As Dermal Fillers increase in popularity, more individuals are wanting to add volume and definition to their facial features and minimize those fine lines without going under the knife. If you’re considering Dermal Filler injections to address a particular issue or for preventative measures, here are our top FAQs we receive regarding our Dermal Filler treatment.
1.What can dermal fillers do to my face and skin?
Dermal Fillers can enhance an individual’s facial features or replace lost volume in a variety of areas:
- Minimizing the fine lines around the lips, chin, cheeks, corners of the mouth and forehead
- Smoothing out smile lines
- Filling in hollow areas under the eyes
- Defining features such as the nose and jawline
- Refreshing multiple areas for a non-invasive facelift
- Improving acne scarring and general aging skincare
2.What do dermal fillers contain?
Depending on the type of dermal fillers, one clinic may offer a different one from another. SKIN CLUB – Cosmetic Doctors use a range of Teoxane hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers. HA is a natural complex sugar that is produced naturally in our bodies and when injected, it dissolves naturally in the body over time. Dr. Vihang Sharma believes that superior facial rejuvenation results are achieved as HA fillers can retain collagen and increase moisture which allows for a more natural and youthful appearance.
3.Are there any side effects?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are considered a safe form of cosmetic injections since HA is found in our bodies, too. However, as with any injectable treatment, possible minor side effects are bruising and swelling. More uncommon side effects could include pain, itching, and a rash around the injection site. To avoid experiencing side effects, it is important to go to a highly experienced and qualified cosmetic doctor only.
4.How long do dermal fillers last?
The results of Dermal Fillers can last between 12– 18 months depending on the treated areas of the face. Dermal filler injectables in more active areas such as the lips or mouth will break down quicker than those that don’t have as much movement.
5.Do I need an anesthetic?
While fillers are noninvasive procedures and a local anesthetic is incorporated into the dermal fillers, individuals may still experience some minor pain and discomfort during their injectable treatment. To minimize this, you can request a topical anesthetic and/or an ice pack to numb the treated area before the Injections.
6.How long does the dermal filler treatment take?
Most dermal filler procedures can take between 15 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the individual’s needs.
7.What is the cost of dermal filler treatment?
Dermal filler treatment cost ranges from $795 – $995 per ml. This is an estimated price range only and will depend on the number of areas treated and the assessment of the cosmetic doctor. Currently, interested new patients can book in for a free initial consultation which is usually at $180.
