Like all things, too much of a good thing can turn out to be detrimental in the end. Alongside Botox, dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero are also soaring in popularity in the non-surgical facial rejuvenation arena.
Some fillers replace volume loss while others stimulate production of naturally occurring substances like collagen. Nevertheless, they all work to achieve the same goal — to allow the user to age more gracefully. So how does one avoid overuse of dermal fillers?
Find out if dermal fillers are the right treatment for you.
Sure, fillers are effective in restoring volume loss. But using them to address acne scars, pigmentation spots, and spider veins isn’t the right usage. You need to do your research so that you don’t try and force a filler to do a job it’s not really cut out to do.
Choose an experienced injector who provides fillers for aesthetic purposes.
Anyone in healthcare can basically inject fillers. That doesn’t mean they should. The best, safest outcomes are obtained if the injector is specifically trained in aesthetics and has in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy. At Elite Plastic Surgery, an experienced injector will know exactly the limitations or specific amount of filler required to help you achieve the results you want.
Have realistic expectations of the procedure.
Like all types of cosmetic procedures, dermal fillers are not meant to create a new “you.” Understand that facial fillers are designed to enhance or improve your existing facial features. They are not a panacea for all facial aging concerns.
