The Ageing Process
As we get older changes take place in our skin including loss of hydration, break down of collagen, fat and elastin, and weakening of ligaments and muscle tone. The result is an aged appearance.
Restoring Hydration and Volume
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Restylane are natural and safe products identical to substances naturally produced in the body which give volume and hydration to the skin. They require no allergy testing prior to their use.
Dermal fillers can be used to give a smoother and fresher appearance to the skin. They can help to lubricate and cushion the skin, softening lines around the nose, mouth, forehead and eyes.
Fillers can be used to define and enhance facial features. Restoring volume to cheeks and under the eyes (tear troughs) can give a fresh, rejuvenated appearance. Nose, chins and jaw-lines can be subtly reshaped to create facial harmony.
Soft, hydrating fillers specially designed for the lip area can restore fullness that has become depleted through time. The lip line can be rebalanced, defined and accentuated – anything from a mild enhancement to a full re-shaping of the lips.
How long does the treatment last?
Dermal fillers are laboratory produced products which mimic hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin. They are biodegradable and will last 6-12 months. They can be topped up when you feel the effects starting to wear off.
