How To Get Injectables Without Looking Overdone

how to get injectables without looking overdone

You know the look. Puffy, pouty lips. Bulging cheeks. A frozen face. That Hollywood look just doesn’t look proportionate, or natural. Injectables are a fantastic product when used appropriately. They can temporarily eliminate wrinkles and even delay wrinkles in younger patients. However, with overuse, it can have a very negative effect on your appearance. So, how does one get injectables without looking overdone?

Don’t go to just anyone.

Injectables are not just a science, they are a work of art. If injectables are administered by an inexperienced, uneducated, and uncertified someone, the results will not be pretty. Only trust an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon with your appearance, even with non-invasive treatments like injectables. For the most natural-looking, proportionate results, it takes not only experience but a wide variety of injectables on the market.

Your injector should be able to recommend which filler suits you best and the exact amount of filler needed to get the results you want. He or she should also be able to recognize possible complications as well as how to prevent them.

Not every injector at your nearest medspa will meet these criteria. To get injectables without looking overdone, pay attention to who is administering them. There is often little regulation that gives these injections. Be safe, and stick with a board-certified plastic surgeon’s office.

Look at before and after photos.

A great way to judge a provider’s experience and ability with injectables are with photographic results. If you are a 50-year-old woman with thinning lips, first search for similar patient results that match your own desires. Once you’ve established your own reasonable expectations for results, search for potential injectors before and after pictures.

This allows a window into their artistic eye and personal style. If some look too unnatural for your taste, or if there are not many before and after photos, this can mean the injector is inexperienced.

Have realistic expectations.

It’s not human to produce mass amounts of collagen. Enhance your beauty instead of defying it. During your consultation with your chosen board-certified plastic surgeon, ask his or her opinion on which injectable is best for your desired results and body.

Having unrealistic expectations is the most common cause of unnatural-looking results from injectables. It’s never, ever a good idea to undergo appearance changes with the goal of looking like someone else. Have realistic expectations in the fact injectables are designed to enhance certain features. Natural beauty is the goal.

Each injectable is designed to address a specific cosmetic concern. Botox, for example, is most effective in addressing the crow’s feet and forehead creases. For other areas, facial fillers are a better choice.

Don’t be afraid to ask your provider their background experience, certifications, references, and even what will be done if you are unhappy with the results. Feel free to bring a pen and paper with your questions written down and definitely write down any details that you do not want to be forgotten. It’s important to know these factors of injectables so you avoid looking overdone.
