Achieving a natural look, without going, well, just plain old <i>natural</i> (sans makeup or "work"), is harder than one might think. Getting the right amount and type of fillers is key in aging gracefully
All types of fillers and injectables, both those that are FDA-approved and those that are not, can be abused. While it’s not in your best interest to have any one substance overinjected, negative long-term effects of Botox, Dysport and hyaluronic acid fillers are typically less severe than fillers that are intended to be longer-lasting or permanent.
If problems arise with long-lasting and permanent fillers, they can be corrected surgically, whereas the effects of Botox, Dysport and hyaluronic acid fillers will eventually wear away on their own.
Stick with temporary fillers
According to West Palm Beach, FL, dermatologist Kenneth R. Beer, MD., temporary fillers look more natural than something semipermanent or permanent because they are more compatible with the body. “Our bodies naturally do not have plastic or silicone in them. When these substances are injected, they never look as natural,” he says. Permanent fillers also do not age along with the face.
Actress Jenny McCarthy has aged beautifully since 1996. “Her Botox (or Dysport) is perfect,” says Dr. Beer. “And her brows have a very feminine arch.”
