Dermal Filler Procedure & Results
Before the injection, we will clean the treatment area, and you may be given a topical anesthetic to numb the area. Many dermal fillers also contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic intended to help minimize discomfort during and after your treatment. Our expert injector will strategically inject a precise amount of filler beneath the skin.
Depending on the filler and facial site, you should notice results immediately after receiving filler injections. You may experience temporary mild bruising and swelling that should subside over the next few days. With no downtime, you can go back to your normal activities right after treatment, but you may need to take the day off from exercise or other strenuous activities.
These results from HA fillers generally last from six to eighteen months, with lip injections wearing out faster than nasolabial fold injections. The body does not absorb synthetic fillers, so the results last several years.
