and thread lifts are excellent non-surgical treatments for mild to moderate volume loss, wrinkles, lines, and grooves that form across the face. However, these non-surgical approaches are not a replacement for surgical procedures. A facelift or eyelift is sometimes the solution!  The best thing to do is come in for a free consultation with one of our doctors or therapists. We will assess your face and provide a treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. (Alternatively, if we believe it is more appropriate, we can refer you to a Cosmetic Surgeon.)
