There is much more to Age Control than you think
The smile on your face and the twinkle in your eyes are your best assets—and you are right in ensuring to take the best possible efforts to keep your face looking young and fresh. While a youthful face helps keep your confidence levels high, it is important to remember that the natural ageing process takes its toll on the other parts of your body as well.
Common aging signs that your body may exhibit
Parts of the body like the neck, hands, and feet are more prone to exhibiting the signs of ageing. The skin on your neck for example, has a different composition to the skin on your face. With a fewer number of sebaceous glands (the reason why you hardly ever get neck pimples), the skin on your neck is more prone to wrinkling.
Similarly, the skin on your hands and feet are prominent giveaways of your age. Since there is a very small amount of fat present in the hands and feet it is much easier for the collagen to break down faster—the reason why your hands are more susceptible to reflect the first signs of aging such as crumpled skin and prominent veins.
Other parts of the body too can exhibit signs of aging. Your legs, thighs, upper arms and décolletage could start exhibiting signs of sagging due to a decrease in the length in cell telomeres, which normally shrink as you grow older. Varicose veins, caused by wear and tear on the valves, are another sign of the aging process that manifests mostly on the legs and sometimes in the arms as well.
As you age, you hair changes as well. While the amount of hair is mostly determined by your genes, hair strands can become thinner, leading to a loss of volume and strength. Additionally, several hair follicles stop producing new hairs.
The signs of aging can extend to your most intimate regions as well. Changes over the years, such as childbirth and hormonal or weight fluctuations, can weaken and stretch your most intimate regions, making you feel much older than you actually are.
Thankfully modern dermatology and minimally invasive age control solutions are advanced enough to restore the youth and confidence you are looking for.
Taking a holistic view of anti-aging solutions
There are several treatments that your dermatologist can recommend to help you achieve natural-looking results for these tell-tale signs of ageing that go beyond the face.
Hands and feet rejuvenation: Restoring the youthful look of your hands and feet is possible with fillers, which by reinstating volume hides prominent veins and smoothens out the skin. Microdermabrasion, which buffs away the outer layer of dead cells, can eliminate age spots leading you to experience fresher and youthful looking skin. A combination of Q-switch and micropulsed Nd:YAG laser, reduces uneven discoloration, resulting in a bright and even skin tone.
Neck and décolletage smoothening: A combination of non-surgical treatments can help you achieve a slender neck and smooth décolletage. The Nefertiti lift technique helps the neck to look taut and firm. You can also use Botox to effectively treat neck bands. Another alternative is the use of threads or HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) which will help reverse the fine lines and skin laxity of the neck and décolletage area, by initiating the build-up of new collagen.
Legs and arms age-control: wraps, based on innovative botanical formulas, rejuvenate the sagging elastic fibres of the legs and arms. Pressure therapy can reduce the signs of ageing on your legs. Body contouring treatments using Radio Frequency can reduce wrinkles and give an even toned appearance to your arms and legs by helping produce collagen just under the skin.
Hair thinning solutions: Get back your thick luscious hair with minimally invasive treatments like Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Cell activation and Mesotherapy. PRP, which involves injecting the platelet-rich plasma at the level of the hair follicles, can increase the thickness of your hair. By injecting vital hair nutrients directly into your scalp, Mesotheraphy helps activate the dormant hair follicles and increases the volume.
Intimate region reconstruction: There are a host of non-surgical options to Tighten, firm and contour the intimate region. Treatments such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)and microneedling solutions like Derma Rollers & Derma Pen can rejuvenate the intimate region by inducing collagen and hyaluronic acid replenishment. Custom blended filler treatments and Q-switched laser can help restore the lost volume due to collagen loss.
Your dermatologist is your best guide
When it comes to seeking age control solutions beyond the face, it is vital to remember that your body is unique and that you may need different treatments to address different parts of your body. This is where your dermatologist can help by recommending the right mix of treatments that will bring you the maximum benefit.
So next time you consider age control solutions, know there is so much more than the face that can tell your age!
