Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a pain relief during treatment?

A numbing cream (eg EMLA or LMX ) may be applied to the area prior to the treatment.
Glad wrap may be used over the numbing cream to increase its effect.
There is local anaesthetic in the dermal filler

What happens during the injectables treatment itself?

The area will be cleaned with alcohol, then Jade with use a needle with syringe to implant tiny droplets of filler in the desired areas. Ice packs may be applied to keep the area cool. The whole injection process takes about 15 minutes.

How will I look after dermal filler in the Marionette?

This is different for everyone, some client may look a tiny bit red where as others you cannot even tell.

Are there any side effects /risks with dermal fillers in the Marionette?

Bruising: occurs in few number of cases.
Swelling: in the injection area may occur. This will last for approx 48 hours
Tyndall Effect:Blue appearance of the dermal filler under the skin
Lumps:Our implantation and massage technique means this is unlikely
Asymmetry: Sometimes one side is better treated than the other, this is usually because the patient is asymmetrical to start with. Nasolabia folds are notoriously asymmetrical. Most patients will have different doses to each side of the nasolabial folds
Infection: is a very rare complication, but always a possibility when the needle goes into the skin.
Necrosis: (blood vessel being blocked, interfering with blood supply to the skin) is very rare. This could lead to scarring.
Need for further treatment: It may take several syringes of product to get to where the patient wants to be.

Instructions for care afterward?

  • No makeup for 6 hours
  • No heavy exercise that day
  • No acid face products for 24 hours
  • No spas no saunas, no hot yoga for 2-3 days post treatment

What to expect after the Marionette dermal filler treatment?

The effect of the dermal filler will be obvious immediately
Most of the swelling from the dermal filler will have resolved by 2-3 days after the procedure. There may be a small amount of swelling for even 2-4 weeks after the procedure.
Bruising will last 7-8 days

What if I get asymmetry at some time before the 2 week point? Do I call Jade?

No. No need to call Jade. Sometimes asymmetry will occur because one side is more swollen or bruised. Usually it will right itself by the time of the review appointment. If it doesn’t, then it can be examined at the review appointment. There is no point in coming in early for treatment of asymmetry as there is often swelling associated and so the final result cannot be seen until at least 2 weeks. Treating asymmetry too early could lead to further asymmetry

How long will the treatment last?

The answer to this is very individual and depends on the patient’s anatomy, metabolism, the dose, the placement, the product etc.

What are marionette lines

Marionette lines are the lines / folds which start at the mouth corners and go downwards ending at the jawline.

AGING OF THE LOWER FACE

With aging, the bone and soft tissue dissolves in the face, and in women, the skull rotates with the chin moving backwards. These features contribute to loss of structural support which creates the jowl and adjacent to the jowl the marionette.

Dermal filler can fill in the depression of the marionette fold.

TREATMENT OF THE MARIONETTES WITH DERMAL FILLERS

Choosing the amount of dermal fillers

The dose required for marionette folds variable. It depends on the anatomy and the desired result. Some patients will be satisfied with 1ml, others will need more get the results that they want.

Jade will assess the face and decide on the best amount after taking a history and examining the patient. If a patient has a history of complications with dermal fillers, or if their budget is small or if they want a more subtle result, then a smaller amount might be chosen to start with.
