When it comes to a youthful appearance, time and gravity are not our BFF’s. But for everything lost in the natural aging process, we have Cosmetic Dermal Filler Injectables. This highly effective and natural alternative to cosmetic surgery is the answer for patients wishing to restore volume in the skin and fullness in the facial tissues. Our Hyaluronic Acid Fillers also work beautifully to correct structure and naturally reshape the form of your face.
Common treatment areas are nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smile lines, tear troughs, fine lines, and creases. In addition to providing the cosmetic advantage of filling facial lines and folds, dermal fillers can stimulate your skins own natural collagen growth, which aids in the prevention of wrinkles and folds forming.
Through an intimate consultation with Nurse Jo, our extensive cosmetic filler menu offers a range of options to treat your cosmetic concerns and individual aesthetic goals without ever going under the knife.

What Are Hyaluronic Acid
Don’t be fooled by the ‘acid’ in Hyaluronic Acid. When injected, this gel-like water-holding molecule is a moisture-binding ingredient that works effectively to help keep your facial tissue voluminous and structure beautifully-formed. And, in fact, Hyaluronic Acid is a substance our bodies naturally produce.
Although we can’t give you the name of the product due to Australian TGA regulations, we use only the highest-grade Natural Hyaluronic Acid Lip Filler brands at Harbour Medispa to ensure the longest-lasting, effortlessly youthful results.
Are Fillers or Anti-Wrinkle Relaxants Right For Me?
The simple rule? Lines of expression need anti-wrinkle injections. Lines at rest need filler. While anti-wrinkle injections are a great choice for hitting those “crease points” where muscles contract, fillers are best for deep lines that are present even when facial muscles are not contracting.
The many benefits of Dermal Fillers can include:
- Faster-Acting Than Creams – Anti-aging creams are a long-term investment into your skin. And definitely important to your skincare ritual. However, the results of dermal fillers can be seen almost instantly while also stimulating your skins natural collagen production.
- Quicker (And Less Painless) Than surgery – Most dermal filler procedures take less than an hour, that’s why they are known as the ‘lunchtime facelift’. Surgery tends to give slightly better, longer lasting results but is very invasive and involves a recovery time of up to 4 to 6 weeks.
- Natural looking effect – Dermal filler injections give a natural looking result that doesn’t alter your facial expressions in the same way as anti-wrinkle injections can. As your face changes over time you can control the way you look with regular dermal fillers to plump out the right areas of your face.
