Fillers

I started this blog because I love to share what works for me as a 50-year young woman:) I want to preface this post by saying a couple of things. First, using fillers or botox is a woman’s individual journey. As I talked about in my post How and When To Get Botox. For myself, I didn’t turn to fillers to help keep up my appearance until I was in my mid 40’s. I believe that doing IPL’s and superficial laser treatments helped keep the collagen in my face around longer than if I hadn’t done those type of treatments.  That is what you’re doing when you start to use derma fillers, basically replacing the fullness in your face that you lose as you age.

Where To Start

By far choosing the right doctor is where you need to start. Ask your friends, read online reviews, and go through their social media. The doctor’s office Instagram will give you a good sense of what their work looks like from the before and after pictures. Finally, schedule a consult to see if they are a good fit for you.

What To Fill

You will want to consult with your doctor about what needs attention. Lips are always a popular choice to start. Less is always more here. I go for a subtle enhanced look, plumping out the lines that were not there in my 20’s! You can add more product when you go to your 2-week after procedure appointment if you want more. Dissolving product is also an option at your check-up appointment if you’re not happy with the result. Dissolving product stings and bit and you’ve already paid for what you’re now removing, so that’s why it so important to choose the right doctor to get it right the first time.

I love to fill the bottom third of my face, my chin area. I feel like it smooths out my skin. Also, it magically makes my lips look fuller, and I always love the results! Under the eye filler also makes a dramatic difference! Filler along the cheekbone lifts your face a bit where your smile lines are and defines your cheeks. Filler can even be used to give you a straighter nose! I’ve seen amazing before and after’s on the nose area!

What Type Of Filler

There are so many types of fillers with new products coming out regularly. The molecules in fillers have been specially formulated for different areas of the face. Some are very thin for the under-eye area and some thicker for a more significant enhancement. Most types of fillers can be dissolved after they have been injected if you do not like the results. Some you cannot though so discuss that when you choose your type of filler.
