Why does skin age?
Beauty and youth are both result of dynamic cellular communications emerging out of interactions between neurones, cells and proteins within them. Body has endogenous mechanisms to repair itself and sustain youth. But the signals that control these mechanisms
fade away and so does youth.
In skin processes like renewal of epidermal cells, collagen & elastin formation reduces with age. With increasing age, the hyaluronic acid content in the skin decreases, reducing its capacity to stay moist and supple. Oil-producing glands reduce their
activity and the skin becomes dry. The skin also starts losing its fat, thus looking less youthful and smooth.Then non surgical face lift is the solution.
What are signs of aging?
Fine lines around eyes & mouth
Pigmented spots- age spots
Expression line formation
General skin deterioration
What are various Causes of Facial Wrinkles?
Sun exposure (UV light) – Chronic UV exposure, especially in cities like Mumbai, is one of the most common causes of skin wrinkling. UV radiation leads to the thinning of the epidermis (top layer
of the skin) and the breakdown of collagen (the major structural protein in skin), both resulting in premature aging. Excessive radiation can also cause skin cancers and pigmentation. A good sunscreen thus protects
the skin from its harmful effects.
Expression lines – These wrinkles are a result of the underlying muscle movement used for facial expression. While making expressions, the skin compresses, leading to wrinkle formation. Initially, these
lines appear only when the muscles contract, i.e. when you smile/frown, but with age, these become more permanent and appear even when the muscles are at rest. Botox helps relax these lines.
Facial volume loss – When younger, our face is more plump and fuller, but as time passes, this volume is lost causing laxity and thinning of skin. Fat around the eyes, cheeks, and forehead gets
depleted, leading to lax skin and wrinkles. Facial volume loss also results in an older, more gaunt appearance. Non-surgical facial reshaping with dermal fillers can help to replace this lost volume, improving
both wrinkles and the overall youthfulness of the face.
Gravity – The pull of gravity draws the skin downwards on the face. This results in drooping cheeks, nasolabial lines (the lines from the corners of the mouth to the nose) and jowls, drooping of
the eyebrows and wrinkles.
Sleep lines – Contact with a pillow when sleeping leads to skin compression. One can detect sleep lines from vertically or diagonally-oriented lines on the side of the forehead or cheek.
Glare – Squinting to avert the glare from sunlight often causes frown lines and crow's feet (lines around the eyes on smiling).
Facial fat changes – Facial fat gets redistributed with age; it gets lost in some areas and accumulated in others. This can be seen in the cheeks, around the eyes and temples, producing a gaunt
and drawn look. The lower lids may have protruding fat pads. Slack muscles and excessive fat accumulation below the chin produces the familiar double chin. Double chin is the extra layer of fatty tissue, that
is visible below our chin
Lifestyle changes – Due to its inherent sucking movement, smoking is one of the most obvious causes of wrinkling around the mouth. Also, to protect the eyes from the smoke, there can be wrinkling
of the area around the eyes causing crow's feet.
Dietary deficiencies – Lack of a balanced diet and a low intake of antioxidants also contribute to taking away the fountain of youth from the face.
How does Skin look at different ages?
At 25 – Visible aging of the skin starts and the skin begins to replace old cells more slowly.
At 30 – More fine lines develop as collagen and elastin break down and the delicate skin under both the eyes begins to thin.
At 40 – Deeper lines begin to form around the mouth and eyes. Furrows appear on the forehead and circles under the eyes may grow into pouches. Skin becomes noticeably drier.
At 45 + – Skin becomes thinner, partly because of hormonal changes, thus losing much of its strength and elasticity.
At 50 + – Age starts to show on your face.
Why Define Aesthetics for non surgical face lift ?
We believe that restoring beauty goes much beyond just taking care of wrinkles or pigmentation. We need to understand that beauty and youth are ‘gestalts’. Gestalt means what emerges is more than the sum total of the parts that compose it. That’s why
an asymmetrical face can look beautiful or a young girl with wrinkles or dark circles still unmistakably looks young.
Most technologies like Botulinum toxin or Fillers only target one or two out of several components that compose youth. You look better maintained because of absence of wrinkles but you still look your age
To restore youth, only removing lines, wrinkles or pigmentation is not sufficient . Define Aesthetics offers you the next generation NANOTECHNOLOGY which is a true Anti-aging technology. Its signal synchs with body’s endogenous signals and is able to
boost cell’s ability to repair & regenerate. A body that can repair itself can’t age. Hence it truly reverses the process of aging.
