Frequently Asked Questions
Are dermal filler injections painful?
Dermal filler injections can vary in terms of how much discomfort they cause. However, for most individuals, the procedure is generally well-tolerated and not excessively painful. The use of fine needles or cannulas helps minimise any potential discomfort. Additionally, a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied beforehand to numb the skin and make the experience more comfortable.
While you may still feel some temporary sensations like a slight pinch, stinging, or pressure during the injection, these usually subside quickly. It’s important to communicate openly with your healthcare professional or aesthetician about your concerns regarding pain management. They can provide specific guidance and ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
Are there risks or side effects?
Like any medical procedure, dermal filler injections carry some risks and potential side effects. It’s important to be aware of these before undergoing the treatment. Here are some common risks and side effects associated with dermal fillers:
- Temporary reactions: Redness, swelling, bruising, itching, or tenderness at the injection site are common but usually resolve within a week.
- Allergic reactions: Rare, but possible. Symptoms may include itching, rash, hives, difficulty breathing, or swelling. Inform your healthcare professional if you have allergies.
- Infection: Uncommon, but there is a small risk. Sterile techniques minimise this risk.
- Lumps or nodules: Occasionally, small lumps or nodules may form under the skin and require additional treatment.
- Vascular complications: Rare, but improper injection techniques can cause tissue damage, vision changes, or stroke.
Choose a qualified professional to perform the procedure and discuss potential risks and side effects with them.
What areas benefit the most from dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can benefit several areas, including the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, under-eye hollows, jawline/chin, and between the eyes. Fillers can add volume to the lips, restore cheek fullness, soften smile lines, address marionette lines, reduce under-eye hollows, enhance the jawline/chin, and soften vertical lines between the eyebrows.
It’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional or aesthetician who can assess your specific concerns and provide personalised recommendations on the areas that can benefit most from dermal fillers. They can help create a customised treatment plan to achieve your desired aesthetic goals.
