Do you ever wonder why some patients look younger and more attractive after facial fillers while others actually look worse? What is the secret to achieving the later? The secret is that the injector must understand facial aging as a whole.
As we grow older, we do not only age in one spot on our face. Instead, our faces undergo aging in a smooth and consistent plane throughout our face. An injector who does not understand facial aging will just essentially try filling in the lines with a facial filler.
Unfortunately, that approach often leads to a walrus or bulldog look and typically does not get rid of the lines. Dr. Shah prefers to place filler in a more global fashion to create not only a more youthful face, but one which is balanced, symmetrical, and overall looks more attractive.
Placement of filler this way is much more complex and takes a trained eye. Dr. Shah not only understands anatomy, he understands the anatomy of aging and beauty anatomy to create a more youthful face. He uses fillers, such as Radiesse and Juvederm; which can mimic natural materials in the body and eventually are replaced and transformed into collagen.
With a more global approach to filler, Dr. Shah is able to reveal a more youthful and refreshed look, without the threat of a walrus like appearance.
