Everything You Need To Know Before Having Your First Filler Treatment

Filler treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years as a non-surgical way to enhance facial features and improve signs of aging. However, if you’re new to the world of fillers, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. It’s important to do your research and understand what the treatment entails, as well as how to prepare for it and take care of yourself afterward.

Choosing a qualified and experienced doctor is key to achieving natural-looking results that meet your goals. In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know before having your first filler treatment.

1. Choose a Qualified and Experienced Doctor

The first step in preparing for your filler treatment is finding a qualified, experienced doctor specializing in cosmetic treatments. Look for a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Golosow, who has extensive experience with filler injections. You can also ask for recommendations from friends or family members who have undergone similar procedures.

It’s essential to choose a doctor who listens to your needs and concerns and offers personalized treatment plans based on your unique features and goals. During your consultation, make sure to ask about their experience, and credentials and ask to see before and after photos of previous patients.

2. Understand the Types of Fillers Available

There are several types of fillers available, each designed for a specific purpose. The most common types of fillers include hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. These are used to add volume to the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and enhance facial features like the lips and cheeks.

There are many different types of Juvederm and Restylane, such as Restylane-L lip filler and Restylane Lyft for cheek augmentation. Dr. Golosow will explain all your options at your consultation to determine the right filler(s) for your individual treatment plan.

3. Prepare for the Procedure

Once you’ve chosen a doctor and type of filler, it’s important to prepare for your treatment. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for your appointment, but there are a few general guidelines to follow. Avoid blood thinners, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, for at least a week before your appointment. You should also avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before your appointment. Finally, be sure to discuss any allergies or medical conditions with your doctor before your treatment.

Schedule a Consultation

Getting your first filler treatment can be an exciting experience, but it’s important to do your research and understand the process.  If you’re interested in getting a filler treatment, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lorraine Golosow.
