How Do I Know Whether I Need Filler?

One of the Washington DC metro-area’s leading experts in Cosmetic Dermatology, Dr. Tina West offers filler injections at her Chevy Chase, MD office located at 5530 Wisconsin Avenue #925 Chevy Chase, MD 20815.

As humans, we all share certain physical characteristics. And we all share aging. Different people age differently based on genetics and on cumulative sun exposure over their lifetimes.

But one thing is the same: we’re all losing bone, fat, muscle and collagen every year!

What does that look like? While it may be more obvious in thinner people, everyone gradually loses fullness in the cheeks that we associate with youth (whether we realize it or not–that’s how our brains detect someone’s age).

So, as the face goes from more of an upside-down triangle shape to a rectangle, there is less volume there to hold up the skin–this is the reason that we start to see jowls.

Generally, if you look in the mirror and feel like you look tired when you’re not (or have people asking you if you’re tired), that’s the most common sign of volume loss.

The best part of my job is the immediate gratification and thrill that people get when they look in the mirror after a filler treatment… and see the face they used to see!
