Deconstructing Myths: Unveiling the Truth about Med-Aesthetics Treatments

When it comes to aesthetical enhancements, it seems as if the world is full of misinformation and misconceptions. Elite Aesthetics aims to debunk these prevalent myths, especially when it comes to Botox, Fillers, Injectables, and Med-Aesthetics offered in our Med Spa in NYC.

The Myth: Botox Freezes Your Face

A common misconception about Botox is that it can freeze your face, making it impossible to showcase any range of emotions. In reality, Botox halts muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles, but when administered correctly, it leaves enough freedom to express organic, natural emotions.

Secondly, there’s a myth that once you start getting Botox, you can’t stop. This isn’t true. If you decide to stop Botox treatments, your skin will gradually return to the state it was before the treatments. Your face will not suddenly age rapidly or fall into a state of disrepair!

The Myth: Fillers Cause Distorted Facial Features

The media often portrays fillers as a treatment resulting in an unnaturally puffy looking face. This facade has created fear around the use of fillers in aesthetics. But fillers, when applied correctly and in moderation by a professional, do nothing more than replacing lost volume in the skin, leading to a natural, fuller appearance.

At the same time, it’s common belief that fillers are permanent. Contrarily, fillers are not permanent. Most fillers last between 6 to 18 months depending on the type of product used and the area where it is injected.

The Myth: Injectables Are Painful

The word ‘injectable’ provokes the thought of excruciating pain for many. The truth is that injectables come equipped with modern application techniques that alleviate any discomfort. Anaesthetic creams or injections are commonly used, and a lot of fillers come with lidocaine – a local anaesthetic – included in the formula.

Finally, a common myth is that aesthetic treatments only serve vanity. In fact, beasts like Botox are not only used for the cosmetic benefits- it is increasingly being used to treat other conditions like migraines, excessive sweating and certain eye conditions.


In conclusion, Med-Aesthetics treatments such as Botox, Filler, and Injectables are greatly misunderstood. It’s time we did away with the hocus-pocus that’s been clouding their true nature. Remember, the best way to understand these treatments is through professional consultation. If you abide in or around NYC, why not stop by our Med Spa to clear any other doubts and misconceptions you might have.
