What to Expect at Your First Dermal Filler Appointment

Dermal filler treatment is extraordinarily popular for one major reason: the process achieves significant results with few side effects. Our patients love the wrinkle-smoothing, volumizing, rejuvenating effects that can be achieved with a carefully selected dermal filler product. Because it takes very little time to get dermal fillers, this treatment is appealing to first-time patients who are interested in enhancing their appearance without surgery. If you’re entering into the world of injectable facial treatments for the first time, you may feel more at ease knowing what you can expect. We’ll walk you through the process here.

Your Consultation

Your dermal filler treatment begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Fugo. During this visit, you will discuss your cosmetic goals. The doctor can answer your questions and explain which dermal filler he recommends to achieve your desired outcome. With years of training and experience treating the various signs of aging, Dr. Fugo knows how to develop the ideal map for injectable treatment.

Your Treatment

One of the beneficial aspects of dermal filler treatment is that the process takes just a few minutes. If you determine that this treatment is right for you after your consultation, the doctor may perform your injections during the same appointment. Generally, it takes less than 15 minutes for injectable treatments. However, if you are combining dermal fillers with other wrinkle-reducing injections, your appointment may take half an hour or longer.

Your Recovery

Another beneficial aspect of dermal filler treatment is that there is no downtime. You can expect some redness at your injection sites, and might also see minor swelling. These side effects usually last no more than a day or two, and usually fade within hours. It is important to refrain from touching the treatment area to prevent the unwanted spread of the filler away from its target location.

Aside from not pressing on the treatment area, there are no aftercare instructions for dermal filler patients. You can resume most if not all of your normal activities as soon as you leave the office. When receiving your first injectable treatment, it is advisable to allow time for side effects to resolve before engaging in strenuous activity. Taking it easy after treatment allows you to observe how your body responds to injections without outside influence.

Overall, the dermal filler process is simple, comfortable, and convenient. Most of all, it is gratifying in the immediate results it provides. To schedule your consultation for dermal fillers, contact us at (845) 565-7040.
