What Can I Expect When Getting Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers?
As stated before, Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are now the most common type of filler used by medical professionals. These fillers are given by injection into the area being treated. Since there is no downtime involved, the patient can immediately return to their normal routine following their 30 to 45-minute appointment. During the treatment, a numbing agent may be used to negate the pain associated with the needle penetrating the skin. The areas to be treated are carefully marked and then the injections are given. Following the treatment, patients may experience discomfort from the needle, tenderness or slight swelling and can use ice to soothe the area. With this type of filler, most patients report seeing an immediate difference with the final results appearing within a week. Results can last 6 months or longer, making this procedure a highly satisfying experience.
