What to Expect After Your Filler Treatment

Soft tissue dermal fillers are a big success when it comes to long-lasting treatments that shave years from your appearance. In fact, Americans choose dermal fillers twice as often as the top five cosmetic surgeries combined. 

It makes sense. The collection of fillers we offer — including Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Belotero® — use hyaluronic acid as the formula base, a protein that’s found throughout your body already, and in particular in the middle layer of your skin, where it provides moisture and nourishment for the skin’s surface. 

When manufactured into injectable gel form, hyaluronic acid replaces volume in your skin that you naturally lose through the aging process. In the hands of skilled estheticians like those at Radiance Wellness MediSpa, you’ve added a powerful treatment to your cosmetic toolbox, without the need to resort to surgery. 

When to choose fillers

Dermal fillers work well in a variety of situations. Unlike botulinum toxin injections like Botox®️, which only work on muscle-based lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are suitable anywhere you’ve lost volume in the support layers of your skin.

You start producing less collagen sometime in your 20s. Where once your cheeks and lips were plump and full, you’ll see less of this as collagen levels drop. In addition, voids begin to form in the support matrix below your skin’s surface, allowing the outer layer to crease and fold as it loses moisture and elasticity. 

Dermal fillers can add months-long support to your skin in places where aging shows up the most, places like: 

Fillers could be an ideal solution virtually anywhere your skin needs support. 

After your treatment

Dermal fillers are delivered with fine needles once the skin in the injection area is numb. Under the practiced eyes and hands of your esthetician, the appropriate product for the task is built up under your skin. Each product has its own properties, suited to specific treatment tasks. 

The injection needles are fine enough that they produce little bleeding. It’s unlikely you’ll have any signs of this by the time you leave the office, though this varies from patient to patient. Similarly, some people may experience mild bruising around the injection sites, but that’s not very common. 

You should avoid any intense activity like workouts or heavy yard chores for a day or two following treatment. This helps keep bruising and swelling to a minimum. 

Other conditions you might observe immediately after treatment — which resolve in a few days — include:

Your caregiver gives you recovery information at your appointment. This may include tips such as how and when to lightly ice the area as well as any specific instructions connected with the procedure or location that you received.
