How long does the dermal filler last?

After having the treatment you will notice a difference instantly. The effects of the dermal filler will last between 6 – 18 months depending on the areas treated, the skin quality and the amount of filler used. General health and lifestyle also affect the longevity of dermal filler.

Which brand of dermal filler do we use?

Enhance use both Restylane® and Juvederm® dermal filler. Both these dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic which is a numbing solution, and this makes treatment more comfortable.

Is dermal filler treatment safe and is it suitable for everyone?

Dermal fillers are very safe as Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, and that means it is very bio-compatible with the body.

There are some groups of people who should not have dermal filler treatment:

  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women.
  • People who get keloid scarring.
  • Some medications make people unsuitable for treatment.

A full medical history will be taken prior to treatment to ensure you are suitable and safe to treat.

Does the treatment hurt?

Treatment is carried out using both cannula and needling techniques. We are trained to cause as little trauma as possible in order to make the treatment comfortable. The dermal fillers that we use contain a local anaesthetic and prior to treatment, we can apply additional local anaesthetic in form of cream or injection.

Will I bruise after having the treatment?

After the treatment, you may experience some swelling, redness or bruising but this should not last long.
