Cosmetic Injectables: Looking Natural not Unnatural

Southern Cosmetics Felicity Anti Wrinkle 83

Well placed dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections can look amazing. You’ve probably seen good ‘work’ a hundred times, but because it’s done with skill and precision, you probably didn’t even notice.

Here’s what injectables can do to keep you looking your best and, of course, natural.

Anti-wrinkle injections:

Anti-wrinkle injections are used to relax muscles. The first thing that probably pops into your mind when you think of anti-wrinkle injections is overly smooth, shiny foreheads.

But do you know that you can use anti-wrinkle injections to lift the brows and lift the corners of the mouth? The simple combination of elevating the brows and lifting the corners of the mouth can give the overall impression of being less saggy, less angry and less tired.

Treatment to between and the outer brow will elevate the brows and open your eyes. A brow lift procedure does not have any impact on the forehead muscles, the forehead will continue to have full movement, so you won’t lose any expression in your upper face.

Anti-wrinkle injections can also lift the corners of the mouth. As we age the corners of our mouth start to turn down, giving a sad look to the mouth. When a small amount of product is injected to the muscle that pulls the corner of the mouth down, the muscle relaxes, and the corners of the mouth pop up.

Dermal filler injections:

If dermal filler is done properly, nobody should be able to tell. Instead, you should look younger and fresher, like you’ve just come back from a relaxing holiday. The key to achieving a great result with filler is a full-face approach. Consider the facial structure and replicating fat, bone and collagen that was once present, but has been lost with time and age. Simply adding fillers to remove lines and wrinkles can make the face look unnatural or overfilled.

Fillers to the temples and cheeks are a great example of how fillers care be used to enhance subtly, yet effectively. Not only can the filler lift the lower half of the face, which sags with age, temple and cheek fillers can lift the corner of the eye and support the under-eye area that hollows and deflates over time.

In the lower face, fillers can be used to smooth and re-volumize. It’s common to lose volume in the lower face which causes jowls and wrinkles around the mouth. Filler can be placed under these lines to lift and soften, giving an air-brushed look, not an over-inflated, puffy appearance. The key to natural looking fillers around the mouth is using small amounts of well-placed filler and maintaining natural movement of the mouth.

Having cosmetic treatments is a personal choice. Some choose to do nothing, while others take it to the extreme, but if it’s a natural, subtle enhancement you’re after, you’ve come to the right place.
