Myths About Dermal Fillers
Professional Tear Trough Filler Treatments in Sydney
Eager to gain a more youthful appearance? You may have been scared away from anti-ageing clinics in Sydney by horror stories of friends and family members who have undergone cosmetic surgery of some kind. You may just simply want to avoid getting it done yourself.
Many of these horror stories are merely myth. Anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers are not going to ruin your skin as much as everyone says it will. Many injectable procedures, including tear trough fillers, are quite safe to be used on the skin of your face, despite what you might hear or read. Of course, it is critical that the treatments are done by experienced and well-qualified practitioners.
Uncovering myths about dermal filler treatments
Here are the most common myths that you’re likely to hear about:
MYTH # 1: Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers work exactly the same way
Wrinkle injections Wrinkle injections are designed to weaken the muscles of the face to prevent further formation of lines in the future. Dermal filler injections fill in shallow areas and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance. They both achieve the same purpose of being wrinkle treatments, but work in entirely different ways. This is not going to get rid of wrinkles that are already there.
MYTH # 2: Dermal Filler treatments are painful
The most you will feel during a dermal filler treatment is a small pinch in the injection site, and it goes away quickly with time. If you are particularly sensitive to needles, a topical anaesthetic can be given by our Sydney professionals, in order to numb the area and minimize any discomfort.
MYTH # 3: Dermal fillers are needed every three months.
Most fillers are not known for being permanent, but the treatments themselves last much longer than three months. Most fillers can last from six months up to a year, depending on the kind of filler, the condition of the skin, and the depth of the wrinkles. Dermal and tear trough filler is known to last up to eighteen months, and the company that produces them also makes Restylane Skin Care products too, all of which we provide at our Sydney clinic.
MYTH # 4: People can tell you’ve had Dermal Fillers
The appearance after your cheek, lip or tear trough treatments is entirely dependent on the skill and experience of your cosmetic surgeon and the type of filler used. The goal is to create a natural appearance as much as possible, which requires your physician knowing how deep to inject the filler, how much should be administered, and what kind of needle to use in the procedure. An inexperienced physician may over-inject, causing the face to look completely immobile, or the cheeks can look disproportionate to each other. At Star Cosmetic, our experienced professionals use fillers that offer nine months to a year of correction, making them a top of the range product you can rely on.
MYTH # 5: You can go out into the sun
Exposure to sunlight is not recommended after a dermal or tear trough filler procedure. It can have serious, damaging effects on the skin. If you must go outside, it is highly advised that you do so with sunscreen or sufficient covering to minimize the exposure to sunlight.
H2: Knowing which filler is right for you
It’s important to know what’s true and what’s false before making an appointment at our Sydney cosmetic surgery clinic. Not every procedure is right for everyone or every kind of wrinkle that is on your face. Taking the time to figure out the difference between the various kinds of non-invasive cosmetic treatments – including tear trough filler, Restylane Skincare, lip injections and cheek filler – this can save you a lot of money and heartache in the future if you end up getting the wrong procedure.
