Common Myths and Misconceptions about Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid Dermal Fillers are among the most popular aesthetic procedures and one of the most convenient alternatives to some surgical procedures. Some of the reasons for this popularity are the following:

1. Safe and Predictable

Since Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance already found in the body, they are considered safe and biocompatible. The risk of an allergic reaction or other adverse effects is low, and the results are predictable. Also, the doctor can always do more touch-ups until the patient is fully satisfied with the result.

2. Wide range of options

The development of new clinical studies, along with the advancement of the technology, has resulted in products with a variety of diverse concentrations and formulations that allow doctors to use different products to tackle areas of the body and the face. This makes it easier for patients to find an ideal treatment for their needs.

3. Minimal Downtime

HA dermal fillers are a non-surgical procedure that can be completed in a relatively short amount of time. After the session, the patient can return to their usual routine, always following their doctor's recommendations.

4. Revitalize the skin

Hyaluronic acid is known for its exceptional ability to attract and retain moisture. When injected as a filler, it helps hydrate the skin, improving its overall moisture levels. This hydration boost results in plumper, smoother, and more supple skin.

Despite this popularity and knowledge about HA dermal fillers, many myths and assumptions exist about hyaluronic acid fillers. In this article, we will break them down for you:

1. Hyaluronic acid  fillers will make you look unnatural: FALSE.

This is a very common concern, especially for those people who haven’t experienced a treatment with dermal fillers. The truth is, when administered by a skilled and experienced professional, dermal fillers can achieve natural-looking results. The key is choosing a qualified practitioner who understands facial anatomy and can tailor the treatment to your needs. Results are subtle and natural, but people will probably compliment how your good your skin looks.

2. If I get lip fillers, everybody around me will notice: FALSE

Although we might have seen some dramatic results with lip fillers, that does not mean that they can’t look natural. Make sure that your doctor is very experienced with this procedure and maybe you can ask about some reference of previous cases. 

3. If I don’t like the result, there is nothing I can do: FALSE

Hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase,which is an injectable enzyme that breaks down the hyaluronic acid molecules in the filler. When injected into the treated area, it gradually dissolves the HA filler, allowing it to be absorbed by the body. This process helps reverse the filler's effects and restore the area to its previous appearance.

4. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are unsafe: FALSE

It is crucial to choose a reputable practitioner and discuss any potential allergies or medical conditions before undergoing any treatment with HA fillers. HYAcorp is a hyaluronic filler brand used for the body and face and manufactured by BioScience GmbH, a German pioneer with more than 20 years of experience in the industry. HYAcorp fillers have been CE mark since 2006, and each batch is tested to ensure low levels of endotoxin.

5. It is better to use Hyaluronic acid than Botulinum Toxin: FALSE

The choice between hyaluronic acid fillers and botulinum toxin depends on individual goals, concerns, and the specific areas being treated. Both options have distinct mechanisms of action and provide different benefits. Although they have different functions and serve different purposes, they can be used in a complementary way to offer the best results.

6.They not only add volume but also give you a healthier appearance: TRUE

As we age, our skin loses volume and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid fillers help restore lost volume by adding structure and support to the skin. They can be used to fill in wrinkles, fine lines, and deep folds, giving the skin a more youthful and refreshed look.

7. Hyaluronic acid fillers are only for the face: FALSE

Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly associated with facial rejuvenation but can also be used for various body enhancement purposes. HYAcorp fillers for the body can be used to enhance, reshape and add volume to the hips or buttocks. They are also used for calf definition and hand rejuvenation. They have the ability to smooth the surface of skin irregularities such as cellulite, achieving an improved appearance.
