There are numerous facial fillers available on the market and they’re turning into immensely widespread. Though, not fairly as widespread as Botox, they’re shortly turning into the “subsequent greatest factor.” Though there are thousands and thousands of men and women doing this, for these which can be newer to this, you might be most likely questioning the next:
Ought to I do that? Who ought to I let do the injection? What are the dangers? And if I hate it, can I reverse it?
Let me preface my feedback by saying that I’ve all the time finished all of my very own injections for fillers and Botox for my sufferers. I do know many locations use estheticians and different medical doctors that aren’t plastic surgeons (even dentists). More often than not, that is most likely fantastic however there’s a lot to be stated for having an skilled plastic surgeon do your injections. However finally, that’s your resolution, based mostly in your consolation stage.
Not all facial fillers are reversible. Solely these which can be made out of hyaluronic acid might be reversed. The excellent news is that each one the facial fillers that I exploit are made out of hyaluronic acid: specifically Juvaderm and Voluma, and their related households of merchandise. This additionally applies to Restylane and Perlane and that total household of fillers. This doesn’t apply to Radiesse or Sculptra, that are made out of a very completely different materials.
When a filler is injected, I all the time inform my sufferers to therapeutic massage any agency areas that they might discover in the course of the first week. You may actually ice an space after an injection, however it isn’t required. Additionally, in case you are pleased with the take care of the injection, it should nearly actually keep that approach. Everybody will get some water absorption and slight swelling after the filler is injected. I strongly advise everybody to attend 2 weeks after the filler earlier than contemplating making any adjustments. Since folks generally look at the realm injected very critically, you will need to understand that there could also be refined variations between the areas injected and alongside the areas injected (eg the 2 sides of the lip) which may be noticeable to you at day 2 or 3 , however will probably be fantastic by day 14. The vital factor to notice right here is to not be in a rush to make adjustments within the first two weeks!
I consider the primary benefit of figuring out that your filler is reversible is having peace of thoughts that you’re not “caught” for a lot of months or years with the filler if you find yourself not likely liking it. The sensible aspect is that you’re most unlikely to even want it reversed. You also needs to know that in the event you inject the reversing agent, it might dissolve ALL of the filler injected into that space, which you’ll not need. It isn’t a precise science and we can not management precisely how a lot of the filler will soften away with the reversing agent.
