After the treatment
The results with dermal fillers are instant. Afterwards the treated area may be slightly red and/or slightly swollen; however you can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Although uncommon, possible adverse effects may include:
Injection-related reactions, which may include swelling, redness and discomfort, itching and bruising. Such reactions are typically mild and resolve within a few hours.
The risk of an allergic reaction is extremely rare as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body. Allergic reactions can however be treated with oral or injectable corticosteroids or the product removed using an injectable enzyme (hyaluronidase).
As with all injections, this procedure carries a risk of infection. The syringe is sterile and standard precautions associated with injectable materials are always taken.
Frequently asked questions
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. It binds water and can act as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin.
How do dermal fillers work?
By boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look. Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel consisting of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid. The gel is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. It is long-lasting but not permanent.
What are the benefits of dermal filler?
Dermal filler injections provide an easy way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth the skin and give a more youthful appearance.

How long does a dermal filler treatment last?
One of the great advantages of dermal filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the treatment.
Are there any risks with dermal fillers?
There are some injection related reactions which may occur after any injection; they typically resolve spontaneously a few days after injection to the skin.

After lip enhancement, lips may swell for up to a week, but this typically reduces after two to three days.
