It’s time for everybody’s favorite beauty quiz! This time, we’re talking fillers. How much do you know about products like Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse?

Fillers: Fact or Fiction

Fact or Fiction: Fillers work, but you’ve got to have a high pain tolerance!

FICTION! The myth that injectable treatments are inherently painful is just that…a myth. Skilled clinicians, such as the team at SkinCenter, have tools, training and techniques they use to help minimize any discomfort associated with treatment. Additionally, some products, including Restylane L and Juvederm UltraPlus XC contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, in their formulas. You can have the beautiful, smooth skin you want without pain!

Fact or Fiction: Fillers have improved & you don’t have to worry about your face being ‘frozen’.

FACT! Despite all the jokes, treatment with today’s cosmetic fillers – and even neuromodulators like Botox! – can smooth your complexion and leave you with your natural facial expressions. You’ll still look like yourself after treatment – just a less-stressed, more youthful version of yourself.

Fact or Fiction: Fillers take forever to work.

FICTION! Some fillers do work by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production systems, which means it can take longer to get the full effect. Other treatments, including Restylane and Radiesse, use different methods to achieve their results. This means their impact shows almost immediately – a very satisfying experience with instant gratification.

Fact or Fiction: You can get fillers anywhere now!

While this may be technically true, the fact is that you’re going to want to work with skilled, licensed medical professionals to administer your filler treatment. The staff at a spa or salon may be wonderful people, but there’s no guarantee that they have the in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy necessary to competently administer facial injections that yield the results you want. Experience and expertise matter. Discover why so many people choose SkinCenter for their filler treatments. Schedule your consultation today!
