We all know that ageing can be a nuisance. Seeing flaws and imperfections develop in our skin tone, texture and quality, is an unwelcoming aspect of the passing of time that none of us really want to experience. Luckily, we are now living in a world where we are spoilt for choice when it comes to the range of cosmetic treatments on offer, to improve the appearance of ageing skin.
A hugely popular treatment for not only lines and wrinkles, but to replenish lost volume, hydrate and improve the overall appearance of our complexion is the use injectable, temporary dermal fillers. Dermal fillers contain a substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body, responsible for youthful, hydrated and healthy looking skin. In recent years, treatments using dermal fillers have become more widely accessible and desired, due to many TV and film celebrities undergoing the treatment, to enhance their complexions for the red carpet or on camera. However, some people seem to be taking this treatment to extremes and far too often we are seeing oversized lips, puffy cheeks and strange looking faces, which seem to have been ‘over-filled’. The result of which can be more ageing than flattering and unscrupulous and this ‘plastic’ look can give this treatment a bad reputation.
At Face Matters in Chester, we don’t approve of an ‘overfilled’ look and instead opt for what we believe is a ‘natural and safe approach’ to the use of temporary HA dermal fillers. Dr Gabi Tschoepe is highly qualified, trained and experienced in all aspects of injectable treatments using HA fillers and believes that ‘less is more’ when using the substance. “You’re able to make subtle changes with dramatic effects” she explains. “With a very small enhancement, I can improve someone’s skin appearance, quality and texture so that a fresher, more youthful look can be achieved. It is a doctor’s responsibility to look at a patient’s face as a whole and to make sure their features are balanced perfectly and that not any one feature is over treated; as this can lead to a patient looking older than they actually are, which is certainly not what we aim for here at Face Matters”.
We only use the very safest products, which have been tried & tested and have a proven track record for delivering superb, safe, natural and lasting results. Therefore, our patients can be confident of a superb service, high-quality products and beautiful results that they can be proud of.
If you are considering treatment with dermal fillers, it’s always advisable to do your research beforehand and any reputable doctor will request a no-obligation consultation to assess your individual concern, medical history and desired results, prior to going ahead with the treatment. This is something Dr Gabi insists on here at Face Matters as this vital meeting gives you the opportunity to gather all the information you need, regarding what to expect during and after treatment and any aftercare that may be required.
