What’s betraying your age

| May 5, 2022

A pleasing facial aesthetic is a major focus of medical aesthetic treatments. Favourites like Chemical Peels, Dermal Fillers, and Botulin Toxin are classic go-to staples for good reason. While it is easy to understand why one’s facial complexion often receives the lion’s share of aesthetic attention; it is important to remember that the face is not the sole area that can betray one’s age.

A Beautiful Balance

The best and most meticulous lip, wrinkle, and homecare applications and care can fall flat if there are other areas where the signs of ageing can be seen. Focussed attention to the neck, décolletage, and/or hands can bring a beautiful balance to the whole.

Here is what Dr Clark advises to add in with your existing treatment protocols for a natural all-around aesthetic congruency.

Neck Rejuvenation

The appearance of the neck region is crucial to a harmonious aesthetic. After all, it is directly positioned in exceeding proximity to the face/complexion. Furthermore, the practical difficulties in hiding or disguising the neck make it worthwhile to tend to unwanted signs of ageing such as sagging skin, wrinkles, and poorly textured skin.

Effective non-surgical aesthetic treatments entail minimal risks yet offer clinically proven results. For successful Neck Rejuvenation without any incisions; Dr Clark recommends the considered use of Non-Ablative Laser.

How it works:  SAI’s world class laser platform is powerful yet gentle with inbuilt cooling technology alongside a Skintel Melanin Reader. This ensures accurate results while maintaining utmost Client-comfort. By controlling peak power, wavelength, pulse, and penetration depth; light is used to regenerate dermal structures, improving dermal laxity by tightening loose skin. Through stimulation of internal skin matrix structures, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed. Discolouration, blemishes, scars, and the appearance of certain veins can also be targeted for elimination. Treatment is simple and hassle-free with a minimum of discomfort. It is performed safely, with full FDA approval, in our Sandton suites and requires no scheduled downtime.

Hand Rejuvenation

The skin located on the back of our hands often takes the brunt of damaging environmental factors; from harsh sunrays to cleaning detergents and potent sanitizers. These strip the skin of moisture and affect the surface appearance. Even when extra precaution is taken to protect this region; the natural ageing process robs us of volume here – often resulting in a skeletal and crêpey appearance. To restore this area Dr Clark can use a double treatment technique that relies on all natural HA.

First, micro-droplets of HA, which plump the skin from the inside out via the effects of deep inner hydration, are employed. Next HA in larger molecule form is used.  While the mechanism of action for all HA relies on its properties of drawing and retaining water molecules; different droplet sizes create varying effects. When HA is injected into the hands, it makes volume in the ‘valley’s’ that age creates. It eradicates the bony appearance for a softer and more youthful shape. This approach is considered safe and low-risk. An individual’s sense of touch and functionality remain unaffected and results can last six months and beyond.

Décolletage Rejuvenation

South African women enjoy time in the sun, sometimes to the detriment of the décolletage and chest areas. Summer dresses, low-cut fashions, and swimming costumes can all expose this sensitive area to unhealthy doses of UV which then results in photo-damage. The décolletage has very thin skin; thus it easily reflects the effects of accelerated damage. The good news is that it responds well to targeted treatment. Unwanted ageing is best dealt with through individually formulated gentle to moderate chemical peels and microdroplet HA treatment. These will reverse issues caused by sun exposure such as sunspots, hyperpigmentation, rough skin, skin laxity, wrinkles and fine lines while working to restore moisture levels thus smoothing skin. After which one can actively protect skin with a professional skin-type-suitable SPF product safe for this area’s thin skin.
