How To Get the Most Natural Results From Your Fillers

Wrinkle reducing treatments like Botox and dermal fillers are growing more popular all the time. But if you want to get the most natural results from your filler treatments, make sure you’re using these tips.

Go Slowly

If you’re considering investing in dermal fillers for the first time, it can be so easy to go big or go home. But if you want the most natural look you can find, you’re going to have to be patient. Multiple sessions that inject a small amount of filler in the desired treatment are the way to go when you want to invest in fillers. And if this is your first time investing in fillers, it’s critical that you heed your doctor’s advice. If they advise against something that you thought you wanted, it’s in your best interest to listen carefully. You won’t be able to correct every issue or overcorrect an issue in a single visit. Doing so could have some disastrous results. In addition, going slowly means giving your fillers time to settle and take shape in your skin. Not only will your results look more natural, they’ll often last much longer. If, on the other hand, you rush and put too much filler in one area, you could be facing some less-than-desirable results. For example, putting too much filler in the lips in a single visit can result in the filler pushing upward and giving you a duck-lipped look. The best, most natural-looking results are the ones where the patient took their time and adjusted their filler little by little to achieve the perfect natural look.

Set Realistic Expectations

One of the most important things you can do when you want to invest in any kind of cosmetic dermatology services is set realistic expectations. For starters, it’s important to understand that everybody’s face is unique. You can’t walk into your dermatologist’s office and demand Beyonce’s lips or cheeks. Not only do dermal fillers not work that way, but asking to mimic someone else’s features on your face could lead to disastrous results. Before you go in for your filler, take a good look at YOUR face. If your goal is to look younger and reduce eye wrinkles, take a look at some pictures of yourself when you were younger. Those are going to be a much better reference for both you and your dermatologist when it comes time to decide what kind of filler and how much of it will do the most good for your appearance. When you want the most natural look from your fillers, keep your own face in mind! Nothing will look as natural on your face as your own features. Fillers exist to help you enhance those features, not mimic someone else’s.

Understand the Cause of the Problem

If you’re trying to solve a specific problem with your fillers, it’s important first to understand what’s causing it. For example, if you’re looking to make up for lost volume in your cheeks, but you don’t understand why your cheeks are sagging in the first place, you risk a filler session that ends with unnatural-looking results. Working with your dermatologist to understand the root cause of your facial concerns can help you develop a filler treatment that will leave you with the most natural-looking results you can imagine.
