Embarking on the journey to flawless skin, dermal fillers stand as pillars of modern aesthetic medicine. Explore their multifaceted benefits and discover the key to pain-free rejuvenation.

**What are dermal fillers and how do they work?**

Also known as dermal fillers, these are injectable products used to correct skin imperfections (wrinkles, folds, scars), restore soft tissue volume, and improve facial contours. They consist of a gel based on hyaluronic acid or other materials (collagen, polylactic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite).

**Which areas of the face and body can be rejuvenated with dermal fillers?**

Fillers can be used to rejuvenate various areas of the face and body, including the lips, cheekbones, chin, nasolacrimal grooves, nasolabial folds, and between the eyebrows. They can also help remove horizontal creases on the forehead, neck, and scars. However, it is not recommended to correct the angles of the cheekbones or the tip of the nose in this way due to the high risk of side effects, including necrosis.

**How long does the effect last after a dermal filler procedure and how long does it take?**

The duration of the effect depends on many factors, including the type of dermal filler, individual characteristics of the facial structure and skin condition, cellular metabolism, and post-procedure care. On average, it lasts for 6 to 18 months. A session usually takes from 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the amount of correction.

**What benefits do dermal fillers provide?**

Here are the main benefits of dermal fillers:
– Allow you to eliminate facial and static wrinkles effectively.
– Help restore lost volume in various areas of the face.
– Moisturize and nourish the skin.
– Contribute to achieving a natural and harmonious result.
– Do not require a long recovery period.
– Consists of natural components with a low risk of allergic reactions.
Although the results are temporary, they can be prolonged with proper care. In addition, injections can be repeated as needed.

**Are there any risks or side effects when using dermal fillers?**

Even though the technique is considered safe, it is important to be aware of possible negative consequences. Redness, swelling, bruises, or marks from injections may be temporarily present, which disappear within 1-3 days. However, infections, allergic reactions to drug components, filler migration, and post-procedural pigmentation pose a greater risk.

**What skincare routines are recommended after using dermal fillers?**

The main recommendation is to protect the skin from ultraviolet rays. A cream with a high SPF level will help prevent premature aging, minimize the risk of pigmentation, and maintain results longer. The remaining procedures are selected individually according to indications.

**What alternative rejuvenation methods are there besides dermal fillers?**

The choice is vast, but the most effective options include reinforcement, botulinum therapy, plasma therapy, and RF lifting. Lipofilling, where the patient’s adipose tissue is used as a filler, is the closest alternative.

**Pain relief during dermal filler injections**

Before the filler is injected under the skin, it may be numbed with a local anesthetic to reduce the pain level. This also improves the delivery of oxygen to tissues, promotes their regeneration, and helps fight bacteria. One of the local anesthetics used in cosmetology is Goosica Numbing cream, containing 8.5% lidocaine and 8.5% prilocaine, known for its effectiveness in relieving skin pain, with minimal risk of allergic reactions due to the absence of preservatives.
