There are many aesthetic medicine treatment options available to treat “Deterioration, Descent and Deflation”; the 3 D’s of naturally-occurring age related facial changes.
Deterioration of the skin becomes more and more obvious when we age. The skin becomes thinner, less elastic, loses hydration as well as its strength. The skin no longer has its youthful glow and radiance.
Pigmented brown spots, uneven skin colour, fine lines, wrinkles and small veins begin to appear. This is due to the inefficient shedding of old dead cells from the skin’s surface, resulting in enlarged pores, rough skin, and an irregular skin texture. Aesthetic treatments which make use of energy devices like medical lasers, radiofrequency and Intense Pulse Light are very useful in treating these changes.
Descent of the lower face and fat around the cheeks is caused by gravity. As older skin is thinner and less elastic, more folds appear. Of particular concern are the deepening folds of skin between the cheeks and the upper lip area (nasolabial folds), and downward folds from the corners of the mouth to the jawline (marionette lines). The facial triangle of youth with a narrower lower face, will later age into a square shaped face.
Deflation arises as the fat pockets in the face shrink as we get older. Reabsorption of bone structure follows, and this makes the face even more sunken.
Non Surgical Treatments for Age Related Skin Changes
We have developed many non-surgical treatments to successfully deal with these age related changes. My treatments almost always combine a few cutting edge aesthetic modalities to give the best results. Because every face is different, and that there is no “one size fits all” treatment, the best option is for you to have a consultation, so that we can plan together a unique customized treatment strategy specifically suited to meet your desires.
