- How long will it take before I see results?
Results are expected almost immediately after your injection – or at the latest within 24 hours in cases of bruising.
- How long will the results last for?
In general, lip filler injections last approximately 4-6 months. However, individuals with higher or lower than average muscle activity can expect proportionally higher or lower lasting results, respectively.
- Is the injection painful?
Filler injections are very routine and minimally invasive. Low to moderate discomfort will be experienced. With that said, prior to the injection, the area is anaesthetised using a strong numbing cream for maximum patient comfort.
- How long before I can go back to my normal life?
Some redness and irritation will be experienced during the administration of the injection and you can almost immediately resume your normal activities with some limitations in order for your injections to work effectively (SEE AFTERCARE).
- Do I need a follow-up appointment after my injection?
Usually not. However, patients are offered a complimentary touch-up on ALL our wrinkle injections should they need to within 3 days of the appointment. This is facilitated as some individuals may prefer small adjustments once the treatment results settle in after the bruising disappears.
- Is the treatment safe? Any side effects?
Our senior practitioners will ONLY proceed with injectables having individually examined you on assessment against any contra-indications OR red flags considering your past & current medical history as well as your aesthetic goals.
You will be advised in writing and verbally on consultation about any possible treatment side effects.
