SHE Filler FAQ’s
- Which areas can be treated with filler?
Nasolabial folds (smile lines), Vertical lip lines ( smokers wrinkles), Marionette Lines (Jowls), Lips, Tear Troughs (Eye bags), Cheek, Jawline, Chin and Nose.
- What is filler?
Filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid. A water loving molecule that binds up to 400 x its weight in water. It works like a sponge and fills up with water upon injection filling out fine lines/wrinkles and plumping lips. Young skin is moisturized with this hyaluronic acid and naturally occurring sugar. It keeps our skin hydrated via absorption of the water. As we age, this volume of hyaluronic acid decreases and fine lines begin to appear that will eventually turn into wrinkles. In the lips, this causes thinning, loss of fullness, volume and definition. We can also develop vertical or marionette lines around the mouth that cause your mouth to droop, giving you an unhappy appearance. Nasolabial folds can also become deeper due to age-ing along with other factors such as sun exposure, lifestyle, muscle imbalances and so on.
- Will it hurt?
A pre numb will be used for 10 minutes prior to the procedure to help minimise any initial discomfort. The injection itself also contains lidocaine (numb) within the product to ease pain of injection.
- Will there be any swelling post treatment?
You may experience redness, bruising or swelling in the injected area. These effects should not last longer than 2 weeks. Light makeup can be applied 6 hours after procedure.
- What is the longevity of filler?
Every individual is different. What may give an immediate result on one client may take two or three sessions to achieve on another. Likewise, what may last 1 year on one client may last less than 12 weeks on another. This is due to several factors including lifestyle, skin type, etabolism etc. Filler does however take time to build up, regardless of how natural you want it. Please be patient and expect to visit frequently for top ups over the first year to build a base.
This will help ensure your treatment area lasts longer and once that base is in place – should need less maintenance in the future.
- I need to cancel my booking, will I lose my deposit?
Yes – all booking deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
- I’m not able to attend my appointment, can I reschedule?
If you wish to change the date of your booking we require a minimum of 5 days notice.
- How old do you have to be for treatments?
All clients must be 18 at the time of the treatment. Anyone that looks under the age of 25 will be asked for ID.
- Can I bring my children?
Unfortunately due to the nature of the business we are not insured to allow children on the premises. If you arrive with children you will be asked to leave and therefore forfeit your deposit. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience.
- Can I fly after having filler treatment?
We advise all clients to wait a minimum of 48hrs before flying. It is very rare for complications to occur however in theses circumstances you would need to return to the clinic for an emergency reversal protocol.
