Frequently Asked Questions about dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are gels with a hyaluronic acid base (like a sugar gel), which can be injected into certain areas of your face to either correct wrinkles, fill in deep scars or non-surgically change the shape of certain parts of your face. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the body, and over time the dermal filler breaks down via normal body processes.

Compared to anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers allow greater precision in wrinkle correction, and can more effectively treat medium to deep wrinkles. They do not cause any loss of ability to contract your facial muscles, Compared to other methods of changing the shape of your face (such as lips or cheeks), dermal fillers offer the advantage of being non-permanent and creating a generally more youthful look.

The benefits of using dermal fillers include:

  • Fillers can reliably treat wrinkles at depths that other methods cannot.
  • They are biocompatible and rarely cause reactions.
  • The fillers can be dissolved by injection if there are any problems.
  • They are non-invasive compared to surgical solutions.

Ordinary side effects following dermal filler injections include swelling, redness, bruising and mild asymmetry as the inflammation settles down.

A single treatment every 9-12 months is needed.

The usual procedure for dermal fillers is: • You will speak with the doctor and nurse about your background and medical history at your initial consultation. • Your doctor and nurse will formulate a treatment plan, which may include other therapies, if appropriate. At your dermal filler appointment: • The dermal filler product used by Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurses contains a local anaesthetic that makes the injection comfortable. • The area to be injected is marked out the dermal fillers are injected. • The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes in total, depending on the area that is being treated.

Local anaesthesia can be used if necessary, although it is not needed for all patients. Without local anaesthesia, patients generally say there is little to no discomfort with dermal filler injections.

Much of the difference you see after your initial dermal filler injection will be due to swelling; you should see the ‘real’ results after about three days. You will be able to return to work.

The physician injects the dermal filler solution into predetermined areas using a very fine needle. Injections for cosmetic fillers typically take just a few minutes to complete, depending on the number of areas to be treated. Our injection specialists apply topical anaesthetic to ensure a comfortable experience, and few patients experience side effects beyond mild swelling or bruising that disappears in a few days.

The amount of dermal filler required will vary based on the area to be treated, the severity of the volume loss and the desired results.

Results are temporary, typically lasting six to 24 months. Treatment must be repeated to maintain the effect. Treatment in the lip area does not last as long. Usually, around three to six months before additional procedures are needed.
