Dermal Fillers Gold Coast
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are volumising products that are injected into the dermal layer of your skin, they can be used to restore lost volume, soften lines and deep folds and to enhance or define lips and facial contours. They are a popular non-surgical treatment choice, primarily used to;
- Soften facial lines and wrinkles
- Shape and enhance lips
- Define facial contours
- Restore lost volume to cheeks
- Improve the quality and hydration of the skin.
The way in which we use Dermal Fillers has evolved in recent years. The focus was once to merely fill lines and wrinkles, a hammer and nail approach. Now we also address what is causing the lines and wrinkles in the first place. For example, deep folds and jowls are often a result of lost volume in the mid-face & cheek area. Restoring volume to the cheeks and mid-face areas can lift jowls and soften deep folds, thereby treating the cause and the effect.
What type of Dermal Filler products are used at Euphoria?
Depending on the area being treated, products of varying thickness are used, ranging from fine for skin texture and hydration, fine lines and lips, medium thickness for deeper folds and facial contouring, and thicker for areas that require a larger amount of volume for example; cheeks and facial contours.
Legislation prevents us from using brand names or active ingredients so please contact the clinic for more information.

What are Dermal Fillers made of?
As mentioned above, legislation prevents us from naming active ingredients on our website. What we can tell you is the main ingredient is a plant derived simple sugar molecule, a gel like substance. We all naturally produce this in our own body and it is what gives our skin its volume and fullness, by attracting and binding water (much like a sponge does), resulting in an increase in volume.
As we age, levels of this molecule deplete and our skin has less ability to retain water, resulting in;
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- Volume loss
- Dehydrated skin
- An aged and tired appearance.
Dermal Fillers can assist in restoring lost volume in a natural looking way; (only replenishing what has been lost) to create a freshened yet natural appearance.
Why Dermal Fillers may be beneficial for you
There are a number of events that occur as we age;
- We gradually lose volume from fat pads beneath the skin which causes our face to lose its natural shape and contours.
- Our skin becomes loose and saggy
- Deep folds and wrinkles appear where once there were none
- Ageing and gravity cause our once plump and youthful features to droop, resulting in a tired, aged appearance
This is particularly noticeable;
- Beneath the eyes
- In the cheeks
- Around the mouth and lips
- Along the jaw line.
Our bones also begin to age, becoming thinner and smaller.
Consider for a moment the image of a solid wooden table with a tight fitting table cloth......then, imagine the wooden table becoming smaller, but the table cloth staying the same size......you end up with an excess of loose, saggy table cloth with nowhere to go but South!
A similar thing happens to our face - our bone structure being the table, and our skin being the table cloth!
