Usually in the 30s and 40s, the skin is not as youthful as it used to be in the 20's. The reason can be the normal process of aging, sun damage, or pollution or any other intrinsic or extrinsic factors.
What causes skin-aging?
According to Dr. Keerthana Kalva, best skin specialist in Hyderabad, there are various factors that can trigger skin aging. Intrinsic aging is an unavoidable physiological process that leads to gradual dermal atrophy, dry skin, and fine lines and wrinkles while extrinsic aging is caused by factors like smoking, air pollution, sun/UV exposure, and poor nutrition that can lead to wrinkles, laxity, loss of elasticity, and rough-textured appearance.
What are the treatment options available?
Dr. Keerthana Kalva, best anti-aging specialist in Hyderabad, provides various dermatological anti-aging treatments to reverse the signs of skin aging. This includes
1. MediFacials or Medical Facials
It is a highly customizable medical facial procedure that uses pharmaceutical-grade products to rejuvenate the skin and restore its lustre that has been lost due to aging. It encompasses the usage of potent serums such as antioxidants and hydroxy acids like glycolic acid or salicylic acid and lasers and light-based devices. The treatment works to address aging concerns by exfoliation, oxygenation, and nourishment of the skin. It helps to gently recover and improve skin tone as well as smoothen mild wrinkles and offers long-term results. This is a good option as a preventive treatment for signs of aging or when the person has just begun to see the changes in his/her skin.
It is a skin resurfacing, cosmetic procedure that targets the removal of the aged and damaged superficial skin layers to reveal new, refreshing, and young-looking skin and a glaring skin complexion. It is a simple, pain-free, and effective anti-aging treatment that can help treat age spots and fine lines. The procedure involves either the spraying or rubbing of fine abrasive crystals onto the skin and simultaneously using suction to eliminate the dead skin cells using crystal microdermabrasion or the use of a diamond-tipped wand that gently exfoliates the skin using diamond microdermabrasion.
3. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are also known as soft tissue fillers that can help restore lost volume and fill out the hollows. It is one of the most commonly performed anti-aging treatment in Hyderabad at Inform Clinics. It can treat several skin concerns including periorbital lines, laugh lines or nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and mildly sagging skin. Most preferred or standard fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid (a soft gel-like substance that is also naturally present in the human body). It helps in keeping the skin well-hydrated and making it look plumper and brighter because of its ability to bind water molecules present in the skin. However, hyaluronic fillers provide temporary results that last anywhere between 6 to 12 months. Other types of dermal fillers that can be used to fight aging include synthetic fillers that induce collagen production and provide results lasting up to 2 years or autologous fat injections to add volume to the skin and treat static wrinkles.
4. Anti-wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections can help smoothen dynamic wrinkles. They are composed of Bo-tu-li-num toxin (a neurotoxin derived from a bacterium, Clostridium Bo-tu-li-num) which works by temporarily disabling the hyperactive muscles responsible for wrinkle formation. This treatment can be carried out in areas such as forehead lines, bunny lines (scrunch lines on the nose), frown lines (between the eyebrows), and crow’s feet (around the eyes). It would not be an exaggeration to say that it is a very promising anti-wrinkle treatment in Hyderabad. On average, the effects of these injections can last between 4 and 6 months, and with maintenance sessions the results can last longer.
5. Dermaroller or Microneedling
This treatment uses a dermaroller device and is also popularly known as collagen induction therapy. It can help rejuvenate the skin, fade away the fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture and tone. Dermaroller is a medical-grade tool comprising multiple fine needles that are sterilized and used to create micro-injuries in the skin. As the skin gets wounded, this stimulates the natural healing response of the body to encourage the fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin fibers which make the skin smoother, firmer, and plumper.
6. Vampire Facelift
A vampire facelift is a combination treatment involving the use of P-R-P injections along with hyaluronic acid fillers. The procedure involves the drawing of the patient’s blood, separation of blood components by centrifugation, and then administering the separated plate-let-rich-pla-sma (P-R-P) into the aged skin with injections. This is followed by injecting hyaluronic acid fillers. The treatment encourages new collagen and elastin production which help enhance the skin texture and tone. It addresses facial aging concerns such as crow’s feet, frown lines, smile lines, and forehead wrinkles.
7. Non-surgical Facelift/ Thread Lift
Thread lift is a popular treatment for non-surgical facelift in Hyderabad that gives natural-looking youthful contours and enhances the skin texture of the face, cheeks, jawline, and neck areas. The treatment involves the placing of medical-grade absorbable threads inside the skin using a small needle and pulling them to achieve a subtle lift in the skin having mild to moderate skin laxity. In the areas where threads are placed, there is a boost in collagen production in response to skin injury. Although visible skin improvements can be seen instantly the changes persist till the collagen is produced.
This treatment uses a cocktail of essential vitamins, amino acids, coenzymes, antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid that when administered to the skin can help nourish it. This personalized treatment is designed to rejuvenate the skin by encouraging metabolism and collagen production as well as increasing hydration. It can help enhance dull, dehydrated, tired-looking, lifeless skin while managing to reduce superficial wrinkles.
