Do the injections hurt?

Juvéderm® ULTRA contains the anaesthetic lidocaine. The addition of anaesthetic provides a gentle, pain-free injection experience that allows you to really 'feel the difference'.

How many treatments will I need?

Juvéderm® ULTRA is approved by the FDA as lasting up to one year, and Juvederm Voluma can last up to 18 months.

Usually you only need one treatment and the effect is immediate!

After this time a repeat treatment is usually needed to maintain the effect.

Are there any side effects?

Juvéderm® ULTRA is unsuitable for patients who are allergic to anaesthetic or Hyaluronic Acid. Rarely, a transient numbness or tenderness may develop in the treated area. Mild bruising may occur. If you are prone to cold sores at the injection site, treatment may bring out another eruption. Finally, any injection carries a small risk of infection. If you are pregnant or breast feeding the treatment is not recommended. A consent form outlining, in detail, all of the possible risks and benefits is read carefully and signed by all clients before any treatment is given.

Who is the best person to do the treatment?

Always make sure that your practitioner is medically or nursing qualified, and has as much experience as possible with the product being used.

Dr Anthony O'Neill and Jenny O'Neill RGN are both highly experienced cosmetic practitioners, having been using dermal fillers and Botox® for over 17 years.

They have been using the Allergan range of products for 16 years, so are very well versed in their use, and have great confidence in the product.

Their clinic is registered with the Care Quality Commission, and has recently had a routine inspection, and happily met all of the standards required. You can access our latest cqc report here: http://www.cqc.org.uk/location/1-130493251.
