Treatments can be used in conjunction with fillers to relax the facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles and furrows. Precise treatment of fillers creates a more youthful contour and appearance. Subtle lip or cheek contouring can produce amazing results and beautifully enhance your facial features. Depending on the number of injection sites and the injectables used treatment can take as little as 30 minutes.
What to expect after the procedure
Injectable fillers are usually visible instantly, however depending on the product used and goal some treatments may take 2-3 sessions to achieve the final result. Also dependent upon the product used top up sessions may or may not be required. Some of the initial plumping you may experience will be due to swelling. It is common when there is multiple injection sites that you may experience some swelling and bruising in the first few days post treatment. In non-smokers bruising is rare. To minimise swelling, patients are advised to continue icing the sites and are advised not to exercise or consume alcohol immediately after treatment. Patients should avoid smoking, aspirin, vitamin E, anti-inflammatories, herbal supplements and other medications that promote bruising. Arnica cream is encouraged post operatively. If you are considering facial filler treatment please feel free to contact our clinic for pre-treatment tips to reduce the possibility of bruising.
In order to fine tune the results additional follow-up treatments may be necessary. Working in conjunction with the patient Dr Mooney prefers to give his patients a more natural look when using fillers and then build upon the treatments as the patient adjusts to their new look and provides their feedback and direction.
