WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DERMAL FILLERS
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable medications that help reverse signs of aging by filling in hollows, fine lines, and wrinkles on both your face and body. They can also add volume to your lips, lift your cheeks, and plump any area that has lost volume due to aging and collagen loss. Unlike other cosmetic treatments that bring gradual results, the benefits of fillers appear immediately then last from 4 to 12 months.
Which filler is right for me?
Each filler contains a unique blend of ingredients and works differently. Our experts can help determine your best option based on your aesthetic goals. Certain fillers work best in certain areas, which we can discuss and determine during your consultation.
How do dermal fillers work?
Some fillers are Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are made up of a soft injectable gel. Hyaluronic Acid is a molecule that’s found naturally in your body. Once injected into treatment areas, it binds with water then expands, resulting in more volume and less sagging or wrinkling. The gel is tissue-friendly and long-lasting, though not permanent. Dermal filler treatments are widely used in medical aesthetics to add volume, plump up and reduce the appearance of lines and folds.
Can anyone have a dermal filler treatment?
Dermal fillers aren’t intended for young people or those with skin injuries near injection sites. Let our team know if you’re planning to have laser treatments or chemical peels, take blood-thinning medications, or if you have a history of excessive scarring.
Do dermal filler injections hurt?
Most fillers contain the numbing agent - lidocaine - for comfort. We provide you topical numbing cream as well, and ice after the treatment. Though rare, you may experience some amount of pain, tenderness, itching, bruising, swelling, or redness after your treatment. These effects range from mild to moderate and are usually temporary.
What should I do after my dermal filler treatment?
Most people can go straight back to their usual daily activities after a filler treatment. You’ll want to avoid strenuous exercise, alcoholic drinks, and extensive sun or heat exposure for 48 hours at least, to let the product settle successfully.
Are there any risks involved with dermal fillers?
All of our products are FDA-approved and safe for the body. Product-related reactions are rare. There are some injection-related reactions that include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising, or tenderness. After lip enhancements, there is usually some slight swelling that can occur as well.
