How to get the natural look with dermal fillers

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm are one of the most popular types of non-surgical procedure. Globally, over 10 million treatments are performed every year and the number is rising.

Unfortunately, though, the media is filled with celebrities described as having “duck lips”, “puffy looks” or “pillow faces”.

Dermal fillers would not have such a bad name, however, if the procedure was done correctly and artistically. Dermal fillers can give your cheeks the perfect contour, your jaw lines the perfect angle and your lips the perfect pout.

So what differentiates an obvious dermal filler placement from a natural-looking one?

Avoiding poor quality dermal filler treatments

A correct, detailed assessment is one of the most important things to ensuring a natural look with dermal fillers. Problems arise when a doctor over-treats your face. Going beyond the point of beautification creates the unwanted ‘pillow face’ or ‘trout pout’ appearance.

The art to a natural look is also about choosing the right dermal filler. Often while browsing online you can see the adverts for “1ml filler for £xxx” or  “2ml filler for £xxx”.

What they’re offering is just a quantity: there is no choice in the type of dermal filler they will use in the treatment.

Choosing the right doctor

Firstly, you need to make sure your doctor is one who will take time to assess your face.

Dr Anita Dhunna will give you a thorough assessment as part of your consultation, before undertaking any procedure.

She will assess the dimensions of your face, and identify how to replace lost volume to help beautify your appearance. She will take also take your medical history, and discuss your ideas, concerns and expectations of the treatment.

Choosing the right dermal filler

A good doctor knows the different qualities of each type of dermal filler. They know which one to use to help achieve the most natural look – one that gives your face the definition, volume and contour it deserves.

The majority of dermal fillers – including Juvederm – are made of hyaluronic acid. How the hyaluronic acid is created will affect its properties – whether it’s harder or softer, the amount of lift it can achieve and how long it will last.

Dr Anita Dhunna has experienced of using a large range of dermal fillers. She is able to choose the correct dermal filler, to help you achieve the perfect face.

Placing the dermal filler correctly

The last important thing that contributes to a natural look with dermal filler is placement.

Your doctor should have the techniques, experience and skill to achieve perfect placement of the dermal filler. The treatment should not leave your face lumpy or asymmetrical.

Dr Anita Dhunna has over 10 years’ experience of injection treatments such as dermal fillers, using a variety of techniques with both needles and cannulas.

Based on your consultation and assessment, she will carefully and artistically create the beautiful, natural look that will be your secret to enjoy!
