While dermal fillers are often confused with Botox, the two work in different, almost opposite, ways. Botox reduces wrinkles by paralyzing underlying muscles, while dermal fillers, by adding volume. The two are often used together to achieve full effect.
Dermal fillers can smoothen out bumpy skin, increase lip volume, and fill out cheek hollows. They are classified under two main categories: naturally derived and synthetic. The former, as the name implies, is formulated from natural extracts, while the latter is made out of lab-generated materials. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Naturally derived fillers have fewer side effects but last only six to eighteen months. Synthetic fillers, on the other hand, are riskier but last up to two years, sometimes even longer. Depending on your medical history and background, results between the two may vary. To know which works better for you, it’s best to consult a board certified cosmetic surgeon or cosmetic professional.
While both forms of the procedure are generally considered safe, it’s always best to have it performed by a board-certified cosmetic professional. Complications for dermal fillers include mild pain, dryness of the mouth, bruising, facial weakness, and fatigue. Experiencing these symptoms a few weeks following your operation is perfectly normal. However, if they persist, consult your surgeon or attending physician.
Typically, results become visible as early as three days following your procedure. While mild swelling and bruising may bug you during your recovery, you can return to your normal routine in three days to one week.
