Are the lines on your face adding years to your age?
HOW AGING IMPACTS YOUR SKIN
The aging process is not kind to your skin. As you age, your skin gets thinner and loses fullness. Sun exposure dulls and deepens the colour of the skin. You develop folds between your nose and the edges of your mouth ( nasolabial folds). You make hollow folds below the edges of your mouth and chin( marionette lines). Your jaw starts to sag into jowls.
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN
Your hormones change and result in thinner and more crinkled skin. The fat pads in your cheeks start to fall and diminish, giving you a more hollowed out and drawn appearance. Stress accelerates this process.When the strengthening and supporting fibre in your skin known as collagen becomes weaker, sagging and jowls become evident. Your body becomes depleted of hyaluronic acid – the substance that gives your skin a dewy, radiant and glowing complexion. Hyaluronic acid is a gel like substance that naturally occurs between the fibres of collagen and elastin in your skin. This is what we replace during a volume lift.
Teosyal™ is the product we prefer for volume lifts at [Better] Medical Centre. It is closest to the hyaluronic acid your body naturally makes and requires the addition of less protein. We also prefer Teosyal because it delivers more results with less product. It lasts longer. It features specialized product variations and concentrations for different areas so you will receive the best results.
THE ADVANTAGES OF FILLERS
Filler adds volume and hydration to a sunken, thinning face. Filler can enhance your lips, plump your cheeks and fix an irregular jaw line. Fillers such as Restaylane/Perlane™, Juvederm™ or Teosyal™ can fit into your medical aesthetic options.
SEE OUR RESULTS BELOW
On this patient, notice these improvements
- Cheek Augmentation: we have added a more youthful facial volume by enhancing her cheeks and cheek bones,
- Jaw line: we have straightened out the dents in her jaw line so it now appears softer and less droopy.
- Lip Augmentation: her lips now look fuller yet natural – appealing but not excessive.
- Lower Eyelids – they look tighter and less crinkled. But no work was actually done on her eyelids. This is actually just a bonus consequence of her cheek augmentation!
Volume Lift (non-surgical) at Better Medical Centre: No Other Treatments
This is a special, non bruising technique to add back lost volume to the mid-cheek. The loss of volume as you age or lose weight leads to sagging skin and crinkling. Here is the result after just 1 syringe of Teosyal™, part way during our treatment.
Another syringe will complete the result to this patient’s satisfaction.
HOW LONG DO THESE PRODUCTS LAST?
Teosyal™ has products that have been designed with different gel particle sizes that are utilized for different purposes – from eliminating tiny lines, to enhancing facial contours to adding back volume. The newest addition to the Teosyal™ product line is Ultimate – it can provide results that last longer than 18 months.
All hyaluronic acid products need a touch up after a certain length of time. Since this product, like your own skin, is a natural product, it slowly metabolizes, so your new face will gradually revert back to your old face in about 1.5 years to 2 years.
Some benefits last much longer. The injection process and adding a product into your tissues will stimulate the creation of new tissue. This enhances your results and some results will remain long after these products have been re-absorbed into your body.
HOW DO I GET THE BEST RESULTS?
Multiple factors are involved in the aging of your appearance. The stress hormones affect the breakdown of tissue. The foods you eat affect healthy cell replication. So we prefer to start with cellular aging when we treat you at Better Medical Centre. This will enable you to enjoy the best results and the longest lasting results.
The Teoysyal™ product line is the most effective solution for restoring volume and reducing the signs of aging by helping you look fresher and more youthful.
When the clear gel of Restylane™ is injected into the skin, the result in increased volume will soften wrinkles and facial folds. This volume can create facial fullness and symmetry, enhance certain facial features and lessen the signs of aging.
When injected just below the skin, hyaluronic acid adds volume, and therefore smooths fine lines, wrinkles and skin folds. You can enhance your natural facial contours and augment your lips, creating a sensual look and improve the firmness of your skin. You can look fresh and natural and avoid looking like your face has been pulled tight.
REDENSITY treatment for eyes.
“At [Better] we do a lot of work with patients who are fitness models, fitness professionals and athletes. These patients, both men and women, carry very low body fat percentages. This leads to severe volume loss and a sunken look to the midface/ cheeks/ eyes. Carefully placed filler replaces volume, and helps the person look more radiant.”
NATURAL LIP TECHNIQUE
In the spring of 2010, Clarion Medical Technologies recruited Dr. Natasha Iyer for the trial and launch of Ultimate, their newest injectable filler. Dr. Iyer demonstrated her ‘natural lips’ technique to doctors who were already experienced in injecting filler.
She used Kiss by Teosyal™ to demonstrate how to give patients what they want : fuller and natural lips that don’t look obvious or overdone.
Kiss is an excellent product designed exclusively for lips. And so convenient that you can get your lips done and return to work immediately.
The Natural Lip Technique is quick, simple and only you will know. Contact us today and ask about how you can save with the Natural Lip Technique.
The fillers we have discussed are not your only options in terms of achieving effective results with the appearance of your skin. While surgery can help tighten the skin, it is highly invasive and very expensive. We therefore recommend that you invest instead in the only medical procedure backed by scientific evidence to tighten, firm and lift your skin. That technique is known as Thermage™.
