  • Inj - Can I get cosmetic injectable treatments while pregnant

    No. Your safety is our main concern and for this reason, we do not treat clients who are pregnant. We advise against all cosmetic injectable treatments whilst pregnant simply out of precaution and due to the lack of information available on cosmetic injectable treatment effects on the fetus.

    Dermal Fillers feel like a slight pinch, and you may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation as the product is being injected. Everyone experiences pain differently and has different pain thresholds. A topical anaesthetic can be used if needed. However, a topical anaesthetic can be used if needed. Please obtain this from your Pharmacist prior to your treatment.

    It is recommended to repeat the treatment before the muscle movements return to normal which is typically 3-4 months. This way there is an overlap in results and a continued softening effect.

  • Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections work preventatively?

    Yes. Anti-Wrinkle Injections influence the movement of the facial muscles and reduce the contractions to prevent future lines from forming earlier than they might naturally. It is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments that we offer at Laser Clinics New Zealand.

  • How many units will I need to get rid of my frown lines and crow’s feet?

    To determine the correct dosage, we advise you to book in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced Cosmetic Injectors at your nearest Laser Clinics New Zealand location.

  • How long do Dermal Fillers last?

    Dermal Fillers can last up to three to six months and in some cases longer depending on how fast the body metabolises the product. Lips are a high activity area as we use them all the time, this can impact how long the results will last.

  • Can I eat or drink after Lip Fillers?

    Yes, you can eat and drink after Lip Filler. It may feel a little strange at first as there may be some swelling present. For the first 24 hours, you'll want to avoid eating foods that require excessive chewing so the product can settle.

    The most common side effects occur within 24 hours or immediately post-treatment. These include swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness.

    Immediate side effects usually disappear within days. However, depending on the type of Dermal Filler used, it can take a few weeks. At Laser Clinics New Zealand we strongly encourage a review appointment which is complimentary 2 weeks post-treatment to discuss your treatment results.

  • What is the aftercare for Dermal Filler treatment?

    As with any Laser Clinics Australia treatment, our Dermal Filler Cosmetic Injectable treatments come with important after-care recommendations in order to achieve the best results. Our experienced medical team share their post-treatment advice:

    - Remain upright for four hours following your treatment and avoid lying down while the product settles into place.
    - Avoid any Skin Treatments like Microdermabrasion, Skin Needling, or Dermal Rolling for two weeks after Dermal Fillers
    - Avoid active skincare products such as Retinol for at least 5 days after the treatment.
    - Avoid alcohol and painkillers such as ibuprofen before and after treatment as they tend to thin the blood and can make you prone to bruising.
    - Do not exercise for 24 hours after your treatment and avoid any exercise that involves inverted poses (e.g. yoga, pilates, barre, etc) and provoke sweating as the Dermal Filler is settling into place.
    - Avoid exposing your skin to excessive heat or cold including saunas, spas, steam rooms, hot yoga, ice baths, or skiing. Changes in temperature can lead you to touch or rub your face more which can put unwanted pressure on the treated muscles, risking dispersion of the protein into unwanted areas.
    - Avoid massaging or applying pressure to the face which can affect how the product settles in a particular area. When cleansing the skin and applying skincare and makeup, only use gentle strokes.
