Fillers are a cosmetic treatment used to add volume, smooth out wrinkles, and improve the overall appearance of the skin. The procedure involves injecting a substance, such as hyaluronic acid or collagen, into the targeted area.
The first step in the filler procedure is a consultation with a qualified medical practitioner. During the consultation, the practitioner will examine the area to be treated and discuss the patient’s goals and expectations for the procedure. They will also review the patient’s medical history and assess their suitability for the treatment. The procedure typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. After the treatment, the patient may experience some minor swelling, redness, and bruising, but this should subside within a few days. Patients areadvised to avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for 24-48 hours after the procedure. The results of the filler treatment are typically visible immediately, and patients can expect to enjoy the benefits of the treatment for several months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and the individuals metabolism. To maintain the results, patients may need to schedule additional treatments in the future.
