Frequently Asked Questions about Dermal Fillers
How do Dermal Fillers work?
Your dermatologist will inject the filler into the area, often giving you several injections to produce the best results.
How long do dermal filler treatments take?
Most treatments take between 15 and 30 minutes.
When will I see results?
This varies with the filler. Most fillers produce immediately or close results. A filler can also stimulate your body to produce collagen, but this happens over time.
How long will the results last?
Most fillers offer temporary results and require repeat treatments to maintain the results.
Do Dermal Filler injections hurt?
You may feel a stinging or burning sensation as the filler is injected. Before the procedure, you may need ice, an anesthetic or a nerve blocker. This varies with the filler and area to be treated.
How quickly will I recover?
Most patients can return to their everyday activities after leaving the office. To reduce swelling, your dermatologist may recommend icing the area for 15 to 20 minutes before you leave. You should be able to apply makeup.
What can I expect following the treatment?
You may have redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising after receiving filler injections. You should wait until the next day to exercise or do any other strenuous activity, stay out of the sun and avoid touching the treated area.
