Unfortunately, as we grow wiser with age our skin begins to lose elasticity and volume and the underlying bone structure that forms the shape of our face begins to deteriorate. This deterioration can drastically alter a face shape and as many people age they feel a sense of disconnect when faced with their ageing reflection. This decline in elasticity and volume can result in sagging skin, hollowed out cheeks and a general appearance of tiredness and “softness”.
Luckily for us all, the ongoing signs of ageing are no longer forced upon us and no longer have to be accepted. Thanks to advancements in technologies for injectable fillers an invasive procedure can be completely avoided or pushed well into the 60s or 70s. Dermal fillers have become a modern day anti- ageing hero, minimising fine lines and wrinkles by encouraging the body’s immune healing response. Working to replace the proteins found naturally in the skin, dermal fillers not only fill for an instant plumping effect but also work with the naturally occurring collagen, stimulating your own production to reinforce the work of the filler. Filler injections are very versatile and are used to rejuvenate thinning lips, add youthful plump to hollowed cheeks – filling fine lines around the mouth – and instantly turning back the clock. Dermal fillers are also becoming a very popular choice for those thinning with age who find their hands are looking bony and would like to gently fill the hollows alongside the bones.
Dermal fillers are not only valuable in the fight against the appearance of ageing, they are also an exceptional tool for those wishing to change the shape of their face in a gentle and reversible manner. COSMETIC 1 offers a range of options, with products that can maintain a correction from six months to four years. We usually recommend patients start with a shorter-term product and once the desired appearance is achieved patients can then move to a product with more longevity.
At COSMETIC 1, our practitioners are skilled in the placement of Dermal Fillers to re-balance and enhance your natural features. At a deep level, humans are naturally drawn to symmetry and beauty, faces that fit the GOLDEN RATIO have been proven to appear more desirable, approachable and admirable, the most beautiful faces in the world all fit closely to the proportions of the golden ratio.
With these golden proportions in mind, a consultation at COSMETIC 1 looks to first analyse the natural balance of your facial structure. Your clinician will photograph your face from various angles, speaking with you about your concerns and offering advice about the best way to create harmony with your appearance. Often clients approach us about one area of concern, and with a minor tweak to another area the original concern is rebalanced and no longer requires treatment.
Following the consult, your injector will carefully mark your face with a white pencil mapping the injection areas and planning the product delivery – ensuring a precise and accurate spacing under the skin. Throughout your procedure, you will be given time to look at the results in the mirror and your clinician will use a light touch when injecting, ensuring the product is applied gradually and to your liking. In general, procedures take around 15-30 minutes and you will have little if no physical downtime. Most patients return straight to work. We often find that the smallest filler injection can make dramatic changes to the overall appearance of your face. Some of our most common dermal filler procedures are chin and jaw reshaping, cheekbone contouring and nose reshaping.
