As the social-consciousness and attitude towards ageing continues to develop, so do advancements in facial rejuvenation treatments. This means that – while younger patients, who might be more aware of their early and mild signs of ageing – might not be suitable candidates for more invasive anti-ageing procedures, there are potential treatments that can help tackle some of the earlier lines, wrinkles and facial sagging that can develop in some individuals.

Facial ageing begins as early as the mid-twenties, although increased awareness and availability of effective over-the-counter solutions mean that this is sometimes set back to the late-twenties or early-thirties. However, by the time that patients reach the late-thirties they reach a dilemma. They are in no way ‘old’ and do not have ‘mature skin’ – nothing that would warrant very invasive surgery, whether they think this is the case or not. Often, patients do not become suitable candidates for facelift procedures until they are well into their forties.

An increased social awareness of the earlier signs of ageing could be the reason – in part – for the boom in the non-surgical aesthetics market. Indeed, there are several non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation that are ideal for patients in their thirties looking to combat the first signs of ageing. For these patients, more invasive surgery would not only be unnecessary, it would be pointless.  Patients of this age group looking into their facial rejuvenation options could potentially consider the following:

Botox

Botox – a form of muscle relaxing injection – ‘freezes’ the facial muscles to prevent overuse. This not only prevents further skin damage, but treats fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead area. Although this treatment once garnered a bad reputation for causing a ‘frozen’ look, in the right hands, the results are effective and natural looking. The results last around 3-4 months, but recent studies have shown that there are no negative health implications to repeat treatment sessions. Botox is most effective for frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet lines. It cannot be used for the lines around the mouth since this would affect mouth movement and smiling. However, in minute doses it can be used to minimise one or two fine lines on the upper lip although this needs to be administered very carefully.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers effectively volumise and plump out deep-set lines and wrinkles in the face. The results of fillers can last up to 18 months before top up treatments are required. Commonly dermal fillers are used for the deeper lines which include the nasolabial line that extends from the side of the nose to the corner of the lip. They are also used for marionette lines which extend from the corner of the mouth down to the jawline. And of course they are used for lip lines and lip augmentation. Another use is for the tear trough area below the eyes if this has hollowed out over time.

For patients who have a combination of fine and deep lines, it is possible to perform a combined treatment of Botox and dermal fillers in the upper third of the face. In fact, this is quite a popular treatment, not least because the dermal fillers tackle the more obvious signs of ageing, while Botox provides a (temporary but effective) barrier against the formation of further signs of ageing.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are incredibly versatile, and a consultation with a cosmetic professional will allow you to ascertain whether you are most suited to a light, medium or deep peel. The depth of the peel will affect the treatment, including the type of anaesthetic required, the necessary recovery and the level of results you can expect to see.

Chemical peels can address an array of facial complaints – fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, rosacea and acne scarring. But unlike cosmetic injectables, chemical peels are also capable of restoring the quality of the skin itself and improving the complexion. They’re therefore ideal for people who are suffering with a dulling complexion as a result of the ageing process, as well as visible lines and wrinkles.

If you are interested in any of the above treatments, you should book a consultation with an expert surgeon like Mr. Jag Chana. For a non-surgical treatment, you should ensure that you are visiting a cosmetic surgeon or a cosmetic doctor, both of whom are qualified to perform treatments of this nature. The advantage of seeing a plastic surgeon is that you will get an opinion which encompasses all the possibilities including the likelihood of future surgery if you are nearing this point. It also allows you to gain trust with your surgeon for the future when you may consider rejuvenative facelift surgery. Your Plastic surgeon will get to know you over the years in terms of appreciating how your face has aged and this helps to tailor the results of facelift surgery. If you are unsure of the right course of action for your specific needs, book a general consultation with a plastic surgeon, who will be happy to guide you in the right direction according to your requirements.
