What does Phi-Lift involve at The Centre?
Dr. De Silva and his team will use a numbing local anaesthesia cream to reduce discomfort from the procedure. The numbing cream is specially made for Dr. De Silva and was designed in Beverley Hills and manufactured in Germany. After this a small anaesthetic injection is applied in the already numb area. The Dermal Filler is then used to augment the cheeks. At The Centre we used ‘Fast-Healing’ techniques that utilize a Cannula to administer the filler for most patients, this results in less swelling and bruising than older needle based techniques. Additionally, dermal fillers can be used on other facial areas at the same time as on the cheeks to give an enhanced natural result. At The Centre we specialize in ‘Natural Looking Results’ and some patients require may a top up treatment at two weeks.
When will I see the Results from Phi-Lift?
At The Centre you can expect to see relatively ‘Instant Results’ with our filler treatments. There will be minor swelling after filler treatment that for most patients resolves over night, often there can be mild swelling for 5-days (in approximately 5%). There is a small possibility, <2% of a minor bruise, this will resolve over a few days. We use the latest in technology to enhance recovery such as ‘No-Needle” Cannula techniques that enhance recovery. For most patients, the final results of cheek fillers will be evident approximately 5-days after the swelling subsides. With our techniques (Cannula based technique, application of filler at deeper levels) and filler choice will last 18 – 24 months, although results may vary from patient to patient.
