Cosmetic Surgery Trends: Facial Fillers

By  |  | News


There’s a new cosmetic surgery trend in town. Dubbed ‘pillow face’, gone is the stretched look of Botox and in it’s place is a smooth, plumped up face.

Many celebrities have realised that Botox alone can often lead to a false, stretched look which isn’t always particularly pleasant. To help soften the face dermal fillers are now all the rage to help plump out the face.

The ageing process sees most people lose volume from the face – first from around the eyes, then the upper cheeks, cheekbones, sides of the mouth, nose-to-mouth lines, and then the forehead and sides of the face. To help negate this ageing look, many celebrities are turning to facial fillers to help plump out their faces and make them look younger.

And there are plenty of facial fillers to choose from – Restylane, Voluma and Juvederm are arguably the most well known. Most dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid which naturally is present in the skin.

Facial fillers, like Botox, are temporary and need to be topped up about once a year. There is little bruising and just a small amount of swelling so the injections are very easy to hide.

The one major downside of facial fillers are that if you use too much filler, the face can end up looking over-plumped and unnatural. Partly, this occurs when human fat is used. The human body tends to use up up to 70% of what is implanted, therefore some cosmetic surgeons will inject a large proportion of filler to make up for this.

    I would say this Juvederm treatment is the best, because I heard this substance is a natural one and not a toxin like botox.Is this true or the person that told me this about juvederm was just trying to fool me?

    I disagree with what you said about the dermal fillers that can look unnatural since there are already biodegradable dermal fillers today.

    Volmina has NOT passed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations in United States. The most popular filler there is Sculptra. It needs a very good dermatologist (not cosmetic surgeon who are best for face lifts with the knife) to be administered as it has to be put in deep into the epidermal layers.

    Movie stars and celebs who use Botox are finding they cannot get film roles and the Botox leaves their faces devoid of expression and mask like although free of wrinkles for the duration of the treatment, until next time.
