Volume loss is one of the biggest giveaways of ageing – the old adage that you have to choose between your figure and your face after forty is sadly truer than you might like to think. But there are a number of treatments to add volume, particularly in the mid-face.
Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers; most of the big dermal filler ranges contain a volumising product, containing larger molecules of the same substance, which are injected deeper into the dermis
Radiesse; this is a biocompatible volumising filler that stimulates the growth of your own natural collagen over time, but with an immediate volumising result.
Sculptra; this is the other big name in the volumising market. Sculptra is a ‘tissue simulator’, made from poly-L-lactic acid, which is injected deeper into the dermis to stimulate collagen production, and the effects of which can last for up to 25 months.
