Refining Aging Process — It’s inevitable, but can we slow it down?
Enhancing My Natural Beauty and refining ageing process. Yes, it can be done. As we age, it’s natural for our cheeks to start to sag and lose their elasticity. As they do, they can give us a jowly look that ages us. However, there are ways to reclaim our natural beauty. As we age the fat pads in our face start to lose their elasticity and naturally as we lose collagen in our skin – Sleeping on our sides can also naturally drag down our face on the side we sleep on. Although our skin sagging slightly is a natural occurrence there are many surprising things we are doing to make it worse.
What are Nasolabial folds?
Our Nasolabial folds are the two folds of skin that that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. As we age these may tend to deepen and grow in length, thus giving a more aged looked.
What other things can help with refining ageing process?
Smartphone face is a relatively new complaint! We spend a good proportion of our time looking down at our phones or keyboards particularly whilst working. The constant head tilt can lead to our chin to droop and skin to fall
Our diets higher in sugar and processed food
When we eat sugar the molecules begin to attack our protein fibres wearing them down! Nutrition is key to reducing the signs of ageing.
Too Much Sun
This is an obvious one. The sun’s harmful UV rays wear down the collagen in our skin and cause us to lose elasticity of our skin.
Using Dermal Filler to improve Cheek Sagging
Using Dermal Fillers to improve our nasolabial folds and to give our cheeks a lift is a simple and quick procedure. By injecting filler into the cheeks this pulls the lower part of our face up which reduces the sagging look. We are replacing the lost collagen in our cheeks which causes our nasolabial folds to fall giving us that ‘jowly look’. The filler used at Luxe Appearance are ones containing Hyaluronic Acid, HA is a naturally occurring substance in our body and this is a lot less harmful than what people think. Most of the fillers on the market today also contain Lidocaine, which helps to numb the area, therefore making the procedure much less painful. Injection of HA into the cheeks or nasolabial folds reduces the heaviness on our face which contributes to making us look older. At Luxe Appearance, we also use a topical numbing compound and ice to reduce any pain and swelling during and post procedure.
Other Treatments to Improve Nasolabial Folds
Although Dermal Fillers are the quickest and most efficient way of reducing heaviness other collage induction therapies can also show a great improvement.
With the Microneedling device, we can assist in inducing our bodies to produce more collagen in the skin – this will take a number of treatments and will result in a plump and stronger skin. Micro Needling also removes scarring or any marks on the treated area and can be used with PRP.
