Recently, we had the pleasure of welcoming Nadine Baggott into the clinic for a discussion with Dr Tapan about dermal fillers. They filmed a Q&A video in which the doctor answered a selection of questions posed by Nadine’s followers, which can be found on her YouTube channel. Below are some examples of a selection of the topics they spoke about, from finding the right practitioner to what fillers are actually made up of.
Nadine Baggott Interview Questions
What are dermal fillers made of?
“The most common substance is called hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a sugar. There are a lot of different brands of this, but we typically use a particular brand of this HA. We just place this in parts of the face where we have lost volume to plump those areas where there is some lost support or structure.”
Can you have dermal fillers while pregnant/breastfeeding?
“I would never recommend that anybody seek treatment while pregnant or breastfeeding, and no practitioner should be treating you under those circumstances anyway.”
Can Filler Move?
“Speaking solely for the products we use, from the Juvederm Vycross range, assuming it is injected in the correct place with the correct technique it won’t move. However, it does take maybe 3-5 days to start setting and then there is a period of what we call tissue integration where it is actually starting to become part of the tissue it is injected into.
This is probably somewhere around 2-4 weeks, so what I typically advise my patients is that they can do gentle self-massage, even from the second day after treatment, but they probably want to avoid over vigorous for the first month following treatment.”
