What’s the Best Dermal Filler for Facial Wrinkles?

*  Stars

Fine lines and wrinkles can make us appear much older than we feel on the inside. Repetitive facial movements, sun damage, and stress can all play a role in how quickly we appear to age. The good news is, you don’t necessarily have to go under the knife to achieve wrinkle reduction. Patients can enjoy smoother, younger looking skin with a simple, in-clinic visit. Dermal fillers come in a wide variety of formulas ranging from runny liquids to thicker gels. Each is designed for a specific purpose. While one filler may be better suited for plumping wrinkles around the nose and mouth, another might work better for vertical lip lines or crow’s feet.

Do I Need Dermal Fillers, Botox®, or Both?

*  Stars

With the wide variety of wrinkle treatments on the market, it can be hard to sort them all out. Some procedures are intended to correct the underlying cause of facial lines and wrinkles. Other treatments are designed to address the symptoms themselves. Both dermal fillers and Botox® are minimally-invasive and can be done with a quick in-clinic visit without the need for any downtime. When it comes to wrinkle reduction, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer for everyone. While some patients see exceptional results with a certain treatment, you may be better suited for another. The best way to determine what’s right for you is through an in-person consultation with a skilled practitioner who is familiar with facial anatomy. Botox® Botox® is a botulinum toxin-based substance that temporarily relaxes stubborn dynamic muscles. The injectable addresses the cause of wrinkles and relieves tension that can make us look older, tired, or even [...]

The Non-Invasive Treatment Revolution

*  Stars

Anti-Ageing Procedures Non-invasive treatments are ideal for those of us that perhaps possess a phobia or a reluctance to go under the knife. The method they use requires no incisions or removal of any body tissues. None of the tools used physically enter the body and may not break the skin, and so for these reasons, non-surgical procedures are becoming more and more popular. The ageing process can be slowed down and some visible effects can be reversed as treatments are becoming more and more accessible to the masses. You shouldn't have to put up with unsightly wrinkles or loose skin, and now you no longer have to. The Liquid Facelift One of the most popular and successful non-surgical procedures to combat the signs of ageing is the liquid facelift. Also known as the 8-point lift, this method involves injecting advanced dermal fillers into various areas of the face in order [...]

*  Stars

How And Why We Age? Unfortunately for us, ageing is just a part of life, and while there are many benefits that come with age, there are also downfalls when it comes to our appearance. As we age, our bodies slowly deteriorate in a variety of ways, which can lead to changes in our physical appearance. Skin loses its elasticity, which can lead to sagging, wrinkles and creases, especially around our face and neck. It is a daily battle with issues such as crows feet, laugh lines and droopy jowls. Not only this, but years of sun exposure can lead to dry skin and age spots. Prevention & Skin Care Treatments For Anti-Ageing While our skin may suffer, and show for it, over time, there are ways in which you can care for your skin and prevent some of the issues we face.

The Journey To Plumper Lips

*  Stars

Plump Lips And Restore Hyaluronic Acid Are you unsatisfied with the size and volume of your natural lips, but are perhaps reluctant to look towards surgical lip enhancement treatments? This new type of treatment can offer you the look you have been wishing for without the need for surgery at all. Non-surgical lip augmentation is both safe and effective when it comes to producing more prominent, defined lips that are feeling a little lackluster due to the effects of ageing or are perhaps a little disproportionate. This works by using dermal fillers that are skillfully injected into the lips to create the desired look throughout a fairly quick procedure; the treatment achieves immediate results and has practically no downtime post-treatment. The results should last around 6-9 months, which is great for a temporary treatment, but would mean that you require top-up, maintenance treatments to keep your plumper lip look. The [...]

Wrinkles and creases set in as we strive to cling onto our youthful appearance.
