The passage of time leaves a number of visible marks on his face: they can be displayed with the pattern of the ceiling of a room which is timeworn.

We always find three "leaks":

  • The first leak would be the entire area around the eyes, and is the appearance of lateral wrinkles or crow's feet, between the eyebrows and forehead and falling tails eyebrow with a progressive excess skin upper eyelid. These signals are causing the expression of anger and fatigue that occurs with facial aging.
  • The second "leak" would be the perioral or around the lip area, and is the progressive loss of lip profile with the appearance of wrinkles on the upper lip, accentuating the rictus and lowering the corners of the mouth showing an expression of sadness.
  • The third leak would oval facial sagging due to gravity, causing loss of projection of the cheekbones and descent and sagging cheek and neck.

At three leaks must be added the deterioration of the "painting", ie the skin that has lost elasticity, color, moisture and support, be cracking and appear wrinkles, furrows, spots and tumorcitos, warts, moles or fibroids.

The picture, even progressive can be devastating for the patient, but fortunately today without surgery techniques to combat it are very effective.

Without surgery techniques for facial rejuvenation

The first leak in the area around the eyes is solved very effectively with the application of Botulinum Toxin or Botox. The results are truly spectacular and natural whenever treatment is properly applied by a good expert medical. It is recommended to put twice a year.

The second leak, which affects the area of the lips, is solved by the application of hyaluronic acid by implants or fillers, thereby achieving a satisfactory correction of defects and last approximately one year.

The third leak in the oval face is solved by the application of other safe, effective and approved as calcium hydroxyapatite for example, by implants, such as hyaluronic acid and sometimes with thread lift products, although this should be the last option because it presents higher rate of complications.

Skin (paint) is treated with chemical peels, which are soft and without side effects, nothing to do with those seen years ago. Also by applying products revitalization through mesotherapy, skin lightening products for medical use for stains and removing the "tumorcitos" laser or radiofrequency electrocoagulation.

All this gives skin its elasticity properties, moisturizing, whitening, firming and radiance that was lost.


Benefits of facial rejuvenation without surgery

They are easier, less invasive techniques, without recovery periods after treatment with always more progressive and cumulative results as to the benefits.

In addition in 2016 today the aesthetic medicine has very safe products and very effective with respect to the results few side effects, non-surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation have had a dramatic breakthrough in recent years.


Resorbable products for a natural rejuvenation

Results vary on average between 6 months and 2 years depending on the techniques and products ,, but bear in mind that the fact of expiration should not be a problem, quite the opposite: if something has learned in recent years it is that the final products have problems or complications in some cases plus a final and inert product is not going to evolve with the patient 's body, can not have a biological behavior, and therefore something that today has put in a place of the face and that is very well, in a few years maybe nothing remains well, this is a very good choice resorbable and perishables.
