What does the procedure entail and is it painful?
Typically, the dermal filler approach requires little to no anaesthetic as the dermal filler contains local anaesthetic in itself. The procedure is simple and straight-forward, involving a few small injections directly into the desired area. The outcome can be seen almost immediately. To maintain the desired results, regular repeated treatments are needed. There may be a slight discomfort whilst the filler is being injected, nonetheless, to provide some relief and ease as much discomfort as possible, our fillers contain a pre-mixed local anaesthetic.
What are the side effects?
Clients can easily confuse side effects to reactions, so it’s very important to understand what side effects to expect.
Side effects that are completely normal after facial injections – can include;
Reactions generally occur immediately after the needle injection and are generally mild to moderate and commonly disappear shortly after the injection and resolve themselves a few days after the injection/s into the skin.
