One of the things people commonly say to me when asking about cosmetic injectables is “I don’t need anything (yet).”
What they mean is, they feel they are too young for anti wrinkle treatments or especially, for filler treatments, usually because when we think of someone who needs some “work”, this is what we think of.
Well. This is where my passion for primary prevention, ie General Practice, which is the speciality focused on preventing things from going south in the first place, shows.
Prevention is always better than cure, so I encourage people to be proactive about their skin just like their health.
So if it feels like one day, we literally wake up, and there is a mass of wrinkles where there used to be lovely smooth skin:
We begin to look grumpy while concentrating and have comments to that effect.
There are hollows where there used to be lovely soft dips- in our cheeks and under our eyes.
There are sags where there used to be none…
If that is you, then we’ve missed the opportunity to prevent and have moved to the “cure” stage. Which is more time consuming, worrisome and expensive.
Some will simply say, “Why bother!” and carry on. Others will say “I embrace my wrinkles!” to which I say, more power to you, and good for you.
But, for someone who is very much wash-and-wear, I am rather vain about my face, especially since I don’t wear makeup but do like to look good for my age.
Exercise, as great as it is for your heart and general health and mood, isn’t as good for the rate at which you lose fat, including from your face; it predisposes to fat loss from the face, resulting in the “runner’s face” – wrinkles, hollows, eyebags and jowls.
So small amounts of filler, used wisely, and in a way that fits your budget (keeping in mind filler is about $500-650/ml depending on thickness and where it is placed and how long it is expected to last), injected every 6-12 months in small increments is far more subtle and gradual than a sudden injection of 6-8ml of filler (assuming anyone has an extra $5000-10000 lying around!) in one hit:
29 year old busy mum of many, looking tired and drawn with early under-eye hollows and mid face volume loss. Top: before anything. Bottom: after 0.5ml filler to each cheek.
Lady in her late 40s with years of midface volume loss. Her deep eyebags worried her the most, but we had to restore the cheeks first before her eyes began to look better. Total volume used over 3 months- 5 mls.
