How do dermal fillers work?
We all know that plump cheeks and high cheekbones are the classic and notable signs of a youthful, beautiful face. In my industry it is called the ‘triangle of youth’. The process of ageing however causes this triangle to invert.
Around the age of 35, time, gravity, genetics, diet and lifestyle start (and accelerate) the process of face sagging, leading fat displacement and resulting in sunken cheeks and enhanced nasal labial lines.
Many of my clients want to correct this very typical result of the ageing process, but do not want to resort to plastic surgery. To correct this surgically, a cheek lift is one of the common procedures, however it is invasive and can be very expensive and there is a long downtime. But what is the option?
The Non-Surgical Route
Here at the Royal Tunbridge Wells rtwskin, we recommend a new non-surgical procedure called the ‘Liquid Cheek Lift’. This simple, painless treatment will provide immediate results and can create a beautiful, full looking mid face in a matter of minutes, with minimum bruising and downtime.
Physical beauty may only be skin deep, but how we feel about ourselves is often connected to how we feel we look. Over time, the reflection we see in the mirror doesn’t always represent that feeling.
We have a growing number of delighted clients; many state that after having had their cheeks ‘volumised’ with dermal fillers, they are amazed at the natural, flattering and younger look that is instantly achieved. The general consensus is that the freshening results match a ‘surgical face lift’.
What Can Dermal Fillers Achieve?
Replacing loss of the facial volume with dermal fillers can simultaneously achieve the following key results:
• Correct of the look of sunken cheeks
• Create full, round, plump cheeks that sit high on the cheek bone
• Lift of the ‘nose to mouth lines’ or nasal labial fold
• Lift corners of the mouth
• Lift and diminish the appearance of ‘marionette’ lines
• Lift of the jowl
Will Dermal Fillers Look Natural?
Here at the Royal Tunbridge Wells rtwskin we only use HA hyaluronic acid (HA) temporary dermal fillers and recommend two brands: Emevel Volume and Juvederm Voluma. Both have been specially designed to integrate into your tissue to provide subtle and even results without disrupting the natural contours of your face. Unlike permanent fillers, you are unlikely to feel the implant, but will certainly see the natural looking, refreshing results.
Results depend on the brand of dermal filler used; however as a general rule the results last from between 8 to18 months.
