Ageing is a natural process that affects almost every multicellular organism. Ageing refers to the time dependent progressive disintegration of physiological functions. Ageing can have a negative impact on a variety of physiological functions, but it is also characterised by the accumulation of wrinkles in the skin and other obvious signs of ageing. Currently there are numerous theories that aim to explain ageing. One of the most widely accepted ones is the oxidative stress theory. According to this theory our body accumulates a number of toxic compounds during its normal metabolism. While certain enzymes try to neutralise them, it is not possible to neutralise all reactive oxygen species, which leads to cellular damage and mutations. As we age our ability to neutralise reactive oxygen species reduces as well, which in turn increases the rate of damage sustenance. While there is currently a lot of research trying to solve the mystery of ageing, it is currently not possible to stop it. However, there are many treatments that can alleviate the signs of ageing.

As we age our lips naturally lose their youthful appearance. This manifests in the lips becoming thinner and less round. While there are no treatments that can address the underlying cause of this phenomenon, there are treatments that can relieve its symptoms. Lip fillers are an excellent choice for patients who would like to improve the appearance of their lips, but would not like to undergo complex and pricey surgical procedures. There are different types of lip fillers available, with different materials. While previously collagen was a preferred material, this is less frequently in use today due to some patients suffering allergic reactions from the collagen. Collagen based lip fillers have been largely replaced by hyaluronic acid based lip fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a material that is produced by the skin naturally, but it can be manufactured as well. Hyaluronic acid is unlikely to cause any allergic reactions.

As it was mentioned above, ageing deteriorates every part of the body over time. The skin is no exception. As we use our facial muscles in non-verbal communication and chewing, wrinkles might appear on the face. As we advance in our age, these wrinkles can become deeper and deeper, resulting in an undesired facial aesthetic associated with ageing. Anti-wrinkle injections can treat the signs of ageing by smoothing the surface of the skin and making it appear more youthful. Anti-wrinkle injections also utilise hyaluronic acid, as this is a material that rarely produces any allergic reactions, even when it is injected under the skin.
