Dermal Filler Myths Busted

Have you been thinking about getting Scottsdale dermal fillers, but worried that you may develop that “frozen” appearance? If so, don’t be. That’s just one of the many myths that have been created and spread about dermal fillers and injectables. Dermal fillers are an excellent way to rejuvenate your appearance without the need to go under the knife. To help ease your mind a bit, we’ve busted the top three myths about dermal fillers in Scottsdale that may be deterring you from visiting Parson Skin Center.

Myth #1: Dermal Fillers and Botox Freeze Your Face

This is probably everyone’s biggest fear when considering dermal fillers for the first time. This is definitely not true when you entrust your care in the hands of a highly-skilled and experienced nurse injector such as the team at Parson Skin Center. When the proper filler is administered correctly, you’ll simply walk away looking refreshed (not to mention, younger). A skilled injector knows which filler to use for your particular needs, such as Juvederm or Restylane to add volume to sunken cheeks. They will also know exactly where and how deep to inject along with how much solution to use.

Myth #2: All Dermal Fillers Do The Same Thing

Definitely not! There are a variety of fillers and injectables on the market that all have a particular purpose based on their specific ingredients and formulation. By far the most popular injectable is Botox. Made of botulinum toxin, Botox is a neuromodulator that works differently than other fillers and injectables. It actually relaxes the muscles that are responsible for causing those deep wrinkles around your eyes and along your forehead. Most other fillers are hyaluronic-based including the Restylane family of fillers which bind to water molecules within your skin to help plump up the lips and fill in lines and wrinkles.

Myth #3: Dermal Fillers Hurt

The great thing about dermal fillers in Scottsdale is that along with being non-surgical, they are quick and painless. If you do not like needles or are sensitive, we can apply a numbing cream prior to injection. Most fillers today have a type of anesthetic mixed into their solution to begin with so to prevent any possible discomfort.
