Thinking of Getting Fillers? Here are a Few Things You Should Know!

The world of beauty has been forever changed by the development of dermal fillers. We routinely use products to plump lines and creases, volumize lips and cheeks, even to reshape the nose, chin, and jawline. If you’ve yet to jump on the dermal filler bandwagon but are considering doing so, here are a few details that may help you make your most confident decision.

  1. The goal of dermal filler treatment is to enhance your natural beauty. It is not our goal to take thin lips and make them look like Kylie Jenner’s. If your lips are naturally very subtle, such a drastic change would look completely out of the ordinary, and we don’t mean that in a good way. Our providers perform treatments with an eye for symmetry and balance across all facial features. The availability of various filler products enables us to maintain natural beauty in patients of all ages.
  2. Fillers are customized to each person’s needs. Some people wonder why there are so many different filler products available today. The reason is that every person’s skin is different. Actually, each cosmetic concern is unique. To fill the lips, the cheeks, the jawline, and the delicate tissue under the eyes with the same product would ultimately result in a subpar outcome. Lips and eyes need a thinner, smoother filler. Cheeks and other more contoured areas require a denser, more substantial filler.
  3. Your provider’s experience is important. The results that stem from filler treatment are only partially related to the product selected for your skin. A skilled provider knows which fillers are good for which concerns. They also know how to inject and observe the skin throughout the treatment process to ensure they do not over- or under-fill the area.
  4. Some dermal fillers can be reversed. Dermal fillers don’t last forever but they can last several months. If you’re unsure how you will feel about your new look, talk with your provider. Only fillers made of hyaluronic acid can be reversed. To do this, your provider simply injects an enzyme into the area where filler has been inserted. The enzyme breaks down the hyaluronic acid so your skin returns to its normal appearance.
