Dermal Fillers in Chandigarh

Add suppleness and plumpness to your skin with best dermal fillers in Chandigarh performed by cosmetologist Dr. Ishaa Junejaa.
Dermal fillers or soft tissue fillers are FDA-approved injectable implants used by a certified dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon to address various skin concerns. They belong to non-surgical cosmetic procedures. The healthcare provider directly injects the dermal fillers just beneath the superficial skin- in the dermis (middle layer of the skin).

Dermal fillers can be of various types, based on how long they could last. Some fillers are temporary while some may be semi-permanent. The longevity of fillers depends upon the interlinkage between the molecules of filler ingredients. The most commonly used fillers are hyaluronic acid-based.
To know how dermal fillers in Chandigarh can add volume to your skin, consult Dr. Ishaa Junejaa today at her aesthetic clinic- Dr. Ishaa Junejaa Aesthetics.

Who Needs Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are sought-after by any adult who wishes to address early signs of skin ageing or enhance their facial features. They can be used to:

  • Increase skin volume- to augment the lips, cheeks, chin, and back of the hand
  • Correct contour deficiencies like recessed acne scars and wrinkles
  • Restore and fix lipoatrophy (facial fat loss) in HIV infected people.

The good candidates for dermal fillers are usually people who are in good general health. They are not suffering from any underlying medical conditions that could interfere with their healing. They must be having reasonable expectations from the results of the treatment. Smokers, pregnant women, and lactating women are not suitable candidates for dermal fillers.

How do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal filler is a smooth gel that works to replenish the lost hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers used at Dr. Ishaa Junejaa Aesthetics are the best dermal fillers in Chandigarh. It helps fill the lost volume of the skin. It has a water retention ability that helps keep the skin well-hydrated and moisturised. It even encourages the production of skin structural proteins- collagen and elastin which further improves skin integrity and quality. Overall, dermal fillers work to make the skin look youthful and natural-looking. 
Pre-treatment advice

  • Do not consume alcohol for at least 24 hours.
  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid intake of blood thinning medications for at least 2 weeks beforehand.
  • Avoid the use of Re-tin-A-based products for 2 days before the treatment.

What to Expect from a Dermal Fillers Treatment?

Before receiving the dermal fillers injections, the patient needs to first consult an aesthetic professional. The aesthetician thoroughly examines the skin and discusses the goals of the patients and what areas they need to enhance.

After the patient’s candidacy and choice of getting filler are confirmed, the aesthetician takes pictures of the area to be treated. They will mark the areas where the fillers will be injected. 

The aesthetic doctor first cleanses the skin properly and may apply a numbing cream or lotion to make the treatment more comfortable.

With the help of a small sterile needle, the aesthetic doctor injects a small amount of filler ingredients into the skin dermis. At this time, the patient can expect slight discomfort like a pinch or sting caused by the needle. The aesthetician may use multiple filler injections in different areas of the skin at a time. Once the contents of the filler injection are emptied into the skin, the aesthetician cleanses the skin.

The entire treatment can take a few minutes to an hour, depending on the number and size of the areas being treated.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any downtime?

Dermal fillers are not associated with extensive downtime. Most fillers do not have downtime while some may require minimal downtime. The recovery time depends on the type of filler received by the patient, the overall health of the patient, and how many areas are treated at a time. In the majority of cases, patients can resume their normal daily activities right after their treatment.

When can I expect to see desired results of filler treatment?

This varies with the type of filler used. The most commonly used fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers, which are injectable at Dr. Ishaa Junejaa Aesthetics. These are the best dermal fillers in Chandigarh and can start showing their effect on the skin within minutes of their first use. However, the peak results like its anti-aging effects can take 12 weeks to appear, only if its use is continued. You can expect to see skin improvements as long as new collagen and elastin are produced.

How long do the results of dermal fillers treatment last?

This depends upon the type of filler used and the area or concern being treated. Most filler results are temporary and require repeat treatments to maintain the desired results. Hyaluronic acid fillers last for anywhere between 4 to 12 months.

When is it safe for me to get another dermal fillers injection?

You can go for another dermal fillers treatment when the signs of skin aging re-appears on the treated skin.

What are the possible side effects of using dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers can cause temporary or/and permanent side effects. Most of the side effects are noticed shortly after receiving the treatment and are resolved in a few weeks. The common side effects include mild bruising, swelling, redness, pain, itching, rash, and tenderness. The swelling and pain of the hand treated by filler can last for months or even years. As a result, it can be difficult for a hand to perform certain activities.

If the filler injection is unintentionally administered into the blood vessels, it can block the blood supply and lead to serious consequences. But, this happens rarely. If the dermal fillers are provided by a trained and experienced aesthetic doctor, long-term and serious side effects are less likely. When an inexperienced provider injects fillers in a non-medical setting, the possible side effects could be intense swelling, discoloured skin, allergic reactions, ridges, lumps, and over-filled areas.

What breakthroughs have recent dermal fillers made?

The dermal fillers used nowadays may provide patients with more natural-looking results. If they are injected properly, the skin would get the best rejuvenated and refreshed. Today’s filler injections are less painful and long-lasting. They can help people achieve youthful lips without making them much bigger, youthful hands, an overall rested and younger-looking facial appearance, and less-visible under-eye hollows.
