Let’s look at how we are Using Dermal Fillers to Look More Feminine.
You’re not the only one who has wished for a more feminine appearance when looking in the mirror. In fact, this is a common desire that many patients actually feel timid about because they assume nobody else feels this way. Many people have a hard time putting their finger on exactly why their features don’t look feminine enough. It’s not your imagination if you feel like you’re losing the signature “feminine” features that were more prominent when you were younger. Aging or simple genetics can give some faces a “hard” look. Some people associate this with having a more masculine look. Softening and contouring facial features using dermal fillers can be extremely beneficial for creating a more feminine appearance.
What Makes a Face Appear Less Feminine?
It can be hard to define what a feminine face looks like. However, the same requests regarding facial features come in time after time from patients. Here’s a rundown of some common areas of concern among patients wishing for a more feminine face:
- A broad, prominent forehead.
- Sunken cheeks.
- Thin lips.
- Dull skin.
- Square jaw.
- Double chin.
- Tired eyes.
Adding volume and contouring in the right spots can soften some of the hardness that you don’t like seeing in the mirror. Unfortunately, features can turn harsher as we age due to the loss of collagen and elastin. A reduction in fat pads under the skin can also do away with the rounded, youthful look that our features had in our younger years. Loose skin that creates the effect of a double chin or jowls can also make the face appear less feminine.
Can Anyone Get Dermal Fillers to Look More Feminine?
Many people are unhappy because they’re watching feminine features diminish with age every time they look in the mirror. Dermal fillers are certainly ideal for addressing age-related changes. However, younger patients also frequently use dermal fillers to make features appear more feminine. This can be a convenient semi-permanent alternative to reconstructive surgery to address something like a prominent forehead, hidden upper lip or squared jaw.
How Can Fillers Make a Face Appear More Feminine?
During any Dermal Filler procedure, it is important for the injector to assess the three major elements of the face, the Foundation – midface region which includes the four aspects of the cheek, the Contours of the face, which includes the temples, jawline and chin and lastly but not least, the Finishing touches of the lower face, including the lips, marionette lines, neck and nasolabial folds.
Using fillers strategically can soften and round out various zones of the face. The goal is really to get features in sync using very strategic contouring and softening techniques. It’s true that using dermal fillers in one area of the face can be effective when you’re addressing something like droopiness or loss of volume. However, facial feminization with fillers is unique because it typically relies on allowing rejuvenated features to work in tandem to create a more feminine look. It’s really a matter of making everything “add up.” Yes, you do have the option to tweak your specific filler regiment to include more or fewer injection areas. However, using a “whole-face” approach when making your features appear more feminine typically provides the most effective results.
Where Are Fillers Placed to Make a Face Look More Feminine?
A general softening of the features combined with contouring for definition can bring a more feminine look to the face. The same techniques that bring feminine definition to the face also create a healthier, youthful look. We often start by contouring the forehead and temples. This creates the effect of a subtle, non-surgical reshaping of the face. Forehead injections also help to lift the eyebrows to create a more alert, jovial expression. Creating a more pronounced eyebrow arch using dermal fillers is one of the easiest ways to sculpt a more feminine appearance.
Next, fillers are used around the eye area to decrease lines or shadows that are creating a permanent “scowl.” This creates a very fresh-faced look when used in combination with arch-lifting fillers. Wrinkle correction can also be addressed when planning how to rejuvenate the eye area using dermal fillers.
Strategically lifting and projecting the cheeks helps to draw out buried or deflated cheek bones. The upper-cheek and lower-cheek areas are treated with different injection techniques to create a very natural, authentic shape. The effect is very radiant.
Dermal fillers are used to add volume and suppleness to the lips. It’s actually possible to change the lip structure using dermal fillers. While some people prefer to restore their original lip shape with fillers, others like to engage in reshaping.
Lastly, dermal fillers can be used to reshape the chin area. A squared chin can be given a more triangular shape. Fillers can also be used to tighten a double chin.
This list represents what a full “facial feminization” might entail. It’s also possible to simply focus on adjusting a specific area of the face using dermal fillers. For instance, a person who is concerned that a flat brow line is creating a more masculine look may benefit exclusively from fillers that reshape the arch of the brow.
What Happens When You Get Fillers to Look More Feminine?
It typically takes less than an hour for dermal fillers to be applied. While slight swelling and bruising may occur, these side effects tend to resolve on their own quickly. Juvederm is commonly used to create a more feminine, soft look. Boletero and Restylane are two other FDA-approved filler options.
How Long Will the Effects of Feminine Fillers Last?
The feminine appearance achieved through dermal fillers typically lasts between six and 18 months. Factors related to the type of filler used and your skin’s responsiveness determine individual results. Many people are satisfied with their results after one session. However, it’s possible to adjust results over the course of several visits.
