The use of dermal fillers in recent years has taken off hugely in large part due to their popularity with many celebrities, who have used them to contour faces and lips much as one might use makeup.
That aside, ageing is a fact of life, and an inescapable one at that.
As we live longer, and enjoy better health for most of those years and work for longer, it is expected that we will continue to care for ourselves, including our appearance in the process to put our best face forward.
In the ageing face, volume loss shows up as a gaunt, tired, or sad appearance, typically around the eyes, in the cheeks and in the lower face. In slimmer individuals, this may be apparent as early as their 30s, and judicious volume replacement of the whole face is a solution that can improve matters and last potentially for years.
What signs do people usually present with?
Judicious use of dermal fillers can help replace what is slowly lost over time, and maintain the rest, such that we can arrive into our 40s and beyond, still looking fresh, alert and rested and depending on how early we began to address these changes, surgery becomes optional rather than mandatory.
Here at Skin Essentials, we do not routinely offer packages nor do we just focus on lips or cheeks to fill.
Our initial consultation for all new patients is intended to assess your face as a whole, in still and in animation, to help Dr Imaan arrive at a bespoke treatment plan for you, with associated costs if you decide to go ahead. This plan is methodical, in that it is designed ideally to progress from the area of greatest need to that of least need, so that the parts each build upon the treatment that came before.
Keep in mind, as a guide, that for concerns visible to the patient that brought them in to see us, surrounding areas and their volume deficiencies need to also be addressed for best results.
For this reason, among so many others, we strongly encourage you to choose your injector wisely, and go in with an open mind for a consultation to get a feel for them and whether you’d be a fit rather than ordering a treatment you believe will solve your problem.
Below is a rough guide to the amount of filler each area will typically need over several sessions - keep in mind, ageing is an ongoing irreversible process and the best time to start is now if one is serious about ageing well.
