Discomfort from the injections is really neglible and has now been lessened by the use of preserved saline in the administered mixture. The preservation contains Benzyl alcohol which prevents the sting.
At Transform Clinic, we pride ourselves in providing the best expertise and strive to provide the safest, most effective service. Dermal fillers are administered by either our expert Appearance Medicine Registered Nurses or Doctor. Consultations with our Registered Nurses are free. In your consultation, we can analyse how we can help you achieve your desired results. It is also important for us to ensure you have realistic expectations and answer any questions you may have.
Depending on the product, the fillers may last from 6-24 months. Duration also depends on other factors such as the type of treatment, skin condition, lifestyle and age.
There is a slight sting, however, we can offer some different numbing options such as local anaesthetic for the upper lip (about a ¼ compared to the dentist so it wears off a lot quicker in comparison), anaesthetic numbing cream and ice.
Post-treatment there may be some redness and swelling. These will start to go down after the treatment, but may take a few days to fully subside. Bruising is always a risk, ask your practitioner how to minimise the risks. Cannulas can be used to place deeper fillers without the risk of puncturing blood vessels.
Every face is unique and so we must treat each person uniquely for the best possible results. Different amounts of product and different products are required for each person, and so price will always vary. In your initial consultation, we evaluate what is needed to achieve your desired results and can then give you a more specific quote.
Yes, best results can be assessed after 3 or 4 days and sometimes optimal results are only achieved with repeat treatments.
We offer a variety of products to suit different skin types, areas being treated and the desired outcomes. Some of the products we offer include: Belotero, Restylane, Emervel, Sculptra, Juvederm and Teosyal.
