Natural looking cosmetic enhancements are trending now. The fashion in cosmetic skin treatments changes almost as often as it does for clothing. Over-filled lips and cheeks that once graced every magazine cover have now given way to a softer, more natural look. Refreshed and rejuvenated look is the main goal as if you were naturally that way.
Natural Looking Solution
The natural look coincides with most cosmetic injector’s belief in moderation and proper facial proportion when it comes to cosmetic injectable fillers. The injector will replace the volume you have lost recently, not the volume you have lost in the past 20 years. Looking younger after treatments is still a goal but looking good for your age is vital.
Throughout the ageing process, bone and fat pads under the skin that act as a scaffolding, start to thin. This leaves the skin to sag like a deflated balloon and appears drawn, tired and wrinkled. Every face ages in different ways. In some cases there is appearance of cheeks flattening in the 30’s while others keep that desired “apple” roundness well into their 70’s. This is why customised consultations and treatments with expert cosmetic injectors like Dr David Ballantyne are essential. The doctor needs to pinpoint where to focus the rejuvenation that is right for each person.
Age-related volume loss develops in many areas of the cheeks, face, tear troughs, temples, lips and the corners of the mouth. The doctor will inject dermal fillers to rejuvenate the whole face in a balanced, even way. Different thickness fillers are needed in different areas, giving a natural correction all over.
Probably the best non-surgical cosmetic procedures available today maintain a natural look is to first, re-build that lost scaffolding using a top fillers such as Voluma, Perlane, and Radiesse, or even a collagen stimulator known as Sculptra. Then, if needed, plumping up the areas closer to the surface with thinner fillers like Teosyal Redensity II, Juvederm Volift or Restylane which will achieve softer, more refined results.
By using appropriate amounts of neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, lines around the eyes and on the forehead can easily be relaxed. Once again, everyone needs different amount according to the depth of their lines and the strength of each their facial muscles. (Men tend to require higher amounts to treat their stronger, more resistant muscles).
You will start your skin treatment with a consultation. During the consultation, the Doctor will start with a comprehensive assessment of your skin texture, quality, pigment, volume loss and shape. A detailed treatment plan is produced for you to decide which options to pursue sooner and which later. Calm and comfortable injection techniques are used to create a relaxed, refreshed natural look. A follow-up visit in two weeks allows balancing and adjustment.
For natural-looking enhancements, it is crucial that you look for a skilled and experienced doctor with an aesthetic vision. This will allow you to achieve the look and feel you desire by bringing out your best features.
