For most people, reaching 40 is a milestone and something that no one really looks forward to when it comes to the ageing process.
As we hit the big 4-0, we may start to notice that our skin becomes thinner and areas which were once plump and youthful begin to sag and hollow. This is due to the loss of substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid within the matrix of our skin. These substances contribute to youthful, hydrated and resilient skin. Surprisingly we also lose bone mass, fat and muscle tone in our faces, which keep the skin taught and smooth, which results in sagging skin, hollow areas such as cheeks, temples and the lower face and tired looking eyes.
At Face Matters, Dr Gabi and her team know that the onset of ageing can be more than just a nuisance for some. Watching ourselves age can be difficult and here at our clinic, we believe that everyone should enjoy treatments which can safely revitalise the skin and rejuvenate the facial area.
Therefore, we offer temporary dermal fillers, administered via injection to plump out lines and wrinkles, offer volume to sunken areas and even add definition to hollow cheeks and thinning lips.
Many men and women over the age of 40 can experience the benefits of treatment with injectable dermal fillers but it is very important to consult with your medical practitioner to discuss your requirements, medical history and expectations from the treatment. Dermal fillers are generally, extremely safe and Dr Gabi uses Juvaderm, an FDA approved, tried and tested product which delivers superb results. Depending on your needs, various strengths may be selected for the chosen indications. For example, a filler that is used to define the cheeks may be a thicker consistency to one used in the lips. There may be some downtime following treatment with dermal fillers, such as slight bruising and swelling, so it’s a good idea to plan carefully, when you have the treatment so that you are fully recovered before any special events or social gatherings. This can all be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation.
Dermal fillers, when expertly injected are meant to enhance and improve your looks and not change them. Subtle and gentle enhancement is our way at Face Matters and we always deliver the most natural results possible. As Dr Gabi is highly experienced and has treated literally thousands of patients, obtaining this ‘have they had something done?’ look is easily achievable. For male and female patients, natural is key and our reputation rests on delivering results that you will be delighted with and return to us for.
Time and tide waits for no man, but reaching 40 and beyond doesn’t have to mean giving in to the ravages of ageing. It can be a celebrated age with new and exciting beginnings. Dermal fillers are just one treatment offered here at Face Matters which can give you the confidence to get out there and enjoy life, whilst looking and feeling your very best yet!
