Dermal fillers help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance. Material is injected into the skin in areas where it
needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer.
Fillers come in different thicknesses, and in general, the thicker the product, the deeper it is injected into the dermis.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the spaces between the cells of body tissues.
How long will it take to recover from Dermal Fillers?
Depending on the area treated, and which filler is used, treatment times can vary from around 30 minutes to an hour,
and recovery time can be from a few hours to a few days.
However, most people find that they can return straight back to work
after treatment with dermal fillers.
The obvious immediate side effect is of slight bleeding after the needle has been inserted into the skin.
Other risks include mild bruising, redness and swelling that may also occur around the site of injection.
These signs may take 2 - 3 days to vanish completely, especially around the lips where there is little flesh and the skin is tender.
