Top 5 Questions To Ask Before Getting Dermal Fillers

Why should you choose dermal fillers for your deep wrinkles and fine lines over all the other facial treatments out there? Other facial treatments, while beneficial for overall skin improvement, may not be able to target deeper wrinkles as effectively and speedily as dermal fillers. As the name indicates, dermal fillers work to fill in and plump areas of your face and lips that have lost volume due to age or genetics.

Our med spa offers dermal fillers for men and women in the Houston area to improve their specific skin concerns. Those considering dermal fillers for the first time have plenty of questions about the treatment. Here are some common questions you should ask, too, before getting dermal fillers:

What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?

Dermal fillers can address deep wrinkles, fine lines, and a host of other skin concerns. You can easily improve unflattering skin issues such as acne scars as well as loss of volume in the lip area. They can also be used to fill in nasolabial folds, temples, and tear troughs.

Dermal fillers commonly contain beneficial ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and poly-L-lactic acid that promotes suppleness in the skin and increases collagen production.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

According to Harvard Medical School, dermal fillers are safe and effective as long as you have a well-trained and experienced professional performing the procedure. Your provider will skillfully administer the treatment, so you should only experience redness and mild bruising at the injection site. You should avoid going to an unqualified and inexperienced injector, as it may result in pain, swelling, and even disfiguration.

Can I Combine Dermal Fillers With Other Facial Treatments?

Dermal fillers combine well with facial treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, BroadBand Light (BBL®) skin rejuvenation, and microneedling. When getting dermal fillers to correct volume loss in the face, you can also opt to correct issues such as wrinkles and lines with BOTOX and pigmentation and scarring with laser skin rejuvenation. Combined treatments can give you a plump, radiant, and youthful-looking face and lips.

What Does Dermal Filler Recovery Look Like?

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, but you should expect some mild swelling and bruising after treatment. These issues typically subside quickly, and most people resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.
