I would rephrase the question as 'how not to look like you had treatment'. You know when you go out of the clinic or when you go out, people will say oh have you ever get fillers done. It is always important to discuss with the physician to see what effects you are trying to achieve. Because I think once you reach that effect, you have to stop. As mentioned, people actually do get addicted, I have clients who are actually addicted.
When we inject fillers, in unlikely cases, the filler is injected into the bloodstream and affects blood flow to the eye. The eye will have no blood and no oxygen, so the eye will go blind. Which is why it's important that we as physicians know our anatomy well and to avoid certain areas that we are not supposed to go into, but understanding anatomy is one. And secondly, usually, for areas that are more dangerous, we use what we call a cannula, which is a blunt needle instead of a sharp needle. So if it's a blunt needle it is less likely we inject directly into the bloodstream.
That is very specific. Well, fillers actually help with scarring, but I would say it depends on what type of scar. The short answer is yes you can, but you might also want to consider other options that actually specifically deal with the scar. But filler might not be my first choice at least for the scar.
