Frequently Asked Questions
The treatments are performed either with a cannula, a blunt round needle or with single injection which bruising and swelling is to be expected which reduces over time. With any treatments, there are always some adverse effects. Insertion of Dermal fillers can lead to vascular occlusion and tissue necrosis which is the death of the surrounding tissue due to lack of blood supply. This is rare and very likely is a cannula is used to administer the Dermal filler in the most high risk area e.g. Jawline.
Some client’s may experience some level of discomfort which is usually bearable. Before the procedure starts, client’s are given the opportunity to numb the area with an ice pack. The Dermal fillers which we use are mixed with lidocaine (local anaesthetic) which makes the procedure less uncomfortable
The treated will be numb for a few hours or so. There will be swelling and possibly mild bruising with the single needle injection. With the cannula injection, there tends to be less or no bruising. The mild swelling can last a few days or so and therefore it is recommended that the after care instructions are followed through thoroughly. However straight after the treatment, the client can return back to their normal activities.
