FAQ

Freqently Asked Questions

We understand that the cosmetic industry can appear daunting to newcomers, for that reason we have compiled a list of the most common questions we get asked in order to help answer any concerns you may have.

Are botox and filler injections painful?

The injections can be uncomfortable in sensitive areas however, numbing cream is applied before injecting and ice can also be used. We use ultra-thin needles similar to accupuncture needles and the injection techniques are developed for minimal discomfort.

Will there be swelling and how long does the swelling last?

The injections into the skin do result in minimal swelling and this is a natural process of the body protecting itself. The swelling can last a few hours and is usually resolved within a few days.

Will there be bruising and how long does the bruising last?

When a needle is inserted into the skin there is always a chance that a blood vessel may be punctured and blood can ooze out and spread under the skin. However, the body puts a “cork” into a punctured vessel and the area of bruise is usually very small. Such bruises usually clear after a few days. Cosmetic injectors practice techniques to avoid such bruises and punctured blood vessels are rare.

Can men be treated?

The results of treating men with anti-wrinkle injections and fillers are just as pleasing as with women.

At what age should one start cosmetic injectables?

People are individual and there is no specific age to start with cosmetic injectables. Young people can use injectables to enhance their beauty and to prevent wrinkles and skin folds from forming. Older people can use injectables to restore lost volumes, reduce wrinkles and skin folds, and enhance sagging features.
