1. Are aesthetic medicine treatments painful?

They are generally well tolerated by patients, especially because they do not require much time. Local anaesthetics are provided in order to alleviate unpleasant sensations. Neither sedation nor deep anesthesia are required for the procedures.

2-Do fillers have any potential side effects?

Redness may appear near the area where the injection was given, however it is temporary and disappears within a few hours. There is a 20% possibility of minor bruising due to broken capillaries,  but they diminish quickly over the span of a few days.

3-What are the major contraindications for those who wish to try aesthetic medicine for the first time?

Aesthetic medicine is not recommended for those with ongoing severe chronic diseases or those that have not yet been fully clarified, such as neoplastic disease, heart disease, nervous system. Those suffering from collagen diseases (eg scleroderma) require a cautious approach, but they are not excluded. Please inform your doctor about all of your current treatments as well as food and drug allergies.

4 – Are aesthetic medicine treatments always reversible?

Only in the case of injections, such as fillers and Botox, will the effects subside in the period of 4 to 6 months. Other treatments, such as laser, acne scar or blemish removal, are permanent.

5. Are there different ranges of products? How can we determine which products are the best?

There are numerous types of injectable products on the market today. The largest pharmaceutical companies provide  a trustworthy high standard for their products. My suggestion is to always ask for the name of the product used and to read about the manufacturer, the quality, and the guarantee.
