That is because these injectable fillers are fast, convenient, secure, and successful treatments (in experienced hands!).

How do these fillers work?

A fine and clean needle is used to inject the hyaluronic acid gel into the skin. If these fillers are injected by the expert hands after determining things like the location and depth of a wrinkle or fold, the consequences are like wrinkles lift immediately and the lips plump quickly. From a visual point of view, fillers refresh and replenish the signs of aging.

What type of wrinkles can be treated?

The areas which are commonly treated: nasolabial folds (from the nose edge to the mouth angle), wrinkles around the forehead and lip, and deep hollows beneath the eyes, but other sites can be treated as well. The wrinkles around the eye and mouth can be eliminated or diminished. These fillers can add good volume to the cheeks and give you rejuvenated skin.

How much it hurt?

This is very specific and depending on how susceptible you are to pain and what area will be treated. Injections can be mildly painful (if you score 10 to the worse pain, the BOTOX® typically has 1/10 pain like a mosquito bite and 2-3 out of 10), but the injection is also very tolerable. Due to the range of approaches like ice wrapping and/or local anesthetic, the filler does not feel.

How long do the results last?

As the hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler is composed of a substance that is identical to your own skin, it often affects product composition by the same ongoing mechanism (aging and natural skin turnover).  The length of the medication outcome ranges from person to person. The effects depend on some factors like the composition of the skin, diet, age, and place of the procedure. Many patients opt to undergo a touch-up treatment that lasts up to 6-12 months.

How will my treated area look after the procedure?

Slight redness, swelling, and tenderness may develop in the treated area immediately after the procedure. This is a common outcome, and the pain is temporary. Mild bruising is usually uncommon and can be concealed with makeup. It resolves after 7-10 days. It usually goes away within a few days. After the injection, bumps in the skin may be visible, and they are temporary.
