Majority of our first time clients that come for injectables say ‘I don’t want to look plastic and lose the expression in my face’. First of all, this stigma is created by the media and celebrities that have either been ‘over treated’ or had plastic surgery to minimise expression.
At Ageless we are passionate about creating a natural look with a treatment plan with education about our treatments and their effects.
As we age the Elastin, Collagen and Hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases causing sagging of the skin resulting in wrinkles. When the skin loses it’s ability to bounce back through ageing, wrinkles (static lines) become deeper over time. Static lines are formed from the contraction of muscles over time as well as decreases in natural substances which create lines such as crow’s feet (smiling) and frown lines. Unfortunately this is unavoidable unless your good at an expressionless face from your 20’s onwards.
Anti-aging injectables such as Dysport® is the go to treatment for reducing wrinkles and dermal fillers like Restalyn ® and combination SoftLift are great for softening creases and volume loss. One of the most common statements to those who begin treatment in their early 20’s are ‘You’re too young you don’t need anti-wrinkle treatment’. In fact beginning treatment before static lines are formed is the best preventative of unwanted lines using therapeutic dosages of the anti-wrinkle treatment of choice.
At AgeLess in Keswick we have a ‘go slow methodical’ approach’, especially for first timers as individual facial muscle strength and metabolism of medications differentiate from client to client. As anti-wrinkle treatments are a medication we are very cautious not to ‘over treat’ clients and to still allow for natural expression of the face as well as smoothing out unwanted lines.
