How much downtime can I expect after perlane (dermal fillers) injections? Will there be things i can't do for a while after getting perlane (dermal fillers)? For how long?

.

There : There is no real down time with fillers. A few precutions: since the material is pliable for several hours, you do not want to sleep on your face for a night; don't scratch area for rest of the day: and avoid prolong sun exposure for first few days or until redness disappears. With all injectibles, there is the possibilty of bruising. ...Read more

How long does the pain last after radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? I've heard that the radiesse (dermal fillers) shots hurt a lot in your cheeks. Will it go away fast? .

How long does the pain last after radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? I've heard that the radiesse (dermal fillers) shots hurt a lot in your cheeks. Will it go away fast?

.

If : If you get no numbing, then yes, they hurt, a lot! and, yes, the pain goes away, almost immediately. Ice helps greatly. I have never had a patient complain of pain after the filler was placed. The placement of the filler is uncomfortable, that is why we numb you first. I only use topical anesthetic to do the fillers. I have come to find that dental injections hurt much more than doing fillers with topical only. I leave it on for at least 10 minutes to allow it to "sink in". There is only one filler injection that i dental numb for and that is filling lips. Even with those, I have had no pain reported post injection. I refuse to use any filler with anesthetic for 2 reasons: 1. Putting the needle in hurts, not after it is removed, 2. It takes up 20% of the syringe volume and it dissolves over the next hour or so. This creates a false reading on the filler placed. ...Read more

I : I advise my patients to hold on exercise for one day after injections with fillers such as radiesse (dermal fillers).

How much bruising can I expect after radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? Will i be able to cover any post-raidesse bruising with makeup? .

How much bruising can I expect after radiesse (dermal fillers) injections? Will i be able to cover any post-raidesse bruising with makeup? 

.

The : The level of bruising after facial filler injection is quite variable. Some patients don't have any bruising at all while others may develop some. Either way, the bruising should resolve after about 2 weeks. Avoiding blood thinner products around the time of your procedure (ideally 10 days beforehand) can help prevent this, but it may still happen regardless. The face has a robust blood supply. This helps a lot with the healing in the area, but it does make it easier to develop bruising. ...Read more

Can i inject cyanocobalamin today and then inject methylcobalamin the day after tomorrow?

Can i inject cyanocobalamin today and then inject methylcobalamin the day after tomorrow?

Why do that?: If your physician recommended it to be done this way i would ask them for their reasoning. Otherwise, i don't see the logic in doing 2 separate injections of cobalamin as you suggest. I would choose one formulation and provide my patient with a single injection with the proper amount i wanted them to receive and be done. ...Read more
