Anti-Aging

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.

Anti-Aging

Aging is multifactorial. It affects all layers of the face, the skin, muscle, fat, and bone. Combination treatments with different modalities to address all layers would give a better outcome.

Treatments we offer

  • Radiofrequency Skin Tightening – The latest 3D deep technology will tighten the face, neck skin. You may require 6/8 sessions once a week. 
  • High Intensity Focused Ultrasound – New cosmetic treatment, called a non-surgical facelift. HIFU energy penetrates through deep layers of skin and stimulates new collagen and elastin. Its three different cartridges 1.5, 3 & 4.5, allow the energy to be deposited at different depths of the skin and rejuvenate the entire skin. It also stimulates the SMAS layer under the skin, leading to tightening and lifting the skin. The result would be a V shape lift, improvement in the nasolabial fold, double chin, and brow lift.
  • Botox – Botox is a neurotoxin that relaxes hypertonic muscles. Used in neurology to relax stiff muscles in cerebral palsy etc… In low doses, it is used to relax facial muscles. The hypertonicity of facial muscles is responsible for expressions like crows feet, frown line, forehead lines, etc… Its effect stays for 4/6 months.
  • Dermal Fillers – Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are used to fill the list volume with age. Fillers lift the descending fat pads and improve the facial contour. Fillers are used for cheek augmentation, forehead and temple shaping, brow lift, tear trough, nasolabial folds, lip, nose, chin, jaw augmentation. Dermal fillers not only erase years from the face but also beautifies it.
  • Thread lift threads are used to lift the sagging skin like the lower face, brows, neck, etc…
  • Skin resurfacing – Fractional lasers, co2, erbium are used to resurface the aged skin. These ablative lasers will remove the upper layer of the skin. The heat generated will stimulate new collagen, resulting in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • PRP and Skin Boosters – The PRP’s growth factors will stimulate fibroblasts to form new collagen and stabilize the melanocytes. Various boosters with hyaluronic acid, vitamins, etc., are good biostimulants.

We will assess your face and suggest a personalized anti-aging protocol that suits you.
