If you are thinking about having some sort of facial aesthetics treatment you might have lots of questions before you start especially if you haven’t had this type of treatment done before. We offer free consultations in Stoke on Trent with Allysun our lovely facial aesthetics practitioner but we also thought we would show you the most frequently asked questions we get to hopefully help make your decision that little bit easier!
Does it hurt?
For Dermal filler treatments on sensitive areas like the lips we use topical cream to numb the area before treatment, and we can also offer dental anaesthetic for the lips and around the mouth which is something that only a dental professional can offer you (shameless plug there!). Clients who have previously had lip treatments elsewhere and found it painful are amazed how painless our treatments are at Diana Dental!
Will I be sore and bruised after?
You might find you experience a little bruising and swelling after the treatment but this really varies from patient to patient and you may find that you don’t get any at all. You shouldn’t need any time off work and any bruising can be covered by make-up from the day after treatment.
Will I look frozen or unnatural?
In a word no! Here at the practice our focus is on a natural, fresher look. I am sure you have all seen celebrities or even people in the street who have that frozen, expressionless look which we feel gives these kind of treatments a negative spin, a full consultation with Allysun will allow you to tell her the look you would like to achieve.
Will my lips look like a “trout pout”?
Lesley Ash’s lips have certainly not done the world of facial aesthetics any favours! We will listen to your concerns and treatment aims and tailor your treatment to you as an individual. You can be reassured on achieving natural, fuller, more defined lips to the degree you desire without looking “trouty”!
How long will it last?
Treatment generally takes around 30 minutes, the results are immediate for dermal fillers and take 5-10 days for anti-wrinkle treatments. Results can last between 3-9 months on average and wear off gradually with a return to your original appearance and no lasting effect once the treatment has worn off.
Will people be able to tell?
This really depends on you! It also depends on the type of treatment and area which has been treated. Usually patients have said that because the result is so natural people usually notice something different but can’t quite figure out what it is- often clients are told they look refreshed like they’ve had a good holiday or a rest! Some clients want that wow factor and a stronger result so that people instantly notice! It’s up to you – you can keep it as your little secret if you so wish!
What will happen if I stop having treatment?
Nothing! The results will wear off gradually and you will return to your normal self without any lasting effects or visible changes. You can then decide if you would like to repeat your treatment or maybe have it just for a special occasion in the future.
How safe is it/ are there any side effects?
As medical professionals we consider all the factors when providing treatments and we believe that these treatments are very safe when administered by qualified insured professionals such as ourselves.
Anti-wrinkle treatments have been used medically for other problems for many years such as excessive sweating and for helping stroke sufferers, and we only use FDA approved products so the risk of complications is very low. Any possible side effects are fully discussed with you prior to treatment and full post-operative care is provided including Allysun’s personal number in case you have any concerns after treatment or want any further advice. We see our clients for a review 2 weeks after every treatment to check the results and take post treatment photographs (you can even have copies of your before and after photos!)
