When you scroll through your social media feed, you may notice something interesting: Many celebrities’ faces are starting to look alike. This trend, known as “Instagram face,” has been the subject of hashtags on virtually every social media platform. The phrase is used to describe a particular look created by popular cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers and BOTOX®. Here at our Dallas, TX, dermatology practice, many patients ask how they can create a similar sought-after appearance without surgery.
Whether you want to look younger or contour your entire face, we can help you achieve your new look. In this blog post, we offer some guidance on what’s required to get the “Instagram look.”
What Is “Instagram Face”?
While there’s no single definition of Instagram face, you probably know it when you see it. The look typically involves plump lips, poreless skin, dramatic brows, and high, sculpted cheekbones. Sometimes uplifted eyes or thick lashes are used to complete the set. This concept has been made famous by people like Bella Hadid and the Kardashian-Jenner family.
The end result is a youthful wide-eyed, pouty-lipped appearance showcased in dramatic selfies. The person’s skin is usually clear and wrinkle-free, not appearing out of place on the red carpet.
It’s easy to understand why Instagram face is the new go-to look. It creates a rejuvenated, “woke up like this” glow that appears flattering no matter your age.
Nonsurgical treatments can be used to address nearly every problem area on the face and smooth away imperfections. If you want to look like an influencer and give a boost to your confidence, here’s a breakdown of how you can achieve the look you want.
Wrinkles are the most common issue when it comes to the forehead area. Whether you have horizontal lines stretching across your forehead or those frustrating “11s” between your eyebrows, BOTOX fades these unwanted lines that make you look older than you feel.
Preventative BOTOX treatments for those in their 20s can delay the development of deeper wrinkles that form each time you make facial expressions. These procedures, sometimes called “baby BOTOX” injections, involve small, precise doses to strategically protect your face from developing wrinkles.
With many of us working from home or attending class online, “Zoom fatigue” has become a real problem. Squinting at your computer for hours causes eye strain, hastens wrinkles, and accentuates stubborn dark under-eye circles.
Injectables, including BOTOX and dermal fillers, rejuvenate the eye area and restore a rested, wide-eyed appearance. Options such as JUVÉDERM® can give the brow a lifted look while minimizing crow’s feet.
Age affects every area of the body, and the cheeks are no exception. As we grow older, our skin produces less volume via collagen, and muscles in the face may begin to sag.
If you want a youthful, high-glam look, sculpted cheekbones are a necessity. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™, which restores volume in the cheeks, can create the high cheekbones that give your face the flattering definition it needs.
The nose is the central feature of your face and influences your entire appearance. Rhinoplasty (also known as a nose job) is the most well-known way to change the shape of the nose—but it isn’t the only option.
If you want the straight, slightly-upturned nose that so many influencers have, injectable treatments may help. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty techniques (sometimes referred to as a “liquid nose job”) balance out a bump or address asymmetry. This approach also has the added bonus of creating a smoother, contoured nose without recovery time.
One of the most iconic pieces of the Instagram look is a full, plump pout. First made famous by the likes of Kylie Jenner, it is now a staple of cosmetic treatments. Restylane® and JUVEDERM are fillers designed specifically for lip augmentation procedures. When used conservatively by a skilled injector, these fillers create beautiful, defined lips without an overly “worked on” appearance.
Chin & Jaw
A firm, sculpted jawline is a hallmark of youth and beauty. Unfortunately, unwanted fat and skin can collect underneath the jaw, creating a “double chin.” Strategically placed fillers can give the appearance of an angular jaw and add a finishing touch to your face. Nonsurgical fat reduction treatments, such as CoolSculpting® or KYBELLA®, can also reduce the appearance of a double chin and “turkey neck.”
Social media has played an enormous role in cosmetic beauty trends, and Instagram face shows no signs of stopping soon. With a few simple treatments, you can transform your appearance and face your feed with confidence.
