Dermal filler injections are administered by using a very fine needle which some describe as the sensation of small pin-prick or mosquito sting. It works by injecting a naturally occurring substance into the mid to deep dermis of the skin. Once injected, this substance occupies space and absorbs the soft tissue fluid found in the human body.
When getting dermal filler at our Melbourne or Adelaide clinic, you may feel minor discomfort, but most of our clients experience little to no pain at all. This is because most dermal fillers have a local anaesthetic (0.3% lidocaine) included in the product, and we often administer additional local anaesthetic. Each session for dermal fillers in Box Hill or any of our other clinics can take around 15-45 minutes.
