Your doctor will discuss your medical history and any medications you are taking with you, as well as what you expect from the treatment. If you have a history of severe allergic reactions, are taking anti-coagulant drugs, are on immunosuppressive treatments or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should discuss alternative treatments with your doctor.
During the procedure, the face is cleansed and the sites for injection are marked. The process usually takes less than an hour and there is typically little if any down time. There is no allergy pre-test required because Esthelis is made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the human body.
For 24-48 hours after the injections, you may experience common side effects such as redness, swelling, itching, discomfort and discolouration. These symptoms may last for a week if you received lip injections.
It’s recommended that you avoid over-exposure to the sun, ultraviolet rays and massaging the injected area immediately following the injections.
