Take a holistic approach
It’s easy to focus on an individual facial feature we’re not happy with, but a great way to look your best is to view your face as a whole, when considering treatments. The face can be split into three distinct areas – upper, mid and lower – and they actually age at different rates. The key to retaining a fresh, natural look is to create balance and harmony across all three areas.
Getting a natural look
It’s possible to achieve subtle, natural-looking results, and still look distinctly “like you”, by employing the full range of options that modern anti-wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers, double chin treatment and skin treatments and products offer. To completely appreciate how these treatments work together, it’s important to understand the natural ageing process. During a consultation, your clinician will explain the ageing process, answer any questions and discuss which treatments can help achieve your goals.
Ageing is more than skin deep
As our face ages, it’s easy to focus on visible signs such as wrinkles. However, the signs of ageing are often the results of changes to the deeper layers of the face.
What causes wrinkles?
When we’re younger, our skin springs back easily when we make facial expressions. As we age, our skin loses some of its elasticity. This loss of bounce combines with the repeated muscular action required to smile, squint or cry to cause wrinkles and folds to become permanent.
Where did the volume go?
Over time, the shape and contour of the face changes. Facial volume is gradually lost and the skin becomes thinner, making the effects of gravity more apparent.
The beauty of combination treatments?
Combining both anti-wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers, double chin treatments and skin treatments can help create a balanced, refreshed effect.
