Since you are here, I can deduce that you are considering using dermal fillers to correct your face or other body parts. You heard something about it, you know that celebrities do it, and you might even have a friend, who had such treatments. However, you know nothing about this treatment, and don’t really want to discuss it with anyone and make it your little secret? Well, you’ve come to the right place to learn about the world of aesthetic treatments. I would like to discuss one of the most frequently asked questions that I get from my customers: “Are dermal fillers painful?”
Let me immediately put your mind to rest: there is no need to worry. All is going to be fine, but, of course, each and every case is different. What you need to do is get armed with sufficient knowledge, find a trustworthy aesthetician, order your filler and keep calm.
But let us begin from the start.
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Keep in mind that dermal fillers are legal beauty products, and there is no need to worry about the quality of any filler that you order from this beauty supply store. Every product I sell goes through pre-market testing in government regulatory agencies.
Most important thing is that dermal fillers help solve a variety of aesthetic issues and achieve considerable improvements in your looks including, but not limited to the following:
- Add fullness to the lips
- Smooth out wrinkles and folds
- Add the missing volume
- Correct facial asymmetry
- Lift corners of the lips
- Eliminate skin dryness
- Correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area
ADMINISTRATION OF DERMAL FILLERS
Dermal fillers administration is usually painless. However, pain, as well as discomfort, swelling, redness and itching are listed as possible side effects of dermal fillers. True, these post-procedure issues are rather rare, and you might be one of those filler users who experience none… or all of them. You can never know for sure.
Even if it turns out that your body does respond to the treatment with a few of the mentioned reactions, remember that most side effects of cosmetic fillers are mild and usually subside within 7 days or less.
During the treatment, your doctor uses a needle to introduce the product into your skin. Needles are quite thin, and this helps avoid pain or discomfort in most cases. Of course, people with a low pain limit are more likely to get the unpleasant sensations.
It’s important to keep in mind that immediately after the procedure, you will feel that the filler stretches your skin, and it’s a normal, so don’t panic. This effect can cause skin tingling and a pulsating sensation which lasts for about 20 minutes after the injection. If you notice any other sensations, speak to your doctor and ask how to eliminate them.
HOW TO MINIMIZE THE PAIN
So, are dermal fillers painful? It’s true that the administration of dermal fillers may cause pain and discomfort, especially when sensitive parts of your face are being treated. No one hides this information, and neither do I.
Pain is one of dermal fillers side effects, which is confirmed by both clinical trials and consumer reviews. But I am not here to go over the old news. I want to help you get a positive experience, and share the good news.
And the good news is: it IS possible to avoid or minimize the pain! But how?
Well, all you need is to opt for dermal fillers which contain Lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic. It significantly reduces the pain both during the injection and after the treatment. On Anna’s Cosmetics, you can buy dermal fillers with or without lidocaine, for example, Restylane or Juvederm.
Most likely you know yourself well by now and know your pain limit, so you can choose whether you need the lidocaine-containing fillers or the ones free from it.
Now, “why would anyone refuse buying the Lidocaine version when it totally rids them from pain?” you might ask. The answer is simple: “Because some people are allergic to Lidocaine.”
So, if you have finally decided to have the dermal filler treatment, you can either choose the product yourself or contact me, Anna, for a professional advice. Together, we will find the dermal fillers which suit you and your budget the best.
And last, but not least: I am committed to delivering the best possible customer service. I want you to be 100% confident that you will receive the best dermal fillers for your needs. Reasonable prices and fast delivery will not leave anyone indifferent.
