#5: Dermal Fillers – Aftercare Advice
Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm are used to soften wrinkles and other facial lines. Aurora’s nurse specialist Libby Stewart explains what to expect following treatment and advises on the best way to achieve the best result for you.
Hello this is Libby Stewart the Nurse Practitioner here at Aurora Clinics. What will happen following your treatment with dermal fillers? Well immediately following your treatment we will take some more pictures so that we can see the immediate result. As I explained on the previous video about how we take photographs as a baseline when you come to see us and you will be able to see the improvement in your static lines immediately following treatment.
Now, sometimes depending on how much of the product we have used, and the product is actually delivered by a syringe like this one here, so sometimes it takes more than one syringe to actually achieve the perfect correction so we may use more than one syringe in the one treatment or you might be invited to come back at a later date just to layer another syringe on top so we have the perfect correction for you. There’s nothing much to do following your treatment. We do ask you to avoid extreme facial expressions and alcohol and putting on your makeup for up to 12 hours. This gives the product time to settle in place and the not putting on of makeup just really helps to prevent any infection which may be caused due to makeup going into the very, very fine puncture that the needle would have made.
For two weeks following your treatment we would ask you not to have saunas and solariums and to avoid extremes of temperature, again just to give the product the best chance of maintaining that really nice long-lasting correction for you. Treatments will last between six months, nine months, twelve months, depending on the areas that we’ve put them and the grade of product that we’ve used and the actual sort of weight of the product we’ve used to correct the line that you wanted removing or indeed the volume correction and so any time that you’d like to come back to clinic to have a follow on appointment we’d be very happy to see you. You can arrange these on our clinic number of 01844 214 362 or via the website. Thank you.
