How are dermal fillers done?
Dermal filler injections are usually a quick and easy procedure that you can undergo in the doctor’s office. You won’t be put under anesthesia, so you can drive yourself home afterward. When you come in for your appointment, the surgeon will make small marks on your face to map out where the injections are going to go. Your skin will be cleaned, and there may be a topical numbing cream applied to the injection site. Some fillers are also mixed with painkiller to help with discomfort. The injections are then administered, following the marks the surgeon made. When he is done, the marks will be removed. Some patients might be given a cold compress to help with any swelling that might occur.
