Skin aging starts as early as 30 years of age. To minimise the aging changes, one must follow good sun protection, healthy diet, regular exercise and avoidance of alcohol and smoking. The tightness and texture of the skin can also be maintained by regular maintenance procedures. Radiofrequency skin tightening, serum infusions, growth factor injections, ultrasonic tightening are some of the commonly performed tightening procedures.
These brightening and tightening procedures cause mild exfoliation of superficial dead skin layer, collagen stimulation, deliver concentrated oxygen and increased blood supply to the skin. Thus, the metabolic toxins accumulated in the skin layers are removed. This is followed by application of skin brightening serums on the face and helping its movement through the skin to its deeper layers with a mesoporation. These serums are cocktails of vitamins, micronutrients, amino acids and antioxidants and the end result is a rejuvenated and smooth look with reduction in the fine lines and open pores. This procedure can be repeated every 4-6 weeks as your skin care maintenance.
Hyaluronic acid injections, platelet rich plasma injections are also skin lift procedures with good improvement in skin texture, fine lines, skin turgor. These injections are given with microneedles under topical numbing cream and cause minimal or no discomfort. They give hydrated look to the skin, cause collagen stimulation over next 2-3 weeks giving firmer appearance. They can be repeated every 4-6 weeks.
