Rather than just smoothing or tightening skin, an injectable filler aims to change the facial profile to a more youthful one. The injection of filler materials under the skin can fill in deep folds, such as nasolabial folds (also called "bracket lines", running from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth), create fuller lips and pad out hollow cheeks and eyes. Collagen used to be the standard filler, but now hyaluronic acid with brand names like Restylane is more popular.
How long do fillers last?
Hyaluronic acid fillers last six to 12 months; synthetic fillers such as Radiesse 12 to 18 months. Fat transfers (where your own body fat is extracted from another body part, processed and injected into your face) can sometimes last several years, though there's a chance the fat won't stay long and will be reabsorbed back into the body.
How much do fillers cost?
The cost of a single unit of non-fat filler is start from $468. To treat the lines around the mouth, for example, you'd require one ampoule of filler, and with treatment fees the cost would be depend on the fillers you need.
Do fillers hurt?
The injections hurt, and the pain will vary depending on the patient and the area being injected. In places like the nasolabial area there may be a slight short-term burning. Anaesthetic is generally used for the lips, as the injections cause a burning and stinging that is intolerable for most.
What are the risks associated with fillers?
The most common side effects of fillers are bruising, infection and allergic reaction. There can be significant complications if the operator accidentally injects filler into blood vessels, the most common being potential skin loss. Beware of permanent fillers, which are prone to significant and long-term side effects.
Almost everyone is suitable for HA fillers. It can be used in different areas of the face to create individualised and natural-looking results.

The anti-ageing properties of the botulinum toxin are likely behind many a well-preserved face in Hollywood, and can be found closer to home, too. When injected, botulinum toxin relaxes muscles, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. It's effective for "expression lines", such as frown and surprise lines on the forehead and crow's feet around the eyes, and "turkey neck" – lines on the throat.
Where can you get botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin is a prescription-only drug, although people who aren't medical professionals do currently inject it. This can be done by non-doctors obtaining prescriptions from doctors, or in the case of beauty clinics, having one doctor ostensibly supervising multiple non-medical injectors, without actually being in the room during the procedure. But beware of going down the bargain-basement path – botulinum is a potent bacterial neurotoxin, and there are consequences if it's not used correctly.
"Botulinum toxin should be prescribed and used by doctors in appropriate settings," says Geoff Lyons, president of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons. "If it's being injected by someone else, it should be done under appropriate supervision with a doctor on the premises. There are a number of people undertaking injection treatments apparently without supervision – we don't encourage that at all. Non-invasive procedures like fillers and Botox are considered low risk, but that doesn't mean no risk. Most risks are minor, but they're there."
How much does Botulinum toxin cost?
This depends on how much is injected. The number of units you'll need will depend on how active your muscles are. The price for a single unit is about $8–15. To treat the forehead you'll need roughly 10 to 20 units, costing between $90 and $300, depending on how much your practitioner charges. The cost is about the same for treating crow's feet.
Does Botulinum toxin hurt?
The pain has been described as similar to that of an ant bite, lasting for a few seconds.
How long does Botulinum toxin last?
