Treatment FAQ's

All the Dermal Fillers used are bought by registered Pharmacies. These Products are Hyaluronic Acid-based.

 

Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide that is naturally produced by your body and already found in your skin. Fillers are a sterile gel that consists of stabilised hyaluronic acid. Many Dermal fillers also incorporate a local anesthetic which has an internal numbing effect during the procedure.

Hyaluronic acid injectables are soft tissue fillers that are injected into the skin at different depths to help restore volume and augment facial features. The products are temporary and are eventually absorbed by the body. HA products generally last between 6-8 months however this is individual-based and varies among clients. 

Side effects & Precautions  

Dermal Filler augmentations are a non-surgical implementation of a medical device, as a result of this, there are a number of mild, moderate, and severe side effects that you MUST be aware of prior to your procedure. 

 

Very rare side effects are uncommon but not unheard of. Mary is a highly trained practitioner and will counsel you throughout the procedure process but please be aware this is not your everyday beauty treatment 

 

Firstly, there are limitations to what dermal filler can achieve, no two results are the same and perfect symmetry is not guaranteed.

Mary will Advise you on what she feels is the appropriate volume of filler for you to have, however she can not make the choice for you. 

Please have an idea of what you want to achieve with the filler.

Mary will provide you with numbing cream. HOWEVER, if you are nervous we do advise that you purchase a brand of your choice (we advise EMLA) from any chemist or pharmacy and apply for up to 30 minutes beforehand as within the clinic you will have around 5-10 minutes with cream on.

Migration is where filler has left the vascular field of the lip and resides above or below the lip line. Dermal filler is dissolved using hyalurondaise.
