5 Reasons To Start Fillers in Your 40s

You may find yourself starting to lose more facial volume in your late 30s and 40s, making you look gaunt and ancient. Even if you're way over 40, you can still rewind time and undo signs of skin deterioration. It's just the same as getting your body back into shape. You may not have exercised for years, but it doesn't mean that you can't take up kickboxing now and still see yourself tone up in a few months' time.

What's happening to your skin in your 40s?

"When you are in your 40s, your estrogen levels begin to tumble drastically," says Dr Kenneth Lee, founder of SW1 Clinic. "This affects skin-tightening collagen and elastin, as well as skin-plumping hyaluronic acid. Slower cell turnover rate and inflammation recovery rate are nothing surprising." Dryer, thinner skin, age spots, and more prominent hints of expression lines on your forehead and around the eyes are what you can't escape from.

Fillers in Your 40s

FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are popular non-surgical aesthetic procedures to help reverse the damages caused by ageing and also as an immediate but temporary quick-fix. "HA fillers are made of hyaluronic acid to resemble those found in our body," says Dr Lee. "These fillers replace lost volume and smoothen your imperfect complexion. The downtime is minimal and the effects can last from 6 months to 2 years depending on the type of fillers."

 Smooth lip creases and plump thin lips

You might not notice this but your pouty lips start to thin and lose their natural full volume as you age. This unfortunate phenomenon is simply due to a localised depletion of collagen(again!!). Collagen is vital because it gives the lips its structure, shape, and suppleness. Just like how we lose volume on our face and prominent expression lines start to form on the skin, our lips respond to collagen depletion by appearing thinner with more tiny creases.

Lip augmentation procedures such as lip volume fillers provide the footing to restore or enhance natural contours and volume, while revitalift lips smooth away lines, hydrate and add a luscious sheen to shriveled lips. Kissable smooth and pouty lips are yours to keep even if you are no longer in your 20s or 30s.

 Even out indented scars

After getting back your volume and smoothness of your face and lips, don't neglect and overlook your rough complexion! Indented scars may form over the years for a variety of reasons, acne, trauma or even chicken pox. The use of temporary fillers injected underneath the depressed scars allow the scars to sit more evenly resulting in a more natural appearance. Even though the results are instant and dramatic, it is however only temporary.
