Is there any downtime?
These procedures have limited downtime and the patient can immediately continue as normal, however we strongly suggest avoid touching the area and applying make up for at least 4 hours.
When will I see the results?
One of the most compelling benefits of dermal fillers is how quickly they settle and show you your result. This is in contrast to invasive medical procedures where you will be waiting between 6 and 12 months to see the final result.
What is involved?
You will be consulted and treated by Wendy Dudley. Wendy will advise you about what is possible in terms of treatment and answer any questions you may have.
You will be asked to fill in a short medical history and both the benefits and possible side-effects of treatment will be discussed. You will be asked to sign a consent form and will be photographed prior to being injected. The photographs will be kept in your medical records for future reference and will not be used in promotional or advertorial material without your express consent.
Will it hurt?
Treatments are carried out in a clinical environment. You will be asked to lie down comfortably whilst you are treated. The needles are extremely fine so discomfort is kept to a minimum. The injections are relatively quick too, so if you do feel them they are soon over with. Wendy also has a number of options inlcuding her famous Freeze Stick for numbing the face prior to injections.
How long will it last?
With most Dermal Fillers after 8-15 months, the biocompatible compound is naturally absorbed into the body. This will vary from patient to patient and Wendy can advise you on the result you can expect.
