Dermal Filler Do’s and Don’ts for Wrinkles, Lips and More

Dermal Filler Do's and Don'ts for Wrinkles, Lips and More

Dermal fillers are a popular treatment for wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging. They’re usually made from hyaluronic acid, naturally found in your skin. When injected into the skin, it acts like a sponge to absorb moisture and plump up lines. But dermal fillers aren’t entirely harmless; they can cause serious side effects if misused or by an unqualified person.

The Do’s in Getting Dermal Fillers

It’s essential to do your research before getting injections—and after them too! Here are some dos and don’ts for making sure you get quality results:

Do your research.

The first step in choosing a suitable filler is to be informed about what it is, how it works and what results to expect. This will help you better understand your options and any potential risks involved with each procedure.

Do see a specialist.

You should see a specialist for injectables. Dermal fillers are medical products, so it’s essential to go to someone trained in their safe use and application. A dermatologist or plastic surgeon can help you determine which filler is suitable for you and your needs and what results can be expected from each type of product. 

They also have access to the latest technology and products on the market today–which means they can recommend what’s best for you based on your age, skin type and other factors that might affect results (such as smoking).

Ask about your specialist’s experience working with the treatment you’re considering.

A good dermal filler specialist should be able to provide you with information about their training and experience. You can also ask them to show you before-and-after photos of their past clients. If not, ask for references from other patients who have had similar procedures done by the same doctor.

Your doctor must be well qualified to give you realistic expectations about how much improvement can be expected from treatment and what kind of results are possible in your case–especially since some people may need more than one procedure over time for optimal results.

Do ask questions before any injections start and during.

  • It would help if you asked about the procedure, what will happen and how long it will take.
  • It would be best if you also asked about the risks involved with dermal fillers.
  • It would be best if you also asked about the recovery time after getting your filler injections done and what to expect.

Ask about how much each treatment costs, so you know how many treatments you need to get rid of your wrinkles or lips and if they are within your budget before committing to them!

You can have serious side effects, including an allergic reaction, infection and blindness.

Dermal Filler Do’s and Don’ts for Wrinkles, Lips and More, there are some risks involved–especially if you need to be more careful about where you get your filler done.

Dermal fillers, including hyaluronic acid (HA), collagen and fat grafting, come in different forms. They’re injected into areas where volume has decreased over time due to gravity or aging processes, such as losing fat cells in the face after menopause. 

Dermal fillers are supposed to help restore that lost volume by filling out hollow spaces under your skin so that it looks fuller and more youthful again.

Do choose your provider carefully.

When choosing a provider, please make sure a professional body accredits them. You can look them up on the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery website and other organizations like it. 

If you’re looking for someone who specializes in dermal fillers and wants to learn more about their experience with your area of concern, ask them about their qualifications and training.

An excellent place to start is asking what products they use–if they need clarification, I’d recommend going elsewhere.

The Don’t’s in Getting Dermal Fillers

Don’t expect the same product to work for everything.

The first thing you should know is that different dermal fillers have different strengths and weaknesses. For example, some products are better for specific body parts than others; some are better for particular skin types.

If you’re looking for a product that will work for everything (wrinkles, lips and more), then only expect one filler to fit some. It’s best to choose two or three different types of fillers based on what you want to achieve and what results they provide–and then find an expert injector who can help determine which combination will yield the best results.

Don’t assume a product is FDA-approved because it’s available at a spa or salon.

It can be tempting to assume that a product is FDA-approved because it’s available at a spa or salon. But just because something is available doesn’t mean it’s approved, so research the product before you get injected with anything.

There are many types of fillers, and they all have different uses. While the FDA has approved some, others still need to, and some may never be supported (because they’re unsafe). So always check with your doctor if you want injections done on yourself or someone else.

Refrain from assuming cheaper is better.

While it’s true that some of the more expensive products are FDA approved, not all of them are. Refrain from assuming that just because a product is more expensive than another brand, it will last longer or be better for your needs. Many dermatologists say there’s no difference between the cheaper brands and their pricier counterparts.

In addition to this fact, many people believe that when it comes to fillers and injections in general (both dermal fillers as well as Botox), quality matters less than technique–and where both come together is with experience: an experienced injector will give you better results than one who isn’t used to working with these types of procedures regularly.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions about what happens if you’re unsatisfied with the results or develop complications after getting injected.

If you need help with what to expect:

  1. Ask your doctor.
  2. Ask about how long it will take for your wrinkle filler to kick in and how long it should last.
  3. If you develop complications after getting injected, ensure you know who to contact and what kind of follow-up care is required.

Both parties involved in an injection procedure–the patient and their doctor–need to be satisfied with the results before moving forward with another treatment session or additional treatments altogether.


If you’re ready to go ahead with dermal fillers, make sure that you do your research, seek a specialist and ask questions before any injections start. It’s worth taking these steps to ensure you’re safe and happy with the outcome.
