Four common myths about dermal fillers

Dermal FillersDermal fillers are one of the most effective ways for Phoenix, AZ area patients to address fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. Some dermal fillers are also used to plump the lips or add volume to the cheeks. Most of these injectables provide immediate results and ensure months of improvement. However, many patients avoid asking their dermatologist about using dermal fillers, and may have a number of questions about treatment. Below are XXX common myths heard by Dr. Toni C. Stockton of Stockton Dermatology:

Dermal fillers give you “duck lips.”

With dermal fillers, the team of Stockton Dermatology wants to address imperfections of the lips with augmentation solutions, but not in a way that causes over-injection and noticeable cosmetic treatments. Instead, with continued training and expert injection, our team can provide natural-looking results that do not look like “duck lips.”

Dermal fillers hurt.

While most injections will result in some pain, our team will utilize topical numbing ointment on the treatment area to ensure patients are comfortable with their dermal filler injections.

Dermal fillers make it look obvious that cosmetic work has been done.

This is only the case if patients are looking for dramatic, noticeable results. In most situations, our patients want to achieve a natural enhancement that others might not notice immediately. The more filler injected, the more noticeable the changes will be.

Dermal fillers need to be done regularly.

Dermal fillers are not meant to be a permanent solution to fine lines and wrinkles. However, they can last several months before reinjection is needed to maintain the results. If patients are seeking a longer-lasting option, they may be referred to a plastic surgery to discuss surgical options. Most patients who are dealing with mild to moderate aging concerns are best suited for dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectables available at Stockton Dermatology.
