Beauty trends come and go, but one look that will always be desirable and that is natural beauty. The goal of most cosmetic procedures is to help you recover your natural beauty.
Dr. Kevin Jovanovic and Dr. Radoslav Jovanovic appreciate your innate beauty, but they also understand that sometimes you need a little intervention so you can shine. We offer dermal fillers, along with other services, so you can maintain the appearance that helps you feel your very best.
If you’re worried that dermal fillers will give you an unnatural, overdone appearance, you have good cause. Television, social media, and magazines feature women who have over-sized lips, little expression, and other obvious signs they’ve “had work done.” In this post, we offer our best tips for getting a perfectly natural look with dermal fillers.
Don’t DIY your fillers
You may have seen fillers marketed to the public. Please, don’t buy them. There are several reasons that you shouldn’t give yourself injections of dermal fillers.
The FDA says, “Do not buy derma fillers that are sold directly to the public. They may be fake, contaminated, or not approved for use in the U.S. FDA-approved dermal fillers are indicated for prescription use only.”
Also, getting a dermal filler injection is a medical procedure. You wouldn’t give yourself stitches or attempt a self-administered facelift, so don’t give yourself an injection of dermal fillers, even with a needle-free injection pen.
Don’t get fillers injected at a salon or non-medical spa
Similarly, don’t go to a salon or non-medical spa for dermal fillers. You want to get medical procedures from licensed healthcare professionals who have been trained specifically in giving dermal filler injections.
Someone can be an expert in providing outstanding facials, yet be completely unqualified to give injections of dermal fillers.
Follow care instructions carefully
Your after-care instructions depend on the type of filler, where it was injected, and several other factors. Most people should stay out of the sun and avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours following their injection.
We may suggest you ice the injection site, avoid touching it, or massage it — it all depends on individual factors. We provide detailed instructions for you. To get the best results, follow them.
See an expert
The main thing you can do to get the look you want is to have a highly qualified, thoroughly trained expert like Dr. Jovanovic provide your injection. The person doing the injection must have expertise in placing the filler precisely where it needs to be, and in determining the correct amount to create the look you want.
If you’re considering dermal fillers, schedule a consultation. Dr. Jovanovic is happy to discuss your goals and make suggestions to help you reach them. Schedule your appointment today and find out whether dermal fillers could be the solution you need.
