It’s not often that you get a fly on the wall, behind the scenes look at what really goes on during a dermal filler treatment. From assessing the patient’s face and discussing treatment options to watching the dermal filler procedure. To educate and inform our patients and followers, Dr Gavin Chan (MBBS, Cosmetic Physician, Liposuctionist) and Dr Natasha Moscato (MBBS, FRACGP, Cosmetic Doctor) decided to treat their patient Rachelle as a tag team.

Dr Natasha Moscato explains that she had previously treated Rachelle with dermal fillers a few weeks before her wedding. Rachelle was so happy with the natural looking enhancements that she wanted more dermal filler treatment. Dr Gavin Chan explains, “Our clinic is focused on making people feel more beautiful with subtle enhancements. Most of our patients want people to notice they look better, without guessing they’ve had dermal filler treatment.”

Why closely assessing the face before dermal filler treatment is important

When you get dermal filler lip treatment and non-surgical facial shaping at a reputable medical clinic that has highly trained and experienced professional practitioners, they will take the time to closely assess your face. When Dr Gavin Chan and Dr Natasha Moscato systemically assessed Rachelle’s face they agreed the following areas would benefit from dermal filler treatment.

  1. Add volume above the brow line
  2. Improve cheek shape
  3. Increase volume of jawline
  4. Add definition to the lower lip
  5. Improve shape of the chin

Cosmetic Doctors and Cosmetic Nurses who are highly trained and experienced use their aesthetic eye to start this assessment. To confirm their findings and ensure no facial area misses out, they also use the golden phi ratio). Dr Gavin Chan explains that the callipers are automatically set at the ratio as 1:1.61, the golden ratio. Using this scientific method ensures the dermal filler treatment will be visually appealing.

What happens during dermal filler treatment for the lips and jawline?

the dermal filler treatment

Before the dermal filler treatment Rachelle’s face was thoroughly cleansed. Next her facial veins were marked up using the Accuvein and a red pencil. These areas are avoided during the treatment. Taking this important step ensures any possible bruising from the dermal filler treatment can be minimised. The next step is to plan where the dermal filler treatment would go by using a white pencil.

Dr Gavin Chan explains that using blunt cannulas with dermal filler treatment ensures blood vessels aren’t impacted. More importantly, when blunt cannulas are used, it safeguards against injecting into arteries – which can be potentially disastrous. During Rachelle’s dermal filler treatment, Dr Gavin Chan and Dr Natasha Moscato demonstrated their advanced injecting techniques.

After Rachelle’s treatment, she commented on how much she loved the way the chin dermal filler made her lips more balanced and larger. She also noticed how the dermal filler in her jawline made her face more symmetrical.
