The 8-point lift is an integral part of this facial volume filler procedure.

Structural skin changes are amongst the most visible signs of ageing. Skin ageing becomes apparent when the person is in their early 30s. They develop subtle changes, like fine expression lines around the eyes and mouth. Also deepening of the tear trough, giving the face a somewhat tired appearance. Dr Kahlout is very experienced in facial harmony using facial volume fillers. He evaluates key features causing facial ageing. These features lead to deeper and more permanent expression lines. Lines that are visible when the face is relaxed. These lines give rise to crows feet, and frown lines, and smile lines and gunt appearance. Facial aging is also associated with loss of skin firmness and tone leading to sallow, dry, rough skin and more noticeable larger pore.

Jowls Correction Filler

Volume loss in the upper face is associated with drooping of the lower face resulting in lax jawline. Slight relaxation of the jowls can be corrected with jawline facial volume loss replenishment procedure. Correcting jowls and jawline definition can make a person’s facial features look more balanced and youthful. Young people do not have jowls. By attending to volume restoration in the jawline area we improve facial harmony. Jawline sculpting and contouring is up and coming in popularity. Have you ever wondered what the secret is to stunning catwalk bone structure? Jawline contouring can do amazing things for your appearance. Contouring dermal fillers are used for this procedure. These include Radiesse, Juvéderm Voluma and Restylane Lyft.

Exciting new facts have emerged as we further understand the structural changes of the ageing in the face. Previously it was thought that wrinkles, folds and skin sagging develop due to gravity pulling the skin down. We know now is that it is not just stretching and drooping of the skin that accounts for the wrinkles and folds as we get older. The most significant contribution to the aged appearance is loss of volume in the skin, soft tissues, fat and bone that creates the visible signs of ageing. Ageing changes are more like a deflating balloon than a descent due to the action of gravity. Facial volume loss leads to the shifts in shape, balance, and proportions. We can visualise this by looking at the difference between grapes and raisins.

As we age, deeper structural changes take place. Changes that include bone resorption (thinning of the bones), fat atrophy and loss of subcutaneous collagen and elastin. These changes lead to appearance of more profound signs of ageing. Changes beyond lines and wrinkles in the skin and they include:

Sunken cheeks

Development of jowls

Loose, sagging skin of the lower face

Drooping eyebrows

Thinning lips with down-turned

Down-turning mouth corners

Facial volume filler restoration is an innovative way to harmonise the face using fillers. These quality filler include Radiesse, Restylane and Juvéderm. We also use collagen enhancers like Ellansé or indeed the patient’s own fat cells. The 8 point Soft lift is non-invasive, quick, and relatively pain free. Results can last for up to 12 months with hyaluronic acid fillers. Collagen stimulators like Ellansé will last for up to four years. Dr Kahlout is a facial volume restoration expert who has restored facial volume with dermal fillers for hundreds of people ever since developing the treatment back in 2008.

Everyone’s’ volume loss is unique. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin, Dr Kahlout first consults with the patient and advises them on the areas that can enhanced. The area to be treated is then mapped to skilfully restore.
