Fillers And Their Effects

The effects of a treatment will last 9-18 months depending on your type of skin, the area being treated, the amount injected and the type of filler used. The effect on lips is usually 4-6 months. Touch-up treatments are recommended to maintain your new look.

Are there any side effects?

After an injection it may be a short time before you feel comfortable resuming normal activities. Side effects are fairly rare and related to the injection, such as bruising and swelling at the injection site. No important dates should be scheduled however within two weeks of a treatment to ensure any swelling or bruising subsides. Patients prone to cold sores should be placed on anti-viral medication prior to injection.
