5 game-changing treatments that turns back the aging clock
It’s no secret that as we get older, we lose collagen and gain more lines, wrinkles, discolouration and even sagginess, all of which pile on years to our faces. Although it’s true we are now exposed to an expanse of laser treatments and non-surgical procedures, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and lost with all the choices we have. If you are looking for the 5 game-changing treatments that you must invest in for turning back the clock, we have them covered in this article.
This is a popular antiaging treatment that has been around for years and for good reason. Using medical ultrasound technology that is FDA-approved, Ultherapy works deep below the skin’s surface to aid in skin lifting, firming and tightening to reduce the dreaded sag. Visible results can be seen post treatment for laugh lines and drooping corners of the mouth.
Improvements can also be made around the eye area to lift the brow, reducing droopiness, smoothing crow’s feet and generally achieve a more refreshed look to the eyes.
Skin benefits can be seen from 3 to 6 months post treatment and you will appreciate a more defined jaw line and an overall improvement in skin texture and evenness in colour.
#2 Thermage FLX
Thermage FLX is a treatment that complements well with Ultherapy to rejuvenate the skin. Another FDA-approved treatment, Thermage FLX uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production and skin tightening.
The new Thermage CPT system uniformly heats a large volume of collagen in deeper layers of the skin and its underlying tissue with improved comfort, using the in-built vibrating hand-piece. This will help the deep structures of the skin to tighten, and restore healthy, smooth looking skin.
For those concerned with eyelids that have become hooded over the years, you’ll be pleased to know that Thermage FLX can help to address this too, lifting the tightening this delicate area.
#3 Youth Savant
If you’re looking to treat the root rather than the symptoms of aging, Youth Savant might be the treatment for you. The root cause of aging is our DNA and by introducing PDRN to the skin, it repairs and protects cells from UV-induced DNA damage, effectively retarding the aging process of your skin and rejuvenating your skin at the same time. What you’ll happily notice is an improvement to your skin health; skin tone appears brighter and more luminous, with fine lines diminished and skin elasticity restored.
Youth Savant is administered via a series of small microinjections to the skin hence it’s common to experience some downtime with this procedure in the form of mild bruising and pin-prick marks but this can be easily covered up with makeup. This procedure is also made more comfortable with the application of numbing cream prior, so it’s unlikely you will feel much pain or discomfort.
#4 Nefertiti FaceLift
A sure sign of youth is a slender neck with a defined jawline, and while it’s common to focus our antiaging efforts on our faces, the neck should not be neglected either. As with other parts of our face that starts to show signs of sagginess, the skin and muscles around the neck area is subject to the same distress of aging.
The muscles in the neck, also known as platysma are directly connected to your jawline, and with its heavy use throughout the day, it gets strained even from our facial expressions. Over time, these muscles lose their tautness and the skin around here starts to sag. Say hello to the Nefertiti Lift, that administers muscle-relaxing injections to relieve tension in the platysma muscles, reducing the downward pull of the skin on your neck and jaws.
You’ll experience a natural lifting effect around the lower jawline and also smoother skin around the neck from this procedure. Win win!
Repeated sessions are recommended for best results and each treatment can give you results that last for 3 to 5 months.
#5 Infinity V Lift
As we age, the shape and balance of our facial alters, so it’s not your eyes playing tricks on you. By now, it’s clear that everything goes south as we age. To regain lift and defined facial contours without surgery, threadlifts are the way to go.
Using bio-absorbable PDO threads, Infinity V Lift is a great way to lift and reposition saggy facial tissues, restoring a youthful, defined V-shape visage.
This is a fully customised procedure so you can be assured of a natural outcome that is long lasting. Over time, the threads are fully dissolved in your body but they would also have stimulated the production of collage to replace the threads, hence the natural lifting effect your face will thank you for.
