Women Rather Have Youthful Face than Body

eye rejuvenation treatmentResearch has shown that nearly 60% of women would prefer to have a youthful face to having a youthful body.

This suggests that reducing the visible signs of ageing is seen as more important than tackling signs of bodily ageing.

The survey revealed that 64% of respondents agreed that the shape of their face had changed as they aged and 44% noticed a reduction in cheek volume or fullness over the previous 10 years.

44% of respondents believed there was nothing they could do about lost volume in the face.

Loss of volume in the face can be very ageing. Not only causing lines and wrinkles to appear, but also loosening up the structure of the face so that tissues begin to sag, so that definition around the jawline and jowls fades.

Treating Loss of Volume

Filler Injections

Loss of facial volume is classically treated by directly replacing the volume using dermal or facial fillers.

Modern dermal fillers are smooth and can look very natural. While they are temporary in nature, the latest generation of long-lasting fillers gives results which last a lot longer. Longer lasting dermal fillers include:

Fillers can be used to replenish volume in the face, but there is another purpose too. Injection of dermal fillers can be used structurally to ‘lift’ the facial tissues into a more youthful position. This technique, often referred to as the ‘non-surgical face lift‘ or ‘8 point face lift‘ can achieve remarkable results in improving the youthfulness of the face overall.  Rather than just replenishing volume in an isolated area, the procedure gives a good general effect.

Collagen Boosting Technology

New technology uses a variety of techniques and methods to rejuvenate the face. The principle is to penetrate the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing and cell repair processes, boosting collagen production. Collagen makes the skin firmer and tighter, therefore younger-looking.

  • Ultherapy® uses micro-focused ultrasound waves
  • Sublime combines infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies
  • Sublative uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology
  • CO2 fractional laser is an advanced skin resurfacing system

Collagen-boosting works over a few weeks as the body has to respond and produce new collagen. This makes the skin look gradually better and better following treatment.
