Eternal Youth?

Facial rejuvenation has transformed from being a procedure that was reserved for the

elite, to  one that is accessible and affordable everybody. Once only possible by undergoing surgery, non-surgical methods have quickly gained traction and are now preferred over surgical treatments.

The onset of social media has spurred an increased demand in this

area over recent years, with even younger participants entering the field. In the past, only elderly men and women opted for these procedures to regain a youthful look, but now, I see more and more young adults, in their search for their own “perfect look”. 

Facial rejuvenation has metamorphosed from an era of static procedures (that looked

obviously “done”) to one that is more natural looking and dynamic. Surgical methods have

the disadvantage of being invasive in general, may need general anesthesia and also may need you to stay away from socializing for longer so that wounds can heal.

Non-surgical methods bypass this, and the best part is that they will not last your entire life (Imagine buying one pair of clothes and having to put them on forever!!!). This may also be a blessing in disguise, as it allows for repeated tweaking to achieve a an excellent, pleasing and natural result

over a period of time. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Botulinum toxin, Thread lifts and

Lipolysis are all extensively used non-surgical techniques for enhancing the face. The most

relied upon are botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid fillers due in part to their versatility and

excellent results. This is readily achievable through the twin benefits of volume repletion (think hollowing) and muscle relaxation (think wrinkles), hence allowing for a sculpting of facial contours.
