There’s no part of the body that’s more susceptible to the unwanted effects of ageing, than the face. There are some people who think that fine lines and wrinkles are a sign of character, while others just want to turn back time and regain their youthful look. Luckily these people can rejuvenate their face by undergoing cosmetic procedures, using minimally invasive injectable treatments, or even with face lift surgery.

The facial skin starts to develop lines, wrinkles and volume loss as a result of age, sun damage, stress, gravity and other environmental factors. Dermal fillers are one of the most effective cosmetic treatments used to restore the loss of volume in the face. Dermal fillers work together with the remaining collagen and elastin in the body, to replace the volume that’s lost through ageing, as well as smoothing and evening out the area being treated. The collagen, elastin and proteins that keep the skin looking plump and youthful, begins to drop from the age of 25, and it’s when these levels decrease when you start noticing the signs of ageing.

The smile lines, or laughter lines that form between the edge of the nose, to the corner of the mouth are known as the nasolabial folds, and these folds separate the cheeks from the upper lip. The deepening of these nasolabial folds are a common concern that affects many people and they occur when gravity pulls down the fat and other soft tissue that usually sits high on your cheeks, Gradually this begins to create a wrinkle, crease or fold, and they generally become more pronounced as a person gets older.

Dermal fillers can successfully re-volumise areas of the face and injections of hyaluronic acid will restore the skin’s lost volume, smoothing out the lines and wrinkles. This improves your looks, enhances your profile and leaves your face with a natural expression. Fillers are a non-invasive, cost-effective alternative to cosmetic surgery for replacing the volume that’s been lost through facial ageing. The results achieved by using dermal fillers for the nasolabial folds are stunning and very natural looking.

A dermal filler treatment for correcting nasolabial folds takes about 20 – 30 minutes and a local anaesthetic injection is usually given to minimise any potential discomfort during the procedure. There is no downtime and you can return to work or your normal activities immediately. The results are visible immediately, with more improvements in the skin volume becoming noticeable in the following weeks. The dermal filler injections last between 9 – 12 months, and are naturally absorbed back into the body as time passes.
