Wrinkle fillers are an effective way to fill out lines, but if you have sensitive skin you may be worried about having a cosmetic product injected under your skin. The good news is that dermal fillers are safe for even the most delicate parts of your face.
Safe and Natural
Wrinkle fillers are very safe since they are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in your skin. The chances of a bad reaction to the filler are very low, because it is a material that your body will recognise. Even when you are being treated on the most sensitive parts of your face, you shouldn’t experience any irritation due to the filler itself.
Potential Side Effects
However, while your body won’t react to the dermal filler itself, the process of injecting the filler can cause some slight irritation. This is particularly likely when the injections are targeting the most delicate parts of your face, such as the thin skin around your eyes. However, the needles used for the injections are very fine and the worst you should expect is a little redness or swelling. In most cases, there won’t be any noticeable signs that you have had a filler injected.
Choosing the Right Product
Although all wrinkle fillers are safe enough to use on the delicate skin of your face, there are several different kinds of fillers that are designed for different purposes. You will get advice on which kind of filler is right for you before you undergo treatment at the Dermadoc clinic. For example, the Juvederm Ultra Smile filler may be recommended for treatments targeting your lips, while a slightly thicker dermal filler such as Juvederm Ultra 2 may be needed to treat the fine lines in the delicate skin around your eyes. Other products may be needed to tackle deeper lines on other parts of your face.
