FACIAL VOLUME

Find out more about

FACIAL VOLUME RESTORATION

As normal facial aging continues, there is a tendency towards deflation
of facial volume, particularly in the mid-face and chin area. This process is
the result of a decrease in the quantity and a change in the distribution of facial
bone and fat. Weakening of supportive structures in combination with the forces of
gravity further create a loss of facial contour and ‘shading’. Additional formation of skin wrinkles can give the face an exhausted and elderly appearance.

The following conditions can be addressed by different facial volume restoration approaches that we offer:

  • Static wrinkles: These wrinkles are visible at all times and do not change with facial movements.
  • Dynamic wrinkles: These are expression lines that appear as folds when the skin is not moving, but deepen with facial movements or expressions.
  • Facial skin folds: These large folds are formed by the loss of facial volume combined with gravitational pull.
  • Sharp transition zones of the face: Weakening of supportive structures (collagen and elastin fibers) as well as fat and bone resorption result in the formation of sharp transition zones (around the eyes and in the midface area, etc.) which creates an elderly appearance
  • Loss of facial contours: During the aging process your facial contours change and begin to loss definition, especially in the temporal, cheekbone, chin, and jaw area.

Several procedures, which can be used as a single treatment or combined, can help restore facial volume to make the face look fresh and youthful again.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid are completely absorbable fillers which can temporarily help diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. 

Benefits

  • Quick office procedure with imitated natural-looking result
  • Very helpful to those with early signs of aging
  • Can postpone facial rejuvenation surgery
  • Combined as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery

  • Bags under eyes


Not good candidates are patients with:

  • Extremely loose or sagging skin. Surgery is a better course of treatment in these cases.

Botulinum Toxin

The injection of botulinum toxin can temporarily reduce or eliminate fine lines and facial wrinkles by blocking nerve signals to particular facial muscles. 

Benefits

  • Cost-effective way to quickly improve facial appearance

  • Smooth crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines
  • Neck bands
  • Dimpling of the skin of the chin

Fat Grafting with PRP

The technique of facial fat grafting utilises your own fat tissue from any donor site to restore facial volume.

In order to achieve a controlled and long lasting result, we use a technique where we mix the fat with specifically processed PRP (platelet-rich plasma) from patient’s own blood. It is sometimes referred to as non-surgical
face-lifting.

Benefits

  • Minimally invasive office procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic
  • Use of your own body tissue results with long lasting result
  • Imitated visible natural-looking result
  • Combined as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery
