This blog post compiles some of the most frequently asked questions about treatment with facial fillers so that you can get all the advice you need before giving us a call to schedule.
Specifics of Treatment with Dermal Fillers
Which dermal filler is right for me?
Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville offers several types of dermal fillers to accommodate different patients’ needs. Restylane, Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Radiesse are all available at our practice. They’re appropriate for different areas of the face and different levels of subtlety.
Which facial lines will dermal fillers smooth?
Dermal fillers typically tackle skin on the lower half of the face. The most commonly treated lines are laugh lines, vertical lip lines, and other lines around the nose and mouth. Dermal fillers can also be used to quietly enhance your lips.
Will treatment hurt?
We will numb the area slightly before you receive dermal fillers to help with any discomfort. Though you will feel the pinch of the injections, treatment will not be very painful during or afterwards.
How long before I see results?
You will see immediate results after treatment. The results will settle slightly in the 3-5 days after treatment, then showing their final effect.
How long will the results last?
Though this depends on the dermal filler, the area treated, and the amount of filler injected, your results will last anywhere from 9 months to over one year. We’ll be able to give you a more specific estimate at the time of your treatment.
