The Three Most Common Filler Fears
Patients that don’t have prior experience with fillers often have fears about treatment, such as lip filler pain. For some people, having a friend or family member share their personal experience with the treatment eases their concerns. If you haven’t had the treatment or heard about first-hand experience with it, these 3 explanations will help you overcome your fears. Also, the team here at Timeless is always happy to discuss your concerns.
Common Fears Patients Have About Fillers
Unnatural or Overdone Filler Appearance
The number one fear patients have about being treated with filler is that they will look unnatural or overdone. We understand this fear. We have me excellent filler before and after photos on our website that showcase our patients. Or better yet, to see our work in person, feel free to stop into our office and meet our staff. Almost all staff have had filler, and usually more than two syringes. Judge for yourself and see we don’t look overdone or unnatural. In fact, most patients don’t realize that even our 30 year old employees have had a bit of filling. Patients just think the staff looks beautiful – you can look your best too!
Painful Filler Injections
Another concern patients have about filler is their fear that it will be painful. If you’ve had Botox®, filler does not hurt much more. To help patients relax and feel more prepared for the injection, we use ice, have topical anesthetic available, use injectables that incorporate local anesthetics and provide a calm, caring environment. Our medical staff have a gentle touch and are extremely skilled injectors. Even the local representative, who taught filler injections, could not believe how relatively painless the procedure was when he had it at Timeless!
The Cost of Fillers
If you think the cost of fillers is something to fear, think again. Many of the fillers last longer than one year, some of them having a life that extends to two years. After the first filler treatment, most subsequent treatments have a lower price point and are just used to keep the effects of what has already been achieved. Compared to the cost of other treatments, filler is often longer lasting and cost effective over the course of treatment.
