The skin matures and reveals age. The appearing wrinkles often give a harsh or sad expression. The loss of skin firmness, its falling off, can completely change the facial features and appearance of a person. Rejuvenating and revitalizing treatments are used to cover up the aging process of the skin and regain a youthful appearance even for the next few years. The most popular treatments are immediate and low-invasive.
Mature skin is advanced age skin that has lost its elasticity, radiance and constant level of hydration. It is assumed that women and men over 40 have mature skin, but apart from the birth certificate, it is also influenced by diet, stress level, genes, skin exposure to the sun and, of course, skin care. What else is behind the term "mature"? First of all, wrinkles disliked by everyone.
Many women wonder if their skin has already matured after the age of 25. After all, unwanted lines appear in the corners of the eyes, on the forehead, and around the neckline. These are expression lines caused by the natural expression of the face, which do not change the shape of the face. They arise when you laugh, cry or… make silly faces. The second type of wrinkles are gravitational wrinkles and you can fight them. Their formation is associated with a reduced amount of collagen and elastin in the skin, obviously caused by the passage of time. Then the skin becomes saggy, starts to "hang" from the face, the natural oval disappears, the muscles support the skin less.
The appearance of wrinkles is a sign that it is worth intensifying existing skin care activities or adding completely new methods to them. Aesthetic medicine differs from home care in that it acts on the skin from the inside and its effects are more effective. If this is your first visit to the clinic, do not choose a random treatment from the price list that is offered by a beautician near your home. It's best to read the relevant information about each of the recommended treatments for mature skin, and then make an appointment.
Rejuvenating treatments - volumetric face lifting
The treatment involves injecting a filler that increases the volume of tissues under the skin, which is hyaluronic acid or polylactic acid. Volumetric lifting lasts from 30 to 60 minutes. During the procedure, the patient experiences stinging and a feeling of being pushed under the skin. The immediate effect is a huge advantage of the volumetric lifting. With the help of the selected acid, you can smooth out wrinkles and furrows, but also lift the cheeks and firm the skin. However, the most important thing during volumetry is to model the oval of the face.
The treatment costs from $800 to $3000 depending on the face area.
The effect lasts from six months to two years. The difference in time is the result of using preparations of different strength. After the treatment, swelling, itching, bruising and discoloration may occur. Contraindications to volumetry are: allergy to hyaluronic / polylactic acid, acne skin, herpes, tendency to keloids.
Mesotherapy with hyaluronic acid preparations is recommended, even for people who want to stop the first signs of aging. This substance, introduced directly by means of numerous injections to a depth of a few millimeters, guarantees deep hydration of the epidermis and maintains the turgor of the epidermis for a long time. The best results are obtained after a series of treatments (at least 4 treatments at intervals of 20-30 days).
For people with mimic wrinkles around the eyes or on the forehead, there is a treatment that uses the action of botulinum toxin. The popular BOTOX blocks the conduction of stimuli from the nerves to the small muscles responsible for facial expressions. This prevents the contraction of these muscles, and at the same time wrinkles and folds of the skin, and thus the fixation and deepening of wrinkles. BOTOX only works in the muscles into which it has been injected, while the rest of the muscles continue to function.
A novelty in some aesthetic dermatology offices is a treatment that uses the effects of hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin, the so-called Botoxlift or Mesobotulin. This treatment is intended for people with dry skin covered with a network of fine mimic wrinkles.
To fill wrinkles and furrows, we recommend preparations with hyaluronic acid, guaranteeing a nice, natural effect.
All invasive rejuvenating treatments should be performed by a doctor, in appropriate sanitary conditions and with the use of approved and tested preparations.
Rejuvenating treatments - wrinkle fillers
As the name suggests, during this treatment, the greatest attention is paid to smoothing out wrinkles and filling in furrows. This is done by injecting a thin needle of hyaluronic acid under the patient's skin. The wrinkle filling procedure takes about 30 minutes. The preparation is injected into different layers of the skin depending on the age and condition of the skin.
The cost of filling in wrinkles / furrows is about $1000.
Fillers are currently one of the most popular aesthetic medicine treatments for mature skin, because it does not require any preparation, the effect is visible immediately after leaving the office, and swellings and bruises disappear the next day.
The effect lasts from half to one and a half years. Contraindications include: allergy to hyaluronic acid, skin lesions within the face, herpes, acne lesions. The advantage of the treatment is limited interference with the skin. When hyaluronic acid is active, the patient's skin looks young, radiant, smooth and taut. After this time, it returns to its normal state (as before the procedure). The preparation is not addictive and does not worsen the condition of the skin, so the effect is not irreversible. The treatment of filling wrinkles and furrows can be repeated when the effects are no longer visible.
Rejuvenating treatments - lifting threads
Lifting threads are also called lifting without a scalpel. Why? The patient is under anesthesia, and then the doctor inserts a thin needle with a thread under the skin, which is then inserted into the tissue. Thanks to this, the treatment is minimally invasive, and at the same time it can significantly lift selected areas on the face and body. It is recommended, among others for changing the shape of the eyebrow arches, modeling the lower jaw, improving the appearance of the neck and cleavage, firming the bust, eliminating stretch marks.
The changes obtained with the threads can be really visible, but it all depends on the patient's decision. Keep in mind that even a slight lifting of the browbones will create a completely different look.
The cost of the procedure with the use of lifting threads is in the range of $1000-5000.
The introduction of lifting threads takes 15 to 60 minutes. The full effect is visible one month after the treatment. At this time, the threads stimulate collagen production, elastic synthesis and hydration of the subcutaneous tissue. The effect lasts from a year to one and a half.
For some time after the procedure, you should limit intense facial expressions, sleeping on your stomach or side, laughing and rubbing the skin, because the threads may move during such activities. Contraindications for the procedure with the use of lifting threads are mental diseases, epilepsy, the use of anticoagulants, blood clotting disorders and skin inflammations.
