It's a great time of year to restore and repair the effects environment and ageing have on our facial skin, says Rejuvenation Cosmetic Medicine's Sharon Melrose.
Our summer complexion has faded into a dull pallor and many of us are feeling 'out of shape' and in need of a little mid-winter 'pick-me-up'.
A small change such as turning up the corners of a sad-looking, down-turned mouth or smoothing a furrowed, tired-looking frown can do wonders for your appearance and confidence.
“The relatively low-cost, safeness and convenience of treatments such as dermal fillers and facial muscle relaxants has resulted in an ever-increasing number of happy clients who look and feel more refreshed and confident,” says Sharon.
“My clients are most often between 35-65 years old, who are reluctant to accept not so much the inevitability, but the speed with which their face changes with age.”
More often than not, winter seems to be a time when we notice these changes and look to possible solutions.
Shrinking facial fat pads, thinning of facial skin, muscle and bone wastage are responsible for changes in our appearance that rob us of our familiar, unique identity and categorise us as looking typically ‘old'.
Sharon says many people want to present themselves in their best ‘light' as long as is reasonably possible, but without resorting to procedures that involve time-consuming recovery periods, prohibitive costs or procedures deemed too invasive.
“As little as 1ml of dermal filler can restore a beautifully defined lip edge or minimise smokers' lines.”
Most dermal fillers are made from products that mimic our own stores of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid which increase hydration of skin leading to increased supplies of naturally-occurring collagen and elastin.
Prospective clients can book in for a complimentary, confidential consultation with Sharon to discuss how these safe and affordable treatments may benefit them.
