How is it administered?
Through a very thin needle directly on to your skin. It only takes about 30 minutes since no skin testing is needed and the results are immediately visible.
Will it hurt?
It depends upon your pain tolerance level. The injections may sting a little because anesthesia is not necessary for this procedure. We can use a topical anesthesia for your comfort. For lip injection treatments, we can use a nerve block to reduce your discomfort or anxiety.
How long does it last?
It really depends upon the structure of your skin, your lifestyle and your age. Around 50-80% of our patients have said that the effects remained after 6 months.
Is it safe? Are there any side effects?
Prior to treatment, you will be carefully evaluated by our Physician. This procedure has been proven safe and effective. Research has shown there to be about 1 in 2,000 people who have experienced any redness, swelling, or tenderness near the treatment site up to several weeks after the procedure.
