Once we’ve completed the complimentary skin analysis and have decided on whether or not dermal fillers are for you, you’ll meet with our Medical Practitioner to discuss the treatment. During this time, we’ll talk about your desired results, review your medical history and you will also have the chance to ask any questions before the treatment begins.
The Medical Practitioner will examine your facial structure to determine where to administer the fillers. Small amounts of filler will be injected into the areas where you have lost volume and desire more definition. The treatment typically takes around 30 – 45 minutes to complete. (please note this is a non-surgical treatment)
Typically, you’ll see results immediately. If there is any swelling, it should go down in a couple of days, and you will be able to see the full results. Depending on the area being treated, dermal fillers can last between 6-18 months.
The dermal fillers contain a pain-reducing local anesthetic to help manage any discomfort, ensuring the process is as painless as possible. You may also talk to your Medical practitioner about applying a topical numbing cream if you are concerned about further discomfort.
Our highly trained Medical Practitioners will be able to advise whether dermal fillers are right for you. To ensure your safety, it’s important to share your current state of health and is also vital to update changes to your health or medications with your North Medical Practitioner at each appointment.
Downtime is minimal with this treatment and most people can return to work or normal activities right away. Any swelling, tenderness or bruising typically only lasts a couple of days.
