Add volume to your skin and lips with Dermal Fillers.
We all know time can take its toll on our skin. Repeated expressions can cause wrinkles. Initially, these wrinkles will only be seen when the muscles contract like when you smile or frown, and are referred to as dynamic wrinkles. As time goes by your skin gets progressively creased, so they can even be seen when your face is at rest. These are referred to as static wrinkles. Losing volume can make us look tired and older than we feel. While significant weight loss and long-term stress can play a part, it’s the gradual loss of the volume supporting the skin that causes our face to change its contours over the years.
As you age, your skin also loses volume and elasticity. In addition, there may be a depletion of fat around the eyes, cheeks and forehead.
How do lips change with age?
The lips are particularly vulnerable as they have an extremely thin outer layer, which becomes progressively thinner as the body ages. Over time the corners of the mouth can begin to droop (mouth frown), the v-shaped area of the upper lip known as the Cupid’s Bow begins to flatten out and lips lose their youthful fullness. Vertical lip lines that can cause lipstick bleed may also begin to appear. Dermal Fillers can be used for either lip enhancement or rejuvenation. It can be used to add volume to your lips, to improve border definition of the upper and/or lower lip, and to create a stronger Cupid’s Bow. It can also be used for lip enhancement to add volume and improve lip definition in younger lips. For rejuvenation, the vertical lines around your lips may also be treated. This gives a more youthful appearance and will also help prevent lipstick bleeding.
Depending on the type of Dermal Filler used, it can last between 12 and 18 months. The results of Dermal Fillers can be seen immediately.
