As we age, facial wrinkles can form pronounced “ridge-like” lines upon the skin. As the skin ages and it is exposed to oxidants, pollution and ultraviolet rays, the cells have a reduced ability to produce hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is normally found in the body’s connective tissue and is produced by the cells to make the skin elastic and to lubricate joints. However, as the body ages, the cells production of it decreases leading to loss of volume of the skin, wrinkle formation, fold formation and the characteristic signs of ageing.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers are an injectable treatment that can lift and plump the skin. Once administered the Dermal Fillers provide support and structure where the skin has slackened over time, helping the volume return and giving the face a more youthful appearance. At Brookside Aesthetics, we use the following leading brands, Restylane, Juvederm and Teosyal, which all provide excellent results.
