As you approach middle age, you may notice that your complexion isn’t as supple, even, or smooth as it used to be. Compounding the issue, your face may look more drawn than it once did, as if your facial muscles — the ones that help you talk, chew, smile, frown, and squint — have begun to break down after years of use.
What you’re noticing is facial deflation, an age-related process that begins at about the age of 30, and continues as time goes on. It’s what’s responsible for the flattened cheeks, thinning temples, and lip thinning that are so common among middle-aged adults.
Dermal fillers are designed to address the many facial changes brought on by aging, including facial deflation. These minimally-invasive injectable cosmetic products are made with collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other beneficial substances that help rejuvenate facial skin and add facial volume.
If you’re looking for a safe, effective, non-surgical way to temporarily reverse age-related facial deflation and smooth wrinkles and furrows, dermal fillers can help. They can be used to reduce the appearance of deep lines around your eyes, brow, or mouth, change the contour of your jawline, subtly flesh out your cheeks, and even enhance your lips. Fillers can also diminish the appearance of minor depressions and scars, including those caused by acne.
With immediate results, few risks or side effects, and little to no downtime, it’s not surprising that dermal fillers are one of the most commonly requested aesthetic treatments.

After your initial consultation, the team at The Spa in Saxonburg develops a customized treatment plan that includes selecting the best dermal filler products to meet your goals.
Before the procedure, you’ll receive thorough pre-treatment instructions letting you what you should avoid, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and smoking. You’ll also be asked to stay well hydrated before and after the treatment.
Dermal fillers are administered through a few tiny facial injections, which are generally considered painless. The average session lasts 10-20 minutes, with immediate results that may last anywhere from one to two years, depending on the product.
