THE PROS AND CONS OF DERMAL FILLERS

The pros and cons of dermal fillers

Not sure whether you should try dermal fillers? Read this one-page cheat sheet. I, Anna, have compiled a list of pros and cons of dermal fillers, which should help you make the right decision.

Let’s start with reviewing the advantages of fillers, because this is what interests us most.

FIRST, INJECTABLE FILLERS REALLY WORK

We do have the possibility to preserve our youth. All we need to do is to carefully watch and maintain our own health. With age, when this is not enough, you can opt for soft-tissue fillers.

If you want your looks to resemble your inner youth and beauty, it’s a great reason to take a closer look at dermal fillers, because they can help you achieve the following aesthetic goals:

  • Add volume to the face, lips or other parts of the body
  • Fill in wrinkles, lines and acne scars
  • Correct the asymmetry of the facial contour
  • Get a perfectly young and fresh complexion.

Dermal fillers are no longer the latest thing unknown to humankind. I, as well as hundreds of thousands of women, believe that injectable cosmetic fillers are a routine treatment, akin to hair dyeing or teeth whitening.

SECOND, DERMAL FILLERS ARE A PERFECT NON-SURGICAL SOLUTION

Forget about cosmetic surgery, it was fashionable in the last century. Skin rejuvenation without a scalpel and a long recovery period – this is what you get with modern wrinkle fillers. You don’t need a surgical intervention, hence the risk level is considerably lower.

You may only need local anesthesia to reduce discomfort and that’s it. For these purposes, dermatologists use Lidocaine HCL, which is often the second active ingredient of dermal fillers.

THIRD, MINIMUM TIME FOR AESTHETIC TREATMENT

Non-invasive anti-aging treatments don’t take much time. As a rule, the entire injecting procedure takes as little as 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the individual and areas treated.

After the treatment, you can immediately go home or back to work, i.e. return to your usual activities without even taking a day off to recover.

No major lifestyle changes are required. Although, if you had butt augmentation or a treatment for the decollete area, I would recommend you to abstain from gym on that very day and, of course, avoid intense exercises after any filler treatment.

FOURTH, DURATION OF RESULTS

In most cases, you get immediate results, however, it takes about 2 to 5 days to see the final result. As for the duration of the filler results, it varies from a few months to a year, or two. It depends on how your body responds to treatment and what type of dermal filler is used.

The area treated is also important. It is believed that lip fillers wear out a little faster than deep wrinkle fillers. Since dermal fillers are non-permanent, the effect gradually decreases with time.

To maintain the aesthetic result, schedule top-up treatments with your doctor and don’t forget to order your fillers on time. It’s simple, fast and very convenient to place an order on Anna’s Cosmetics.

FIFTH, LOW COST

Cosmetic fillers have been available on the market for a long time. Considering that the competition between manufacturers is very high, the price of dermal fillers is constantly decreasing.

If it seems to you that the cost of aesthetic treatments is very high, compare it with the cost of plastic surgery, and you will immediately see the difference.

In my online store, you can find dermal fillers at prices starting from $140.00. And I am talking about top aesthetic solutions, which are popular worldwide, including such brands, as:

Read on to learn about the disadvantages of dermal fillers.

FIRST OF ALL, DERMAL FILLER MAY CAUSE PAIN

Yes, the filler treatments may cause some side effects. After all, the product is injected in the skin, albeit in small quantities.

If you want to rejuvenate your face and body, you need to be aware of possible adverse reactions that occur at the injection site, such as:

  • pain
  • discomfort
  • swelling
  • tenderness
  • itching
  • bruising.

Great news is side effects are not severe, and they subside relatively fast. Many dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to reduce any painful sensations that you may have.

SECONDLY, NOT THE RESULTS YOU EXPECTED

Some people complain of dermal fillers, however, the majority is satisfied. People say that the result is either not visible, or they’ve had injected too much filler.

If the result is not visible, you can always add more filler later. This is a normal practice in aesthetic dermatology, although it comes at extra charge.

If you get injected excessive amount of filler and end up with an aesthetically undesirable result such as, for example, “trout pout”, your doctor can use a special substance to dissolve the filler. Results of aesthetic treatments with the use of formulations based on hyaluronic acid or hydroxylapatite can be reversed using hyaluronidase or sodium thiosulfate, respectively. These substances speed up the natural biodegradation of dermal fillers.

Either way, I, Anna, strongly advise you to choose professional aestheticians and have a detailed discussion about your wishes BEFORE the treatment. You should never be shy to ask the doctor for a portfolio of his previous work or search for his clients, just to make sure that he indeed is a professional.

The results of treatment strongly depend on your dermatologist’s experience and qualifications. In addition, your doctor should warn you about possible side effects of dermal filler treatment, risks associated with it, as well as ways to prevent them.

If your doctor is not the talking kind or doesn’t provide sufficient information, you can ask me, Anna, by contacting me via the chat or contact form. I am happy to help in making a correct filler choice and provide all information that you need.
