What are fillers?
Fillers are an injectable gel containing hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance produced in our body that restores youthful volume to cheeks, cheekbones, nasolabial lines, tear trough, forehead, and chin, that have become thin due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss. The results are immediate, soft and natural looking. These non-surgical cosmetic treatments are designed to support the development of healthy body image to revitalize the way you look and feel.
Who are the suitable candidates for fillers treatment?
Anybody can undergo fillers treatment but the patient should have realistic expectations from the procedure, as only moderate aging changes can be improved by fillers like
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette lines (lines along the angle of mouth)
- Lines on corners of the mouth (smokers lines)
- Thin lips
- Under eye circles, tear troughs
- Cheek definitions
- Nose shaping
- Revolumize shallow contours
How long will the effects of fillers last?
The average effect of fillers last for 12-24 months. It may sometimes be longer or shorter depending on
- The Age of the person
- Physiology of the individual
- Lifestyle (smoking and exposure to sun or UV rays may shorten the effect)
- The amount injected and the practitioner’s technique
How long will the procedure take?
The procedure takes just about 30-45 minutes, depending on the extent and area under consideration for injecting.
How long will it take to show results?
Results with fillers are immediate and instant. We show you the pre-treatment and post-treatment results soon after injecting fillers for you to appreciate the results. However, best results can be seen in 2-3 weeks.
Will the treatment hurt?
Depending on the injection technique used, we will be able to offer you a local anesthetic, so as to reduce the discomfort that you may go through.
When can I return to work and resume my social life?
The aesthetic results are immediate and very natural looking. You might experience some redness and bruise after the injection that can be concealed with makeup or concealers. You can return to work and resume your social life almost immediately.
How much does the treatment cost?
This entirely depends on what treatment one is getting done, and how much of the products are required.
