Who doesn’t enjoy the confidence that comes with looking refreshed and rejuvenated? That feeling when we’re told, “wow you look well – have you just been on holiday”? Sure beats, “you look tired”!

Non-surgical treatments, such as anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers, are frequently sought by men and women to address the common signs of aging on our faces; lines, wrinkles and loss of tissue volume.

Given our faces tell our stories, effective Facial Rejuvenation should strive to enhance our natural features and refresh our appearance, not mask our character or facial expression.

Wrinkles can be caused by repeated muscle contraction and movement over time. For example, the “worry lines” that typically appear on our foreheads, frown lines between the brows and crows feet around the eyes.

Anti-wrinkle injections inhibit the nerve impulses that cause a muscle to contract. This results in lines and wrinkles becoming smoother and diminished, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Loss of tissue volume on our faces over time can also result in the formation of deeper lines, such as smile creases (from the base of the nose to the corners of the mouth) and marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth down to the chin). Our lips also show loss of volume and lengthening/thinning as we age.

Dermal Fillers work by filling, restoring and adding volume to areas of the face, lifting and smoothing deep lines and wrinkles. In addition to addressing lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are used to restore volume and shape to lips or in the cheek area to restore shape and definition.

In the hands of someone without a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy, musculature, vascular and nerve supply, injectable treatments with anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers come with inherent risks. The procedures shouldn’t be treated flippantly and without respect for the significant risks (such as blindness, paralysis or bleeding) that are associated with them.

Then there are the risks of someone who doesn’t understand how to achieve natural results! Most of us are seeking to enhance our appearance with natural results, not have lips that look like sausages or “duck’s beak”, or such a frozen face where we can’t look either happy or cranky!

Dr Bobby Kumar understands the balance between looking rejuvenated and refreshed, but still looking natural and feeling like yourself.
