Every face is unique and every treatment is tailored to the individual. Whilst the below will be a great help to answer some of the more generic questions, the best way to have YOUR questions answered is to come in for a face to face complimentary consultation.
For anti-wrinkle injections, it does vary between individuals but an approximate timeframe is 3-5 months. Exercise and stress can have an impact on longevity.
For dermal fillers, it will depend on which type of filler is used and where on the face it is placed. Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6-18months, sometimes shorter or longer patient dependent.

We use the smallest needles possible and most people describe it as a small pin prick. More importantly it only takes seconds to complete an anti-wrinkle treatment for a specified area and when treating with dermal filler we can use a very effective numbing cream to help with making it as comfortable as possible. Plus all the dermal fillers used at SCinjectables have lidocaine in the syringe to help further with the numbing.
For anti-wrinkle injections, the recovery time is minutes. For most people they will get a little swelling where the injections were placed that look similar to mosquito bites, and this swelling usually disappears within 10-15 minutes. It is truly the lunch time treatment!
For dermal fillers, we advise patients to expect bruising and swelling, and if this happens the swelling will last for 2-3 days and with bruising it can take up to a week depending on the size of the bruise. However bruising does not happen every single time. Factors which contribute to whether you bruise are:
- injector technique and experience
- whether you have had blood thinners in the past week (ibuprofen, fish oil, aspirin, alcohol etc.)
- facial anatomy
For anti-wrinkle injections, it will take approx. 2-4 days to start working but up to 2 weeks for a full effect.
For dermal fillers, it will work immediately, but will take 2-4 weeks for the filler to completely settle and integrate with tissues beneath the skin.
