Lift, fill or tighten, which comes first?

Do you want to look refreshed and get rid of that tired look?


In the last several years we have seen a healthy movement by the profession in favour of holistic tailored treatments and 'less is more' approach. Today the cosmetic culture promotes the reflection of inner beauty and preservation of natural expressions and personality. Cosmetic treatments have become more affordable and mainstream. The treatment selection is tailored to the individual.


We have moved away from fighting against ageing to ageing gracefully. The aim of a perfect treatment is holistic skin wellness, preservation of natural expressions with subtle cosmetic restoration and/or augmentation .


Skin elasticity and tone

Skin health, texture, elasticity and complexion are a reflection of youthfulness and equally as important

as volume and wrinkle reduction by dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections. An ideal treatment plan is a combination of integrated skin wellness treatments to improve skin texture, tone, elasticity and reduce pore size as well as adding volume, shape and 'ironing out' wrinkles. This means a combination of skin wellness treatments to improve elasticity and skin tone i.e dermal skin boosters, cosmeceuticals (i.e.Synergy Skincare and Teoxane), PRP and Broad Band Light (BBL) with dermal fillers to add volume, structure and restore shape. The new cosmetic approach is holistic and about much more then just 'filling to lift'.


Skin sagging and volume loss

In the clinic we are often asked about using dermal fillers to lift the mid face and the lower face skin or jawls. This sounds like an easy solution to loss of skin elasticity and volume in these areas. We can certainly produce some lifting using modern fillers. They are designed to replace volume loss. However, if we rely solely on fillers to 'lift’, one can run the risk of not addressing the skin elasticity loss

and create an over filled unnatural look.


Overfilling can distort your natural expression and be seen as 'work gone too far'. Another way to address the concern of skin elasticity loss and skin sagging is to use a holistic approach to skin

tightening. This may include addressing diet, lifestyle, hormonal and general health, skin care and cosmeceutical routines as well as non-dermal filler modalities for tightening skin to produce a lift. The non-dermal filler options for lifting and tightening skin may include various lasers, Broad Band Light

(BBL), Healight, ultrasound, radiofrequency (RF), thermal modalities, fat implants, liposuction and plastic surgery in some cases.


The non-dermal filler options for lifting and tightening skin may include various lasers, Broad Band Light

(BBL), Healight, ultrasound, radiofrequency (RF), thermal modalities, autologous fat transfer, liposuction and plastic surgery in some cases. For a complete holistic approach to anti-aging protecting against the harmful UV and a healthy balanced diet, hormonal health and lifestyle are essential..
