Improving the understanding of anatomy and physiology of the aging face laid the foundation for adopting a wider and more comprehensive face rejuvenation approach, emphasizing individual wrinkle treatment and lifting procedures to a holistic paradigm that takes into account the whole face and its structural framework.
Although preventive strategies are common in many medical arenas, facial prophylaxis of aging, especially early treatment of signs of aging before progressing, is a relatively new concept in aesthetic medicine that attempts to delay or prevent surgery.
FACIAL RIDERS OF AGED WOMEN
Changes related to age occur in all facial tissues and structures, and these changes in an area can cause a cascading effect in the adjacent areas. Additionally, there is a growing recognition of the complex interface between structural remodeling of the face, volume loss and age-related skin changes. Consequently, non-surgical methods that take into account the entire face and the structural framework by using more minimally invasive technologies and treatments can provide a more holistic approach and prevent further deterioration.
Facial aging is characterized by a variety of features such as upper eyelid dermatochalasis, periorbital wrinkles, prominent tissue of eyelid tissues, head forehead, such wrinkles of the face as nasolabial folds, perioral lines and smile, and volume changes. These characteristics result from a complex interaction of anatomical, histological and physiological changes that affect the bone, ligaments, fat and upper, middle and lower skin of the face.
VOLUME CHANGES AND STRUCTURAL SUPPORT
In addition to facial remodeling, rising evidence shows that remodeling of facial fat takes place over time and contributes to the aging face. In the face of youth, deep and superficial fat is balanced, creating a uniform distribution of facial fullness. As the face ages, redistribution and lowering of facial fat swabs contribute to the older appearance.
For example, loss of volume in deep mid-fat buffers diminishes the anterior projection of the tissue, resulting in “pseudoptosis” and the occurrence of nasolabial fangs. Atrophy occurs in the periorbital, forehead, buccal, temporal and perioral areas, which leads to the fall due to the relative excess of the remaining skin.
Redistribution or loss of volume in temporal, suborbital and oral fat buffers leads to age-related changes in several areas of the face, including cheeks, temples, and nasolabial folds. Superficial and deep volume loss can result in wrinkles, folds, and lines on the face of the aged face.
Rejuvenating with the new soft tissue filler AQUAfilling®, designed to restore lost volume in both superficial and deep structural features, can provide benefits to prevent the aging process of the face. It can make correct corrections of facial facials, so you can enjoy beautiful looks. AQUAfilling® can be applied to smooth face wrinkles such as nasolabial folds, smiley and perioral lines, jawbone and malaria wrinkles.
The balance between collagen synthesis and the production of collagen degradation enzymes is directed towards degradation, and the aging process continues to advance in a sustained cycle of collagen loss and fibroblast collapse. The described process is clinically performed in dynamic and static wrinkles, dermal atrophy and elastosis.
Other signs of aging are dischromic manifestations, such as senile lentigine, non-uniform hyperpigmentation, telangiectasia, rough skin and enlarged pores.
