In the age of self-improvement, popping to a cosmetic doctor to reinvigorate your face with some filler injections is not unusual. But it turns out overdoing it on the filler front can have some less-than-desirable long-term consequences.
Enter ‘Filler Fatigue’, a phenomenon some surgeons are warning their patients about. It’s different to the immediate mishaps possible from a single injection; the term is associated with the repeated use of filler injections over time.
The theory is that when fillers like collagen and Restylane are repeatedly injected into flesh, over time this can weigh down and loosen the skin. And so, each subsequent trip to the doctor would require more volume of filler to fill that already stretched-out skin.
Perhaps the trick is to embrace the beauty of natural lips à la Megan Markle or even improve your smile, Botox permitting.
