FAQs

What are the key benefits of dermal fillers?

Non-surgical approach for youthful contours:-

– Minimal down time
– Subtle natural appearance

How is it carried out?

A topical anaesthetic cream is applied for approximately 20 minutes prior to having the treatment which numbs the area to reduce any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

When can I notice the results?

The day of your procedure.

How many treatments will I need?

Dermal fillers are naturally broken down by the body and therefore reapplication of treatment should be considered within 6-9 months.

Are the any side effects?

In rare circumstances, individuals with hypersensitivity towards lidocaine or hyaluronic acid should not use Juvéderm®.

Effects that have been experienced include swelling, pain, discolouration and tenderness of the treated areas and transient redness. However recovery is quick and usually takes 1-2 days for skin injection or within 1 week for lip area.
