Dermal fillers are among the most effective anti-ageing treatments. In the past they were used only to fill in wrinkles. The latest techniques use fillers to sculpt the face, restore youthful contours, enhance natural beauty and prevent ageing.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring gel that surrounds collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. In a younger skin it is abundant. It absorbs moisture giving the skin a soft and supple texture. With age this becomes depleted leaving the skin dehydrated, wrinkled, thin, and sagging. Hyaluronic acid-containing dermal fillers are injected into and under the skin to replenish hyaluronic acid. This smooths out wrinkles, plumps up the skin, restores volume and promotes collagen production
The best approach is to start treatment with fillers as soon as age-related changes in volume appear. This can be from age 35 and up. This should be continued as the years progress. But if you’re already in your 50 it’s definitely not too late! Fillers can take years of your age.
Areas which can be treated with Dermal fillers:
Lip fillers can turn back time on ageing lips and in younger patients can make pretty lips gorgeous.
With age the border of the lip becomes poorly defined and tiny “bar code” lines appear around the edges. This leads to lipstick “bleeding “. Although they are often called smokers lines they do not occur only in smokers. The lip volume is reduced resulting in thin lips and the corners turn down which can lead to an unpleasant expression. Lip fillers treat these signs to restore a youthful look.
With age we lose definition and fat in the cheek area. The loss of volume leads to a tired, gaunt appearance with decent of the cheek area nearest the nose and the formation of nasolabial folds. Fillers used to augment the cheek area can successfully lift the cheeks upwards and outwards reducing nasolabial lines and giving a soft, refreshed youthful appearance.
People often worry that fillers in this area will make them look chubby. When the correct technique is used this will not be the case. The treatment is tailored to each face. Enhancing cheek bones provides definition and has a slimming effect on the face. Gently adding volume to the specific points softens a gaunt appearance in a subtle and natural way
Fillers around the eyes
Beautiful eyes are a great asset. Unfortunately,the area around the eye is among the first to show signs of ageing. Loss of hyaluronic acid and changes in the structures underlying the skin produces:
- Drooping eyebrows
- Sunken appearance
- Under-eye circles
- Crow’s feet
- Temporal hollowing
This can give an aged and tired appearance to the face. Fillers can be used to correct these and restore a fresh, bright appearance.
It is often been said that if you want to tell the age of a woman, look at her hands. Hands can be a give-away if you have looked after your face but neglected your hands. Fillers can do wonders in restoring volume to the hands creating a soft, youthful look and feel.
The liquid face lift
The liquid face lift is a technique which uses injectables to lift and refresh the face. The technique was first described by Dr Mauriciau De Mayo, a Brazilian Plastic Surgeon”. He defined 8 points in the face which can be injected with small amounts of fillers to achieve this result. Since then the technique has developed. In expert hands it can transform a face.
