Do you feel as though your skin looks “tired” all the time? Do you want to rejuvenate your face with a treatment that doesn’t need to be redone every month? Then you should consider trying injectable dermal fillers! When done right, you can’t go wrong with this procedure as it adds volumes to any part of your face to make it look more youthful. Soften lines, smooth out creases, you name it. You may have heard a few misconceptions about dermal fillers, but we’re here to clear those up and tell you everything you need to know about this treatment.

Myth: Botox is a Filler

Sorry, but that’s false. Botox and similar neurotoxins work to weaken the muscles in your face that cause wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are soft tissue fillers that are primarily used to add volume to hollow areas of your face. You can get thick, medium, or thin dermal fillers to address certain areas of your face.

Myth: They All Look Fake

It’s true that when they aren’t inserted properly, fillers can look fake. However, when you visit a reputable skincare clinic like Chellsey MediSpa, you’ll get dermal fillers that end up looking natural and gorgeous. With any cosmetic treatment, you need to go to an experienced professional who knows what they’re doing in order to get the best results. This isn’t a procedure to cheap out on if you want good results.

Myth: It’s Painful

The most you’ll feel from getting dermal implants is mild discomfort. However, some fillers are created with numbing medication, which will drastically lower any discomfort felt during the procedure.

Myth: It Will Bruise Badly

Nope, the most you’ll experience from dermal fillers is possibly some minor bruising and swelling at the site. This means you’ll be able to get back to your normal routine in no time. Any bruising and swelling are likely to occur around the eyes or mouth, which can be reduced with the use of a cold compress. You can conceal it with makeup to make it completely unnoticeable.

Myth: It’s Permanent

If you find that you’re not happy with the results of the treatment, you can have them reversed. Most dermal fillers used today are made from hyaluronic acid. Using hyaluronidase, enzymes that break up hyaluronic acid, the treatment can be easily undone.

Myth: You’ll Need Frequent Touch-Ups

Over time, dermal fillers will break down thanks to the enzymes within your body. However, depending on the specific type of filler used and the location it’s been used on, the treatment can last anywhere from six months to two years without needing touch-ups.
