Your face is one of the first places that can show signs of ageing as you get older. Sun damage and environmental factors play a big part and it’s important to have a good facial skincare routine to protect your skin as much as possible. But even with a good routine, wrinkles and sagging skin are inevitable due to the loss of collagen and elastin. At Samara medical and cosmetic clinics, we have a range of advanced procedures and treatments that can help slow the ageing process.
Wrinkles and lines
Wrinkles are an unavoidable and natural part of the ageing process. In our youth our skin retains its moisture and elasticity but as we age the dermis gradually loses collagen and elastin. Both play a primary role in helping our skin to stay young and vibrant. Eventually the skin begins to sag and, together with the repetitive movement of muscles, we develop wrinkles.
The common areas where lines are visible are at the corner of the eyes (crow’s feet), vertical lines between the brows (frown lines), and horizontal lines above the brows (forehead lines). Book a consultation with our clinical experts to discuss the treatments available to restore your skin’s elasticity and youthful glow.
Contouring and sculpting – Cheeks and Jowls
As the skin on our face begins to lose its elasticity, the cheeks and jowls begin to sag.
Cheeks are a major support for the face and when they begin to lose volume the structure of the face can change. Likewise, when jowls start to drop it can have a big impact on your appearance. The replacement of volume into these two areas can restore a more youthful look. Read more about the options available:
Lips – Dehydration, Discolouration and Lines
Full and shapely lips are often associated with the aesthetic quality of youth, sensuality and beauty. As we age, the usual culprits of collagen and elastin can play havoc with the shape, colour and lines around the mouth. Perfect lips are clearly defined, have adequate volume and are free from lines. There are several treatments available for ageing lips, so book a consultation to find out your options.
Have you heard the myth that the nose keeps growing as you age? It’s simply not true, but it can change shape, once again, due to lower levels of collagen and elastin. The nose plays an important role in the aesthetics of the face, so you may not be happy with the changes. You may even have a redness to the nose, which is usually related to rosacea or other pigmentation issues.
Surgical corrections involve general anaesthetic and protracted recovery times. Non-surgical rhinoplasty, performed by highly skilled professionals at Samara Aesthetics, is an alternative that can provide long-term results.
Under Eye ‘Dark Circles’ and ‘Bags’
It’s a common sight – and many people suffer with ‘bags’ under the eyes. Saggy skin and fluid accumulation can make the under eye appear darker, swollen or puffy. As you age, the muscles and tissue structures that support the eyelids gradually weaken, but there are several treatments that can successfully reduce the dark circles that leave you looking tired and worn out. Don’t just settle for ‘bags’ under your eyes, book a consultation and discover safe and efficient ways to look years younger.
They say ‘the eyes are the window to your soul’ but with drooping eyelids your eyes appear much smaller than they are – not much of a window! When the tissue loosens in the lids they start to ‘hood’ over the eyes and can even impair vision. However, Samara medical and cosmetic clinics have suitable non-surgical options to consider.
The descent of the brows is one of the first signs of ageing, as we tend to lose projection and height, as well as shape due to sagging skin and loosening of the muscles. Brow lifting can bring back a more youthful appearance to the upper third of the face. Book a consultation to discuss how a brow lift can enhance your features, as well as renew your confidence.
Teeth Grinding / Jaw Slimming
Teeth Grinding is often a serious medical condition that can lead to chronic headaches and migraines. From an aesthetic viewpoint, it can also cause a widening of the lower jaw. Chat with our professional and experienced staff and discover the therapeutic effects of this procedure, which often brings immediate and long-lasting relief.
Fat Injection / Double chin
Over time, pockets of fat can develop in unwanted areas of the face to produce an unsightly appearance. These procedures are effective in removing fat from around the lower face and jowls, as well as remove or increase the fat in the cheeks and under the chin, as required. Don’t suffer with a double chin – these simple treatments can make a huge difference to the aesthetics of your face.
Facial Lifting & Tightening
These were once ‘scary’ words, but these days non-surgical, in-chair procedures are available to provide facelifting and tightening. These treatments have the ability to stimulate your body’s natural ability to manufacture collagen, which as we know, depletes as you age. The results are therefore natural and can last a number of years.
Loose Skin / Tissue Laxity
Ageing is associated with the loss of elasticity that comes with time and sun damage. The face takes on a ‘droopy’ look and can even make you look tired or older than you are. The best way to re-invigorate tired skin is to stimulate the production of collagen.
A dull appearance to the face often triggers the question, ‘Is everything alright?’ Without a healthy and youthful glow others often assume we are tired or unwell. The appearance of brighter and vibrant skin brings with it a natural energy and vitality, which you can achieve with a variety of simple and effective procedures.
