A life of laughter brings crow’s feet; stress will give you frown lines; and age will seem to make your eye sockets sink; these are all evidence of living an authentic life, but sometimes, a little less evidence would be nice. We at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic understand that while you have lived your life to the fullest, you may not want it to show up on your face prematurely, to have every emotion you’ve ever felt etched into the lines of your skin permanently. However with dermal fillers in London you can soften the signs of ageing and give yourself a fresher appearance with a more youthful look.
What are dermal fillers?
This anti-ageing treatment is minimally invasive, non-surgical, and non-permanent, allowing you to adjust the signs of ageing from year to year at will. The use of these fillers can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and plump up areas of the face that may have lost volume; thus restoring your once youthful contours and providing you with a softer more natural fresh look that will have people asking for the secret to your apparent youth.
Dermal fillers in London are made of hyaluronic acid (HA) and are injected under the skin to provide a cushion that plumps up your facial structures, which may have lost mass and tissue due to the normal ageing process. This filler is naturally created by the body, but as we age, that production lessens and the skin begins to lose elasticity.
Treatments for the upper face
Crow’s feet – More kindly known as laugh lines, these may be evidence of a happy disposition, but are evidence of ageing too. HA fillers can be injected into the soft tissue where the crow’s feet are evident, to smooth out the lines and plump up the area around the eye for a fuller fresher look.
Under-eye – As we age, the area under the eye loses supporting fat and collagen creating a more sunken-in effect which can make you look tired, a treatment of HA filler, called ‘tear trough’ treatment, can be administered to the under-eye area, to restore the plumpness experienced in youth. This will not make the area appear puffy, just fuller and more youthful by rejuvenating tired eyes.
Forehead lines – Over time, these lines that once formed an expression of surprise or worry seem to permanently fix themselves to our foreheads as a sign of age, but with dermal fillers in London we can plump up these crevices to give a more full, soft and rounded forehead free from the worries of life and ageing.
Glabella lines – More commonly known as frown lines or number 11 lines, can fix a permanent expression of displeasure on your face, that little crease between your brows speaks volumes, but it’s not something you want there permanently. An HA filler injected into this area can smooth out those lines, returning your expression to a kinder and softer look.
Using fillers in the upper face can result in making you look less tired and more awake, this fresh look is a sign of youth and energy, so that your face reflects what you no doubt still feel inside.
