What is Dermal Filler?
Replacement fillers are designed to work by restoring lost volume or filling furrows. Studies have also shown that by stretching the skin or epidermis and creating an injury of sorts, these
injectables may actually prompt a tiny bit of new collagen production.
Facial Filler Treatment
• The area to be injected will be cleansed, commonly with alcohol and a topical anesthetic cream, icing to the injection sites or a local anesthetic by direct injection (such as a dental block/nerve block) may be used for your comfort (optional)
• Once your treatment region in numbed, your practitioner will make injections in several locations, placing the dermal filler where correction or volume enhancement is desired.
• Your practitioner may massage or manipulate the area where the filler has been placed. The treated area may be cleansed again.
• You may be given ice or cold packs to place on the treated area to minimize swelling and bruising.
• The entire treatment process may take 20 to 30 minutes or more.
Immediately after a dermal filler treatment, patients will be able to see a difference in the way they look.
However, swelling may persist for 3 to 5 days after the initial treatment. Once the swelling subsides the treated area will have slightly less volume.
Different dermal filler injections produce effects that last for differing amounts of time. For example, most patients go in for a follow-up maintenance treatment at about 6 months or when the filler seems to be diminishing.
Most patients require less dermal filler on the subsequent treatment than what was required at first.
Several sessions are usually needed and the number differs between the depth and age of the scars and the type of skin each individual has.
