Dermal fillers are taking over the injectables scene! Although they have not yet overthrown Botox as the most frequently requested injectable, their steady growth over the past few years is proof that more men and women are now open to the idea of cosmetic procedures that offer immediate results and are less invasive.
Although dermal fillers have been proven to really work in restoring the face’s youthful contours, extra care should be taken to prevent overuse. Filler overuse may result in overly enhanced facial features and an unnatural look.
How to prevent overuse of dermal fillers
Finding a highly experienced injectable provider is the first step toward making sure that you avoid overuse. Your chosen provider should have thorough knowledge of facial anatomy, injection points, and an in-depth understanding of the importance of using just the right amount of filler. Choose an injector that has a long history of providing the filler of your choice.
Second, it pays to have realistic expectations of the procedure. You need to understand that fillers have limitations — the results are temporary and they will not give you a whole new look but rather restore your unique facial features that have faded with time.
Lastly, you need to figure out if the filler of your choice specifically targets your current issues. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane work really well in improving the appearance of mild forms of smile lines, while collagen boosters such as Sculptra are ideal for reducing nasolabial folds.
