What is a Filler? Filler injections are composed of Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our body. Small amounts of filler gel are injected into the skin or below it to add fullness, or volume to the soft tissues that are 'hollowed out' by age. Fillers are also useful to treat static wrinkles and folds.
What is the ideal age to take a Filler? Filler can be done for anyone who would benefit by it cosmetically, irrespective of the age. As a thumb rule though, most people above 40 years of age would benefit by it, and it may be performed as early as the 30's or earlier, depending on the person's needs.
Filler injections are performed as an outpatient procedure in the clinic. Specially designed ultra fine needles or cannulas are used, to deposit the filler in the right tissue planes. Anaesthesia cream is applied 20 minutes prior to make it painless.
There is minimal downtime, with occasional bruising, and soreness lasting for a day or two. You can, return to work immediately.
Duration of Effect The results of Filler injections are instantaneous, and last upto a year. In areas such as under-eye, it may also last for 1.5 to 2 years. Touch-ups or enhancements if any, are performed at 2 weeks.
How often do I need to repeat it? Looking good, it a continuous process. Hence, many clients choose to top up the filler after 1-2 years or earlier when the effect reduces. However, it is not mandatory to use it indefinitely. If you discontinue after one session, the hollows will return to as they were, and would not worsen.
Filler injection is often combined with other non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botulinum toxin and Chemical peels.
