Signs of ageing start around the eyes and wrinkles are most common around the eyelids. Given the eyes are seen by everyone, people look for wrinkle treatments on-masse.
Wrinkles are formed as a result of muscle activity and are associated with ageing because as we age, skin loses collagen and becomes progressively thinner.
Loss of volume (fat and bone) leaves the skin unsupported and more prone to gravitational forces from muscle activity which leads to the subsequent development of wrinkles.
All three structures responsible for wrinkles must be addressed for optimal results; skin collagen, muscle activity and loss of volume.
Dermal fillers: Replace lost volume in the mid-face and gives you a fresh rejuvenated youthful look.
Intra-Dermal Fat Grafting: Is a popular new treatment as it restores volume by utilising your own fat tissue for a natural alternative to Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers.
All surgery carries risk. A second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner is recommended before proceeding
