A. Results are instantly visible. However, as fillers require time to settle inside the skin, it may appear slightly unnatural for up to two weeks. After the fillers settle, the increased volume will appear to be more natural.
Q. How long does the effect last?
A. The effects typically last between 6 months to 1 year, with each brand lasting for different durations.
Q. What are the common side effects?
A. Minor bruising and swelling could appear on the injection area. Swelling disappears after 3-4 days and bruises disappear within a week. Areas that have experience more movement (eg. nose tips, frown lines and nasolabial lines) are known to be more prone to inflammation.
Q. How painful is it?
A. There is slight discomfort when the syringe needles come into contact with the skin. Also, some people experience varying degrees of stiffness when fillers are injected inside the skin.
Q. Can you get treated simultaneously with other treatments?
A. IIf you had plastic surgery for certain area, you could be advised against filler treatment for that specific area. For instance, patients who have gone through rhinoplasty cannot go through nose filler injections. Otherwise, fillers are mostly compatible with other treatments.
