Try Before You Buy: Fillers, Braces and More

If you’ve ever wondered what you might look like post-filler, boob job or butt lift, now’s your chance to find out. Yes, we should be happy with our lot, but there’s always the burning "What if?" question. Which is why, when aesthetics guru and Instagram legend Tijion Esho told me about facial mapping, my mind was blown. A technology that uses 3D rendering takes a picture of your face and then feeds it into the computer, where augmented reality software reveals what you’d look like after the treatment. It’s essentially a "try before you buy" option. Esho refers to it as an "impact treatment" and tells me it’s like Face/Off.

“Instead of using makeup to contour, fillers are becoming the new method of manipulation, and you can do it all with a needle, cannula and 3D imaging within a doctor’s clinic,” says Esho. Before, it would have been a case of plastic surgery, but by using bespoke fillers, the possibilities are endless. From a more-defined jawline to a cute button nose or plumped-up cheeks, you can change your silhouette in seconds. However, always make sure to work with your consultant before you go anywhere near a needle means to ensure that you’ll see the results you desire.

Price-wise, facial mapping starts at £150 which includes a consultation and 3D rendering. If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, expect to pay from £1500 depending on what you're having done (tear troughs, lip fillers or nonsurgical nose job).
