As we grow older, production of the proteins that keep skin taut, volumised and supported slow down. This causes the skin to appear less full and lines appear as the skin loses tension.
Fillers reverse the worst effects of the protein loss by restoring volume and plumping the skin. The result is improved definition, smoothing of wrinkles and years taken off the appearance.
Here at Mansion House Dental Practice in the City of London, we have selected some of the leading dermal filler products, which are proven to get incredible results. The procedure is relatively pain-free and fast enough to be carried out in a busy lunch hour, often with time to spare.
Lip augmentation – sometimes called lip enhancement – is a fast and relatively painless procedure for giving lips a natural bowed appearance. If you are conscious of your lip size, or would like to have more luscious volume, lip filler injections can provide beautiful results. With a small amount of filler, our experienced facial aesthetics dentist can restore lost curves and provide definition and volume.
The chin is an area that usually doesn’t get as much attention as the eyes or lips. However, chin fillers are a popular treatment here and are used to help enhance a weak chin, or to smooth out irregularities such as dimpling. The treatment is also known as a non-surgical chin augmentation. An injection of dermal filler is used to subtly reshape and remodel the chin for an enhanced facial profile, rejuvenating the appearance of the chin and lower face.
As we age, the structures of our face change, not just the quality of our skin, but also the underlying support causing the face to shrink in some areas, becoming thinner and less elastic. Some people lose fullness or volume – droops or sags are common concerns. Replacing volume in the cheeks is therefore of high importance when rejuvenating the face and one of the advantages of cheek augmentation is that it lifts the entire face, improving the appearance of under eye bags and hollows too.
Nasolabial and Marionette Lines
Marionette lines are long vertical wrinkles from the corners of the lips to the chin. These lines can occur with age, smoking and genetics and can progress to form jowls. We can lift these corners with dermal filler, adding volume and anchoring the corners higher up.
The nasolabial fold is the crease running from either side of the nose down towards the corners of the mouth. These creases become more noticeable as part of the natural ageing process. Deep nasolabial folds can be corrected with dermal filler, restoring volume and softening the appearance of these creases, leaving a smoother, refreshed appearance.
Jaw line fillers can help both men and women create a contoured jawline. Dermal filler is used to fill in lines, add volume where it has been lost, creating a lifting effect, and camouflaging the look of jowls. This will result in the jawline area appearing both tighter and lifted.
Tear trough fillers are a non-surgical solution that can rejuvenate hollow or sunken eyes, providing a fresher, more youthful and healthier appearance.
