FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid of different densities which are injected into the skin to help replace volume, improve skin hydration and reduce signs of aging. Skin boosters contain high molecular weight HA which has a hydrating effect but not a filling effect.
HOW LONG DO SKIN BOOSTERS LAST?
Initial treatment requires a course of 3 procedures 3-4 weeks apart. After this maintence treatment is advised every 6 months. Longevity of your treatment varies vastly between patients so please note this is not a guarantee however combining skin boosters with medical grade skincare can give the best, long lasting results. Other factors which may reduce how long your fillers last include active exercise regimes, increased sun exposure, heat therapies like sauna/steam, smoking, your metabolism and past medical history.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
As with any medical treatment there is a possibility of side effects, although most of these are very rare. HA is found natural in the body and so the risk of reaction is low.
As a needle is used you may experience bruising, bleeding, pain and swelling in the area treated. At times you may not be happy with the outcome of your treatment due to the formation of lumps or little improvement is noticed, in this case always contact us for a review. Other more serious side effects may occur, but as doctors we are highly trained to recognise these and act quickly. These include infection and allergic reaction. They will always be discussed at length in your appointments and Dr Diane is always available to support you if you are concerned after your procedure.
We understand this all sounds scary but please note these are rare. We work in a safe, clean environment with access to all emergency medicines.

We would advise you to book a consultation if you have any worries or wish to know more.

Avoid touching the skin and applying make up for at least 4 hours to reduce the risk of infection
Avoid vigorous exercise for 24 hours after
