The type of filler used to treat different areas depends on the desired outcome and what will suit your face. The dermal fillers used in Skin Enhance and Wellness include hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and Radiesse (Calcium Hydroxylapatite collagen-stimulating fillers).

How long do dermal fillers last?
The duration of a filler varies depending on your lifestyle and the product chosen and where it is injected. Soft fillers like lips fillers are gradually broken down by the body and disappear over 6-9 months. Some fillers such as cheek, chin, or jawline fillers can last 12-18 months. Tear trough fillers can last up to 18 months.
Are there any circumstances when I can't have dermal fillers?
You can’t have the treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you have certain medical conditions affecting your immune system or allergies. If you have active infection at the site of filler placement it would not be advisable to have filler treatment at that time.
Can dermal filler treatment be done alongside other treatments?
Yes, it is safely done with other treatments like anti-wrinkle injections and fillers to other areas like lips or cheeks.
Is there anything I can’t do before or after the treatment?
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen
- Vitamins supplements like fish oils, omega-3 fatty acids, high dose vitamin E, garlic, gingko biloba and St John’s wort
Any medication being taken that can increase bleeding like blood thinners or steroids must not be stopped and must be discussed with Dr Tash.
It is also recommended you are careful when washing after the filler treatment, avoid rubbing the area and avoid make up for 24hours to reduce any risk of infection. Your aftercare will be discussed in more detail at the face-to-face consultation.
If I stop having the treatment would I look worse than I started off with?
How much will the treatment cost?
This is dependent on the amount of filler and the desired outcome. Treatments are often staggered over a period of time. There are payment plans available at Skin Enhance Clinic to spread the cost of the treatment.
