I hate to have to start with a disclaimer, but these opinions are solely my own. I do not have any negative opinion on people who have filler, I have many clients who choose to have it and that is perfectly fine! However, over the years I have had a lot of experience with seeing fillers in all ways. This blog post is a result of them. So if this is going to trigger you, please don't continue to read.
I have a lot of clients who ask my opinion on having them done. What my thoughts are and also why I have chosen not to go down the 'filler route'. These are my 5 reasons why I choose not to have them done.
If you do decide to have facial fillers, then just ensure you go to a reputable medical professional who does them regularly and you have seen a true picture of their work beforehand. Don't forget, a lot of the images on social media with before and afters can be filtered or edited and might not necessarily look like that in real life! it's a scary world we live in!
In the ever-evolving world of beauty treatments, facial fillers have gained immense popularity. However, as a passionate skincare professional, I have developed a personal perspective on this particular treatment. In this blog post, I will shed light on the five reasons why I personally favor a more natural approach over facial fillers.
1. A Subtle Restructuring: Undetectable Beauty:
Facial fillers, when done correctly, should be undetectable. They should work harmoniously with the natural contours of the face, enhancing structure and providing subtle rejuvenation. The goal is to ensure that others can't pinpoint whether a person has had fillers, but simply notice a refreshed and youthful appearance. Let your beauty be a secret that only you hold.
2. The Myth of Dissolvability:
Contrary to what we are often told, facial fillers don't always dissolve completely on their own. I have witnessed clients who still have remnants of filler in their cheeks or lips even after several years without touch-ups. This lack of dissolvability can have lasting effects and is an aspect that should be taken into consideration before opting for fillers.
3. Beware of the "Cellulite" Look:
In my experience, I have seen cases where facial fillers that didn't dissolve properly over time transformed into an almost "cellulite" appearance on the cheeks. This irreversible effect serves as a reminder that unexpected outcomes can occur, even in the hands of skilled practitioners. It is crucial to weigh the potential risks and rewards before proceeding with any treatment.
4. Migration: The Wandering Filler:
Stories of facial fillers migrating and causing inflammation or infections in the face are not unheard of. Although migration is not a common occurrence, the risk remains. It is essential to be aware of the potential consequences and choose treatments that minimise such risks, prioritising your overall health and well-being.
5. Regulations and Qualifications:
One of the most concerning aspects of facial fillers is the lack of stringent regulations regarding who can perform these treatments. Shockingly, anyone can attend a short course and start administering fillers without the need for medical qualifications. This alarming lack of oversight underscores the importance of seeking treatments from trained and experienced professionals who prioritize safety and hold themselves to high ethical standards.
While facial fillers have their merits and can provide positive outcomes for many individuals, it is essential to be well-informed and consider the potential risks involved. I advocate for a more natural approach, where the emphasis is on enhancing one's natural beauty and embracing a skincare regimen that nurtures and supports long-term skin health. Let us strive for a balance between rejuvenation and preservation, embracing the uniqueness and individuality that make us truly remarkable!
