Dermal Filler Recovery
Since this is a non-invasive procedure, you should require minimal downtown after your dermal filler injection(s). Most clients return to their daily routine immediately after leaving our office.
Following the injection(s), you should start to see results within the first 48 hours. The full effect of the procedure will be visible in 10-14 days.
What Are Common Side Effects of Dermal Fillers?
Most clients experience a “bee sting” sensation at the area of the dermal filler injection. Bruising and swelling may last for up to 5 days following treatment. If a cannula is used, the sensations at the injection site may be more pronounced than if the fillers are injected with a needle.
Other side effects of FDA-approved fillers may include:
- Allergic reactions (primarily to collagen)
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Depending on the type of dermal filler used and where it is injected, the results can last between 6 months and 5 years. It’s most common for clients to enjoy the results of their fillers for up to 1 year.
Your metabolism and activity levels can affect the longevity of dermal fillers, so please note that results do vary per person.
Are Dermal Fillers Only for Women?
Dermal fillers are available and common for use in both women and men. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 400,000 men get some form of injectable each year to alter their appearance.
