As you get older you may begin to notice lines and wrinkles. These can be in the form of nose to mouth lines, or folds. There might also be lines from the edge of your mouth to your chin, which are called marionette lines. If you are a smoker you may also have lines around your top lip. These lines and many others like it can be treated with non-surgical procedures using dermal filler. How do you treat the lines? By using dermal fillers, they do exactly that, give your face a fuller appearance and smooth away the lines.
Is it painful?
We give you a topical anaesthetic before we begin the procedure so it can be administered
Is there any bruising?
There might be some swelling and a little bruising after the procedure, but that should disappear within a few days. Arnica gel can help with this. Don’t put creams or make-up on the area for at least 8 hours in order to avoid infection. If you have had fillers there might also be some swelling and bruising, which will be temporary. Try not touch the area which was treated for at least a few hours.
Will I see the results immediately?
As soon as any bruising or swelling goes down you will see the benefits.
How long does the treatment last?
Dermal fillers last about 6-12 months.
Can anyone have the treatment?
You shouldn’t use dermal fillers when you are pregnant, or breastfeeding. Although the dermal fillers we use don’t migrate through the body, there are no studies to show the effects on an unborn or feeding child. Medically it is recommended that cosmetic procedures aren’t carried out at this time. You will be asked to fill out a medical form and inform the practitioner of any medical history.
