Every organ in the human body gets its share from old age. Your vision decreases, your hearing decreases, the liver works less, the kidney works less. Your face also gets its share from this effect.
From this point of view, we can summarize facial aging under 3 main headings: First, loss of volume, secondly, loss of skin health, and thirdly, loosening of the carrier columns of the skin. We can consider volume loss under 2 main headings: Fat tissue loss and bone tissue loss.
Due to this loss of volume, collapse of the temples and forehead, collapse of the cheekbones, formation of detention pits, the formation of nasolabial grooves called grief lines, the formation of “Marionette” lines called Chinese mustache, and finally the formation of “Bulldog” appearance on the chin edges are observed. Even the nose widens and its tip begins to drop, the lips become thinner and the eyeballs begin to collapse into it.
On the skin, fixed wrinkles appear due to decreased collagen and increased elastin, along with staining due to sun damage. The loosening of the support columns also makes the face appear as if it has been partitioned, worsening the consequences of the overall volume loss.
Effects of aesthetic applications on the aging process
Aesthetic applications can be summarized as replacing the missing and missing and eliminating the excess. What is meant by replacing the deficiencies is to replace the genetically deficient ones in the chin, lips, jawline or wherever they are missing. Removing the excess can be summarized as eliminating the overworked muscle or muscle groups, and sometimes over-extended sagging tissues or restricting their activity.
We can detail these processes under two headings: First, to replace the volume lost with age with filling applications; The second is to replace the collagen lost with age with mesotherapy applications.
Surgical aesthetic or non-surgical aesthetic?
In medicine, surgical intervention is tried to be delayed as much as possible. Aging is a process and it is not possible to get rid of all problems with a single method. Therefore, non-surgical methods should be preferred whenever possible. However, if surgery is unavoidable, surgical treatment methods may be preferred.
For example, if you have a small nasal tip droop, it is unreasonable to have surgery when you can correct it with a filling in 1 minute. However, if you have a very large, curved nose or a nose that has breathing problems, you may prefer surgery.
When we look at the world in general, while non-surgical aesthetic applications increased by 1500% between 2000-2015, there was a decrease of around 50% in surgical aesthetics.
Are the complication rates high in the applications and how safe are the applications?
With well-trained hands and good products, the complication rate is very low, or even if there is a complication, the probability of permanent damage is very low. But unfortunately, with inexperienced hands or poor quality materials, you run the risk of serious problems.
Application age should be determined according to need
It is not possible to give a certain age to start aesthetic applications. This completely depends on the need. For example, botulinum toxin (botox) application can be done at the age of 18 if there is a very strong forehead muscle that has the potential to leave scars, or it may not be needed until the age of 50. However, in general, botox application should be started between the ages of 25-30.
Is it possible to achieve success in aesthetic applications that are started late?
While costs increase in delayed interventions, success rates decrease and additional applications are required. The process will take longer, but if you are patient enough, you will definitely see a certain success.
