Fillers – Other Tricks to Avoiding Problems
Other tricks to avoiding filler problems?
1. Always pick a good doctor. This seems obvious but many people don’t. See my directory of good cosmetic dermatologists, and ask your friends (particularly if you like their skin and their look).
2. If you have thinner lips, don’t try to go large all at once. Plan on adding just a little extra volume every 3-6 months until you get the result you want. Please be realistic – you can’t go from very thin to Angeline Jolie.
3. Try to avoid more than 2, or maybe 3, syringes of Juvederm/Restylane in your face at one treatment. If you like the idea of Sculptra or Radiesse, try the effect you want with something more temporary like Juvederm/Restylane first. If you don’t like it, the HA fillers can be removed quite easily by dissolving it with an enzyme. The Sculptra and Radiesse have to wear off. They can’t be removed.
