Questions to Ask Your Med Spa About Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are the second most popular non-surgical facial cosmetic treatment in the US today after Botox. At the time of your initial consultation at a qualified med spa, you should feel free to ask questions about dermal filler injections in order to make an informed decision. A dedicated provider will answer your questions accurately and in detail.

What is the composition of dermal fillers?

Different formulations of dermal fillers are available today, but the most commonly used filler injections include hyaluronic acid as the active ingredient. This is a natural substance found in the body, which performs the function of volumizing the skin and holding it together.

How do dermal fillers work?

Due to aging and other factors, depletion of hyaluronic acid occurs in the skin, causing loose facial skin and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can replenish this substance through injections placed directly in the affected areas of your face. This cause near-instant plumping up of your skin and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Dermal filler treatment is completely safe, as long as you receive it from a qualified provider at a trusted medical spa. The FDA has approved various types of dermal filler injections for specific facial cosmetic enhancement purposes. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are the safest because the substance is biocompatible, and you will not require prior allergy tests.

Which are popular HA-based dermal fillers?

Juvederm, Restylane, and Revanesse are some of the most sought-after, FDA approved dermal fillers which are based on hyaluronic acid. Millions of women and men in the US and around the world have benefitted from these cosmetic filler treatments to reduce their facial signs of aging.

How long do the results last?

The longevity of results will vary depending on the type of dermal filler injection you have chosen, the extent of your facial skin laxity, and the skill of your injection provider. In general, results with HA-based facial fillers can last from six months to one year. You can repeat the treatment in future to extend the aesthetic benefits.

Is the injection treatment painful?

You will not experience any significant discomfort during the dermal filler injection treatment, provided you work with a proven expert. These fillers usually include the local anesthetic lidocaine, or your provider will apply a topical numbing cream prior to your procedure. This will keep you comfortable throughout the injection process.

What is the recovery time after this procedure?

Facial filler injections involve almost no downtime or any special recovery process. You should be able to return to your normal routine the same day after your treatment session. Minor swelling in the injection sites may occur initially, which will quickly resolve on its own. Results will establish fully within the first week to 10 days.
