As we age, we start to lose volume in certain areas of the face which can make us look tired and sunken.
This is caused by the body’s decreased ability to produce collagen and elastin along with changes to our bone structure, fat pads and muscles..
Unlike wrinkles which require muscle relaxants to soften them, facial volume and folds require a dermal filler to help re-volumise and hydrate the area.
Made from hyaluronic gel – a natural sugar already present in the human body – our dermal fillers are an affordable way to replicate the function of this naturally occurring substance and can restore fullness and volume in numerous facial areas.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment used to rejuvenate the face by erasing fine lines and giving your skin a much-needed hydration boost.
There are four factors that contribute to facial ageing including skin, volume, muscle and bone.
Over time the cheek fat pad or ‘malar fat pad’ starts to drop as a result of volume loss. This can have a considerable effect on other areas of your face and dermal fillers help to define your cheekbone and fill in areas as volume diminishes.
These folds start at the sides of the nose and run down to the corners of the mouth. As your cheek descends it can exaggerate these lines creating deeper folds. Dermal fillers support this area and re-harmonise the mid face.
As we age, the junction of our lower eyelid and cheek becomes depressed and hollowed. This can cause a tired and dark appearance no matter how much sleep or rest you get. This area is referred to as the tear trough an can be rejuvenated by the insertion of dermal filler above the eye socket bone to plump and hydrate the under eye ‘bags’.
The chin can appear too small or hidden in the lower region of the face. In some cases, especially men, dermal fillers can add definition and a more masculine square jaw.
Corners of Mouth
This area can become more apparent and begin to turn down as a result of pressure from the mid face and the constant pull of a muscle known as the Depressor Anguli Oris. This can make the face look sad and aged.
There are many attributes that make lips appealing including the border, volume, balance and symmetry. Dermal fillers can both enhance a younger lip and volumise the ageing lip.
Jowls, or sagging of the lower face is caused by a loss of collagen and elastin creating an ageing effect. Fillers in this area help to re-create a jawline and restore facial harmony.
