How long does it take for the treatments to work?
The procedure usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes and in some patients the results can be seen straight after treatment.
What can and can’t I do after the treatment?
Most patients can carry on life as normal as any redness can be covered with makeup. You should leave the treated area alone for 48 hours to let it settle, and it is advisable to not have a facial or similar treatment that may disturb the products or expose the newly-treated areas to strong sunlight for 2 to 3 days.
How long does the treatment last for?
The treatment should last for around 6 to 12 months.
How often will I need to top up?
Most patients have top-ups when they feel the effect is starting to wear off, which can be any time between 6 and 12 months.
Are there any side-effects?
After the treatment there may be some redness and minimal swelling, which normally settles in 1 to 2 days. Occasionally some patients can suffer some bruising at the injection site.
Who is suitable for these treatments?
Almost everyone who meets the criteria we will go through during your consultation, apart from those who are pregnant or breast feeding.
What happens if I do not have a top-up?
Correction of the wrinkles and the enhanced lip effect should subside gradually until your skin looks like it did before the treatment.
Are there any long-term problems?
Dermal Fillers use material that occur naturally in the body, and subsequently over time can be completely broken down by the body itself.
Are the injections painful?
As doctors do all the treatments we are able to use local anaesthetic injections which allow the treatment to be pain-free and comfortable.
Can it be used with other anti wrinkle injections?
Yes, sometimes to create the best effect other anti-wrinkle injections can be used in conjunction with this treatment.
