What is Hyaloronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is normally produced in our body. It's our skin's natural moisturizer. It can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water to help maintain the smoothness and plumpness of your skin. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are made from complex sugar chains that are biodegradable, completely clear and smooth. The HA gels are designed to resemble your body's own hyaluronic acid.

What can I expect during my appointment.

 Prior to all treatments at Fab Clinic A full medical history will be taken and you will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns and expected outcomes. You will need to complete a consent form prior to your treatment and pre treatment photos will be taken. Dermal Fillers are injected under the skin into the specific area to be treated, using a fine needle or cannula. Fillers are formulated for various indications such as enhancing your lips, cheeks, nose to mouth lines chin and jaw line. Most dermal fillers in New Zealand are supplied in a 1ml sterile syringe. The amount of filler you need will depend on various factors such as the area of treatment and desired result. The treatment takes around 30- 60 minutes to complete. Immediately after the treatment, lines will be smoother and lips, if treated will be fuller. 

Does the treatment hurt?

When injecting into the skin, some people may find the treatment to be mildly uncomfortable. Most Dermal Fillers are now available with Lidocaine to help reduce the sensation of pain. For sensitive areas such as lips, a topical numbing cream and ice may also be used to improve your comfort during the treatment.

How soon can I return to normal activities?

Most people return to their normal activities soon after the treatment, however we do recommend to allow at least 3 weeks prior to big events such as weddings before your treatment. As filler is applied by injection,you may experience some post treatment swelling, tenderness, bruising and redness that can last up to 14 days,but nothing that a little concealer can't hide. 

Risks and side effects

Side effects and complications sometimes occur but are rare. Because Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, they are less likely to cause allergic reactions. There are however some, injection related reactions that can occur including redness, swelling, itching, bruising and pain at the injection site. There is a small risk for infection, but this is rare and usually prevented by using a medical grade skin disinfectant cleanser prior to the treatment.  Cold sores can be triggered in some people who are pre disposed to the virus, but can be prevented by medication. Blindness is an extremely rare complication that is caused by filler being injected  into an artery and travelling to the back of the eye. A single case was reported in NZ and about a 100 cases worldwide out of millions of treatments performed . The risk is estimated to be about 1 in 20 000, this is similar to the risk of blindness with upper eyelid surgery.  At Fab Clinic I take this very serious  and are constantly attending lectures and safe injection courses, education myself on the best and safest techniques to not only minimize the risk but also on how to treat such an emergency, should it happen. All risks involved will be discussed in detail at the time of you consultation.

How long will my result last?

The effect of a Dermal Filler treatment can be long lasting but not permanent. Some products may last from 6 and  up to18months. The duration of your results depends on may factors including the type of filler used, the area that was treated, skin condition, lifestyle and age. After your initial treatment, a follow up visit is usually recommended to maintain your desired result.

Estimated Cost

The cost of a filler treatment varies depending on the product and amount used. To determine exactly what you need I recommended a consultation before any treatment. I will discuss the estimated cost before your treatment.  Fillers used to add volume to cheeks will generally cost more than fillers to treat wrinkles and lips.
