This can vary from person to person, but results can last for up to 18 months. This will also depend on the type of product that is used, which varies depending on your requirements. For example, we may not use the same product to reduce frown lines as the product we use for lip filler treatments.
Most of the products we use contain hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally within the body. Some products contain collagen stimulants, most of which also occur naturally in the body. As a result, the chances of a significant allergic reaction are slim, however, some redness and swelling may occur.
