Injectable treatments are not something new but they’ve definitely been gaining more popularity recently. It is generally known to be a treatment that can help you with your appearance, especially when it comes to concerns about ageing. However, there have also been various myths surrounding these treatments which many Malaysians still believe to this day.

Curious to know if any of these myths are true? Read on to find out as we debunk some of the misconceptions about injectable treatments!

 

1. You no longer need skincare if you get injectable treatments

Many people who opt to get injectable treatments tend to abandon their skincare routines for a number of reasons:

  • Thinking they don’t need skincare anymore because their skin would look amazing after each treatment
  • Hoping to save time and money by only opting for injectables and skimping on skincare

The truth is, the result of your injectable treatment can be enhanced even more with a proper skincare routine and it can also help prolong the effects of your treatment. Many dermatologists recommend incorporating the following items in your skincare to help maintain your treatment:

  • An ultra-hydrating moisturiser
  • Retinol-infused products to boost collagen
  • A reliable sunscreen that you must NEVER skip

 

2. It’s painful and requires a long healing time

Generally, injectable treatments actually fall on the lower end of the pain scale, but it would also depend on your pain tolerance towards needles. However, your doctor would definitely use an anaesthetic during the procedure to help you feel more comfortable.

As for the healing time, it is a lot shorter than you think! Doctors would usually allow you to resume your activities right away but it is advisable to wait around 48 hours before you do any intense physical activity. The side effects (such as redness, bruising or tenderness and the injection area) are also quite subtle since it is considered to be a very minimally invasive treatment.

 

3. You will become an expressionless mannequin

This is one of the most popular myths surrounding injectable treatments and it is believed to stem from the stigma surrounding botox. This is because botox is meant to relax your facial muscles to minimise the appearance of wrinkles. But the truth is, botox will only relax the muscles in the injection area, not the whole face. If you’re considering getting botox and you want to avoid getting that ‘frozen’ look, make sure you get your treatment done by a professional and credible doctor who knows how to achieve a more natural result.

 

4. You can see immediate changes after the treatment

This myth is partly true and false! It is true because you might be able to see some immediate changes to your face. However, the full result might also take a bit more time to settle. Plus, the result may also vary based on the type of treatment you’re getting. For example, with fillers and botox, you would be able to see results after a few weeks once the swelling or redness has subsided.

As for treatments such as skin boosters, you would continue to see improvements to your skin over a few months (some can last up to six months!), especially if you do a good job at maintaining a skincare routine that will further enhance your results!

 

5. Injectable treatments are only for those in their 40’s & 50’s

As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. The same rule can be applied to injectable treatments as well! 

Your body starts to lose collagen at around 26 years old. Thus, it is recommended to start these treatments when you’re approaching your 30s. By starting this treatment early, you can prevent the signs of ageing on your skin and maintain a more natural appearance instead of opting for a more dramatic change if you start the treatment when you’re older.

 

Now that we’ve dispelled some of the most popular myths surrounding injectable treatments, would you consider getting this treatment done? If you would, we’d definitely advise you to do ample research in order to know which treatment would suit you best.
