Dermal Fillers in Scottsdale: Why It’s Better to be Underfilled Than Overfilled


Dermal fillers are a very effective way to lift and contour your natural features and treat more profound wrinkles. But I see many people with poorly done or overfilled faces. This produces an unnatural look instead of the more natural rejuvenation they wanted. When it comes to dermal fillers in Scottsdale, slow and steady wins the race.

Facial Alienization Due to Bad Filler

Dr. Steve Harris of London coined the term “alienization” to describe what happens to faces when lip fillers or cheek fillers are overused. The facial distortions of some of the people he saw were so severe that he thought they no longer looked like a part of our species.

Dr. Harris used diagrams to show how poor filler leads to very sharp cheeks, too-chiseled jawlines, winged brow bones, and large, flat lips. He blames some of the poor use of fillers on social media. Celebrities and influencers who overuse lip fillers or cheek fillers present a picture to the world that isn’t natural. Everyday people then strive to achieve this look.

He also blames practitioners for alienization. He does not believe practitioners should knowingly inject their patients to the extent that they look otherworldly. I agree.

Can You Undo Dermal Fillers?

Another reason to avoid using too much filler at once or getting injections too often is the process of having to undo poor results. If you are unhappy with your look, you may need injections of an enzyme called hyaluronidase to dissolve your fillers. There is no guarantee that these injections will work. They may leave you with less filler than you wanted.

Sometimes, you must wait for fillers to dissolve naturally to undo your original injections. This process can take a year or more.

Underfilled is Better Than Overfilled

My philosophy is that facial balance and rejuvenation is a process. I don’t believe that we can achieve that with a single treatment. A step-by-step approach produces more subtle results and helps my patients enhance their natural beauty. Dermal fillers should help you look like a rejuvenated you, not like someone famous who overdid it.

Getting cheek fillers and lip fillers in multiple sessions also lets you view the results as you go along rather than live with the appearance of a poorly filled face. It also allows me time to go over your results with you and have an honest conversation about the need for future injections.

Your anatomy is unique, and I customize your dermal filler treatment to fit your face. I firmly believe in the Skin Salvation motto, “Everyone will notice, but no one will know.” The people around you should wonder how you stay youthful, not wonder, “What has she done?”

  • Cheek contouring
  • Jawline sculpting
