Skin ageing is a universal concern. However, poor lifestyle habits and high-stress levels can cause premature skin ageing in men and women. Most of us opt for expensive creams and facials to reduce our skin creases. However, the results are dissatisfactory and short-lived. Medicare Skin and Cosmetic Clinic brings you an array of advanced aesthetic treatments that can reverse ageing signs and assure you of visible results.
What is Anti-wrinkle injection Treatment?
This advanced minimally-invasive skin treatment performed by expert dermatologists involves injecting this extract into the target area to reduce the appearance of facial creases, fine lines and wrinkles.
It works by reducing the chemical signals from the nervous system to the target area, thereby decreasing the contractions of facial muscles and relaxing them. This ultimately reduces the visible signs of ageing by softening the overlying skin.
What Areas of the Face Can be Treated?
Leading dermatologists use this method to treat visible signs of ageing in the following areas:
- Forehead for horizontal forehead lines
- Nose for bunny lines
- Around the eyes for frown lines and crow’s feet
- Mouth for Marionette lines
- Chin for dimply chin
- Jawline for jawline definition
- Neck for neck bands and tighter looking neck
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers also known as injectable fillers, injectable cosmetic fillers and injectable facial fillers are soft tissue fillers which are injected into the skin to either fill in the lines or add volume to a shrunken area. Dermal fillers are most commonly used as a treatment for facial wrinkles, dark circle treatment (where dark circles have been caused by the hollow bone structure around the eye) and for getting the perfect pouts for the lips.
Dermal fillers are minimally invasive procedures performed by expert dermatologists to temporarily manage early skin aging issues to deliver a more youthful appearance. Fillers are composed of natural or synthetic substances in the gel form which when injected into the facial skin can diminish fine lines and restore fullness and volume to the face. The most widely used ingredient is hyaluronic acid that can instantly hydrate the skin and restore the skin to its earlier vibrancy by adding immediate skin volume. Others are all collagen inducers like calcium hydroxyapatite, polyalkylimide, poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres (PMMA) are also popularly used fillers to reverse signs of aging.
How does a dermal filler work as an anti-aging treatment?
The skin structure is made of an extracellular matrix composed of collagen and elastin fibers that provide the skin with its unique elasticity and tensile strength. Collagen encourages the structural integrity of the skin. As the fibroblasts stretch out through the collagen network, it creates a mechanical tension that regulates collagen synthesis.
During normal skin ageing, the collagen fibers deteriorate and there is an accumulation of fragmented collagen which reduces the mechanical tension. As a result, there is a decrease in collagen production and an increase in collagen-degrading enzymes. This promotes a cycle of structural loss of the skin and reduced skin integrity. In addition, there is also a loss of hyaluronic acid which is responsible for retaining water in the skin and keeping it well-hydrated.
Dermal filler is a gel form that is injected directly into the deep dermis layer to produce an immediate filling effect and correct localized loss of skin volume. Furthermore, the microspheres serve as a scaffold that promotes fibroblast activity and triggers collagen neogenesis. Over time, the newly synthesized collagen network makes the skin firm, and the gel carrier gets absorbed by the body and degrades. Simultaneously, the penetrating macrophages in the bloodstream slowly dissolve the microspheres of fillers. The filler regenerates the fibroblast collagen network and even stimulates elastin production. As a result, the skin regains its structural support and elasticity along with visible skin improvements.
Dermal Fillers Procedure
- Facial assessment and mapping
- Cleansing the injection site and numbing the skin
- Giving filler injections and then massage the target area to spread the filler uniformly
- Clean up and recovery within 1-2 days
What concerns are addressed by dermal fillers?
- Soften facial wrinkles and creases
- Re-contour the facial structural deformities
- Improve shallow contours
- Plump the thin lips and cheeks
- Enhance the appearance of recessed scars
- Remove or reduce the shadow of the lower eyelids.
