Regardless of how well we care for our skin by using sunscreen, eating healthily, staying hydrated and following a strict skincare routine, the effects of aging will catch up with all of us to some degree – and it can even be down to your genetics.
The problem is that the natural aging process causes our skin to lose:
Current research indicates that it’s not so much the descent of facial skin and tissue, but it’s the loss of volume that’s the main anatomical change as we get older – which is due to a natural reduction in our subcutaneous fat, and added to by a loss of skin elasticity. As we lose volume, wrinkles start to become more noticeable.
What are dermal fillers?
Whereas botulinum toxin
is used more for the pre-emptive treatment of wrinkles, dermal fillers are used to improve the appearance of wrinkles that are already clearly apparent on our faces.
Most modern dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance present in our body, and in particular our skin.
Therefore, the careful injection of dermal fillers can have a profound effect in producing a more rejuvenated appearance without the need for more extensive surgery, such as a face lift
Dermal fillers are most commonly used to treat the following areas, producing excellent results for patients:
Forehead wrinkles and furrows
Around the lips
Nose to mouth contours
Under-eye and cheekbone hollows
Crow’s feet around the eyes
Because dermal fillers are natural, they’re gradually absorbed by the body, so in order to maintain the effects, treatments need to be repeated periodically. They’re a fantastic way of making non-permanent changes to your appearance, without the discomfort and disruption that can some hand-in-hand with surgery, giving you the option to continue with filler treatments, or return to your previous look if you decide it’s not for you.
