When we are young, our faces are quite V-shaped, with a fine, defined jaw line and smooth contours, and our cheeks and upper face are full of volume. As we get older, this V begins to invert. Our muscles, fat and even bone is re-distributed, so that the mid-face loses volume, while the lower face gains volume. This volume results in hollowed areas near the eyes and cheeks. Lines between the nose, mouth and chin will also become deeper and more pronounced.
Traditionally, dermal fillers focused solely on filling the deep lines around the mouth, without addressing any loss of volume. The Skin Resus medical team take a more modern approach to fillers, restoring lost volume as well as treating obvious lines. This ‘cheek enhancement treatment’ helps to restore a more youthful shape, and leaves the face looking pretty and fresh.
