Non Surgical Face Treatments

What to expect

Here's what you can typically expect:

Discussion of Goals: The practitioner will discuss your specific concerns and what you hope to achieve with the treatment. This could include reducing wrinkles, adding volume, or enhancing certain facial features.

Medical History: You'll likely be asked about your medical history, including any allergies, medications you're currently taking, and previous cosmetic procedures. This is crucial for ensuring your safety during the treatment.

Examination: The practitioner will examine the areas you want to address, assessing factors like skin texture, volume loss, and muscle activity. This helps in determining the most suitable treatment plan for you.

Explanation of Procedures: The practitioner will explain the procedures, including the types of products used, potential side effects, and the expected results. For anti-wrinkle injections, this may involve temporarily relaxing specific facial muscles, while fillers involve adding volume to specific areas.

Cost and Maintenance: The cost of the treatment and any necessary follow-up sessions will be discussed. They may also advise you on maintenance treatments to prolong the effects.


Avoid Touching: Refrain from touching or rubbing the treated areas to minimize the risk of infection.

Ice Packs: Applying ice packs can help reduce swelling and ease any discomfort. Use a cloth to wrap the ice pack to avoid direct contact with the skin.

Avoid Strenuous Activities: Steer clear of vigorous exercises and strenuous activities for the first 24 hours to prevent the spread of the injected substance.

Stay Upright: If you've had facial fillers, try to keep an upright position for a few hours after the procedure. This helps to minimize swelling.

No Makeup or Sun Exposure: Avoid applying makeup to the treated areas for at least 24 hours. Additionally, stay away from direct sunlight to prevent irritation.

Follow-up Appointment: Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and discuss any concerns with your healthcare professional.

Remember, these are general guidelines, and it's crucial to follow the specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider based on your individual case.

Informed consent

Key components of informed consent typically include:

Disclosure of Information: The healthcare provider should provide clear and comprehensive information about the procedure, including its purpose, potential risks, benefits, and available alternatives.

Understanding: The patient should have the capacity to understand the information provided. This often involves ensuring the patient is of sound mind, not under the influence of substances, and capable of making decisions.

Voluntariness: The decision to give consent should be voluntary, without coercion or pressure from the healthcare provider.

Documentation: Informed consent is usually documented through a signed consent form. This form acknowledges that the patient has received and understood the necessary information and has agreed to proceed with the treatment.
Confidentiality and Privacy: The informed consent process also includes a discussion about patient confidentiality and privacy rights.

You should have ample time to ask questions and seek clarification during this discussion. Once you feel well-informed and have no further queries, you may provide your consent for the IUD insertion procedure.

How long do the effects of cosmetic injections and fillers last?

The duration of the effects of cosmetic injections and fillers varies depending on the type of treatment. Here are approximate durations for common cosmetic procedures:

  1. Botox (Botulinum Toxin): Typically lasts 3 to 6 months. Repeat treatments are necessary to maintain the desired results.
  2. Dermal Fillers (Hyaluronic Acid): The effects can last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the specific filler used and the area treated.
  3. Collagen Stimulators (e.g., Sculptra): Results may last up to 2 years or more. Multiple sessions are often required for optimal outcomes.
  4. Neuromodulators (e.g., Dysport): Similar to Botox, the effects usually last 3 to 6 months, requiring periodic re-treatment.

It’s essential to note that individual factors such as metabolism, lifestyle, and the type of filler used can influence the longevity of results. Regular maintenance treatments are often recommended to sustain the cosmetic improvements.

Are cosmetic injections painful?

The level of pain experienced during cosmetic injections can vary from person to person, and it often depends on individual pain tolerance. However, most people report minimal discomfort during these procedures.

Practitioners often use very fine needles, and some cosmetic injections and fillers contain a local anesthetic to enhance comfort. Additionally, the process is generally quick, contributing to reduced discomfort.

If you have concerns about pain or discomfort, it’s advisable to discuss them with your practitioner beforehand. They can provide information on the specific techniques used to minimise any potential discomfort during the procedure.

What are the potential side effects of fillers?

Potential side effects of fillers are generally mild and temporary, but they can include:

  1. Swelling: Some swelling is common after filler injections, especially in the first 24-48 hours.
  2. Redness and Bruising: Temporary redness and bruising at the injection site may occur but usually resolve within a few days.
  3. Tenderness or Pain: Mild tenderness or pain at the injection site is possible but typically short-lived.
  4. Lumps or Bumps: Occasionally, small lumps or bumps may develop. Massage or adjustments by the practitioner can often resolve these.
  5. Itching or Discoloration: Temporary itching or skin discoloration might occur, but these side effects are generally temporary.
  6. Allergic Reactions: Though rare, some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to the filler substance. It’s crucial to inform the practitioner of any known allergies before the procedure.
  7. Infection: While uncommon, there is a risk of infection at the injection site. Practitioners take sterile measures to minimise this risk.
  8. Migration of Filler: In rare cases, filler material might move from the intended area. Proper injection technique minimises this risk.

How soon can I see results after getting cosmetic injections?

The time it takes to see results after cosmetic injections can vary depending on the type of treatment. Here are general timelines for common procedures:

  1. Botox (Botulinum Toxin): Results often start becoming noticeable within 3 to 7 days, with full effects usually visible after about two weeks.
  2. Dermal Fillers (Hyaluronic Acid): Results are typically immediate, and you can see the changes right after the injections. However, there might be some initial swelling that can affect the immediate appearance.
  3. Collagen Stimulators (e.g., Sculptra): Results may take a few weeks to become apparent as these treatments stimulate collagen production over time.
  4. Neuromodulators (e.g., Dysport): Similar to Botox, you may start noticing the effects within a few days, with the full outcome visible after about two weeks.

It’s essential to follow any post-treatment care instructions provided by your practitioner and allow some time for any initial swelling or bruising to subside before fully appreciating the final results. Individual responses can vary, so discuss specific timelines with your practitioner during the consultation.
