3 Nonsurgical Solutions For The Aging Face

Aug 17, 2007
Aging is a process that has many features. No where are these manifest more than in facial skin. All one must do is look in the mirror to demonstrate this. For example the skin gets drier, it losses its natural properties such as elasticity and gets irregular color and it sags. And the bones of the face and muscles actually lose volume as a person ages.

To the cosmetic surgeon, it is characterized by 3 d's- dryness, deflation (loss of volume) and descent (falling). Recently, all three of these have been addressed by nonsurgical techniques. This article will tell you about 3 of them.

Combating Dryness with the Ultimate Hydrating Technique

One of the primary problems with winter is that the skin tends to lose more of its moisture. Also, with age, the skin loses its ability to retain moisture because of loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Recently, a product called Javani (easy Indian for radiant youth) has come to our rescue. It has devised an age defying, ultra-moisturing facial. The way it works is this:

1.) first the skin is exfoliated with a microdermabrasion machine in an estheticians office.
2.) The skin is infused with a collagen based gel. An ultrasound machine helps to get the collagen based gel into the deeper parts of the skin
3.) A home maintenance program then helps to maintain the results.

Right after the treatment, the skin feels softer, silkier and smoother, and superficial lines and wrinkles are almost completely eliminated. As with any typical facial, a single treatment will unfortunately only last several days. So this procedure is ideal before a big event, where a client needs rapid and dramatic improvement but only has a few days to attain it. But the nice thing of this treatment is that with a weekly treatment for six weeks, the results can last much longer.

Combating The Sagging With Radio Waves

Until recently, the only thing that could help sagging were lifting procedures such as facelifts and thread lifts. Unfortunately, this required downtime for the patient.

This changed in the mid 1990s with the invention of Thermage, a machine that puts radio waves under the skin. It can tighten the skin and was first used on the face. It has subsequently been used on the eyes, the abdomen and the arms. Wrinkled, loose skin can now magically disappear with no downtime.

Combating The Loss of Volume with The Restylift (Volumalift)

Recently the restytlift has been shown to fill in the face. Its benefits are:

1.) the RestyLift provides instantaneous results without surgery
2.) the RestyLift requires no pre-testing, no treatment delay
3.) the RestyLift provides longer-lasting results
4.) the RestyLift restores volume and fullness, naturally
5.) the RestyLift requires little to no downtime
6.) the RestyLift treatment can be combined with other treatments
7.) the RestyLift is safe, effective and non-invasive
8.) RestyLift creates a rested and lifted look

The ideal candidate is someone who hates looking in the mirror because you always look tired as well as older because of droopy eyebrows and eyelids, hollow-deflated cheeks, lower face jowls and lines and grooves around the nose and mouth .

And the procedure is simple. Using Restylane - your cosmetic surgeon will volumize those facial areas of concern by making small injections into specific, targeted areas. These injections instantly restore volume and contour to those deflated areas, safely and effectively. This is relatively painless due to the anesthetic included in the injection.

So, we have 3 new solutions to the aging face. Combined with a good cosmetic routine and voila - a new you!!
