There are many existing myths about anti-aging solutions that confuse consumers. This is even more especially true for injectable treatments. In order to dispel some of this confusion, we have compiled the top 4 myths that consumers are faced with when considering injectables or fillers.
Myth #1: Everyone will immediately know that you have used injectables or fillers. When injections are done correctly by an experienced physician, you should look rejuvenated and not appear to have anything done.
Myth #2: Injectables and dermal fillers do the same thing. There is a difference between getting fillers and injectables. Dermal fillers are injected into an area, filling wrinkles and creases with a substance that eliminates the appearance of wrinkles. This provides volume in areas such as the cheeks and lips. On the other hand, is injected into an area, paralyzing the muscle that causes repetitive wrinkles, thus eliminating wrinkle appearance.
Myth #3: I’ll look “shocked” or “frozen”. These procedures will not impact your face’s ability to show emotion. While any expression that may furrow your brow may be diminished due to the injections, your face does not become immobilized.
Myth #4: Fillers are painful. New fillers are often combined with ingredients to numb the treatment area. Some fillers have an ingredient that helps reduce pain to such an extent that many patients report little to no discomfort during their treatment.
