The materials used in dermal fillers naturally occur in the body, which is why there’s only a rare possibility of allergic reactions. The entire treatment is safe as long as it’s performed by a skilled injector. Bruising, redness, and swelling might occur at the treatment site, but these symptoms usually subside after a few days. Make sure to call a medical professional immediately if they worsen or persist.
Most patients notice visible results right after their treatment. These results gradually improve over the next few weeks. However, dermal fillers only last for a few months before the substance gets absorbed by the body. Patients are often advised to get follow-up treatments to maintain the results of dermal fillers for longer.
Fillers could last up to two years, depending on the type of ingredients and placement.
