The aging process has an effect on every part of our face – from skin right down to the bone.
At the skin level, damage caused by sun exposure is the most common concern. Living in sunny Perth, it is inevitable that these changes become more prominent with age. The most obvious signs of sun damage include pigmentation, visible redness and vessels as well as textural changes in the skin. Sun exposure can break down collagen and elastin in the skin which can lead to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or an overall ‘crepey’ appearance of the skin.
Sadly, it doesn’t stop there. With the normal aging process, the once plump compartments of fat in our face (called fat pads) regress and descend down, which leads to under-eye hollowness (tear trough deformity), deepening of smile lines (nasolabial folds), sagging and the appearance of jowls. A youthful face appears as an inverted triangle with more fullness in the cheeks and pointier chin.
With the aging process, the fat pads shrink and descend down. We lose the facial bony scaffolding, our face begins to look more ‘bottom heavy’ or square and our once plump cheeks appear flatter. We also lose our facial bony architecture which acts as scaffolding for our facial tissues. The ideal inverted triangular face begins to appear more like an upright triangle.
However, when you stop and think about it – aging should really be celebrated! Aging gracefully and confidently is possible by the careful use of customised aesthetic treatments. Given that the aging process affects every layer of our face from skin down to the fat pads, muscles and bone, it makes sense that the best results are achieved when all these layers are appropriately addressed in achieving a natural looking full-face makeover.
We are the specialists in facial restoration, facial design and full-face makeovers. We don’t simply chase lines – we specialise in beautifying the face. We routinely combine advanced skin treatments such as Medical Grade Skin Needling (Dermapen), with light-based treatments such as Broad Band Light (BBL™) Forever Young or Halo PRO Laser treatment. By adding in a selective combination of medical cosmetic treatments such as wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, collagen biostimulators, thread lifts and/or skinboosters, we can achieve fresher and a more confident you.
