Results can be seen immediately. Please note that there will be initial swelling, so we recommend that you schedule your injections at least 2 weeks beforehand if you have an event where you need to look your best.
Does it hurt?
We use a prescription strength numbing cream that will be applied to the areas to be injected. This numbing cream is fast acting and will ease any discomfort that you will feel during the procedure.
How can I prevent bruising?
When you call to make your initial dermal filler appointment, please ask us about inexpensive homeopathic supplements that can help minimize bruising and swelling. These supplements can be purchased at any drug, health, or grocery store and must be taken at least 3 days before your injections to be effective.
