Filler treatments should be considered for a number of clinical and aesthetic reasons. They can be used to correct naturally occurring asymmetries such as the lips. They can be used to enhance lip volume improving your side profile and to camouflage gummy smiles. Through defining the lip border we can give a more youthful appearance whilst also framing that all important smile!
With age we lose volume especially in the mid-face. The cheeks begin to look flatter and the excess skin begins to fold around frequently used muscles such as the mouth causing deepening of nose to mouth lines. We can use filler treatments to replace lost volume and therefore soften developing lines and wrinkles.
Fillers can be used to strengthen the skin around points of weakness or where forces are applied regularly, for example the side of the face you favour sleeping on. Through placing small amounts of filler just beneath the skin surface we can support these weakened areas and encourage your natural deposition of collagen to structurally strengthen the skin.
The product; non-permanent filler treatments use Hyaluronic Acid in the form of a sterile non-animal based gel. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring within the body, however with age the production slows leading to a reduction in volume.
