Consult your healthcare professionals about your expected pain control before treatment.

Any injection may cause personal discomfort, and this may depend on the site for injection, personal sensitivity or the technique used by your health care professional. Application of topical anesthesia to the injected area before treatment will significantly reduce pain or discomfort during the procedure. FACILLE Light includes lidocaine, a widely used topical aesthetic making the procedure essentially pain-free.

If you have concerns regarding allergy or hypersensitivity, consult with your healthcare professional prior to treatment so a proper medical assessment can be performed.

  • KEEP injection site dry and clean after treatment within at least 2 weeks.
  • AVOID touching implanted area, taking alcohol, drugs, or applying facial care products and cosmetics for few days after injection to decline stronger bruising, swelling, and the risk of inflammation.
  • AVOID exposing injected sites to hot and humid environments, such as solarium, sauna and sunlight or frigid climate environment until initial swelling and redness have recovered.
  • AVOID injecting complementary gels in implanted areas after treatment in the next 7 days.
  • DO NOT over massage or compress the fragile implanted area few days after injection for reducing risk of wound contamination or irregular shape.
  • AVOID excessive movements, such as jumping, jogging and running, to decrease the risks of local mobility and implant displacement.

The primary component of dermal filler is Hyaluronic Acid, a carbohydrate found throughout nature in the animal kingdom, including the human body. It keeps our connective tissues hydrated and makes the skin plump, but declines with ageing. It also acts as a humectant which locks in moisture, rejuvenates and restores firmness of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid gels are highly biocompatible and safe to use. Dermal fillers augment skin wrinkles and contours by enhancing the elasticity of the skin, reducing Hyaluronic degradation that occurs over time. The effect is to make skin smooth, elastic and look younger.

The implantation of the product must be practiced under national legislation by authorized professionals, trained with implantation injection and have sufficient anatomical knowledge of treatment site. Injecting Dermal Fillers with anesthetics into human body operated by qualified professionals is regarded as a safe procedure. However, any injection procedure is associated with the risks of infection. Experienced and trained authorized professionals with appropriate injecting techniques may reduce the risk of inflammation. Also, please consult professionals to evaluate your physical conditions (e.g. potential side effects/symptoms, any allergies, medication…) and actively inform doctors of these information prior to the procedure.
