Q & A on Derma Fillers with Nurse Nicola

Q & A on Derma Fillers with Nurse Nicola

Q: What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?

A: Hyaluronic Acid is our own natural moisturiser and is an important substance that makes up the healthy and youthful looking appearance of our skin. Unfortunately, HA diminishes over time, the good news is the signs of ageing can be reduced by replacing the lost HA to hydrate and plump up the tissue in the skin.


Q: How long does the treatment take?

A: Following the detailed consultation with your nurse and when you are happy to proceed, the treatment typically would take about 30min. Your skin is cleaned and sanitised with antiseptic solution and we would take a photo before we start the treatment. During the session, the filler is injected into the specific area using a fine needle or cannula.


Q: Does it hurt?

A: All fillers now come with anaesthetic, which helps to reduce any sensation of pain. Also, modern fillers are designed to integrate into your own skin tissues without disruption to the tissue.


Q: How will the area feel after the treatment?

A: You are unlikely to feel any difference in the area treated, compared to untreated areas. You may experience slight numbness for 30-60mins after the treatment.


Q: How soon can I return to normal activities?

A: You may experience slight swelling or redness after the injections, but this will subside soon after the treatment. You can return to your daily routine immediately.


Q: How long does it last?

A: This will depend on the individual and the area being treated. Most clients come for a follow-up treatment 6-12 months to maintain the appearance.


Q: Are there any side effects?

A: Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of the skin and therefore less likely to cause an allergic reaction. There are however some injection-related reactions, which may occur. These include slight redness, localised swelling, itching and bruising. These reactions are completely normal, generally very mild and usually disappear shortly after your treatment ( 1-2 days).
