As we age, it's a fact that we lose elasticity in our skin, over time we can also lose definition and volume in the facial area resulting in wrinkles, lines and more obvious folds and furrows. In our youth we have natural fat pads that provide shape and contour but over time these also begin to shrink and gravity takes hold.
Dermal fillers can be an excellent option for restoring lost volume and improving definition. Fillers may also be the right option for you if you're looking to smooth wrinkles in the eye area, cheeks, forehead, jaw, lips and mouth area.
Achieving a natural-look with dermal fillers is absolutely possible, the key is taking a holistic view of the face. A comprehensive facial assessment is really important and from there it's about following the personalised treatment plan provided by your appearance medicine specialist. Best results are achieved by gradual treatments with subtle improvements each time. This approach results in a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance rather than looking like you've 'had work done'.
Dermal fillers are not the same as anti-wrinkle injections (or B-Tox). Fillers contain a synthesized sugar molecule and provide volume or can be used to fill wrinkles and lines. Whereas anti-wrinkle injections work to relax the muscles that, with repetitive movement are the cause of wrinkles and lines.
