Volume Aesthetic Treatments

There are many things to consider when looking at treating facial wrinkles. We have put together the following frequently asked questions to help you in your decision process.

What should be considered when looking at a volume treatment?

When considering treatment, the first thing our team will look at is whether your wrinkles are static or dynamic. Dynamic wrinkles are those that are only there when you smile or form an expression while static wrinkles are present at all times.

Tear Troughs and Eye Bag Treatments 

Tear trough grooves create a hollow at the junction between the lower eyelid and the cheek. In many cases, tear troughs are genetic rather than a result of ageing, and often arise in the early to mid-twenties.
The transition from the eyes to the cheeks becomes interrupted by the presence of eye bags and tear troughs, and this can be ageing or be associated with looking tired. We can help to smooth the transition between the lower eyelid and the cheeks and make the appearance of tear troughs or eye bags less obvious.

How do I know what treatment is best for me?

In order to further evaluate the best treatment for you, we will also consider:

  • What caused the line/issue?
  • How can we impact the cause of the line/ issue?
  • Was it volume loss, elasticity losses, weight loss/gain, inherited qualities?
  • What can be reversed or reduced?
  • Where should we begin?
  • What products should be used and where?

At epiclinic® we always consider if an alternate treatment (even one not offered at epiclinic®) may be better for you.

At epiclinic® we have an analogy to explain how static lines work

Consider a car tyre, when you get a flat tyre you see the evidence at the bottom of the tyre but you know that it’s due to a lack of pressure in the whole tyre. If you re-inflate the tyre the problem is solved and you don’t have the sag at the bottom.

The same applies to your face. When you lose volume in the mid-face, around the eyes and cheeks for example, the effects show further down on your face. Lines and wrinkles form from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial lines), down-turning lines appear at the corner of the mouth (oral commissures) and jowls develop.

Look closely at the curve of the cheek from a side or three-quarter view (the OG-curve), if you can see the nasolabial lines, oral commissures and jowls I bet you will also see that the OG curve has flattened out. If we re-inflate here, the lines and jowls diminish considerably. It’s like having a face-lift without horrible plastic surgery.

Who will perform this treatment?
