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.
Whether caused by aging, hormonal changes, or from a lack of sleep, wrinkles can make you feel less like yourself.
Not only that, studies show when we lack confidence and project that outward into the world, we are less likely to do well in our careers and in our social life if we suffer from low confidence.
To communicate effectively with the people around us, we have to focus on the quality of our skin and face. One way to do this is to protect our skin from damage caused by UV rays. UV rays damage collagen and elastin fibers that are embedded in the skin. By using protection on the most sensitive areas of the face you can reduce your risk of damage.
Another tip is to use medical-grade moisturising eye creams and serums. These products should contain ingredients like tretinoin or retinol. This rebuilds collagen to keep your skin looking youthful and healthy. Other products that contain hyaluronic acids also give off balanced results.
These products provide incredible relief from a wide array of aging problems that many of us suffer from.
At our office, we use facial fillers to do everything from getting rid of tired looking eyes to providing eyebrow lifts. Below we have listed a few other ways you can benefit from facial fillers.
Your eyes don’t have to look tired, taking with them the youthful glow of the rest of your face. In fact, if you suffer from eyelid and peri-orbital hollowing, fillers such as Juvederm and Belotero could be the best possible option for you.
These fillers are used to ‘fill in’ the areas around your eyes and face that could use a boost. Your youthful facial features were made that way through excess collagen in your skin. As you age, your collagen is depleted, which causes symptoms like sad eyes.
Once you use dermal fillers or facial fillers to pump up these areas, you look refreshed and rejuvenated in a natural way. It’s the perfect solution for this annoying condition.
Another area where many folks have problems is lip lines. One of the worst things about lip lines is that they age you more than virtually any other type of wrinkle. They are obvious to most everyone around you as well.
Lip lines form around the mouth, typically where you smile. For women, these wrinkles begin to develop after you hit menopause. Deeper lines begin to form after menopause. This is because that hormone levels fluctuate and estrogen drops dramatically during this period. Other factors that contribute include smoking, drinking from a straw, and sun-damage.
If you’ve noticed that you are starting to form lip lines, then facial fillers could be the best option for treatment. Botox cosmetic fillers help smooth wrinkles back to your original youthful look. The result is fewer lines around your lips and greater plumpness that contributes to a healthier look overall.
Hollowed temples aren’t typically thought of when we are talking about wrinkles and facial aesthetics, but they create the structure of our face. The hidden eyebrow tail is often caused by hallowed temples and you will find that the temples create the shape and position of your eyebrows and the attractiveness of your eyes.
Dermal fillers are used to treat this condition by filling the areas around the brow line and in the temple to create a fuller look. By smoothing over these areas, you can enjoy a more attractive face and a more youthful glow.

Another issue that many people suffer from is a loss of volume.
Volume in the facial tissue is important because it is what gives you the youthful look most women and men wish to keep throughout their lives.
A loss of volume can deflate the skin and cause hollowing and atrophy overall. Fatty loss leads to this situation. However, by using dermal and cosmetic fillers to volumise your face, the result is the perfect balance between plumpness and concave.

Unlike Botox which aims to reduce or eradicate facial expression or movement lines, dermal fillers treat the static facial lines formed during the natural ageing process. When facial fillers are used in conjunction with Botox, the results can produce a remarkably younger-looking face. Cosmetic fillers are easy to apply, are fast acting, and have the ability to plump up the area to the point where a fold, depression, or wrinkle disappears.

As skin ages it loses the natural collagen that helps to support and shape our facial features. The result is deepened lines and wrinkles. In addition exposure to the sun, air pollution, smoking, and even stress can all be major contributing factors of early ageing. Dermal fillers work by replacing the lost collagen, thus making the skin tighter and filling out any tell-tale deep lines and wrinkles. By reversing the natural ageing process this quick procedure gives the patient an instantly younger appearance, which in turn helps to boost confidence.
In the comfort of our modern practice our expert technician will inject tiny amounts of hyaluronic gel underneath the skin. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a substance found naturally in the body – particularly the skin tissue. When injected into the facial area it can help to:
There are a wide variety of Hyaluronic dermal fillers in use including products such as Juvederm, Prevelle Silk, Elevesse, and Restylane. All of these are safe to use and are similar in that they contain a form of biodegradable, non-animal stabilised hyaluronic acid.
The process of cosmetic fillers takes around 30 minutes to complete and unlike Botox which only lasts a few months, results can last anywhere between 6 months and 2 years depending upon where it’s applied. Because our practice is well situated, if you’re looking for dermal fillers in Stockport or dermal fillers Wilmslow, it’s good to know that we’re only minutes away.
