tips to look younger

Everyone wants to appear beautiful and youthful, therefore we all work hard to keep ourselves in good shape. However, sometimes, ageing starts showing on our skin, making us sad and worried. That is why, taking proper care of our skin is equally important.

As the skin on the neck is more delicate than the skin on the rest of the body, it's even more crucial to look after it. Fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles are all symptoms of ageing, which has become a common problem among women in their 30s. 

Skin ageing is a natural process that occurs when our skin begins to age early because of our unhealthy habits and poor environmental conditions. Premature ageing can make you appear older than you are, which is never a good indication.

We spoke with Dr. Parag Telang, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Director of Designer Bodyz Centre for advanced cosmetic surgery, to learn about the signs of ageing and how to prevent premature skin ageing.

What Causes Ageing Of Skin?

what causes skin ageing

The skin's collagen support continues to deteriorate as we age. As a result, the skin develops wrinkles and appears to be aged.  At the same time, the facial tissues and muscles lose tone and become slack on a deeper level. All of these factors contribute to the sagging of facial skin.

Skin care routines can help to delay the onset of skin sagging. Collagen supplements in powder or liquid form can be taken on a regular basis to help maintain optimal collagen levels and prevent wrinkles. Basic skin care tips, such as regular water intake and sun protection, are also beneficial.

How Can Skin Be Tightened?

For tightening of skin, Dermal fillers are a good option. They are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural component of the skin. Dermal fillers are gels that can be used to tighten the skin around the eyes and cheeks and make the face look younger.

Tips To Improve Skin Sagging

skin ageing is natural

As we age, our tissues lose their tone, causing sagging. Skin sagging is a natural phenomenon that begins in our 30s and progresses as we get older. COG threads are the most recent treatment option for correcting sagging. These threads are composed of PLA, a dissolving material that remains for 1.5-2 years. This thread lifting procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and requires only a two- to three-day recovery time.

For advanced sagging of the face in older people, a surgery called facelift and necklift can be performed. This results in a significant improvement in facial appearance, making a person appear 15-20 years younger. Surgical procedures need 3-4 weeks of recovery time, however the end result lasts for many years.

Wrinkles: What Causes Them And How To Get Rid Of Them

The action of specific muscles causes wrinkles. However, by injecting botulinum toxin (Botox) into specific places, these can be eliminated as well. This works for 6-8 months before needing to be redone. These injections are very safe and have an excellent anti-aging effect by reducing wrinkles.

Latest Advances In Anti-Ageing Treatments

Nano-fat injections and PRP are two of the most recent anti-aging advances. 

Regenerative cells abound in our own fat and blood.  

In Nano-fat treatment, a small quantity of our fat is extracted with a tiny needle, processed, and the concentrate is injected in specified regions of the face to reduce wrinkles, sagging, and dark bags beneath the eyes.

Similarly, platelet rich plasma (PRP) can be extracted from our own blood and injected into targeted areas of the face for anti-aging effects. 

There are a variety of modern laser treatments and face tightening technologies available, such as HIFU (High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound) and Ultherapy, that can help with skin laxity.

Your cosmetic plastic surgeon can tell you which treatment is appropriate for you and create a personalised treatment plan for the best results.
