Facial structure can be dramatically altered by the ageing process, bone and fat pad loss, the hollowing of the temporal structures, and loss of mid-face volume. This renders your appearance, aged and gaunt. Your cheeks and jawline may lose their shape and definition, alongside loss of volume in the chin, with tear troughs sinking in, leading to the formation of jowls.
Dermal fillers are a cosmetic treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and restore facial volume, resulting in truly exceptional results. As we age we lose skin elasticity, collagen and volume. Hyaluronic acid is the injectable dermal filler of choice, used to rejuvenate and refresh your appearance, by supporting facial structures and tissues, drawing water to the surface of the skin, to restore, aging facial features.
Attractive facial features of youth combine smooth radiant skin with well-defined contours, full forward projecting cheeks, portray the triangle of youth. During our mid 20’s the ageing process begins, with the loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid, the moisture and building blocks of our skin’s structure, slowly break down and are lost from our bodies.
Replacement of high prominent cheekbones, can provide harmony to the facial structure as we age. A natural enhancement providing a youthful aesthetic appeal will restore hollow, flat cheeks with shape and contour.
Signs of ageing include:
• Volume loss to the cheeks.
• Rounding of the jaw line.
•• Hollow eyes.
• Formation of jowls.
• A downward turning smile.
• The loss of skin elasticity.
The facial triangle, beautiful in your youth reverses. Jowls form at the chin level and facial bones and facial muscles relax.
Three main causes of facial volume loss include:
Lifestyle – smoking, alcohol, sun damage and free radicals.
Hormonal changes – depleted levels of oestrogen, combined with lifestyle factors, accelerate facial definition and volume loss. The loss of hydration from hyaluronic acid from within the epidermal layer, alongside the destruction of collagen strands, within the mid to deep dermis, resulting in volume loss, sunken cheeks and sagging, dry skin. Free radicals from the environment, damage and weaken the skins cellular structure, causing loss of radiance and density, resulting in deep prominent wrinkles.
Redensification and hydration of the mid-facial region will restore high, defined cheek structure, adding volume to dynamic wrinkles in targeted areas. Combined with pre-periosteal injections, to rejuvenate the deep malar fat pads, and injections to the subcutaneous, superficial fat pads or sub-malar compartments, will support the hollowness of sunken cheeks, restoring height definition and contour, to refresh the ageing face.
Cheek fillers provide a safe alternative to surgery, are minimally invasive, with less recovery time, plump and restore volume immediately. The consultation time is 20 mins and the procedure takes 15 mins. Topical anaesthetic provided for comfort, local anaesthetic within the injection, lasts up to 12 months, depending on skin type, the severity of wrinkle, metabolism, area and volume injected.
