Botox and dermal fillers have become a rising trend in twenty-something year old’s around our aesthetic offices in Mansfield and Cleveland, Ohio. So why has it become so trendy? We’ve heard a few common reasons when talking to our patients about their use of injectables. The pressure to be perfect yet still stand out in today’s social media-minded world is ever-growing, so naturally, that desire falls at the top of the list.
Many of our younger patients say, “I want fuller lips.” Or “I want less noticeable lines in my face.” The pairing of Botox and dermal fillers are a perfect match for both of these requests. Botox offers injectable augmentation to places like lips, chin, and cheeks. With social media, the push for flawless skin has become stronger. Facial fillers can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that may be appearing, whether you’re ready or not. These fillers help fill lines and wrinkles naturally occurring from facial expressions, commonly near the eyes or around the mouth.
Because of the rise in facial injections, so comes the rise of places offering them. Choosing a reputable aesthetic practice for your Botox or dermal filler facial injections is incredibly important. It isn’t as simple as just picking the target areas and injecting. The benefit of choosing a medical aesthetic practice like our Cleveland area or Mansfield office is you get strategic placement and custom facial filler injections by a medical aesthetic professional. You see, a 25-year-old and a 60-year-old will need very different Botox or dermal filler amounts. Too much filler can over-accentuate the area, while not enough may leave you wanting more.
Ensuring you’ll get the look you desire is one of the most important reasons to choose a medical aesthetic practice. Too much filler can leave you with an over-filled balloon effect or cause you to look older. Because the facial injections were so long used by prominently 50+-year-olds, the “standard” amount that is sometimes used is formulated for their faces. The faces of these older patients have lost collagen and fat over the years; therefore, they need much more product injected than someone looking for a little extra plumpness.
So, if you’re one of those twenty-somethings considering Botox and facial injections, here’s something to leave you with. First, choose a professional medical aesthetic practice over the local dentist office now offering Botox. Second, remember that you will adjust to how you look over time. Down the road, you may feel like you want a bigger, more noticeable plump. This can, over time, lead you to the earlier mentioned overfilled balloon look. When choosing to have facial fillers done with Fairlawn Aesthetic MD, you are choosing a professional team and custom skin treatment.
