What are dermal fillers?
A non-surgical cosmetic treatment used for adding enhanced volume to areas of the face.
When will I see full results?
Results can vary from person to person. On average, full results can be seen after 5-7 days.
Can I exercise after having dermal filler injections?
It is beneficial to wait at least a week after dermal fillers before doing any strenuous exercise to avoid risk of infection and movement of the filler. We recommend you avoid yoga too since inverted positions such as headstands could increase the risk of bruising and swelling.
How soon after having dermal fillers can I touch my face?
Do not touch or rub the treated area for at least six hours after treatment. After that, you can gently clean the area and apply light make-up.
How long does it take for facial fillers to settle?
It can take up to two weeks for facial fillers to settle into place.
Should I expect to feel any pain after having dermal fillers injected in my face?
Most patients will not experience any pain after having dermal fillers. But some people may find they have a little bit of soreness and/or mild bruising at the site of injection.
How long does it take for dermal filler treatment to work?
You can expect to see the results of the procedure immediately. If there is any swelling, this should take 5-7 days to settle down.
What are some of the possible side effects I should be aware of?
Possible side effects include:
- Red or purple, swollen, bruised or discoloured skin
- itchy skin
- lumpy skin
- prolonged firmness
- an abscess, a nodule or a granuloma (a small area of inflammation)
- local necrosis (tissue death)
- an allergic reaction
In rare cases, a scab can form where the treatment was administered, which can result in a scar.
Allergic reaction can occur after Dermal Fillers. Should you notice any discoloration, tightness of the skin, blanching, pustules, scabbing or unusual discomfort after treatment, please call us on 07979 552338 immediately.
