Have you ever noticed that as another year passes your appearance begins to change?
Time really is out of your control, but your youthful glow is not. As we age our features begin to change due to many different factors including sun exposure, diet, and the natural process of aging. Beginning around age 25, our production of collagen and elastin begin to decline. Our facial fat pads and bone structure begin to recede, and we are sometimes left looking tired and run down. You may notice hollowness under your eyes and near your temples, your jowls may appear to sag around your mouth and chin, you may notice deeper nasolabial folds, or sagging cheeks. In the aesthetics world we call this the “pyramid of age”. When we are young, we have high, full cheekbones, sculpted jawlines, and full temples creating a “triangle of youth”. As the aging process happens, this triangle of youth slowly inverts itself, becoming the “pyramid of age”. But not all is lost. There are ways to restore the “triangle of youth”.
Dermal fillers, with strategical placement, are great for restoring midface volume loss. This will recreate those high cheek bones you had in your 20’s and reduce the heaviness around your mouth and jawline.
Using a variety of dermal fillers, an injector can fill out the hollow temples and elongate your chin to help with facial structure and jawline definition.
Softer fillers can be used to replace volume in the nasolabial folds, creating a more youthful appearance. Creating a fuller lip will help with erasing the fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth too. With dermal fillers you will receive immediate results with very little downtime. Swelling and bruising for 2-3 days is completely normal, but you should be back to your everyday routine in as little as 24-48 hours.
With some help from our experts in aesthetics, we can develop a plan to help you look and feel your best. We can’t rewind time, but with dermal fillers we can do a lot to help reverse the pyramid of age back to the triangle of youth. I am talking about effective, anti-aging treatments that are proven to balance your facial features and give you back the confidence you never knew you had. And as always, be sure to protect your face from the sun, drink plenty of water, and wear sunscreen.
