How does the procedure work?
The most common type of fillers, are made up of a substance that is present in humans, particularly in the skin and joints. A stabilised version of this substance is injected under the skin to add volume, correct deficiencies and wrinkles or add hydration. There are several products available with varying consistencies and methods of injection. They are a safe, temporary and versatile treatment for the improvement of many different areas and skin concerns.
WHAT WILL THE PATIENT EXPERIENCE DURING THE PROCEDURE?
As many of these products now contain local anaesthetic, discomfit is minimal, however local anaesthetic cream or nerve blocks may still be required. The product is injected via a few different entry points depending on the area being treated, using either a needle or cannula.
WHAT CAN THE PATIENT EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
Swelling at the injection site is common and generally more severe when the lips are injected. This generally subsides within two days. Bruising can occur after the injection, but usually resolves within seven days. It can take up to two weeks for the swelling and bruising to completely subside and the final result to be revealed.
