What makes us look older?
Eye bags / Dark eye circles / Wrinkles at side of eyelids / Sagging cheeks /
Sagging face / Wrinkled face/ hooded eye lids
Dark eye circles and eye bags do occur when we are still young. This is because genes play a large part in its genesis. A classic example is atopic eyelids in the very young.
But, most importantly, also caused by sun damage to the skin around the face and photo ageing.
As we age, we lose skin tone and skin water (hydration).
The skin cells become less turgid.
The cells turn over rate (cell cycle) slows.
We use plenty of moisturizers. But is of no avail as almost all cosmetic grade moisturizers are of animal or vegetable in origin. Human is unique.
What we actually lack is internal moisturizer called HA (hyaluronic acid).
HA is now produced safely and carefully in Good Class BPO manufacturing facilities.
As we age, the collagen that supports the structure of the skin loses its strength.
The elastic fibres lose its elasticity. as such, it also rebound less.
Therefore our cheeks look droopy. This saggy look is further exaggerated by bone resorption, especially the maxillary bony prominence. We loss our youthful “apple cheeks”.
The other features that we used to like also drops. Some say we go south.
We use HA, called tissue water, to replace the hydration that is lost.
In many cases, there is no need of surgery, especially if the face skin droop is moderate. Therefore early intervention is important.
We used to fill in the troughs and valleys of the face with FDA approved fillers. Today, it is the pair of keen eyes, the accurate placement of fillers at the exact points that is the key.
Choose your medical doctor carefully to prevent any dreaded complications.
Take your time to find a skilful and patient doctor.
The end result is a fresher looking and well -defined face.
The latest method is to use a mixture of sharps and blunt cannula so as to prevent any dreaded complications
Can restore to me a fresher look, without surgery?
Yes, in many cases, to different degrees of improvement.
The skin and its underlying connective tissue are raised in 3 layers by different FDA approved tissue water.
This method restores the skin.
We also follow along the bony prominence, to help restore the bone of the face
It is better to have a series of correction over a period of 2 to 12 months. This is to ensure that the collagen and fibroblast cells can fully integrate into the fillers. Our tissue is growing well and face skin looks better.
