Are all fillers the same?
No. There are two classes of dermal fillers: permanent and temporary. There are fewer permanent fillers
available than temporary. The demand is greater for the temporary. The temporary fillers are absorbed by the body over time, usually in 6 months and require repeated treatments to maintain the effect. Due to the potential side effects from permanent fillers we do not offer this treatment.
What is involved in this treatment?
A local anaesthetic can be applied to the area to numb any sensation (some patients choose not to have this). The filler is then injected just below the surface of the skin. Ice is then applied to reduce swelling and bruising.
How will I know what is the right filler for me?
Your practitioner is an expert in this field and has years or experience injecting. You will have a full consultation with her and she will discuss with you your areas of concern and the outcome you desire, together you will decide what is best for you.
How long will the treatment session last?
This is dependant upon the area treated and the filler being injected. To give you an idea, it is between 30 minutes for small areas and up to 1 hour for multiple areas.
How often will I need treatments?
This depends on you as an individual and the filler used, usually 12 months for temporary fillers.
How do I know the clinic/practitioner is safe?
Always choose a qualified Nurse Practitioner, Doctor or Dentist who has a minimum of 5 years working in the field of aesthetics.This is a medical treatment and MUST NOT be administered by anyone other than the above.
