Sink, sag and wrinkle.
That’s what the natural aging process does to our faces. We lose about 10% of fat in our face at the age of 35, and up to about 10% goes again every decade after that. Not that women don’t like a sharper, chiseled visage, but losing fat around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, forehead – youthful volume essentially, can make one look old and haggard.
A convenient, effective (and safe) way to bypass surgery to look younger today is the injectable hyaluronic acid filler. These are made of biodegradable hyaluronic acid molecules which the body breaks down naturally over months to years (depending on the type of filler used) so it is not permanent. So a good way to look at these is there is always room for freshening up or improving the appearance as our skin and structure changes ever so gradually over the years.
So for those who feel they need to put some volume back to their faces, we’ve put together 4 ways fillers can enhance your appearance.
Problem #1 Strong Smile Lines and Sunken Cheek Bones
Also known as nasolabial folds or “laugh lines”, these are two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. While these are common anatomic features, with aging, they become prominentand age a person considerably. These deep wrinkles can be smoothened our directly (on the lines themselves) with hyaluronic acid fillers, but the problem with these tend to originate with sagging cheeks higher up. For a more natural-looking reversal, try Volume high definition lift. These fillers feel extremely natural but are volumizing fillers so they restore the youthful curve to the cheeks and lift at the same time, alleviating depressing smile lines – killing two birds with one stone!
Problem #2 Sunken Cheek Hollows
The problem with looking too thin is sunken cheek hollows makes one look unhealthy, and even a little tired or ill. Cute little children usually have chubby and roundish faces, yes?
Try Filler Hydrolift, a nifty technique of injecting very soft, plumping fillers into both sides of the cheeks, restoring youthful volume with very natural results.
Problem #3 Dark undereye circles and fine lines
Dark undereye circles are not confined to the aging or old, although they do generally get worse as you age. Contrary to popular belief, these are not always caused by undereye pigmentation, but could be caused by the tear trough deformity. Deep tear troughs are characterized by a sunken appearance which results in a dark shadow in the lower eyelid, giving the appearance of looking tired even though one can be quite well-rested!
If concealers don’t do much to cover up these dark shadows, try Revitalift Undereye, a method of injecting very soft, watery undereye fillers to plump up the sunken hollows. Because these are often injected just beneath the skin of the lower eyelid, the plumping effect often reduces the appearances of fine lines and has an instant brightening and hydrating effect.
Problem #4 Dehydrated skin and large pores
Revitalift Face is a skinbooster treatment where tiny droplets of hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the skin. Because hyaluronic acid is a chief molecule of water, absorbing up to 200 times their weight, they result in much improved hydration from the inside out. Think of this as your skin’s internal moisturizer! Expect some real skin firming, pore minimization and a glowing effect.
