Non Permanent Dermal Fillers in Brisbane
Facial volume loss can turn a once attractive face into looking “sad” and “gaunt”. By plumping the face in the right areas, we can re create “youthfulness” 3-dimensionally in the face, turning the “sad” downturn mouth back to a more “positive” facial expression.
Looking good requires our doctor to apply his/her artistic skills when using facial fillers. Our doctors are the “architect” for your face. It is important that your injector has a vision of where he (or she) will take your face to the next level of beauty. The goal is to use the right amount of fillers in the right place to create a happy, healthy and refreshed appearance, making you look more awake and alert without any evidence that you had any work done.
A good injector will also make the most from the dermal filler, taking a healthy interest in your financial investment, planning key strategic treatment options to maximise your rejuvenation choices. In addition a good and ethical doctor should not be afraid to tell you when your treatment of choice is no longer suitable, or that your expectation(s) not realistic.
Both our doctors are skilled and fluent in different techniques of injections (needle or cannula), good working knowledge of facial anatomy, good understanding of the skin in order to provide you with good outcomes.
With the availability of new dermal filler agents, we now have more choices to choose from – robust fillers to give lift, structure and projection; softer fillers for the lips and fine lines. As a result, we can:
- re-create, restore and support the foundations of facial bony structures,
- rejuvenate one’s appearance by blending the different regions on the face due to different rates of fat pads shrinkage,
- reduce superficial fine lines & prevent lines getting deeper and
- transform the face by enhancing the volume and contour of facial features such as lips, nose, chin and make the result look as natural as possible.
As with other medical procedures, risks of dermal fillers include: pain, infection, swelling, haematoma, bruising, vascular occlusion, the most serious complication is blindness, which may be irreversible. Treatment for complications may include antibiotics or injections to dissolve dermal fillers. If you have any issues after treatment here, please call our doctor who will assist you after procedures, even if after hours.
Lip Enhancement (Augmentation) Brisbane
We recommend the use of non permanent fillers for the purpose of lip augmentation or enhancement. Non permanent lip fillers provides a natural look and feel to the lips, are biocompatible and biodegradable and usually last around 6-12 months (depends on brand).
Dr. Janet feels it is very important to improve the area that “frames” the lips. She feels a pair of beautiful lips is in the detail of the “frame”, and purely “pumping” volume into the body will only make lips look artificial and “unusual”.
More permanent fillers can also be used. Whilst more permanent fillers are generally quite safe, they do have a slightly higher risk of complications compared to non permanent fillers.
Estimated cost for non permanent Lip Filler 1/2 ml from $250, or 1 ml from $360 to $550 (estimate only, cost of fillers depend on brand and prices do vary between brands). We stock different brands of dermal fillers to suit your budget.
Multiple syringe discounts apply and will be discussed after a complimentary consultation and facial balance and harmony assessment.

Dermal Fillers for Cheeks, Nose, Jawline & Chin
Prominent, full cheeks give a youthful and healthy appearance. With the new generation of fillers, we can augment cheeks, advance your chin, correct weak facial contours by placing fillers in the right areas. Cheek augmentation procedures often give patients a “wow” factor because the augmented cheekbones provide a “coat hanger” effect for the skin of the lower face, in many cases correcting the cheeks will improve both the nasolabial fold and jowls at the same time.
Similarly we can use fillers to improve the shape and height of the nose. Patients no longer need major surgery with the associated risks and downtime to improve the contour of your nose, however it is important to discuss with our doctor to get a realistic expectation of the outcome and longevity of result using injectable products alone.
Our doctors will discuss the potential side effects of the various types of filler materials used. Only highly skilled doctors perform injections in our clinic.
How much for Fillers? Cheek Fillers from $500 to $650 for 1 ml (depends on brand). Lip Fillers from $360 to $500 for 1 ml.
