DLK’s filler treatment is a safe and effective solution for people who are concerned with volume loss in the cheeks, cheekbones and around the chin.
This injectible hyaluronic volumiser re-contours the face to restore volume to chin, cheeks, and cheekbones that have become hollow or thin due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss. Immediately after the treatment, facial contours appear fuller and rounder giving the face a softer, more youthful appearance. Depending on the course of treatment chosen, patients will enjoy fuller cheeks, firmer, higher cheekbones, and a marked return of the smooth jowls and jawline and a firmer chin with lasting results. The lifting effects of the treatment have been shown to last up to 18 months.
DLK’s Injectable Treatment procedure takes place in a medically supervised clinic after a consultation. A customized treatment program will be developed and each patient’s individual concerns and goals will be met.
The area to be treated will be cleaned and the actual treatment takes from 20 to 30 minutes. A hyaluronic acid filler will be injected into the treatment site (e.g. cheeks, cheekbones, and/or chin) with a small needle. After the injection, your face will be massaged at the treatment sites to make sure the product is properly distributed and the results are even. Only experienced physicians or Registered Nurses who have had specific training on using facial volumising products and in using this particular injection technique are authorised to perform this treatment. Before you leave, ice may be applied to your treatment sites for at least 10 minutes to help minimize swelling, inflammation, and bruising.
It is recommended to discontinue aspirin, aspirin-like products, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, St. John’s Wort, high doses of Vitamin E, and alcohol for a few days before your treatment to minimize bruising and swelling.
Treated areas may be slightly swollen and red following the procedure, but these effects generally disappear within a few hours to a day. It is recommended that the patient return two weeks after treatment for a follow-up appointment to ensure that the results are optimal.
It is important that the amount of movement or sleeping on the area injected be minimized for the next 48-72 hours (e.g. minimize smoking and/or drinking from a straw, sleep on your back). Treated areas might feel numb, swollen, firm, or sore for a few days and may appear bruised.
Injectable fillers results are typically immediate and often a single treatment session will achieve the desired improvement in the area of concern. No injectable is 100% permanent and all will require repeat injections to maintain the desired effect.
