FAQ

Is there any downtime?

You may notice some redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising at the injection site following treatment. However it’s typically mild enough to return to work immediately after. We’ll also help with you products and make-up cover up to get you back to your regular routine as quickly as possible.

When will I see results?

You’ll see results from dermal filler immediately!

How long will results last?

The dermal fillers we use, which are hyaluronic acid based, typically last from 6 to 12 months, and sometimes up to 24 months depending on the type of filler.

Do I really need filler every 6 to 18 months?

This is completely up to you! Although hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers have some lasting effects from the collagen they stimulate, if you choose not to continue filler treatments your skin will eventually go back to how it was prior to treatment.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid, or HA for short, is a substance that occurs naturally in your body. One of its primary purposes is to hydrate and lubricate tissue. This ability to hold water makes it excellent at hydrating and plumping tissue, which is why it has become such a popular ingredient in skin care!

Does it hurt?

Filler treatments are a little uncomfortable and some areas are more sensitive than others. However, we do everything we can to keep you comfortable. We apply topical numbing cream before each filler treatment, and the dermal fillers we use contain lidocaine that numbs locally as the filler is being injected.

Will I look fake or unnatural?

When filler is administered in the right amounts by trained and skilled providers, it results in a subtle improvement to your appearance. Your friends and family may notice that you look better, but they won’t know your secret unless you tell them!

Are there any side effects?

Another reason that hyaluronic acid based fillers are so great is that they are incredibly safe since the substance already occurs naturally in your body. However, there are still some side effects, which can include swelling, bruising, and edema. We provide ice packs immediately after the treatment to help reduce swelling. We’ll also provide you with a list of pre treatment tips and precautions that will help reduce any side effects.

Can I get filler if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

Dermal filler injections should not be used in pregnancy or when breastfeeding.

How is Dermal Filler different from Botox?

The first way dermal fillers differ from Botox is how they work: dermal fillers add volume to plump, lift, and fill in skin that has been depleted, whereas neuromodulators like Botox reduce the muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form.

The other difference is the type of wrinkle they correct. Fillers are best suited for static wrinkles that are visible even when your face is at rest. Botox, on the other hand, addresses dynamic wrinkles that form when you make facial expressions.

Pre-Treatment Tips

  • Schedule your treatment at least two weeks prior to events. This gives the Botox time to reach full effect and ensures any redness, swelling or bruising has time to heal.
  • Discontinuing use of aspirin, ibuprofen and other anti-inflammatories for at least 3 days, preferably a week, prior to your appointment will reduce the risk of redness and bruising. Please consult with your primary physician prior to discontinuing any medications.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. This will significantly reduce the risk of bruising and swelling.
  • If prone to bruising, starting Arnica supplements at least 2 days prior to injections may help reduce bruising.
  • Let the provider know if you have a history of cold sores. An antiviral may be prescribed.
  • Avoid microneedling, IPL photofacials and laser procedures for 7 days prior to treatment.

Post Treatment Tips

  • Do NOT massage or apply pressure on the injected area for 48 hours.
  • Avoid rigorous exercise activities, excessive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages on the day of treatment.
  • No facials or saunas for one week after treatment.
  • Try to limit sleeping on your stomach for a few days after treatment.
  • You may gently wash with soap & water.
  • You may apply make-up (preferably pharmaceutical grade mineral makeup) as usual.
  • Drink plenty of water for the next few days. It helps improve the outcome of the Filler.
  • There may be some mild swelling. You may apply ice packs for 15 minutes every 1 hour, if needed.
  • There may be some bruising. It will resolve like any other bruise in about a week. You may apply Arnica cream to help with healing.
  • We recommend Tylenol if you have any discomfort. Avoid aspirin as it may worsen bruising.
  • It is normal to feel firmness or small lumps at the injection site at first. These will soften over time.
  • If there is a visible lump, after 48 hours, you may gently massage to smooth it out.

Dermal Filler: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know

First a refresher. Dermal fillers are often confused with Botox, so, let’s clear that up. Botox basically relaxes the nerves in your face that cause the muscles to contract. As you age, our repeated expressions, smiles, frowns, knitted brows, and squinted eyes, cause wrinkles to develop. Botox relaxes the muscles underneath the wrinkles and, voila, ...
