We all know as we grow older our bodies change, from shrinking in height to our voice changing. Our face is the first thing we notice changing as we age, so the clinicians here at SkinViva Manchester have some interesting face facts you probably didn’t know!
These face facts may sound daunting but the effects of ageing can be countered with surgical and non-surgical treatments. If you’re tired of seeing the same old wrinkles or just want to look youthful there are many treatments which could help you!
Botox (short for Botulinum toxin) is a non-surgical treatment which briefly relaxes muscle movement for 3-4 months, which will help in the reduction of wrinkles.
Fillers aim to replace the fat pads we lose as we age, giving the appearance of soft smooth skin by lifting areas & filling out lost volume.
Dermal Fillers are also a common way of improving areas by adding volume (such as the lips) for a plumper appearance and last much longer than Botox (up to 24 months in some cases).
Botox and Fillers can be used to treat the similar problems that come with ageing and some of the face facts mentioned. However, there is also the option of surgical treatments – it all depends on the individuals preferences & preferred treatment.
