As one ages, the face loses volume and wrinkles and skin folds appear as a result of smiling and frowning. Fillers work by restoring the volume of part of the face or filling the lip or wrinkle and are gradually digested by the body.
Fillers can be injected during normal consultation. At Amwaj Polyclinic, we tend to apply a cream before for the numbness to reduce the discomfort. Additionally, ice can be applied before and after injection as well. Fillers can be injected in the lips or wrinkles and you can usually return to work the same day. Occasional swelling may occur, especially in the lips. Therefore, if it’s your first-time, you may want to schedule the first injection on a day close to the weekend.
