By 40, important proteins such as collagen and elastin fibres, responsible for keeping our skin plump and youthful, have started to breakdown faster – as we age our faces lose volume, most notably from the cheeks.
Without the fullness of youth, the depths of the folds and creases on the face increases, making the signs of aging more obvious. This can be especially noticeable after weight loss.
Injectable dermal fillers are used to replace volume in the skin, giving instantaneous natural enhancement of wrinkles, folds and facial contours.
Dermal fillers are substances naturally found in the skin, and restore a youthful appearance and resilience to skin by simply adding to the natural supply. Areas around the mouth such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines and vertical lip lines can be improved with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can also be used to give volume and definition to cheeks and lips.
Facial volumisation is a simple way to restore lost volume, giving you a fresher, more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are administered after using a topical cream or local anaesthetic to help numb the area being treated. *Treatments usually last for at least 6-9 months (18 months for cheek volumisation) and normal activities can generally be resumed immediately following facial injections.
*Note results may vary from person to person
