If you are looking to enhance your looks with a completely natural substance that achieves a visible, long-lasting aesthetic result, then there are several products available.  Due to TGA regulations, the names of this substance cannot be advertised.

These wrinkle fillers (as they are collectively called) are able to define facial contours, give fuller lips or smooth out facial lines. Used with other treatments, they can effectively rejuvenate and restore youthfulness.

The bio-ceramics are substances that encourage your own collagen to grow, however as they are generally longer lasting than the traditional wrinkle fillers, our cosmetic doctors will insist that you undergo treatment with wrinkle fillers first:

a) to ensure you like the result, and

b) to allow you to get comfortable with the cosmetic technology.

You are able to direct how you would like your treatments conducted, for example you may like to have your lips completed in one session, and your nasolabial (lines from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth) folds in the next.

Each treatment is discussed with our doctors, who will advise you on the amount that may be needed to gain the effect you want.

The amount of wrinkle filler used is dependent on the particular area that you would like to treat, what condition your skin and facial collagen is in, what level of correction you would like to achieve.

How long does treatment last?

The length of time that wrinkle filler treatments last depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age – as well as the type and amount of product used.

After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months, depending on the individual and the product used.

Wrinkle filler treatment of the lips can last up to six months.

What are the risks associated with wrinkle filler injections?

Wrinkle fillers have been used in over 10 million treatments worldwide during the last fifteen years. Because the wrinkle filler resembles the substances that occur naturally in the body, the risk of allergic reaction is minimal. However, there are risks involved with any cosmetic injectable treatment, and these will be explained fully during your consultation.
