As we age our body slowly looses the ability to produce collagen and elastin, and certain areas of the face can begin to make us look tired and sunken. We spoke with Charlie Abboud, Head of Injectables LCA to get the low down on dermal fillers.
Five things you didn’t know about dermal filler:
1) As we age, the body’s decreased ability to produce collagen and elastin may result in a loss of volume in certain areas of the face. Dermal fillers can help restore fullness, re-volumise and hydrate these areas. They can be used to ‘fill-in’ deep wrinkles, ‘plump-up’ small areas such as the lips, and ‘re-volumise’ large areas like cheeks.
2) MYTHBUSTER - Fillers are not foreign to our body. They are made from hyaluronic gel – a natural sugar already present in the human body. As we naturally age, our body starts to produce less hyaluronic acid, which leaves us with the need to re-volumise and hydrate the area. Our dermal fillers are natural looking and natural-feeling and can restore fullness and volume.
Dermal Fillers treatments can be quick and have minimal discomfort and downtime.
When used appropriately, dermal fillers restore volume loss, they are not drastically changing the way we look. You won’t leave looking like a different person.
Dermal fillers used around the face give the skin overall great hydration, as fillers are hydrophilic.
