In my experience as an aesthetic practitioner, I have realised that many women visit my clinic with the idea of getting wrinkle reduction treatments, when what they actually need is mid-face volumisation which is achieved with fillers.
As we age, the bony orbit around the eyes becomes bigger due to bony re-absorption, and the cheek fat pads start to descend, resulting in a tired look around the eyes. Some people can also get heaviness in the naso-labial area with increased fat decent. All of these issues can be rectified using a robust filler that will lift the muscle and give projection. The difference it can make is remarkable. It’s much better to treat the cause with filler, than to chase lines with wrinkle reduction treatments.
When you visit my clinic, I will give you a free, hour-long consultation and get to know what it is you would like to achieve. The majority of my clients want to achieve a very natural look, so that the treatment is not obvious. They simply want to look less tired and more refreshed. Many of my clients highlight their dislike of their jowls, wrinkles and rough texture to their skin. All of these issues can easily be rectified without having to resort to expensive surgery and more invasive laser treatments.
