Injectable Filler Facts.

If you’re considering getting fillers, take a look at these four need-to-know facts about dermal fillers to help you decide if they could be right for you.

1. Dermal Fillers Aren’t Just for Wrinkles

Fillers are best known for their ability to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, but that’s not all they can do. Fillers can also be used to plump up areas like the cheeks and lips to restore lost volume.

2. More Men Are Choosing Fillers

Injectable treatments aren’t just loved by ladies — more men than ever before are now getting dermal fillers as well.

BOTOX is also common among men to smooth away crow’s feet and enhance the jawline.

3. Some Can Be Dissolved

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers can be dissolved with a special enzyme called hyaluronidase if you don’t love your results for any reason. Other types of fillers can’t be dissolved, so you’ll have to wait it out while the effects wear away on their own.

4. There’s No Downtime

Injectable fillers are often called “lunchtime procedures” because they’re quick enough to fit into a lunch break and there’s no downtime afterward. Still, you should schedule your appointment at least two weeks before an important event, since swelling and bruising may persist for this amount of time.
