FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS MADE OF?
Dermal fillers are composed of biodegradable gels naturally found in human cells. They are manufactured under strict sterile conditions using recombinant gene technology and tend to be well tolerated when injected into our bodies, not even requiring allergy testing.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAL FILLER?
With age, our facial complexion changes. Our skin becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Dermal fillers allow us to control the undesired effects of aging more subtly over time. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, this type of treatment allows a more natural looking result that doesn’t alter your facial expression and can even be reversed if required.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal Fillers are commonly used to help reshape facial contours. The most popular areas are the nasolabial folds and around the cheeks and chin, to smooth away smile lines, and add volume and shape to the lips and the cheeks.The results from a single session can be seen instantly and last for up to 6 months.
ARE DERMAL FILLERS PAINFUL?
During the procedure you can expect to feel a slight pinch and a ‘stinging’ sensation, as the dermal filler is being injected. Most patients find it very tolerable and opt to treat several areas in a single session. But pain tolerance is a very individual and subjective thing and, in the end, it all comes down to your own sensitivity in the treatment area. Speak to your doctor if you have any concerns that may require numbing creams or anesthetics.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS AFTER HAVING DERMAL FILLERS?
The most common side effects of dermal fillers include swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness in the injection site. But all of these usually occur within 24 hours post-treatment and are expected to disappear within 2-3 days. However, it is always advisable to check any distress that may be concerning you with your clinician.
