Common Intervention Fears


There is a lot of inaccurate information out there about aesthetic medicine and skincare. And I have to say, I am surprised by some of the things people believe. Here are some of the most common fears that I hear when doing consultations in my office.

Fear #1: Someone will know I had “work done.”

Why is getting this kind of work done any different than getting your hair done? It’s time to change this thinking. And seriously, no one memorizes your face. We look at each other to read expressions and moods, but rarely do people commit to memory every curve and contour. What people will notice is that you look refreshed, rested, and radiant... and not know why.

Fear #2: I will look different.

Don’t you want to look like a different, better, a more refreshed version of yourself? A truly skilled practitioner should be able to deliver a result that gives you the change you’re looking for without making you look like a stranger in the mirror. Remember that to make you look like a different human altogether would take significant intervention.

Fear #3: I will look weird and unnatural.

This is why it’s important to choose the right practitioner. Don’t just go to the cheapest place. This is where the art of dermal fillers and aesthetics become important. 

Fear #4: I don’t want to live with results I don’t like!

Not to worry … Botox only lasts three months, and Hyaluronic acid Fillers like Restylane, Juvederm and Voluma are reversible! Don’t choose treatments that are not reversible, if this is your fear.

Fear #5: Botox is a neurotoxin. This means it is dangerous.

Botulinum toxin has been used medically for over 40 years. It was first used in children for strabismus (wandering eyes). The medical field relies on its therapeutic use, and this makes up a majority of the Botox industry.

Fear #6: If I stop, I will look worse.

First of all, you won’t want to stop because you will love the way you look and feel! But even if you do a procedure only once, you have just slowed aging during the duration of the effects of your treatment. Products like dermal fillers build collagen, and give long-term anti-aging improvements.

Fear #7: My spouse (or family and friends) love me the way I am.

If your spouse (or well-meaning family and friends) encourage you not to have anything “done” because they love you the way you are, the truth could be that they are just afraid you will look different. This leads to many secret office visits with the close-minded family members being none the wiser and who simply believe their loved one looks great naturally!
