Fill in wrinkles and enhance skin volume with dermal fillers!!
Love your reflection
We are born with an abundance of collagen in our skin, the body's production of collagen slows down In our mid-to-late 20's and continues to decrease dramatically after age 30. The collagen levels in our skin begin to drop by 1-2% each year. Collagen is the most abundant protein throughout the human body, it offers support and strength to everything from our bones to our fingernails. Collagen functions much like the frame of a house. Without the frame, your house will tumble down. Collagen not only supports cells to each other (like cement and glue) but it also forms sturdy fibril strands that work as supporting structures for the skin and more.
Due to reductions in collagen and elastin the face develops the common signs of ageing begin to develop such as moderate to severe lines, sunken cheeks, hallow eyes, lip thinning, deep naso labial folds and heaviness of the jowl line. This natural process can be further exacerbated by environmental factors such as sun exposure or poor skin care.
Cheek contouring generally means to accentuate the appearance and shape of cheeks. It typically refers to the enhancement of cheekbones, whereas facial contouring can be used to emphasise the temples, nose, jawline, and even the forehead.
The cheek area is called the midface and this is the main anchor of the face. The cheeks determine the structure of the surrounding features. During the young age our cheeks are supported in place and in structure by fat pads that are bound in place by collagen and elstin. As we reach our mid to late twenties our bodies stop producing collagen and our daily living habits and genes further depletes collagen and elastin. The fat pads therefore result in shifting and moving downwards towards the pull of gravity. This leaves the body with hallow sunken eyes, deep naso labial folds, deflated cheeks and pilling up of jowls. The skin looses its elasticity and become wrinkly and dull. Dermal fillers replace the lost structure and restores volume leading to lifting up of the face. Dermal fillers can make the cheeks pop up and create a high cheek bone, also where there is asymmetry of the face dermal fillers can achieve symmetry.
The mouth is one of the primary visual focal points used to distinguish overall facial aesthetic, and a primary feature in interpreting facial expression. When the corners of the mouth turn down or droop, it can cause the face to look angry, sad, unfriendly and unapproachable. There are two common reasons why the mouth may turn down at the corners:
Volume Loss & Skin Laxity: as the skin slows in production of collagen and elastin it is not equipped to support the skin, and gravity causes the skin to sag. What was once a plump and youthful cheek may now cause troublesome wrinkles around the mouth called “nasial-labial folds” and “marionette lines”. Overactive Anguli Oris Muscle: This is the muscle responsible for creating a frowning expression. When someone has a permanent frowning expression it may be due to this muscle becoming permanently angled downward.
Tear trough filler/ Eye rejuvenation
In our youthful days, when still producing enough collagen, we have fat pads around our faces and these pads are bound in place by collagen. As collagen stores deplete, the pads loose support and shift downwards due to gravity and this create hollowness under our eyes and give us shadows.
Dermal fillers are used to fill up the hallow spaces and gives back volume. This reduces the shadows and create a youthful appearance.
