In 1997 it achieved FDA approval for cosmetic use in the USA, 2002 in Australia, and by 2006 was granted a license by the MHRA in the UK for the treatment of frown lines. Worldwide, now more than 3 million anti-wrinkle treatments take place per year.

Can I Get Dermal Fillers Done As Prevention?

Receiving dermal fillers before you see wrinkles, lines, folds, creases, sagging skin, and lost volume may be the very best time to start an anti-aging regimen with dermal fillers. They can prevent those unwanted symptoms from appearing in the first place, and keep you looking youthful for as long as possible.


Can Fillers Be Combined With Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Absolutely! In fact, it’s common to have a combination of treatments done on your face at one time. Please consult one of our trained staff for more information.


What’s The Difference Beteween Dermal Fillers And Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

In short, fillers lift and smooth the wrinkled and hollowed areas through volume replacement. Wrinkle injections chemically stimulate the muscles causing the wrinkles to relax and release the folds of skin seen as wrinkles.


How Long Will My Fillers Last?

This depends on the location and the type of filler used. Typically this ranges between 3 or 4 months up to 18 months or longer.


How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost?

Regardless of the type of filler used, it won’t come cheap. There’s a huge range in price based on location, number of units used, and the skill level of your injector. Think about how large the area you’re treating is too. We’re basically talking in terms of pricey to even pricier—expect something between hundreds to thousands of dollars. For the most accurate estimate, schedule a consultation with our medical staff today.


Where Is The Best Place To Have Filers Done? 

Using a quality practice like Ignite Medispa, you can be guaranteed a natural, appealing, and positive result.


Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

In the hands of a qualified, trained injector, fillers are very safe. However, if you fall prey to the advertising games of the low cost, high volume clinics, you risk being injected with chemically altered products administered by poorly trained injectors. In these situations, your chances of having a negative or harmful outcome are greatly increased.

Acne is a common skin disease involving blockage of the pilosebaceous units (oil glands and hair follicles in the skin), that frequently leads to inflammation.  The key factor behind acne is genetics, and around 1 in 11 of the population suffer from acne. The typically affected areas are the face and back. 

During teenage years, males suffer more with acne than females; however, during adulthood, women suffer more (and some women suffer from increased breakouts during pregnancy).

What Are The Causes Of Acne?

Addressing these factors shall reduce the likelihood of breakouts: 

  • Bacterial load (of Cutibacterium acnes) found in the skin; 
  • Reducing the amount of oil (sebum) that is produced; 
  • Reducing the amount of dead and/ or thickened skin on the surface (hyper keratinisation blocks the hair follicles). 

There is a plethora of external agents, lifestyle factors, and physiological states, that also aggravate acne.  Examples are medication (e.g. anticonvulsants and anabolic steroids), PCOS (polycystic ovaries), and pregnancy. 

What Are The Options Available For Dealing With Scarring Due To Acne?

At Ignite Medispa™, we offer medi-facials with salicylic acid and with benzoyl peroxide, which help to manage acne.  We also offer chemical peels and resurfacing to improve scarring.  

Acne-related scarring is improved by improving the topographical uniformity of the skin (i.e. reducing the difference in the irregularity of the skin).  This may be achieved in a number of ways: 

  • Subcision; 
  • Resurfacing. 

For those who cannot afford to have downtime, we have various energy-based devices, such as eTwo (by Candela Medical), TempSure (by Cynosure), and Vivace (by Cynosure), to help with scarring and skin rejuvenation. 

Ignite Medispa is a premium partner clinic for Cynosure, and we were delighted to be one of the first clinics in Australia to get the Vivace system (RF microneedling).  All of our staff have seen the excellent transformations provided by this system for many types of aged-, damaged-, and tired-looking- skin. 



  • There has been a lot of misinformation about the use of Accutane/Roaccutane (prescribed for severe acne, especially in younger people) and the fragility of the skin.  
  • Isotretinoin works at the level of the oil glands/hair follicles of the skin and it suppresses inflammation of the skin.  It is one of the few, clearly-proven approaches to addressing acne, and it results in significant improvement (typically >50%) after just 2-3 months’ use.  However, dry and fragile skin (with an increased likelihood of cracking) is a possibility. The skin is also more photosensitive, i.e. vulnerable to the damaging effects of UV light as found in the sun, so the use of something like Amaranté PNP (www.amarante.com.au) for its moisturizing and SPF benefits, is recommended. 
  • A common question that is asked is whether lip fillers may be administered whilst somebody is on isotretinoin.  Of course, the skin’s quality and the pros/ cons need to be considered by the doctor, but the answer, as a rule-of-thumb, is: ‘not’ an issue.  
  • If seeking fillers in other areas, then the question is whether there is ‘active’ acne or not.  If there is active acne, there shall be a higher risk of contamination if injecting through the inflamed area. 
  • Regarding receiving anti-wrinkle injections (botulinum neurotoxin type-A) when somebody is on treatment for acne, there is ‘no’ issue whatsoever.
