What the dermal filler contains?
Answer: In 90% of cases it is high quality hyaluronic acid or collagen. Their action is complex for the skin – moisturizing, smoothing, filling (both for scars and fine lines and wrinkles), restorative and firming. In fact, in any pharmacy you can buy a product with this acid, which is natural to the human body. But with the injection of hyaluronic or collagen filler, its action is in depth and with up to 80% higher efficiency for the epidermis and cells.
What is the guarantee that it will not hurt me?
Answer: The guarantee is almost 100%, because local anesthesia is applied before the procedure. This is standard lidocaine. It is important to make sure that you are not allergic to it before the procedure.
Are only wrinkles treated with a dermal filler?
Answer: Recently, more and more women are achieving great results with fillers on areas affected by aggressive acne, which, although cured, has left defects in the form of scars.
Can anyone inject a dermal filler?
Answer: The procedure involves injecting active agents and anesthesia, which is why it is highly undesirable to perform by a non-medical person. Fillers must be installed by a medical professional.
How long does the effect last?
Answer: There is no unambiguous answer. Usually, the first filler shows a result, but it will not last more than a few weeks, so a re-injection is required. Over time, the skin improves and it is recommended to apply fillers at least every 3-4 months for a long-lasting fresh look on the face.
What should I not do after placement?
Answer: The question must be discussed with your aesthetic specialist because of the specifics of the composition of different brands of hyaluronic acid or collagen. However, the standard recommendations are to avoid visiting the solarium, increased water intake for about a week after the procedure and no makeup until 10 hours after it.
I am 25 years old, can I put a filler?
Answer: In practice, there are no contraindications for age-related dermal fillers. Realistically, treating wrinkles at such a young age is pointless. However, since the fillers are also used for another effect – refreshing, filling, smoothing and treating scars – they are completely acceptable for people under the age of 35, which is the starting age for anti-aging procedures.
Is there such a thing as an addiction to dermal fillers?
Answer: There can be no physical dependence on any of the filler ingredients. Another issue is that many women are “addicted” to caring about their appearance. In reality, however, with the same effect, they can develop an “addiction” to any other procedure – Botox, facial cleansing, oxygen therapy and even excessive use of cosmetics.
Is there a suitable season for placement?
Answer: Modern dermal fillers are suitable for all seasons. Myth is that they are contraindicated for the summer season due to the strong sun. In practice, the use of high-factor sunscreen is a piece of advice that every lady should consider, whether she is undergoing specific aesthetic procedures, fighting signs of old age or simply maintaining her skin with a clear and even complexion.
What to choose a temporary or permanent filler?
Answer: Permanent fillers are banned in many parts of the world due to the high risk of side effects. Although their results are long-lasting, they are not recommended. Temporary fillers are a far safer option because they include natural ingredients that dissolve in the dermal layer without causing any lasting side effects.
