Laser Clinics Australia's Medical Director Dr Jonathan Hopkirk answers Micro Filler FAQs

We sit down with our Medical Director Dr. Jonathan Hopkirk to discuss the revolutionary new cosmetic injectable treatment, Micro Filler.

Dr. Hopkirk is an Australian trained medical doctor who has completed a Bachelor in Human Anatomy and Structural Biology, Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. Dr. Hopkirk has also obtained full certification in anti-wrinkle and cosmetic injectables.

Hi Dr. Hopkirk, thanks for joining us! Can you tell us a bit about Micro Filler and what makes this cosmetic injectable treatment so groundbreaking?

Micro Filler is a non-surgical cosmetic injectable treatment. Micro Filler is like dermal fillers in that they contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA). The name may sound scary, but we promise it’s not. HA secretly holds the key to smooth, flawless and hydrated skin. This substance works to maintain skin hydration by binding closely with water and supporting vital collagen and elastin, which work to maintain the integrity and suppleness of our skin. Think of Micro Filler like micro-droplets of a long-lasting, water-loving substance, which will absorb water, bringing deep hydration, improved firmness and improved smoothness to the skin.

Hello hydration! And what areas and skin concerns can you treat with Micro Filler?

Micro Filler is unique in that it can treat the whole face at once which makes it a convenient treatment. Additionally, we can treat troublesome areas that no treatment has ever been able to reach before, like under the eyes. So, with this treatment we can treat the upper section, mid-section and lower section of the face for fine lines, dull skin and thin skin, all in one appointment.

We know a lot of people will be excited about the idea of treating under the eyes. How quickly can you clients expect to see their Micro Filler results?

Results can be seen after the first treatment with the full effects after 10 days. For optimum results, a course of 3 Full Face treatments at 3-4 week intervals is recommended.

For people who are looking to do the treatment, can you tell us who the best candidates are for Micro Filler?

Micro Filler is suitable for people 18 years + and all skin types. They are extremely effective in treating early signs of ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, imperfections such as acne scars, poor skin texture, dehydrated skin and more. It’s also the perfect treatment for those who simply wish for a refresh of their skin to further improve the skin’s hydration and moisture.
