Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQ

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, because it is the body’s own supply of hydration, artificial hyaluronic acid adds to this, creating moisture and attracting more hydration to the area. Different products used have a different molecular structure of hyaluronic acid, this can make the product thicker or more vicious. In lips, it is important to consider product choice. For more information regarding hyaluronic acid, click here.

What products are used for facial contouring?

At Ametrine we use a range of products for each client individually.
We use the following brands:

What happens in my facial contouring appointment?

1- Consultation– this is to ensure that this treatment is suitable for you. Your medical and social history will be discussed in order to create a treatment plan. Photographs will also be taken for medical records to record the results of the treatment, don’t worry these don’t go anywhere!

2Cleaning: Making sure the skin is free from any bacteria is essential to a safe and infection free treatment. Your skin will be cleaned with a specialised disinfectant. It is useful, therefore to not wear make up to your appointment.
3 Anaesthetic: Topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area being treated.
4- Injection of filler: Careful injections into the surrounding areas being treated, this can be using needle or cannula or both
5- Postoperative Photographs: So we can show you before and after pictures!
6/ Postoperative instructions
: see below.

Why are cannulas used during facial contouring?

Cannulas are blunt ended tube that are throated into the skin to apply the filler. As the tube is blunt, there is less risk of piercing a blood vessel causing complications.

What should I do before my facial contouring appointment?

Before the treatment, avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E and fish oil supplements. These may increase bleeding and bruising. However, you can take paracetamol if needed.
If you are taking any prescribed medication, including aspirin, do not stop taking it – consult your practitioner or your GP first.
Avoid drinking alcohol 24 hours before your treatment, and after as this also increases the risk of bruising.
Make sure you have something to eat prior to the appointment.

What should I do after my facial contouring appointment?

Don’t touch! To reduce the risk of infection, keep those fingers away for at least 6 hours.
Don’t Rub! You might feel that the treated areas feel a little bit lumpy straight after treatment, leave it alone! If you feel that after 10 days the lumps are still present, give them a little massage with some arnica gel. If the lumps still remain, or you are concerned contact us.
Don’t get hot! Gym? Not for 24 hours. Sunbed? Never again, it’s the main cause of skin cancer, but if you insist, leave it for 2 weeks. Using a sunbed also reduces the longevity of fillers.
No Makeup! For at least 24 hours. The tiny little points where the filler is injected can get infected. If you must wear make-up, wear mineral make-up instead.

How can I reduce the swelling after fillers?

There are some things you can do to help reduce the amount of swelling and bruising after fillers.
Arnica Tablets: Arnica montana, or arnica, is an herb widely used for pain and bruising. This is because it contains compounds that are known to have an anti-inflammatory effect that can be absorbed through the skin. Research shows that when taken 3 days before and after treatment can dramatically help reduce the swelling and bruising associated with lip fillers. Click here to buy.
Arnica Gel: Similar to the above arnica gel can be applied to the lips after about 6 hours after treatment, This will cool and soothe the region that has been treated, and also help to reduce the swelling. Click here to buy.
Pineapple: Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes found in the pineapple plant. These enzymes may have anti-inflammatory properties and help reduce bruising and swelling when applied to the skin, and when eaten.
Avoid activities increasing blood pressure: Going to the gym, or getting too warm can increase the amount of blood supply to the treated area and therefore can increase the amount of bruising you may experience.
No Ibuprofen: Aspirin or ibuprofen can increase the amount of blood to the region of treatment, and therefore increase the amount of swelling and bruising experienced.

Are fillers permanent?

No, the product used in filler is hyaluronic acid and is dissolved by the body over time.
