Our skin is remarkable, protecting our bodies from the outside world and repairing itself every day. However, with age, lifestyle and environmental factors, like sun damage, smoking and poor diet, the condition of our skin deteriorates.
Fillers are designed to refine your facial features by lifting and shaping contours, filling lines and wrinkles or creating natural volume and refresh your skin from within with a boost of deep hydration, for a refreshed and vibrant look that lasts.
The broad range of filler products used by healthcare practitioners helps to provide a treatment program tailored to your individual needs.
What to expect:
Come to your consultation prepared. Be honest with yourself about your wishes and questions. You will learn how filler products can be safely used to suit your wishes, and you will be asked about your medical history. When you leave your consultation you should feel well informed about your options, and you should know what results to expect.
What should I bear in mind when considering a treatment?
First of all you should always contact a qualified practitioner to be assured that the treatment will be performed correctly. Your treatment should be performed in a medical environment that affords you privacy and is spotlessly clean. You may want to request to see your chosen clinician’s training certificate and insurance certificate to ensure they are appropriately trained and insured for the treatment they are providing.
Who is qualified to administer treatments?
Only a medically qualified practitioner should perform treatments. Depending on your country’s legislation, this may include plastic surgeons, cosmetic clinicians, dermatologists, cosmetic dentists, or aesthetic nurses.
What should I expect from my chosen clinician?
You should receive comprehensive information and a detailed explanation regarding the treatment.
You should be informed of the possibilities and limitations of treatments with hyaluronic acid
You should receive information about possible side effects and precautions for treatment
You should be informed of the cost of the treatment and possible follow-up treatments
Your questions should be answered to your full satisfaction
How are Fillers administered?
First, the healthcare practitioner disinfects the area to be treated. A small amount of the appropriate filler is then injected into the skin through a fine needle or blunt micro-cannula to fill wrinkles, add volume, shape your face or fill your lips. After the injection, your practitioner may gently massage the treated area to even out the result.
How long does a treatment take?
A treatment does not take long. Depending on the area and indication, it takes approximately 15-45 minutes. A touch-up treatment is sometimes performed approximately two weeks after the initial treatment to optimize the results.
Is the treatment painful?
Some people may experience mild discomfort. Most fillers contain an integrated local anaesthetic, lidocaine, to provide you with a more comfortable treatment experience. You and your healthcare practitioner may decide whether additional pain relief is needed.
