Wrinkles may be a sign of a life lived, but they are also a constant reminder of the slow ebb of youthful vigour and the gradual approach of old age. Skin can become drier, thinner, with deep lines and loss of volume.
In the eternal battle against ageing, there are now a range of options available in the area of skin rejuvenation, such as dermal fillers which offer a minimally invasive way to turn back the clock on wrinkles and deep lines.
Science of Ageing
The science behind skin ageing is definitively linked to the diminishing production of collagen and elastin by the body. Collagen is the support protein for skin while elastin keeps skin firm and wrinkle free.
Through the years, lifestyle and environmental factors contribute to the effects on the skin, such as sun damage, smoking, hormone levels and genetics.
Along with the effects of recurrent facial muscle movements, such as smiling and squinting or frowning, it is not surprising that lines and wrinkles appear, some deeper and more visible than others.
Not every wrinkle is suitable for dermal fillers, but there are a number of areas of the face best for treatment.
The area’s most commonly injected with fillers to slow down ageing include crow’s feet, marionette lines around the nose and mouth, thinning lips, sagging under the eyes and furrows between the brow.
Dermal fillers work by rejuvenating the skin without having to resort to drastic measures like surgery. Often referred to as a “liquid facelift”, fillers have the benefits of a surgical facelift without the need for invasive surgery.
With dermal fillers, skin can reclaim the appearance of timeless beauty as skin is plump and facial lines reduced.
Dermal fillers are a very popular, safe and long-lasting solution to the facial ageing, and can help boost self-esteem and aid in looking and feeling great.
