Facial Hair Rejuvenation

There is something so fascinating about our eyes. They convey how we feel, how we think and dive deep into our state of mind.  As William Shakespeare famously said, the eyes are the window to the soul! However, it is easy to suffer from aesthetic conditions around our eyes and especially our lower eyelid lines. So, this month’s focus will be all about how to make our eyes beautiful and how to get clear bright eyes through multiple tips, including Botox around the eyes. We will be exploring some of the causes of puffy eyes and dark circles and how we can find simple solutions to take care of these. We will also travel to Dubai to find some inspiration on eyebrows and how to have a killer look! And finally, stay tuned for tips on skin regimen to get the beautiful eyes that you deserve!

WHY IS THE SKIN AROUND YOUR EYES SO FRAGILE?

One of the main beauty tips for anti-ageing lies in the preservation of the periorbital region. That is the most sensitive skin around your eyes that will show signs of ageing quicker than other areas. It is 1.5 millimeters thinner than the average thickness of the rest of your facial skin, making it more vulnerable to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This is usually assisted by the fact that we have fewer oil glands in the periorbital region that the rest of our face, creating a tired look and a thin fragile skin. It is not a hopeless case, however, and we can prevent and remedy aesthetic eye issues. By understanding the problems, we can find solutions to cater for every particular case. Solutions range from dermal fillers, mesotherapy, Botox to prevent crow’s feet, and even the best sunscreen to protect your face! So don’t be demotivated, we are in this together!

What is mesotherapy and how can it remedy dark circles under your eyes?

First, it is important to understand why we have dark circles under the eyes. This can be due to various reasons, such as; a bad diet, smoking, allergic reactions, irregular sleep cycle or even genetic predisposition. Dark circles usually don’t reflect internal organ problems, but ligaments that hold the fatty tissue under our eyes start to show, when fat tissue and bone in this area disappear progressively.  The appearance of bags and dark circles under our eyes can also be due to a bad circulation of the periorbital region, which can result in fluid retention and under eye circles.

SUFFER FROM DARK CIRCLES OR PUFFY EYES? CONSIDER DERMAL FILLERS!

We’ve looked at the advantages of mesotherapy in correcting moderate dark circles, but what if the problem is deeper than mere pigmentation of the skin? Hollowness under the eyes can occur as we age, where blood vessels are visible when stretching the skin. The skin becomes prominent to enlarged capillaries, which is the result of reduced function of fibroblast, free radicals and UV sun radiation.

Botox around the eyes has become an effective solution for softening wrinkles on the crow’s feet area, but it is a delicate area that needs to be approached carefully as not all patients are eligible for it.

The best time to use Botox around our eyes to solve crow’s feet is when wrinkles are still very thin, so the process can be as efficient as possible.

Injection in the crow feet area needs to be done carefully, to avoid touching other muscles of the face which can sometimes cause sagging cheeks. Also, caution needs to be taken to make sure there is no change in the shape of the eyes after injection has been done.

When wrinkles are more pronounced, I use a combination of Botox and derma fillers. I never inject Botox for the crow’s feet area without addressing the forehead too. My 3 Botox areas focus on including the other muscles, which creates a better end result in synergy with a brow lift effect.

SHAPING & ACHIEVING AN EYEBROW LIFT WITH BOTOX

Have you ever considered a brow lift with Botox? Nowadays, having the perfect shaped eye brows has been an essential must for women. It is hard however to achieve that balance naturally, which is why I recommend a Botox treatment!

There are muscles that depress the brow, and muscles that lift the brow. By using Botox, we can paralyze the muscles that depress the brow and manage to give it a slight elevation. Each individual requires different assessment to make sure the lift complements the rest of their face, which I will carefully assess during a facial consultation.

The consultation is required to conduct a detailed understanding of what the patient needs. Once this is done, I will carefully apply Botox in the muscles that depress the brow, which causes it to relax and lift its position. It is a good non-surgical brow lift option, however, there are limits on how much the brow can be lifted.

I can shape your brows in different ways too, depending on whether you want a raised arched brow, a raised horizontal brow or even raising the tail of the brow. We can even consider adding fillers alongside Botox, as they can provide an excellent end result.

So why not book today an appointment with Dr. Fern to find out what is suitable for you?

WHAT SKINCARE REGIME SHOULD I HAVE TO ENHANCE MY SKIN TONE?

A regular skin regimen is the first step towards maintaining a healthy skin tone and prevent wrinkles. Now, what is the correct skincare regime? Do I have to spend a lot of money to get a cream that works? Which one is the best? Here is my skin care advice:

Exfoliate your skin
The correct skin care should include exfoliation once a week and use of serum on an everyday basis. The most expensive creams are not always the best creams. The molecules in most of the creams that are on the market are too big to pass the skin barrier.

Use products that will penetrate the skin layer
I like and highly recommend the Agera range product. AGERA® Rx is the first skin care range in the world to use tiny bio emulsion particles to encapsulate its powerful anti-ageing ingredients and deliver them deep within the skin (see diagrams). These minuscule particles penetrate the skin’s outer layer to ensure minimum irritation and maximum results.

DRACULA THERAPY (PRP) THE MOST VERSATILE AND EFFICIENT SKINCARE TREATMENT

What is ‘Dracula therapy’ (PRP)? How does it work?

‘Dracula Therapy’ or ‘Vampire Facelift Treatment’ involves re-injecting the platelets rich plasma (PRP) to help to rejuvenate your skin for a more radiant complexion and remove face wrinkles for a more youthful look.

The procedure will require me to draw a small amount of blood from your arm and then spin it in a centrifuge until the red blood cells separate from the platelets and plasma. I will then inject the platelet-rich plasma back into your troublesome areas to smooth and tighten your skin.

The Dracula treatment is different to fillers but also works in a way that helps you achieve a wrinkle-free complexion. It generates type 1 collagen which will help to create more blood cells and help them function. This is what provides the skin with a filling effect that looks natural.

Why get the Dracula treatment (PRP) ?

People choose PRP because it is natural and autologous (obtained from the same individual), and you can also mix it in with other facial skin care treatments. You can mix it with hyaluronic acid and other types of treatments to have a long-lasting effect with the least side-effects.

 

  • The procedure should not take longer than 90 minutes with little to no downtime.
  • Duration of the results: 1-2 years (1-3 courses recommended from 1 month apart).
  • Results start to be visible within a few weeks.

MESO BOTOX CAN REDUCE SKIN PORES AND FINE WRINKLES

Most of my client’s requests involve smoothing wrinkles with Botox, especially in the upper part of the face. I like to point out the importance of botox to my patients as well and other rejuvenation procedures in the mid-face, lower face, neck, and décolletage to avoid an unbalanced result. Meso botox is a diluted botox concentration and it is the perfect solution for a balanced and natural result on the entire face.

First I inject little drops of the meso botox evenly across the lower part of the face. It relaxes the superficial layer of facial muscle which is responsible for fine lines and wrinkles. This technique does extremely well on the lower cheek to avoid skin crinkling, and in the neck area on the platysma bands.

The skin becomes smoother, tighter and it reduces the sebaceous activity – the “open” pores appear smaller and fewer in number.

WHICH FOUNDATION SHOULD I USE TO KEEP A HEALTHY AND EVEN SKIN TONE?

Often my patients are asking me which foundation to use. Unless you use professional make-up artist cosmetics used in the film industry, the cosmetics you find at the drugstore don’t have nearly enough pigmentation nor a high enough standard of staying power as camouflage foundation. They are simply not designed for the same thing.

Lycogel is designed for patients with scars from plastic surgery who would want to hide signs of their procedures. Post-surgery skin is often red and inflamed, discolored and particularly sensitive to the sun and the elements. Lycogel was therefore very conscious of wanting to create a product that would help accelerate the healing process rather than blocking pores and aggravating the skin further.

WHY DO WE LOVE HIGH CHEEKBONES?

Men and women with naturally high cheekbones are instantly thought of as more beautiful, with youthful faces and distinctive features. For women, big eyes and a thin jaw complete the look. Facial rejuvenation no longer focuses on just treating superficial signs of aging (such as wrinkles) – it is a tridimensional approach to achieve a deep tissue regeneration. Dermal fillers with their different viscosities and the MD codes from Dr Mauricio de Maio help us creating attractive high cheekbones.

DID YOU KNOW SLEEPING POSITION AFFECTS WRINKLES ?

We’ve all heard the term ‘getting your beauty sleep’. Well, as it turns out, not all sleeping positions are beneficial to our looks! In fact, a study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal says that sleeping on our side or stomach is linked with getting wrinkles! Putting our head on the pillow with our face squished against it can, over time, cause distortions to the skin. The repeated pressure each night can cause patterns of ‘sleep wrinkles’ to appear on our face.
