Mastering the 4 Rs of Anti-Ageing

 

We are all too familiar with the 3 Rs of conservation and preservation of our environment: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

But how aware are we of the 4 Rs of anti-ageing, the key to the preservation of our youth?

 

Knowing what happens to our facial anatomy as we age is the first step to knowing what we can do for graceful ageing.

   

Four-Key-Layers 5

 

At IYAC, we help you address the Rs you need for a natural-looking anti-aging regime.

  

Skin

 

In the skin, we lose collagen and hyaluronic acid. This results in the skin becoming thinner, less elastic, with pores becoming bigger. Cumulative sun exposure also leads to photodamage, with age spots or pigmentations.

  

1. Retexture  aging skin with: 

 

Laser Circuit

For stimulating collagen and clearing deep-seated pigmentations, evening out skin tone and improving texture.

With no downtime, this treatment gives gradual and cumulative improvements to the skin and is ideal as regular maintenance, like a gym work-out.

BB Laser

This non-ablative skin resurfacing laser reaches the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate even more collagen to lend support to the pores.

Choose from a spectrum of intensities according to your needs.

- BB Luxe – For hydrating sensitive skin, no downtime, repeat monthly

- BB Express – For gradual & cumulative improvements, no downtime, repeat monthly

- BB Moderate – For more visible improvements with limited downtime

Hydrating Drops

Profhilo works as an all-rounder bioremodelling skin moisturiser.

This 100% pure hyaluronic acid not only replenishes the naturally-occurring lubricant in our skin that depletes with age, but also triggers a multi-layer collagen renewal for skin firming.

Just 5 injection points on each side of the face with up to 1 day of downtime.

 

Fat pads

 

Our facial fat is organised into specific compartments known as fat pads. With age, the fat pads lose volume and sag, resulting in the midface losing structure and fullness while the lower face looks heavy, like a deflated and inverted ‘V’. With the lost fullness, the skin also hangs loose.

 

2. Reposition  fat pads by:

   

Ultherapy or HIFU

Focused ultrasound energies of Ultherapy or HIFU heat and tighten the surrounding connective tissue around the fat pads and stimulate collagen in the deep and superficial layers of the skin to provide support for a natural uplift.

No downtime, repeat annually.

Botox Facelift

An innovative technique that places tiny amounts of diluted Botox into the skin along the outline of the face to stimulate collagen for a fresh-looking tangential lift. This means a slimmer looking face.

No downtime, repeat every 6 months.

 

 Muscles

 
Repetitive habitual movements tense up our muscles, creating fines lines and eventual deep crease lines.  Repeated teeth grinding bulks up the jaw muscles while repeated facial expressions lead to a constant angry or worried look.
 

3. Relax  facial tension with:

 

Botox

A purified protein to soften the appearance of forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines or achieve a slimmer lower face.

No downtime, repeat 4 to 6 months or as when needed.

  

Bone

 

We lose bone mass as we age. Combined with the changes in the supporting tissues and fat pads, we begin to look tired and haggard. While rebuilding bone mass can be achieved to some extent in other parts of the body with calcium, vitamin D and exercise, it’s difficult to do isometric exercises on the face. The areas around the eyes and cheeks are the first to show signs of ageing, following by the chin, temples and forehead. We use a filler to revitalise these hollows.

 

4. Revolumise  facial volume loss with:

 

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in our skin, is placed strategically within the supporting tissues to restore support.

Same-day results, minimal downtime, lasts 6-12 months.

Radiesse

A calcium-based collagen stimulating gel that corrects moderate to severe depressions and hollows.

Same- day results, minimal downtime, lasts 1 year or more.

Sculptra

Poly-L-lactic acid (similar to AHA, a fruit acid) that stimulates your body’s own collagen renewal to treat deep wrinkles and folds for a more healthy and youthful appearance.

Gradual & natural results, minimal downtime, lasts up to 2 years.
