DERMAL FILLERS CANBERRA

WHY DERMAL FILLERS WITH US?

At Ren Cosmedical Canberra, our cosmetic doctor injector, Dr. Ren Poh provides tailored dermal filler treatments to help his patients to achieve a more youthful and harmonised overall appearance. He also strives to offer the best and latest techniques in his dermal filler treatments to ensure patient safety is top priority when receiving treatments at our clinic, such as incorporating ultrasound technology in his treatments for high-risk areas. Due to the current restrictions imposed by the TGA, we are unable to advertise the brands of dermal fillers used at Ren Cosmedical.

HOW DO DERMAL FILLERS WORK?

Our skin tends to lose volume and elasticity over time, which contributes to an aged, saggy and tired appearance. Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic procedures where substances containing hyaluronic acid (HA) are injected into and under the skin to restore facial volume and fullness, smooth out facial lines, enhance shallow contours, improve appearance of recessed scars. HA is naturally found in the skin and is responsible for skin plumpness and hydration. Dermal fillers are therefore used by Dr. Ren Poh to fill and plump these empty spaces temporarily in the facial structure for a more youthful and refreshed look. This treatment is usually combined with anti-wrinkle injections for maximum aesthetic results which are loved by many patients.

Can dermal fillers be combined with other treatments?

Dermal filler can be useful to help soften static lines and replace volume loss. Whilst dermal fillers can help to restore volume to the cheeks, smooth out wrinkles and lines to provide an overall refeshed and radiant appearance, it does not stop the muscle movement from developing deeper lines over time. This is why anti-wrinkle injections are often paired together to reduce these lines and wrinkles to become deeper and more visible over time.

Other modalities such as HALO fractionated laser therapy, Morpheus8, FaceTite, BroadBand Light (BBL), bio-remodelling injectables, PDO monothreads or facial thread lifts are great adjunct to anti-wrinkle injections. Dr. Ren Poh will provide you with the best treatment plan tailored to your concerns during your consultation.
