Aging is a natural process. The impact of time and our current lifestyle usually shows on our skin. But today, there is such a wide range of treatments available in the market, which can help you stay young and maintain that 20s look for longer period of time. These treatments are both surgical like chin fillers and non-surgical in nature and are administered depending on the need of the skin. Here are some of the non-surgical procedures that take off a couple years from your skin:
Botox – Botox or Botulinium Toxin Type A is a protein derived from bacteria is an injectable toxin. Botox is injected in the skin in minute quantities and it works by relaxing the muscles under the skin. There is a decrease in the pull force on the surface of the skin, thereby smoothing any wrinkles in that area. Results of botox last between 4-6 months, depending upon the patient’s age and skin condition. If the lines on the skin are deeper and there is a substantial loss of skin elasticity, then other procedures like a threadlift or thermage are more effective.
Juvederm – Juvederm is a gel that contains hyaluronic acid, which is a type of sugar that is naturally prepared by the body to give elasticity and volume to skin. Juvederm when used in gel form can easily penetrate the skin and helps in giving a smooth and natural look. The Juvenderm gel works by binding the collagen and elastin together and the results can last for more than six months. The procedure is better compared to others as further deterioration of skin is also minimized with Juvederm.
Restylane – Restylane is also gel that removes wrinkles and gives volume to the injected area. The gel is a mixture of hyaluronic acid and water and is a perfect remedy for wrinkles on the chin, cheek lips and smile lines. Results of this technique can last up to six months.
Thread lift – Thread lift works by pulling the skin from underneath using strings. The technique is not that similar to a face-lift since the results of a thread-lift can last for a couple of months after which the skin begins to droop again and tightening is needed.
Thermage – Treatment of skin using thermage results in the building of skin collagen and restoring those perfect contours. The thermage technique makes use of radio frequency called ThermaCool. These frequency sources heat the skin and naturally restore collagen. The entire procedure takes about four months and the results are slow and steady. Thermage procedures work well for removing wrinkles, particularly on the neck, jawline, chin and upper eyelids. The results of this technology can last for a longer duration, which makes it a costlier treatment compared to other counterparts.
There is an expert team of dermatologists who help their patients to identify which of these techniques best suits to their patients who plan to undertake chin fillers in Singapore.
