Dermal Fillers Sydney

As we age, we start losing our youthful facial volume, which contributes to the formation of folds and wrinkles.

In recent years, dermal fillers have gained unprecedented popularity in the cosmetic medicine market, for their versatility when it comes to enhancing the face. For patients across different ages, dermal fillers are an excellent tool for those seeking to reshape their features, correct age-affected skin, restore volume to the face or postpone the effects of ageing. Men and women from all walks of life have undergone this treatment to help add or restore volume, vitality and aesthetic balance to the face.

At Shape Clinic, all our patients benefit from the fact that our highly experienced injectors perform this procedure by first paying meticulous attention to the shape of your face. Driven by Dr Steven Liew’s philosophy of taking a holistic approach towards beauty, we draw on dual pillars of symmetry and harmony to enrich the facial contour and create your ideal, most aesthetically pleasing facial shape. Through advanced techniques, the highest quality materials and expert artistry, Dr Liew and his team of injectors use dermal fillers to recapture your natural beauty and reveal its greatest aesthetic potential. This procedure can be used to treat a variety of areas, including the lips or cheeks, and ultimately helps to revitalise the skin for a naturally convincing and youthful facial glow.


Dermal fillers are aesthetic gel-based cosmetic treatments that are injected into the skin. They are a practical, non-surgical method designed to soften creases and folds, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and increase or restore volume to the face for a more vibrant and youthful shape. Different grades of dermal fillers are used for different areas of the face, such as the lips, cheeks and under the eyes. At Shape Clinic, we only use the highest quality fillers: those that are scientifically proven, medically safe, biodegradable and reasonably long-lasting.


As a result of the natural ageing process, elastin and collagen in the face begin to break down, and the face gradually loses its volume and youthful contour. This process contributes to the formation of folds and wrinkles, which can give the face a prematurely aged and tired look. Dermal fillers are used to both correct and postpone signs of ageing. This treatment helps to refine your profile and support underlying structures that become worn with age. Patients have sought this treatment for various areas of the face to help them soften creases and achieve more proportioned and fuller facial definition. Dermal fillers are most commonly used to:

  • Rejuvenate ageing lips, which lose volume and become thinner with time.
  • Enhance younger lips for a plumper, more defined overall outline, as well as a lustrous lip line.
  • Correct the downturned corners of the lips (the marionette fold) which can portray a sad, even angry appearance.
  • Smooth out lines around the lips (smoker’s lines), which may cause lipstick to bleed.
  • Erase cheek folds (nasolabial folds) which can give a tired appearance.
  • Reinflate cheeks that have lost volume over time for a fuller, revitalised profile.
  • Reduce dark circles under the eyes (tear troughs) to correct the perpetually fatigued, stressed appearance and to give a more well-rested look.
  • Subtly reshape the nose for a more flattering and proportionate shape and size

In a consultation before your procedure, your injector will consider your reasons for treatment, as well as your needs, expectations and aesthetic goals. They will explain how the treatment will be performed and the measures he will take to help you achieve your ideal facial profile. From thinning lips to deflated cheek folds, they will work closely with you to create a treatment plan that will allow you to enjoy a refreshed, smoother profile for longer.


The procedure will take place in a safe and welcoming environment where you will be treated with the utmost professional care and service by Shape Clinic’s friendly and dedicated staff. In line with your tailored treatment plan, we will carefully examine your facial structure before injecting the fillers to the desired areas. Our injectors administer dermal cheek and lip fillers via tiny injections under the skin. Treatment may take from 15 to 30 minutes, and while it is generally painless and offers a minimal amount of discomfort, your safety and comfort will be ensured at all times of the procedures.


After the fillers have been injected, there is generally no downtime required. Some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising, particularly when treating the hollow areas under the eyes. Usually, this disappears in a few days, and your fillers will settle, allowing your facial tissue to conform to the new contour. Generally, patients can return to work or regular activity following the procedure.

Depending on the type of fillers used, the areas treated and your individual skin habits, results may last from 4 to 24 months. In your consultation, Dr Liew will give you an idea of how long the fillers will actively enhance your appearance. While the fillers will not prevent the ageing process, they will allow you to enjoy a youthful, refreshed and fuller profile for longer and will help to postpone the onset of folds and wrinkles. Eventually, the fillers will break down and naturally dissolve in the skin.


Dermal fillers are highly suitable for those who have been affected by the ageing process and have suffered a loss of facial volume and shape as a result. These concerns can diminish your confidence and can lead to social withdrawal or reduced quality of life. It is also suitable for anyone seeking to maintain their facial contour, postpone the effects of ageing or refine particular areas of the face. For instance, dermal fillers have been sought by many patients merely wanting to add volume to naturally thin lips. Additionally, some patients wish to treat dark shadows or hollows under the eyes, to embrace a less fatigued, more alert appearance.

Candidates should be in generally good health and should also consider establishing and maintaining a healthy skin care routine. Using natural products that are tailored to your skin type and have scientifically proven results will help to support and boost the skin’s texture, keeping the face vibrant, smooth and clear.


Shape Clinic’s vision is to design a holistic beauty plan that captures and expands on your most natural beauty. Drawing on this vision, Dr Liew has gathered artfully combined skincare treatments and procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, to help patients restore energy and shape to their face without compromising on proportion or natural movement. By carefully assessing your skin type and aesthetic goals, Dr Liew aims to find the treatments that will work best for you at your current stage of life. Shape Clinic is driven to help you embrace your best-looking and most confident growing self.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

While dermal fillers primarily serve to add volume to areas of the face, anti-wrinkle injections help to actively reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases that form over time. This non-surgical procedure serves to correct the aged and fatigued appearance by relaxing the muscles that produce the lines and subtly elevating the skin for a tighter and smoother complexion. The most common areas of treatment include the crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines.

Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are often combined to produce a more fulfilling rejuvenation of the face. The two treatments cooperate to both clear the face of creases and folds and restore the volume that has diminished with age. The result is a more comprehensive facial improvement and a younger-looking profile. When completed together, the treatments work to accentuate and revitalise the face’s natural features for a subtle, yet transformative glow.

Total Face Enhancement

A total face enhancement is a comprehensive procedure that addresses all parts of the face. In harmony with Shape Clinic’s vision of holistic beauty, a total face enhancement combines a range of skincare treatments to offer patients a complete skin and structural rejuvenation.

Depending on your aesthetic goals and the area you wish to treat, this procedure may combine skincare, laser work and advanced non-surgical procedures, including dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, lower face and jawline re-sculpting. Pioneered by Dr Liew, this treatment embraces the face’s features in unity, and serves to re-contour and ultimately restore facial features for an aesthetically ideal oval shape.
