Do the injections hurt?
Apart from a tiny pin prick when the fine needle enters the skin, there should be virtually no pain, thanks to the local anaesthetic pre-mixed into the fillers. In fact the deeper the filler is placed, the more comfortable it is. Some people may notice a dull ache for a few days after treatment but this tends to happen with deeper placed fillers.
What are the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid?
A treatment with Restylane or Emervel provides an easy way to enhance your looks. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly, and lasts around one year*. With Restylane you will achieve a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression as Restylane is not a toxin and does not act on muscle movements. Remember your face changes over time, Restylane allows you to control you looks subtly as you age.
What are the risks with dermal fillers?
Restylane is the most scientifically documented HA based dermal filler in the world with comprehensive studies that support its safety and efficacy. Restylane has been used in over 11 million treatments worldwide during the last 15 years.
* An initial course of Restylane skinbooster treatments is recommended for the best aesthetic outcome, consult with your doctor to discuss your personal treatment needs. Duration can vary and is dependant upon your body's own metabolism, genetics, lifestyle as well as area treated.
Dermal fillers are made up of gels and if these are injected into blood vessels they can cause blockages. This happens extremely rarely in skilled medical hands, and should it happen, your doctor may be able to clear the blockage with a variety of techniques in the clinic. This is why we believe that only doctors provide dermal filler injections.
The most common side effects with dermal fillers are minimal bruising, slight tenderness and temporary redness over the injection sites. Rarer side effects include prolonged bruising, delayed swellings and even rarer, allergies.
