Facial Dermal Fillers Can Restore That Youthful Glow & Your Appearance
From the age of around 25, our skin begins to lose facial volume and skin tone, which changes the overall look of our faces. Dermal fillers can be used for people who want an overall fresh, lifted appearance to their face, or for people who want to target specific concerns, including tired-looking eyes, thin lips, hollow cheeks, and drooping jaw-lines, just to name a few.
Dermal fillers in Brisbane are a safe and effective way to enhance your overall appearance and give you a more youthful look by diminishing facial lines and restoring volume and fullness to your face. Dermal filler injection treatments are not about making you look like a different person, but rather are a way to enhance your natural beauty.
There are many different reasons (and ages) clients come to us for their first dermal filler treatment. Some clients want to look their best for an upcoming wedding or milestone birthday, and others enjoy regular dermal filler treatments as part of their overall skin-care regime to maintain firm, youthful-looking skin.

How Do Dermal Filler Injections Work?
Put simply, dermal fillers work as replenishment for collagen, which is the major component of the dermis (the second layer of the skin). Collagen is what gives skin firmness and strength. As we age, our body produces less collagen, so dermal fillers are needed in order to reverse the consequences of weakening collagen, which are folds, wrinkles, and hollow facial features.
Why Do People Consider Filler Injections?
To turn back the clock: As time goes by, we lose collagen, elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid from our skin. This causes our skin to lose volume and elasticity, which in turn leads to wrinkles and folds forming on our faces, along with a loss of volume, or ‘hollowing.’ Fillers can be used to address these issues by plumping skin folds, smoothing wrinkles and replenishing volume to your skin.
To enhance: Many people want to make the most of their natural beauty by refining or enhancing certain facial features. For example, lip fillers are a popular treatment to plump the lips. For clients wanting to highlight their cheekbones, fillers are a great solution. Fillers can even reshape your nose without the expense, downtime, and risks of plastic surgery.
What Will Happen At My First Consultation?
At the conclusion of the consultation, you will be very welcome to either proceed with a dermal filler treatment or take some time to consider your options and re-book for a treatment at a later date.
All consultations are 100% obligation free and we don’t put any pressure on our patients to either re-book or to proceed with the treatment immediately. We want our patients to feel comfortable and fully understand the treatments they are interested in – the purpose of the initial consultation is to make sure our patients have answers to all their questions.

How Long Will My Treatment Session Take?

What Should I Expect Before, During And After Treatment?
Before your treatment, you’ll have a consultation with Dr Colin Campey, About Face Brisbane’s highly qualified and experienced doctor, or our second dermal filler expert Marian Ferguson, a Registered Nurse with over 15 years of experience. During this consultation, Dr Campey or Marian will discuss your goals and expectation thoroughly with you and will recommend a treatment plan. You may wish to proceed with your treatment immediately after this consultation, or you may prefer to book in for the treatment at a later date – either option is completely fine, and there is no obligation to commence treatment after the initial consultation.
On the day of your treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area, and you will wait about 30 minutes for this cream to take effect.
During your treatment:
Once the numbing cream has taken effect, a tiny needle will be used to inject the filler into the targeted areas. Between treatment areas or sides of your face, Dr Campey or Marian will give you the opportunity to look at your face in the mirror. As results from dermal fillers can be seen instantly, your input can be used to guide your treatment as the procedure progresses.
After your treatment:
As soon as your treatment is finished, you can return to your normal daily life – there is no downtime. You can simply walk out the door of our North Brisbane clinic looking more youthful and refreshed.
