How do fillers make you look older?

Excessive use of fillers distorts the natural features of the face, causing an aged appearance. When the face is distorted, it makes you look unnatural. And an unnatural look will make you look disproportionate. A hallmark of beauty is proportions.

Other options included permanent filling that was based on cement products and this combination of unnatural texture and having to wait for collagen injections meant that the filler wasn't as popular 15 or 20 years ago. The results of the filling can never be predicted 100%, but having the right doctor, one who knows how the filler reacts on the body and really cares about the desired result, can help to avoid any negative side effects and give desirable results. HA fillers last up to 18 months and, when dissolved, leave some collateral damage in the form of an inflammatory reaction to the filling and capsule formation. For long periods of time, fillers can stretch the tissues under the skin, which essentially speeds up the aging process “because those tissues aren't going to bounce the same way as you age,” Park Avenue facial plastic surgeon Andrew Jacono explained to HuffPost.

Putting unnecessary amounts of filler on the chin distorts the facial balance, making the lower third of the face look square rather than heart-shaped, which is associated with youth. Essentially, over time, the filler stretches and weighs the skin, which means you need more padding with every visit to the doctor, which will stretch your skin and tissue even more. Influencers like Kylie Jenner and the rest of her famous family have helped make the use of Facial Fillers more and more common.
