How to Combat Age-Related Fat Loss with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

by | Nov 30, 2023 | Medical Aesthetics | 0 comments

At Eudai Clinic, we understand that the natural ageing process, while inevitable, can lead to changes in our appearance that many wish to address.

One significant change is the loss of facial fat, which can impact the youthful contours of our face.

In this blog, we will explore what happens to our facial fat as we age and how we use hyaluronic acid fillers to counteract these signs of ageing, restoring a youthful and radiant appearance.

The Journey of Facial Fat through Ageing

Our face, in youth, is characterised by well-distributed facial fat pads that provide volume and support to the overlying skin. These fat pads are arranged in the forehead, temples, cheeks, areas around the eyes and mouth, and the chin. As we age, several changes occur:

Redistribution: The fat pads shift and descend due to gravity and the loosening of connective tissue.

Volume Loss: We experience a reduction in the number of fat cells, and the remaining fat cells shrink in size, leading to volume loss.

Structural Changes: The bony structure of our face also undergoes resorption, which affects the overall support for facial fat.

These changes lead to a less plump appearance, creating a more hollowed look with less pronounced cheekbones, deepening nasolabial folds, a more prominent jowl, and sagging skin.

The Role of Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide in the skin. Its primary function is to retain water to keep tissues well lubricated. HA fillers leverage this property to restore lost volume and stimulate collagen production in the skin.

How HA Fillers Work

HA fillers are injected beneath the skin’s surface to replace lost volume and support the overlying skin. By doing so, they can:

  • Fill in wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Restore volume in cheeks and temples.
  • Define the jawline.
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars.
  • Enhance the shape and volume of lips.

The Art of Personalisation

Every individual ages differently, and at Eudai Clinic, we approach each patient with a personalized plan.

Our expert practitioners consider the unique structure, degree of fat loss, and aesthetic goals before creating a tailored treatment plan.

The Treatment Experience

Undergoing HA filler treatment at Eudai Clinic involves a series of steps to ensure comfort and satisfaction:

  1. Consultation: A detailed discussion about concerns, expectations, and the potential of HA fillers.
  2. Treatment Planning: Personalised treatment planning based on facial assessment.
  3. Injection: Strategic injection of HA fillers to replenish lost volume and enhance facial contours.
  4. Immediate Results: Visible improvement right after the treatment with minimal downtime.

Longevity of HA Fillers

The effects of HA fillers can last from six months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used, the area treated, and individual factors such as metabolism.

To maintain the rejuvenated appearance, we recommend periodic follow-up treatments.

Safety and Side Effects

HA fillers have an excellent safety profile. Most side effects are mild and temporary, such as redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.

Our practitioners are well-versed in techniques to minimise these effects and manage any complications that may arise.
