Ageing happens. It easy to presume that reducing the signs of ageing is a guessing game, one that takes only time and money. In actual fact it’s an art, particularly in the aesthetic world. Most injectors work with the triangle of youth and if you haven’t heard of it by now, here is your chance to understand the guideline that most refer to when restoring and creating the perfect face.
The triangle of youth refers to the condition of the face in its prime; when we are young and collagen production is most prominent, our cheekbones are high and our jawline is well defined, cheeks have the highest possible volume. Collagen production is consistent and frequent meaning our skin is at its smoothest and hydrated too. The triangle begins at the highest part of the cheekbones and the point sits at the chin. As we age this triangle becomes inverted and it is then referred to as the pyramid of age.
During this process, notice how the face becomes more oblong, cheeks flatten and jowls appear. Fat gathers around the lower part of the face shaping a ‘double chin,’ eyes appear hollower and the diminished fat pad by the cheekbones leads to a more sunken and dull appearance.
The main purpose of using dermal fillers in anti-ageing treatment is to restore this loss of scaffolding to the face. Working with the triangle of youth, the ratio is rebuilt and with the right technique can look subtle and quite natural. Our doctor and nurse have recently trained in the phenomenal V lift treatment that uses an expert technique to target specific points of the lower face to restore this triangle that is lost during ageing. Results can last up to 12 months and the treatment can be modified depending on the client’s budget. Ask in clinic today for more details and to see if the V lift is the right treatment for you.
