At the appointment, your skin medical practitioner will want to know the background of the individual, as well as the medical history. The individual will be able to express what they would like their face to look like, and the practitioner will develop a plan using dermal fillers. Before the procedure, a test may be performed to make sure one is not allergic to the filler being used. Those who have sensitive skin may prefer to use a natural dermal filler. During the procedure, the area will be marked out on the face that is to be injected. Before photos may be taken. The face will then be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. The dermal filler will  then be injected into the site, and cool compresses can be applied to help with any discomfort. The dermal filler can contain a local anaesthetic to help with any discomfort. Other methods to ease any discomfort might include chilling the skin with a very cold instrument or applying a numbing cream to the treatment area. The process takes about half an hour to an hour to complete, depending on the size of the area being treated.

    I have been wanting to have a dermal filler done. I have never had any kind of work on my face, and have been very skiddish to get a facelift or any other type of surgery. But a dermal filler would work well for this aging skin. I just want to fill out the cheeks that have become hollow. I feel that would make my face look better. I fear that I look sickly sometimes and my confidence is pretty much zero right now. I am sure that my confidence would skyrocket if I had the chance to have this procedure done.

    Yes ladies, get a dermal filler. I had one done a few months ago and am very pleased with the results. I look younger, have more confidence, and am just happier then I have ever been. The results that I received were fabulous. My dermatologist took the time to explain what he was doing and was very caring and supportive of me. It was by far the best choice that I have made about my skin and I am grateful for the results. Once these results start to fade, I will be scheduling another dermal filler.

    I have pondered getting a dermal filler done on my face. I am aging and would love for my face to look a few years younger. One main question I have is how much younger can this procedure make one look? I would also like to know, since it states that makeup should not be worn right away, can you still go about your daily schedule as soon as you have the procedure done? I tend to work a lot of hours during the week and wondered if I would be able to have this procedure done on my lunch hour since it takes an hour or less for the face.

    I have had a dermal filler about eight months ago. I still look great, and feel that others can still tell a difference in my skin. My dermatologist said that the length that a dermal filler lasts depends on a variety of factors. These factors include how old you are, how healthy you are, the quality of your skin, your lifestyle, the area that is treated, and the quality of the dermal filler that is injected into the skin. I consider myself to be a healthy person and I am only 42 years old. So not old by any means. I have never smoked, and always use a sunscreen so I would have to say that quality of my skin is pretty well too. I get plenty of sleep and exercise on a regular basis and also watch what I eat and make sure that I get plenty of vegetables and fruits in my diet. So my lifestyle has proven to be healthy. I am hoping that the dermal filler will last a few more months, hopefully up to a year or more if I am lucky!

    I do have some sound advice to give for those that are looking into a dermal filler. Always make sure that you are seeing a trained professional when having a dermal filler injected into the skin. I once knew a lady that had a dermal filler injected into her face by an untrained person, and this caused her many problems. Blood started pooling beneath her skin, and infection did set in. She did not do her research very well before hand and was only looking at the amount of money that she was saving by having someone that claimed they knew what they were doing. Always take the time to do research on who will be performing the procedure. I am glad this article included questions to ask as it will come in handy for some. I would also want to see documentation of them having practiced the technique or see a certificate stating they were fully trained. Any doctor should be willing to share this information with a patient and if they are not willing to, then it would be best to find a new dermatologist or doctor.

    I am a woman of color in my late 40s. I wonder if a dermal filler is right for me. I have heard that woman of color should not use dermal fillers. Is this a correct statement? Is there something that I should know first before getting a dermal filler since I am darker skinned?

    Two months ago I had my first dermal filler in Sydney. I will tell you right now my face has never looked better. My dermatologist there was amazing and he really knew the procedure well. I was nervous about the procedure, but now I see I had nothing to fear. My face has more volume now, and my cheeks do not seem like they are hollow anymore. I have gained confidence. And my husband says that I look amazing. I am pleased with what the dermal fillers in Sydney has done for me and I know that you will be pleased as well too!

    For years I have suffered with thin lips. I never liked how they looked but two years ago I got tired of it and decided to have a dermal filler injected to make my lips fuller. I am now getting to a point to where I want to have the procedure done again. My lips stayed full for some time, and I am impressed with the results. The procedure was painless to me due to the very fine needle used, as well as the local anesthetic. At first I was scared that my lips would get too big, but they were not huge at all. I look forward to having the procedure done again to plump up my lips once more. I consider fuller lips to be attractive on a female, and my lips did look rather attractive after the treatment.

    I hate how my cheeks look. I was wondering if I had a dermal filler injected into my face, would I be able to have higher cheekbones? I know that it states it gives you volume, but is this the same thing? I guess when I think of volume, I think of chubby cheeks. Does volume in cheeks mean having a higher cheekbone?

    Many are often scared when they think of having a dermal filler injected into the skin. I am here to say it is not that bad. I have had dermal fillers injected into my skin three times now, and each time it was very well tolerated by me. The needle used is very fine. I saw immediate improvement in my facial features after the procedure. Each time I had the treatment done, it lasted between 7 to 8 months. My cheekbones and face have a fuller look now, more of a 3 dimensional look rather than a 2 dimensional look. I would recommend anyone that is aging to have a dermal filler done. Dermal fillers in Sydney can really help those that need a facelift without surgery.

    How much do facial fillers approximately cost? Are dermal fillers used only as facial fillers or can they be used elsewhere on the body?
