Fillers are an effective, yet safe, way to improve the appearance of your face quickly and easily, but they come with risks – if administered without professional oversight they could leave less-than-desirable results.

Pillow face is often the result of overdoing it with dermal fillers, leaving cheeks and other parts of the face looking puffy and full.

1. Have Realistic Expectations

Pillow face is the result of excessive filler injections to attempt to lift sagging skin, and has become popular among celebrities who can afford the latest and greatest treatments. While fillers mask signs of aging without actually lifting, their use alone cannot produce the Triangle of Youth (high cheekbones, full cheek volume and an unambiguous jawline).

Writing down and reading out loud your expectations is the easiest way to avoid creating unrealistic ones, serving as a powerful reality check and helping identify any unrealistic, unachievable or fear-based expectations that might be holding you back from living life to its fullest. Once these have been removed from the picture, healthy realistic expectations can replace them allowing you to feel more confident, happier and able to cope with life as it comes.

2. Have Your Fillers Adjusted

Dermal fillers are an effective way of maintaining an appealing youthful appearance as you age. Unfortunately, many people overdo their dose of filler injections into their facial tissues resulting in what’s known as pillow face: an overabundance of filler in cheeks, nasolabial folds and other parts of the face can create this look which fortunately is often easily remediable.

Not only can it make you look like a chipmunk, this condition can also cause your skin to stretch out and loosen over time. If your face appears overly full, it would be wise to visit a cosmetic doctor who specializes in injecting fillers for facial contouring purposes and can safely inject these.

Avoid unlicensed practitioners offering cheap and quick treatments, such as those who offer cheap facial fillers. By visiting a cosmetic clinic that has been licensed and certified by your local health authority, it will allow you to select an experienced practitioner who knows how to apply facial fillers correctly.

3. Dissolve Your Fillers With Hyaluronidase

Dermal fillers can be an effective and convenient way to treat wrinkles and contour the face, yet overusing dermal fillers is possible. Injecting too much hyaluronic acid could result in overly puffy cheeks – known as pillow cheeks. Therefore, it’s vitally important that experienced clinics like Apex use only highly-trained doctors for injectable treatments specialized specifically on face treatments, since technique plays a key role when injecting dermal filler injections.

If your hyaluronic acid filler results in pillow cheeks, there are several effective and painless methods of eliminating them. Cades Cosmetic Clinic can use Hyaluronidase to dissolve them – we have numerous clients who’ve had their fillers administered by inexperienced practitioners who ended up giving them chipmunk cheeks but trust us to correct the situation – finding facial fillers that deliver youthful rejuvenation is the key!
