What to expect after Dermal Filler


When to choose fillers

Recently, dermal fillers have seen a huge success for their long-lasting effects that can take off years from your appearance.


Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid as the base of the injection formula, a protein that’s naturally found in our bodies—it moisturizes and revitalizes the skin’s surface. When injected into the skin, it replaces volume that was lost over time.

Dermal fillers are an ideal choice for a number of problem areas. Unlike botulinum toxin injections like Botox, which only paralyzes the injected muscles, dermal fillers work nearly anywhere you’ve lost volume in your skin.


Dermal fillers can add support and definition to your skin in places where aging effects it the most, like: 

  • Deep lines and wrinkles on your face
  • Areas that lose contour over time like your lips and cheeks

What Is it Like Getting Injected with Dermal Filler?

After being well numbed, the dermal fillers are injected with a very fine needle under your skin. Each dermal filler have their own unique qualities, made just for specific treatment areas. Mild bruising and swelling around the injection sites is common in most patients.

Other issues you may notice immediately after injection include:

  • Overfilled appearance
  • Redness
  • Lumpiness at an injection site

These issues should subsided in just a few days.

Immediate Results

You will see an immediate difference in your appearance after the injection treatment. Although, it will take a few days to weeks for the final results to be present as swelling goes down.
