“How can I achieve natural looking filler?” –  this question is a hot topic, with constant controversy around whether cosmetic work and non-surgical aesthetics can look natural.

“I want filler, but don’t want anyone to know what I’ve had done- is that possible?”. We’re always asked this in our skin clinics! Long gone are the days of over-filled lips and super plump cheeks- natural aesthetics are in. Whilst there is still a demand for more dramatic results, this is definitely something that is slowly decreasing in popularity. Now, it is all about undetectable results and we’re all here for it! Especially as our very own Dr Haffar is a master in natural-looking aesthetics work. In this Blog Post, we’re going to be sharing with you our top tips on how to ensure you achieve natural results with dermal filler.


Step One: Choose Your Filler Injector Wisely

Choosing where to go to have your dermal filler treatment is one of the most crucial steps to achieving natural results. It is so important to choose an injector who has many years of experience performing aesthetics treatments. We also always stress the importance of going to a medical professional. This is because medical professionals will be well equipped to deal with any complications if they arise. They will also have a solid understanding of the facial anatomy and will be aware of any “no-go” zones in the face. Your safety is paramount!

To achieve the best results, we also stress that it is important to go to an injector who has an artistic eye and attention to detail. This is because they will be aware of the ratios needed in order to keep your features balanced, aligned and proportional- this is how you avoid the “overdone” look! During the treatment, the injector will often pause frequently to assess your face from different angles, to ensure that the filler is symmetrical and balanced.

Our Doctor at Simply Clinics, Doctor Youssef Haffar has over eight years of experience within the aesthetics industry. He prides himself on natural and undetectable results and is a master at creating a balanced and rejuvenated profile. You can see his incredible before and afters on our Instagram here. 


Step Two: Have Realistic Expectations for Filler

Especially when having dermal filler for the first time, it is important to remember that it can take time to achieve the desired results- Rome wasn’t built in a day after all!

Often, when too much filler is added too quickly, it can look very obvious and cause other complications. In a small area such as the lips, adding large amounts of filler at once can lead to the filler spreading out of the lip’s border, as it has nowhere else to go. This is when issues such as migration occur. Migration is is a tell-tale sign of lip filler and something that every aesthetic practitioner wants to avoid. If you are interested in finding out more about filler migration, you can check out this Blog Post.

If you are starting with naturally thinner lips and wish to achieve a noticeable pout, it may be recommended that this is achieved over a few sessions spaced a few months apart. This is to ensure that the integrity of the lips is maintained, and the results are not jeopardised.

It can be hard to know when enough is enough when it comes to your own face. If you have been having dermal filler treatments for a while, you can often forget what your features naturally look like. If an injector tells you that they do not believe injecting more filler would be a good idea- then believe them! A good injector will notice when adding more filler could potentially lead to un-natural results. They can often also see things from an objective point of view and see your face in a way that you will not be able to.


Step Three: Choose Your Natural Filler Treatment

There are many different areas of the face which can now be injected with filler to enhance and rejuvenate. Each area will provide a different outcome and result. Treatments such as tear trough filler, Profhilo, naso-labial folds and cheek filler are incredible at subtly rejuvenating the face. These treatments help to make you look younger and more refreshed without anyone questioning what you’ve had done!

Tear trough filler is an incredible treatment, which works by placing dermal filler into the hollows underneath the eyes. This then increases the volume in this area and diminishes the appearance of dark circles. After the treatment, it’s unlikely that anyone will notice you’ve had an aesthetics treatment. Just don’t be surprised if people comment on how healthy and awake you look!

Cheek filler is another treatment which can be used to subtly enhance the face. There are many images over on Instagram which show over-done cheeks, but that’s not how we do it at Simply Clinics. Cheek filler can be used to define the face and add structure, as well as creating a more youthful appearance.

Profhilo is our newest anti-ageing treatment we offer at the clinics. Whilst it is not a “dermal filler” treatment, it also involves injecting high doses of hyaluronic acid into the skin. Despite this, Profhilo works differently to dermal fillers, as it does not change the shape or enhance facial features. Instead, it works within the skin to increase hydration, tighten the skin and smooth out fine lines. This treatment is great if you want some facial rejuvenation but do not want obvious results. Check out our Profhilo treatment video on YouTube.

The naso-labial folds are the lines which run from the sides of your nose down to the mouth. This area is often one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. Luckily, these lines are able to be seamlessly smoothed out through the addition of dermal filler. This treatment leaves you with an instantly more refreshed and youthful appearance!

Lip filler doesn’t always have to be obvious too! This is one of our most popular treatments, as Dr Youssef is constantly sought-after for his natural looking lips. Book now to avoid a long waiting list!

Doctor Haffar uses a cannula rather than a needle for his lip filler treatments. This ensures that the filler is placed evenly throughout the lips and defines them whilst respecting the lip’s natural shape. Using a cannula also reduces the amount of bruising and swelling experienced post-treatment, so you can walk out looking fabulous with very little downtime.
