Dermal fillers involve small injections of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It’s a crystal clear gel which constantly attracts water, allowing skin hydration and moisturising from beneath the skin, thus adding volume and contour to the facial skin.
As we age, our own production of hyaluronic acid diminishes, causing the skin to lose volume and plumpness. Hyaluronic acid fills out the creases and folds of your skin without affecting your natural expression. It is non-permanent and absorbed naturally over time.
Dermal fillers can last anything from 4-12 months depending on the area injected and the type of dermal filler used.
The treatment takes under an hour and there is no requirement for skin testing prior to treatment.
A number of injections will be required to the area to be treated and although are instant, the final result often takes a few more weeks.
A topical anaesthetic cream applied prior to treatment will numb the area to be treated and after treatment, some common injection-related reactions may occur. These include redness, swelling, discomfort, itching and bruising over the site of the injections. All unwanted side effects are usually transient, lasting only a few days.
If you are prone to cold sores, treatment may occasionally precipitate an eruption so it’s advisable to use topical treatments as a preventative measure.
Lip enhancement can often produce a few days ‘downtime’ and the lips may swell for 24-48 hours, post-treatment. We at Forever Young Lounge will help you schedule your appointment to fit in with days off work, allowing time for the initial effects to settle. You will always be provided with after-care advice, and given contact details should you have any questions or concerns.
