What can I expect when getting a facial filler?

Before the injection is administered, the area will be cleaned and prepped for the procedure. You may be given a topical anesthetic to numb the area. Then, a precise amount of filler will be injected beneath the skin. Most patients receive about one syringe of the facial filler per visit. Your appointment can take anywhere from 15-60 minutes, depending on the area of the face that’s being treated.
