BEAUTIFY YOUR FEATURES FOR A NATURALLY REFRESHED APPEARANCE
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
As we age, fat deposits in both our face and hands begin to deflate, which is coupled with the loss of collagen and elastin in your skin. This can cause skin to sag and have an uneven appearance, which can be a source of self-consciousness and concern for many.
Like the name suggests, dermal fillers are a minimally invasive treatment to create and restore volume to your skin that is lost through the aging process, or through improper care. They can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, treat facial volume loss, and act as an anti-aging treatment for hands.
THE AGEING PROCESS
Aging is a natural phenomenon. The ageing process, combined with years of sun damage, environmental factors and facial expressions can affect our appearance in many ways. Over time, facial contours change gradually and volume is lost in the temple, forehead, and cheeks.
Skin laxity in the jawline and lower face may increase, creating an overly jowly look. Often the nasolabial folds (the lines that move downwards from the outer nostrils towards the corners of the mouth); and oral commissure creases (the actual corners of the mouth), appear deeper due to the laxity of the cheeks.
There’s other major factors that are involved in aging – a decrease in naturally occurring collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA) in our bodies. These are crucial for maintaining adequate skin hydration and volume. As levels decline with age, we see an increase in fine/ deep wrinkles and a loss of elasticity, which results in a sagging skin appearance.
FACIAL DERMAL FILLERS
Dermal fillers come in two varieties: semi-permanent and temporary. Temporary fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a soft gel specifically formulated to act like the body’s own naturally produced substance. These types of fillers help to instantly and visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, or add fullness to facial skin.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® Restylane® Stylage® and Teosyal®, have become the most sought-after types of injectable fillers.
Softer facial wrinkles
Improved appearance of scars
Improved appearance of contour deformities
Improved appearance of sunken eyes
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in your body. It is a sugar-based substance responsible for nutrient and moisture levels in the skin cells. Healthy, young skin holds more hyaluronic acid, and is therefore smooth and plump. As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid in our body decrease, this impacting the appearance of our skin.
By injecting hyaluronic acid into wrinkles, sunken areas of the face, or into damaged facial skin, the filler substance replaces the lost hyaluronic acid and, therefore, skin looks younger, more even, and of overall better appearance*.
This safe, non-surgical treatment, delivers the fastest, most natural rejuvenating results.
