Forehead fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment that can help to contour the forehead as well as smooth out deep wrinkles on the forehead. They can also be used to add volume above the brow area to give the face a more youthful appearance.
If you are considering getting forehead fillers, it’s important to be well-informed about the treatment and what to expect. Here are some key points to consider when thinking about getting forehead fillers:
What are forehead fillers made of?
Forehead fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps to keep it hydrated and plump. There are several different types of hyaluronic acid fillers available, including Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero. Each brand has its own unique formulation, so it’s important to discuss with your practitioner which one is best for you.
How are forehead fillers administered?
Forehead fillers are typically administered using a fine needle or cannula. Dr Edwin prefers the cannula method which involves the use of a thin, flexible tube to inject the filler into the skin, rather than a traditional needle.
This method is less invasive and results in less bruising and swelling compared to traditional needle injections. The procedure is relatively quick, taking around 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
Discomfort is minimal because the fillers contain an anesthetic ingredient which helps to numb the area of injection.
After the treatment, you may experience some swelling and redness, which should resolve within a few days. You should also avoid heavy exercise or applying pressure to the injected area.
How long do forehead fillers last?
The duration of the effects of forehead fillers can vary from person to person, but they typically last around 9 to 12 months. After this time, the fillers will naturally break down and be absorbed by the body, and you may need to have a repeat treatment to maintain the results.
Are there any risks or side effects associated with forehead fillers?
As with any medical procedure, there are some risks and side effects associated with forehead fillers. These may include swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site, as well as the risk of infection. In rare cases, there may also be a risk of allergic reaction to the filler.
What should I consider before getting forehead fillers?
Before getting forehead fillers, it’s important to do your research and choose a reputable practitioner. Look for someone who is qualified and experienced in administering facial fillers, and be sure to ask about their training and qualifications. It’s also a good idea to discuss your medical history and any medications you are taking with your practitioner, as these may affect your suitability for the treatment.
How much do forehead fillers cost?
The cost of forehead fillers can vary depending on the type of filler used and the extent of the treatment. It’s worth shopping around and getting quotes from a few different practitioners to find the best deal.
Can forehead fillers be combined with other treatments?
Forehead fillers can often be combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as Botox, to achieve even better results. It’s important to discuss all of your treatment options with your practitioner to determine the best approach for your needs.
Overall, forehead fillers using the cannula method are a safe and effective treatment for reducing wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead. The less invasive nature of the treatment and the precise placement of the filler make it a popular choice for many patients. Consult with a qualified medical professional to determine if this treatment is right for you.
