A FILTER-FREE COMPLEXION A NEW REALITY

Photo filters are now a given, with everyone on social media having luminous, dewy, smooth skin. But take away the filter and reality sets in. As we age, our skin loses moisture and elasticity, appearing dehydrated and less radiant. Many women attempt to reverse skin ageing with a rigorous skin care regime. However, HA dermal fillers can also play a role.

SKIN QUALITY IS A PRIORITY

Not surprisingly, according to recent international research, skin is a big priority for most women when defining outer beauty. Good skin quality such as smooth, flawless, glowing and hydrated skin is equated to good health and youthfulness, giving a boost to one's confidence. This is why women give a lot of attention to their skin in their daily skincare and make-up routine.

HYDRATION FOCUSED FILLERS

Moisturizers, serums and masks act as barriers to prevent moisture loss from our skin. They typically remain on the surface of our skin and do not penetrate the dermis layer. This means that our skin remains only temporarily and superficially hydrated.
Dermal fillers contain a substance known as hyaluronic acid or HA that replicates the actions of a naturally occurring sugar molecules to enhance skin quality. Unlike fillers designed for structure, contouring and facial shape, skin quality fillers work to treat the overall dermis– the layer of tissue just underneath the top layer of skin known as the epidermis - by improving skin quality attributes such as hydration and elasticity. They can also be used to fill and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

DIAL UP THE LUMINOSITY

Treatment with skin quality fillers involves a series of superficial injections into the dermis of the face. The neck and décolletage can also be treated. Skin quality dermal fillers use distinctive types of technologies which can determine the length of hydration they provide. There are different fillers for skin quality available, most require multiple sessions to attain its effect while one brand requires just one session to achieve the desired results.
