As we age, our skin starts showing the visible changes that are brought by certain external and internal factors. The expert dermatologist at Aakrithi Skin & Hair Clinic offers various FDA approved anti-aging treatments that help to minimize and delay the signs of aging.
Botox is one of the most effective and safe non-surgical treatments that are available to reduce wrinkles in a pain-free manner. The treatment includes diluted injections of Botulinum Toxin that is used to relax the muscle activity which results in the reduction of wrinkles. Botox injections are mainly given on the areas like eye areas, crows feet, forehead (frown lines), and corners of the mouth. Besides that, it is also used for improving aging of neck, square faces and chin. With the help of Botox, the neck can be tightened, eyebrow shape can be changed and the jawline can be softened to get the oval appearance back.
Once injected, the nerve signals get blocked by Botox which helps in regulating the movement of muscle, thereby, making the treated area relaxed and giving a younger look. The procedure is mainly pain-free and tolerable but a topical numbing cream is used to make the patient feel no adverse sensation and get less discomfort. Botox usually takes a couple of minutes without any downtime or side effects. The effect of Botox injections lasts from 3-4 months.
With the increasing age, the shape of the face changes to a square face due to loss of volume. With the help of Derma Fillers, the symmetry and contouring of the face can be improved by adding fillers to specific magic points on the face. Dermal Fillers are gel-like substances that contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, which helps in adding volume to the surface of the skin, smoothing out folds and fine lines. These fillers are completely safe for use as the products are FDA approved. Dermal Fillers are injected under the skin to smooth out facial creases, restore facial volume and enhance the lips. They are mainly used on the areas like nose, lips, chin, cheekbones, and enhancement of overall facial contouring.
As we age, the Hyaluronic Acid tends to decrease in our body and as a result, our lips start losing volume and appear to be thinner. Lip Fillers are used to enhancing the shape of lips and providing plumper and natural appearance. With Dermal Fillers, very natural looking results can be achieved for the face as Hyaluronic Acid attracts and holds water which improves skin quality and facial volume. Dermal Fillers help to reduce the signs of aging and provides contour to the face.
Thread Lift is a type of facelift that is performed to give radiant and youthful skin. In this procedure, a bio-absorbable cone thread is used to tighten and rejuvenate the sagging skin on cheeks and the neck along with tightening of jaws by placing it under the skin surface, resulting in a more balanced and youthful look. A tiny notch is made behind the hairline or ear and then the threads are used along pre-marked contours. The non-surgical procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is proven to be effective for reducing wrinkles and creating a firm skin with more contoured facial appearance.
A thread lift is a type of age lift treatment that is performed to tighten the sagging skin in the jawline, eyebrows, and cheek by threading a web into the skin under the soft tissues. Thread lift enhances the skin immune system, reduces wrinkles and helps in the formation of collagen and elastin.
