Myth: Permanent fillers are cheaper than temporary fillers.
People tend to think it’s more cost-effective to use permanent fillers than going for temporary injectible treatments every six to twelve months. The truth is there aren’t a lot of permanent dermal fillers on the market. In fact, the FDA has approved just one permanent filler, ArteFill, which has been associated with a lot of complications. There are other non-FDA approved fillers available as well, but you should avoid them at all costs.
Permanent Filler Risks
Permanent injectable fillers have an increased risk of side-effects. This is because they are made from ingredients that cannot be broken down by the body’s natural immune system. The results are often irreversible, and any mistakes, undesired results or allergic reactions resulting from permanent dermal fillers can only be corrected through potentially disfiguring plastic surgery. Permanent fillers also tend to give women that infamous “trout pout.” Who’d want that?
Is risking permanent disfigurement along with a whole host of potential complications really worth the extra money you’d save?
You’re far better off using temporary fillers. Temporary injectables are preferred because they’re easily broken down by the body, meaning less risk of complications. And if you don’t like the way you look, temporary injectable fillers wear off. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!
Not sure which temporary injectable filler is right for you? Here’s a list of the most popular:
Botox is a revolutionary prescription medication that improves moderate to severe frown lines, forehead furrows, smoker’s lines, and crow’s feet. Botox is a great alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. It’s quick, painless, and seldom causes side effects.
Juvéderm is a revolutionary dermal filler that instantly banishes wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Juvéderm is so powerful that its results last up to a year—and after only a single treatment. Because Juvéderm’s dermal gel is smooth rather than granular, a single injection of it makes skin looks smooth, natural and youthful. This is because the unique formulation of Juvéderm’s gel promotes hydration of the skin as well as restores volume to the skin and its underlying structures.
