Different methods are used to make the face appear more youthfull and beautiful. Especially non- surgical methods like Botox and dermal fillers are popular. Dermal fillers are degradable injectable gels that are injected into the skin to fill wrinkles and to give parts of the face a plumper shape or contour. The amount of gel that is injected ranges from tenths of milliliters to multiple milliliters. The result usually last between 6 to 18 months.
By using small amounts of injectables, subtile improvements can be made. The treated person will stay the same and others won't notice anything strange. When large amounts of injectables are used- sometimes together with plastic surgery- a face really changes* and someone can look unnatural and end up loosing part of her/his individuality.**
In the end people will start to look a bit the same.
* The model is enhanced into extremes, this is a computermodel.
