The majority of filler treatments take 15 to 30 minutes and only require one clinic visit.
Before getting the injections, you may need ice, an anesthetic applied to the skin, or a nerve block (an injection). This varies with the filler and area to be treated.

You may feel a stinging or burning sensation as the filler is injected.
