How long does it take for dermal fillers to have the best results?
Hi. I recently went for dermal fillers for some dents on my face due to kenalog shots. The Dr used Belotero for the fillers. It is the 6th day since I had my fillers done. I now have a dent that seems to look worse after I had the fillers done. I thought fillers are supposed to have immediate effects? Thank you!
Thank you for your question. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Belotero should have an immediate effect after the injection.
The best result is typically seen 2 to 4 weeks after injection as it takes time for the product to integrate into your tissue.
As a result, most doctors will review their customers 2 to 3 weeks after filler injection to make sure everything is good.
Your doctor might have under filled your dents and sometimes a little touch up will be needed. Go back for a review and consult your injector. It will also be helpful if you can show a picture of the treated areas. All the best!

Superficial filling of dermal depressions will yield positive results immediately actually. I have used Belotero Soft / Balance before for filling superficial lines, wrinkles and dents . The result is immediately seen.
Do follow up closely with your attending doctor for a detailed review.
