Dermal filler injections are composed of synthetic gel which mimic naturally occurring substances found in skin. Fillers offer a low cost and non- surgical approach to achieve facial rejuvenation and are popular because they are effective, safe and offer predictable results.
Dermal fillers rejuvenate the face by restoring volume and enhancing underlying structures. It is important to consider that dermal fillers are added in small volumes- the process of volumising the face should be measured and planned in order to achieve a natural outcome.
Dermal fillers occur in different densities. Dense fillers are used to enhance structure ,and provide definition to the face such as the cheekbone and jawline. Softer fillers add volume to lips and infill lines. Very fine fillers called Skin Boosters are used to hydrate the skin and improve skin texture.
At Thrive Skin Clinic we have a natural aesthetic and aim to enhance rather than change the shape of your features. Our cosmetic nurses use advanced techniques to reduce bruising and complications. We only use premium TGA approved products that have proven safety, efficacy and longevity.

Dr Grant will assess your suitability for injectable treatments annually either in person or via Skype.
