DERMAL FILLERS – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 18 January 2020
Are dermal fillers safe?
Every client seeking injectable treatments with dermal fillers should be offered an in-depth consultation to examine motivation and expectations.
Do dermal fillers hurt?
Unlike procedures such as surgical face lifts or implants, dermal fillers require no cuts, incisions or stitches to be made, although the procedure may involve some light pain or discomfort. Depending on the area being treated, the treatment usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes, and clients describe it as a tiny scratch as the needle goes in, with a slight stinging sensation as the filler is applied. For those feeling anxious, we can use a local anaesthetic to numb the area completely.
Do you offer permanent dermal fillers?
Dr. Vigo does not offer permanent fillers, due to the unknown long-term risks involved.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Each treatment is delivered by Dr. Vigo to achieve the optimum, natural looking results. Results begin to show immediately after treatment and can last up to 12 months, depending on the product used and the area treated. Lip fillers tend to last for six months.
What Happens At The Consultation?
It’s important to us that you achieve the results you want, and we believe this starts with a thorough consultation. You will never be rushed and Dr. Vigo will take the time to discuss aspects of your skin you may be unhappy with, your desired results, costs and timings. His aim is for you to leave your consultation feeling confident, fully informed and looking forward to your treatment.
What if I don’t like the results?
During your consultation a great amount of time will be spent discussing your expectations, so there shouldn’t be any surprise or shock results following treatment. However, if you are not happy with the results, Dr. Vigo can administer a solution that dissolves the filler almost instantly, leaving no lasting damage or effect.
