Dermal fillers are injectable products that add volume to the skin and smooth out wrinkles and lines.

What are the side effects of dermal fillers?
Common side effects of dermal fillers can include:
Swelling: This is the most common side effect and usually goes away within a few days.
Bruising: Dermal fillers may cause bruising at the injection site, which usually disappears within a week or two.
Pain or discomfort: Some people may experience pain or discomfort at the injection site, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
Redness or irritation: The skin around the injection site may become red or irritated, but this should resolve within a few days.
Lumps or bumps: It is possible for dermal fillers to cause lumps or bumps under the skin, but these can usually be massaged or treated with a hyaluronidase injection to dissolve the filler.
Allergic reactions: Rarely, people may have an allergic reaction to the ingredients in dermal fillers, which can cause symptoms such as hives, rash, itching, or difficulty breathing.
What happens when you stop getting fillers?
If you stop getting dermal fillers, the effects of the treatment will gradually fade over time as the product is absorbed by the body. The rate at which the effects fade will depend on the specific product and the individual’s skin type and lifestyle. In general, the effects of dermal fillers will last longer in people with thicker, more elastic skin and in those who avoid sun exposure and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
It is important to note that dermal fillers are not a permanent solution for improving the appearance of the skin. If you wish to maintain the effects of dermal fillers, it will be necessary to continue receiving treatment on a regular basis. It is important to discuss your treatment plan and goals with a qualified and experienced healthcare professional to determine the best course of action for you.
What to avoid after fillers?
After getting dermal fillers, it is important to avoid certain activities in order to help the treatment area heal properly and minimize the risk of side effects. Here are some general guidelines to follow after getting dermal fillers:
Avoid strenuous activities: It is important to avoid activities that increase blood flow to the treated area, such as exercise and heavy lifting, for at least 24-48 hours after treatment. This will help reduce swelling and minimize the risk of bruising.
Avoid heat and sun exposure: Exposure to heat, such as hot showers and saunas, can cause swelling and irritation to the treated area. It is also important to protect your skin from the sun by wearing a hat and sunscreen with a high SPF.
Avoid touching or massaging the treated area: It is important to avoid touching or massaging the treated area for at least 24 hours after treatment. This can help prevent the filler from moving or spreading to unintended areas.
Avoid alcohol and blood thinners: It is recommended to avoid alcohol and blood thinners, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, for at least 24 hours after treatment. These substances can increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.
It is also important to follow any specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider after getting dermal fillers. If you experience any unusual symptoms or side effects after treatment, be sure to contact your healthcare provider for further evaluation and guidance.
At what age should you start getting fillers?
There is no specific age at which people should start getting dermal fillers. The decision to get dermal fillers is a personal one that should be based on an individual’s goals and concerns. Some people may choose to get dermal fillers in their 20s or 30s to help prevent the signs of aging, while others may not be interested in getting dermal fillers until they are in their 50s or 60s.
What are fillers made with?
They are made with a variety of different ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.
- Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found in the skin, joints, and eyes. It is a popular ingredient in dermal fillers because it has the ability to hold onto water, which helps to plump up the skin and smooth out wrinkles.
- Calcium hydroxylapatite is a synthetic substance that is similar to the minerals found in bones and teeth. It is often used in dermal fillers to add volume to the skin and improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic polymer that is biocompatible with the human body. It is often used in dermal fillers to stimulate collagen production, which helps to improve the texture and elasticity of the skin.
It is important to note that dermal fillers are medical products that should only be administered by qualified healthcare professionals.
