Fillers are an effective anti-aging treatment that helps patients to regain their former youthful appearance.
They are a type of minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to add volume, change the shape of the face, and smooth out wrinkles. They help to add a youthful look to the skin. Fillers can be used for so much more than just the face. They can be used in the hands, the neck, and even the feet.
There are three main types of dermal fillers:
Collagen-based fillers: Collagen is a naturally occurring substance that adds strength and structure to the skin.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers: Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring material and is mainly used to increase volume and fullness in the skin. They help to restore the natural glow and beauty and take good care of hollows and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid fillers are one of the safest fillers available today with minimal to no side effects.
Calcium hydroxylapatite-based fillers: Calcium hydroxylapatite is denser and heavier than hyaluronic acid. This filler is injected deep under the skin and doesn’t usually cause an immune or allergic response because the material is usually present in bones.
Semi-Permanent Dermal Fillers: Longer-lasting dermal fillers, on the other hand, are made with heavier substances such as a biodegradable synthetic substance called poly-L-lactate. These types of soft tissue fillers are used to temporarily smooth out deep facial lines. They offer semi-permanent effects.
Permanent Dermal Fillers: Permanent fillers are usually made from polymethylmethacrylate acid (PMMA) which are microscopic spheres that are not absorbed by your body. It also contains collagen and is recommended for thicker skin areas such as the nasolabial folds.
The type of filler that a person needs greatly depends on the analysis and diagnosis of their skin type, texture, and condition.
The ideal candidate for dermal fillers is someone who is looking to address wrinkles, fine lines, or loss of facial volume. This person should be in good general health without any allergies or autoimmune conditions. Dermal fillers are not recommended for those who are severely immunocompromised.
You will be consulted about the type of filler to be used, and any other details when you visit Dr. Anjali for a dermal fillers consultation. Before starting the treatment, Dr. Anjali will ask you about your medical history.
It’s important to tell Dr. Anjali about any allergies you may have before the procedure. Some pictures may be taken in order to check the results after the procedure.
The procedure for the administration of fillers involves the marking of the sites where fillers are to be injected and cleansing the area for the administration of the same.
Anesthesia is not necessary for the administration of fillers. Some fillers contain a local anesthetic like lidocaine for enhanced comfort during injection. Topical anesthetics may also be used in some cases.
The needles used for the dermal filler injections are thin and short, so the pain is minimal.
Extreme care is taken to inject fillers properly so as not to cause any damage to the underlying structures and to prevent any nerve injury.
The amount of injections greatly depends on the facial structure and the wrinkles that need to be removed. It takes anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to complete the procedure.
One of the most appealing features of soft tissue fillers is their minimal recovery time. Dr. Anjali may recommend that you avoid wearing hats or other types of headwear and only wear small amounts of makeup for some time.
The cost of the treatment may vary depending on which type, quality, and/or brand of dermal filler is required for the treatment. The cost also depends upon the number of injections required, the number of sessions needed for your unique needs, and touch-ups. For example, lip filler costs in Visakhapatnam will be less expensive than the cost of multiple facial fillers.
During the consultation, Dr. Anjali will explain the cost of the treatment for your case, including all contributing factors.Book Appointment

Dermal fillers are generally quite safe. There is, however, a small risk of swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site, like all cosmetic procedures. These adverse effects are generally minor and will go away in a few days.
