How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the areas being treated, the procedure normally takes 20-40 minutes.
How long do the results last?
The effects of dermal fillers vary depending on the condition of your skin, area being treated and product used. As a very general rule of thumb, you can expert the results of dermal fillers to last 6-12 months.
Will the procedure hurt?
The procedure can be uncomfortable, so local anaesthetic is sometimes used in the area.
How many sessions will I need?
Most clients only require one session to achieve the desired results. Some people choose to have occasional top-ups to maintain the look.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas). There may be some bruising in the area so you may want to consider this if you are planning trips away or special days.
Are there any alternatives to this procedure?
Depending on the problem you are trying to solve, alternative treatments may be available. You can discuss this with your friendly co-ordinator or non-surgical practitioner who will be able to guide you as to the best treatments.
Can I combine this procedure with other procedures?
Yes, many clients choose to have other procedures at the same time.
