One option for facial volume restoration is readily available dermal filler materials like hyaluronic acid. HA is manufactured by many companies. In Ireland the most popular are Restylane, Juvéderm and Perfectha. Another option for facial volumisation is injecting a collagen enhancing polymer filler like Radiesse, Ellanse or Sculptra. A process known as neocollagenesis starts as a result of the controlled inflammatory material injected. The filler induce reactive collagen synthesis which helps us to create a gradual tissue volume addition over time. Either type of fillers, HA and neocollagenesis simulators could be used in the process of Softlift available at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic and injected without any pain and minimal bruising. While these procedures are safe, it takes experienced hands, eyes and aesthetic judgement to achieve the best outcomes. Results can be expected to last up to a year with HA’s and up to two years with the latter neocollagenesis promoting fillers.
