If you’ve ever wondered what you might look like with fuller lips or plumper, smoother skin, facial fillers might be the treatment for you. Fillers use injectable gels to restore or add volume to the face and lips, and are a popular option if you’re looking for a more youthful and smoother look. At Transform, our practitioners use JUVÉDERM® fillers, which are made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in your body.
There are a lot of myths out there about fillers, but we’re here to help you sort fact from fiction. If you’ve been considering facial fillers, read on to discover the most common myths and learn the truth about the treatment.
MYTH 1: Fillers Are Painful
We all have different levels of pain tolerance, but the likelihood is that you’ll find the sensation of JUVÉDERM® fillers as nothing more than a slight pinch! JUVÉDERM® facial fillers also contain lidocaine, a type of anaesthetic, which can help to reduce any uncomfortable sensations you might feel during the treatment.
MYTH 2: Fillers Look Unnatural
A lot of people associate fillers with what they consider unflattering, over-the-top results they’ve seen on reality TV but, in fact, professional, high-quality fillers can give you natural-looking results you’re striving for. Before your treatment, a qualified practitioner will evaluate your face and goals to ensure results that you’ll be happy with. JUVÉDERM® facial fillers also use patented technology to integrate with the tissue under your skin for a natural look and feel on the outside.
MYTH 3: One Size Fits All
Everyone has different goals, which is why there isn’t just one facial filler formula to suit everyone. After all, you want to look like you, not like everyone else! To achieve results that are unique to you, our experts will work with you to create a tailored JUVÉDERM® treatment plan, whether you want to plump, smooth, lift, or define.
MYTH 4: I Have To Keep Coming Back
The results of facial fillers are temporary, but the treatment doesn’t require as much maintenance as you might think. Results with JUVÉDERM® can last 9-24 months, depending on which treatment you’ve chosen and the area treated. Discuss your treatment plan and goals with your JUVÉDERM® expert and they can advise you when it comes to planning your return appointment.
MYTH 5: Anyone Can Inject Fillers
Though you might see adverts and posts on social media that suggest otherwise, JUVÉDERM® is a medical procedure and you should only receive treatment from a qualified practitioner. Seeing a qualified, licensed practitioner is important, as they can not only give you the best results, but they are also trained in the safety protocols of the treatment.
