Once reserved for the A-list models chasing that picture-perfect glow, Botox® & Fillers were a beauty secret passed among the celebrities. The idea of injecting your face with a needle might have sounded a bit extreme at first. But, let’s face it, as those pesky wrinkles crept in, the dream of achieving smooth, glowy skin without the need for drastic measures became undeniably tempting. We see you! 

Botox, an FDA-approved magic wand, waves goodbye to wrinkles, unveiling a more natural and youthful version of yourself. In 2022 alone, over 4 million people jumped on the Botox bandwagon, turning it into the go-to, non-invasive treatment embraced by men and women worldwide. Filler, brought to huge popularity thanks to the ‘kylie-jenner-generation’ is known to plump skin and fill creases.

Debunking Myths About Botox and Fillers from Illume Aesthetics

Here are the common Myths and Misconceptions about Botox and Fillers

Myth 1: Botox and Fillers are only for women.

Reality: Both men and women can benefit from Botox and Fillers. These treatments are not limited to any specific gender. In fact, that’s why the term ‘Bro-Tox’ has become so commonly known in the world of aesthetics.

Myth 2: Botox and Fillers are permanent.

Reality: Botox and Fillers provide temporary results. The effects of Botox (depending on the neurotoxin used) last 3-4 months and Fillers can last 1+ years!

Myth 3: Botox and Fillers will freeze your face and make you look expressionless.

Reality: When performed by a skilled injector, Botox and Fillers can enhance your appearance while maintaining natural expressions. The goal is to achieve a refreshed, natural result without looking frozen or over-filled at all. 

Myth 4: Botox and Fillers are painful.

Reality: Discomfort during Botox and Filler treatments is usually minimal. Numbing agents can be used to further reduce any discomfort, ensuring a more comfortable experience.

Myth 5: Botox is for old people, and filler is for the younger crowd. 

Reality: WRONG! Botox is best used for preventative measures, not corrective! Because it ‘pauses’ dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movements, it’s AMAZING to start in your 20’s to keep wrinkles from ever forming! And, while filler is very popular for younger women to plump their lips, it actually has a very wide range of uses in many areas to correct sagging skin and lost volume as you age. 

Myth 6: Botox and Fillers are toxic.

Reality: While Botox is derived from botulinum toxin, it is used in highly controlled and diluted amounts for cosmetic purposes, making it safe when administered by a qualified professional. Fillers are typically made from biocompatible materials like hyaluronic acid, which are naturally created in your own body.

Myth 7: Botox and Fillers can fix all facial imperfections.

Reality: While Botox and Fillers can help with wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume, they are not suitable for correcting every facial concern. Other procedures or treatments may be more appropriate for certain aesthetic goals like correcting textural concerns or discolorations.

Myth 8: Botox and Fillers are only for the upper face.

Reality: Both of these injectables can be used just about anywhere in the face, depending on your goals and concerns. Dimpling chin? Botox! Sagging jowls? Cheek filler! It’s important to have a one-on-one consultation with an injector that understands the artistry of facial balancing so that you can achieve your goals with the best products.

Myth 9: Botox and Fillers are addictive.

Reality: Botox and Fillers do not cause physical addiction. But, you may become accustomed to your rejuvenated appearance and choose to continue treatments for long-term maintenance, which we recommend for long term results.

Myth 10: Botox and Fillers will make you look completely different.

Reality: The aim of Botox and Fillers is not to change your entire appearance but rather to enhance your natural features and address specific concerns in a subtle way.
