Q&A

Dermal Fillers

Are dermal fillers safe?

They are clinically proven to be safe. There have been over 10 million treatments worldwide and there is over 13 years of clinical excellence as testimony to its safety and quality.

Does the treatment hurt?

We are able to perform the treatment pain-free as our practitioner is a dentist and can inject anaesthetic for your comfort. Currently there are dermal fillers on the market that contain an anaesthetic and with use of surface cream most of the procedures can be performed painlessly without any local anaesthetic.

Is there any downtime after the procedure?

You can expect slight redness, swelling and tenderness. On some occasions you could have slight bruising however; this is temporary and generally disappears after a few days. With lip enhancement it is wise to choose your appointment with care as your lips could be swollen for a few days. Cold compress on the treatment area will reduce the swelling.

How long do the effects last?

The effects with dermal fillers are long lasting but not permanent. For lip enhancement the treatment lasts from 6 – 9 months and around a year in other facial areas. Some people are satisfied with the effects of the fillers for longer periods of time.

Injectable wrinkle reduction treatment

Does it hurt?

The needle used for injectable wrinkle treatment is very fine and our clients report that the discomfort is minimal. However, we do offer a topical anaesthetic cream that needs to be applied 30 minutes before your treatment.

Are there any side effects?

In our experience the only side effects that have been reported are occasionally a slight headache and some mild tingling feeling in the area that has been treated. As part of your after care you will be given a list of possible side effects.

How long does the procedure take?

The injectable wrinkle reduction procedure is very quick and can be done in 5-15 minutes depending on the number of injections. It can take from 3 days to 2 weeks for the full effect to show.

How long does it last?

The effects can last up to 3 months for your first course of treatment. Our practitioner recommends keeping up the injections for the first year of treatment to retrain the muscles effectively. With subsequent courses the effects can last much longer.

When can I be treated?

We incorporate facial aesthetic procedures as part of our regular day’s schedules. You can book an appointment at a time that is convenient to you where possible.

Who does the facial aesthetic treatment?

Our cosmetic dentist, Ken Place, undertakes all these procedures. He has attended many courses and maintains continual professional development.
