In an era where we are all defined by our image and how we project ourselves to the world, it is not unusual that many of us wish to enhance our looks. The benefits of dermal fillers range from softening lines and wrinkles to restoring volume to ageing deflated faces. Patients often ask me “what’s in it for me?” Well, having a dermal filler treatment can give you a well needed confidence boost as well as restore self-esteem.
You may wish to look your best for that presentation so that you are next in line for that big promotion. If you are reembarking on the dating scene and want to look fresher and rested, dermal fillers allow you to put your best foot forward. Perhaps all your friends look great for their age and you wish to get in on the act. It is important to point out that treatment should never be obvious. People should say that you look well but should not be able to pinpoint or identify why. Your external appearance should mirror how you feel on the inside. Dermal filler treatments make you feel better about your self.
Juvéderm® Dermal Filler
Juvederm, dermal filler is a safe, natural filler containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar which mimics your own collagen and allows cells to hold water in the skin tissues, to maintain skin hydration from within.

I love my wrinkles (well, half of them)
I have facial fillers because I want to look like a really amazing 50 year old! I’ve never really been a fan of expensive products and trendy treatments or believed that they actually did anything that you could see. I wanted something that gave me natural-looking results, and made a difference to my face. Something that would be a good investment. Having facial fillers makes me instantly more visible to others so that I feel great about myself and how I look. This is my advice to anyone considering treatment. When it comes to reasons for choosing fillers, it really is all about you – so if it feels right, go for it!
Yummy Mummy? Absolutely
It’s hectic balancing my job with raising a 7-year-old, but I love it! However, I never want to feel like what I call a ‘school run Mum.’ My friends and I love trying new products and beauty treatments and facial fillers are just one of the things I do. They give me really natural-looking results and I hate looking fake. I won’t even wear fake nails! Facial fillers make me feel sexy and revived. If you make sure you go to the right practitioner, facial fillers can make you look fresh and gorgeous even when you’re juggling the mayhem of family and work.
Naturally, I want to look gorgeous!
Getting older doesn’t worry me, I don’t drink or smoke and I’m very into natural, holistic living. I smile a lot and noticed some smile lines coming through so that’s why I had facial fillers. They give me natural-looking results which suits my whole philosophy on life. Next month I’m doing the 3 peaks challenge of hiking 3 mountains in 24 hours. It’s going to be hard but I’m doing it to raise money for charity so that should get me through. If I could give one piece of advice to someone considering facial fillers, I’d say go and speak to a practitioner. The right one will help you get to results you’ll love.
Who says serious runners can’t be cheeky?
I don’t subscribe to the idea that as you get older you have to choose between your face and your figure. I had facial fillers because as a workout queen, my face was losing volume as my body was getting in shape. Facial fillers really plumped up my cheeks again and gave me natural-looking results which are really important to me. I also travel a lot for work so looking refreshed despite all the flying is great. I found talking to a practitioner helped me pinpoint the areas that I wanted help with so I would definitely recommend having a chat with them.

I lost some wrinkles, but none of my sparkle
As I got older, I felt like my face was looking tired and when you’re my age, creams and lotions do not make a bit of difference. I’m nearly 70 and facial fillers help me look amazing for my age. No one guesses I’ve had anything done. I like how facial fillers give me natural-looking results and my face isn’t frozen, meaning my eyes still smile when I do. Facial fillers make me feel like I’m the best version of myself, which is a great reason to do it.
50 Something, Ready for Anything!
I think the key to staying youthful is to never stop trying new things. I started my academic career at 48 and cycling at 54. Since then I’ve cycled from London to Paris and Paris to Nice and next year I’m doing a half iron man! I was scared to get facial fillers at first but when I finally got around to doing it I realised how silly that was. All it took was a few chats with my friends that have already had it done and I was sold. Talking to someone who’s had facial fillers really helps you decide whether or not they’re right for you, especially if you’ve been on the fence for a while.
