|What brand of filler do you use?|
At our clinic we use different brands and also different types of fillers within each brand. Due to Australian legislation, we can’t use names of fillers (it’s prescription only medications, which can’t be advertised to public), but there are only European manufactured fillers used, which are medical grade and company sells it only for doctors. For most patient we use either German made either Austrian made filler from big pharma companies, who are manufacturing fillers for over 25 years for medical use (for example, it’s same as injected into eyes or joints).
|How long filler last?|
In average, fillers last 6-15 months. However, individual differences vary a lot. For example, 1st filler tend to last less than consequent ones because hyaluron is a natural moisturiser, which decreases with age. Therefore body tends to “dry it out” faster. Similar to how dry soil absorb water faster. For the same reason, filler will last shorter in conditions, which “dry out” our body (i.e., sun exposure, sauna, sport with excessive sweating, certain hormonal changes etc).
|What are most common downsides of filler?|
Most common side effect is pain from injection (therefore we use strong, prescription only topical anaethetic and, if indicated, local anaesthetic mixed with filler. Similar to what dentists do). Another common one is bruising due to high blood vessels concentration on face. To minimise it, we use special equipment and own technique, but there are always chance. Please, don’t do filler prior to important event in case if bruising appeared.
