Wanting to look better is almost universal and society is evermore image conscious. Cosmetic skin treatments offer a series of options for rejuvenating the skin and improving its appearance, but some clients are put off by the idea of going too far.
Celebrities who’ve over-indulged in treatments such as dermal fillers, lip filler and anti-ageing injections are fairly regularly featured and criticised in the media and that is something which can be slightly worrying for those contemplating treatments for the first time or looking for a new practitioner.
What Happens When Cosmetic Treatments Go Too Far?
Cosmetic treatments like BOTOX® and dermal fillers can achieve incredible results in erasing wrinkles and boosting the volume within the skin (or lips); but there comes a point where too much work can make the patient look unnatural.
This is commonly thought of as being the result of using too much product (BOTOX® or dermal filler) but the effects of looking over-done can also result from the way in which injections are delivered – the number and precise location points of injection making quite a big difference to the overall result.
What’s undeniable is that looking ‘overdone’ isn’t a good thing.
Too much BOTOX® wrinkle-relaxant, taking away every last line and crease, can leave the patient with a suspiciously smooth and ‘waxy’ looking forehead. There can also be a knock-on effect in other areas, so the ‘bunny lines’ which can appear on the side of the nose may appear as a consequence of other areas being over-treated and unable to move. Suppressing the ability to move facial muscles also means that patients can lack facial expression, looking frozen or permanently surprised.
Too much dermal filler in the face can leave a person looking puffy or ‘pillow-faced’, while excessive filler in the lips can lead to the ‘trout pout’ or ‘duck lips’ which result from having too much filler product in the lips or else having it inexpertly injected.
How to ensure natural-looking and flattering results
Achieving natural looking, flattering results is not simply about quantity of product. Obviously that is a factor, but also the way in which it is injected has an effect.
Expert injections in the right hands will deliver dermal fillers or BOTOX® wrinkle-relaxant very precisely in the right areas using subtle techniques.
Understanding the fine facial dynamics and anatomical points means that often less is more – a better result can be achieved using a smaller amount of product in the hands of an experienced and skilled injector. If necessary, a result can be improved with additional injections.
A skilled Aesthetic Physician will have the experience to advise their patient against going too far and will also have the confidence to say no.
