Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero Balance, and Radiesse are safe, non-allergenic substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to fill in lines, wrinkles and scars. Unlike Botox, they don’t relax facial muscle, but instead work to fill facial lines and plum the skin.
What to expect during treatment.
Dermal fillers are nonsurgical treatments that require little to no recovery downtime.
Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is performed and additional filler is used as needed.
You may experience minor discomfort, tenderness redness, swelling, bruising, or firmness at the injection site. Studies have shown that these symptoms are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or fewer.
If needed, you can apply ice pack to the injection site.
