Risks and side effects of Dermal fillers
Swelling in the injection region
Asymmetry. One side may have a better outcome than the other. This is often due to the fact that faces have a great degree of asymmetry and people often tend to focus more on their face after treatment where these asymmetries become more obvious to the individuals. With many patients, one side of the face tends to be healthier and respond better to treatment providing more structural support and better outcome.
Infection; rare but is always a possibility when there is any opening of the skin
Necrosis (cells death due to obstruction of a blood vessel): Rare complication. This may potentially lead to worse outcomes.
Blindness is an extremely rare outcome.
A neurotoxin is injected into the targeted areas across the forehead which leads to weakening and shrinkage of the Frontalis muscle, which is the muscle responsible for horizontal wrinkle lines.
Fillers are strategically placed in the mid portion of the face, where the insertion points are going to be based on the individual and the desired outcome. This is achieved by inserting the filler (a gel like substances which strengthens over the next few weeks) in the area of the mid face which helps enlarge, define and contour the cheeks.
HA fillers are dissolvable which means you can always reverse their effect if you ever change your mind.
Generally 3 to 6 months. Approximately just over 60% of patient will retain neurotoxin effects at the 4 months mark post treatment. Depending on genetics and lifestyle, some patients only retain effects for up to 8 weeks (those who are extremely physically active tends to metabolize the product faster and have shorter lasting results)
There are many factors contributing to the quantity of neurotoxin required. There are different types of neurotoxins readily available and the quantity will vary according to the product, as they have differing strengths per unit.
Patient history regarding previous treatments and outcome results are generally a good indicator and we encourage our patients to note which product they have previously used and how many units were used.
Other factors include, previous history of complications, current budget, and desired amount of facial expressions to be reserved.
The consultation fee is redeemable against the cost of any treatments performed during the appointment.
Most practitioners and patients prefer to have some form of pain relief. There are multiple options available for your convenience;
After treatment Some bruising, redness and swelling maybe present and self resolve over the next few days. Generally the swelling tends to provide a slightly enhanced effect due to the increased volume associated with this, which tends to disappear eventuate into a more natural appearance. Some patients tend to enjoy the swelling effect, however others may prefer the more natural effect.
