Busted! Don’t Believe These Myths About Botox® And Fillers!

By demė |


Whether you’re tired of wrinkled skin or aspire to change your look, a nurse injector can help you redefine your features. Nurse injectors are familiar with the musculature of the face and have the experience and training required to select the right product and execute the procedure efficiently.

Although Botox® and fillers are a great way to get refreshed, young-looking skin and boost self-confidence, there are a few myths and misconceptions surrounding cosmetic injectables that make people apprehensive about them. There are also several stories about poorly executed procedures, which add to people’s apprehensions. 

To set the record straight and help you get your desired look, demė has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about Botox® and fillers.

Myth 1: If I get Botox®, I’m going to look unnatural and frozen.

It is a common belief that getting Botox® injections makes you look unnatural and frozen. People often think that others will be able to tell that they’ve done something with their skin and so they are scared to try. On the contrary, when done well, injectables make you look refreshed, rested, and young.

Myth 2: Having your lips done makes you look like a duck.

There are two reasons why people end up with duck lips, one, the filler was injected in the wrong areas and or with a poor technique, and two, it is the patient’s desired look! The truth is that lips have many desirable aesthetic possible results. Some people desire a subtle, more hydrated look, some people want a fuller pout, while others want a noticeably larger and full lip result. When done by a master injector, whatever the goal result is, your lips will look gorgeous and natural.

Myth 3: Fillers and Botox® are poisons.

Firstly, Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau® are all FDA approved medications called neuromodulators. These medications safely and effectively reduce muscle contractions, which consequently reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine static lines in the face, neck, and decollete. Botox® has been used medically in the US since 1977 and was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2002. According to Robyn J. Berger, Nurse Injector at demė, “Neuromodulators are a purified protein that puts your muscles in a temporary time out and only lasts for three to five months.”

Modern fillers are made out of Hyaluronic Acid or HA, which is found naturally in the body, in your skin, joints, and eyes. The HA used in Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and other dermal fillers is a formulation based on the HA found in the body with the help of NASHA™ or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid production process. It is responsible for tissue repair and restores moisture and pliancy where it has diminished and also brings a healthy fullness to the area injected.
