Before we get started with any treatment, we will have a no-obligation consultation to pinpoint any issues and talk about your goals. This conversation will involve relevant medical and family history to ensure the treatment you are seeking is right for you.
We will then discuss your expected results and any associated risks with the procedure before moving forward.
After cleaning the injection site with an antibacterial cleanser, we administer the dermal filler through a very fine needle or cannula. Most patients report experiencing minimal discomfort, but we will usually numb the area using topical or vibration anesthesia.
The entire treatment process depends on the number of areas you’d like treated. On average, a typical appointment is about an hour. After injecting the filler, we will take a few moments to massage the gel into the treatment site and evaluate the result to ensure it meets your final expectations.
Once we have achieved the desired result, we’ll gently clean off any markings around the injections sites.
You may experience some swelling, bruising, and mild asymmetry for the next few days, but any side effects should go away within one to two weeks following treatment.
Your results from dermal fillers could last anywhere from 6-18 months depending on the type of filler used.
