Dermal Filler Belfast, Dublin & Galway
Dr. Mark Hamilton has been injecting FDA approved HA Dermal Fillers in his Belfast, Dublin and Galway clinics for almost 20 years.
He performs Cheek Augmentation and treats Naso -Labial Lines + Marionette Lines using the HA filler Restylane LYFT® or Juvederm ULTRA® by Allergan which both contain lidocaine (a local anaesthetic).
Restylane Lyft® HA Dermal Filler has a large particle size— this thicker filler is excellent for re-building and lifting sagging cheeks.
Juvederm ULTRA® HA Dermal Fillers have a smaller particle size and work better for treating fine lines and plumping lips.
IS THERE BRUISING OR DOWNTIME ?
Arnica cream is applied to the injection areas immediately after treatment. Dr. Mark would recommend you continue to apply Arnica cream for 2-3 days post injection as there may be slight bruising. Downtime is 24-48 hours.
If you are prone to bruising easily, best not to have cosmetic dermal fillers treatments within 10 days of an important social event. If you get a bruise, it can last 7 to 10 days. Routinely, most patients are usually fine and only experience slight swelling for 24 hours.
Avoid long haul flights for 5-7 days post treatment as the altitude of the flight and cabin pressure might affect the settling of the filler and may increase bruising.
The Difference between Anti Wrinkle Injections and Fillers
Anti Wrinkle Injections act by freezing your muscles and stops them from creasing the skin into wrinkles when you frown, laugh or smile. Results take 2 weeks to reach its maximum effect. You will need to have these treatments every 4-6 months. There is no down time for recovery.
HA Dermal Fillers act by filling in the lines on your face. Results are immediate and will continue to improve over 5 days after treatment. One treatment can make skin look plumper and smoother for several months, and maybe longer. You will need to have these treatments every 9-12 months. Downtime for recovery is a few days as you may bruise.
