The first thing that people see of us is our face. Today, it is possible to improve facial features, to reduce evidence of ageing, and to redefine its structure, thanks to the techniques of aesthetic medicine.
Slowing down the passage of time on the face
Numerous techniques allow us to reduce wrinkles, marks and other unwanted changes due to ageing facial skin, and the loss of tissue tone. The most well-known and widely spread is by injection of botulinum toxin or botox. Relatively inexpensive, and not requiring hospitalisation, this solution has quickly become an essential part of facial beauty techniques. It works through neurotoxin having a temporary effect on muscular contraction.
Hyaluronic acid is also regularly employed to treat facial ageing. It allows us to fill out wrinkles and lines, or treat loss of tissue elasticity, which leads to ‘drooping’. Injections can be administered to any area of the face. The gel is injected at various depths of the face in order to best meet the required volume of the targeted zone.
Aesthetic medicine can redefine the face
In certain cases, or desires, it is necessary to redefine the general appearance of the face. Feminisation or masculinisation of facial features is commonly requested in the west. Basically, some people feel the need to underline their gender through their face. Another common example of facial redefinition is the high demand for westernisation of Asian facial features. Mostly sought after by women, these increasingly popular procedures make the face appear more Caucasian.
In both cases, work must be carried out on all parts of the face and at various depths. Intervention is carried out on the skin as well as on the bone structure and cartilage. Aesthetic medicine allows us to redefine the mouth, the chin, the cheekbones, and even the nose, in order to achieve the most natural result possible and the most suited to the patient’s original facial structure.
