Dermal fillers are a great way to improve the look of your face. They can be used to plump up cheeks, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, or even create fuller lips. Dermal fillers are made up of collagen and hyaluronic acid which are naturally present in your body.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a substance that is injected beneath the skin to add volume and smooth out wrinkles. They can be used to treat acne scars, acne pits, indentations caused by liposuction and folds in the neck.
Are they safe?
There is a lot of debate about whether dermal fillers are safe. Of course, they are if used correctly. But it’s important to keep in mind that there are risks involved.
Some possible side effects include:
- Allergic reactions
- Bruising and swelling around the injection site
- Infection at the injection site (a rare occurrence)
- Skin discolouration (usually temporary)
If you’re worried about these potential side effects, talk to your doctor about your options. They may be able to give you alternative treatments or suggest ways for reducing the likelihood of an adverse reaction during treatment.
How long do they last?
Depending on the type of filler, dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 12 months. Some are permanent, while others aren’t.
If you’re considering dermal fillers, it’s important that you understand the treatment process and how long it will last before deciding whether or not to move forward with treatment. If you don’t know what to expect in terms of results after your procedure, then you may become disappointed if your results don’t last for as long as you’d hoped.
Is it permanent?
While dermal fillers are typically not permanent, they fortunately will not last forever. The average person will see the effects for about 6 months to a year after their procedure. This can vary depending on the type of filler used, as well as the area of your face that is treated.
While you may think that this means you’ll have to get more injections in order to keep up with the ageing process, there’s good news.
Are there any side effects?
There are side effects to consider, such as swelling, bruising and pain. You may also experience an allergic reaction to the filler material. Infection is possible but rare and usually treatable with antibiotics. Overcorrection or under-correction of the desired result may occur if too much or too little filler is injected into your skin.
Be aware and get informed
- Be aware of the risks.
- Get informed about the procedures.
- Consult your doctor before you get any treatment.
Dermal fillers are a great way to help you achieve the appearance you want. They’re safe, effective and can be used on many different areas of the face and body. Just remember that these products are not permanent and results may vary from person to person due to their natural reaction when injected into your skin. It is important to consult with a licensed dermatologist if considering this treatment as they will be able to provide honest advice based off their experience with dermal fillers as well as other cosmetic procedures.
