Getting older is a fact of life!
Your age is the first thing people notice about you. Nothing can stop time passing whether we like it or not as ageing is a natural process. Most people want to feel and naturally look good for their age. So, when your appearance no longer reflects how you feel inside... its time for change!
As we age, the imperfections show in our faces. Facial lines, wrinkles and folds are a normal part of the ageing process which makes us look more tired, angry or older than we really are. Skin structure changes with time and destruction of tissue cells becomes greater than its production. Our skin becomes more fragile, less elastic and flexible. The hyaluronic acid (HA) content of our skin, which is important for water retention, decreases and the oil-producing (sebaceous) glands and sweat glands become less active making your skin drier and less supple. The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth. As a result, the skin becomes more transparent and loses its youthful colour and glow. While all these changes are taking place, gravity is also at work, pulling at the skin and facial muscles causing it to sag. Hormones, sun exposure and smoking also affect how the facial skin looks. The end result is the skin becomes creased and folded.
Dynamic lines - which are due to muscular hyperactivity, best treatment is Botox and Static lines - which are due to volume loss best treatment is Dermal Fillers. Treating both of these main components of facial ageing can result in a natural, balanced and refined outcome.
Non surgical aesthetic treatments are a gentle and effective way to improve how you look and feel without the need for surgery. It has become increasingly more popular as treatment can be carried out quickly, simply and comfortably. It is also more subtle than surgical treatments (plastic surgery) and is reversible.
