Aging is a complex process involving all organs, but skin aging is visible. The reasons can be intrinsic (internal factors like genetic, hormones, and metabolism) or extrinsic (external factors like UV rays, sun, artificial light, and pollution).
Also, gravity can pull the skin down, leading to sagging. Aging occurs in all facial layers like skin, muscles, fat layer, and bone. Skin turnover reduces, leading to dull, lusterless skin. Loss of collagen, elastin, supportive GAG, and mucopolysaccharides lead to loose skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Muscles become rigid and hypertonic leading to expression lines like crows feet, forehead lines, frown lines, and mouth frown.
You may lose facial fat compartments responsible for the face’s youthful contour, flattened or descended leading tear through, and nasolabial folds.
A healthy lifestyle, a good diet, and sleep help you age healthily. Sunscreen for protection from harmful UV rays and pollution will be the mainstay for a preventive anti-aging protocol. Your skin routine should include AHAs, retinol, peptides, antioxidants like Vitamin C, and E.
We start “Prejuvenation,” i.e., procedures to prevent aging or age healthy at the ’30s. These include skin tightening procedures like radiofrequency, IPL, and HIFU. Skin rejuvenation like laser toning, vitamin infusions. And skin boosters which are injectables, stimulate fibroblasts to synthesize new collagen and elastin, leading to tight, refreshed, and rejuvenated skin. These boosters can be growth factors, hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and PRP.
Anti-aging strategies include addressing all layers of the face.
Skin wrinkles, fine lines, loose and lax skin can be corrected by resurfacing lasers, skin tightening, chemical peels, Derma rollers, and MNRF.
We can take care of the expression lines like crows feet, forehead lines, and frown lines due to hypertonic muscles by relaxing those muscles with Botox. This will make you look relaxed and younger.
We can use dermal fillers to fill the volume loss in fat compartments. Dermal fillers will bring back youthful facial contours and enhance facial features like nose and lips.
We can use threads to lift the saggy skin.
A combination of these treatments depending on the individual facial assessment, would give a better outcome. We will assess you to individualize preventive and corrective maintenance of anti-aging protocols.
