Dermal fillers

Clinica Lase clinics in both Carlton and Ballarat utilise the latest dermal fillers to enhance and cosmetically improve certain areas of the face. Thanks to our convenient locations and reputation for great results, we find many clients travel to us from surrounding Melbourne areas such as Moonee Ponds, Essendon and East Melbourne.

The high standard of our clinic and its treatments aren’t available everywhere. We understand this and welcome all of our regional neighbours from Bendigo and Ballarat to name a few.

Dermal fillers are used to help replenish facial volume loss which may be seen as flattening and shrivelling of the skin, wrinkles, or folding of the skin. They are also commonly used for a number of different functions, including:

  • Lip, chin, and cheek enhancement
  • Non-surgical facelift
  • Non-surgical jowl reduction
  • Brow shaping or lifting
  • Reshaping of the nose
  • Filling of the tear trough

Our safe, tried and tested methods of dermal filler treatments involve injectable cosmetic fillers to suit all skin types.

What to Expect

When you arrive for your appointment, we will ask you to disclose some information about yourself via a consultation form, covering your medical history and any previous treatments.

After completing the form, you will move on to have a private discussion with one of our supervising Doctors and cosmetic nurses. In this session, they will perform a full assessment of your individual requirements. They will then suggest a tailored plan and work together with you to make sure you get the best result.

During this time, you can feel free to raise any questions regarding the procedure and we will do our best to put you completely at ease. This is also the time when our supervising Doctor and cosmetic nurse will run you through the details of the procedure itself, and also what you need to do in terms of pre and post-care.


Exercising your facial muscles by exaggerating facial movements for around an hour after having your treatment will allow the injected product to work into the muscle. Don’t worry too much though, your treatment will not be affected if you do forget to do so.

It is normal to have some redness, swelling and tenderness post treatment. You can apply a cold compress or an ice pack to the area if you are experiencing discomfort after the procedure. However, given how unlikely and unusual this is, be sure to contact Clinica Lase immediately.

For the first 24-48 hours post-procedure, we discourage the use of products containing AHAs, BHAs, or Retinoids. Make-up may be applied post-procedure as long as mineral makeup is used, and be sure that sponges and brushes used are thoroughly cleaned to minimise infection. Some patients can experience a mild headache post procedure. If this occurs you may take paracetamol as needed.

Facial treatments and peels are not to be undertaken for 24-48 hours post-procedure. This includes any massage treatments on the face.
