Many people opposed to dermal fillers express reservations about looking “overdone” or as if they’ve had work done. Though there are some clients who want a more dramatic change and don’t mind looking like they’ve had work done, most of our clients at Plaza Aesthetics ask for more subtle, natural-looking results.
Though the dermal filler procedure is fairly simple, injecting the fillers requires precision, artistry, and an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy to produce beautiful, subtle, and natural-looking results. If you want to enhance your natural features with fillers rather than changing them or covering them up, here are a few things to keep in mind.
Treatment Areas For Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can be used to treat nearly any area of the face affected by wrinkles, folds, or age-related volume loss. Dermal fillers can also be used to add volume to facial features, such as the cheeks or lips for more appealing contours, or to the hands for a younger appearance.
Dermal filler treatment can be done in the following areas:
- Lips, for a smoother and fuller pout
- Cheeks, to restore volume and youthful contours
- Nasolabial folds, to soften the appearance of deep lines
- Jowls and chin, to provide lift and enhance contours
- Under eyes, to address puffiness and hollows
- Hands, to restore volume
How Facial Fillers Are Used To Enhance Natural Features
The best approach to dermal fillers is to be cautious. Botched injections are an unfortunate possibility and most of us have seen distorted results on celebrities and even those in our circle of friends. In many cases, those botched jobs are done by inexperienced or unscrupulous injectors who went too far, used too much filler, used the wrong filler, didn’t have an eye for natural beauty, or worse — rushed through the procedure.
Fortunately, it’s easy to do online research ahead of time to avoid those types of practitioners. Here are a few tips for making the right decision for your treatment goals.
Take the time to do research.
During the consultation, ask for pictures of past treatment results, client testimonials, and approach to treatment. Ask for recommendations from friends and family members, check the practitioner’s certifications, and trust your gut.
Discuss treatment for specific areas.
The more you know about what’s causing your cosmetic issues, the better equipped you’ll be to understand your treatment options. If your practitioner acts impatient with you during the consultation, find a different specialist.
It’s safer to use less filler than start with too much. You can always return for additional injections if the results are too subtle, but it will take time for the results to fade if you aren’t happy.
Trust your practitioner.
Once you find someone you trust with dermal filler treatment, then you need to trust them when they say you’ve got enough filler injected during treatment. A highly trained, skilled, and experienced practitioner will have a good eye for how to create natural results, and how to stay away from the overdone look.
