Dermal Fillers (Allergan only)
At the Injectables, we offer the very latest in dermal fillers and techniques to keep our clients looking youthful & beautiful. In simple terms, the face can be divided into three main areas; the upper, mid and lower facial areas.
Dermal fillers are used for a variety of treatments in these areas with a focus on mid and lower face areas.
Dermal Fillers for the Upper Face:
The main areas of treatment for the upper face area include the temples and the brows. These procedures are used mainly for temporal hollowing and for a lateral brow lift through the use of dermal fillers (can also be achieved through use of anti-wrinkle injections) depending on the individual client.
Dermal Fillers for the Mid-Face:
The main areas of treatment in the mid-face are the tear troughs and the area where the eye lids and the cheeks meet (lid cheek junction) as well as sculpting volume into the cheek area itself. These treatments are used most often to improve appearance of deteriorating cheek volume, which occurs naturally with age and often cause a ‘flattening’ of the face as well as sunken and or tired eyes.
Dermal Fillers for the Lower Face:
The main areas of treatment for the lower third of the face include lips, the nasolabial folds (border of your cheeks extending from your nose to either side of your mouth) and the jaw line (including pre-jowl sulcus). These treatments are most often used to smooth or embellish contour lines of the lips or jaw line. Dermal Fillers can also be used for lip enhancement to add volume and improve lip definition in younger lips. For rejuvenation, the vertical lines around your lips may also be treated. This gives a more youthful appearance and will also help prevent lipstick bleeding.
Dermal Fillers are also used to treat deeper wrinkle lines that anti-wrinkle injectables cannot alter.
The versatility of dermal filler treatments available and the experience of RN Sarah Guerrera allows a custom recommendation for treatment that addresses your specific needs.

Allergan Dermal Fillers range in price from $500-550 per mL and every one of them contains a built in local anaesthetic to relieve any minor discomfort you may experience during injection. We also use a topical numbing cream and ice the area.
Fillers can plump small areas such as the lips and brows and volumise larger areas like the cheeks and jawline. They can be used in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections, which relax facial muscles or with other treatments that restore skin tone to rejuvenate the whole face. Discuss your personal concerns with RN Sarah Guerrera to find a solution that fits your needs.
DIFFERENT AREAS REQUIRE DIFFERENT FILLERS
Dermal fillers come in a range of different consistencies, from very light and soft for delicate and mobile areas like the lips, to denser types that are used in deeper folds. The area, depth of placement and unique lifting and smoothing properties of the different fillers will be discussed with you by RN Sarah Guerrera during consultation.
Dermal fillers produce instant results – a typical first procedure takes between 15 and 30 minutes – and you should be able to return to your daily activities right away.
Dermal fillers are usually well tolerated and durable, lasting from 6 to 24 months, depending on the product used and what area is being treated.
All of our Allergan dermal fillers also contain an anaesthetic, which can reduce any minor discomfort you may experience during injection.
