Injectable Filler

Choosing a facial filler injection

Injectable filler is the latest trend in the fight against aging skin. Injectable dermal fillers (the fancy name for skin fillers) are used to plump up the skin, filling in wrinkles and evening out skin tone. Most people opt for a facial filler injection; however, new options in injectables include elbows, kneed and hands.

As an aging population is increasingly interested in ways to maintain the look of youth, injectable fillers are becoming more popular and more acceptable. There are even instances of "Filler Parties," where a host will have a medical professional on-site during a party, so that guests can take advantage of facial filler injection services, and have a few drinks.

Preparing for an Injectable Facial Filler

Preparing for an injectable facial filler is quite easy. It's a fairly non-invasive procedure, which involves the injection of fillers in your face with the use of a syringe. The entire process can take less than fifteen minutes, and there is little to no recovery time. You may find that your skin is slightly numb or even tingly immediately after the injection. If you feel extreme discomfort, or if you notice excessive irritation, you should return to your medical professional or visit the hospital.

You should attend your injection procedure with clean and clear skin, wearing no makeup or additional facial products, including moisturizer.

Finding the Best Injectable Filler

As the injectable filler market grows, the number of options available to you increases. There are several different types of fillers available, and each has its pros and cons. Some doctors will only work with a particular filler, so if you have a preference, you need to find a professional who will work with your choice.

However, as your choices in fillers increases, so do does your risk of damage with the procedure. Each particular filler should be used in the way it was intended; therefore, you need to find a medical professional who is trained in the product to perform the procedure. You also want to make sure that the person you're dealing with is legitimate. There are many fly-by-night injectable clinics that pop up and disappear in a matter of weeks.

Since many of these injectable facial fillers work by not only plumping up the skin, but also paralyzing facial muscles to decrease the instances of wrinkles, there is some risk of damage to skin and muscles. You should always put your personal safety first when choosing an injectable filler and the person who will perform the procedure.
