Frequently asked questions

Is Dermal filler painful?


Your doctor uses local anaesthetic at the entry sites and often uses blunt canulae to reduce discomfort and increase safety. Local anaesthetic creams can also be helpful. There is anaesthetic mixed with the fillers making the procedure more comfortable.




What to expect on your 1st visit?


At your 1st appointment you will have a detailed and thorough consultation with your doctor to discuss your concern, examine and prescribe the best course of treatment accordingly. If no contraindication and dermal filler is the most suitable option, treatment can be performed on the same day or rebook for another day.

If your doctor believes you may benefit from other treatments instead or in addition to dermal filler such as botox or laser treatments, it may be recommended.




Will you see immediate result?


Immediate result can be seen, but it is 2-3 weeks before you can judge the result. The skin can also improve in texture over a few weeks.




Is dermal filler the right ani-ageing treatment?


You can highly benefit from this treatment if you target the loss of volume and desire for enhanced look of facial features mainly on mid to lower face. However, if other treatments instead or in addition to dermal filler is suitable, it will be recommended by your doctor such as botox or laser technologies to increase skin resistance, boosting collagen production and improving overall tone and texture. If you have concern with redness on the skin or pigmentation, laser treatments can be highly effective to complement the dermal filler for dramatic changes yet natural looking result.
