The soft tissue structures of the face are attached to the bone in five places by anchoring structures known as true ligaments. Through ageing these ligaments become lax and we get a descent of the fat pads in the face which results in drooping eyelids, nasolabial folds and jowls.
By injecting filler directly into these ligaments, we are able to restore strength to these supporting structures and create a subtle lift in five areas of the face. These are:
- The brow
- The cheek and nasolabial area
- The upper lip
- The pre-jowl area
This treatment is often combined with regular filler procedures to restore lost volume to produce a natural and beautiful outcome.
