Facial rejuvenation for ageless beauty : a boon for Middle-aged Women

What is the biggest fear that haunts every ageing woman? Losing her beauty with age? Thankfully there are techniques available today which can help free every woman of such fears!

Every woman believes she is beautiful. Come to think of it, every woman certainly is beautiful, in her own special way. Who does not desire ageless beauty? Fortunately enough, there are beauty treatments available in the market today that offer not just this but much more. In the past the concept of facial rejuvenation was dominated by invasive surgical procedures, in particular different techniques of partial and full face lift. Nowadays there is a clear tendency for less invasive procedures which are quicker and simpler and that do not divert patients from their daily routine and activities for prolonged periods. They can provide effective, safe, relatively long-lasting, and natural results. Facial rejuvenation is a significant process involved in restoring youthfulness. The introduction of less invasive procedures has increased acceptance of such procedures. Often a combination of different techniques allows individualized treatment with optimal outcomes. Furthermore, this leads to a natural look without a significant downtime.

A recent study formulates the use of such a combined approach in middle-aged women with particular emphasis on dermal fillers, chemical peels, and Botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A), popularly known as ‘Botox’. The findings of this study are straight out of practice and experiences. The needs for rejuvenation and the appropriate choice of the medical treatments are age and gender-dependent so the focus of the study is on women aged 30 to 50 years.

Fillers can be permanent or temporary. Different products can be inserted under the skin in different layers to correct depressed folds, wrinkles, furrows, scars, angles, and flaccidity. The main concept is to create a volume or even to replace an original volume compromise for the aging process of the face and neck. Chemical peeling is the topical application of chemical agents to the skin, which causes controlled destruction of part of or the entire epidermis, with or without the dermis, leading to exfoliation and removal of superficial lesions, followed by regeneration of new epidermal and dermal tissues. BTX-A has a cosmetic effect on wrinkles and other facial skin-aging indicators. The results of this procedure last for at least three months and gradually start to wear off. There is a great variability in the duration between different people.

Several fillers, skin care techniques, chemical peelings, and other procedures can be combined with BTX-A use in order to prevent or to treat the aging process. To improve superficial skin texture and pigmentation problems chemical peels have been used successfully. With the development of new technologies and techniques, greater knowledge of tissue anatomy and physiology, stem cells, lasers and other energy sources, new fillers, and the ever more versatile use of BTX-A, a new perspective in facial rejuvenation treatments have been established. The appropriate evaluation and correct use of these minimally or less invasive techniques lead to a younger and healthier look for the treatment of facial aging.
