5 Common Myths about Cosmetic Injectables

The demand for Cosmetic Injectables is ever-rapidly growing. Studies show that individuals between the ages of 21-55 are choosing the quick and instantly effective treatments to reverse or limit the appearance of ageing and also for ‘correction’ procedures too!

BUT we’re still subject to the MANY myths and mysteries! Well, now we’re here to debunk them, once and for all!

“Your face is FROZEN after Anti-Wrinkle Injections”

As with all injectables, they’re completely bespoke and tailored to suit that client and their choosing. While some people desire a very subtle and natural look, others may request something slightly more ‘evident’. It’s simply personal preference. Both results are easily achievable when visiting a fully trained and experienced injector and all treatment expectations should be discussed in your initial consultation.

“Cosmetic Injectables are really painful, are you sure you want them?”

While some injectables don’t require a numbing treatment, others do. A professional injector will ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible by applying a Topical Anaesthetic prior to the procedure to numb the area.

“Botulinum Toxin (BTX) is for wrinkles & anti-ageing only”

Actually, it’s much greater than just anti-ageing alone. Botulinum Toxin (BTX) is a naturally purified protein, it works as a muscle relaxant to weaken contracting muscles and also ‘blocks’ sweat glands. Here’s just a few of the other ways BTX can be used: Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Bunny Lines Treatment, Excessive Sweating Treatment, Gummy Smile Correction, Dimpled Chin Treatment, Jawline Slimming & Teeth Grinding and Neck Lifting.

“Cosmetic Injectable results are permanent, have you really thought about this?”

Depending on what treatment you have, which product is used and which area is treated, will all determine how long your results last for. On average, Dermal Fillers can last between 3-9 months and Anti-Wrinkle Injectables a little less at around 3-4 months.

“You’re vain if you have Cosmetic Injectables”

When you visit a professional for Cosmetic Injectables, you will be asked for the reasons behind your visit: is it for BEAUTIFICATION or REJUVENATION purposes? Either way, whatever your intentions, you’re entitled to do whatever you feel comfortable with. If particular results embark your confidence and it is safe to do so, then you deserve to feel fabulous, it does not make you ‘vain’ or ‘fake’.
