Prior to receiving dermal fillers, patients attend an informative consultation with a professional to discuss the treatment, goals and any concerns. This way a treatment program can be created to suit individual needs.
During the procedure, the dermal filler is injected into your skin using a very fine needle. Depending on the enhancement you are trying to achieve, the filler will be injected along deep facial folds, wrinkles or hollowed out areas of the face that have lost volume due to the ageing process. Normally, treatments will only last around 30 minutes. The procedure is well tolerated by most patients and there is minimal discomfort.
After receiving dermal fillers, there may be some redness and swelling around the injection sites. This is normal and will only be temporary, usually disappearing within 24 hours of treatment. Your results will be instantly recognisable, with a noticeable rejuvenation. There is no downtime associated with dermal fillers, which means patients are free to leave the clinic after the procedure. You can resume your daily routine and return to work straightaway.
The results of Dermal fillers can last for up to 24 months. But, just like results, this can vary from person to person. They are classed as a temporary treatment, as the body will naturally absorb them over time.
