Thanks to advanced techniques and technology, facial filler is safer, more popular, and more effective than ever – with incredible results you won’t believe! That is, if it’s done by certified professionals, of course.

Once you’ve determined that you’re dealing with trained professionals, here are 5 other questions you should ask before getting facial fillers.

How do facial fillers work?

Facial fillers are usually made with hyaluronic acid, which is a substance your body already contains! Fillers are injected into precise points of the face to help fight signs of aging like volume loss, fine lines, and wrinkles. Facial fillers literally fill in lines and other areas with volume loss to restore your look to your liking or give you volume where you’ve always wanted it.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

You’ll want to discuss your candidacy for facial fillers before getting facial fillers.

Some of the things your provider may ask to determine if you’d be a good candidate for facial filler include:

Do you smoke?
Are you generally healthy?
Do you have any allergies?
Are you committed to taking good care of your skin?

What can facial filler treat?

Facial fillers are used for addressing a variety of complaints patients may have about their skin.

Here are some of them:

Forehead Lines
Eyebrows
Frown Lines
Crow’s Feet
Nasolabial Folds
Vertical Lip Lines
Lips
Skin Depression
Marionette Lines

How many treatments will I need?

Many patients find their fillers last between six months and two years! Over time, your body naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid the fillers are made of. Once it has broken down, you may decide to get facial fillers again to maintain your look.

When will I see results?

Facial filler is considered to have instant results! Some patients have minor bruising and swelling. In that case, within the 7-10 days it takes for that to go down, you’ll see your final and optimal result.
