I’ve never had cosmetic treatment. Where should I start?

I’ve never had non-surgical cosmetic treatment. Where should I start? Will the changes be subtle?

As we age, we lose bone and fat in the face. We also lose collagen in our skin. Collagen is the protein that keeps our skin tight and minimises wrinkles and sagging. Ageing, and the loss of bone, fat and collagen causes the youthful “heart-shaped face” to fall with gravity, and become more “square” and hollow.
Replacing lost volume in the face with filler is a great place to start. Think of it as building the strong foundations for a house. Not many people realise just how much difference replacing lost volume can make. The results are subtle, but noticeable. It is a very natural way of making someone look more youthful. Rather than look like you’ve obviously had fillers, it just gives you a subtle freshen up, like you’ve had a great night’s sleep.
People are often amazed that simply adding volume to the cheeks can have such an amazing effect on bags under the eyes, and lines from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It’s my favourite place to start.
