The best way to have a clear understanding of what each filler can do for you is by discussing these treatment options during a consultation. It is also important to look at injectable facial filler before and after photos in order to develop realistic expectations.
The Treatment Process
For at least two weeks before your treatment session, make sure to avoid taking NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). These can cause increased bruising in the treatment region after treatment.
We are now scheduling filler appointments. The dermal filler injection process is quite safe and convenient – treatments typically take only a half hour to perform. Many fillers contain a local anesthetic called lidocaine to numb the region, and a topical numbing cream may also be available.
At the start of the process, the targeted regions are marked. These serve as a guide for the injector. After the areas are marked, the injections are delivered with great care and precision.
We have adopted a safe filler injection protocol during the COVID-19 pandemic. Besides screening, masks, and cleaning, we have added breathable HEPA filters, room HEPA filters, and air suction devices to do this safely. Dr. Van Raalte has his special injection mask as well.
Aftercare Following Treatment
There is no required recovery or downtime following a dermal filler treatment session. This is because the procedure, unlike surgery, does not involve any scalpels or incisions.
Once the injections have been performed, patients can return to their daily schedules. It will be necessary to avoid prolonged sun exposure for a time.
Fillers gradually safely dissolve in the tissues over the course of several months. Each filler lasts for a different amount of time in the skin, and after this time, it will be necessary to come in for a maintenance treatment.
How Much Do Injectable Facial Fillers Cost?
There is no one fixed price for a dermal filler treatment. Injectable facial filler cost is dependent on the type of filler chosen, the number of areas targeted, and the location of each region. Financing may be available through CareCredit.
