As we ‘grow up’ we notice our skin becoming less firm and less elastic, causing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The combination of these visible skin changes, as well as volume loss, are responsible for the aged appearance of the face.
What causes volume loss?
In our youth, we have strong bones and muscles, and natural fat pads that provide shape and contour to the face. Volume is lost through resorption of bone, shrinkage of fat pads and muscles, as well as loosening of ligaments. These all contribute to the facial changes you see, which can make you look tired and sad when you are not!
Dermal filler treatment for cheek augmentation:
This lost volume can be replaced using revolumizing & contouring dermal fillers. Here at MKSkin clinic, Milton Keynes, we use a variety of dermal fillers depending on the result required, to revolumize and support areas of fat and bone loss.
The revolumizing & contouring technique requires dermal fillers to be injected into strategic anatomical landmarks of the face to replace the lost volume and provide additional support to the facial tissue. This results in subtle enhancements and a minimisation of the effects of facial aging, so you look more refreshed and youthful.
Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment, containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the skin and helps to keep the skin hydrated. As we age, naturally occurring hyaluronic acid decreases. Dermal fillers not only help to hydrate the skin but also help to replace the volume loss. This helps to lift, plump and rejuvenate the skin, restoring a youthful look. Results are visible instantly.
