Dermal fillers are a popular way to treat wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and even sagging skin, sunken cheeks and hollow jaw lines. While it is a fairly safe treatment with well understood risks, a lot of our clients express some fears and concerns about this treatment, and in this post, we will look at some of the most common ones:
1. Are they suitable for all?
Our consultation before the procedure starts will ascertain whether dermal fillers would be right for you. In our experience, most people can go ahead and get dermal fillers. However, there are a few exceptions like women who are expecting, or lactating mothers.
2. Artificially plump face
Some fear that a botched procedure could result in puffed up faces and lips, but dermal fillers have come a long way today, and can give amazingly precise results. Moreover, fillers can be used all over the face to achieve a naturally balanced look. Moreover, if you choose to get your treatment at a reputable clinic like Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, you can rest assured that your treatment is in experienced hands.
3. Will it be painful?
A lot of clients are often surprised at how pain free this procedure is. This is because we use very fine, sterilized needles to inject the fillers so at most, you might feel a prick. The fillers also contain a local anaesthetic, which desensitizes you to any pain during the procedure. We also take additional care with some ice packs / numbing cream in case needed, so that you are comfortable and pain free.
4. When will the results start showing, and how long will they last?
Dermal fillers can give almost instantaneous results. The treated area could be slightly red and / or swollen, though this largely settles down in a few hours. Subtle swelling could last for up to a week. The final results start showing after 30 – 45 days of treatment, and depending on the treatment area, type of filler, and post procedure care taken, these could last anywhere between 6 months to 2 years!
5. Will dermal fillers require much downtime?
Most clients can usually resume work within a day of treatment. However, we recommend that you do not get your treatment immediately before a big event / special occasion, as there could be minor swelling and bruises which typically take 2 weeks to subside.
Wherever you choose to get your dermal filler treatment, ensure that the clinic has well qualified and experienced aestheticians on hand and that you know about all the possible risks that are involved with the procedure.
