Are Dermal Fillers Painful and what downtime should I expect?

Dermal filler treatments are generally not painful, although the amount of discomfort you experience may vary depending on the area. Treatments around the lip and nose area are typically the most uncomfortable but this can still be tolerated well though topically applied anaesthetic cream.

There is normally no downtime to consider except for slight mild redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, or itching which usually subsides after a few hours following treatment - most patients can return to work or to their regular activities immediately after receiving treatment although 24hrs following treatment vigorous exercise is discouraged.  If any of these side effects persist, it is recommended to consult your doctor.
