Fillers are one way to truly get a lot of your youthful appearance back. Dermal filler is soft tissue filler injected into the skin to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns thereby restoring a smoother appearance. Injectables can be cosmetic or facial and are purely non surgical procedures. Treatment should be done in a medical setting with sterile instruments. Based upon your cosmetic requirement the doctor will examine and decide on the type of treatment to be given. For weeks maintain your skin in good and healthy condition before the commencement of the treatment.
On the day of Filler treatment, the injection sites on the body will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent and if necessary local anaesthetic cream/injection will be given to the patient. The Doctor then injects the filler in a series of small injections and gently massages the area. After the procedure ice/cold packs/creams/medicines are given to the patient to reduce swelling and discomfort. Although the area may feel a bit tender for a couple of days, it is usually not painful and doesn’t require any medication.
Types of Fillers:
Inject able Fillers are classified in two categories:
1. Temporary: Hyaluronic acid, fat transfer etc.
2. Semi permanent or permanent (biosynthetic polymers / Collagen): Radiesse, sculptra, at refill, etc.
The treatment time can vary from a few minutes to an hour depending on the area to be treated. Results depend on the type of filler used; the skill of the doctor; and health, skin and tolerance of the patient.
