Dermal Fillers in Boston: 4 Mistakes to Avoid

Dermal fillers in Boston are some of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures. They are used to manage various skin problems, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Although the treatment is safe and straightforward, it is not uncommon to see patients at our office after getting disappointing results elsewhere. If you don’t want to be one of them, here are some common mistakes to avoid.

Choosing the Wrong Filler

There are many different types of dermal fillers in Boston. Therefore, it is important to choose the right filler based on your skin, condition, and expected results. Most patients prefer hyaluronic acid derivatives, like Juvederm, because they resemble natural substances found in the skin. These derivatives are perfect for addressing fine wrinkles and lips.

Hyaluronic acid fillers also produce great results that last for months or longer. And since they’re natural derivatives, they have no adverse side effects and can be reversed using enzymes.

Other types of dermal fillers are available as well.

Choosing the Wrong Injector

Proper injection of dermal fillers in Boston requires skill and experience. As such, you should look for an experienced and certified injector. If you don’t choose the right injector, you risk getting adverse side effects, allergic reactions, infections or vascular blockage.

Be wary of injectors using a cookie-cutter approach to administer treatment. For example, you will hear them say they “always” use a specific number of syringes or amount of filler. Instead, look for specialists who know that every patient is unique. They conduct enough examination and consult widely before advising you on the right amount of filler. And before getting treatment, ask whether you can come back for more. The specialist should know how to reverse the treatment or tips for optimal results.

Getting Too Much Filler

When rejuvenating your face, or any part of the body with dermal fillers in Boston, you don’t want the practitioner to go overboard. Keep in mind that you’re the one who will showcase your face in public. A subtle change is, therefore, the best because plump doesn’t necessarily mean youthful. In fact, an over-plumped face shows something is wrong.

Choosing the Wrong Center

Apart from choosing the right injector, it is equally important to ensure the professional works in an accredited facility. This is because accredited centers are well-equipped with modern equipment and are certified to be safe.

Dermal fillers in Boston are perfect for getting a more youthful appearance, but the treatment must be done by a qualified specialist in an accredited facility.
