Myths About Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available in Tampa and beyond. Many types of fillers are available for wrinkles, thinning lips, and lost volume in the skin. But, despite their popularity, there are many myths surrounding dermal fillers.

We’re here to debunk these common myths and help you determine if dermal fillers are right for you. 

Myth #1: They’re Not Noticeable. 

One common misconception is that dermal fillers don’t produce noticeable results. In truth, dermal fillers have been thoroughly tested and approved to noticeably improve the appearance of wrinkles, lost skin volume, and other aesthetic concerns. Your provider can personalize your treatment to make the results more subtle or dramatic, according to your preferences. 

Myth #2: Dermal Fillers Look Unnatural. 

While some people think that dermal fillers aren’t noticeable, others fear that they’ll appear unnatural. In truth, as long as the filler is injected properly, the results will appear natural. 

Select an experienced provider, like a member of the team at Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness, to ensure that the optimal amount of filler is injected in the proper location. 

Myth #3: They’re Irreversible. 

Another common myth is that dermal fillers are irreversible. In reality, most hyaluronic acid fillers can be reversed with hyaluronidase within several days of the initial injections. 

Myth #4: Fillers Stretch Out the Skin. 

Some people worry that dermal fillers will stretch out their skin. Truthfully, when dermal fillers are injected properly, they subtly volumize the skin without stretching or weakening it. In fact, many fillers can gradually stimulate collagen production to improve the skin’s elasticity. 

Myth #5: Injectables Are Painful.

A common worry among patients is that filler injections are painful. However, most fillers are formulated with a numbing solution to eliminate any discomfort. Your provider may also offer a topical numbing cream if you’re concerned about the injections.
