Reverse the visible signs of ageing with cosmetic fillers

As we mature, we lose volume in our face. This then leads to wrinkles, folds, hollowness and sagging. cosmetic fillers are one of the most popular and effective treatments to reverse these signs and can easily correct this loss of volume and offer a much more youthful appearance.

How cosmetic fillers work

cosmetic fillers are a non-invasive option to restore a more youthful appearance and volume to the face, especially the lips, chin, cheeks, jawline, area under the eyes and nose. In certain cases, cosmetic fillers can also be used to reduce the visibility and improve the appearance of scars. cosmetic fillers work solely on the area of muscle receiving the injection, which allows the surrounding muscles to function as normal. This assists in the normal function of facial expressions, avoiding the ‘expressionless’ look that has been criticised in the past.

Cosmetic fillers are increasingly used to reduce necklines and in the treatment of brow lifts to achieve a more youthful arched brow, which rounds and softens the eye.
