This treatment is very customized and exact, aimed at keeping you looking like yourself, just refreshed. Dermal fillers are expertly placed into the cheeks and surrounding areas, into the lines and corners around the mouth, the “marionette lines” around the chin, and lips. In total, you can expect the procedure time to take about two hours. After the treatments, you can expect some swelling, and bruising is possible. No downtime is required, but this procedure is more extensive than a quick lunch break filler appointment.
You can reduce these effects by taking certain precautions, but you should always be prepared for them. You will see improvements immediately, but full results will not be seen for at least two weeks, so be sure to schedule your appointment accordingly. Filler can be expected to last nine months to two years, depending on the product used. Botox or similar product treatments should be repeated three to four times a year to maintain results and prevent deeper lines from forming.
