What Is The Truth About Dermal Fillers?

Most people know what dermal fillers are, but do not have all the facts about the cosmetic enhancement. Misconceptions about fillers have led to reluctance from some people who want to try them. To help you determine if dermal fillers are right for you, here are some misconceptions about them and the truth.

Dermal Fillers Freezes Your Face

One of the most persistent rumors about dermal fillers is that after the procedure, your face will be frozen. The idea of losing your ability to make facial expressions can be scary. However, dermal fillers do not cause your face to freeze.

Dermal fillers are strategically used so that your natural features are enhanced. You will still be able to make natural facial expressions. In the first couple of days, you might experience some puffiness, but it quickly goes away.

You Must Keep Taking Fillers to Avoid Wrinkles Worsening

Another commonly believed misconception about dermal fillers is that if you stop getting injections, your wrinkles will be worse than they were before you had the treatment. In reality, your wrinkles will be the same as they were before you had your first dermal filler.

Dermal fillers work by blocking signals from your nerves to the muscles. The nerves send the message to your muscles to contract. When the filler is applied, the muscles are no longer getting the signal to contract and they relax. As the relax, your wrinkles soften. When you stop getting the fillers, the nerves can once again send messages to the muscles.

Men Cannot Get Dermal fillers

Although many of the people you know who are receiving dermal fillers are likely women, men can also get fillers. Men develop wrinkles the same as women and can benefit from having the fillers. This is especially true for men who are experiencing premature aging.

Dermal fillers are available to anyone who is medically cleared for the treatment and who is 18 years of age and over. If you are a man or know a man who is considering dermal fillers, a cosmetic surgeon can assess your face and explain what you can expect to see after undergoing a procedure.

A dermal filler is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available. If you are still hesitant about it, a cosmetic surgeon can discuss any other myths you have heard about the procedure and provide you with real facts that you can use to make a decision.
