FAQ’S on Fillers

What are fillers and how do they help?

Fillers are Hyaluronic based which is a natural ground substance in the human body. They are used to fill any defects, correct the volume loss due to aging, improve wrinkles and folds, help in lifting of tissues which have become lax and have sagged with age.

Are fillers same for all areas of the face or are they different? Are fillers US FDA approved?

No fillers are of different categories and depending on the tissue requirements your surgeon during the pre-procedure consultation explains the need for different fillers at different areas of the face. For example, cheeks require fillers of high density and consistency whereas the periorbital areas (around the eyes) requires much fine filler as the skin is too thin there. We use only US FDA approved fillers as they are much more smoother and give good lasting results.

How long will my filler last, how do I know to come about the same?

Well as described in answer no. 2, as different fillers have different density and consistency, they have different life span too. As the cheek filler is the most dense and heavy it last for 18 months-2 years and whereas the periorbital one lasts only for 10-12 months. All these concerns shall be discussed and addressed by Dr. Sukhbir during the initial consultation. It’s a very safe, effective and quick procedure with almost immediate results.

Will I appreciate any difference soon after the procedure? Will I have any swelling or bruising and how long will it last?

Yes, soon after we complete one side of your face, u will be shown the mirror and one can easily compare the treated and untreated side of the face. Once u are happy with the treated side, we go to the other side and finish the procedure and then u can see both sides together. We always recommend a review after 15 days to see if any touch ups are required and the same is done during the review. Well all the fillers are hydrophilic in nature that means they attract water so mild swelling will be there along with some minimal bruising if any which settles down in couple of days’ time.

Any contraindications or special precautions for the procedure?

Well the only absolute contraindications include pregnancy, lactation and any known allergies for the above procedure. Rest we have to be careful in clients taking aspirin or any blood thinners and warn them about bruising which may last a bit longer than other clients.

Are there any complications with the filler procedure?

As with any procedure, there are complications known to happen but it can be minimized if u choose the right doctor and discuss well during the pre -procedure consultation all your concerns. The complications include excessivebruising especially in patients on blood thinners, hematoma, infection, too much filling, too little filling, etc. but all of them can be easily controlled.

Can I combine any other procedure along with fillers?

Yes, Botox injections can be combined with fillers either during the same sitting or 3-4 days after the same. Also, Thread lift can be combined with fillers, though not the same day but after 3 weeks after the filler injections are done.

When can I wash my face or apply cosmetics and makeup?

We recommend a waiting period of 24 hours before we recommend any rubbing or washing of face and application of any cosmetics or make up to prevent any infection. We also recommend to avoid direct sunlight for 1-2 days and apply sunscreen regularly to prevent damage from the radiation effects.

Do Dermal Fillers give permanent results?

No, dermal fillers are not permanent. The results last quite long depending upon how one kept his or her skin and whether u are taking adequate care to keep it hydrated and applying sunscreens regularly or not. The results for cheek fillers can last as long as 2 years or so.
