Pumping Up Volume Lacking From The Skin
At some in our lives we may look in the mirror and notice our skin is appearing loose. The volume of a youthful face gradually diminishes and some may opt a little extra boost of volume in certain areas where they feel they are lacking.
Help is at hand in the form of dermal fillers and volumisers; an increasingly popular solution for a little bit of assistance without the trauma or downtime of a nip and tuck.
Listed below are some examples of popular brands which our readers have been happy with. Fillers and volumisers can give you more self-confidence without having to worry about any long term side effects. More over, the hyaluronic acid present in them works in tune with the body.
Naturally found in the skin, hyaluronic acid preserves moisturising levels in the skin and can boost tone. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful moisturising agent, the quantity of which in the dermis decreases over time. As a result, the skin dries out and can become fragile, and the first wrinkles appear. Facial fat, muscle and skin mass progressively sag and the face becomes hollow.
Here are Dr Thevendra’s top recommendations for getting the volume back to your face.
The Restylane family can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), lipstick lines and marionette lines.
Restylane are based on stabilised hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin and manufactured using our patented technology called NASHA. This produces a filler gel that many believe is one of the most effective and advance in the world.
