How to Achieve the ‘Natural Look’ with Cosmetic Injectables

What’s trending now? The “natural look”  in cosmetic enhancements.

The fashion in cosmetic skin treatments changes almost as often as it does for clothing. Over-filled lips and cheeks that once graced every magazine cover have now given way to a softer, more natural look. The goal is to look refreshed and rejuvenated as if you were naturally that way.

The natural look coincides with  Dr. Gidon Frame ‘s belief in moderation and proper facial proportion when it comes to cosmetic injectable fillers. Dr. Frame replaces the volume you have lost recently, not the volume you have lost in the past 40 years. Looking younger after treatments is still a goal but looking good for your age is vital.

Throughout the aging process, bone and fat pads under the skin that act as a scaffolding, start to thin. This leaves the skin to sag like a deflated balloon and appears drawn, tired and wrinkled. Every face ages in different ways. Some notice their cheeks flattening in their 30’s while others keep that desired “apple” roundness well into their 70’s. This is why customized consultations and treatments are essential. The consultant and doctor need to pinpoint where to focus the rejuvenation that is right for each person

Age-related volume loss occurs in many areas of the face, cheeks, temples, tear troughs, lips and beneath the corners of the mouth. Dr Frame injects dermal fillers to rejuvenate the whole face in a balanced, even way.  Different thickness fillers are needed in different areas, giving a natural correction all over.

One method used to maintain a natural appearance is to first, re-build that lost scaffolding using a thick filler such as Juvederm Voluma, Perlane or Radiesse or even a gradual collagen stimulator like Sculptra. Then, if needed, plumping up the areas closer to the surface with thinner fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane which will achieve softer, more refined results.

By using appropriate amounts of neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, lines around the eyes and on the forehead can easily be relaxed. Once again, everyone needs different amount according to the depth of their lines and the strength of each their facial muscles. (Men tend to need higher amounts to treat their stronger, more resistant muscles).

Dr. Frame and his professional team start with a comprehensive assessment of your skin texture, quality, pigment, volume loss and shape. A detailed treatment plan is produced for you to decide which options to pursue sooner and which later. Comfortable and calm injection techniques are employed to produce a relaxed, refreshed natural look. A follow-up visit in two weeks allows balancing and adjustment.

For a natural cosmetic enhancement, it is vital to seek out an experienced physician with an aesthetic vision. This will bring out your best features and allow you to look and feel your best.
