Each year, an average of 2.6 million people receive some kind of dermal filler in the United States.

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. People turn to fillers when looking to diminish signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, or to enhance the appearance of their lips. But a common concern that may prevent some from choosing dermal fillers is the worry of looking unnatural. There are a few important ways to avoid this problem.

Turn to Professionals

A board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience in the field will be able to understand your goals and find the best ways of achieving them.

Given their training and experience in aesthetics, they will be able to give you a realistic idea of what to expect from the results and advise you on the best options for your facial proportions.

A plastic surgeon will know how much filler to inject into specific areas for the most natural results, ensuring you can still get the look you want but without giving you a stiff and unnatural appearance. They will also know which fillers are best for the various areas, since not all dermal fillers are the same.

The location of dermal fillers matters, too. A highly skilled doctor will know exactly where to provide the filler injections to give you the most natural look. The surgeon can also offer less filler or treat a smaller area at a time.

Additionally, board-certified plastic surgeons will have a better understanding of facial anatomy, ensuring that they apply fillers where they will not affect your expressions.

Consultations are vital both for you and for the professional providing the fillers. Always schedule one before getting the injections.

Maintain a Regular Schedule

Another way you can prevent looking stiff and unnatural after dermal fillers is to make sure that you stick to a regular maintenance schedule.

If you allow too much time to pass between treatment sessions, the fillers’ effects will wear off, and you can experience returned sagging and volume loss. It will be much more noticeable when you do receive Juvéderm and other products again.

Your doctor will be able to guide you on how often to schedule appointments. Try to adhere to this recommended schedule as closely as possible for optimal results.

Get Natural Filler Results

Natural-looking fillers are definitely possible. By visiting an experienced doctor and maintaining a regular schedule, you can achieve a youthful, natural appearance without stiffness.
