Before the procedure there is a consultative examination on which the patient will be fully informed about the specifics of the procedure. The nature of the patient’s problem will be assessed together with the possible ways of treatment, expected results, behavior after the procedure. A follow-up consultation will also be made in order to track and make an additional correction if needed. In order to achieve the desired result there may be a combination of different fillers plus a laser procedure and a radiofrequency therapy or other types of manipulations that use injections such as Botox, mesotherapy, skinboosters.
This procedure is entirely done by injections and the depth of the injection depends entirely on the treated area, the desired result and the type of filler. Most of the fillers contain a local anesthetic which makes the injections in different areas of the face pain-free. Because of their high sensitivity the lips are treated after applying a topical anesthetic cream. After the procedure patients can go back to their normal daily routine.
The effect is visible immediately after the procedure, the final result, however, is expected around the 14th day of the procedure. Patients are advised to drink more water because the hyaluronic acid binds the water molecules in its composition. After the procedure swelling and red spots may appear in the injected areas but they will subside after 2 or 3 days.
