Most people will find the area is a little red, and a little bit swollen for the first 24-48 hours. This is particularly the case with lip augmentation. Occasionally the treated area may bruise. Sometimes people may be able to feel the product under the skin initially, but this settles over a week or so.
Depending upon which formulation is used, and what you require, they can last from 6 months to 3 years. They break down naturally over time. If you don’t like the effect achieved, Hyaluronic Acid fillers can be simply dissolved away under the skin by our team.
The results with most fillers are instant, thought may take a few days to settle and establish fully.
The injections maybe slightly uncomfortable but normally no anaesthesia is needed. However, some products contain a local anaesthetic to help minimise discomfort. A small amount of massage may be performed afterwards to the area to help the product to sit correctly.
The gel is injected into the skin using an ultra fine needle.
Popular areas to add volume and fullness include the lips and cheeks. For smoothing and plumping lines and wrinkles, popular treatment areas include nose-mouth lines, jowl lines, below the eyes and around the lips.
Dermal Fillers frequently consist of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance naturally found within the skin which contributes to volume and skin hydration. Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler is formulated as a gel which is smooth and can be long lasting.
