Fillers are a miracle instrument, but perhaps only within the hands of a miracle worker.
While it’s true that fillers are incredibly versatile tools that can be used to solve an array of aesthetic desires, it largely depends on the skill of the medical professional involved.
Choosing the Right Filler, and Putting It in the Right Hands
This isn’t just a matter of the finesse of the clinician injecting the filler–although that’s incredibly important.
A skilled professional works with the client to find out their specific aesthetic desires, and helps ground their expectations so they know what can be done and what will work with their current profile.
Knowing what a client wants can involve extensive questioning and dialogue. Does a client want to look younger? Do they hate the look of certain crow lines–and perhaps Botox would be better? What are their expectations regarding the permanence or reversibility of the procedure?
If a patient decides they want a dermal filler with hyaluronic acid, they should be aware that these sorts of fillers last, at most, two years and must be touched up.
If they decide they want a Botox injection, they should know that Botox works cumulatively and is more effective the longer the patient is treated with it.
Choosing Between Filler Products
There are so many different filler products. Some products are meant for different parts of the face. Some are meant to have different levels of elasticity and support.
The product used depends on what the patient wants. Further, the patient should know their unique facial features. Oftentimes these unique features are what makes someone beautiful. A good clinician might work with the patient to augment these characteristics.
