What to expect during and after a filler injection from our dentist

Tuesday, 16th August, 2022

If you're considering getting a filler injection to correct the signs of ageing, you may be wondering what to expect at our dentist Meath. A filler is a substance that is injected under the skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Fillers can also be used to plump up the lips and cheeks, and to restore volume to the face. There are many different types of filler available at our practice Navan Dental and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. The most popular fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Other types of fillers include those made from fat or collagen. Fillers are usually injected into the skin using a fine needle, and the procedure is typically quick and relatively painless. After the injection, you may feel some temporary discomfort, swelling, and bruising. These side effects usually resolve within a few days. You should see an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and lines immediately after the injection, and the results typically last for 6 months to a year.

What to expect during a filler injection

Filler injections are a popular way to achieve a more youthful appearance. They can be used to plump up facial structure giving it a fresh, dewy look, or to add volume to the lips or cheeks. There are many different types of fillers available, and each one has its own set of risks and benefits.

Most filler injections are relatively painless, and can be done in a normal treatment room at our dentist Meath. The injection site may be numbed with a local anaesthetic, and the filler itself is usually injected with a very fine needle. There are a few things you can expect after your filler injection. For instance, the injection site may be red, swollen, and tender for a few days, so avoid applying pressure to it.

What to expect after a filler injection

Most people report little to no discomfort after filler injections. However, you may experience some minor after effects. These symptoms typically resolve within a few days. It is important to follow our team's instructions for post-injection care, including avoiding strenuous activity and sun exposure. Depending on the type of filler used, results may be apparent immediately or may take a few days to develop. Results from hyaluronic acid fillers typically last 6 to 12 months, while those from collagen fillers last 3 to 6 months.

The benefits of filler injections

The benefits of filler injections are many. Filler injections are a quick, simple way to achieve a more youthful look without surgery.

Filler injections are also very safe. The most common side effects are temporary and most are confined to the injection site. These side effects typically resolve within a week.

Filler injections can provide significant results even some that last up to 18 months. After this time, the body will slowly absorb the injected material and you may need additional treatments to maintain your results.

Top-up treatments

If you're happy with the results of your filler injection, you may only need occasional top-up treatments to maintain your desired look. However, the type of filler used and how long the results last vary from person to person. Some people may need to return for top-up treatments every few months, while others may only need them every year or two at our dentist Meath.
