Age and sun exposure are the two main factors in the appearance of lines and wrinkles, pigmentary changes and change in facial shape and appearance. Wrinkles emerge with ageing and may be exacerbated by loss of facial fat and over-active facial muscles. Filler injections and muscle relaxing injections may be used alone or together to relax smile or frown lines and fill in the residual wrinkles. Lines around the mouth are regularly reason by loss of lip volume due to ageing, and modest replacement with natural tissue gels can restore lost volume and fill out wrinkles.

Bulk filling

Bulk filling refers to the replacement of facial fat loss within the dealing of deep shadow areas. Initially fat transfer was used, however this is a complex procedure and many of the patients who need it do not have the abdominal or hip fullness necessary to provide adequate amounts. The other problem with fat transfer is its unpredictable duration of effect.

Natural tissue gels are the most practical solution in a procedure that we call “mega filling”. This is usually repeated on an annual basis. Laser Dermatology makes use of multiple different natural tissue gels based on individual requirements.

Signs

Some subliminal signs of ageing which respond well to bulk-filling are:

Naso-labial creases. The naso-labial fold runs from the outer corner of the mouth to the nose. This is usually the first sign of facial ageing.

Under-eye shadow (“Tear Trough”) and vertical mid cheek shadowing (nasojugal). Due to loss of facial fat usually caused by ageing but sometimes seen in lean, fit younger people.

Backs of hands – loss of fat can be filled with natural tissue gels*. “Age spots” can be removed with Q-switched YAG laser.
