What is the treatment procedure?
At the initial consult, your treating doctor will examine your face thoroughly and discuss with you the look you want to achieve. Depending on the amount of fat, the number of treatments will be discussed. We recommend 2-4 injections spaced at a few weeks for optimal results. However, some patients may need 6 injections. You will be advised on pre- and post-treatment care instructions.
The procedure takes around 20-30 minutes. You may experience mild to moderate discomfort during the procedure. Your doctor may apply icepacks or topical anaesthetics to ease pain. The treatment is safe and there are very few side-effects. Possible side-effects will be discussed with you at the initial consult.
Once you achieve the desired look, the results usually last for 4 years.
