Although fillers are unlike Botox ®, they are not a prescription medicine and can be extremely dangerous in the wrong hands or if not administered by a medical professional. One of the main dangers is causing blood vessel obstructions. We advise that you research your dermal filler clinic and make sure they have the level of skill and expertise that is required to carry out your treatment and always remember safety before beauty.
Are HA Dermal fillers permanent?
Hyaluronic acid will be gradually destroyed by body own enzymes so they are not permanent but can last over a year in certain types and areas.
Can HA Fillers be dissolved?
Yes, we can use the similar enzyme to the one the body uses to destroy the filler at a higher concentration to destroy the HA. This is rarely used because we as an expert dermal fillers clinic we need to make sure that dermal fillers is the right treatment for you.
How long does it take to see the effects?
About 80% of the effect is immediate taking in to consideration some swelling that will improve over the next couple of days.
HA filler will start to be absorbed water gradually and increase it volume by about 10% so that is why it is important to hydrate on the day of treatment.
Are dermal filler injections painful?
The procedure can be uncomfortable and it can be painful, bur rest assured we will be using enough numbing product and allowing the right time to work before we do any injection. In addition, most of the current fillers on the market have local anaesthetics mixed in with the syringe. Sometimes we use cannula as this will make the procedure safer and less painful.

The pre-treatment care is aimed at reducing the bruising and swelling as both are common side effects. The following should be observed:
