TRADE SECRETS

The treatments your friends
are having - and not telling
you about

Is someone in your social group looking more bright-eyed than usual? Does that jawline appear a tad more chiselled? Some of your friends may secretly be getting the latest cosmetic treatments. Here's the low-down to keep you in the know.
Shhh...

Cosmetic procedures such as injectables are no longer a dirty little secret. Just as you chat with your friends about your laser hair removal and hair colour appointments, you share the ins and outs of your latest filler “tweakment” or anti-wrinkle rejuvenation. And while you may think nothing is off-limits on your WhatsApp group, there are some newly popular treatments that your friends might be having and not telling you about. Have you noticed anyone in your inner circle sporting brighter eyes, a taut and sculpted jawline or youthful, plump cheeks? No, they haven’t just gotten really great at contouring. They’re more than likely reaping the benefits from these game-changing, non-surgical injectable treatments.

Refresh your eyes and
correct the creases

There’s only so much an eye cream can do for those dark circles that hang under the eyes, no matter how much sleep you’ve scored. If dark circles or tear troughs – a deep crease between the lower eyelid and upper cheek – bother you, dermal filler can be used to correct the hollows or plump the creases that create shadowing and dark circles. The result is a brighter, refreshed, “more awake” appearance. During the Dark Circles + Tear Troughs treatment, dermal filler is carefully injected into the skin beneath the lower eyelid. There may be some swelling, bruising and redness post-treatment, but these side effects usually improve after 48 to 72 hours. 

Get plump &
perky cheeks

Remember when your great aunt used to pinch your full, angelic cheeks? Where did that pillowy, plumpness go? As we age, we start to lose volume in certain areas of the face, which can make us look tired and sunken. Some of the first and most noticeable areas to lose volume is the cheeks. Cheek fillers are injections that instantly boost the volume of the area around the cheekbone to create a more defined structure. The injection process is simple and will only take 20 minutes or so. The Very Cheeky Cheeks treatment could be a good option for people looking to restore plumpness to their cheekbones, as well as those wanting a more contoured and symmetrical face shape. There may be some redness and swelling post-treatment, but this usually dissipates after 24 hours. Some people may experience bruising for up to seven days.

Create definition &
a slimmer face

Taut, defined jawlines are becoming the envy of almost everyone – who doesn’t envy Bella Hadid’s tight, smooth and photogenic jaw? And while it may sound a little counter-intuitive, a slimmer, more defined jawline can be created by adding dermal filler to the area. When strategically injected along the mandible (lower jaw), dermal filler creates a subtle separation between the jawline and neck, giving the illusion of a thinner, more angular face.

Jaw filler could be a great non-surgical option for you if you want to rebuild volume in the lower face, reduce the appearance of jowls, strengthen or add proportion to the chin, or bring delicate angles to a rounded face. During the Jaw Filler treatment, dermal filler will be injected along the mandible. It is a relatively quick process. Any redness or swelling post-treatment usually improves after 24 hours. Some may experience bruising, which can last up to a week.

Some things to
remember

The first consideration with dermal fillers is that not everybody is suitable for all treatments. At Clear Skincare, a thorough facial analysis is performed before any procedure to decide if it is suitable for you. Dermal filler products last on average 9-12 months, and over time the filler will dissolve and metabolise into the skin tissue.
