REASONS TO UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
FILLERS: RESTYLANE, JUVEDERM, BELOTERO, AND SCULPTRA PROCEDURE
While our facial fillers can be administered on the same day of the consultation, it is advisable to do it on a specified date at least 10 days after the first consultation. This is due to several factors that can directly affect the overall success of the procedure, such as the availability of the chosen filler material or the medications the patient may have taken (some medications can increase the risk of bruising) within the last few days prior to their consultation.
Before proceeding with the treatment, Dr. Sedgh may use ice packs and a topical anesthetic to numb the area and prepare it for injection. In some cases, local anesthesia may be administered beforehand to minimize the pain and discomfort for particularly sensitive areas, such as the lips.
Some fillers, such as Juvederm, contain a mild anesthetic called lidocaine, which should instantly numb the area once injected.
Once the injection sites have been sufficiently numbed, Dr. Sedgh will begin by injecting a controlled amount of filler to the target area. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, this usually involves multiple injections to create natural, well-distributed results. The entire process consists of injecting the filler, massaging the area, and assessing the end result to determine if additional filler is needed.
Filler procedures may take anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour.
Some may experience minimal pain, swelling, and bruising right after procedure, but such effects are easily remedied by following the prescribed aftercare instructions. You should be able to resume your usual activities on the same day of the treatment, but it is important to avoid overly physical or strenuous activities for at least a day or two.
Dr. Sedgh makes it a point to provide his patients with comprehensive aftercare and support to ensure a superlative patient experience. He is highly responsive to calls and emails and will personally monitor your recovery during the first few days post-treatment. He may also schedule additional follow-up appointments for those who would like to maintain their results through regular touchups.
