LIQUID FACE LIFT
What happens when we Age?
Skin loses its elasticity and thins out. Wrinkles become more obvious and skin appears more saggy.
Facial fat pads undergo atrophy (shrinks) and shifts downwards. They lose volume giving rise to sunken/hollowness and appear to accumulate at the nasolabial fold and Marionette areas resulting in deeper smile lines.
Bone undergoes resorption in certain areas, resulting in a loss of support for the upper layers of facial muscles, fat, and skin. This contributes to volume loss and sagginess.
Retaining ligaments of the face, which attach overlying fat and skin tautly to the bone, become loose and stretched resulting in worsening tissue droop.
Active and Healthy Lifestyle is very Important
Cliché as it sounds, eat healthily, exercise plenty, lots of water. Laugh more, frown less, do what makes you happy! Good stress management and a healthy lifestyle goes a long way. Active and healthy people have a natural radiance and glow that gives them an attractive and youthful look!
Personally, I like to spend time outdoors and in the nature during my free time. It makes me happy to be surrounded by mountains or just lying on a beautiful beach. I try to take a break from work every 3-4 months. It helps me recharge and keeps me motivated. Travelling is a big part of my life and I like to go off the beaten path for adventures! Here are some photos from my recent travels to Eastern Europe and the Caucasus
What are some of the ways to combat Ageing?
Ageing is a dynamic process that affects every layer of the face from the bone all the way to the surface of the skin. One of the most common phenomena we see is what we termed “volume loss” and this is why a Liquid Face Lift will always be an essential part of effective anti-ageing treatments to result in a natural and more youthful appearance. Let us go into the details.
