What risks do dermal fillers carry?

Because our range of dermal fillers are made with Hyaluronic Acid and this is naturally found within the body the risks of an allergic reaction is rare. Common side effects after filler procedures are swelling, redness, bruising, itching and tenderness all of which subside after a day or two.

Is it painful?

With all our dermal filler procedures we use lidocaine numbing cream to numb the area to make the procedure as comfortable as possible, we also use Juvéderm filler which contains lidocaine making the procedure as painless as possible. Most people do not find it painful.

How long will my filler last?

Most fillers last between 6 to 18 months depending on what product is used, we can discuss individual requirements prior to your treatment being carried out. There are also other factors in how long fillers last such as an individual’s metabolic rate, skin type, age, and lifestyle.

What should I do after I have had my fillers?

After having your filler treatment our nurses will go through the aftercare instructions with you, this includes (for the first 24-48 hours): not applying make up to the injection site, not using sunbeds/exposing the area to heat or sunlight, don’t have any facials/facial treatments and also don’t exercise as this can cause the filler to migrate.


Is getting anti-wrinkle injections sore?

This procedure is not painful, we use ultrafine needles to ensure comfort to our patients. Numbing cream is also applied to the areas being treated prior to injecting.

How soon will I see my results?

This varies from patient to patient; some people see results anywhere from day 2 but it can take up to 14 days to fully relax the muscles. A free top up is provided 2 weeks after your initial treatment if clinically required.
