We’re here to set the record straight and debunk three common medical cosmetic myths that may be causing confusion. Let’s dive in and uncover the truth about these myths, so you can make informed decisions about your cosmetic treatments.
Myth 1: Dermal Fillers Leave the Skin Saggy When They Wear Off
One common misconception about dermal fillers is that when they wear off, they will leave the skin looking saggy. However, this is a myth. Dermal fillers are typically made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that provides volume and plumpness to the skin. These fillers can last up to 2 years or longer and when they eventually wear off, the skin returns to its natural state without any lasting sagging. In fact, dermal fillers can actually stimulate collagen production in the treated area, which can help improve the overall quality and elasticity of the skin over time.
Myth 2: Laser Hair Removal Can’t Be Done on Darker Skin Tones
Another common misconception is that laser hair removal is not suitable for individuals with darker skin tones. However, this is a myth. While it’s true that certain lasers may not be safe for darker skin tones due to the risk of pigmentation changes or burns–with the proper settings and professional laser equipment you can achieve great results with any skin tone!
It’s important to choose a reputable medical spa or clinic with experienced practitioners who can select the appropriate laser for your skin type and customize the treatment accordingly.
Myth 3: Botox Injections Are Painful
Many people associate Botox injections with pain, but this is a myth. Botox injections are typically well-tolerated and relatively painless. The needles used for Botox injections are very fine, and the treatment itself is quick, often taking just a few minutes. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or a slight pinching sensation during the injection, but this is usually brief and tolerable. Additionally, numbing creams or ice can be applied before the treatment to minimize any discomfort.
