At Filler World there’s more to us than just being the number one, one-stop, trusted and reliable dermal filler source in the UK. We sell many other products that are specifically designed for our older audience that is entering or has already reached the menopausal stage of their life. Observing changes in our body, is something we get extremely good at as we age. Like many, we are all aware of changes that will happen to us one day and expecting these changes is a great proactive way of being ready and well researched into the types of products we can take advantage of, when we do reach that stage. Often even though the changes are gradual, we suddenly notice them one day, like they’ve just crept up upon us without any notice. One day, we could be staring at our reflection in the mirror and notice two frown line creases between our brows, not just one. Instantly, Botox comes to mind. At Filler World, we’ve thought about the not-so-talked about problems and put together a product list that may require your attention or your patients’ attention some-day.
It’s no surprise that millennials are driving the UK market in aesthetic procedures. In a study of 1030 adults aged 18 and over, 84% said they have had cosmetic treatment or considering it within the next year. Whereas only 28% of adults over the age of 35 would consider it. When we look at the number of young qualified nurses diverting their careers towards the exciting sector of aesthetics rather than being on ward-watch all day, what is it that draws them into the cosmetic field? Voluminous lips are on trend currently (well haven’t they always been)? An increasing number of young women are recommending the procedure to their fellow mums and Instagram is certainly spreading the word. If you like one aesthetic account, the chances are you will get their competitor come running after you with a Follow, in the hope you will Follow them back too! Well, isn’t it like that in every industry? Yes it is. (You like a kitchen company’s account on Instagram and the same thing will surely happen.) Going back to the topic we’re focusing on, with lots of young women focusing on their vermillion borders and philtrim columns, word is getting round. Images of their before and after are being circulated on WhatsApp groups and no-one wants to be left behind. Everyone wants to look beautiful. There is no going back. Women with lip fillers will want to keep them forever. There are aesthetic practices sprouting up on high streets north, west and south, and the procedure is as normal as having a dental check-up. A lot has changed in the last 5 years. Young nurse practitioners have caught onto the demand of aesthetic procedures and are there to fulfill it, whilst our role at Filler World’s is to fulfill their stock demands. It’s a team effort to supply the nation with fillers.
When it comes to contouring and augmenting, practitioners have shared their preferred filler choices for younger patients. Instagram has taken over how women want themselves to appear to the world. Contouring using makeup has taken the world by surprise, how different shades of makeup can create an illusional sharper or smaller nose, and tighter jawlines. Whilst many continue to opt for contouring makeup techniques, others will use dermal fillers to accentuate their look through the introduction of volume. The remarkable thing about fillers is, although they are introducing volume in specific places, features can magically appear somewhat smaller. Define, sculpt and structure Increased lip volume, stronger jawlines and cheek volume are three of the most popular treatments that young patients seek, as opposed to the older population who want to iron out wrinkles/folds and increase volume in temples, chin and cheeks. Younger patients will be more focussed on the top superficial layers of their skin, as opposed to deeper tissue which older patients will want to fill. Practioners will advise that one size will not fit all. The essential factors for selecting which product are the patient’s skin type, texture, facial properties, gender, and skin thickness. A good practitioner will assess the patient in an initial consultation first, to make a judgement of which filler would be the most ideal to create the desire outcome. Achieving natural results should be high priority for both patient and practitioner. Younger patients benefit from softer fillers that create natural contours that allow the face to move freely with each facial expression. Young or old, both possess unique facial attributes and requirements. Analysing the biomechanics of each individuals characteristics should be a good starting point when choosing the right filler. Understanding patient’s requirements too is vital. Whilst some want more longer lasting fillers, others will want to test out their new look for a few months only. Practitioners must widen their knowledge of what dermal fillers are available and what they can do for each patient. Limiting their knowledge to only a few fillers may not allow them to achieve the best for their patients, both young and old.
We all crave that fresh healthy glow, but whilst some are born with it, others have to work a little harder at achieving it. Botox is one of those life’s little secrets which can help many of us achieve that healthy glow we all long for. Skin can present many problems for some of us and none of us. Whether it’s breakouts, pigmentation spots, sagging and wrinkles. Having the right toolbox to combat each one of these comes with research and having the knowledge of where to go. Filler Experts is the one-stop store for many women and men, worldwide, who need that quick solution to address their skin. Botox? The secret to many people’s good looks is in fact Botox. Dermatologist offices all around the world use Botox more than any other product. Patients walking out of a Dermatology practice look fresher, glowier and less tired. Not a frozen look, but just one that reduces the appearance of unwanted lines. If your practitioner has an incredible imagination and artist’s eye, then even the most nervous first-time patient will be impressed with what results can be achieved. Research on choosing the best is vital. Let’s face it, some people just have that personal magnetic warmth that makes us feel at ease. An experienced practitioner will have a toolbox of knowledge that expands with time. Getting inside their beauty closet will be well sought after! So whilst we know that Botox is one of the most sought after treatments globally. We must not forget one of the basics of all time.... Sunscreen! By applying this religiously, we can already diminish the effects of the sun for years to come. 90% of ageing comes directly from sun rays. At Filler Experts, you will find a wide range of sun protection products. What else is popular on the globe right now? Laser Resurfacing is also becoming a popular treatment choice for many. It makes skin look healthy whilst stimulating the inner immune system of the skin. Healing and improving skin texture, lines and pores is essential. Avoid Hot Showers Don’t let your skin dry out with a hot shower, or bath, even if its too tempting too take either. Always moisturise skin after you get out, especially whilst skin is damp, as this will trap moisture inside the skin. Chemical Exfoliators - yes or no? Remember it’s all about how much pressure you apply. More sensitive skin needs to be cautious. Chemical exfoliators are brilliant at turning over the deeper layers of the skin to make your skin texture brighter and pores cleaner. Exercise! A good workout can push out all the bad toxins from the pores, but Anti-oxidants Use these internally and topically on a daily basis to minimise the chances of free radical damage to your DNA, especially after significant sun exposure and if you are now in your forties
Ever wondered what the best time of the year is to have your filler treatment (say if it is an annual or one-off in a lifetime treatment). Is there a better time of the year than any other? Many practitioners we have spoken to recommend the months between December and March are the best times. Here’s why.. Between the shortest month of the year and time when the clocks go forward again, you will notice the tilt of the earth produces a lower sun levels in the sky that set quicker during these colder months. Less sun exposure means less harmful ultraviolet rays that can sometimes interfere with the healing process. Sunscreen is often ruled out before and after treatment to enable your skin to be less subjected to foreign chemicals which can hinder the healing process. If you do have your treatment during the summer, remember to protect your skin and stay out of the sun. We all know that excessive sun exposure is the main cause of wrinkles, melanoma and other skin problems, even on the healthiest skin. Secondly, who wants to be stuck indoors in the summer, when the weather is bright? Having your treatment in the winter means you can enjoy your fully-healed results outdoors in the Summer, whilst looking your best! Recovery time in the winter is easier to deal with, especially when we all like to be tucked up indoors in the warm. Thirdly, although the holiday season can be a time when we are still recovering from expensive indulging of gifts, it may also mean an affordable time for treatments. Holiday bonuses and Christmas gifts can mean we actually have a cash boost during the post-Christmas months. Don’t forget to spend some money on yourself. Buying gifts for everyone else, can often mean we naturally end up neglecting ourselves. So wrap up that present or box of treatment and put it under the tree ready for the big day when you make your way to the treatment centre. Lastly, the new year is a time of rejuvenating and reassessing how to improve our looks. New years resolutions can mean a better you and having a fresh start with a smoother, wrinkle-free appearance, can mean you are ready to embrace 2020 like you never thought possible!
