For all the tales about aesthetic treatments going around, take them with a pinch of salt. We’re here to bust 6 myths to help you be “woke” when it comes to such treatments.
Myth 1 – Aesthetic Treatments Are Expensive
While typical invasive aesthetic treatments do come with a hefty price tag, advancements in technology have made treatments like dermal fillers increasingly affordable. Alternatively, you can consider it as a long-term investment in yourself which is bound to pay off in many ways!
Myth 2 – No Pain, No Beauty
Painful treatments are now a thing of the past! Throw out all your misconceptions because brands are making your comfort a priority. Topical numbing creams are being commonplace and in certain Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers, lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, is used to enhance your treatment comfort, especially in more sensitive areas.
Myth 3 – Aesthetic Treatments Need To Be Repeated Often.
For treatments such as the next generation Pure Neurotoxin with Zero Complexing Proteins, the effects are prolonged if treatments are repeated just before the results wear off. Skin tightening procedures like Microfocused Ultrasound with Visualization and certain dermal filler products can even last for a period of up to 2 years. Should you decide to stop the treatment, your skin will still look youthful years onwards.
Myth 4 – Going With The Cheapest Option.
While you may be thinking of skimping on the treatments, paying peanuts might get you peanuts. Do not be afraid to visit various clinics and brands to check out what they offer and their reputation before achieving your aesthetic goals with the least amount of worries.
Myth 5 – Dermal Fillers Are Toxic To Your Body
What are dermal fillers made of exactly? Well, they’re made of hyaluronic acid (HA) – a natural component of your skin. Toxic? Definitely not! Furthermore, properties of hyaluronic acid include binding water within your skin, making dermal fillers the perfect choice for maintaining the elasticity, smoothness and volume of your skin so you can rest easy.
Myth 6 – Listening To What Friends Tell You
Take it with a pinch of salt when a friend who swears by the treatment she went for last week, bugs you to sign for that treatment. Everybody has different lifestyles, genetic and skin conditions and thus, react differently. To be sure, visit a reputable clinic and consult with a licensed medical professional to find out what is best for you.
