The latest fillers at Jeunesse MedSpa® contain local anesthetic combine with the filler which significantly reduces the pain. The use of the other fillers that do not contain anaesthetic can be made more tolerable with the use of local anaesthetic cream to the treated area or a nerve block prior to injection (like what the dentist does). The dermal filler is then comfortably injected into the treated area to fill out the line, wrinkle or fold.
There is usually some transient redness after the injections. Swelling is also present after the procedure, especially with any lip enhancement procedure, which usually resolves in 24-48 hours.
Bruising can also occur, and if it does, it can take a week to heal. Make-up can be worn soon after treatment should there be a need, using a clean brush.
If you have a history of cold sores and the treatment area is around the mouth, then you should notify your treating doctor. You may be instructed to take anti-viral medications prior to treatment if this is the case.
