Important Considerations for Juvederm & Restylane

Patients have many choices when it comes to choosing a type of filler. The most important aspect when choosing is the clinical outcome that is desired by the patient. Other considerations include anatomical areas, depth of injection, and desired result duration. Fillers may also be used in conjunction with surgical treatments 

Patient with a thicker skin require fillers that are more robust and thicker. By using a thicker filler, the treatment requires less volume to achieve the structural results desired. Patients with thicker skin may also receive injections at different depths. 

Patients with darker skin may require fillers that are less likely to cause inflammation and bruising. Dark skin is prone to post inflammatory pigmentation and therefore, health professionals need to consider this when injecting. 

The ideal filler

The ideal filler is non-allergenic, long lasting, reversible, and has a natural look after the treatment is administered. Furthermore, the ideal filler needs to be comfortable for the patient and minimizes bruising and swelling. 

Ability to reverse the treatment

Patients are highly recommended to choose fillers that are reversible. This means that if the patient is not happy with the results, then the health professional can inject a substance that reverses the filler over a few days. If a patient chooses a permanent filler, the only way to remove the filler is to surgical extract it.
