Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers have come a long way from the standard wrinkle filling benefits they originally offered. Now, in addition to smoothing out facial creases, these formulations offer the following benefits:

  1. Restore youthful facial volume to areas like the cheeks and under the eyes
  2. Address mild skin laxity in the mid face and along the jawline
  3. Plump and define thin lips
  4. Smooth out shallow scarring from acne or chicken pox
  5. Correct minor asymmetries to the nose, eyes or cheeks

Preparation

In order to reduce the amount of bruising and swelling at the injection site, American Aesthetic Medical Center makes the following recommendations about how to prepare for fillers:

  1. Avoid blood thinning over-the-counter medications such as aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen, and Aleve.
  2. Avoid topical products such as Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinol, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, or any “anti-aging” products.
  3. Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or using hair removal cream on the area to be treated.
  4. Do not drink alcoholic beverages 24 hours prior.

Post op Care

Post treatment care plays an important role in getting the desired results after getting the fillers. Here is a list of most important care instructions:

  1. Immediately after the treatment, the most common reported side effects are temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within two or three days. Cold compresses may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling. If the inconvenience continues beyond two or three days or if other reactions occur, please contact your physician.
  2. Avoid touching the area within six hours following treatment. After that, the area can be gently washed with soap and water
  3. Until the initial redness and swelling have resolved, avoid exposure of the treated area to intense heat (sun lamp or sun bathing)
  4. If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another recurrence. Speak to your physician about medications that may minimize a recurrence.
  5. Avoid exercise and alcohol for 6 hours post-treatment
  6. Evidence shows that having a follow-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect. Please be sure to consult your physician about recommendations for touch-up or follow-up treatments.
