Anti Aging Treatment in Gurgaon

Ageing is a natural process that occurs as the body undergoes progressive changes over time. It is influenced by a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors.

The ageing process of the face involves a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Intrinsic ageing is influenced by genetic factors and hormonal changes that occur naturally. On the other hand, extrinsic ageing is primarily driven by external factors such as sun exposure, pollution, smoking, and lifestyle choices.

Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is a primary contributor to facial ageing. It leads to the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, resulting in the formation of wrinkles, pigmentation changes, and loss of skin elasticity.

Repeated facial expressions and muscle movements over time also contribute to the development of lines and wrinkles, especially in areas such as the forehead (frown lines), between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow's feet).

Furthermore, lifestyle choices like smoking, poor nutrition, inadequate skincare, and chronic stress can expedite the ageing process and contribute to visible signs of facial ageing.

While ageing is a natural and inevitable process, adopting a healthy lifestyle, safeguarding the skin from sun damage, practicing proper skincare habits, and considering medical or cosmetic interventions can help mitigate the visible effects of ageing and maintain a more youthful appearance.

Changes Caused by ageing

In relation to the skin, ageing leads to various changes that impact its appearance, texture, and function. Some typical changes associated with ageing skin include:

1. Prominent Facial Lines and Wrinkles

Wrinkles are folds or creases that appear as people get older and their skin becomes less elastic. The fine lines appear on a person’s face, where the skin naturally folds during facial expressions. They also appear early and more intensely at places more exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, back of arms, and feet. With the current advancement in techniques and technology, wrinkles and lines can be prevented and treated to a large extent.
 

2. Sagging Skin

Sagging skin is a common occurrence with age. As we get older, our skin naturally loses its elasticity and firmness due to several factors, including:

  • Decreased collagen and elastin production: Collagen and elastin are proteins that provide structural support and elasticity to the skin. With age, the production of these proteins decreases, leading to a loss of skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Reduction in fat and muscle mass: The underlying fat and muscle tissue that support the skin can diminish over time, leading to a loss of volume and sagging.
  • Gravity: The constant pull of gravity over time can contribute to the downward displacement of facial and body tissues, resulting in sagging skin.


3. Loss of Facial Volume

The causes of facial volume loss can be multifactorial and may include:

  • Ageing: The natural ageing process leads to a loss of collagen, elastin, and fat in the face, resulting in volume loss and sagging skin.
  • Fat and bone resorption: Over time, the fat pads in the face may shrink or shift, and bone loss can occur, leading to a loss of facial volume and definition.
  • Sun exposure: Prolonged and unprotected sun exposure can accelerate collagen breakdown and lead to premature volume loss in the face.
  • Lifestyle factors: Factors such as smoking, poor nutrition, and stress can contribute to accelerated ageing and volume loss in the face.


4. Double Chin

A double chin can be caused by various factors, including genetics, ageing, weight gain, and poor posture. It occurs when a layer of fat accumulates beneath the chin, resulting in a sagging appearance.


5. Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin occurs when your skin lacks moisture, resulting in dryness, tightness, and a dull appearance. Some common causes of dehydrated skin include:

  • Environmental factors: Exposure to harsh weather conditions, low humidity levels, and excessive heat or cold can contribute to skin dehydration.
  • Inadequate hydration: Not drinking enough water or consuming excessive amounts of dehydrating substances like alcohol or caffeine can lead to dehydrated skin.
  • Skincare routine: Using harsh cleansers, over-exfoliating, or using products with alcohol or drying ingredients can strip the skin of its natural moisture.
  • Age and hormonal changes: Our skin tends to produce less oil as we age, making it more prone to dehydration. Hormonal changes, such as during menopause, can also affect the skin's hydration levels.

6. Skin Texture Roughening

With the current advent of over-the-counter cosmetic products and their over-exploitation due to social media influencing has finally led to the majority of people having a rough skin texture which is overly sensitive as well. Some of the common causes for this have been listed below :

  • Sun damage: Prolonged sun exposure can lead to rough skin texture due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, resulting in a less smooth and supple appearance.
  • Age and natural ageing processes: As we age, the skin's ability to regenerate and produce collagen diminishes, leading to a rougher texture.
  • Lack of exfoliation: When dead skin cells build up on the skin's surface, it can result in a rough texture. Insufficient exfoliation can contribute to this buildup.
  • Dryness and dehydration: Insufficient moisture in the skin can lead to dryness, flakiness, and rough texture. Environmental factors, harsh cleansers, and inadequate hydration can contribute to skin dryness.


7. Ageing Hands and Feet

The ageing process is not limited to the face but can affect the hands and feet, leading to various changes in their appearance and condition. As we age, the skin naturally becomes thinner and loses elasticity, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.


8. Scanty Eyebrows

Scanty eyebrows can be a common concern with ageing, and several causes and treatment options exist to consider. Here's some information about the causes:

  • Ageing: As we age, hair follicles on the eyebrows may become less active, resulting in thinner and sparser eyebrows.
  • Hormonal changes: Hormonal imbalances, particularly during menopause, can contribute to eyebrow thinning.
  • Overplucking or excessive grooming: Frequent plucking or grooming of the eyebrows can damage hair follicles over time, leading to sparse growth.
  • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as alopecia areata or thyroid disorders, can cause eyebrow hair loss.


9. Ear Lobe Repair

Earlobe repair is a surgical procedure to address various conditions or concerns related to the earlobes. Here's some information about the indications and the procedure for earlobe repair:

Indications for Earlobe Repair:

  • Split or torn earlobes: This can occur due to trauma, such as earrings being pulled or heavy earrings causing the earlobe to stretch or tear.
  • Stretched or elongated earlobes: The prolonged wearing of heavy earrings or gauges can lead to stretched or elongated earlobes.
  • Earlobe piercings that have become too large or distorted: Over time, large-gauge or multiple piercings can cause the earlobe to become stretched or misshapen.
