Any cosmetic treatment, whether it is surgery or non-invasive cosmetic treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, needs to look completely natural and appropriate to the face. But all too often what we see are individuals who don’t look quite right. You may not be able to put your finger on just what it is at first, but it is noticeable.

We may see that the cheeks look too puffy or the lips are too big for the face. It might be that the facial muscles don’t move naturally. Sometimes we can’t work out exactly what it is that isn’t quite right. This is simply bad cosmetic work. When it comes to non-surgical cosmetic treatments, the end result should look completely natural and, more importantly, not detectable as a cosmetic treatment. Good cosmetic work should rejuvenate or enhance the natural features, as well as give the face a fresher appearance.

Facial Lines and Dermal Fillers

With the use of dermal fillers, lines are softened and volume to the cheeks and other areas of the face that lose volume with age can be restored. They can also help to lift sagging skin and jowls and restore more youthful curves to the face in a way that is subtle and completely natural. The effect should be incremental. We are simply trying to replace some of the tissues that are lost as part of the ageing process.

The most popular of cosmetic procedures is to reduce the frown lines with muscle relaxing injections. This removes an unintended angry expression, making the face more open and welcoming.

Natural Looking Lip Enhancements

The lips also lose volume with ageing. Top lip lines develop and the corners of the lips start to turn down. This can result in an unhappy expression and also to deeper lines travelling down to the jawline. It is easy to see why we call these marionette lines. Dermal filler in the lips and surrounding tissues, as well as anti-wrinkle injections, can be used to improve these issues. Again, for these to be successful this needs to look completely natural.

It is possible to enhance the lips, especially in younger women, to give a little more volume or definition than we were genetically blessed with. However, to look natural we need to consider the underlying shape of the lips as well as the face as a whole. This is where the person you choose to do the non-invasive cosmetic treatment can be critical to the end result. An eye for facial aesthetics is essential to create a natural looking enhancement.

The Evolution of Non-invasive Cosmetic Treatments

The past few years have seen many advancements in injection techniques as well as new and versatile products. Anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections are simple and safe procedures in the right hands. There is minimal discomfort and generally no downtime. The best results are achieved by using the highest quality products in the hands of a skilled and experienced cosmetic physician.

These non-invasive cosmetic treatments not only improve the appearance and health of the skin now. They also help to prevent the deepening of existing lines and further skin sagging. As the technology for non-invasive cosmetic treatments continues to improve, we are handed a chance to do more than just look good today. We can create our own statement of who we are and how we want to present ourselves to the world.

Fashions come and go but we are only born with one face. Neglecting this important fashion accessory and outward expression of ourselves may leave us appearing older than necessary. It can certainly leave us looking older on the outside than many of us feel on the inside. We can spend a lot on fashions that come and go. But our face is the ultimate fashion statement about ourselves and is well worth the investment of care to prevent damage from our environment, repair the effects of ageing and to enhance our features.
