The main signs of ageing to the mid and lower face appear due to support and volume loss, which naturally occurs as we age. This can be accelerated by excessive exercise, weight loss or illness. We also produce less hyaluronic acid and collagen after our early 20s, which adds to the ageing process as our skin becomes drier and less supportive of facial tissue.
However some of us simply desire more fuller lips, or more defined cheeks to improve our sense of aesthetic well-being. With the use of facial fillers we can replenish lost volume, enhance contours of the face and lips to help restore a more youthful appearance. In clinic we use Juvéderm®, Scupltra® and Radiesse® brands of fillers depending on your individual needs.
