Facial fillers are given with a very fine needle to ensure comfort. Safe and FDA-approved, dermal fillers are very rarely associated with complications of any kind.*
Treatment usually only takes 15 to 30 minutes. The effects of facial filler injections are immediate, but they also often improve over time with the production of new collagen. Results typically last 6 months to 1 year, with repeated treatments often lasting longer. After treatment with dermal fillers, you should avoid the sun, alcohol, cold outdoor activities, and exercise for 24 hours.*
You may reapply your makeup and go home or return to work after you have had dermal filler injections. Most side effects such as mild redness or tenderness at the injection sites, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, itching, bruising, or discoloration are temporary (less than 5 days).*
*Disclaimer: With injectable dermal fillers and BOTOX®, there is no guarantee of specific results and the results may vary.
