Before You Go
Questions to ask your doctor:
- I'm looking for a more attractive lip line. Is CosmoPlast the best filler to provide this definition?
- I want to smooth the bump on top of my nose. Is CosmoPlast a good way to test what a nose job would look like?
Pre-procedure prep for CosmoPlast: Consuming aspirin, ibuprofen, and other blood thinners can increase bruising and swelling, thereby increasing your recovery period. If possible, avoid them before your appointment.
On the day of treatment: CosmoPlast injections are not associated with allergic reactions, so no pre-procedure testing is required.
What To Expect
CosmoPlast injections are inserted through a thin needle. After the injections, your skin will probably be red, bruised and tender. It may take up to three days for the subsequent redness and swelling to subside.
Duration: CosmoPlast injections take 20 minutes to an hour. Total treatment time depends on how many areas you're injecting with CosmoPlast.
How Painful Is It?
CosmoPlast syringes are laced with lidocaine, a numbing agent that makes the injections tolerable.
Options for anesthesia: CosmoPlast contains an anesthetic agent called lidocaine that numbs the skin. For an additional anesthetic, like a topical numbing cream, you'll need to make a special request.
