As we age, our body begins to reduce the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen. While this is a normal process and is not life-threatening, it does result in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Although many people embrace the more refined definition that comes with the golden years, many people may feel under confident and unhappy with the appearance of their skin, and begin to suffer from low self-esteem as a result. In the past, the only option for wrinkled skin was either spending a fortune on face creams, undertaking a facelift, or both.
Today, there is a way you can reduce wrinkles without undergoing surgery or trialling every wrinkle reduction cream on the market. One of the most popular non-surgical ways to reduce the appearance of fine lines is with dermal fillers in Harley Street. Our team is specially trained in where to inject these fillers into your face, to leave you with a smoother, plumper look to your skin. And best of all, this option can be performed quickly, allowing you to get on with your daily routine as planned. Brilliant!
Are there any other advantages to having dermal fillers in Harley Street? Of course, there are!
As mentioned earlier, as our bodies age, they begin to produce less collagen than they did when we were younger. Alongside the reduction in hyaluronic acid, this leads to sagging in the skin and wrinkles. When you have dermal fillers in Harley Street, they will act as a natural collagen-booster, resulting in your skin remaining plumper and smoother for longer. Brilliant!
A common sight among many people who have undertaken surgical cosmetic options in the past is the scar that these treatments have left behind. Not to worry! With fillers, not only will your skin not be scarred as the procedure involves injections, but the natural plumping effect of the fillers will reduce the appearance of any scars you may have on your face. Perfect!
Traditional wrinkle reduction involved anaesthetic, surgery and of course, downtime which often meant taking time off of work to recover. Luckily, with fillers, as there is no anaesthetic and no surgery, there is also no downtime. In fact, this treatment can be performed in less than an hour and so, you can go about your day as normal afterwards! Just make sure you avoid sunbathing or tanning beds, as these can reduce the lifespan of the fillers.
The plumping effects of fillers can take up to 2 weeks to become obvious, but many of our patients have noticed a reduction in wrinkles immediately. However, this will depend on where you are having the fillers injected and will depend on other factors such as your age and lifestyle choices.
And finally, one of the most impressive aspects of fillers is how long they last. Depending on where they are injected on the face, they can last anywhere from 3-18 months, making them a great investment. Great stuff!
