As we age, sun damage and pollutants such as smoking damage collagen, the building block of youthful looking skin.

Loss of collagen is the key factor in the visible signs of ageing as the skin loses its ability to hold its shape as the scaffolding of collagen fibres weakens to the extent that it cannot resist the effects of gravity. Typically, from the age of thirty, the nasolabial folds become more prominent as the cheek fat pad drops down and contributes to the nasolabial fold. If no preventative action is taken, as the forties are reached, the nasolabial fold deepens and becomes an ingrained wrinkle, a sculptured jawline becomes a jowl line and a double chin starts to manifest.

Previously there was no alternative to surgical facelifts for improving nasolabial folds. Unfortunately, traditional facelift surgery does not help the mid-face too dramatically and does nothing for the integrity of the skin. Now, with the advent of skin soft tissue fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Esthelis, Teosyal or Evolence, nasolabial folds can be addressed as early as the late twenties when the skin has a much greater ability to rejuvenate.

At Skin Renewal, Skin Tightening devices such as Titan and TriPollar are utilised for deep dermal heating to shrink the collagen fibres and stimulate long term collagen production. Multiple clinical studies have shown that id done around the naso labial area, an elevation occurs in the range of 1 to 3mms. This may sound like a modest amount, but in the face this can be a make a real observable difference to naso labial folds. (See Titan skin tightening before and after photos)

With the above treatments, the prospects of more defined cheek bones and a sleeker jaw line are all now possible but this usually comes at a price. At Skin Renewal we have recognized this problem and have come up with a solution to make it more affordable for the average person. As best results are seen with between 2 to 5 fillers every client is provided with a fully customised year long solution dependant on budget and expectations. The fillers have prolonged effects and can be administered one by one over a period of time until the desired result is achieved.

Skin Renewal Tip

When the lower parts of the face start dropping and naso labial folds become prominent, gravity is defied by lifting and replacing the lost volume with injections of dermal fillers and volumisers in the upper parts of the face. Restoring volume to these areas has a twofold benefit. It provides a fuller more youthful appearance to the cheeks, and it has a lifting, pulling effect that counteracts the appearance of nasolabial folds in the mid regions

Frequently Asked Questions

For sagging skin on side of the mouth, the prescribing Doctor might consider a combination of Botox and filler to give you quick results, but in order to work on the problem long term they may also advise a series of treatments to work on the skin tissue itself in order to strengthen and tighten the sagging area. It is good to consider treatments such as Radiofrequency, ND:Yag Skin Tightening, Titan and Carboxytherapy for sagging conditions like this.

I recently consulted with a Skin Renewal doctor regarding my ageing skin. After examining me and analyzing my requirements, she explained her recommendations in layman terms, with sensitivity to any concerns I had. The treatment itself was a breeze. She inspires confidence, creating a relaxed environment, which makes the experience enjoyable. The doc is a very special doctor and I am delighted with the results and my treatment.
