FILLERS IN HUDDERSFIELD
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid which the body continually produces naturally although it reduces with age. It holds 1000 times it’s weight in water within our cells giving deep moisture to the skin. As we age volume is lost from the face because of shrinking of the facial bones causing facial fats pads to drop and thinning of the skin. Volume loss is one of the main factors of visible facial ageing. This is why ageing causes sagging of the face as there is less support for the skin and muscles of the face. This sagging causes jowls and a heaviness in the lower part of the face.
Filler acts to give support and lift to the structure of the skin, helping to halt the ageing process. This gives the full, curved contours we had in our youth, it also reflects light from our skin giving a youthful glow. A contoured cheekbone lifts the facial skin into a youthful curve allowing light reflection from the side of the cheek. For any truly successful rejuvenation programme, the issue of age-related facial volume and contour change has to be addressed. In an aged face, the face appears flattened, droopy and dull with less light reflection. In turn it will make you appear to look tired, gaunt and hollow in the mid-face.
Loss of volume in our cheeks is one of the main causes for the formation of nose to mouth lines. We now understand that by replacing lost cheek volume we can often soften the appearance of these lines. This is why a lift of the upper and outer portion of the cheek is addressed first before the nose to mouth lines are treated directly.
As we age deflation of the lips happens. At A* Aesthetics, we gently re-plump the body of the lip to replace what’s been lost, rather than over-fill with a stiff product that makes the border between lip and skin look ledge-like. There are various techniques dependent on the lip shape at presentation, use of a cannula (blunt tipped) can be very nice to roll the lip outwards and upwards before final refinement with a needle.
There are over 200 types of filler worldwide, with different brands, various levels of quality and products for the whole of the face. At A* Aesthetics we use the Juvéderm Vycross range.
The Vycross range is Juvéderm’s premium brand, having full FDA (food and drug administration) approval, thorough clinical trials and safety records. This advanced technology means the product lasts longer. The patient has longer between appointments so a reduced number of times to be injected (great for needle phobics!) and is less cost to the patient longterm.
More benefits include:
- Less bruising
- Less swelling
- Less extrusion force (less pain on injection)
- Smoother gels (a more natural look)
