What age should we start getting concerned about the anti-aging strategies? If we take into consideration that the skin is the largest and the most visible organ of the body, bordering the outside environment and the inside environment, then skin protection should start as soon as possible, at our very birth.
Nowadays there are thousands of invasive and non-invasive skin care products and aesthetic procedures. You don’t need to worry if you don’t know which ones work the best for your skin. Skin rejuvenation is possible if you have correct information and a well planned skin care strategy, based on age stages. Because each life stage has different needs: treatments for acne, wrinkle removal or tightening of sagging skin. Because some of the procedures that are adequate for a 50 year old person may have a negative impact on a 30 year old person - and vice-versa. Because the bone structure, the face configuration and 10 years of life are critical factors in the process of selection of the treatment type.
Even when many skin care issues due to premature ageing are still not visible, it is important to prevent them whenever possible. Along with the ageing process, the skin loses water and elasticity, and implicitly its beauty and its smoothness. At the same time, the skin collagen decreases and determines the premature ageing of the skin, as well as the appearance of the wrinkles. The lines that appear between the eyebrows, at the outer corner of the eyes or on the forehead are actually the result of the continuous movement of the face muscles. Botox blocks the contraction of the muscles, leading to a substantial, yet reversible decrease of muscle movement.
The injectible fillers (such as Juvederm, Restylane) can attenuate the wrinkles, can "plump up" the lips and can reduce the "hollow" aspect of certain areas of the face. While we grow older, the hyaluronic acid content in the skin decreases. This is very important for the retention of the water. The skin becomes dehydrated. The secretion of the sebaceous gland decreases and the skin becomes drier. All these result in the deepening of the static wrinkles (the ones that are not caused by the muscle movements). The hyaluronic acid fillers can attenuate these wrinkles. At the same time, they can reduce the hollow aspect of the face and can replace the deficit volumes in the area of cheekbones or under the eyes.
