Are you considering getting facial fillers? You may be wondering what to expect during the process. While you won't feel the actual injections, you will hear a few things as the filler is placed under the skin near the facial bones. You may also experience some sensitivity and swelling after treatment. To help you prepare, here's a look at what to expect when getting dermal filler injections.
When the needle pierces the skin, you'll hear a popping sound. This is normal and nothing to worry about. To help make the process more comfortable, an anesthetic cream is applied before the injections. This helps to numb the area and reduce any discomfort.
After the injections, you may feel fuller than usual due to the presence of the filler and swelling. Sensitivity is also common, especially when the cheeks and temples have been injected. You may also experience some redness and bruising in the treated area. Dermal fillers are used to add volume to areas of the face, such as creating sharper cheekbones, more defined jaw lines, and straighter noses.
They are also used to stimulate collagen and elastin production in order to rejuvenate the skin. Fillers are not considered a medical substance in the UK, so there are few restrictions or regulations on their use. When it comes to lip fillers, there are three key requirements to consider. First, make sure you choose an experienced professional who is familiar with lip injections.
Second, be sure to ask about any potential side effects or risks associated with lip fillers. Finally, make sure you understand how long your results will last. Fillers that are injected into highly mobile areas of the face, such as the lips, tend to disappear more quickly than fillers given elsewhere. It's normal for some swelling and possibly even some bruising for a few days after facial fillers, but you'll usually see an immediate difference in the volume and shape of the treated area.
With proper care and maintenance, your results can last for up to a year or more.
