Skin changes are among the most visible signs of ageing. Skin ageing first becomes apparent when the person is in their early 30s with the development of subtle changes, such as fine expression lines around the eyes and mouth and deepening of the tear trough, giving the face a somewhat tired appearance. Do you look older than your classmates? Dublin Cosmetic Doctors, lead by Dr Kahlout as an expert in facial ageing further observed the distinct features of ageing progress with appearance of deeper and more permanent lines of facial expression that do not disappear when the face is relaxed leading to, Crows feet, Frown lines, Smile lines and Forehead lines. Furthermore there is loss of skin firmness and tone leading to sallow, dry, rough skin and more noticeable larger pore. In time age spots develop with uneven pigmentation and seborrhoic keratosis. Skin thinning with appearance of dilated blood vessels and spider veins adds to the complete ageing face picture.
Exciting new facts have emerged as we further understand the structural changes and physics of the ageing in the face. Previously it was thought that wrinkles, folds and skin sagging develop due to gravity pulling the skin down. What we know now is that it is not the stretching and drooping of the skin that accounts for the wrinkles and folds we see as we get older. The most significant contribution to the aged appearance is loss of volume in the skin, soft tissues, fat and bone that creates the visible signs of ageing. Ageing changes are more like a deflating balloon than a descent due to the action of gravity. Volume loss leads to the shifts in facial shape, balance and proportions. We can visualise this by looking at the difference between grapes and raisins.
Deeper structural changes in the ageing face lead to the appearance of the more profound signs of ageing:
- Sunken cheeks
- Appearance of jowls
- Loose, sagging skin of the lower face
- Drooping eyebrows and eyelids
- Thinning lips with down-turned, deepening corners
Facial remodelling using the famous 8 point lift is a new way of reshaping the face using fillers like Radiesse, Restylane and Juvéderm as well as collagen enhancers like Ellansé or indeed the patients own fat cells. The 8 point softlift is non-invasive, quick and relatively painless. Final results can last for up to 18 months with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers while collagen enhancers like Ellansé will last for up to four years. Moreover we can get subtle luminancy and volume correction for more than 5 years when usung our patients own fat cells. Dr Kahlout is a facial volume restoration expert who has sculpted the faces of hundreds of patients since developing the ideology in 2008. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin, Dr Kahlout first consults with the patient and advises them on the areas that can be worked on. Then the area to be treated is mapped out on their faces with a marker prior to strategically restoring the individual volume loss unique to each patient.
