Dermal fillers serve various purposes, including:

  • Addressing moderate to severe wrinkles and folds
  • Treating nasolabial folds
  • Enhancing cheeks and lips
  • Correcting contour deficiencies related to aging
  • Smoothing perioral lines or lines around the mouth
  • Alleviating infraorbital hollowness
  • Enhancing the chin
  • Augmenting the jawline

These versatile applications make dermal fillers a versatile solution for achieving a range of aesthetic goals.

Prior to undergoing the procedure, there are a few essential steps to take:

  • During a consultation with your provider, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your goals and desired outcomes from the procedure.
  • Your provider will thoroughly review your health history to ensure there are no contraindications that might prevent you from receiving dermal fillers on the scheduled day of the procedure.

By engaging in these preparatory measures, you’re helping to guarantee a safe and effective dermal filler procedure tailored to your needs and circumstances.

Throughout the procedure, certain steps are followed to ensure your comfort and achieve optimal results:

  • Topical numbing will be applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure, typically requiring around 30-45 minutes.
  • The provider will take before and after photos, documenting your treatment progress and outcomes in your medical record.
  • Dermal filler will be skillfully administered using specific techniques tailored to the area you wish to have treated.
  • Tiny needles are employed to accurately deliver the filler product to your desired treatment areas.
  • It’s important to note that only a limited amount of hyaluronic acid (HA) filler can be utilized for a particular area. This may necessitate multiple visits to achieve your desired outcome.

By meticulously following these steps, the procedure is designed to deliver both a comfortable experience and satisfying results tailored to your preferences.

Following the procedure, the use of ice is a common practice to help reduce swelling. You’ll also be provided with post-procedure gel, which should be applied topically as necessary to minimize both bruising and swelling. The healing process can span from 7 to 14 days. If any adjustments are required, these will typically be conducted 3 to 4 weeks after the procedure to ensure the best possible results.
Frequently observed side effects encompass swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, formation of lumps, and itching at the injection site. Additionally, there might be impaired hand function. While uncommon, serious side effects include infections that have a delayed onset, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, vascular occlusion, and superficial necrosis at the injection site . Although the probability is low, there is a potential for unintentional injection into a blood vessel, which can lead to significant and possibly permanent complications such as vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or lasting scarring of the skin. As with all procedures involving skin injections, there exists a risk of infection.
  • Anyone taking blood thinners
  • Medications that suppress your body immune system
  • Existing skin infections, pimples rashes, hives, or cyst until healing is complete
  • Anyone with uncontrolled diabetes or impaired wound healing
  • Anyone who has had facial surgery or HA filler in the past 4 weeks
While immediate results are noticeable, it’s important to consider that swelling might impact the final outcome.
