Fillers Q & A

The Beauty Medics

How do dermal fillers work? 

Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that your body already produces. Hyaluronic acid encourages your cells to hold onto water, giving you a hydrated, plump, and youthful look. Production of it declines with age, which is why you experience wrinkling and a sunken appearance. But when you restore it with these fillers, you naturally give your face a youthful, full look.

 

Where are fillers most effective?

The type of filler best for you depends on where on your face you need treatment. The best candidates for dermal fillers are physically healthy nonsmokers. You should also have a commitment to good skin care and a realistic expectation for your results from the fillers.

Fillers can improve the look of:

  • Nasal folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Tear troughs
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Thin lips

 

What should I expect during treatment with dermal fillers?

The staff injects dermal fillers into the specified treatment areas using very fine needles. The fillers contain lidocaine, which acts as a local anesthetic, but you will feel a pinprick. On request, you can also receive a topical numbing cream or ice to alleviate discomfort from the injections; no anesthesia is required. Treatment takes just about 20 minutes.

 

How long do the effects of fillers last?

The results of dermal fillers last between four and nine months, depending on the product and the area treated. The team at The Beauty Medics can put you on a regular treatment schedule to help you maintain the youthful look achieved with the injections.

 

Is there any downtime associated with dermal filler treatment?

Dermal filler injections are considered a minor cosmetic procedure. They usually have a downtime of 24-48 hours. You may have a little bruising, swelling, or redness following the injections. Swelling, itching, and the feeling of hard lumps at the injection sites is also possible. Most of these side effects subside within a few hours or days.

The team at The Beauty Medics recommends you refrain from consuming alcohol, strenuous exercise, or exposure to direct sunlight in the week or two following treatment. You can reduce discomfort, swelling, and redness with the application of an ice pack.
