Can Wrinkle Fillers Restore Your Self Confidence?
A sad fact of life is that all of us get wrinkles. We may begin to notice fine lines around our eyes and mouth in our forties but by the time we reach our fifties they can be very noticeable and be making a great difference to our normal expression.
As we age, lines appear on our face for many reasons; our skin can become dry as our hormone levels change; it can become damaged through exposure to the chemicals in the air; we may inherit a tendency for dry skin that is prone to wrinkles; we can make lines in our skin through our habitual expressions or we may suddenly form lines as a result of a prolonged illness. But there is a way to slow down these natural processes without surgery and without great expense.
At Medi+Care we carry a range of dermal fillers to choose from in order to replace the lost volume of tissue under the skin and, as this lost volume is the cause of wrinkles, the effect is like magic; you can lose years from your face with one treatment.

With these injectable wrinkle fillers we can give you the look you are aiming for at a much lower cost and with much less time and inconvenience than going the route of a surgical facelift. Usually the treatment takes less than an hour but the effects are immediate and can last for months or years depending on which filler is chosen.
Medi+Care uses safe and effective wrinkle fillers such as: Restylane®, Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra®. Dermal fillers are made from a protein called Hyaluronic Acid, which is a naturally occurring protein found in everyone’s skin. Wrinkle fillers just replace the depth of skin which has thinned naturally with age.
These wrinkle fillers, that are also inserted by injection, work in a slightly different way to Botox injections. Botox removes wrinkles and creases by relaxing the muscles that pull the skin into a crease, such as a frown. Wrinkle fillers on the other hand replace the missing underlying tissue and push the skin back into its former position, hence making the wrinkle disappear.
Also known as dermal fillers, they work well with other treatments such as Botox, for lines that have been there for a while; the Botox relaxes the muscles that cause the line to be there in the first place and the wrinkle fillers lift the skin to give your face the smooth look we all prefer.
