Approaching treatment

You’ve listened to all the facts and decided that facial fillers are right for you. What next? You should by now feel pretty comfortable about your upcoming treatment. But here is a quick recap of what your treatment day might look like.

Treatment day

Depending on your individual treatment plan, the appointment can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Your physician will start by reviewing your treatment plan and giving you the ins and outs of what to expect that day. They will go over the number of injection points to show you how they will achieve the results you are after.

When you are ready, they will first sanitise your treatment areas to prepare them for the injections. If using Juvéderm® facial fillers there will be minimal pain and swelling of the treatment areas.  Juvéderm® facial fillers with Lidocaine have a built in anaesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable and relatively pain-free.

Each injection is short, lasting a few seconds, and the amount of Juvéderm® used will be dependent on your main treatment objective. The treatment technique will also vary depending on what you are looking to achieve.

 

For example, they may be injecting an area of your face that isn’t necessarily your area of concern, because the effect it will create will give you the results you want.

After each injection, your physician will massage the area to ensure that the filler Juvéderm® is placed properly and smoothed into your skin. You will be able to see your results immediately after the procedure. There may be some minimal swelling and redness at the injection points, which is normal and will subside soon after you leave your practitioner’s office.

Your physician may want to schedule a follow-up appointment in a couple of weeks, just to check in and make sure you are happy with the results. It’s a great opportunity to make sure you are completely satisfied with your treatment, or if you want a small touch-up to get the results you are after.
