As we progress through the early years of our lives from childhood through adolescence and into adulthood we become smarter and stronger each day. However, once we hit our twenties the ageing process starts to kick in, bringing with it many signs on our face and body that show the world that we are getting old. In this post we will take a brief look at the process of skin aging, and how facial fillers can help you to fight them.
The first signs of ageing tend to appear on our face around about our early 30s. This is the age when our skin starts to lose its ability to produce collagen and elastin, which are the things it needs to help it stay firm and springy. Once the amount of collagen and elastin starts to reduce, then repeated facial movements such as frowning and laughing will begin to leave marks on the face such as frown lines and crow’s feet. Our facial features can also begin to look more angular which tends to make us appear more tired and sad. Our previous lifestyle choices, such as sunbathing, also come back to haunt us at this age as pigmentation can start to show up on our skin.
In our 40s, all of these issues can start to intensify, with the skin becoming drier, and therefore lines and wrinkles appearing more pronounced. Another issue is the loss of subcutaneous fat, which again decreases the amount of elasticity in our faces and can cause our skin to sag and can dramatically change our appearance.
Unfortunately, the ageing process is a natural process and it is virtually impossible to prevent it or stop it. However, there is good news in that we can slow it down and potentially reduce the impact on our face and body.
Firstly, we cannot emphasize how important diet and exercise are. Making sure your lifestyle is as healthy as possible, by eating the right things and incorporating exercise into your day is one of the ‘easiest’ ways to keep your skin looking as young as possible as well as reducing the impact of ageing on your skin.
Of course, there are also several treatments that Cheadle Facial Aesthetics offers, including cosmetic fillers, that can all help to reduce the impact of ageing on your skin. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth out lines and wrinkles, while lip injections can enhance lip volume and shape. We also offer Botox, which is another treatment we can use to smooth forehead wrinkles and other lines on the face.
We offer a wide range of treatments here, that will help to keep you looking fresher and younger in a safe and non-surgical manner. If you are interested in any of our treatments, including an eyebrow lift, then please contact us today for a free consultation on 0161 485 7376.
The demand for such treatments as Botox and dermal fillers is showing no sign of slowing down, and in fact, recent research has shown that it is increasing by about 11% per year. Fillers have rapidly been accepted into many women’s beauty routines due to their versatile use – after all, you can use them for filling wrinkles as well as enhancing volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips and under your eyes. Based on our experiences as a provider of dermal fillers Wilmslow, we have pulled together this post telling you all you need to know about dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are the name given to any injectable gel that is used to fill in wrinkles or provide volume in areas of soft tissue. Dermal fillers have many uses throughout the body but are most often used for treating areas of concern on the face and skin. Dermal filler gels tend to be made from calcium hydroxyapatite, collagen, hyaluronic acid, or synthetic polymers but the most common type tend to be hyaluronic acid.
The key uses for dermal fillers Hale are:
– Augmenting and enhancing the shape of cheeks, chins, and noses
– Defining and plumping the lips
– Improving skin quality and texture, such as scarring
– Lifting and filling in wrinkles
– Smoothing out deep lines and folds
– Tear trough correction of under eye bags and circles
– Volumising and lifting the face
Dermal fillers work in different ways, depending on the type of filler used and how it is used, but in general, they work by plumping the area they are injected into thereby smoothing wrinkles and enhancing definition.
Dermal fillers have been safely used for many years but it is important to recognise that there may be some side effects experienced. The most common side effects are bruising, pain, redness, and swelling. All of these side effects tend to be temporary and if you do suffer from them they are very easy to rectify. Bruising, redness and swelling will all disappear of their own accord quite soon after treatment, whereas pain can be treated with some type of numbing cream.
