Dermal fillers are effective for improving the appearance of static lines and wrinkles typically caused by a loss of volume and skin ageing. The following areas may benefit from treatment:
We all begin to lose our natural stores of hyaluronic acid, elastin and collagen from a surprisingly young age. Couple this with the fact that the fat pads in our cheeks begin to move downwards with gravity, and our cheeks can take on a hollow, ageing appearance. We can use dermal fillers to give back some of the roundness and definition associated with younger skin.
- Chin augmentation:
We can use dermal fillers to add definition to your chin to create a more youthful appearance. In addition to dermal fillers, or instead of, we can also use wrinkle reduction injections to prevent your chin from dimpling – a problem that is often more visible when a person is crying.
- Crow’s feet:
If you have deep wrinkles extending from the corners of your eyes even when your face is at rest, then dermal fillers may be a solution to fill and smooth out the appearance of this lines to make them less visible.
The décolletage is an area of the body that often shows a loss of elasticity and the effects of sun damage. The skin in the chest area can begin to look thinner, wrinkled and even emphasise your neck bands. For many people, it’s the neck and décolletage that gives away their age. Dermal fillers can be used to create volume and smooth out the décolletage area.
- Frown lines:
If you have vertical frown lines that look like a number ‘11’ even when your forehead is relaxed, you may feel that they are making you cross and unapproachable. Dermal fillers can noticeably improve the appearance of these deep lines.
Even with daily care and attention, your hands may well be showing the signs of ageing. Skin laxity and a loss of volume can make your hands look wirier and more wrinkled than a few years ago, giving away your true age. Using small quantities of dermal fillers in your hands, we can restore the youthful definition and hide the veins and underlying structure that are more prominent in older hands.
If you’ve always had naturally thin lips or you’ve noticed that your lips have recently lost some of their previous definition, dermal fillers offer a proven way to enhance your lip shape. We take a measured approach to add volume without exaggerating your lips unnaturally.
- Marionette lines:
Located just below the corners of the mouth, marionette lines get their name because they look like the deep grooves on either side of a marionette puppet’s mouth. If you have visible marionette lines, it can make you look sad or angry even when your face is relaxed. Again, we can use dermal fillers to fill these lines.
- Nasolabial fold:
If you have deep ‘smile’ lines that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth and are visible all of the time, they can be addressed using dermal fillers to minimise the appearance of these ageing static lines.
For anyone wanting to change the shape of their nose without surgery, dermal fillers may be a suitable option. We can use dermal fillers to create symmetry and make subtle enhancements to your nose.
- Smoker’s lines:
So-called smoker’s line are the short vertical lines that can cut into your lip line and cause lipstick to bleed. Although they’re more common in smokers thanks to the repeated action of pursing the lips around a cigarette, anyone can get smoker’s lines in reality. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth and fill out these lines, creating a softer, younger-looking appearance and better lip definition.
- 8-point lift:
The 8-point lift is an exciting treatment where we use dermal fillers at eight key points of your face to address a number of lines and wrinkles, and restore lost volume. With an 8-point lift, we can take a more holistic approach to create better symmetry and balance, and enhance the overall appearance of your features. This treatment can achieve a subtle but effective face lift without the need for surgery.
