How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Results are instant however there is generally some settling that will occur over the next two weeks. So you'll see some results right away and your final results will be visible after 2 weeks.
How Long Do Results Last?
In general, cheek injections can last 1-2 years however, there are various factors that can affect how long results appear to last for such as the product used, the amount used, your own physiology and and what you consider to be an ideal lasting result. For example, even though the results may still be visible after 1 year it may not be as pronounced as you would like at this point and would require another treatment.
Is It Painful?
You may have some slight swelling and minor discomfort for up to 2 weeks. Severe swelling is fairly uncommon but there are "anti-swelling" medications that can help with this. You can also take Tylenol to help with the discomfort or minor pains.
Is There Any Downtime?
There isn't any downtime required after the treatment however, it's highly recommended that you avoid strenuous activity such as working out for 24 hours. Excess strain may cause your injections to leak out at the injection site until the injection hole has fully healed shut.
What Are Common Side-Effects?
The most common side effects are slight soreness, redness and bruising at the injection site. Other side effects such as swelling can occur - major swelling typically lasts less than 4 days and minor residual swelling can last 2-3 weeks. There are additional side effects that can come up with facial injections - be sure to come in for a free consultation where we can explain all of these to you.
