Dermal fillers are injections used to increase the volume of lips and cheeks. The fillers give a finer definition to the lips and also fills out wrinkles. The effects can last from a few months to over a year, depending on the type of filler. If you’re considering dermal fillers, please make an appointment to see one of our experienced clinicians to consider what may suit you as each person is unique and one size does not fit all! It is important that this procedure is carried out by a properly qualified practitioner in a clean and safe environment.
What to expect: You have a choice of a local anaesthetic cream or injection. The filler is injected through a series of small injections and is then gently massaged in. The whole procedure may take anything between 30 minutes to an hour. You should expect some discomfort but it should not be very painful. Afterwards, you can expect some swelling, redness and tenderness for about 24 hours. Risks are uncommon and your clinician will explain these to you before you decide to proceed.
