Have you ever wondered how the celebrities, especially the ones over the age of 50, still look so ravishingly young and beautiful? Aging affects their skin as well. But their glamorous lives call for quick, safe and maintenance free methods to tackle aging factors, like loose skin and wrinkles. However, the secret to their beauty is no longer a secret!

Non surgical methods for facial rejuvenation have gained popularity amongst a certain age group, who certainly do not wish to witness their youthful looks fade away. Be it a sharper jawline or a wrinkle free face, the concept of anti aging has been on the rise ever since the non surgical revolution. And why not? Never before has looking younger been such a comfortable and affordable process with stunning results! The following are some non surgical techniques that give remarkable results when it comes to facial rejuvenation:

1. Anti wrinkle injections:

As the body ages, its skin becomes less elastic and lines become entrenched. These lines on the face are often undesirable. Muscle relaxant treatments are a simple, effective non-surgical treatment that can greatly reduce and even halt these visible, tell-tale signs of aging.

The use of muscles for various facial expressions, leads to the development of facial lines, frown lines or crow’s feet, that give an angry, worried or tired appearance. Correct administration of anti wrinkle injections of botulinum muscle relaxants can relax these muscles and give you a relaxed and younger look for up to 4 months.

2. Dermal fillers:

Another aging sign, is the reduction in the skin’s ability to generate collagen and hyaluronic. Hyaluronic acid is the skin’s natural hydrating substance. The subsequent loss of structure, gives a tired and older appearance.

This treatment uses small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid, to give shape and volume to the face and restore skin. Adequate administration doses of dermal fillers restores the volume of the treated area and hydrates it. You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face: around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, lips, and jawline.

3. Collagen Induction Treatments (CIT)

Collagen induction refers to skin treatments that stimulate the fibroblasts in dermis of the skin to produce collagen and elastin. As the body matures, the activity of fibroblast cells diminishes. The resulting reduction of collagen and elastin, vital skin structural components, results in a less elastic, less radiant skin. Your skin can be treated anywhere on your body, from hard to treat areas such as around the eyes/eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips, nose to larger surface areas such as neck and décolletage, stomach, breasts and legs for stretch mark treatment.

  • Factor4:

FACTOR4 or Autologous Anti-aging Serum is highly concentrated and super-rich blood plasma containing growth factors. A factor4 treatment is actually a catalyzer that naturally stimulates the body’s collagen benefitting the skin’s elasticity. Thus, it significantly slows down the process of aging, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and improves the skin’s texture.

The serum is derived from the patient’s own blood. The blood sample is collected and placed in a specialised incubator. After 6 hours, the RBCs are separated and the highly concentrated plasma is transferred to the syringes.The end-product is your own personalised super-rich Factor4 serum, a highly-concentrated formulation of your own growth factor and cytokines.

  • Fractional CO2 Laser:

Laser microbeams penetrate through the skin and cause heating effects. This triggers the body’s natural healing mechanism which produces elastin and collagen in the treated areas. A natural looking, and long lasting result.

Fractional CO2 laser is used to treat stretch marks, acne scars, sun damaged skin, surgical scars, fine lines and wrinkles, etc. It takes almost 12 weeks for the results to fully appear.

  • Fractional RF Needling:

A combination of two methods- micro needling and radio frequency, this treatment is effective in improvement of scars, acne and wrinkles, both on and off the face. The specialized needles, whilst in your skin’s dermis, deliver a dose of radio frequency to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production. It has proven to be promising in terms of result and recovery time. The computer treatment programs, based on clinical trials, provide precise treatments based on its ability to control the intensity of the energy, the depth of delivery, and the pulse duration.

  • Platelet Rich Plasma:

Ageing effects are primarily seen due to decrease in the count of fibro-blasts and collagen within the skin. Platelet Rich Plasma uses the natural healing properties of your own platelets (taken from a small sample of your blood), to stimulate cellular rejuvenation within your skin and improve the skin’s texture, plumpness and luminosity.

  • Dermal Needling:

Dermal needling is a treatment using micro fine needles that perforate the capillary network creating a cascade of growth factors. This leads to collagen deposition, thickening the skin, tightening of pores, fine lines and wrinkles.

4. LED Light Therapy:

However surprising it may sound, the SMARTLUX LED Light has proven to be highly effective while treating sun damage, acne, pigmentation, redness and rosacea, as well as anyone looking to restore the skin’s radiance. This non thermal LED light energy triggers your body’s natural cell processes to safely stimulate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It improves the blood flow and reduces collagenase to achieve a healthy and rejuvenated skin.

Different colors of light have different wavelengths that in turn have a variable penetration of depth into the dermis. Therefore, the coloured light used depends on the treatment to be done. Combinations can be used in a single treatment.

5. MINT Mono Threads:

For people in the age of 30-50, aging effects start to show. This is the time when people observe their skin getting loose and saggy. Thread lift is a non surgical procedure of inserting MINT Mono threads into the treatment area firming the area. More suited for mild to moderate skin laxity. These threads gradually get absorbed by the skin through the process of hydrolysis. Meanwhile, the natural healing mechanism of the body is triggered and this produces collagen in the treated area resulting in tighter and younger looking skin. The treated area can be neck lines, cheeks, under eye, etc.

6. ULFIT:

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU): Working on the body’s natural regenerative process, this is a non surgical and non invasive face-lifting technology. It rejuvenates three depths of the skin’s infrastructure using highly sophisticated micro-focused ultrasound energy. The SMAS, a layer on the muscle beneath the skin is tightened by the powerful, micro-focused high intensity ultrasound waves, helping to lift the jawline and jowls. More suited for mild to moderate skin laxity.

The areas that can be targeted are under chin and jawline, brows and around the eyes. It is also used to treat wrinkles and lax skin.

7. IPL Skin Rejuvenation:

The Intense Pulsed Light, more commonly abbreviated as IPL, is a skin treatment that uses various wavelengths of pulsed light to treat skin conditions and the effects of sun damage photo ageing such as pigmentation, red veins and elastosis. Light is absorbed into the targeted cells, destroying them and initiating the body’s healing response by creating new cells.
