Despite ageing being a natural process, many choose to prolong the visibility of the purpose with various procedures. One, in particular, is the facial filler.
Are you considering fillers? Over time, our face loses tissue volume and structure, leading to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Frown lines, smile lines, laughter lines – whatever you want to call them, whatever is causing them, wherever they’re setting up shop, there is the desire among some to lift, smooth and plump the skin.
Beauty Decoded Live, in partnership with Allergan, a educative and innovative developer of medical aesthetic treatments is exactly what you need. Instigated by renowned plastic surgeon and creator of the MD Codes®, Dr Mauricio de Maio, Beauty Decoded Live is your myth-busting solution to all questions you have regarding cosmetic procedures. From fillers to face lifts, it’s all about understanding your skin and the science behind it.
In recent years, fillers and cosmetic procedures have become more socially acceptable, it seems. Dr. Jonquille Chantrey, plastic surgery expert, believes it is the effect of social media and influencers’ presence on these platforms. “More than ever ‘practitioners’ can self market and also the millennial market are more open to discussing treatment unlike the older generations who tend to be more private.
This has made fillers more in demand and consequently more available as many people are trying to get trained and open up a service virtually overnight.”
Are you keen to try the latest trends in beauty innovation? It is for this reason that Beauty Decoded Live came about, aiming to “to shine a light on good practice in a rapidly expanding sector of the beauty industry and empower those who are contemplating treatment to book a proper consultation, secure in the knowledge that they know what to do, what to ask, and what to expect”, states Dr. Chantrey.
A pioneering brand in the world of facial fillers, there are fiver types that make up the Juvéderm collection: volite, which hydrates the skin and improves its elasticity; volbella, responsible for adding a subtle amount of volume to the lips and softening the appearance of fine lines; volift, which improves facial contouring and adds volume to thinning lips and, finally, voluma, need to add volume to hollowing parts of the face.
Juvéderm is proven to smooth out lines and wrinkles, create or replace volume, plump, lift, project and contour the skin, giving it a full revitalising makeover.
80% of women care about their facial wellbeing, with 63% of them considering it worthwhile to spend their money to improve its appearance.
Most people want to invest in a medical aesthetic treatment due to a lack of confidence so Beauty Decoded Live aims to build consumer confidence in this area. At the very least, the initiative wants to build consumer knowledge in the subject.
Appropriate consultation is imperative, in this situation. According to Dr. Chantrey, understanding a patient’s general health, hormones and diet can reveal the factors that are potentially causing their ageing and adjusting conditions to see if this can be prevented. “It is not just a case of them telling me what they want and me explaining what they need.”
Responsible for drawing moisture and nourishment to the skin, hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and ensures skin maintains its shape and elasticity. The production of this substance slows as we age, which is why skin loses plumpness.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected into the skin to restore elasticity to the skin and improve its tone, lifting and smoothing lines and filling any crevices. They remain the most popular type of filler for reducing the signs of ageing.
