Have you heard about the Fountain of Youth? That surreal spring which can grant you eternal youth if you drank from it or bathe in its water. How we wish we could visit that spring! But, worry not, we have discovered the next best thing for youth and glamour- Cheek Fillers.
I know what you are thinking, it’s the one most important question- How? Well, at younger age, our face looks plump and fuller due to the cushioning of the fat layers in the face particularly in cheek areas. But, as we grow older, these fats dissolve, making the skin loose and droopy. As a result, the cheeks look bonier and the fats shift to the lower section around the chin giving the face an elderly and sagged look along with the arrival of wrinkles, folds and creases such as crow’s feet, accordian lines and types of nasolabial folds.
According to a survey conducted by Allergen on Australian women, 57% of women between the age of 20 – 49 years believe that sunken cheeks make a person look older.
It is required to retain the lost cheek volume, which will in return fix the occurrence of wrinkles and folds and also tighten the loose droopy skin, thus giving us access to ever-cherishing youth and beauty.
Not convinced yet? Then let me give you 7 reasons why you should rely on cheek fillers to look ageless and attractive.
1> A Complete Anti-Aging Treatment:
Cheek augmentation at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre Melbourne is done by our highly qualified and experienced Dr Shobhna Singh, who only after carefully inspecting the facial structure proceeds with the treatment. The injectable fillers for cheek are applied at specific areas that add volume to the cheek without over-doing it, and at the same time diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and folds. This process gives a visible lift to the cheeks and tightens the facial skin, thus bestowing a much younger and charming look.
2> Define Your Features:
The shape and volume of our cheeks represent our overall facial structure. With cheek dermal fillers, our cheekbones can be emphasized and made fuller, thus defining the facial features and making them appear more prominent and younger suppressing the general marks of aging.
3> Embrace a Treatment That Lasts:
Cheek enhancement with dermal cheek fillers Melbourne lasts for a very long period of time, sometimes up to 2 years also depending on the type of fillers and the amount used.
4> Light on Pocket:
Treatment with cheek fillers at Nitai Clinic is very cost efficient. The price of syringes of cheek dermal fillers starts at around $750, which is very less compared to other surgical methods. Priceless beauty at such a convenient price…amazing! Isn’t it?
5> Couple of Minutes…and Done:
It takes only 20 minutes to one hour to execute the whole cheek enhancement process. Since a type of anaesthetic gel is mixed with the dermal fillers, therefore, it hardly takes any extra recovery time after the procedure is completed.
6> Negligible Risk with Cheek Fillers:
Non-surgical cheek enhancement with dermal fillers is an absolutely painless process to make your cheeks appear plump and supple. As I have mentioned in my previous article on Dermal Fillers, these cheek fillers also mimic the synthetic version of a naturally found substance in our skin collagen, hence chances of any sort of side-effects or allergies are very less if performed by a skilled cosmetic physician.
7> Don’t Like It…Reverse It:
One very good advantage of cheek fillers Melbourne is that if you are not satisfied with the cheek augmentation, you can always dissolve it. In case, a little adjustment is required, then also that can be done efficiently without any discomfort or worry.
An anti-aging treatment which is painless, cost-efficient and long lasting…what better way can there be to look ageless?
Pick cheek dermal fillers; pick ageless beauty!!
“Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the prettiest of them all?”
Don’t we all seek answer to this question when we stand in front of a mirror? And every time we desire it to be our own name only…isn’t it?
But, time doesn’t forget to leave its mark on us, irrespective of what we wish. I recall the words of Robert Burns, “Beauty’s of a fading nature, Has a season and is gone!”. As our age increases, the appearance of crow’s feet, wrinkles and other fine lines and scars also starts, thus pushing us towards the impending consequence of skin aging that we neither want nor desire.
Dermal filler is one such miracle of modern medicine that can erase the harsh stroke of time. It visibly reduces the several signs of aging by making up for the lost collagen (protein responsible for skin elasticity) and fat pads (fats that cushion our face skeletal for a youthful look). Sounds like an easy fix to the skin aging problems? Let us find out more about it!
What is dermal filler in general terms?
Dermal filler is a colorless, odorless, gel-based substance that is naturally found in our skin collagen, thus making it safe (with a well understood risk profile) to be used as facial fillers in the world of aesthetic and cosmetic treatments. When we age, our skin loses its elasticity and the fats that presents us a youthful look. At that point, dermal filler is injected into our skin to restore its proper volume and elasticity.
How does dermal filler work?
As an example, let us consider there is a crack or split in your favorite wooden table. Now, to repair it, the best way is to fill up the crack with a shim, then polish the surface and repaint it to possess back that gleaming plain surface. Similarly, during aging, the loss of collagen and subcutaneous fats leaves behind some hollow space that generates folds, wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal filler fills up that space and lifts the skin making it wrinkle-free and young.
When the fluid (dermal filler) is injected in the required areas of the skin, it interacts with the water content present in the internal layers of the skin and transforms itself into a thick mass that adds volume to the skin and helps in retaining youth to great extent.
What are the certain areas where dermal fillers can be utilized?
Dermal fillers are very widely used for the aesthetic enhancement of face. However, at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we take the aid of facial fillers for countless purposes such as,
• Adding volume to cheeks,
• Removing fine lines, folds, wrinkles, etc. by filling them,
• Camouflaging acne scars or any other accidental scars,
• Lip enhancement or plump thin lips,
• Removing eye-bags and other tear trough effects,
• Contouring certain facial areas,
• Eliminating frown lines.
Thus, under the care and guidance of accomplished doctors and assisting staff, dermal fillers can do wonders to amplify the beauty of a person.
Why should we choose dermal fillers?
No doubt, there are other options also such as anti-wrinkle injections or surgical lift, etc. to acquire similar results, but dermal fillers have revealed some unique benefits, which make it a very wise and convenient choice for aesthetic and cosmetic cures.
• Painless non-surgical treatment that can be completed in one single session
• Long-lasting results that persist up to 2 years in some cases
• No anesthesia is required during the whole process
• Extremely safe (with a well understood risk profile) and secured with very rare instances of side-effects
• Very natural-looking results without any stiffening or stretching of the skin
• It can be easily reversed if and when not happy with the results.
Is there any permanent type of dermal filler?
Of course, there are permanent facial fillers also but, this one-time easy fix may turn out to be quite disastrous also. If due to certain allergic reaction or immunity interference, we develop an infection from fillers, then there is no way to recover from it except for surgical strategies. So, temporary filler can be regarded as the best solution to remove folds and wrinkles.
What are the possible side-effects of these fillers?
At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, mostly synthetic fillers are used. They have a very low risk of allergic reaction or any other sort of infection as in case of animal-derived collagen fillers.
However, the possibility of infection remains, and it varies from person to person or on the type of fillers used.
How long do these fillers last?
This non surgical anti aging treatment may last from 9 to 18 months depending on the type and amount of filler used and the area where it has been used to give volume.
Beauty not only makes us feel great about ourselves, but it also boosts our confidence to face the world in a better way. So, do not let your beauty fade away. With the skill and expertise of the qualified doctors and staffs at Nitai Clinic, let us help you reverse the clock of aging.
Stay young and ageless today, tomorrow…always!
Most of us wish to exude youth and vitality for as long as we can, right? And while there is much more to being young, looking good is a fairly sure way of feeling young. And our face is often one of the earlier markers of age.
Over time and age, our facial skin tends to undergo a change. This happens due to the breakdown of our skin’s collagen and elastin network. One of the key changes that you will notice is volume loss, which may result in skin folds, fine lines, wrinkles or even sagging and shriveling. Not only do these make us look older, but often, they cause a dent in our confidence. Because as you will agree, our face is an integral part of our identity, and a happy, relaxed and confident face goes a long way in projecting who we really are.
Advancements in cosmetic treatments have now made it possible to have a fresh-looking, youthful face without any surgery. You can change your facial contours, be it getting a more defined jawline, plumper lips, fuller, firmer cheeks or a smoother neckline, and also get beautiful, wrinkle free skin while at it – all without going under the knife, only with dermal fillers!
When can dermal fillers help?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that can not only restore, but also transform the way your face looks. They are made with a chemical that is naturally found in the skin, and can help you improve your facial aesthetic in many ways, so that you can slow down the signs of ageing, such as:
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Nasolabial folds
– Changing facial contours – eye hollows, thinning out of the jaws, shorter receding chin
– Droopy and tired eyes
– A drooping smile
There are many different types of dermal fillers, and our cosmetic doctors will choose what is best for you, depending on your skin type and requirements. Finer fillers are used areas where the skin is fine, and a fine, smooth finish is required, such as the under eye area. Thicker fillers are used in areas like the jaws or cheeks, where more bulk is needed.
Why choose dermal fillers?
Choosing to sculpt your face with dermal fillers has many advantages over a facelift surgery.
– For one, they don’t cause as much discomfort, apart from some minor bruising or swelling, which usually subsides within 2 days.
– You won’t need to factor in much downtime, as most of these procedures can be done in less than an hour. You can go back to work the very next day after your procedure.
– You can begin to notice the results immediately, though it might still take a couple of weeks for significant results to start showing.
– Unlike a surgery, the cost of this procedure is much lesser. So you can look the way you want, without having to shell out a fortune.
What can you expect during the procedure?
The actual procedure is preceded by an initial consultation, where we will examine your skin and facial features, and look at how to enhance and balance out those features to get you the required facial contour. This is the time that we will decide and share about the fillers we will use, where we intend to use them, the possible risks as well as the cost of the procedure. Once you agree to go ahead, we give you an appointment at a mutually convenient date and time.
Before the procedure, we use an antiseptic solution to cleanse your face. We could apply a topical numbing cream or ice over the area to be treated, to reduce the intensity of pain. Sometimes, we may also mix the filler with a local anaesthetic, for minimal pain.
The dermal filler is then carefully injected either with a needle or a cannula, by our cosmetic doctor. Cannulas are a relatively newer way to inject fillers, and have many advantages over needles, some of them being:
– The round tip of the cannula allows the doctor to feel each structure and any resistance that comes in the path, so that an alternate path is probed. This will help avoid damage to arteries and veins, and will cause less bruising as well.
– Being longer in length over needles, cannulas allow for filling many areas on your skin through a single entry point, thus causing lesser trauma to the skin.
During the procedure, we take special care to avoid the possibility of the needle disrupting a vein and causing a bruise, with the Accuvein Vein Finder. What this does is visualize veins below the skin, so that we can suitably reposition the injection point to prevent vein bruising.
Will this need heavy duty post treatment skin care?
This procedure causes minimal bruising, and as mentioned earlier, you can go back to your routine almost immediately. However, we do recommend using a hydrating moisturizer that will also add more volume to the skin. The Aspect Dr Hyaluronic Serum does this, and is also suitable for most skin types.
Dermal fillers have opened up possibilities to have the kind of face that you have always desired, and the fact that you can do this without surgery, with lesser pain, time and costs is like the cherry on the proverbial cake. At Nitai Medical & Cosmetic Centre, we are known for our very experienced staff, and our commitment to your well-being. And if you’re looking for ways to enhance your facial features, reach out to us and know how you can make the face of your dreams, a part of your everyday reality.
Dermal fillers are a popular way to treat wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and even sagging skin, sunken cheeks and hollow jaw lines. While it is a fairly safe treatment with well understood risks, a lot of our clients express some fears and concerns about this treatment, and in this post, we will look at some of the most common ones:
1. Are they suitable for all?
Our consultation before the procedure starts will ascertain whether dermal fillers would be right for you. In our experience, most people can go ahead and get dermal fillers. However, there are a few exceptions like women who are expecting, or lactating mothers.
2. Artificially plump face
Some fear that a botched procedure could result in puffed up faces and lips, but dermal fillers have come a long way today, and can give amazingly precise results. Moreover, fillers can be used all over the face to achieve a naturally balanced look. Moreover, if you choose to get your treatment at a reputable clinic like Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, you can rest assured that your treatment is in experienced hands.
3. Will it be painful?
A lot of clients are often surprised at how pain free this procedure is. This is because we use very fine, sterilized needles to inject the fillers so at most, you might feel a prick. The fillers also contain a local anaesthetic, which desensitizes you to any pain during the procedure. We also take additional care with some ice packs / numbing cream in case needed, so that you are comfortable and pain free.
4. When will the results start showing, and how long will they last?
Dermal fillers can give almost instantaneous results. The treated area could be slightly red and / or swollen, though this largely settles down in a few hours. Subtle swelling could last for up to a week. The final results start showing after 30 – 45 days of treatment, and depending on the treatment area, type of filler, and post procedure care taken, these could last anywhere between 6 months to 2 years!
5. Will dermal fillers require much downtime?
Most clients can usually resume work within a day of treatment. However, we recommend that you do not get your treatment immediately before a big event / special occasion, as there could be minor swelling and bruises which typically take 2 weeks to subside.
Wherever you choose to get your dermal filler treatment, ensure that the clinic has well qualified and experienced aestheticians on hand and that you know about all the possible risks that are involved with the procedure.

Looking for dermal fillers or facial fillers in Melbourne? Then you’ve come to the right place, as Nitai is a leading medical & cosmetic clinic in Melbourne.
Are you someone who is fearful of needles and injections? Well, when it comes to dermal fillers, there isn’t much to worry as it is a relatively painless procedure. Let’s take a quick look at why we may use dermal injections:
- To add more volume to sagging skin
This is typically for the face / lips area. After a dermal filler injection, your lips or face can feel “full”, as a small pocket of fluid has been injected under your dermal layer. While it might seem odd at first, it won’t be long before you adjust to this new feeling of fullness, as it will start to feel natural, after a while.
- To rejuvenate skin
In this case, dermal fillers are injected across your whole face in extremely small amounts using a micro injector. What this does is stimulate rejuvenation of new skin cells. A key ingredient of the dermal fillers, which is also found in our skin, is commonly used in these injections.
Are dermal injections painful?
Dermal filler injections are not meant to hurt, and getting one is a relatively painless procedure. This is because we use anaesthetic cream or injection, so that you feel no pain before or after the procedure. This is not to say that you can’t do without an anaesthetic. If you wish to stay away from anaesthetics, it may be a little uncomfortable, like any other injection.
After the injection, it is common to have some swelling and minor bruising during the injection. But this subsides within a few days. And so there is nothing to feel daunted about doing this as part of a larger skin beautifying plan.
If you wish to go ahead with an injection, choose a clinic with experienced cosmetic doctors and trained nurses. And this is where we differ from other clinics that offer the dermal filler treatment in Melbourne. Talk to us to know more about how you can get beautiful skin.
Our skin is one of the most telling signs of our wellbeing. And everyone wants beautiful skin. After all, who wouldn’t want skin that’s soft, smooth and supple?
However, our skin changes as we age. And there are other factors like sun exposure, heredity, diet and lifestyle that contribute to these changes. We tend to lose the subcutaneous fat that gives our faces a “fuller” appearance, increasing the likelihood of smile lines and crow’s feet. Not only this, fine lines and wrinkles start to appear too.
Thankfully, help is here in the form of dermal fillers. There are many clinics offering dermal fillers in Melbourne. And Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre is known to offer high quality treatments when it comes to dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a non-invasive, skin rejuvenation treatment that can help reduce facial fine lines, and restore lost volume and “fullness” to your face. They involve an injectable solution that fills the soft tissue under the skin. There are many areas where dermal fillers can be used, some popular ones being under-eye lines or crow’s feet, cheeks, lips, chin, face and hands. Sometimes, they are also used in cases where there are a lot of acne scars, to smoothen them out.
To put it simply, dermal fillers can make your skin look younger – and make you look even more beautiful.
