1. The freezing effect on facial muscles is not caused by fillers.
2. Fillers vary in type and quality, with hyaluronic acid-based fillers being the recommended option due to their safety and easy dissolution if needed. Other types include calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) and poly-L-lactic acid products.
3. Fillers consist of a naturally occurring substance found in the body, typically hyaluronic acid, which plumps and restores lost volume when injected beneath the skin’s surface.
4. Prioritize a gradual approach and avoid performing all filler procedures in one session, allowing for a few weeks between appointments.
5. Injecting filler deep into nasiolabial folds can lead to unnatural results, making cheek injections a more natural alternative.
6. Fillers are generally not painful, and the downtime is minimal, usually limited to a few days for swelling and bruising to subside.
7. Bruising may occur after filler treatments, but it can be minimized by using cannulas and applying ice packs.
8. Risks associated with fillers include inflammation, infection, and accidental injection into blood vessels, which requires immediate medical attention.
9. It is recommended to have filler treatments at least three weeks before significant events to allow any bruising or swelling to subside.
10. The longevity of fillers depends on factors such as the type and thickness of the filler, with breakdown starting from six months up to two years.
11. Correctly administered fillers should not stretch the skin; overfilling in certain areas can cause skin stretching and unnatural results.
12. Quality fillers should integrate into the tissue over time, preventing hard lumps from forming under the skin.
13. Achieving the desired look typically does not require multiple sessions, and adjustments are rarely needed.
14. A solid skincare routine can complement filler treatments, improving skin quality and preventing makeup from settling in creases.
15. While rare, fillers can move within the first few days after treatment, but proper injection techniques and appropriate filler types can minimize this risk.
16. Routine kissing does not cause fillers to break down faster or move within the face; filler longevity is influenced by natural facial movements.
17. Bringing photographs of oneself from a younger age to the consultation can help the practitioner assess lost volume and provide appropriate treatment.
18. Lips may appear uneven for a few days after treatment due to swelling, but this is normal and temporary.
19. Following aftercare advice from the practitioner is crucial to avoid unwanted side effects, such as filler migration or increased bruising.
20. Dental treatments, like facials and facial massages, should be avoided for four weeks after filler treatments to prevent filler migration.
21. Fillers are not recommended during pregnancy or while breastfeeding due to potential complications.
22. Caffeine intake before the procedure does not significantly impact the results, but staying hydrated is important.
23. Sleeping on your back for the first 24-48 hours after filler injections is advised, followed by side sleeping.
24. Most fillers are temporary, with different areas of the face lasting between 8-18 months depending on the type of filler used.
25. Rejection of fillers is rare, especially when using biocompatible and hyaluronic acid-based fillers.
