What are the indications?
Dermal fillers is designed for correcting medium to deep lines as well as skin blemishes, for example laugh lines, nasolabial wrinkles and worry lines, and even for lip contours. Fillers can also be used to fill out lips and facial contours (cheeks and chin).
Is it painful?
We aim to keep you as comfortable as possible during the procedure. We can apply numbing cream to numb the skin. Certain areas, such as lips, fare better with nerve blocks.
How long does the procedure take?
The preparation usually takes longer than the procedure itself! Once we start injecting, the procedure is usually completed within 5 minutes. Plus you’ll get to add your point of view during the procedure too. You’ll get to see the change as it happens, so you can add your opinion to what your desired results look like.
Are any precautionary measures necessary after the injection?
You should not apply any make-up to your face for the first twelve hours after the injection. Avoid using the sauna and steam room, as well as exposure to UV rays or extreme cold for the first ten days. Apply a high factor sun cream to the injected areas when sunbathing for the first few days.
How long does the effect last?
Most fillers in the hyaluronic acid family will last 6-12 months, although there is often significant individual variation. FWith Visagel, the special technology used to produce the crosslink ensures that the gentle decomposition of the hyaluronic acid takes much longer under normal circumstances.
Are there any contraindications?
Treatment is not recommended in the case of known allergies to hyaluronic acid products, skin infections or whilst pregnant and breastfeeding. It is important that you not only tell the doctor about any pre-existing medical conditions during the treatment consultation, but also that you describe your expectations. Your doctor will help you decide whether this treatment is right for you, and will also determine whether there are any contraindications with regard to the injection in your case.
Are there any undesirable side effects?
In some cases painless or painful redness or swelling may occur following injection. This generally subsides within a few hours or days. Occasionally a localised inflammatory reaction may be experienced several weeks after the injection. This can occur with any degradable or nondegradable material.
It’s best to ask your doctor about these occasional side effects and other risks sometimes associated with this type of treatment. The appropriate therapy should be applied according to symptoms.
