Which advanced treatments can you consider for ageing skin?
In some cases, ageing takes such a toll on the skin that basic skin rejuvenation techniques tend to have limited effect. In these cases, more advanced anti-ageing treatments are often prescribed by a dermatologist. Depending on factors like skin concern to be treated, age, skin type, etc. , your dermatologist may suggest one or more of the following anti-ageing procedures/treatments.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
The biggest myth about facelifts is that they are restricted to deeply invasive procedures. The facts are far from that. HIFU It is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound waves to restore the skin's elasticity via natural collagen and cell regeneration. This is one of the most effective treatments for skin tightening and face lifting that is also non invasive.
Injectable Botulinum Toxin (BTX)
Botulinum Toxin (BTX), popularly known as bo - tox, is a purified protein that acts by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles. This weakens their contraction, thereby reducing wrinkles and fine lines. After a thorough examination, a qualified dermatologist calculates the exact amount of injectable needed, and arrives at the best application methodology as per the area to be injected
