Ageing is a multifactorial process caused by the accumulation of both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Gravity, changes in the our bone structure and fat distribution of our face as well as skin changes contribute to the ageing face. Extrinsic factors are environmental insult such as photodamage caused by UV exposure, and lifestyle factors including smoking, stress, diet, and drug use.
The loss of collagen and elasticity in the skin results in volume loss and the downward descent of the skin and underlying structures. In the upper face, this progresses to create a longer eyelid to cheek junction, lengthening the lower eyelid and formation of a tear trough. This cumulative process creates a more tired appearance of the face and eyes. The primary goal of rejuvenation around the eyes is to restore a balanced distribution of the face fullness while addressing the overlying skin.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers help augment soft tissue imbalances to restore volume, enhance facial contouring, and to hydrate the skin.
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive technique used to rejuvenate the skin using a series of microinjections containing various pharmaceuticals, vitamins and other bioactive substances to increase the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to firm, brighten, and hydrate the skin. The injury created by the microneedling also helps stimulate the bodies own healing response, also aiding in the stimulation of collagen and elastin formation.
Platelet-rich Plasma, known as PRP or the vampire face lift is a highly concentrated solution of plasma prepared from the patients own centrifuged blood. Platelets contain multiple growth factors that can help improve skin tone, texture and color.
I have created a new Triple Boost HydraBright eye rejuvenation treatment that uses a combination of hyaluronic acid, PRP and mesotherapy to create a brighter, voluminous and rejuvenated lower eyelid.
