So now, thanks to dermal fillers, you have the perfect pout! But wait, don’t go just yet, there’s more!
As we age, our body loses its ability to naturally produce as much collagen as it did when we were younger. Collagen is what helps keep your skin looking firm and helps keep its shape. We’ll start to lose around 1% of our collagen production per year starting at about age 29. So, by the time 50 comes rolling around, that’s about a 20% reduction in collagen! Add that to gravity, sun and free radical (pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke—even second hand!—and herbicides and pesticides) exposure, and a not so perfect skincare routine and things aren’t in our favor!
Luckily, we’ve found a way to give those cheekbones a boost, help with those tired, bagged out eyes, and fill in those hollowed out temples to keep you looking as young as you feel!
For your cheeks…
Fillers can be used to enhance cheekbones making them more prominent and defined, but placement in the cheekbone area also helps lift skin that may be sagging and loose in the hollows of your cheeks (where you contour darker!). Basically, it’s like a twofer! We like Voluma XC because it lasts for up to two years. In addition, patients that come back for treatment at around the two-year mark find that they use less product than they had to before. As always, we’ll need to consult with you and talk to you about what results you’d like to achieve and what is possible based on your anatomy, but take a look at what you might expect with filler in your cheeks…
Now that you have fierce cheekbones and a little lift, let’s move right up to an area most people forget about, the temple! The first thought when we think of fillers is usually lips, then maybe cheeks, but temples?? Yep! Doctors are taking more time to really understand how age affects the skin on our face and in the process they’ve discovered new ways to help reshape the face without surgery. One of those techniques is adding some volume in the temple region.
Adding filler around the temple can help fill in the hollowing as that collagen depletes and gravity starts taking its toll. Much like the cheeks, though, filling in the temple area can also help lift the skin near the front of your ear and around your jawline. It’s like a little pick me up! Just look at the different in face shape here…
So far, you’re looking amazing! Maybe, though, you’re lifted and contoured, but still looking really tired because of those “tear channels” or what we often call “bags” under your eyes. Fillers can be used to fill in deep channels or minimize the appearance of that strange place between being both puffy and sunken (a.k.a. “I always look like I need a vacation” eyes). Here we can use Juvederm or Restylane to get some good, natural looking results. These ladies look like they just took a week long nap and woke up 10 years less tired and stressed!
