Austin Brewer, facial aesthetic practitioner in Bournemouth, appeared on UK Talk Radio to discuss the impact of ageing on the face and the various cosmetic treatments available.
With increasing pressure from magazines and tabloids to look younger, more men and women are seeking cosmetic treatments to reduce the signs of ageing. Whether it’s to feel more confident in a job or to have a fresh-faced look, we feel that a youthful appearance is a sign of beauty.
What happens to the face as we grow older?
As we grow older our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, making our face less voluminous. Gravity takes its toll and ultimately our skin sags, which can become quite noticeable. Up to 10 years ago, people chose facelifts as the ideal treatment, yet the recovery time for this surgical procedure has led to a search for less invasive cosmetic treatments, such as facial fillers. Austin Brewer says, “‘Facelifts have had their time now, what we’re looking at now is putting that volume back in to somebody’s face giving them that youthful appearance to make them look like they did without having to use a facelift, it’s not about pulling it up its about putting the volume back in’.
Facelifts can result in quite drastic changes to the face shape, whereas less invasive cosmetic treatments such facial fillers can provide a more natural look.
What are the psychological effects of looking younger?
Psychologically, no one wants to look older, and your appearance impacts your self-esteem. By using facial fillers to look younger in your face, this will mirror your confidence and ultimately makes you feel happier!
What are some ways to achieve a more youthful complexion?
Volumisation of the face can be executed with facial fillers. Older facial fillers only penetrate the layer beneath the skin, whereas Juvéderm infiltrates deep under the fatty layer and are different to other hyaluronic based fillers, as they emulate and grow the existing collagen at the same time.
Which areas of the face would you use dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can be used in many areas of the face but are most commonly applied to the cheeks, jawlines and the corners of your mouth. It is also used in noses, foreheads for an overall effect of plumper skin. Dermal fillers produce immediate results and within 3 months it will gel with your own collagen.
How often would need to top up dermal fillers?
Regular facial filler top ups are needed every 6 months to a year, whereas Juvéderm fillers can last up to 3 years, depending on your preference.
