How are facial fillers administered?
Prevelle Silk is the first filler to have its own numbing agent within the compound, thus reducing discomfort. For most other fillers, a numbing agent may be used to minimize discomfort during the treatment. Your physician will inject the selected filler into the targeted areas that were discussed during your initial consultation. Results are typically noticeable immediately, and can last from four to nine months, depending on the filler that was administered. Patients may return for touch-up injections in order maintain their new, smooth facial appearance. Our physician at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery can discuss your facial filler options with you during a consultation.
After the treatment:
While the effects are long-lasting, patients should note that they are not permanent. This minimally invasive facial procedure allows the patient to return to daily activities right after the treatment. No downtime is necessary. Patients must be sure to follow all of their physician’s instructions in order avoid any complications.
