The aging process affects everyone. Most people develop unwanted lines; others have dark circles under the eyes, nasolabial folds or jowls. Much of this can be attributed to facial volume loss. Facial bones and fat pads, which provide structural support to the overlying skin, shrink as we age. Skin becomes loose as a result of this shrinkage.
Cosmetic treatments have come a long way from when a surgical face lift was your only treatment option available. However surgical facelifts alone can only address some of these changes. At Facial Artistry Cosmetic Skin and Vein Clinic in Canberra they understand that people prefer treatment options with no or minimal downtime, which is why Dr Bernard Leung performs ’Total Face’ dermal filler treatments, also known previously as facial revolumisation or ’Liquid Face Lift’. ‘Total Face’ dermal filler treatments, in Dr Leung’s experience can you give you a better, more natural-looking and long lasting result without pain or downtime.
Dr Leung’s approach is always to address the underlying reasons for the aged appearance. The aim is not to create a new you, but to revolumise and reposition your facial anatomy back to where it once was. This will result in a more youthful appearance, while still looking completely natural. The rationale of ’Total Face’ treatment is discussed in their 5R Principles of Facial Rejuvenation process. Your ’Total Face’ treatment will usually include dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections. One of the most important aspects of this treatment is a thorough understanding of facial anatomy.
