Debunking Dermal Filler Myths With David Ghozland
When it comes to skincare and treatments, there are a lot of different procedures out there, and some of them carry a lot of negativity. One of those types of treatments is dermal fillers. There are a lot of myths and misconceptions surrounding them, and it is important to note that these fillers deserve to have those misconceptions cleared up! Today we are going to talk about some of these dermal filler myths and why they are just myths – so that you can learn some honest facts about these treatments and how they can help you.
Myth #1: Dermal Fillers Cause Bruising and Swelling in the Area
One misconception about dermal fillers is that they cause a lot of bruising and swelling in the area of the injections. While it is common to think that there could be some swelling and bruising at the site, it isn’t really all that common. We seem to think that just because an area is receiving an injection, it will cause bruising and redness – but if administered correctly, this is hardly noticeable if it even occurs. While there can often be some swelling, using a cold compress on the area can reduce it quickly.
Myth #2: The Results Aren’t That Noticeable
Many people who hear about dermal fillers make an assumption that the results of the fillers won’t even be that noticeable. This is entirely untrue; in fact, it is quite the opposite. If administered by a professional, these types of fillers offer accurate results that can often really surprise both the patient and those who see the finished work. Good fillers really do make a difference!
Myth #3: Fillers Don’t Look Natural
Another concern, and one of the biggest misconceptions surrounding dermal fillers, is that they won’t appear to be natural. Many people may be concerned that they will look overdone and completely unnatural, which couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, dermal fillers that are done by a trained professional will look completely natural and fit your face and body type perfectly.
Myth #4: Repeated Treatments Will Be Necessary Closer Together
While it is important to know that dermal fillers will actually need to be repeated, it is also necessary to know that just because you receive a dermal filler, does not mean that you have to get them closer together. Dermal fillers last anywhere from six to eight months, depending on the filler you choose to get and the location, so expect to need to get a repeat procedure after that time. However, you will not need to get repeated treatments closer together just because you received one.
Myth #5: Salons Offer Fillers For a Better Price
Finally, myth number five, and an important one that needs to be debunked. Many people believe that salons offer dermal fillers for a better price than medical professionals. While you might find that in some areas, it is vital to understand that many who work in salons are not exceptionally trained as well as they should be, or they do not have enough experience with the fillers.
