Medical techniques seek to prevent, mitigate and correct the consequences of aging. Fillers are useful in localized problems of wrinkles and creases: they can be synthetic or natural (i.e. fat transfer of one's own fat), or a dermis fat graft, taken from old scar tissue.
In some cases a good option is intermediate or deep chemical peels, abrasion, or laser treatments when there are fine wrinkles, sun damage, and loss of skin elasticity.
Finally, also in the field of non-invasive procedures, Botox can be used to reduce the movement of specific muscles that are responsible for wrinkles that appear with movement of the facial muscles.
There is a wide range of surgical procedures such as 'lifting (rhytidectomy)' to choose from according to the anatomical conditions and the amount of skin damage the patient has. Procedures for the forehead such as a 'coronal' (traditional) brow lift or an 'Endoscopic' (minimal incision) brow lift, raise eyebrows and facilitate release of the expression muscles responsible for making frown lines between the eyebrows.
In the middle and lower face and neck, different techniques of 'rhytidectomy', which are better known the 'bilaminar' and 'SMAS' (Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System) can be used. In both cases excess skin is removed and the deposits of fat and flabby muscles are relocated and tightened.
Very often we apply multidisciplinary treatments in combinations to achieve higher quality results, and these last longer.
