The Benefits of Injecting Multiple Dermal Filler Syringes

First things first… Did you know that one syringe of dermal filler equals 1 ml? That is only 1/5 of a teaspoon! Considering this, it’s easy to understand why there is a need to inject multiple syringes of dermal filler to achieve truly markable results.

Having multiple dermal filler syringes injected into the face can provide several benefits, depending on the individual's aesthetic goals and desired outcomes. 

Let’s cover the potential advantages:

Enhanced Volume and Contour:

Dermal fillers are commonly used to restore or enhance facial volume, plumping up areas where there may be a loss of volume due to aging or other factors. By using multiple syringes across various areas of the face, a skilled practitioner can strategically add volume to different areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, or temples, creating a more balanced and harmonious appearance.

Customization and Tailored Results:

Each person's facial anatomy and aesthetic preferences are unique. By using multiple dermal filler syringes, the practitioner can tailor the treatment to address specific concerns and achieve the desired outcome. They can carefully assess the individual's facial structure and distribute the dermal filler accordingly, ensuring a more personalized result.

Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation:

For individuals seeking an overall rejuvenation of the face, using multiple dermal filler syringes allows for a comprehensive approach. By addressing multiple areas simultaneously, such as the midface, lower face, and lips, the treatment can provide a more comprehensive and harmonious rejuvenation, improving overall facial appearance for truly remarkable results.

Long-lasting Results:

The longevity of dermal fillers varies depending on the type of filler used. For example, when treating the cheeks, we would use JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. For the lips (where slight to medium enhancement is required) we would use JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC or VOLLURE™ XC. When noticeable results are needed (as often with buttocks augmentation) JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC might be a good choice. 

When multiple syringes are employed strategically, the results may have a longer-lasting effect. By treating different areas of the face comprehensively, the filler can work together to provide support and structure, potentially leading to more durable outcomes.

Progressive Treatment Approach:

Some individuals prefer a gradual transformation rather than a dramatic change. By using multiple syringes over multiple sessions, the practitioner can take a progressive approach, allowing the patient to adjust and adapt to the changes gradually. 

This can be particularly useful for individuals who want to maintain a more natural appearance or who are new to cosmetic injectables and want to find their feet first.

For some patients who are new to lip filler (for example) but who are interested in achieving a Kissable Lips result, we might suggest injecting dermal fillers in smaller quantities amounts of dermal filler over time to ensure the lips adapt to the filler properly, and also that the patient adapts to their results.

Symmetry and Balance:

Facial symmetry and balance are important factors in perceived attractiveness. 

Multiple dermal filler syringes can help address any imbalances or asymmetries in the face. By strategically placing filler in specific areas, a skilled practitioner can restore symmetry, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Undertreating can Lead to Disappointment

Yes, we’ve all seen them; people who went a little too far with cosmetic injectables ended up looking more “yukkie” than youthful. Classic cases of overtreating. While overtreating has its obvious disadvantages, so does undertreating.

Undertreating with dermal filler refers to using an insufficient amount of filler or not addressing all the areas of concern adequately. This approach can lead to disappointment for several reasons:

Incomplete Results

Undertreating may not effectively address the concerns or achieve the desired outcome. For example, if the goal is to add volume to the cheeks but an inadequate amount of filler is used, the results may be subtle or unnoticeable. 

This can leave the individual dissatisfied as their expectations were not met.

Lack Of Balance And Symmetry

The face relies on a delicate balance and symmetry between its different features. Undertreating specific areas can disrupt this balance and create an asymmetrical appearance.

For instance, if only one side of the face receives filler while the other side remains untreated, it can lead to an imbalanced or unnatural look.

Limited Longevity

Dermal fillers are temporary solutions, and their longevity varies based on the type of filler used. Undertreating by using a minimal amount of filler may result in shorter-lasting results.

When the filler is not adequately distributed or the desired areas are not properly addressed, the effects may fade quickly, requiring more frequent touch-ups or additional treatments.

Continued Dissatisfaction

Undertreating can leave individuals feeling dissatisfied and frustrated with their appearance. It can be disheartening when the desired improvements are not achieved, and the original concerns are still noticeable.

This disappointment can affect self-esteem and confidence, which were initially the motivations behind seeking the treatment.

Missed Opportunities For Comprehensive Results

Undertreating may prevent the individual from experiencing the full potential of dermal filler treatments. By not fully addressing all the areas of concern, they miss out on the opportunity to achieve comprehensive results and a more harmonious facial rejuvenation.

How to Avoid Disappointment with Dermal Fillers

To avoid disappointment, it is crucial to communicate openly and clearly with the practitioner about your aesthetic goals and concerns. 

A skilled and experienced professional can assess your unique facial anatomy, recommend the appropriate amount of filler, and ensure you receive a customized and comprehensive treatment plan to meet your expectations.

It's also imperative to choose a qualified practitioner who has a thorough understanding of facial aesthetics and the appropriate use of dermal fillers as well as the amount of dermal filler required to minimize the risk of undertreatment and maximize the likelihood of achieving satisfying results.
