Injections into the facial contour have become hugely popular over the last few years in Europe, ever since the overexposure of American models on social media, such as the Kardashian sisters and other influencers who have several million followers on Instagram.
The criteria for facial beauty are constantly changing, and what was seen to be aesthetically pretty ten years ago is not necessarily still considered beautiful today.
Our role as an Aesthetics Doctor is, above all, to guide, advise and inform our patients in order to ensure they do not slide into an almost-permanent quest for change, and to avoid over-injected and/or over-operated faces.
With the “Texas Filler”, we focus on the notion of harmonising the contours and highlighting the areas of the face which should catch the light. This basis of aesthetic medicine comes into its own here and is the main objective of this treatment.
Facial contouring involves injecting filler products such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) primarily into the cheekbones and angles of the jaw.
The safest, most comfortable and most accurate injection technique is injecting with a micro-cannula, which allows us to map out and define the facial contours while keeping bruising and swelling to a minimum.
Nevertheless, we must remember that, given that it deals with injection zones that are spread right across the face, this technique uses a lot of filler product. In the first session, we can easily inject 4 to 8 blisters of hyaluronic acid to set the “foundations” of the face.
To maintain the effects, in general, the quantities injected 9-12 months after the first injections are often lower, usually 2 to 4 blisters depending on requirements.
It is important to note that, ideally, we recommend this technique for long and thin faces rather than rounder faces. You should expect the face to become slightly wider, and in the long term it will become squarer and more defined.
Like for all aesthetic medicine procedures, a quote is provided free of charge in our practice, and only an in-depth examination of your face will allow us to define your requirements.
