People naturally associate a glamorous face with pouty lips, smooth skin, and a well-defined jawline. However, as we get older – even just into the 20s! – our faces lose collagen, elasticity, and hyaluronic acid, so we start to show our age.
Fortunately, modern medical advancements have brought about dermal fillers to restore our youthful look at any age. It can almost become addictive to stay so young-looking with filler treatments, so how do you know when it’s too much of a good thing? Let’s take a look.
Why Should I Get Facial Filler?
The typical signs of aging on our faces include the following:
- More oblong face shape
- Flattened cheeks
- Presence of jowls (sagging under the jaw near the chin)
- Hollowing under-eye areas
These signs can make you look sad or tired. To fill out the skin and firm up the lines again, you can get strategic dermal filler injections. Dermal fillers will restore your youthful look and augment your facial structure.
The type of filler you choose will depend on the volume needed and the area treated. Some fillers can lift the cheeks and jawlines. Others can gently soften the lip lines around the mouth area. Still others can add volume to sunken temples, fill in hollowness under the eyes, and repair downturned mouth corners.
When Your Filler Is Too Much
If you get too much filler in your face, you will have an unnatural look. Remember that having the right amount will help you look naturally youthful, but having too much can make your features look askew.
Below are some of the common results of having too much filler in your face:
You look too puffy.
If your face looks bloated after a filler treatment, then you may have had too much filler injection on your cheeks or under your eyes.
You look too “full” for your age.
Having a youthful face means that you have no loose skin and a healthy glow. Although your dermal filler can restore the fullness of your face, it cannot tighten your skin. As a result, you may have a full look, but tired and lumpy skin. Talk to your aesthetician about tightening up your loose skin.
Your lips look like they have been stung by a bee.
You may have too much dermal filler injection if your lower lip can no longer touch your upper lip. As a result, your lips may appear too big and not proportional.
You undergo a dermal filler injection before your past filler is gone.
Dermal fillers can last up to 12 months or longer. If you go back to your cosmetic doctor months after your last treatment, then you may be getting too many injections already. Listen to the doctor’s recommendations about how often to have your facial treatments.
You have facial inconsistencies.
When you have had too much filler, then you may appear to have a bulging forehead, an overly pointy and sharp chin, and overly protruding cheekbones. Furthermore, the filler can stretch and weigh down your skin over time, which is known as filler fatigue.
