ANATOMIC SPECIFIC FILLER
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
What are Injectables?
Facial Injectables are dermal filler. Most commonly this is a hyaluronic acid based formulation. Dermal fillers are designed to replace lost tissue volume as a result of ageing and also to enhance aspects of beauty. The approach at Definity Clinic focuses on specific anatomic losses that are specific to each patient. Filler is not simply placed randomly for aesthetic effect. The lessons learned with ITR and compartmentalised fat are applied to address the anatomy of ageing.
Am I a good candidate?
The greatest contributors to ageing apart from time are UV light and smoking. The process of facial ageing involves the skull, the fat pads and the skin. All these factors will effect outcome and must always be individually assessed.
What do I need on the day of the procedure?
There is no specific preparation prior to treatment. Recognise that no treatment is always an option. However if you have had any recent skin or dental infections we need to know.
What does the procedure involve?
The aim of Definity Clinic is always to make the procedure as comfortable and as safe as possible. After a detailed pre-planning discussion and consent process, the area to be treated will be cleansed and landmarks identified. Often it will be necessary to numb the face before proceeding with any injectable treatment. Treatment is delivered both by needle and cannula.
What does the recover process look like?
You can expect to resume all normal activities immediately however there may be some mild swelling and small bruising, to be taken into consideration.
Will I look perfect?
There is no magic potion. Results will vary, however you will be made aware of what to expect ahead of time. It often takes a couple of weeks for the final result to be seen.
