What’s Getting Dermal Filler Like?

There are many documented procedures on YouTube that can show you an accurate depiction of what getting chin fillers is like. But if you’re a bit squeamish and would like to avoid the graphic content, then read on to get an understanding of how your procedure might be carried out.

Firstly, before any type of treatment is administered, you will have a consultation with your cosmetic injector. 

If you want to enhance your nose, they will assess the area of your face you want to enhance, recommend the type of filler most appropriate for your desired result, and suggest how much nose filler should be injected.

At this stage, you can discuss any concerns with them to see if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure, and so you can see the difference resulting from your procedure, they will take a before and after picture of your face or facial area. 

Before the filler is injected, the facial area will be cleaned and numbed with a topical numbing cream. The numbing cream should be left on for 15 minutes to sink in sufficiently. Then, after cleaning the area once again, the filler is applied. The filler will be injected with precision and using various techniques to attain symmetry and achieve your desired look.

So, now the big question. Does it hurt? 

Everyone will have a different experience. Depending on your pain threshold, you may experience little to mild discomfort. If at any stage, the experience becomes too intense, you can ask your injector to take a short break. 

To take your mind off the procedure and help the professional do their best work, focus on breathing steadily through your nose. After the procedure is complete, the enhanced area will receive another clean, and an ice pack will be applied to reduce swelling. 

What’s involved in the aftercare?

The post-procedure experience is different for everyone. Generally, however, there will be bruising and swelling. Some people swell and bruise more than others, so don’t be alarmed if you look a bit purple and blue following the procedure. 

Try to schedule the appointment before the weekend, or take a day or two off if you don’t feel comfortable sharing this with others.

There are frequently lumps and bumps in the region. Over time, these lumps will become softer. Your cosmetician will schedule a follow-up appointment to check on the area a few weeks after the surgery to ensure that everything is healing well and looking excellent.

In general, it’s important to keep the affected area of skin clean (avoid using heavy creams or makeup while the skin is healing), stay away from heat and high temperatures because they will irritate the skin and possibly cause inflammation, avoid touching or rubbing the affected area of skin because this will cause irritation and swelling, and get medical help if you experience any unusual symptoms.

It is better to take paracetamol if you are in any pain. Avoid taking any drug that could affect your blood pressure, such as ibuprofen.
