The 'Unnatural look'
after Facial Enhancement

Project Face Design

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, subtle 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 in conjunction with plastic surgery - a face really does change* and a person may look unnatural and eventually lose some of their individual appearance.**

The model is enhanced into extremes, this is a computermodel.
