As we get older, our skin presents various signs of aging. Aging is first spotted on our face, as it is the most exposed body part. Getting older is an unavoidable truth, and accepting its arrival can make the natural aging process easier for us to deal with. The skin shows various changes over time and thus numerous ways are there to delay natural skin aging and make sure we always look best. 

Anyone aged above 40 years, experiences a gradual change in their facial appearance. The first sign is a loss of firmness in the skin around the eyes and mouth. Following this, the fine lines and wrinkles may deepen, and the brows and jawline may sag. Thankfully, mild to severe facial aging can be reversed. In this blog, one can learn about the causes of facial aging and the most effective facial anti-aging treatments in Hyderabad provided at Eternelle Aesthetics by anti-aging doctors and cosmetic surgeons. 

Why Does Face Age?

With advancing age, the facial muscles and nerves tend to lose their strength. So do the cheekbones. This decline is known as 'atrophy' in the medical field. Everyone has it, yet genetics can influence how quickly people age.

As atrophy progresses, the skin loses its structural protein fibres: the collagen responsible for skin firmness and the elastin that gives skin elasticity. The reduced skin firmness and elasticity, loss of skin volume, and shrinking bones around the jaw, cheekbones, and brows, all lead to sagging skin and less defined facial features.

What Can People Do To Prevent Facial Aging?

A naturally aging face is not a concern. People prefer to delay their aging or get rid of aging signs when they show up prematurely or are not aesthetically appealing. 

One strategy to prevent or delay facial aging is to simply enjoy the present moment and appearance for what they are. The age-related changes in facial appearance reflect our lives’ joys and struggles. However, not everyone is comfortable with this, and some may prefer to postpone accepting those changes.

One technique to try to slow the passage of time is an age-defying facelift, which surgically removes unwanted tissue, adjusts facial muscles, and lifts a sagging face. Facelifts are very effective and their results now appear more natural. However, the surgery is costly and more surgeries may be required to achieve the desired results. Face lifting can be achieved in minimally invasive ways for people who do not wish to go under the knife. It can aid in the repositioning of skin on the face and the improvement of facial contour. One can get facelift treatment in Hyderabad at Eternelle Aesthetics and achieve a youthful look by targeting signs of aging on the face.

Most Effective Treatments For Facial Aging

There are various in-office anti-aging treatments in Hyderabad available at Eternelle Aesthetics to treat facial aging. Someone who is healthy and has mild to moderate sagging in their face is an excellent candidate for a non-surgical facelift. There are different options available for a non-surgical facelift like anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, autologous fat grafting, laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and microneedling. 

Most Popular Anti-aging Treatments in Hyderabad

1. Anti-wrinkle injections

There are two types of facial wrinkles: those induced by regular contractions of the muscles (dynamic lines) and those caused by the natural breakdown of facial tissues (static lines). Repeated facial muscle movements such as blinking, squinting, and frowning produce and aggravate fine lines and wrinkles in different areas of the face like around the eyes, forehead, and mouth corners. 

Anti-wrinkle injections like B-ot-ox and other neuromodulators can help treat dynamic lines such as crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. They work by blocking chemical signals between facial nerves and muscles that cause muscle contraction and, as a result, dynamic wrinkles. The blocking of the signals relaxes the muscles and smooths the skin lying above them. 

Static lines can be treated non-surgically with dermal fillers or fractional lasers.

2. Dermal fillers

Facial fat is lost over time as a result of aging and UV exposure. The loss of facial fat alters the contours of the face, contributing to a tired and worn-out appearance. Dermal fillers are used to fill in wrinkles caused by collagen and fat loss. Dermal filler injections are the most popular cosmetic procedure after botuli-num tox-in injections, especially to treat nasolabial folds and marionette lines. 

The most commonly used dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers. They can draw and retain moisture in the skin and help plump the cheeks and skin around the mouth. Their effect lasts for about 12 to 18 months. 

3. Anti-aging lotions and creams

Moisturisers hydrate dry skin and may temporarily reduce the visibility of wrinkles. Face moisturisers contain water to make them less oily, and many contain ingredients such as glycerin that may help hold water to the skin. Exfoliant creams can improve the appearance of aging skin by removing dead skin cells that don't slough off as easily as they used to.

Several prescription creams are there to minimise facial wrinkles and sun-induced liver spots on the face. These FDA-approved lotions contain retinoids, which are vitamin A-related substances that appear to act by increasing collagen formation in the dermis and reducing melanin, the pigment that causes liver spots.

4. Laser skin resurfacing

In this treatment, an intense beam of light is focused on the aging areas of the face. If an ablative laser device is used, the top affected skin layers are thermally damaged and peeled off to reveal new skin from underneath. In the case of non-ablative laser skin resurfacing, the light heats the skin dermis to boost collagen growth and help rejuvenate the affected skin without harming the surrounding healthy skin. Multiple laser sessions are required for the removal of aging signs.  

Benefits of Getting Non-surgical Facial Aging Treatment

  • One will notice a visible difference very soon after treatment.
  • Non-surgical facelifts are typically less expensive 
  • The procedures are much quicker and easier; most take less than an hour and require minimum downtime and aftercare.

For Optimal Results, One Can Opt for Facelift Surgery

Facelift surgery offers a range of benefits for people who are seeking to rejuvenate their appearance. The surgery effectively reverses the signs of aging as it targets wrinkles, removes sagging skin, and it also smoothes fine lines and helps one achieve a more youthful and refreshed look. 

This surgery also boosts an individual's confidence and self-esteem, enhancing their overall quality of life. The surgery also offers a long-lasting impact and helps one enjoy a revitalised appearance well into the future.
