The most common myths about Dermal Fillers

The most obvious and visually apparent part of the aging process is when our skin begins to wrinkle, sag and crease. While these changes are inevitable, it doesn’t mean they are usually so welcome. These days in the age of such massive social media use causing growing competition to stand out and a high value placed by many socially on appearance in society many people have a desire to maintain a youthful look. This leads to many women and a growing amount of men in the search for an effective and safe solution to dealing with aging skin. Dermal fillers are a procedure designed to deal with rejuvenating and treat issues that can be resolved or improve the look by enhancing or adjusting balance, symmetry, contours and much more provided it is something that can be assisted by the addition of volume. This is a non-surgical and minimally invasive solution for many peoples aesthetic concerns that are gaining popularity among patients hoping to make some cosmetic changes without any serious surgical procedures or things that can’t easily be undone. While more and more patients are showing interest in this procedure, there’s still a lot of myths and misconceptions about dermal fillers. Let’s look at four common ones and maybe dispell a few of them for you.

1. Anti wrinkle injections are the same as Dermal Fillers

Since dermal fillers and botox can be used on some of the same conditions, it doesn’t mean they work for all or in the same way to treat those that do cross over. It’s common for people just to think injectables in the face is all just Botox but that is far from true. The big difference is dermal fillers adds volume, botox prevents muscle activity in the treated area. Using Botox to relax muscles in the treatment area also relaxes fine lines and wrinkles in certain areas that are more visual due to the underlying muscles. Dermal fillers fill out areas that are losing hydration, fat, collagen and wrinkling filling in that material that has reduced over time causing wrinkles and similar issues such as hollows (something botox won’t help with). While they can be used to complement each other many people prefer dermal fillers as there are many options to choose from with products getting more diverse all the time with various traits to suit patient’s needs. Many even find the chances provided by dermal fillers look more “natural” looking results though this is often from seeing people who overindulged in Botox in the media.

2. Dermal Fillers will restrict facial movement

As people often assume dermal fillers are Botox, there is the assumption that they can result in a frozen look or loss of facial expression as we see from time to time in aging celebrities who go overboard with procedures. However, dermal fillers can’t have this effect as they do not affect the muscles and in turn, have no restriction or cause any reduction in facial movement at all, leaving patients as expressive as they were before. Amazing natural looking results are possible with dermal fillers when you work with a qualified and skilled professional to plan and do the procedure.

3. They are only good for wrinkles

Although a frequent use and commonly requested thing to treat with dermal fillers are wrinkles be they moderate or severe, there are many other uses for them. In reality, they can be used to effectively and often impressively treat or enhance numerous issues or acheive numerous desired outcomes such as hollow cheeks or under-eyes, weaker jawlines, chin issues, lip issues (extremely popular at the moment) and so much more. They can be an excellent investment when it comes to improving your appearance.

4. Dermal Fillers don’t last long

Many people are mistaken in the belief that the results are only really short lived and are not worth the time, inconvenience or expense. While some fillers may only last a few months, many are quite long lasting the average range being six months to a year depending on the product used for hyaluronic acid based fillers. There is some other slower to break down fillers that can last as long as two to five years.
