Dr Scott Allison is renowned for his innovative use of dermal filler to create facial enhancements and transformations. Popular procedures include non-invasive chin and jaw augmentations, cheekbone enhancements, lip enhancements, liquid rhinoplasty, tear trough rejuvenation and facial smoothing.
Ascension practitioners use a wide range of filler types and weights from firm filler that can perform like bone or cartilage to soft filler that functions like skin tissue.
Non-invasive facial augmentation using filler can be an incredibly effective alternative to surgical measures such as cheekbone implants, jaw and chin implants and rhinoplasty, with results lasting up to 18 months.
Soft filler is commonly used to smooth areas such as tear troughs, nasal labial folds, forehead and the temples, to create a rejuvenated appearance. Enhancing the structure of the cheekbones, jawline and chin using firm filler can also tighten the skin and prevent areas such as the lines around the mouth from increasing over time.
Areas we can treat
With luscious, plump lips being more popular than ever, it’s no surprise that one of our most commonly performed treatments are lip enhancements. Dermal fillers can work wonders for lips – whether you feel they’re thin, uneven, out of proportion or lack definition, our team of aesthetic experts can adjust your lips to suit your goals and facial structure. As one of the first facial features to show signs of ageing, dermal filler is often in combination with anti-wrinkle injections to restore structure and volume to the lower face.
Your cheeks can make all the difference to your face. There may be a number of reasons why you might consider cheek filler: you may have flat or underdeveloped cheek bones, asymmetry between sides, or a sunken and hollow appearance due to ageing. With dermal filler, we can bring volume to your cheeks and add depth and shape to your facial structure. The difference can be astounding – correctly placed dermal cheek fillers will leave your whole face looking younger and fresher than ever.
Like the cheeks, your jaw is a key part of your facial structure. It adds definition to your features while balancing the upper and lower parts of the face. If you feel you have a weak jawline, asymmetry or lack of definition, this filler is ideal for you. We often place jawline filler along with additional filler in the upper face to make sure the result is natural and in proportion. We can also use jawline filler in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections to relax overactive muscles in the area, leading to a completely tailored result that complements your unique beauty.
Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by our bone structure or the hollowing of the face as we age. This causes a tired, worn-out appearance, leading to those ‘you look tired’ comments we all know and love. Dermal filler works particularly well in these situations. We can restore volume under the eye, support the tissue around the eye and improve the texture of the eye skin. We’ll tailor your treatment to your specific facial structure to make sure the results are natural, leaving you looking glowing, refreshed and youthful.
The nasolabial fold is the crease that goes from the nose to the sides of the mouth. This fold is commonly caused by loss of upper jaw volume and sagging of the cheek. We usually treat this area in conjunction with other areas in the mid-face to get a natural and subtle result. With dermal fillers, we can reduce the depth of the fold, treat the area at the base of the nose and add support to the upper lip. These areas together will rejuvenate your mid-face and showcase your stunning unique features.
Temple fillers are becoming increasingly popular when it comes to cosmetic enhancements, as with an expert touch they can improve your entire face shape. As time goes by, our temples hollow out due to fat and tissue loss on the sides of the face. We can fix sunken temples, the outside portion of the brow and any sagging in the cheeks by treating the temple area with dermal fillers. These fillers will give you a subtly rounded, youthful face shape – you’ll be amazed at the difference temple fillers can make.
Whether it’s due to genetics or injury, it’s common to have asymmetry, crookedness or issues with the size and shape of your nose. The nose is the central point of the face, so any irregularities can detract from the rest of your facial structure. Nose filler (or non-surgical rhinoplasty) is an effective alternative to traditional rhinoplasty surgery. By using hyaluronic acid filler, we can smooth and contour your nose to suit your bone structure. It’s a non-invasive, quick procedure which can help balance your facial features and dramatically boost your confidence.
Forget regular facelifts! True-Lift can give you a similar lifted look – without the pain and downtime. Using high density filler, we’ll carefully inject five key locations on the face: the brow, the cheek, the nasolabial area, the upper lip and the pre-jowl area. These places are where drooping and skin sagging is most common. When combined with normal dermal filler procedures to restore volume or shape the face, we can produce stunning results that are authentic to your features.
Injectable moisturiser exists to give you plump, bright and hydrated skin. A powerful combination of skin needling and non-crosslinked filler, they can also help with skin complexion, texture and fine wrinkles. Injectable moisturiser isn’t like your usual filler – it won’t add volume or change the shape of your face. It’s designed to disperse evenly underneath the skin to give you that full-face glow you’ve been dreaming of.
Dermal filler FAQs
Dermal filler is a soft gel-like material commonly made from hyaluronic acid, a substance which is naturally found in our bodies. When injected under the skin, fillers instantly create volume, suppleness and smoothness. There are different forms of dermal fillers which we use for different treatments – firmer fillers are used for creating shape and structure, whereas softer fillers are used for skin hydration and blurring fine lines.
Dermal fillers will last anywhere between 6-18 months depending on the location of the filler, your metabolism and the type of filler used.
Dermal fillers are considered to a relatively low-pain procedure. Depending on the area being injected (such as the lips), you may be treated with a numbing gel so the injections are as comfortable as possible. Some kinds of dermal filler contain local anaesthetic, which takes effect as soon as the injections are performed. The injections themselves usually only feel like a slight pinch or sting.
In the right hands, dermal fillers are a very safe and effective treatment. While there’s no downtime after the procedure, you will likely experience some swelling and redness that will subside over the coming days. Discolouration, bleeding or bruising is also common. If incorrectly injected into a blood vessel, fillers can cause more serious complications, but knowledge of facial anatomy and expert injecting techniques heavily reduces the risk. In the rare event of incorrect filler placement, the filler can be immediately and safely dissolved with an injection of hyaluronidase.
There is little downtime associated with dermal fillers, which is one of the reasons why it is such a popular treatment! Some bruising or swelling may be present, but this will disappear in the days following the procedure. Panadol will help alleviate any lingering pain.
After your filler treatment, do not apply makeup or lipstick for four hours afterwards. For the next 24 hours, avoid exercising, and do not swim for the next week. We also recommend avoiding alcohol for 24 hours after your fillers, as it can increase the chance of bruising.
