DERMAL FILLERS & INJECTABLE FILLERS Q & A

  • When do I see the results?

    The results are immediate and you will notice volume in the treated area right away. Swelling does interfere a bit with the results at first. It takes a full 2 weeks see the final results, of when the swelling disappears, but usually after 3 days you can have a more realistic result when the majority of swelling goes down.
  • Swelling? How much will I have?

    Swelling is caused by 2 things: 1) the trauma from the needle , and 2) the high affinity that hyaluronic acid fillers have for water. The treated area will swell, however this will vary from patient to patient and also depends on what area of the face was injected; usually the lips swell the most. Icing the area and keeping your head elevated will help to reduce swelling.
  • Is there a recovery time?

    Recovery time is quick and you may continue regular activities right after the procedure is complete.
  • When is the best time to inject a filler?

    We suggest that if you have a major social engagement, or special event coming up that it is not best to have an injection the day before. Since there may be some swelling and possible bruising, it is best to wait either after the event or have the injection several days before.
  • Will I look like I “had work done”?

    The goal of dermal fillers is to subtly enhance your beauty as well reduce the signs of aging. The best results are those that harmonize your facial features and balance out volume Some patients may want more volume than others. It is best to describe in detail the look and cosmetic result that you want to your injector.
  • What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid fillers, compared to permanent fillers?

    Since hyaluronic acid fillers are comprised of a substance that is naturally already occurring almost everything living thing, there is a very low chance of having an adverse reaction or allergy to the product. Permanent fillers are often completely man-made products that are not smooth and rather lumpy, so the results over time with permanent fillers can also be lumpy and bumpy.
  • What are some side effects to injectable fillers?

    Potential side effects include mild bruising, redness, swelling, tenderness and itching. There may also be some mild discomfort around the area treated. However, a great deal can depend upon the individual's condition.
