As we age, our skin changes in many ways. We become slimmer, lose fat and no longer look as smooth and smooth as before. Veins and bones can be seen more easily. Scratches, cuts, or bumps may take longer to heal.
Spending years of tanning or being exposed to sunlight for a long time can cause wrinkles, dryness, age spots and even cancer. However, there are things you can do to protect your skin and make it feel and look better. The paradigm of “successful aging” is increasingly equated with minimizing the signs of aging on the skin, face and body. From this perspective, preventive aesthetic dermatology could complement the demand for healthy aging, treat or prevent certain skin disorders, especially skin cancer, and delay skin aging by combining local and systemic therapy methods, instrumental devices and invasive procedures.
The desired therapeutic anti-aging effect on the skin is a continuous, step-by-step process that combines several methods of biorevitalization and rejuvenation of the skin, the augmentation and restoration of each skin layer individually and in the light of many other factors, from lifestyle to immune, genetic, emotional and general health status. To protect your skin from the sun's damaging UV rays, you should use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day. You can also protect your skin from the sun in other ways. Wearing clothing that protects from the sun, such as long-sleeved shirts, hats and sunglasses, and avoiding the sun in the middle of the day, will reduce your exposure to aging and carcinogenic UV rays.
In addition to increasing collagen in the skin, they also act as antioxidants to absorb biological and environmental oxidative stress that accumulates and causes aging. A trained dermatologist can also identify skin cancers and other problems that go beyond cosmetic imperfections. None of this means that facial treatments don't feel good and don't improve the appearance of the skin for a few hours or even a few days or weeks. The main factors that contribute to the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes on the skin include normal aging, exposure to the sun (photoaging) and pollution, and the loss of subcutaneous support (adipose tissue between skin and muscles).
Other factors that contribute to skin aging include stress, gravity, daily facial movement, obesity, and even sleeping position. Regular BTX injections can delay the visible aging process by helping to control certain dynamic facial lines and wrinkles. The healthy and functional skin barrier is an important protector against dehydration, the penetration of various microorganisms, allergens, irritants, reactive oxygen species and radiation. It has been shown to reduce the signs of UV-induced premature skin aging such as wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and pigmentation.
The mechanism of action of BTX makes it an ideal agent for attacking the root cause of these dynamic lines. The breakdown of elastin fibers causes the skin to sag, stretch and lose its ability to contract after stretching. Currently several commercial preparations of BTX-A products are available for aesthetic uses. Chemical peels are methods that cause a chemical ablation of defined skin layers to induce uniform and tight skin as a result of regeneration and repair mechanisms after inflammation of the epidermis and dermis.
Microneedle facial treatments may actually have some benefits too. Gravity, facial movement, and sleeping position are secondary factors that contribute to skin changes.
