How To Prepare for Your First Dermal Filler Appointment

Dermal fillers are an effective, non-surgical cosmetic injectable treatment, designed to increase or restore volume, correct asymmetry, add definition or rejuvenate a person’s appearance. Dermal fillers can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the face and other areas of the body. Before your cosmetic injectable treatment at Inigo Cosmetic (which may include dermal fillers), you will need to have a consultation with one of our practitioners, to discuss your concerns and treatment goals.

If you are considering getting dermal fillers for the first time, it is essential to prepare for your consultation to ensure that you get the best possible outcome. In this blog, we will give you some key steps to take to feel ready for your dermal filler consultation. 

Find a reputable cosmetic injectable clinic

Before booking a cosmetic injectable consultation, research and choose a reputable provider for your dermal filler treatment, look for a provider who is qualified and experienced. If you’re located in Brisbane, Inigo Cosmetic may be the right choice for you. Our staff consists of experienced and qualified cosmetic physicians (doctors), registered nurses and dermal therapists.. At Inigo Cosmetic, you’ll receive high quality care and be met with a team that knows how to create your desired results, while minimising potential risks and complications.

Decide what areas you want to treat with dermal filler

Have a clear idea of the areas you want to treat before your cosmetic injectable consultation. This will help your cosmetic injector understand your goals and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan for you. Common areas for dermal fillers treatment to address volume loss, ageing, fine lines and wrinkles include cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Nose filler and jaw filler are common for those wanting to alter the shape of these particular feature. If you like, you can treat multiple areas with dermal fillers at the same time – just be sure to discuss this option during your consultation. 

Be prepared to discuss your medical history

Your cosmetic injector will need to know your medical history before recommending treatment with dermal fillers. This includes any allergies, medications you are currently taking, and any previous cosmetic injectable treatments that you have had. It is important to be honest and thorough when discussing your medical history to ensure your provider can make the best recommendations for your treatment.

A big part of the purpose of your consultation is to assess whether or not you are a suitable candidate for the dermal filler treatment, which can be determined by ensuring you meet certain requirements. Performing dermal filler treatment on suitable candidates only is very important when it comes to achieving the best results possible and preventing complications. If it so happens that you may not be deemed as a suitable candidate for dermal fillers, our friendly team will be able to make recommendations for alternative options that may be better suited to you.

Understand the potential risks and side effects of dermal fillers

Like any cosmetic injectable treatment, dermal fillers come with potential risks and side effects. These may include bruising, swelling, redness, and infection. While these side effects are typically mild and temporary, there are also more serious potential side effects such as vascular occlusion and tissue death, it is essential to understand all risks before committing to treatment. Generally, the side effects of treatment with dermal fillers can be prevented by following any preparation and recovery instructions you are provided with and choosing a clinic with qualified staff who know how to deal with any complications that may arise. For example, ensure that the clinic you attend has hyaluronidase on site for treatment of vascular occlusion. 

Ask questions

Don’t be afraid to ask questions during your dermal filler consultation. Your cosmetic injector should be willing to answer any questions you have and explain the treatment process in detail. Some questions to consider asking include: 

  • How many injections will I need? 
  • How many syringes of dermal filler will I need?
  • How long will my dermal filler results last? 
  • What are the potential risks and side effects of dermal filler? 
  • What can I expect during and after my dermal filler treatment? 

Asking these questions specific to your personalised treatment will also help you to get a better idea of the costs, aftercare process and results of your treatment, specific to your individual needs. 

Discuss your budget

Dermal fillers can be costly, and it is essential to discuss your budget during your consultation. Your provider should be upfront about the cost of treatment and any additional fees, such as consultation fees or aftercare costs. If the cost is higher than you expected, you can discuss alternative treatment options.

Prepare for the aftercare process

After your dermal fillers treatment, you will need to follow certain aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results. This may include avoiding certain activities, such as strenuous exercise for a certain period and taking care of the injection sites. During your dermal filler consultation, your provider will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and answer any questions you have about the aftercare process. In addition, following a good skincare routine can help you to enhance the effects of your results.
