Dermal fillers have skyrocketed in popularity in last couple of years. We can attribute it to Kylie Jenner and the thousands of Instagram and Youtube influencers, but the demand for them is only expected to keep rising. Fillers are used to enhance lips, contour jaw lines, lift eye bags, reshape noses and so much more.
However, if you’ve never had any type of dermal filler, you might have a few queries about the procedure; here are 4 questions you absolutely should ask during your dermal fillers consultation:
- What brand of fillers will be used?
Juvederm & Restylane are the most popular, top-quality brands of fillers. While you might see several ads for cheap fillers, don’t buy into them without knowing the brand of fillers that will be injected.
- What kind of results can I expect?
Be sure to communicate exactly what you’re expecting from the treatment to prevent a botched job. Ask your doctor what you should expect both after the treatment and several months down the line.
- What are the risks and side effects?
Most people receive dermal fillers without experiencing any side effects, but there are some that you should be aware of. Pain and swelling might occur during the first few days but this should go away without further treatment. If you want to reduce the risk of developing any side effects, then it’s important to choose a credible clinic with a license.
- How long has the doctor been in the industry?
Be selective about your cosmetic surgeon, choosing one with relevant qualifications and a lot of experience; ask to see pictures of their previous work. Read reviews online and get an account of the extent of their work.
- How long will the fillers last?
The best thing about dermal fillers is that they are incredibly versatile and how long they last can depend on where you inject them as well as the substance you choose to use. However, most dermal fillers are only temporary and will last between 6-18 months before top-up fillers are required. Be sure to ask your doctor exactly how long your fillers will last and if you’d require any follow ups.
