Our aesthetic practitioner will work with your desires and concerns to give you the best possible look. This is discussed in detail during consultation. Our main goal is restore facial harmony whilst working on the contours of the face. Dermal filler can be applied to restore and plump lips, rejuvenate any wrinkles or folds or add to any areas lacking in volume. The amount of filler needed will depend on the area or areas treated. Our practitioner is highly skilled and trained to deal with any complications that may arise. Know you are in good hands when trusting us with your face.

Do keep 45 minutes aside for your appointment as this includes a consultation and 20 mins to numb the area. Final results last between 4-12 months on average.


Aftercare

How to care for your new look

Immediately after treatment you may notice a few of the following things:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Needle puncture marks
  • Asymmetry
  • Tenderness or lumps

These issues above are common with dermal filler and should resolve over the next few days to weeks. Your final result will be seen at about 4 weeks after treatment, and you can be reviewed to see if further treatments are required to achieve the planned results.

Immediately after the injections your face will be cleaned. You should not touch your face for 6 hours. After this you may clean your skin with water and a gentle cleanser.

Things to Avoid

  • Do not expose the area to intense heat (i.e. saunas, tanning)
  • Avoid pressure on the treated areas for the first few nights (i.e. sleep on back of possible)
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours
  • Do not use AHA, Retinols/Vitamin C for 24 hours
  • Avoid facials, facial waxing, Glycolic or AHA peels, IPL or energy based treatments and microdermabrasion for two weeks after treatment

Pain is usually mild and sometimes moderate after filler injections. There are areas which can be quite painful like the chin and the lips. Pain relief such as paracetamol may be taken. A cold compress applied the first 24 hours after injections may help to reduce the amount of swelling. Some patients also use arnica before and after treatment to reduce bruising.
