Frequently Asked Questions About Our Dermal Fillers in Mt. Vernon IL
Dermal fillers are one of the more popular options that are available when it comes to treatments targeting wrinkles, fine lines, and lost facial volume. They work by filling in the skin and providing more tone and smoothness to the skin by reducing wrinkles. Here at the Skin Care Center of Southern Illnois, we get asked a lot of questions about our dermal fillers in Mt Vernon IL area and the neighboring areas. Here are some of the most common ones:
How are the fillers administered? These dermal fillers are administered through micro needle injections. The filler liquid is injected below the upper layer of skin cells and stimulates healthy cellular growth.
Is the procedure painful? The procedure is no more painful than a small needle injection prick. Depending on the area and size of the area being treated multiple injections are usually required.
How long will I be limited on my activities? In most cases, you can go about your business right after the treatment though you may be advised to limit physical activities for 24 hours following the treatment.
Are there any side effects I need to worry about? Dermal fillers are very safe and the chance of infection or allergic reaction are very small and there is usually nothing more than mild irritation at the treatment spot.
Will the results last? For most of our patients, the effects of the dermal fillers will last a few months before repeat injections are needed. We will help you determine the maintenance cycle that is best.
