New Delhi, April 18,2014 - Dr. Indu Ballani, Dermatologist,
Age might just be a number but this number is directly proportional to the number of lines and wrinkles appearing on your face. The search for the elusive elixir of youth has continued for centuries. In every civilization, in every society, the quest to keep looking young is common. There is not a single soul in this world who wouldn’t desire to look eternally beautiful. But, while it may not be possible to prevent ageing, slowing down the process of ageing to look stunning and young for a longer time is very much possible today. At 45, you may not be able to look 21, but you can certainly look 35 with the help of new age cosmetic procedures.

Technology in the modern times has given us our own ‘elixirs’ that can ensure the fountains of youth and beauty flow unabated. The new age anti-ageing procedures not only target the signs of ageing on the surface of the skin, but work at a deeper level, unknotting the science of ageing and working at the reasons that cause skin to age.

Here are 10 nip and tuck modern day cosmetic procedures that can keep you looking young:

Botox away the frown lines

The frown lines on our forehead that give us a tired, stressed out and aged look can be taken care of by Botox wonderfully. Botulinum toxin, popularly known as Botox, is a non-surgical procedure wherein botox is injected to relax the muscles of the face thus smoothening an otherwise tired and aged looking face.

When a small amount of it is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve signals telling that particular muscle to contract. When administered into the muscles of the forehead, Botox relaxes them and stops the process of frowning, leaving a clear, stress-free forehead. Botox can be also used to get a ‘browlift’. The procedure that takes a few minutes gives your eyebrows a highlighted or ‘arched’ appearance and leaves the upper part of your face with reduced wrinkles.

Nobody wants those crow’s feet

Years of laughing and smiling inadvertently leave us with a bunch of fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes, often referred to as the crow’s feet. Botox and dermal fillers like Juvederm can reduce their appearances, cutting down the years on your life’s slate.

Crow's feet are caused by repeated muscle contractions over a lifetime. These are dynamic lines that become entrenched over the years. By blocking the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract, Botox prevents the contraction and the resultant wrinkles.

A Nefertiti neck

Another feature of ageing is the sagging skin under the chin and on the neck. Even if you have kept your face looking gleaming and beautiful, your neck will certainly give away your age. The skin around the neck is particularly prone to the wear and tear of aging because it's thinner than facial skin and has different collagen content.

To help minimize the changes you are experiencing, the Botox Nefertiti Neck Lift provides a unique method in relaxing the underlying muscles by administering Botox injections along carefully selected specific points of the lower jaw line. This results in an upward movement of the skin to minimize sagging jowls and leave a more defined bone structure, neck and facial contour. Injections into the vertical bands of the neck further reduces the downward pull on the jowl area and side of the face and produces a much smoother appearance to the neck.

Using Botox, the sagging can be reduced by reducing the downward pull of the muscles. The neck lift will allow you wear off shoulder dresses too.

Say goodbye to hollow eyes

Eyes never lie. They will betray your age candidly. As we age, we often develop dark hollows and troughs under our eyes which make us appear weary and aged. Sunken or hollow eyes can make you look dull and tired even though you are

young and healthy. The area between the eyes and nose also known as tear trough looks hollow and sunken due to loss of moisture and volume, thus making the face look tired. This can be corrected with the help of fillers like Juvederm that fill up the hollows around the eyes and leave you with healthy eyes and a fresh looking face.

Tighten the pores on your face

If the pores on your face turn large, they will not give a very congenial appearance. There are laser therapies that help tighten the facial pores .

Filling up the smile lines

Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth become prominent when you smile or laugh out. They are also known as marionette lines that originate from the sides of your lips and stretch right down to the chin. Over the years they become a permanent fixture on the face, taking away the youthful sheen and appearance. But with dermal fillers like Juvederm, the depressions caused by these lines and wrinkles can be filled and give you a clean winkle free smile.

Rev up the skin with exfoliation

The dullness and lack of sheen of the skin is often because the dead cells are clouding the surface. Some good exfoliating treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels can remove the dead layer and bring back a youthful glow. Diamond Polishing is another technique in which the skin is polished with diamonds fixed on tips that electronically move on the skin. This is useful in removing dead cells, scars, tanning and overall improves glow and complexion of the skin.

Mesobotox for face: This is onewonderful facial rejuvenation method in which Botox is delivered through microinjections in very small doses distributed all over the face to diminish fine wrinkles and give you a ‘facelift’. It helps tighten the facial pores and give you a more smooth and radiant appearance.

Volume to the cheeks: Withage we lose much of our skin flexibility, collagen and volume resulting in flat sagging cheeks. Hyaluronic acid based fillers can give fresh volume and contours to the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that exists in the layers of the skin and gives it volume and elasticity. With age, we tend to lose our natural reserves of hyaluronic acid and fillers help replenish this lost reserve.

What about hands?

While we do everything to keep our faces bright and shining, our hands get step motherly treatment. No wonder, they belie our age more than anything. Dermal fillers like Juvederm can also be used to give volume to hands, remove wrinkles and make them look bright. CCI Newswire
