Soft-Tissue Fillers: New Anti-Aging Breakthrough

Return to News Articles

Traditionally, rejuvenation has been achieved with a face-lift by surgically tightening the skin. Today, a multitude of minimally invasive procedures are aimed at rejuvenation without the risk, recovery time, and expense of major surgery.

With current breakthroughs in facial rejuvenation like soft tissue fillers, it is now possible to combat signs of ageing, restore what nature gave you in the first place, and achieve a more youthful appearance, affordably.

As you get Older your Face changes Shape

One of the newest trends is targeted dermal fillers that are designed to address specific regions and solutions. The skin's natural aging process manifests as contour changes; the depletion of fat located just beneath the skin; and the loss of dermal collagen. The result is that we look drawn and instantly older.

The effects of age and gravity change face shape substantially. When we're young, the area across our cheek is wider than our chin. As we age, this sags and can make the face look more rectangular. The less pronounced our bones the greater opportunity for skin to sag. Dermal fillers are great for people whose faces narrow from the eyes down as they get older.

Fillers will add volume to places that need augmentation. It's an all-ages process that has more to do with tweaking what you were born with than turning back the clock. Although, age-related changes are often automatic once you restore what the ageing process has taken away.

Soft Tissue Fillers can combat signs of Aging

Have you got deep folds between your nose and your mouth; or folds around the corners of your mouth? Wrinkles in your cheeks or around your chin? Have you got sunken cheeks? Is your skin loose and lacking elasticity?

It's best to use soft tissue fillers that comprise of a completely natural substance which achieves a visible long-lasting aesthetic result in the treatment of facial lines, wrinkles, folds, shaping facial contours and lip enhancement.

One example of a natural product is Restylane which adds volume to your skin without effecting your natural expression. It is non-permanent and absorbed naturally over time, so it's your choice as to when to have further treatment to maintain the effect. It also allows you flexibility as you can have one or more areas of your face treated. On average the effect lasts six - nine months.

Another product that people are currently talking about is Radiesse™ which lasts for 18 - 24 months. It's the newest non-surgical facial contouring filler on the market delivering an immediate, longer lasting result.

Already developing a reputation as the 'racing car' of dermal fillers it offers superior versatility for both cosmetic and reconstructive use without surgery. The answer is in its durability, longevity, and versatility. The unique composition of Radiesse™ provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results.

A Word of Warning

The right choice of dermal filler should be determined during a consultation with your doctor.

Consumers have an insatiable appetite for new treatments as well as existing treatments that have been refined. One final word of caution regarding soft tissue fillers, especially for the European market where there is a proliferation of substances available in each country. Patients often forget to inform their physicians of their history with previous treatments, or may simply not recall the names of the fillers they have had in the past. Most physicians concur that one should avoid any injection of a resorbable product on any site that has been previously injected with a non-degradable product.
