Ageing Gracefully is a Beautiful Thing

Facial Aesthetics

Ageing gracefully is a beautiful thing, however some changes which occur we wish would slow down. At Berkshire Aesthetics our approach is to alleviate some of the physical signs which  look older than you feel. 

Fifty is seen as the new thirty, sixty the new forty, our lifestyles are much more active, social and varied than our parents at the same age. Modern society and lifestyles often lead us to challenged when how we feel on the inside does not reconcile with how we look on the outside.

how does our appearance changes as we age

fundamentals of the ageing face

Facial ageing a complex process with many structural changes going on behind the scenes. When we are young the fat in our faces is evenly distributed and which plump up the forehead, temples, cheeks, and areas around the eyes and mouth.

With age the face loses volume as fat decreases and clumps up, and shifts downward. Facial features that were formerly round may sink, and skin that was smooth and tight gets loose and sags. Meanwhile other parts of the face gain fat, particularly the lower half, so we tend to sag around the chin and jowls appear in the neck.

And, of course, there are the wrinkles. The deep ones in the forehead and between the eyebrows are called expression, or animation, lines. They’re the result of facial muscles continually tugging on, and eventually creasing, the skin. Other folds may get deeper because of the way fat decreases and moves around. Finer wrinkles are due to sun damage, smoking, and natural degeneration of elements of the skin that keep it thick and supple.

Our lifestyles are very different to a generation ago

treatments for facial ageing

Our treatment options are comprehensive

Many clinics provide only injectables, but with advancing technology the choices for patients is changing rapidly.  We therefore believe that to truly support our patients we must offer as wide and complete choice of treatments as possible. 

Our promise to our patients is that we will invest in ensuring we offer the most comprehensive choice of the leading and most effective treatments possible. 

Anti-wrinkle injections are the most popular and well known aesthetic treatment. More often referred to by certain brand names, anti-wrinkle injections temporarily reduce or eliminate facial fine lines and wrinkles.
