Ageing as a concept can scare a lot of people out of their wits. While the very word can put people in a lot of misery, there are a lot of things which can be considered with respect to ageing. As technology advances, the cosmetic industry has also turned over a new leaf to deal with effects of ageing on skin.
With age the skin begins to give way to fine lines, decrease in glow and appearance of wrinkles. While this might seem inevitable, we would all still wish to have a cup from fountain of youth. If you wish to get rid of wrinkly, sagging skin, then it is time to take matters into your own hands, literally.
As the name suggests, biological ageing is majorly determined by our genes. As we age over the years, our body’s regenerative abilities slow down and give way to ageing. Since the body is largely governed by hormones, there are a lot of changes which are irreversible. Some might work in your skin’s favor, while others might just work in the opposite direction.
When we are dealing with stress, repeated behavior like squinting, frowning, etc. can cause grooves in the skin, which become engraved over the years. Imagine the damage you might be doing to your skin unknowingly.
We live in an environment which is rich with pollution and dust particles. Apart from the pollution and environmental pollutants, there are a lot of extrinsic factors which can also cause your skin to age eventually. These factors include, but are not limited to, sunlight, harsh weather, stress etc, which are equal contributors to the skin’s ageing factors.
As per studies, exposure to UV rays can cause the skin to age extensively, which means, that there are a lot of adverse effects to consider. Sun damage is the most drastic os the causes to skin damage. While medical conditions like cancer are just one side effect of this exposure, skin ageing is yet another issue which is of prime importance. The process of ageing by exposure to the sun is known as Photoageing. Photoageing, as a process, can damage collagen, melanocytes, elastin, and can act as a moisture barrier. This leads to pigmentation of the skin, spotting, uneven skin tones, etc.
Due to frequent usage of muscles while expressing certain emotions, we may frown squint or raising eyebrows that can in turn cause permanent creases on the face. Botox is a non surgical method to temporarily reduce fine line and wrinkles from around the eyes, forehead and mouth. It is no more a procedure meant to be used only by celebrities but it is being readily chosen by men and women to improve their looks. It softens the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the overactive muscles lying underneath.
Derived from naturally occurring botulinum toxin-A, it is injected directly in the muscles responsible for lines to allow the skin to appear smoother for 4-6 months. Done with very fine insulin syringes, the pain is usually described to be similar to that of an ant bite. It is a lunch time procedure and does not have any downtime. One can go back to their normal schedules and routines right after undergoing a botox treatment. It takes 2-3 days for the full effects of the treatment to be visible in the form of stretched smooth skin. It shows its effects gradually and and similarly fades away gradually within 4-6 months. Since the effects of the procedure are temporary in nature, one can control the outcomes and manifestation of the results.
It is imperative that you choose your surgeon carefully because botox is a procedure that is technique sensitive. Only a doctor who has been trained in the practice should be chosen to deliver an expertise as delicate as botox.
If there should arise an occurrence of the MesoBotox treatment, little amounts of greatly weakened Botox is infused into the layers of the skin, keeping in mind the desired results. Unique Meso needles are utilized in this procedure, and the substance is infused into the skin. It can be utilized to treat the open pores, almost negligible differences, or notwithstanding wrinkling of skin as a result of maturing. Once the MesoBotox is given, the oil generation and sweat generation ability of skin is reduced, which makes the skin to look glossy.
Along with genetics and environmental changes, ageing process brings about a lot of changes to your skin and face. The most prominent change that you begin to notice in the form of wrinkles and lines. Apparent volume loss from face causing flattening of cheeks and sagging of skin is another of age related change. Although there is a plethora of anti ageing solutions, fillers have recently gained ground among non invasive treatment to fulfill volumetric loss in the face. Fillers can help combat the three dimensional volumetric loss by producing subtle natural looking changes. Although there are various permanent and semi-permanent fillers available but hyaluronic acid fillers are the most hardworking of them as it produces subtle hydration, lift and smoothening of wrinkles.
The longevity or efficacy duration of fillers vary widely across products and can often prove to last longer than promised because of the varying viscosity and molecular weight of the product. The common indications for using fillers are deep wrinkles like nasolabial folds, lip enhancement, facial deformities, making apple cheeks, depressed scars, periocular melanoses, earlobes plumping, hand, neck, divolleti rejuvenation.
We all see how appearance has gained so much popularity in recent times because it is visible in self esteem and quality of life. Among the various invasive and non-invasive ways low level lasers are used for aesthetic rejuvenation of skin, radio frequency lasers are being used for non-ablative rejuvenation of skin. It helps counter effects of ageing on the skin by inducing formation of collagen in the layers of the skin rather than breaking it down. It helps restore shape, brings lift and in turn smoothening the fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin laxity.
Depending on the desired results, it can take multiple sessions to see visible difference. During the process the thin layers below the skin that hold fat and are targeted with radio frequency and that produces heat. The production of heat helps reshape fat and induce collagen production. The treatment can take place in 30 minutes, has no down time and one can return to their normal day to day routine afterwards.
You may observe slight redness in the treated region for 2-3 hours, which will dissipate by itself. Post-treatment reactions differ from individual to individual, and if there is something that concerns you, please consult your dermatologist. At Je Amour, we try and understand your needs and suggest a wholesome solution rather than just targeted treatments.
In recent times, we have found ever increasing demand to improve conditions of the skin by inducing resurfacing, minimum downtime and effective long lasting results. Lasers prove to be extremely efficient in improving appearance of skin by causing ablation in the top layer of the skin. This proves helpful in treating indictions like acne scars, pigmentation, and discoloration. Fractional CO2 helps resurfacing of the new skin by ablating the top layer of skin and allowing formation of newer skin that is milder smoother and fresher.
Depending on the indication being treated, it can take multiple sessions to get desired results. Its is extremely crucial to protect skin after a CO2 laser procedure and allow skin to form scabs and peel off by itself.
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new cosmetic treatment for skin tightening that some consider a noninvasive and painless replacement for face lifts. It uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin. HIFU is most widely known for its use in treating tumors. The first reported use of HIFU for aesthetic use was in 2008 Trusted Source. More evidence will be needed to find out who is best suited for this type of procedure. So far, HIFU has been found to be a promising treatment that could replace face lifts, especially in younger people who don’t want the risks and recovery time associated with surgery. HIFU won’t work as well for people with more severe cases of sagging skin.
HIFU was then approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009 for brow lifts. The device was also cleared by the FDA in 2014 to improve lines and wrinkles of the upper chest and neckline (décolletage). Several small clinical trials have found HIFU to be safe and effective for facial lifting and refining wrinkles. People were able to see results in a few months after treatment, without the risks associated with surgery. While the procedure is also used for overall facial rejuvenation, lifting, tightening, and body contouring, these are considered “off-label” uses for HIFU, meaning the FDA has yet to approve HIFU for these purposes.

A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body's "healing response" and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.
Collagen helps support "growth factors" that greatly influences the condition of our skin. In addition to being used for wound healing, collagen helps to keep our skin strong, voluminous and supple. As we get older, our bodies gradually produce less and less collagen, which leads to an 80% reduction in skin thickness by about age 70. This loss of volume and strength is a large factor in the creation of excess skin and wrinkles. As the skin grows weaker, it's no longer able to support the tissues beneath it adequately, meaning that gravity pulls it downwards and stretches it. Infusing the skin of the face with fresh collagen when the signs of skin laxity are still mild can help to both reduce looseness (by thickening and hydrating the skin) and prevent it from getting worse (by strengthening the skin).
In other words, this process provides ongoing and progressive rejuvenation for the facial tissues. Patients who have a thread lift for the purpose of stimulating collagen will notice a gradual improvement in their skin's tone and firmness. While their threads are in place, the body's healing response will be constantly activated because the body will want to "heal" the sutured areas and expel the sutures. The body is biologically programmed to react this way when it senses any foreign object present within the dermis. Fortunately, because the threads placed under the skin during a thread lift are so small, the patient will not feel any of this happening. Most people cannot feel their sutures at all once the skin has healed around them.
Being one of the new entrants in the market, RF Microneedling has rapidly made a name for itself in the cosmetic industry. It uses the body’s natural healing capabilities to produce the much desired results of a flawless, younger looking skin tone. Once you combine the concept of microneedling with radio frequencies, the process of skin rejuvenation becomes all the more effective and profound.
The working procedures behind RF microneedling are quite simple, meticulous and effective at the same time. Through microneedling, small proliferations are made on the skin, and the body repairs these micro injuries by producing collagen. The new collagen further helps in reducing the pore sizes, and reduces the fine lines, thereby giving way to smoother, fairer skin.
Once the microneedles have created the perforations on the skin’s surface, the radio frequency causes a wave of energy below the skin, which is known as thermolysis. Thermolysis is a type of thermal damage, which stimulates new collagen production. This way, during the skin’s natural repair process, the old skin is replaced with a new skin layer.
