What is involved with Dermal Filler treatments?

 

  • Initially we will assess your face. We will evaluate your appearance and skin tone and examine the areas of your face to be augmented. Photographs may then be taken of the areas to be treated.
  • The injection site will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent, and an anaesthetic cream applied to the skin for approximately 30 minutes.
  • The injection usually only takes a few moments per site. The process of injecting and massaging the area is performed and the skin will be re-evaluated. If required more filler will then be added to the area. Depending on the areas being treated the process can take between 15 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Once we have the desired outcome, markings will be cleaned off. The area may feel a bit tender for a day but is not usually painful enough to require pain relief.
