What to Expect From Your Dermal Filler Appointment

We’ll start by cleaning the injection site. We may use a topical numbing agent before your injection, depending on what type of fillers we’re using. Some types of fillers also contain mild anesthetics, which helps alleviate discomfort.

Next, we’ll carefully and strategically inject the filler under your skin to give you the best results. Most patients see an immediate difference.

Some patients experience mild swelling or slight bruising, itching, pain, discoloration, and tenderness after treatment, but it typically subsides after a few days. If your lips were injected, the swelling may be more significant. 

Please ensure you are guarding yourself against infection by keeping your skin clean for at least 48 hours. You may be able to apply makeup after 12 hours, but please do so gently. Please avoid any excessive skin rubbing or skin manipulation following the treatment.

After 24 hours, you will be able to exercise normally and consume alcohol.

Please avoid exposure to hot and cold environments and avoid direct sun exposure for at least 2 weeks. If you have noticed any swelling or redness persisting more than 1 week following your treatment, please contact our office.

We will also book a follow-up appointment to assess the outcome of the treatment and to take personal photos. We can provide any additional injections for an additional fee.

Most fillers are designed to dissolve naturally over time. Result longevity varies depending on the type of filler we used, where it was injected, how deep it was injected, and your body’s natural response.

However, most “temporary” fillers last somewhere between 6-9 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Young skin is smooth and elastic because it contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid (HA). As we age, the amount of HA in the skin gradually diminishes. As a result, the skin becomes dryer, thinner and more wrinkled. The filler products which are used at our clinic are a long‐lasting but not permanent synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. The gel mimics the naturally occurring substance by adding volume to the skin. When fillers are injected under the surface of the skin, the gel adds volume and smoothes facial lines and folds.

Different fillers are used for specific areas of the face. For instance, the product which will be best suited to improve the cheeks is not quite the same as the ones that are used for more superficial lines or the lips. Fillers are often used to correct the “nasolabial folds” which occur from the wing of the nose to the angle of the mouth, and “marionette lines” which are furrows just below and to the side of the mouth. The contours of the lips can be enhanced to the desired level by accentuating the vermillion border and giving the lips more volume. Cheeks that have become flattened by the ageing process can be lifted beautifully using filler. Very deep wrinkles and some types of acne scars cannot typically be treated with this material. Very superficial wrinkles are often difficult to correct.

The treatment typically takes about 15‐45 minutes, depending on the area treated and the number of syringes used. The filler is injected with a very thin needle into the skin. Some results are visible immediately.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are a natural material, so they dissolve with time. In the event that you feel uncertain about the desired result or there is an unexpected complication, there is a medication called hyaluronidase, which can be of assistance.

Yes. If you are on any medication that causes bruising, you should stop taking them 3‐5 days before treatment. This may include ASA (aspirin), Advil, Motrin and other prescription medication. Please check with your injector and/or your family doctor prior to discontinuing any medication that is prescribed for you. Also, some vitamins such as Vitamin E, Gingko, Garlic, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, and Omega 3’s can increase bruising.

A small amount is injected directly into the skin to add volume and restore hydration. HA is naturally integrated into the tissue and allows for the free passage of important nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones. The product will also bind water, which adds to the filling effect.

Pain is very individualized and dependent on one’s tolerance for pain. Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic cream can be applied, which takes about 20 minutes to take effect. Or, in some instances, pain can be improved through the use of a nerve block similar to what you may have experienced at the dentist’s office.

No. People with excess facial skin or people who want a major resurfacing of the skin cannot be corrected with fillers alone.

No, the hyaluronic acids which are available in Canada are almost identical to that already present in the body. Since it is not made from animals, there is no risk of transmitting diseases from animals or eliciting allergic reactions to common foods such as eggs, meat or chicken.

The filler dissolves naturally with time, and without touch‐ups will eventually totally disappear from the body. How long a hyaluronic acid filler treatment lasts is very individual, depending on many factors such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle, age and metabolism. However, for the majority, about 50‐80% of the effect remains after six months. The injected material will gradually disappear until your skin looks just as it did before the treatment. You can replenish the filler whenever you feel the need or ask your provider his/her opinion.
