As we get older, one of the biggest factors that age the face is caused by a decrease in collagen and elastin, sun exposure, and the natural loss of subcutaneous fat. This is where facial muscles work more closely with the skin surface, resulting in the formation of smile lines, jowls and crow’s feet.
The facial skin also stretches, causing a drawn, hollow appearance notably under the eyes. The problem is not the bagginess and tired look – the problem is due to the loss of fat beneath it.
However, the signs of ageing do not have to be inevitable. Although wrinkles and heavy creases may still appear despite your best efforts, you can use dermal fillers in these areas as a simple treatment that dramatically removes that tired, drawn look.
What can dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines, restore volume and fullness in the face. This treatment is specially administered into your skin to:
Fuller lips with dermal fillers
Most people choose dermal fillers as a great way to enhance and reshape their lips. The dermal filler is administered into the lips using specially designed techniques, such as tunnelling and threading. These techniques stimulate the gradual production of collagen, promoting the full effect over the period of 4 to 6 weeks.
In order to minimise pain and discomfort, an anaesthetic is provided before treatment. While minor redness and swelling can occur, this will subside over 1 week.
Treating wrinkles with dermal fillers
Facial ageing wrinkles and creases generally appear due to the loss of some natural acids within the body. Dermal fillers are an effective way to reverse this process and rejuvenate the face. The treatment involves gently administering the dermal filler into the facial skin to achieve a plumper and youthful appearance, without the need for surgical procedures.
A single treatment usually lasts between 6 to 12 months, depending on your treatment plan. Dr Carmen Munteanu will discuss your treatment in detail, expected results and aftercare, as well as answer all of your questions.
Are dermal fillers safe to use?
Yes, dermal fillers are an effective and safe treatment solution due to its compatibility with the human body. In fact, the substances within dermal fillers are naturally present in the body, acting as a network of transfer for essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells.
