Trending stories about “filler fatigue” or overuse of fillers may have left you wondering if using dermal fillers long-term can “ruin” your face or have lasting unwanted effects. The short answer is that fillers are temporary and won’t permanently change your face.
However, there are factors that can affect your filler results to be aware of before sitting down for your appointment. Here, we take a more in-depth look at how to avoid filler mishaps and looking overfilled.
Fillers Should Always Be Administered By a Professional
In many instances, complications such as an overfilled look or filler fatigue can have more to do with the skill and experience level of the person administering the filler than the filler itself. Always choose a properly trained and experienced filler provider who understands the intricacies of facial anatomy and the nuances of injection techniques to ensure smooth, beautiful results.
Choose a provider who understands that a ‘less is more’ approach is crucial when administering dermal fillers.
Fillers Can’t Fix Everything
Dermal fillers can significantly smooth away fine lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth and can add a boost of youthful volume to your cheeks and lips. However, it is important to understand the limitations of fillers so you don’t expect them to completely erase every last line or give you an entirely different set of lips than what you naturally have.
Temporary Side Effects Are Normal
Fillers won’t have lasting effects on your face — they wear off over time and your face will return to its pre-filler appearance. That said, temporary swelling and bruising directly after your appointment can be noticeable for up to two weeks after your appointment. So make sure you schedule your filler appointment with enough buffer room before a big event.
