Dermal fillers and botox are not the same.

The first and most important misunderstanding to clear about Dermal filler is – “Dermal filler are not the same as Botox”. Where Botox freezes muscles to diminish wrinkles, fillers smoothen skin by filling wrinkles.

Dermal fillers are small gel injections, that fill the wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. derma fillers can be injected in different parts of the face like around eye, mouth, jawline, and cheeks. Lip fillers are also used to smooth in lips, and directly administered into the lip tissue.

Fillers can be used to treat already present lines as well as to prevent one from forming

Although there is no requirement for fillers before you even see your first wrinkle, people are beginning treatments younger than ever before. As per experts starting relatively young may have benefits & bonuses. The majority believe playing the game of prevention than the game of correction.

Dermal fillers will last between six and 18 months

Many have questions as to how long dermal filler lasts? The answer is 6 to 18 months, but many times lasting of the derma filler depends on the way an individual body reacts and also on how well it suits the purpose. Experienced dermatologists and dermal filler practitioner should be able to guide you on what’s right for you.

Dermal fillers are popular because of their safety.

Dermal fillers are extremely safe and there have been nearly no reports of allergic reaction or infection. Injecting dermal filler should be strictly carried out by a healthcare professional with proper training to rule out even the minor possibility of a reaction. Dermal filler side effects can be easily confused with the reaction, so before undergoing treatment one should understand the difference between them. 

Temporary side effects that are quite common after facial injections include inflammation, redness, and tenderness at the location. There may be a little bit of discomfort, redness, and bruising after the procedure, which is completely normal. These side effects are usually mild to moderate and ordinarily, go shortly or a few days after injection.

If you’re unhappy with the way filler looks in most cases, it can be adjusted.

Nothing is perfect, so sometimes bad filler can happen, but it can be rectified and you don’t have to carry it around in bad shape. If you are not satisfied or somehow don’t like the way filler looks, in most cases you can get them corrected as per your wish. A dermatologist can bring balance by injecting additional filler or it can be dissolved altogether.

Very Strictly avoid getting dermal filler treatment at a beauty spa or salon

Never ever consider having any sort of injectable procedure at a beauty spa, salon, or any healthcare professional to get your filler fix. The face has several underlying delicate structures like nerves, vessels, etc. If the person administering fillers is inexperienced and not accurate, there’s a risk of injury, infection, artery occlusion – commencing to tissue death, and scarring. Hence it’s necessary to see a certified medical professional who understands the anatomy of the face and knows the areas to avoid.
