To be perfectly honest with you, I’ve never been interested in filler. I’m happy with my face sans injectables—and I absolutely do not think anyone needs filler, nor would I encourage anyone to get it if they weren’t already interested in it.
There’s no denying the fact, however, that fillers have been majorly trending for a while. I recently found myself faced with the chance to try hyaluronic acid filler for myself, and after some deliberation, I decided to go for it—mainly out of morbid curiosity but also because I think fillers get a bad name. It’s no accident that when you think of fillers, you might immediately think of “filler face,” or the strange, pillow-like effect that happens when people take fillers too far.
I wanted to try filler as a tool to subtly enhance my features rather than change them or try to hide anything. For the most natural-looking results, I enlisted the help of Claire Wolinsky, MD, board-certified dermatologist and filler extraordinaire.
