Dermal Filler

Dermal Fillers replace the collagen in your skin lost over time through skin damage and ageing. Facial Fillers work to smooth wrinkles, fill out fine or deep lines and plump up your skin.

Introduction to Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers are a non-invasive, surgical treatment that can sometimes be referred to as “wrinkle fillers” for obvious reasons. They are used to rejuvenate the face and restore its once youthful appearance by minimalising the appearance of wrinkles and adding volume to the skin.

This is achieved by injecting the substance, which most often consists of hyaluronic acid for temporary fillers, into the skin or just underneath it. Other than evening out the skin and reducing wrinkles, dermal fillers are most commonly used to add volume and shape to the cheeks or for lip enhancement.

Who is the best candidate for a Dermal Filler treatment?

Most people are good candidates for dermal filler treatment, but Mr Marando would advise that ideal candidates should be in good health, non-smokers and patients with realistic expectations. Dermal fillers are also perfect who patients who do not want major or permanent cosmetic work done.

The Procedure

Depending on your needs and the outcome you desire, there are varying types of dermal fillers that last for different lengths of time: temporary, semi-permanent and permanent.

There are some clinics, such as Star Clinic, that have made the decision not to provide the permanent option as there are some issues that can arise as a result of the treatment. The fillers can also come in varying consistencies corresponding to the area or issue you aim to treat. Thicker fillers are used for restoring lost volume in the face whereas softer fillers are used for various enhancements and to smoothen wrinkles and creases.

Injecting dermal fillers is a very simple, quick procedure with immediate results; however these will take time to fully settle and you will see best the best results in about one month post treatment.


This procedure is ideal in the sense that there is no recovery time and patients can usually go straight back to work the following day. As mentioned above, the results are instant but will take a little time to settle, usually around 2-4 weeks. There is always the risk of bruising and swelling among other risks, some more serious than others, but these will be discussed with you prior to your treatment and there should be no issues providing that you consult with a professional, reputable surgeon like Mr Marando.
