Even though most people don’t like to admit it openly, facial aging happens to everyone. It is a normal, inescapable part of the growth process. At some point in everybody’s life, they are bound to notice some changes in their face to signify that they are getting old.
While some of these signs are not immediately visible, others here are quite obvious, and they often cause people to worry once they start to appear. Some of these signs are:
- Fine lines
- Brown spots
- “Crepey” skin texture
- Loose, sagging skin
Some lifestyle choices, including but not limited to diet, exercise, exposure to the sun, and smoking, may speed up the aging process. Irrespective of these factors, however, facial aging is sure to happen to everybody. It is unavoidable.
A lot of money is spent yearly by millions of people on skin enhancement products and surgical procedures. People took pride in being asked who their doctor was or where they’d had their job done. However, most people do not know that there are now various technologies available to enhance the skin without going under the knife. The best thing about some of these procedures is instead of completely altering a person’s appearance; they serve to enhance a person’s natural look, lending the skin an indefinable, youthful glow.
There are various new technologies for non-Invasive skin rejuvenation, but the most common three are:
- Micro-needling with Radiofrequency
- Nano fat Injections
- Thread Lifts
- MICRO-NEEDLING WITH RADIOFREQUENCY
Micro- Skin needling involves the process of delivering minor injuries to the face and at the same time transmitting radiofrequency energy to the deep dermis layers through the needles. The body responds to these injuries naturally by stimulating collagen and elastin production, which result in a smoother, younger, lifted face.
- NANO FAT INJECTIONS
Fat grafting is a procedure that involves the removal of fat from a particular region of the body and placing it in another. In recent years, it has fast become an effective technique employed by plastic surgeons. It works exceedingly well when used to increase the volume of the buttocks, breasts, and face.
Nano fat injections carry out fat grafting on a much smaller micro-level. Rather than taking ample fat folds to add volume to the cheeks or any other facial structures, tiny droplets of fat are instead injected all over the skin to thicken it. This procedure gives a more youthful look that is plumper and more hydrated. The stem cells present in the fat droplets help to increase blood flow and release growth hormones to heal old, damaged cells.
- THREAD LIFT
One of the biggest concerns of patients is jowling. It occurs as a result of loss of volume in the face. It could also happen due to a drop in collagen and elastin in the skin, starting in the ’20s. While jowling has proved difficult to treat without surgery, thread lifts have proven to be a minimally invasive procedure carried out without surgery or anesthesia.
The good thing about these procedures is that, when done well, they do not focus on making excessively noticeable changes to the face but instead aim to provide a natural look projecting good health, peace of mind, happiness, rest, and adequate sleep. So, when next you are feeling insecure about some aging signs on your face, you can as well consider one of these skin rejuvenation treatments.
