Manipulation with the use of HAFILLER®atakes less than one hour and requires minimum time. Treatment time can vary depending on the individual needs and demands of a patient.
Before the manipulation, you can ask absolutely any questions you have and the doctor should provide you sufficient explanations in all cases.
The initial step before gel injection is:
Getting a complete patient history in order to detect any contraindications for hyaluronic acid gel injection.
Preliminary examination the areas which are desired to be corrected, as well as establishing the possibility of correction of the area.
Signing of informed consent forms for carrying out a manipulation of this type (it is attached to the patient records, where information about following corrections and precautions after the manipulation is also indicated).
The next step is the preparation of the injection area. The doctor should clean and disinfect the area into which the preparation is to be injected. Then, a process of anaesthesia is carried out (local anaesthesia, blockade anaesthesia). The anaesthesia method selection is individual,
The doctor chooses the method of anaesthesia, which is acceptable and which suits a particular area of gel injection best. Each zone has its own pain limit during implant injection, thus the choice of anaesthesia is quite individual and is selected by the direct medical examination before the manipulation.
What you need to know before the manipulation:
Avoid the usage of aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen), tutsan, as well as large doses of vitamin E. The components of these preparations may prolong healing of bruises and also cause more prolonged bleeding at the site of the gel injection.
It is obligatory to tell your doctor about how often you have had symptoms of herpes outbreaks. A few days before the procedure, the doctor may prescribe you to use medicine that will reduce the risk of herpes recurrence.
What is recommended to observe and to do after the procedure:
Apply a cold compress to the site of injection in order to reduce swelling.
Avoid touching the site of injection during the first 6 hours after the manipulation in order not to hurt the skin, which is very sensitive after the gel injection. 6 hours after the manipulation, you can gently wash the injection site with soap and water.
Avoid severe temperature differences, such as exposure to heat (e.g. a solarium or being in direct sunlight) and to cold.
During the week after the manipulation, avoid use of aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, tutsan, as well as a higher dose of vitamin E. The components of these preparations may increase bruising.
