What Is The Dermal Filler Treatment Like?

An anaesthetic cream is applied to the area prior to the treatment so that any discomfort is minimal. For lip treatments, an anaesthetic infiltration is given which is similar to a dental injection. The filler is then injected with a very fine needle under the skin surface.

After the treatment the area may be slightly red and swollen. This is particularly so with the lips. However, you can resume normal activities and drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment. Vigorous exercise should be avoided for 24 hours.
