Where is the best place to get filler?

It’s always beneficial to do some extra research before signing up for a cosmetic procedure, and dermal fillers are no exception. As a reputable clinic with accredited skin care practitioners, we would like to share some key points to consider before committing to this treatment:

Why do you want dermal fillers?

Having a good think about this beforehand will help you make an informed decision. It is worth jotting down the reasons that you want dermal fillers and whether there are any external factors influencing your decision.

Cosmetic procedures should be for you, and you only! So make sure it’s for your own happiness and confidence.

Check you’re dealing with a professional

The cosmetic industry is known for having many ‘specialists’ who aren’t medically qualified. Don’t let this scare you — just take care to find out about the person who will be performing your treatment.

Never hesitate to ask to see any relevant medical certificates during a consultation — any professional will be more than happy to show them to you.

If someone is a registered nurse or doctor, they will be recorded under their governing body e.g. the Royal College of Nursing or on the General Medical Council register.

Do you know what to expect during the treatment and afterwards?

It is worth checking with your practitioner as to whether an anaesthetic cream will be used to slightly numb the area prior to treatment.

You may experience mild swelling, discomfort, or redness after the treatment but these usually settle within a few days. By not wearing makeup, and avoiding sun exposure and alcohol, you will help limit possible side effects.

Ultimately, your decision as to whether to have lip or face fillers shouldn’t be rushed. I provide free consultations regarding a range of aesthetics treatments so don’t hesitate to contact us to find out more.
