Dermal Fillers - What happens when I have my treatment?
Prior to a dermal fillers treatment
Prior to any dermal filler treatment, a mild anaesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area for your comfort. The dermal filler is then injected into the skin beneath the wrinkle with a very fine needle. Your Nurse therapist may suggest that you have a small injection to numb the area prior to the filler injections.
Following a dermal fillers treatment
A dermal fillers treatment can be very quick and effective and have a minimal impact on your time. It takes 20-40 minutes depending on the number of lines and wrinkles treated. Make-up can be applied immediately after a dermal filler treatment and you can go straight back to your daily routine. It is common to have some redness and swelling following the treatment, although this usually resolves after a few hours and the results can be seen instantly.
How long will a dermal fillers treatment last?
You will probably not need to have another treatment for around 4 - 6 months. Your fully qualified Cosmetic Nurse Counsellor will advise you to return to the clinic after a couple of weeks to see how you are getting on and whether you need to have some more filler injected to achieve the optimum result.
A great advantage of dermal filler treatments is that they are long-lasting, but not permanent, which gives you the option to reassess your needs, once the initial effects have worn off.
