Facial fillers are among the most popular treatments in the cosmetic industry. Fillers add volume to specific areas of the face to resolve age-related changes or enhance your facial features. They are a simple, non-surgical way to improve your appearance, but do they hurt?

How Facial Fillers Work

Facial fillers are injectable treatments administered just beneath the skin’s surface. Various ingredients formulate these fillers, but most are made with synthetic hyaluronic acid. The purpose of dermal fillers is to add natural-looking volume to the skin. This can resolve a variety of aesthetic concerns, including signs of aging or weak facial features.

Dermal filler injections can be used for the following cosmetic issues and more:

  • Thin lips
  • Soft jawline
  • Weak cheekbones
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Sagging skin
  • Sullen under eyes

Do Dermal Fillers Hurt?

If this is your first time having facial fillers, you may wonder what they feel like. Many clients are worried that getting fillers will hurt or be uncomfortable, and this is a valid concern, but you can rest assured that your fillers should not hurt.

A topical numbing solution will be applied to the skin before any injections are administered. This helps minimize any discomfort that could be felt during the injection. You may experience bruising and swelling after administering your injections, which can be uncomfortable for some clients. Over-the-counter pain relievers can alleviate this discomfort. Any bruising and swelling that occurs usually subsides several hours after treatment.

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive and do not require any recovery process or downtime after treatment. You can resume your normal activity immediately after having these injections placed.
