07 Jul Don’t Forget Fillers for a Beautiful Wedding
Summer wedding season is here, and if you’re part of the party—whether a bride, groom, parent, or guest—you want to look your best. RefinedMD offers a wide variety of dermal fillers so you can turn back the clock and restore volume you’ve lost over the years (or give you volume where you’ve always wanted it). Most dermal fillers are made using a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid (HA), which means results are immediate. We create natural HA in our bodies, and it draws moisture to the area, which is why HA fillers look so natural. However, there might be a small amount of downtime so this means you’ll want to schedule those filler appointments now.
The most common side effect of dermal fillers is temporary swelling. This is typically mild and tends to go away within one week. There is also a small chance of bruising, which also dissipates after a few days. Whether you’re a veteran filler user or new to the game, you’ll want to give yourself at least one week between filler appointments and the wedding just in case. Fillers are one of the most-requested treatment options because they’re fast, results are immediate, and they provide dramatic yet natural-looking results.
Where to Get Fillers
The trend used to be focusing on fillers in just one part of the face (usually the lips). Lip fillers are still extremely popular because full, marshmallow-y lips are an inherent sign of youth. Plus, they are very kissable and that’s exactly what you want on the big day. However, today’s overall filler trend leans more towards the holistic. People are opting for subtle all-over fillers rather than a more aggressive approach or targeting just one area.
Some of the most popular places to get fillers include under the eyes. Fillers can literally fill in the hollows of the eyes, which happens naturally as we get older. Hollow undereye areas make us look tired, older than we are, and can lead to dark circles and bags. Cheeks have also long been a must-have filler area. Our cheeks fall with age, dragging down the face and making some people look gaunt. A sign of youth is full, voluminous cheeks. If you put fillers in the jawline, you get the Ariana Grande effect (everyone looks younger and slimmer with a contoured jawline). The same is true of the chin, especially for those with recessed chins. Finally, there are the temples. It’s one of the first places we tend to lose facial fat because the area has so little of it to begin with. Schedule a consultation with one of our expert injectors, or we can simply go over target sites before your appointment.
What to Pair with Fillers
Botox and fillers have long been common bedmates because they address different signs of aging. Fillers replace (or create) volume that is often lost with age while Botox freezes muscles that cause unwanted lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases. They are both injectables and you can get both during the same appointment. Botox takes about one week to work and can present with mild bruising post-injection, so it should also be performed at least one week before any big event.
Many other treatments pair well with fillers, but not in the midst of wedding season when you want fast results and zero downtime. We recommend an in-office facial to help you get your skin wedding-ready. This is also a great time to upgrade your at-home skin regimen with medical-grade products—especially sunscreen if you’ll be attending an outdoor wedding. The right home products can make all the difference and can tackle a myriad of skin issues such as fine lines, poor tone and texture, hyperpigmentation, laxity, and much more. Our skin is an organ and it changes with the seasons (and stress!) so you always want to make sure your skin care routine aligns with what your skin needs right now.
