What to expect
After Dermal Fillers Treatment?
When you arrive for your dermal fillers treatment, the area is cleaned, and you may be given a topical anaesthetic to numb the area before the injection. The anaesthetic helps reduce any discomfort that you may have during the injection.
Before you undergo the dermal fillers treatment, discuss with your doctor what to expect. How soon you see the desired results depends upon the type of dermal fillers used and the area of the body treated. In some parts of the body, you may notice immediate results, but it may take a few days to observe changes in others.
Some people may experience mild bruising or swelling around the injected area. However, these effects are temporary and resolve by themselves in a few days.
You can resume your routine activities after treatment, but you must avoid strenuous activity for a day or two.

What Our Patients Say About Us
for 10 years, every single day, i asked God to send me an angle to save my soul and he sent Dr. John Shamoun. Such a beautiful angle.
I know several girls that have had breast augmentations from Doc shamoun and he’s by far the best plastic surgeon around would highly recommend him! He’s very particular and confident with his work.
Dr. Shamoun is a great surgeon, very busy but takes him to care about people. Another surgeon referred me to him for a breast revision and Shamoun did a great job back in 2019! Thanks for having an impact in my life!
Did a beautiful breast augmentation for me in 2001 and it still looks great! They look so natural. They look so great that people wonder if they are implants but aren’t sure. Money well spent!
