Botox® and dermal fillers are two of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, safely smoothing lines and wrinkles, with little to no downtime. Even so, many people are misinformed about injectables, leading to confusion and anxiety about receiving treatment.
Here’s a look at the top injectable questions we hear, along with our expert answers:
Will injectables make me look “fake?”
Reality TV bombards us with the “overdone” look—i.e., over-inflated lips that resemble duck bills and puffy, tight cheekbones. We all agree that this look is super fake. But rest assured, it takes LOTS and LOTS of dermal filler treatments to achieve this “fake” look. At CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, we pride ourselves on providing the most flattering, natural-looking injectables treatments. In the hands of experts like the injectors at CNY, dermal fillers are an easy and efficient way to subtly enhance lost facial volume and achieve a well-rested, younger-looking appearance.
Is Botox safe?
Yes! Botox is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that’s been around for decades. With little to no downtime, this super easy injectable can smooth forehead lines and crow’s feet for up to 4 months. We confidently provide this treatment to hundreds of satisfied clients every year.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Yes! Dermal fillers are FDA-approved cosmetic treatments that help to restore lost facial volume and smooth lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and cheeks, depending on the injectable. We have safely and successfully administered thousands of dermal filler injections, and we are confident you will love your results.
Are injectables painful?
While pain tolerance varies, your treatment should be no more painful than the pin-prick of a needle. For Botox treatments, we will first ask you to scrunch up your face so we can mark your frown lines and wrinkles. We will then apply quick pricks of Botox to those marked areas. The treatment takes mere minutes to administer and is surprisingly comfortable.
Dermal fillers typically take longer to administer, but are also well-tolerated. Dermal fillers help to restore lost volume and require a more nuanced approach to suit your personal facial contours. You will feel a slight stinging sensation as the dermal fillers are being administered, but this sensation is short-lived because our dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a numbing agent. Any discomfort subsides quickly once treatment is over.
