Face Fillers in Cheshire
Face fillers have been used for over a hundred years. Originally autologous fat was removed from elsewhere in the patient and inserted in to the face. This process has been refined over the years and is still available today. Despite this it is not the most reliable of treatments and results can be disappointing.
Recently collagen extracted from bovine or poultry sources has been used very successfully in refilling facial lines. One disadvantage of collagen is that its animal origin makes allergic reactions to the product more common and so a test patch of treatment has been required to ensure a safe treatment
More recently the Hyaluronic Acids have been developed which require no prior testing. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of the skin. Approximately 87% of the upper layers of your own skin is Hyaluronic Acid. Manufacturers in Sweden have simply trained some bacteria to manufacture Hyaluronic Acid in large volumes which are made into a gel which is then sterilised and safe to inject into the face. Often termed “Polyfilla for the face” these Hyaluronic Acids are extremely safe. Not all hyaluronics readily available today are made from bacterial sources, however the best ones are. The most popular by far is the Restylane range.
Restylane is fundamentally a Non Animal Stabilised Hyaluronic Acid or NASHA. It comes in several forms and it is most important to choose the right form for the right problem. Your doctor is best placed to advise you about which form is most appropriate for you and many people require several different types dependent on the lines they present with.
One interesting development over time is that when we started face fillers we primarily filled the perceived lines on the face such as nasolabial folds and oral commissures. Now that we understand the ageing process in the face and how it affects volume and shape we are more able to gently rejuvenate the appearance in an overall manner.
One of the major components of the ageing face is mid facial volume loss as evidenced in the picture below.
This volume needs to be carefully replaced to produce a soft natural enhancement. Best done with Face Fillers. Some degree of skin tightening might be helpful too.
The photo below is not the same patient but represents the kinds of natural looking results which can be achieved.
These products are most frequently used to reduce lines in the lower parts of the face especially Nasolabial Folds and Oral Commissures. They are also frequently used for Lip Enhancements and to build up cheek bones.
So we need to be careful and choose your face fillers specialist wisely. I would recommend a doctor from the British College of Aesthetic Medicine as a minimum. With experience you can get a lot of subtle but very good improvements.
