Making Your Dermal Filler Appointment? Know What to Expect.
Congratulations on finally deciding to take the step of trying dermal fillers. As an effective treatment for skin rejuvenation, fillers are an instant way to bring back youthfulness to your face. Particularly, it helps plump hollow areas, including the areas of your face where fine lines and wrinkles have surfaced.
Here’s what you can expect during your dermal filler appointment.
Assessing your condition
During your consultation, Dr. Carter will carefully evaluate your skin condition and facial appearance. This will include your skin tone, as well as the features of your face that would look better augmented. Such areas will be marked appropriately to serve as guide during the actual treatment later on.
Prepping your skin
Before administering the injections, the involved area will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. An anesthetic ointment or local anesthesia may be administered to keep you as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.
Starting the injections
Each injection only takes a few moments for every treatment site. The entire procedure usually takes 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of the area or condition being treated.
Going through recovery
Once the necessary filler has been administered, your skin is cleansed again to remove any markings. While you may feel some discomfort, swelling, or tenderness in the area, ice packs and pain medications usually do the trick.
