10 Things Before Dermal Fillers

Some people are blessed with luscious lips and smooth skin naturally, but others may need a little help from their dermatologists. Dermal fillers are one of the most used injectable treatments that are used by celebrates, influencers and regular people all over the world. They are safe, affordable, and subtle making them a favorite for those who want a polished look. Although dermal fillers are safe, Art of Facial Rejuvenation wants you to keep these 10 points in mind before scheduling your appointment.

1. Filler Injections are Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is found in the skin naturally, which makes them a great choice to use as fillers. Collagen may be used in some clinics, but the majority of modern fillers such as Juvéderm and  Restylane are made from hyaluronic acid. This compound has a unique ability to store moisture and restores lost volume.

2. Injections Offer Long Lasting Results

Just one treatment can make your skin feel more smooth and look more plump, for several months. The injections ability to reduce wrinkles and stimulate collagen production make it a popular choice for all ages. Result last from three to six months per session.

3. You Can’t Spot Quality Filler

Overly large lips are an obvious sign of filler, but properly injected filler is subtle. A person should look at you and assume you are well rested or maybe have been on vacation as opposed to noticing your filler. This is mostly due to improved techniques and quality ingredients.

4. Your Dr. Matters

Most people fear looking plastic due to the injectables, but the comprehensive look depends solely on the person performing the procedure. Make sure you check reviews and pictures of a Dr.’s past work before scheduling your fillers. Make sure that you exclusively use a licensed physician that has been fully trained to administer injectable treatments.

5. Wrinkle Prevention

Fillers can help smooth existing lines and prevent new ones from forming. There is no need to start fillers early to achieve good results, but there are benefits to starting young. Treatment benefits range from person to person, but starting earlier can reduce the overall quantity of treatments needed later in life.

6. Various Fillers, Various Results

There are different types of filler to target various areas, and they all have different results. Some hyaluronic acid injections are meant to thicken cheekbones, while others are more suited to lip augmentation. Some hyaluronic acid injections are solely formulated for reducing fine lines.

7. Bad Fillers Exist

Every so often you may not appreciate how the finished look of your filler comes out, in these cases an adjustment may be required. More filters can be added to balance out the work, or you can have it dissolved completely.

8. Mind the Pricing

Fillers are not overly expensive, but they are also not inexpensive. If a price seems too got to be true, you should ask yourself why. The price if a treatment tends to be based on how much is needed to achieve your desired look. Prices start at $250 per injection and can go up to $650 each.

9. Fillers Are Not for Everyone

Fillers are generally safe, but there are times that you should hold off on treatments. Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant and people who have sinus infections should wait until the conditions are resolved before obtaining fillers.

10. Expect Repeats

Hyaluronic acid fillers naturally break down after three to six months, so if you like your results you will end up going back for more. The good news is that if you don’t like the work, you don’t have to maintain it. On the other hand, if you do, you can visit your dermatologist twice a year for touch-ups.
