Facial aging has certain characteristics that are best described as the 3 D’s. These are Deflation, Descent, and Deterioration, and each typifies different conditions that affect the skin, muscle, and tissue of the face. When taken together, these all contribute to facial aging. However, it is possible to improve your appearance and counteract these signs, with the use of non-surgical procedures.
Deflation : This refers to the loss of facial volume, particularly around the cheeks and brows. Volume loss may be the result of falling collagen levels. Collagen is an essential skin protein that contributes to the full, plump, appearance of the face. As collagen levels decline with age, the face looks lean and sunken. Facial rejuvenation can be achieved with the use of dermal fillers such asJuvederm® and Radiesse®. When injected into these areas, they increase fullness, and smooth facial wrinkles.
Descent : This is the sagging of facial tissues and is due to a number of factors including gravity, declining hormones, collagen loss, and genetics. This makes your face look droopy and flabby. One of the best treatments to tighten skin is the innovative Endymed 3 DEEP RF that we use here at Fountain of Youth MedSpa.
The Endymed 3 DEEP RF uses next generation RF technology to firm the skin, and restore a youthful appearance, with no downtime. The RF energy released by theEndymed 3 DEEP heats the collagen in the dermal layer of the skin, and this stimulates collagen production, and tightens the skin.
Skin tone and overall skin quality can also be improved with bio-identical hormone therapy. This procedure restores hormonal balance using hormones that are similar in structure to those found in the body. Dr. Nhi Le is board certified in the use of bio-identical hormones.
Deterioration : As we age, the texture and complexion of the skin changes. Skin often becomes dull, pores get larger and brown spots and wrinkles appear. This deterioration usually occurs on the upper layer of the skin.While it is best to start skin care early, the range of skin rejuvenation options available makes it possible to restore skin that has been neglected in the past.
Skin Rejuvenation Options: Overall facial deterioration can be treated with intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy,chemical peels, Fraxel, and skin resurfacing. IPL has traditionally been used to perform photofacials to reduce brown spots and broken veins. Chemical peels are used to gently exfoliate the skin to improve texture, and reduce pore size. Fraxel helps stimulate new collagen by reaching deep into the skin’s dermis.
If you want to put moisture back in your skin and create a smooth appearance, then you can do so with HydraFacial. It’s a revolutionary technique to exfoliate dead skin cells, and hydrate the skin. After these treatments, you will be amazed how refreshed and youthful your skin looks. The results are similar to those you would expect with a surgical facelift. However while a surgical facelift tightens the face, these procedures restore volume and repair skin damage.
