Dermal filler ingredients, techniques, and uses have become more advanced since the launch of Botox in the late 1980s.Botox is still a reliable skin filler that is a must-have in any good cosmetic treatment centre but there are now alternatives that expand the possibilities of injectable filler uses.


There are over 30 cosmetic fillers availableso you're sure to find one that works for you. Some provide a subtle lip plump, while others can reshape your nose. While fillers will never be able to replace plastic surgery, their non-permanent effect makes them very appealing to people who want to look good without going under the knife.


If you're thinking about getting dermal fillers to improve your appearance and boost your confidence, there are a few things you should know first. Let's go over the top ten things you should know about facial fillers before you schedule a consultation.


Ten Things to Know About Dermal Fillers


1. No Unnatural Chemicals

Cosmetic fillers are only permitted in Canada if they contain biocompatible ingredients. That is, they contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid or collagen. Ingredients like silicone will never be found in a dermal filler used in Canada.


2. Vegetarians can Use Dermal Fillers

Some dermal fillers are vegan-friendly, including Juvéderm, Canada's most popular filler! If you're unsure whether your chosen filler will work with your diet and lifestyle, consult with the treatment centre, which will be able to recommend the best dermal filler for you.


3. Choose Your Effect

You can customise the amount of filler injected at each treatment session to achieve the look you desire. A good cosmetic treatment centre will always advise you to begin small and work your way up. This allows you to gradually work your way up to your desired look without the risk of a 'trout pout.'


Dermal fillers are now so subtle and natural that you can look like your best self. Exaggerated features aren't necessary unless that's the look you're going for. However, you will notice that people begin to compliment you on how good you look – and you may find yourself telling them why!


4. Less Bruising and Little Pain

Injectable filler needles are so small that bruising is minimal. A skilled technician will be able to plump your lips or reduce fine lines with minimal visible bruising. During your treatment, a numbing gel containing lidocaine will be applied to the injection site. This reduces any pain caused by the needle piercing the skin and will wear off shortly after the session is over.


5. Fast Recovery Times

The injection sites will be sore for a day or two, but the pain can be easily managed with over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen. To reduce swelling, apply ice compresses to the injection sites for a few minutes every hour. Even larger filler procedures, such as nose reshaping, will have a shorter recovery time than plastic surgery.


6. Dermal Fillers can be Reversed

Juvéderm and other non-permanent facial fillers are reversible. Because bio-compatible ingredients are used, dermal fillers can be dissolved if you are unhappy with the results. Dissolving the fillers requires additional injections to get the treatment to the filler site, but this will feel exactly the same as when the fillers were placed.


7. The Effects Wear Off

Non-permanent dermal fillers are just that: temporary. They do, however, have a very long lifespan. Depending on the filler, you may require another session six months to two years after your initial injection.


Because dermal fillers fade, they are ideal for first-timers and those who simply want to look their best for an important event such as a wedding. It's also worth noting that many people who try non-permanent cosmetic fillers with the intention of only using them once end up returning for more because they love how they look!


8. You Don’t Have to Wait Until You Have Fine Lines

Choose cosmetic fillers as a preventative measure before you notice wrinkles. Filling in areas prone to fine lines, such as the brow, eye area, and nose-to-mouth lines, before wrinkles appear will help you look younger for longer.


9. Fillers Aren’t Just for Plumper Lips or Wrinkles

Dermal fillers can be used for a variety of procedures. If you're unhappy with something about your appearance, consult with a cosmetic filler specialist to see if your issue is treatable with injectables rather than surgery.


10. Dermal Fillers Aren’t Cheap

If you come across a ‘really great deal' on dermal fillers that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It’s not just the ingredients of the facial filler that you’re paying for.


The experience of your technician is critical to ensuring that you are satisfied with the results, that pain and bruising are minimized, and that complications are avoided.


A low-cost dermal filler deal should be avoided because the ingredients may be of poor quality, or the person performing the treatment may be inexperienced.


Just as you wouldn't want your high school intern performing plastic surgery on you, it's important to find the best dermal filler specialist in your area to ensure you're satisfied with the results.


The Side Effects of Facial Fillers

Facial fillers have gotten a bad rap. Yes, there may be some side effects or reactions, as with any cosmetic or medical procedure.


However, the occurrence of negative reactions is low and is frequently linked to an inexperienced therapist.


Before you proceed with any treatment, a good treatment centre will go over all of the possible side effects, such as longer-lasting numbness or the risk of allergy.


Questions to Ask Before Getting Dermal Fillers

• Do you sigh when you see your reflection?
• Do you wish your Instagram filters worked in real life?
• Have you found your face changing with age?
• Are you comfortable around injections?
• Does plastic surgery interest but intimidate you?
• Do you want to keep looking your best?


In conclusion, if you answered yes to any of the above, it's time to schedule a consultation to determine which cosmetic filler might be best for you to be your happiest, best self.
