On average people take 5-10 selfies before getting that perfect “post-able” selfie… And the older you are, the more attempts you typically make to capture that perfect portrait.
Taking a selfie has become part of our culture. It is an important way of how we view ourselves and how others see us and our life adventures.
Your bone structure, muscles and fat content determine the look and shape of your face and body. Genetics determines some of these features, but you can improve others through non-surgical – as well as surgical – methods.
But before you jump into surgery, here are some of the non-surgical ways to restore your look for that perfect selfie.
Wrinkles and fine lines appear.
Lines can be improved with products such as Botox or Dysport. These products give you a more youthful look. In the hands of an expert and experienced doctor, these products are safe and effective.
We develop color changes in our skin
This can be due to years of sun exposure, medical problems, medication use….etc. The use of a good skin care regimen (such as iS Clinical) combined with regular chemical peels and/or laser treatments can restore and maintain healthier, more radiant looking skin.
We lose fat from our face giving us a tired and older look.
The good news is that fat transfer can be used to improve volume loss. Fat is a great natural filler. Fat can be taken from other areas of the body such as the abdomen or love handles and be used to enhance your face giving you a younger look. Fillers such as hyaluronic acid fillers are another great way to restore volume and provide you with a younger looking face.
We lose skin tightness making our face and other body parts look saggy and droopy.
As we age we lose collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, the 3 main components of skin elasticity. Several treatments are key for restoring skin elasticity. For example, Profound skin tightening delivers energy directly to where the collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are in our skin. This treatment stimulates your skin to regenerate the lost collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
