How To Reverse Signs Of Aging & Achieve A More Youthful Look
As you age, there is global volume loss of internal facial tissues. Your skull grows smaller with progressive bone resorption. As a result of the aging processes, your skin sags and becomes droopy. Folds at the corners of the mouth, laugh lines, tear trough and cheeks become more prominent. There is development and deepening of wrinkles. There is also development of pigmentation of the skin associated with aging.
So what can you do to look younger and prevent aging?
1) Replace the lost volume
Facial volume can be traditionally replaced with fillers. The latest trend, however, is to achieve global facial volume replacement with Sculptra, through natural collagen stimulation with l-poly-lactic acid. Sculptra, known as 'the liquid facelift', would substantially increase the collagen of your skin to correct the folds, wrinkles and skin laxity as a consequence of aging. The result looks and feels more natural than what fillers can do.
2) Tighten the skin
Skin tightening can be achieved through heating modalities like Radiofrequency, Infra-red and Ultrasound treatments. Thermage is known to induce collagen remodelling and contraction that tightens the skin. Its unique cryogen cooling ensures that the skin's surface is cooled while allowing heat to penetrate deep into the skin. Results are dependent on the number of shots delivered and the intensity of treatment. One session is all it takes and results are FDA cleared to last for about two years.
Another latest non-surgical skin tightening treatment is Ultra V Lift. Originated from South Korea and performed by over 2000 clinics there, Ultra V Lift is a revolutionary anti-wrinkle facelift and skin tightening procedure using a unique technology where fine threads called polydioxanone (PDO) that were commonly used in surgery are inserted into targeted areas under the skin to stimulate skin tissue. Ultra V Lift can be applied to anywhere on the body, including the face, eye corners, cheeks, neck, forehead, laugh lines, forearm and abdomen. It can use to heighten the nose bridge, giving it a natural elevated look. The procedure is fast and result is natural.
3) Diminish the wrinkles
Nothing comes close to improving the appearance of wrinkles than treatment with wrinkle injection. It is the most practised aesthetic procedure and there are reasons why almost everyone on earth have heard about it. It is cosmetically safe, effective, takes only a few minutes to perform and has no downtime. Not only does it confers youthfulness, it also prevents the expression wrinkles from further deepening.
Our greatest challenge probably lies in treating melasma, which sometimes requires a combination of creams, light therapies and Cosmelan Peel, a very well known chemical peel for melasma, for the best possible results. In summary, it is possible to look 5-10 years younger with advancement in medical science, through volume replacement, skin tightening, erasing wrinkles and lightening pigment. You just need a doctor who understands aging to deliver the results for you.
