What do dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers treat areas of soft tissue in the face which may have lost volume, contour, or structure due to the natural ageing process. Where skin thins and loses its strength and laxity, dermal fillers provide added support to enhance certain facial features. Contouring the cheekbone, plumping the cheeks, enhancing the lips, and improving the appearance of nose-to-mouth facial folds are all achieved using fillers.
When will I see my results?
You will notice a difference in your treated area immediately following treatment, though you may experience some swelling. After allowing this to settle over the next 2 days, your optimum results will be visible.
How long will my results last?
Every client is different, so results tend to vary from person to person. Generally speaking, your dermal filler results could last for up to 6 to 12 months. After this time, top-up appointments will be needed to maintain them.
Are they safe?
Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance that closely mimic a naturally occurring bodily sugar known as hyaluronic acid. This makes them very safe to use within the skin, as the body naturally breaks this down over time. Your treatments are also carried out by a registered and experienced medical professional, so you can rest assured you are in safe hands.
Are there any side effects?
There some minor side effects to this treatment, however these are completely natural and nothing to worry about. You may experience some swelling, redness, and slight sensitivity for 2 days after your treatment, but this should subside with a cold compress. You might also experience some minor bruising at the injection sites but resisting alcohol for 2 days either side of your appointment should decrease this risk.
Does this treatment hurt?
We use a topical anaesthetic in the form of a numbing cream to ensure you are comfortable during your treatment. Discomfort is usually minor, with most clients only experiencing a small scratch at each point of injection.
